Happy Wednesday TV fans! After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 13 season finale, I learned that sometimes accepting the truth isn’t always possible. If we have been brought up on a lie, do our lives still have meaning when the lie is finally exposed or is there still a chance to discover the truth within ourselves? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.
In last night’s episode, “The Blood of Sanctum,” Clarke continues to pose as Josephine, but things get a little tricky when she realizes that many innocent lives are at stake. Meanwhile, Murphy tries out being a hero, Abby’s fate is revealed, and Octavia’s destiny becomes more complicated. My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 13 season finale are:
“Who’s the hero now?”
You are, John Murphy! Especially after you had that “interesting” kiss with that guy from Sanctum! Murphy was really committing to the role, but he did say he was a good kisser. Good thing Emori isn’t the jealous type. Either way, I was thrilled to finally see Murphy do the right thing to help his friends.
After the truth is revealed about the Primes, non-believers are being killed, but Murphy decides to get his friends out of there and brings them to the palace to move them out of harm’s way. Murphy still contemplates just doing what is right for him and his friends, but risks it all and continues with this dangerous charade to help everyone in need. Thanks Murphy!
“I am sorry for your loss.”
Meanwhile, Clarke realizes that she cannot let Russell and the other Primes kill any more innocent people and she decides to turn the tables on them, revealing her true identity. Russell is beyond upset to find out that his daughter is dead and he turns further down his path of revenge. We get a small glimmer of hope when Simone turns the gun on her people, telling Clarke that she is really Abby and that she has been pretending too.
Clarke holds on to this hope for just a second, but is smart enough to ask Abby what her father’s name is. Simone’s plan fails and Clarke pulls the fail-safe switch, ultimately floating and killing Simone in Abby’s body. I was already so incredibly heartbroken from last week’s episode, but I was still holding on to the hope that Abby might somehow be OK. However, that hope was ripped away from us in the season finale, as we said goodbye to Abby Griffin for good. May we meet again. You will be missed!
“You’re as weak as her…”
After Clarke goes through the trauma of losing her mother, she cannot bear to lose Madi too. However, the Dark Commander is not making things easy, as he continues to control Madi, manipulating Russell into following him toward an even darker path of revenge. The Dark Commander tells Clarke that Lexa told him that she was strong, but he thinks that she is weak because of her love. Clarke holds a gun to her head, trying to get through to Madi and is successful, as Madi is able to surface with perfect timing.
Raven comes in the clutch and reminds Clarke that they need to take out the flame to save Madi. Clarke is beyond grateful and the two bond for a moment over losing Abby, which was touching to see. Madi may not be the Commander anymore, but she is alive and we can all breathe a sigh of relief…at least for the moment.
“Tell me it was worth it.”
Despite all the heartbreak in this episode, we do get a beautiful Bellarke moment, as Bellamy and Clarke embrace after everything is over. Clarke asks him if they truly did better and Bellamy tries to convince her that they are making a step in the right direction, but how will Clarke cope without her mother? Now that we know that The 100’s season 7 will be the last season of the show, is there hope for Bellarke to finally be together? Fingers crossed! Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed this small moment and pretty much any embrace between Bellarke makes me swoon!
“Side by side…like it was meant to be.”
Even though a lot of the attention is centered on Clarke in this episode, Octavia continues to try and redeem herself, making her an even more interesting character. Octavia never ceases to surprise me and she is the first one to tell Gabriel that she is willing to help save the innocent people of Sanctum, truly embracing the role of a hero. Octavia continues to make courageous decisions now and it looks like her destiny is about to be explored even further when Gabriel discovers that the Anomaly Stone has formed tattoos on her back. Gabriel has been studying these for quite some time and believes that Octavia is the key...but the key to what?
When Octavia touches the stone, the intense green light is released and our favorite characters are greeted by….Diyoza’s grown-up daughter, Hope, who stabs Octavia, causing her to vanish before their very eyes. Bellamy screams out for his sister and our favorite characters are left out in the open. We can only assume that this is either the Anomaly itself or it has somehow taken over Sanctum.
We know there are other planets that still exist based on what Russell said, but I’m not sure where are characters are now, but it looks like we have our setup for season 7. Will Octavia be OK? Is Clarke stuck in the same Anomaly? We’ll have to wait and see, but I can’t wait to see how it all ends! Stay tuned!
