Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 3: “False Gods”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 3, I was reminded that “wanting to die and facing it are two different things.” 

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

In last night’s episode, “False Gods,” Raven makes a tough decision for the good of Sanctum, but has she crossed a line in doing so? Meanwhile, Clarke deals with her own actions and Wonkru learns the truth about Madi.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 3 are:

5

“Either we live together or die apart.”

I don’t know about you, but I found myself repeating Jack Shephard’s infamous line from LOST: “Live together, die alone,” but I suppose Russell Prime (Sheiheda) changed it up just enough…

Either way, Russell is about to be burned at the stake, but things get complicated when there is a divide between Sanctum. Clarke realizes that they will now need to keep Russell alive, which means that Sheidheda’s plan is working all to well.

4

“Fighting is what we are.”

During the episode, Clarke deals with the consequences of her actions, realizing that she lost herself when she called for Russell’s life. She stands before her mother’s grave and tells her that she will do her best to make her proud, but Clarke is clearly having a tough time here.

Clarke comes to the realization that they keep ending up in the same place and that perhaps “fighting is what they are.” We know that the end is in sight here, but is there a way for Clarke to help her people finally find some kind of normalcy and peace? Let’s hope so.

I am also loving the new friendship between Clarke and Gaia and perhaps there is a little bit more here to ship. I’m a Bellarke fan for life, but I can’t ignore some of the vibes being thrown our way.

3

“We’ll all die…”

Oh, is that all. As if Sanctum doesn’t have enough to deal with, Raven stumbles upon an unstable reactor that could destroy everyone. She is faced with a difficult task, but is up for the challenge with Memori’s help, but I’m not sure that everyone is going to make it.

Either way, let’s keep giving Raven and Memori screen time because they deserve it!

2

“We cannot ask The Commander because there is no Commander!”

Well, that makes things complicated. Raven is looking for members of Wonkru to volunteer as tribute to help her fix the reactor and she wants people she can trust. Indra, Clarke, and Gaia clash over whether or not to involve Madi, but Gaia ultimately decides to tell everyone that there is no more Commander.

Wonkru is outraged and Indra points out, “You just lost Wonkru.” There is now an even greater divide among the people in Sanctum, which I’m sure Sheidheda will use to his advantage.

It looks like Raven will need to turn to the prisoners for help now…

1

“You’re the Queen of doing the impossible.”

That’s a great way to describe our girl, Raven and our favorite cockroach is back in action as well. Only, the moral compass is certainly wavering back and forth here. After convincing the prisoners to help with the cause, Raven fails to mention how dangerous this task really is.

Since Murphy and Emori have Nightblood, they will most likely be fine with some radiation exposure, but others won’t be so lucky. Things get beyond tense when Murphy and Emori work to bring down the pressure, but when everyone starts getting sick, Raven realizes that the radiation is leaking more than she realized.

She recognizes that the prisoners will die and Murphy tries to get her to see reason and even points out that perhaps she can get in there and fix what is wrong. Raven clings to the delegation role here; however, and the few prisoners lose their lives in order to save the many.

It would have been nice to let them know that they were sacrificing their lives though…

Raven has done the impossible again to save her people, but has she just crossed a line? We’ll have to wait and see, but I don’t think things are going to calm down at all on Sanctum.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

My performance of the week ending 5/30/20 on TV goes to…

Marie Avgeropoulos as Octavia Blake on The CW’s The 100.

Let’s talk about one of the most brilliant and incredible character transformations on a television series of all time. The quiet girl under the floor has stepped out of her big brother’s shadow, embracing love, heartache, leadership, loss, and happiness. While a lot of the attention still centers around Clarke, Octavia has quickly become the heart and soul of The 100 and season 7, episode 2 is another great example of this.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on season 7.

It’s not easy finding your way, especially when you grew up as a secret. Octavia only really knew Bellamy as her family, but she quickly became a reliable member of the group once our favorite characters made it down to earth.

After experiencing life out in the open with brand new eyes, Octavia met the love of her life, Lincoln. Their love was beautiful and transcendent of everything else around them, but Lincoln was killed in front of her, which was one of the most heartbreaking moments of the entire series for me.

Octavia turned her grief into strength and trained with Indra to become an unstoppable warrior. She was driven by revenge and eventually shattered her moral compass when she became the leader of Wonkru…Blodreina. Remember that familiar chant?

“You are Wonkru or you are the enemy of Wonkru. Choose…”

Well, it’s not much of a choice when the alternative is death, but Blodreina transformed into a ruthless leader, but there were still glimmers of humanity within her. We later discovered that Octavia took on all of the burden so that no one else had to. As much as you wanted to hate her for her actions, you couldn’t.

Bellamy has always been able to bring Octavia back, but after their huge fallout, Octavia seemed truly alone. Her friendship with Diyoza allowed her to head down a path toward redemption as she stumbled across the mysterious anomaly.

After watching season 7, episode 2, Marie Avgeropoulos had me in tears once again. Her letter to Bellamy was so heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. Octavia has finally learned what it means to love again, bonding with Diyoza and her daughter, Hope. Even though she has a new family, she still holds Bellamy close to her heart and wants him to know that she now understands.

This was such a huge moment for Octavia as a character. Through it all, she finally is able to recognize her mistakes and redeem herself to become someone others can always count on.

What’s next for Octavia? This is the final season of the series so it will be interesting to see if Octavia’s journey toward self-discovery is almost done. I’d love to see a reunion between her and Bellamy, but I also have a feeling that she may sacrifice everything to save him and her friends, which would make her an eternal hero. I’d also love to see another flashback or memory with Lincoln because it truly was the ultimate love story of the series.

Either way, I am so beyond impressed with Marie Avgeropoulos as an actress. She channels so much strength into her character and has shown us so many sides of Octavia. Some of them have been good and some of them have been on the other side of the spectrum, but everything she pours into her character is compelling and disturbingly real.

I can’t wait to see how it all ends and I will be an Octavia Blake fan for life!

May we meet again.

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The Walking Dead” Season 10 Episode 12: “Walk With Us”

Happy Sunday TV fans! After watching AMC’s The Walking Dead season 10 episode 12, we were reminded that “things don’t always work out the way you want” and sometimes what you desire most of all can lead to your downfall.

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

In tonight’s episode, “Walk With Us,” the war is here, as we get a few unexpected casualties. Meanwhile, Negan finally gives Alpha what she wants, leading to the epic ending you have been waiting for.

My top 5 moments from The Walking Dead season 10 episode 12 are:

5

“I’ll never walk with her.”

The opening of the episode is beyond intense. There are still flames everywhere as our group defends Hilltop. Lydia refuses to walk with her mother and runs off, but ends up bumping straight into Negan. She is initially relieved to see him, but it looks like he has another agenda up his sleeve. Where does Negan’s loyalty lie? We’re about to find out…

4

“Her hand just slipped out of mine.”

In the midst of all the chaos, Yumiko actually spots an injured Magna in the crowd.

Magna was able to survive the cave-in, but says that she lost track of Connie and couldn’t find her. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Connie is dead and I am remaining positive about one of my favorite characters on the show, but I was glad to see that Magna is all right.

Magna and Yumiko take a break from the war to break up, earning some screen time during the episode.

3

“Never!”

After Mary finally gets a chance to hold baby Adam, we witness a sweet moment. It’s good to see family back with family except they are being followed by a hungry horde of walkers. Mary sacrifices everything to protect her nephew and leads the walkers away, taking them out one by one.

TWD AMC 4

Only Beta is waiting for her and stabs her, waiting for her to turn so that she can walk with Alpha. Mary’s actions were so brave and I was honestly so upset to see her die after showing so much promise and potential.

After being turned, Alden shoots her with an arrow to prevent her from falling victim to such a cruel fate. Beta runs off again and even takes out one of his own followers to protect his identity.

2

“I can stay here with you.”

Judith has always been so strong and mature, but she certainly grows up a lot after this episode and my heart goes out to her. The plans goes slightly off when Ezekiel is separated from the kids, but Earl gets them to the safe house.

Judith discovers that Earl has been bitten and offers to stay with him so that he does not have to be alone. Earl tells her that he is not alone and tells her not to come out again so that he can stop himself as a threat.

It’s not that easy to stab your own brain as we find out and poor Judith is left to take out undead Earl. Daryl and the others find the kids and they are all safe, but this has clearly taken a toll on Judith and I’m pretty sure that she has gone through more things than any other kid on the planet…ever.

TWD AMC 5

Even though this was heartbreaking to watch, I finally felt like Judith got a true moment to shine, channeling Carl quite a bit here.

1

“Took you long enough.”

Negan informs Alpha that he has found the thing she is looking for, leading her off to where he has Lydia held captive. After an interesting Lion King debate, Negan actually reveals quite a bit about his own feelings after his wife died.

Alpha explains that it is Lydia’s destiny to die because she loves her. Lydia has always been Alpha’s weakness and as Lydia breaks free, we discover that she is in a different shack.

Alpha finds her own shack empty and Negan swiftly slashes her throat. He rolls her undead animated head toward Carol, revealing that these two make quite the team.

This was probably one of the best episodes I have seen on the series and I was very satisfied with this outcome. Welcome back to the team, Negan!

So, now that Alpha is dead, what does this mean for the fate of The Whisperers? Is the threat really over or will they take revenge?

Stay tuned! Next week we finally catch up with Michonne!

My performance of the week ending 3/7/20 on TV goes to…

Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison on Showtime’s Homeland season 8.

As I continue to watch the final season of Homeland, it’s important to recognize and celebrate Claire Danes for her brilliant performances week after week. She has done so much more than merely becoming Carrie Mathison…she IS Carrie Mathison and she will forever be a legend because of it.

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

Homeland is always jam-packed with quite a lot each episode and you really have to be in the right frame of mind to watch the show, but it continues to captivate my undivided attention and if I start to drift off for even a moment, Carrie Mathison brings me right back.

While Carrie has displayed a million emotions over the seasons, I really prefer the Carrie who wants to get to the truth. Her board of theories and her drive to analyze every angle is beyond inspiring. She risks it all for her country, but she also has quite a few layers and blocks in her memory that make her even more of a dynamic character.

Sometimes Carrie is unsure if she can trust herself, but we know that her intentions are typically good. Does she get carried away sometimes? Absolutely, but I think it is a constant struggle for her to balance all of her intense emotions. She uses that intensity to be a major asset at her job, but it also takes a toll on her, as the rest of her emotions spiral out of control…especially when she is off her meds.

Each episode in season 8 has been absolutely fantastic so far. In season 8, episode 4, Carrie risks it all to help a woman in trouble. She doesn’t stress about following protocol or getting approval. She simply makes a decision based on her gut, understanding that doing the right thing doesn’t always follow the rule book.

What’s next for Carrie? Well, I imagine quite a lot after that major cliffhanger at the end of episode 4. It looks like she is going to have to put her theories to work to find out what is really happening and I’m assuming we will also start piecing together her missing memories to unlock those secrets.

I’m intrigued to find out how it all ends. As much as I want a happy ending for Carrie so that she can be reunited with Franny, it’s somewhat unlikely that both she and Saul will make it out of this alive. A sacrifice will most likely be made and I’m not sure that I am prepared for it just yet, but I’m confident that Claire Danes will continue to deliver extraordinary performances for the remainder of the season.

I can’t wait to find out how it all ends!

What are some of YOUR theories?

My performance of the week ending 1/18/20 on TV goes to…

Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester on The CW’s Supernatural.

If you thought Jared was done shattering our hearts into a million pieces after winning your favorite male performance on television for two years in a row, think again!  Sam Winchester is starting 2020 off with a heart-wrenching performance that will continue to linger with you long after watching Season 15 episode 9, “The Trap.”

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

Jared Padalecki has this brilliant way of bringing the fans in with charm and compassion.  He is so effective as Sam Winchester, making you truly think that he is your best friend.  He’s someone to root for against all odds and he wears his heart on his sleeve, which is not an easy thing to do when he is constantly facing angels, demons, and God.

Sam Winchester The CW 1

While all of the performances on SPN are always fantastic, there is just something about Jared’s portrayal of Sam that truly resonates with me.  His connection with God put him in danger and yet he still tries to hold on to that last sliver of hope, refusing to believe that there could be a world where Dean would ever give up.

Sam’s loyalty and courage make him a true hero.  Even though Chuck wants to believe that there is only one end to the Winchester story, there is no breaking Sam Winchester.  His dark trip to the future was revealing enough, allowing Chuck’s plan to work, but Sam is a fighter and he’s not going to give up without reaching into the deepest depths of his soul to make a difference.

Sam Winchester The CW 2

Sam has made so many sacrifices along the way and now he has to pass on a chance at romance with Eileen, but I have a feeling that all of Sam’s good work is going to pay off in the end.  When it comes to rooting for the good guys, Sam is the epitome of everything in this world that is worth fighting for.  Perhaps he should be taking care of the world rather than Chuck, keeping us all safe from monsters while showing love and understanding to others in need.

What’s next for Sam?  Well, we are pretty much back at square one now that Chuck is free, but Sam’s actions did matter, as Dean is the one to remind him that they will find a way.  Sam is the glue that keeps the Winchester family together and while it will be bitter sweet to say goodbye, I know that Sam is destined for great things.

Thank you Jared Padalecki for continuing to inspire us with your moving performances.  You’re one of a kind!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 9: “I Hate Missing my Favorite Show”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 9, we learned that hope can be extremely powerful, but when you break that last remaining glimmer, is it truly gone forever?

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

In last night’s episode, “The Trap,” Chuck kidnaps Sam and Eileen and is determined to sever his connection with Sam once and for all.  Meanwhile, Dean and Castiel head to Purgatory to find the Leviathan Blossom, running into some threats along the way.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 9 are:

5

“All good things must come to an end.”

Sam wakes up to discover that Chuck is holding him and Eileen captive in a casino.  Chuck reminds Sam that they are still connected, which is keeping him trapped and weak.  Sam tries to stay strong, as Chuck begins to reveal his plan, hoping that Dean and Castiel can get to them before it’s too late.

4

“That’s the way we’ll save Sam and that’s the way we’ll save the world.”

Wise words indeed, Castiel.  After Eileen tries to call for help, Dean wants to rush in to save Sam, but Castiel reminds him not to be stupid.  He explains that they only have a small window to retrieve the Leviathan Blossom from Purgatory, which will save Sam and the rest of the world.

Dean will do anything to save his brother, but Castiel continues to be the voice of reason here, recognizing that sometimes sacrifice is necessary for the good of the world.

3

“This is gonna hurt her as much as it hurts you.”

As Chuck begins to reveal his plan, we learn that he used Eileen to spy on the Winchesters.  He forces Eileen to start cutting away at Sam’s wound against her will and by the end of the episode, Eileen is ready to part ways with Sam, not sure if anything is real.

However, Sam gives her a swoon-worthy kiss and tells her that it is real, but it looks like Eileen may be safer away from Sam right now until he is off Chuck’s radar.

2

“You don’t have to say it.”

After Dean and Castiel run into some threats in Purgatory and get separated, Dean takes a moment to himself to admit that he was wrong and to tell Castiel that he forgives him.  Later when they are reunited, Castiel tells him that he doesn’t have to say anything and that he heard his prayer, providing us with a heartwarming Destiel moment for sure!

1

“I will make it better.”

Chuck gives Sam the opportunity to see the future, as we get several glimpses from Sam’s perspective.  In this future world, all of their friends are dead or gone except for Jody and other Bobby, but this future is dark and hopeless, as even Dean begins to give up.

The watch Sam holds stops on December 9th 2022, as Chuck explains that this is the end of the line.  Sam watches in horror as he and Dean are turned into vampires and killed by their friend, but he tells Chuck that there has to be another way to make it better.

Chuck reminds Sam that without him, the monsters will devour the world and take over, giving Sam something to really think about.  When Dean and Castiel show up to save the day, Sam cannot go through with smashing the Leviathan Blossom, recognizing that he has to protect the world.

Chuck is ultimately set free by breaking Sam’s hope, so now we have that to worry about that.  Later on, Dean reminds him that they will not give up and they will find another way, as we are left with a huge cliffhanger at the end, flashing to Jack and Billie in The Empty.

Is Jack somehow the loophole to stop Chuck’s plan for good?  Can Sam and Dean re-write Chuck’s story or are they destined to repeat the memories of other Sams and Deans from alternate realities?

I’m confident that the Winchester brothers will be able to write their own stories, as we inch closer and closer to the end of our beloved series, but will it end the way we expect?

Stay tuned SPN family!

My performance of the week ending 11/16/19 on TV goes to…

Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester on The CW’s Supernatural. 

Usually, Sam is the one who brings me to tears, but I have to say that I was beyond impressed with Jensen Ackles’s performance in season 15 episode 5.  It really made me think about how far Dean has come as a character, as I started to come to terms with the fact that we are nearing the end of his journey.

For me, Dean has always been the charming one to bring us some much needed comic relief to break up some of the angst and tension we often see throughout the seasons.  Dean has certainly had some truly epic and emotional moments as well, but there was something so real and moving about his conversation with Ashley in season 15 episode 5.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.

During Dean’s talk with Ashley, he takes a moment to self reflect, especially after Ashley wonders if they might be better off with a set route for their lives.  We have previously seen Dean struggle with this, wondering if they are all just Chuck’s puppets, but in this moment, he actually finally realizes that his life is so much more than that.

Dean talks about how much he loves his job and says that he enjoys helping people and that’s the point.  It’s about all the small moments and it’s not supposed to be easy.  It may not be possible for Dean to save everyone, but every action counts and he recognizes that here.

Even though we later find out that Ashley is actually Lilith, it still doesn’t erase the honest and reflective moment here for Dean.  I’ve been watching his character grow for 15 seasons and this was the first time I truly stopped to both smile and cry at his words.  Maybe it’s because I know we are approaching the end or maybe it is because I was so proud of Dean for finally realizing that his actions do matter.

What’s next for Dean?  We’ll have to wait and see, but it looks like he is ready to find some impossible way to stop Chuck/God.  I can’t ignore Sam’s dreams or visions and I’m wondering if one brother will truly have to take down the other?  This isn’t the first time we have seen a plot like this on SPN, but since we are in the last season, all bets are off.

I don’t want us to lose Dean, but he is no stranger to sacrifice and he would do anything to protect Sam.

Either way, I’m excited to see some more adventures for the Winchester brothers and I’m hoping that there is some way for Dean to make it out of this OK.  I sort of just want him to be able to take on the open road at the end of the series, riding off into the sunset, but nothing is ever that easy on SPN.

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 3: “The Rupture”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 3, I realized that sacrifice is never easy, but sometimes it is necessary.  Would you let the world die so that someone else could live or would you be able to make the impossible choice that Sam Winchester is left with?  Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “The Rupture,” the team works together to retrieve Lilith’s horn to summon the souls back to hell, but not everything goes according to plan.  Meanwhile, a sacrifice is made that reminds us that we are coming to the end, but what does it mean for the fate of our remaining characters?  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 3 are:

5

“Go team!”

In the beginning of the episode, Rowena tries another ritual to cast the souls back to hell, but it doesn’t work.  Rowena says that they are all going to die and that no magic can stop it.  Dean insists that they try and come up with another plan and it seems like Belphegor has an idea with potential.

Belphegor explains that Lilith had a horn to summon all of the souls at once as a measure of last resort, but that it is probably locked away somewhere in hell.  At this point, no one else has another suggestion, so it’s time for the team to get to work.

4

“Not at any price…”

Ketch is still recovering in the hospital, but he is anxious to return to his friends.  We know that Ketch was hired to track down Belphegor by a demon named Ardat and she certainly makes her presence known now.  Ardat threatens Ketch and demands that he give up his friends, but Ketch has this moment of redemption. 

The old Ketch would have given them up to save himself,  but he remains loyal and true.  Ardat rips out Ketch’s heart and leaves him there to die, but we know that not everyone is going to make it on the last season of SPN.  Either way, I’m glad that he did the right thing in the end.  RIP Ketch.

3

“You’re an abomination…”

Castiel is forced to join Belphegor in hell to track down Lilith’s horn, but he is not exactly pleased about it.  Belphegor claims he wants to be friends, but Castiel cannot bear to look at him wearing Jack’s body like a suit.  Castiel tells Belphegor that he is an abomination, but proves to be quite useful when it comes to opening up the box to retrieve the horn.  Nice singing, Cass!

Ardat attempts to break up the party, but is eliminated.  However, she warns Castiel that Belphegor is trying to claim the throne of hell for himself.  Belphegor’s true motives are revealed, explaining that he wants to absorb all the souls so that he can become a god.  After all, there is a vacancy for that position.

Castiel is able to stop him in time, but Belphegor clearly does some damage when he pretends to be Jack one last time.  Castiel recognizes the lie and destroys Belphegor, but it broke his heart to do so.  Will Castiel be able to recover from this or is he too far gone now?  I can’t bear to see him apart from the Winchesters, but he may need to find his sense of worth on his own.  We need you Cass!

“It has to be you.”

SPN is not holding anything back for the final season, as Rowena suddenly realizes that “death is an infinite vessel.”  She explains to Sam that she can absorb all the souls and bring them back to hell, but her death will seal the spell.  Sam tells her that there has to be another way, but that pesky prophecy comes back up, as Rowena reminds him that he will need to be the one to kill her.

Sam and Rowena have grown very fond of one another and this moment was beyond heartbreaking, as Sam kills Rowena to save them all.  Rowena absorbs the souls and says goodbye to her boys before she enters into the rift, which had me crying my eyes out.

Rowena has been one of my absolute favorite characters, but I thought that she also found redemption here.  The witch who used to look out for her own interests truly discovered her purpose and this moment with Sam reminded her that she did have a family in the end.

Farewell Rowena.  I will miss you so much!

“I don’t think there’s anything left to say…”

After this incredibly heartbreaking moment, Sam and Dean return to the bunker.  Sam is dealing with his grief and Dean reminds him that they did it.  Dean and Castiel have an argument and Castiel feels like Dean is still blaming him for Mary’s death.  There has been a distance between these two for quite a while, but Castiel decides that it’s time for him to move on now. 

Where will Castiel go?  Is there a way for him and Dean to resolve their differences?  I hope so because I can’t bear to see him separated from Sam and Dean.  Castiel reminds Dean that he has Sam, but I have always looked at them all as a family and I can’t bear to see them apart.  Let’s hope this gets resolved!  Stay tuned SPN family!

My Ship of the week ending 7/13/19 on TV goes to…

Kane and Abby on The 100, better known as Kabby!  Kabby is such an underrated ship on The 100 and it doesn’t get as much attention as Bellarke or Clexa, but there is something to be truly said about it.  The love between Kabby is powerful and healing.  Both Kane and Abby have lost their way so many times and yet they find something so special with one another.

**Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not watched season 6 episode 9 yet.  The journey for these two characters is truly remarkable, as they have both made so many mistakes, but yet they continue to fight to make things right.  Even though Kane may have the most to make up for from his time on The Ark, he has now essentially become the moral compass of the show. 

In seasons 5 and 6, Abby has been broken, but Kane has never given up on her, which explains why Abby refuses to let him go in season 6.  However, I love that Kane doesn’t turn a blind eye either.  He does intervene and he tries to get Abby to see reason during her addiction in season 5 because he truly cares and wants what is best for her.  In season 6 episode 9, Kane wakes up in his new body and has trouble adjusting and accepting this.  Abby begs him to make the most of it, recognizing the potential for a second chance here, but Kane knows this is not right and he decides to bring everything full circle.

In one of the most heartbreaking moments I have witnessed yet on the show, Kane (as Henry Ian Cusick) says goodbye to Abby through the glass and tells her that he has always loved her.  He essentially floats himself, hoping his sacrifice will make a difference here and he brings everything full circle by doing this.  Abby has turned to drugs in the past, but will Kane’s sacrifice finally get through to her?  We have heard the phrase, “May We Meet Again,” so many times on the show, but it truly made an impact with me in this moment.

Henry Ian Cusick has confirmed that he is leaving the show, but I can’t really think of this as the end of Kabby.  Their love is so inspiring and I’m hoping that Abby will carry her love for Kane with her always, which will keep his values alive.  Kane has always wanted to make amends and do the right thing and he will never be forgotten.

Kabby’s love is transcendent of time and it’s difficult thinking about the show without it.  I almost feel like I lost a part of myself along with Kane, but I have a feeling that a spark has just ignited in Abby and she’s about to make Kane proud.  Thank you Henry Ian Cusick for so many amazing years on the show and thank you for bringing Kabby into our lives!  May we meet again.  Stay tuned!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Best,

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 7: “I Just Want To Live”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 7, I learned that “giving up isn’t better” and that sometimes all we need is a little push.  So do we take the easy way out or do we risk it all?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “Nevermind,” Clarke is trapped within her shared mind space with Josephine and unlocks different memories from her past that lead her to the truth.  Meanwhile, we also learn more about Josephine’s past, as Clarke and her face off.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 7 are:

5

“How is this possible?”

In the beginning of the episode, Clarke is present in her mind space and comes face to face with drawings of her past, including some of Wells and Lexa.  Clexa fans everywhere held their breath when she touched the drawing of Lexa sweetly.  Too bad she wasn’t actually there!  Clarke eventually stumbles upon her father, who acts as a sort of guide to get her through this.  She asks him how this is possible while realizing that she must have died, but comes to the conclusion that she is actually still alive.  Clarke’s father inspires her to go and figure everything out and it was sweet to see him return in this episode, as he reminds his daughter not to give up just yet.

“I’d keep this memory safe…”

Clarke’s father is not the only one to make a special guest appearance in Clarke’s mind space, as we also get to see A.L.I.E again, otherwise known as “the bitch in the red dress,” according to Murphy.  Clarke realizes that this is some kind of dream or hallucination, recognizing that she destroyed her, but A.L.I.E reminds her that she exists because of her and helps her find a memory that Clarke needs to keep safe.  We flash to Clarke using the EMP on Raven to extract the chip, reminding us that everything that has happened to Clarke has prepared her for this battle now.  Clarke’s memories are the key, but will she be able to find a way to wake up before it’s too late?

3

“I don’t go down easy.”

Clarke also gets to meet the real Josephine face to face, as Josephine tells her that this body isn’t big enough for the both of them.  Josephine may be intimidating, but Clarke is not going out without a fight.  We know that this shared mind space can only hold both of these identities temporarily, as Josephine explains what happens when they share a mind space for too long, which could result in a stroke or brain hemorrhage, killing them both.  Both Josephine and Clarke want to survive and it doesn’t look like Josephine will stop looking for Clarke’s hidden memory.  However, this also leads them both to re-visiting some traumatic memories as well that take a toll on them.

“Why are you so torn up?”

After crossing paths with Octavia and Maya, Clarke’s guilt begins to overwhelm her.  Josephine points out that perhaps she has killed more people than she has actually saved, but recognizes that she did what she had to do.  Clarke tries to hide the memory about Raven, but Josephine tracks it down at the spot where Finn died.  This is one of Clarke’s most painful memories and Josephine also brings up Lexa, but Clarke warns her to be quiet, showing her vulnerability when it comes to her lost love.  Clarke wants to be there for Madi and her friends, but Josephine starts to get through to her, realizing that she may need to sacrifice herself to save them once again.  But is she truly ready to say goodbye to her life forever?

1

“Giving up isn’t better!”

It seems like Clarke is ready to say goodbye to her life, but Monty shows up to remind her about who she is and how she can truly do better.  I thought it was fitting to see Monty here because he always represented the hope and goodness of everyone.  Monty teams up with Clarke and they sneak past the door to Josephine’s own memories and unlock some of her painful ones as well.  It looks like Josephine has a lot of issues to work through too, but some of her memories were quite disturbing and she is clearly not over them just yet.  Clarke uses this to her advantage and ends up sending Morse code out to Bellamy using Christmas lights and Bellamy spells out:  ALIVE. 

I’m so glad that Bellamy was the one to see this because he has always had Clarke’s back and he now knows that they need to find a way to save her before it’s too late.  This is why I am such a huge Bellarke fan!  I have to say that this was one of my favorite episodes of the series and the show did a fantastic job of bringing back some of our favorite characters while continuing the story-line forward, which worked beautifully.  Clarke’s past is always there, but it looks like she is discovering that sometimes you need to use the past to drive forward to the future.  I think it’s about time we get our girl Clarke back for good!  Stay tuned!
