Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 7: “The Queen’s Gambit”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 7, I realized that “everybody has their weaknesses,” but sometimes we can turn our weakness into our strength.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “The Queen’s Gambit,” Murphy agrees to a dangerous chess game with Sheidheda. Meanwhile, Emori attempts to maintain order in Sanctum, Echo has trouble dealing with her grief, and Madi just wants to play soccer.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 7 are:

“She’s the key to everything…”

OK, we get it. Clarke is the key. But why is she the key? After Gabriel is captured and brought to Anders, he learns that they need his help. In order for the true power of the stones to be unlocked, we need the key, but we still don’t know why Clarke is that key.

Gabriel agrees to help, but I’m curious to know more. We get this big talk about transcendence, which makes me wonder if Clarke is basically the key to the entire universe?

“How much do you want to know?”

Diyoza is more than thrilled to be reunited with her daughter, Hope, but she also doesn’t want her to follow in her footsteps. I think it’s safe to say that Hope did the right thing by training to fight, but I’m not sure she’s ready to truly face off against her bad-ass mother.

Hope learns a little bit more about her mother’s past and her father, but it’s clear that she is still trying to form some kind of identity. Let’s just hope this reunion isn’t short lived…

“It’s not your fault.”

I’ll take a Bellamy flashback until we get some real confirmation on his actual fate. I still don’t want to believe that our beloved character is dead, but it’s safe to say that Echo is not handling this well and I can’t say that I really blame her.

During the flashback, Bellamy reminds Echo that they are a team and talks to her about loyalty. Echo says that loyalty can’t be a weakness, but perhaps there is a lesson in here somewhere for her. Oh and we get a steamy Becho kiss in there…

In present day, Octavia tries to get through to Echo, understanding what she is going through, but Echo uses pain and anger to fight through. She slices her own face and is ready to fight, but is she going down a dangerous path?

Meanwhile, Emori finally gets her moment in the spotlight. She has the chance to host a gathering that will bring the people of Sanctum together, but this is easier said than done. Emori is getting used to her new life, but she also remembers where she came from.

However, Emori’s plan goes south when Nikki crashes the party. There’s a new group taking over Sanctum and it looks like Emori is in some serious trouble now.

The most interesting part of the episode was the chess showdown between Sheidheda (Russell Prime) and our very own cockroach, John Murphy. Murphy is up for the challenge, but the stakes are high and he knows that people will die if he loses.

There is this manipulative long con going on between the two of these characters and we finally see just what Sheidheda is capable of. We get a shout-out to Lexa, as Murphy brings her up to get under Sheidheda’s skin and we know that she is the one and true Commander!

Sheidheda talks a lot about survival, but he also brings up Murphy’s feelings for Emori. Murphy has always been one of my favorite characters on the show and part of that is because he really plays the jaded anti-hero so well. He makes the wrong decisions sometimes, but his love for Emori has really helped him became a hero.

We soon discover that Sheidheda was merely using Murphy to stall so that violence could erupt during Emori’s gathering. Murphy may have lost the match, but Sheidheda shouldn’t underestimate him.

Once again, this was another fantastic episode. At the very end, Clarke and the others arrive and meet up with Octavia and the characters being held captive. Clarke is exactly where Anders wants her to be and he wakes up…Bill. Remember him? He was the leader of the Second Dawn cult and knew Becca.

It looks like we’ll catch up with all of that in next week’s flashback episode.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 6: “Nakara”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 6, I realized that leadership is far from easy, but sometimes we need a warrior to remind us about what’s truly important.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In last night’s episode, “Nakara,” Clarke and Raven deal with a new threat on a new planet. Meanwhile, Indra attempts to motivate Madi to lead, Memori provides some inspirational words, and Diyoza’s fate is revealed.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 6 are:

“What do you want?”

There are certainly a lot of threats brewing on the final season of The 100, but let’s not discount the angry widow, Nikki, who is not going to forget about what Raven’s actions cost her. She now realizes that Murphy was never in any real danger and wants revenge.

Oh and all of the guns are missing too…watch your back, Raven!

“Something’s down here…”

Meanwhile, we finally check back in on Clarke, Raven, and the others on the mysterious planet they stumbled upon, which seems to be some kind of a burial planet. There are a lot things not adding up, but Raven thinks that she can track down one of the stones so they can get back on track.

Only they travel into a cave to get the stone and are attacked by some kind of creepy alien creature. To make matters worse, they soon discover that the cave they are in is actually a living organism and they are its next meal…

“Mom…”

Diyoza gets some well deserved screen time in this episode and kicks ass! Wow, she is an unstoppable force! After taking out some guards with brutal intensity, she meets up with Hope, Octavia, Gabriel, and Echo. We get this heart-warming reunion between Diyoza and her grown up daughter and Octavia tells her that Bellamy is dead. (I still think he’s alive)

The reunion is short-lived; however, as they need to find a way out of there and fast. Luckily, Levitt is back, but he’s been demoted to a janitor. He helps Octavia and her friends once again before getting punched in the face for appearances. I could absolutely feel the spark between these two, but poor Levitt may be out of luck in the love department.

After trusting Levitt, the group learns that the exit may not be survivable and Gabriel refuses to take any chances, but now his actions have led to them all getting captured so we’re kind of back where we started…

But at least everyone is together again!

“You’re a good person. Maybe the best I know.”

As the clock starts ticking inside the living organism, Raven breaks down and tells Clarke that she was afraid and that she should have gone inside of the reactor herself. Clarke reminds her about how many lives she has saved with her actions and tells her that she is the best person she knows in a truly touching moment.

Over the seasons, Clarke and Raven’s friendship has been through a lot. It’s kind of crazy to think about how Clarke initially stole Raven’s boyfriend in season one. We also can’t forget about the beautiful relationship between Raven and Clarke’s mother, suggesting that these two are really more like sisters. They may not always see eye to eye on everything, but in the end, they are loyal to one another.

Luckily, the group makes it out of there in the nick of time with the anomaly stone, but let’s hope they arrive in a more secure location next…

“We are Wonkru!”

Back on Sanctum, Indra has her hands full with Sheidheda in Russell Prime’s body. She recognizes that she needs a leader that her people will follow in order to avoid more blood and destruction.

Indra tries to recruit Madi and explains that it has always been her destiny to be the Commander, but Madi ends up having second thoughts after getting a taste for a somewhat normal childhood. She has a panic attack and runs off before making her big speech, but Memori reminds Indra that she has always been the true leader of Wonkru.

Indra explains that her role has always been a warrior, but she is about to ascend to something even greater as she stands up in front of her people and tells them that she will lead them. Her speech is truly moving and motivational as she challenges anyone who opposes her with her bad-ass fighting skills.

I thought this moment was truly spectacular. Indra has been in the shadows for quite some time, but she really is the heart and soul of Wonkru. She reminds them that they are all one clan now. Watch out, Sheidheda. The true commander is coming for you!

Overall, this was another jam-packed episode with a lot going on. I still want to know where Gaia is and I also want some confirmation on Bellamy’s true fate.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!
