My Ship of the week ending 6/29/19 on TV goes to…

John Murphy and Emori on The 100, better known as Memori! The two outsiders on the show who somehow found their way to one another fly under the radar sometimes, but their love is real and inspiring.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  There is just something so incredibly sweet about these two together.  I fell in love with this ship a long time ago on the show and it continues to make me melt.  Murphy has always been the bad boy, but he has the potential to be redeemed by love when he meets Emori.  Emori is not without her faults either, as she has trouble trusting others and both characters were used to putting their own survival ahead of helping others in the past.  However, that starts to change when they meet each other. 

It seems like Emori has made more progress with her moral compass, as our favorite bad boy cannot always be trusted, but there is something magical about these two together.  Even though Murphy can be a bit harsh with others, he wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to his feelings for Emori.  We’ve been lacking some serious screen time for these two for a while, but I was happy to see some swoon-worthy moments between them in season 6 episode 8.  

Murphy gets down on one knee and asks Emori if she can love him forever.  Even though Murphy is talking about siding with Josephine here and accepting immortality, I can’t skip over the sweetness of this moment.  Emori ultimately has to choose between staying loyal to Murphy and doing the right thing.  Even though she ends up telling Bellamy about John’s plan to get rid of Clarke, she still cares for him so deeply.

Later on, when Josephine stabs Murphy, Emori rushes over to his side and tells him to stay with her.  Through it all, Memori continues to touch my heart and soul.  Even though I was getting some vibes between Murphy and Raven for a while, I think that Memori is end game.  They accept each other for who they are, faults and all.

What’s next for Memori?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but it looks like they are in a lot of trouble.  They are both taken prisoner by the Primes and Murphy’s injury looks pretty bad, so we will have to see if they can survive what happens next.  I’m hoping so, but immortality may be out of reach for Murphy now, but perhaps he can realize that having the woman he loves with him is rewarding enough.  I can’t wait to see what happens next for them!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 8: “Another Episode of No Good Choices”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 8, I learned that sometimes you may love someone too much to lose them, but is it possible to take this too far?  Immortality may seem like the answer, but there are always consequences.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Old Man and the Anomaly,” Diyoza and Octavia continue on their quest to find Gabriel and discover a shocking truth.  Meanwhile, Josephine attempts to eliminate Clarke once and for all, Madi seeks out revenge, and Emori is presented with an impossible choice.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 8 are:

“We’re gonna get her back.”

In the beginning of the episode, Bellamy lets the rest of the group know that he believes that Clarke is still alive and they try to come up with a plan to get Josephine out of there.  Bellamy recognizes that perhaps they need Raven, but she is a little busy helping Abby right now.  Bellamy seems focused on saving Clarke, but Jordan wants to help his new girlfriend, Delilah, as well.  Only Bellamy recognizes that this may not be possible, but he suggests that they focus on Clarke, even though Madi has other ideas and thinks that they should just kill them all.  It looks like the group is not in full agreement here, but will they be able to work together to save Clarke before it’s too late?

“Say hi to Gabriel…”

Hey Gabriel, how are you?  Spoiler alert, Xavier, who has been helping Diyoza and Octavia, is actually Gabriel.  An interesting reveal for sure and it’s clear that he still has feelings for Josephine, but she thinks that he is dead.  So there’s that, but there is also this weird anomaly and some trippy crazy stuff going on.  Gabriel tells them that the anomaly can show you your greatest fears and desires or a combination of both.

Diyoza and Octavia begin hallucinating and Diyoza sees her daughter and ends up walking into some kind of green energy to find her.  Octavia follows her and ends up coming out of the green energy completely healed, but where is Diyoza?  I am still a little fuzzy on all of this anomaly stuff, but hopefully we will get some answers soon.  Either way, I was happy to see that Octavia is all right.  We would be lost without you, Blodreina!

“To glory and grace of the Primes…”

We have already seen some signs that Madi is headed to the dark side and is being influenced by the Dark Commander, but she begins to act on these feelings now, taking her revenge on some of the Primes.  After Madi murders two members, Jordan steps in front of her to save Delilah and ends up getting stabbed.  Poor Jordan.  Madi is going down a dark path, but will anyone be able to stop her?  Even after she hears that Clarke is technically still alive, she still wants to kill everyone, but it seems like there are a lot of other things going on at once to focus too much attention on her, but I would like a Madi centric episode soon!  I have to say that Madi makes a terrific bad-ass, but I hope that she doesn’t continue to go down this path of destruction.

“So much for forever.”

Murphy approaches Emori during the episode and proposes…only he’s not asking for her hand in marriage just yet.  Murphy tells Emori about achieving immortality and asks her if she can love him forever.  I thought this was a really sweet moment for Memori, but Josephine/Clarke interrupts the love fest, reminding them that they are running out of time to complete the surgery.  You know, because “brain surgery in a machine shop…what can go wrong?”  Emori is clearly conflicted about what to do next since she ultimately has to choose between the man she loves and doing the right thing, but she comes through and tells Bellamy what is going on. 

Josephine/Clarke refuses to go down without a fight and ends up stabbing Murphy in the leg.  Emori and Murphy are taken as prisoners and aren’t talking just yet, but our friend Murphy is no stranger to torture.  Even though Emori has a moral compass, she still loves Murphy with all her heart and begs him to stay with her.  Let’s hope that Murphy will be OK so that he can try and make amends, but can we really trust him anymore?

“If you had the chance to bring back someone you love…would you?”

Abby continues to be blinded by love, refusing to give up on Marcus.  I admire their love and devotion so much, but is Abby being selfish here?  Raven tries to talk some sense into her, explaining that she is essentially killing someone else to save Marcus, but Abby will not leave him.  Raven thinks of Abby as a mother and hopes that she can save her, but I am very worried about Abby’s actions.  The switch is successful as a man wakes up as Marcus, but he is shocked when he sees his own lifeless body and asks, “What have you done?” 

I don’t think that Marcus will take this too well and now I’m worried that we won’t see Henry Ian Cusick on the show anymore and he is one of my favorite actors.  I know that anything is possible on this show, but I’m not sure how I feel about someone else  being Marcus.  Either way, it looks like Marcus has a lot to deal with now and many of the other characters have been left with uncertain fates as well.  Murphy and Jordan were both brutally stabbed, Diyoza disappeared into the anomaly, and Josephine is still in Clarke’s body.  How will this all unfold?  Stay tuned!  New episodes return July 9th!
