Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 9: “Redemption”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 9, I learned that “the path to the future goes through the past,” but once you face it, are you able to truly earn a second chance?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “What You Take With You,” the trippy weirdness continues, as Octavia takes a spiritual journey to discover the truth about herself.  Meanwhile, Josephine/Clarke and Bellamy try to find Gabriel and Kane is conflicted about his own second chance.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 9 are:

“You don’t want them to know the truth…”

Abby is beyond thrilled to have Marcus back in her life, but he is having a little bit of trouble adjusting to his new body and the actions that led to his return, which is to be expected.  Abby tries to tell Marcus that this is a gift and begs him to accept it, reminding him that he is the man she fell in love with and that this doesn’t change that.  Even though Marcus initially seems like he is trying to adjust, he recognizes that the Primes are lying to their people, as his host’s wife thinks that he is still living.  Marcus tries to keep his moral compass intact, but this is not an easy call, as he also wants to be with Abby.

“I won’t let you die.”

Meanwhile, Josephine/Clarke and Bellamy continue on their own journey together, as Bellamy tries to track down Gabriel.  Josephine asks Bellamy if they are going to be friends now, but it doesn’t look like Bellamy is falling for her act.  However, we do discover that Clarke can hear them and Bellamy takes a moment to tell Clarke that he won’t let her die, which was a swoon-worthy Bellarke moment for sure.  Josephine hilariously comments on how weird their relationship is, but their friendship has been through so much and I love every single moment we witness with them.

“Why can I see you?”

After the Children of Gabriel learn that Josephine is present within Clarke’s body, it’s off with her head…or almost, as Josephine reluctantly turns control over to Clarke so that she can escape.  Clarke shows off her kick-ass fighting skills and clearly has not forgotten her time as Wanheda!  Survival is important to Josephine, but Clarke begins to see Josephine right in front of her, reminding us that they are running out of time.  Clarke radios over a message to Gabriel and tells him who she is and that she has Josephine within her mind, hoping to find a way out of this, but it looks like Clarke and Josephine are both in danger here.

“This is how we get our humanity back.”

Kane’s uncertainty continues and he wakes up some backup to help him figure this all out…Indra!  It’s great to see Indra again, but she is shocked upon seeing Kane’s new body, but he quickly confirms that it is really him.  Raven is on board to help as well, as Kane realizes what he must do.  Abby is horrified to find out that Marcus plans on ending his life for good and speaks to him between the glass, desperately trying to get him to change his mind.  Marcus loves Abby so much, but he understands what he needs to do now, ultimately floating himself, but not before we see him in his true form one last time.

Henry Ian Cusick has confirmed that he is leaving the show, but perhaps we will see him again in a flashback or a memory.  “May we meet again.”  He will absolutely be missed and I am still incredibly heartbroken over this, as I ship Abby and Marcus together so much!  Kane’s fight may be over, but his memory will live on and I’m hoping his actions are enough to inspire Abby, so that she can find her own inner strength to stop the Primes before it’s too late.

“The anomaly gave me a second chance and now I need to earn it.”

The most interesting part of the episode for me involved Octavia and her spiritual journey into her past and the anomaly.  Gabriel induces a kind of sleep or trance to find out what she saw in the anomaly, but Octavia seems to go on more of a journey of self discovery.  We get to see Pike again, who sort of acts as Octavia’s guide on this journey, helping her tap into her past and her guilt.  Pike asks Octavia what she truly wants and she first says, “Forgiveness,” but then comes to the realization that she is actually looking for redemption.

In a heartbreaking moment, we witness Octavia seeing Lincoln right before he dies, which still brings me to tears even now.  Octavia faces off against the darkest part of herself, as Blodreina reminds her that “you are Wonkru or you are the enemy of Wonkru.”  I never get tired of hearing that.  After battling herself, Blodreina is no more, but Octavia Blake remains.  Octavia is a fighter and she is about to prove herself to earn back her second chance.

Can she truly be redeemed?  I’m not sure, but this is definitely a step in the right direction for her and it looks like things are going to get even more interesting when Josephine/Clarke shows up.  The anomaly has shown Octavia the way, but we still don’t know where Diyoza is and Gabriel still seems to be infatuated with discovering the truth within it, so we definitely have a lot more to find out.  Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 3: “Have you ever known peace?”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 3, I realized that many of us want that second chance…an opportunity to start over.  But this is not always possible when it comes to a jaded past.  Can one really be redeemed or will past sins consume you until there is nothing left?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Children of Gabriel,” Clarke and the others meet the leader of Sanctum, Russell Lightbourne, but is he a friend or foe?  Meanwhile, Madi, Diyoza, and Gaia face a threat on the ship and Octavia is ready for action.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 3 are:

“I’m pretty sure I’m going to hell.”

In the beginning of the episode, Murphy’s life is in great danger, as Abby cannot figure out what is happening to him.  The leader of Sanctum, Russell Lightbourne, approaches and reveals that he can save Murphy life…only “he’s already dead,” but apparently this is not the end.  Murphy was exposed to something toxic in the seaweed and Lightbourne uses the venom from a live snake to suck out the poison.  Luckily Murphy is all right, but this near death experience has definitely rattled him.

Murphy explains that he thought he saw something and he states that he’s pretty sure he is going to hell.  So what exactly did Murphy see and will this be explored further?  We know that Murphy died on this mysterious moon for a few moments, so is it possible that he came back wrong?  We’ll have to wait and see, but I am absolutely concerned about Murphy.

“You need to work on your game, kid…”

This is the first time that Jordan has really interacted with anyone other than his parents, Monty and Harper, but he doesn’t waste any time, as he immediately connects with a girl on Sanctum named Delilah.  Jordan thinks that she looks like a princess and he even gets to experience his first kiss, but his innocence and naivete get in the way, as Jordan reveals a little bit too much to Delilah about Clarke’s past.  Maybe Murphy should have a talk with him after all…

“My sister died a long time ago.”

Meanwhile, we learn that there is another group residing on Sanctum named the Children of Gabriel and they are very dangerous according to the Primes.  They use some kind of paralytic darts on Madi, Diyoza, and Gaia on the ship and keep yelling out “Death to Primes!”  It’s clear that there is some kind of feud going on here, but who are the good guys?  It may be a while until we find out, but this is a threat that should not be taken lightly. 

Bellamy, Echo, and Octavia watch from afar, but Octavia refuses to listen to reason and decides to just start attacking…you know, because that’s what Blodreina does best.  Later on, Bellamy decides to leave Octavia behind and tells her that his sister died a long time ago.  At the end of the episode, the Children of Gabriel capture Octavia and plan to take her with them.  Does this mean that Octavia has just found a new group of people to lead or is she in serious danger here?

“I will not apologize for saving the people that I love.”

Russell Lightbourne seems to connect most with Clarke and she takes on the leadership role once again.  Clarke surprises everyone when she emerges in a gorgeous dress, revealing that perhaps she has the potential to be a princess as well.  Clarke is nervous about her dinner with Russell and his wife, as she recognizes that he holds the key to their survival.  Abby tells her to just be herself, but Clarke has a very dangerous past.

As Clarke sits down for dinner, Russell’s wife asks her, “How many people have you killed?” and further asks if they should really call her, “Wanheda?”  Clarke learns that Jordan spilled the beans and she just asks for a second chance.  Russell believes that she wants to change, but he doesn’t think this is possible and tells her that they need to leave.  It looks like Russell has been burned before and perhaps we will explore this more later in the season.

“You changed your mind…”

After Clarke helps save Delilah from being captured by the Children of Gabriel, Russell agrees to let her stay, but only after he sees Clarke’s nightblood.  It’s clear that having nightblood is very important to the Primes, but is Clarke now in danger as a result?  Clarke is afraid of them finding out about Madi, as she will do anything to protect her daughter.  Everyone can stay for now…except Diyoza, whose reputation precedes her.  How do the Primes know so much about Diyoza?  It seems like we have a lot to explore here, but I’m interested to find out more and let’s hope that our girl, Clarke isn’t in great danger. Stay tuned!
