Episode three wasn’t the best episode of TV I’ve ever watched, but it was pretty awesome nonetheless. My favourite parts were, obviously, Clarke and Bellamy, followed by PLOT TWIST Kane and Abby. I don’t know, the stuff at Polis was good. My least favourite parts were FUCKING LEXA BEING AN ABSOLUTE KNOBHEAD.
I am just so upset for him. He’s now lost his girlfriend
of two minutes, thanks to the Grounders and their arsehole ways. And not only that, but Clarke still isn’t ready to return to Arkadia and to her people. And to him. Tears all around. I was a bit weirded out by how gullible Bellamy was this episode, because normally he is on point. I guess he just wanted to be able to trust someone and that bloody Ice Nation Grounder BROKE HIS TRUST.
Also, Bob’s acting is so on point. Always. He manages to convey Bellamy’s complex feelings in the span of a second, with his voice, body language, and facial expressions. Amazing.
Best moment: Bellamy’s final scene with Clarke, where Bellamy has just lost his girlfriend and everyone is going back to camp, and then the music starts when Bellamy looks at Clarke and he glares and looks disappointed and he reminds Clarke that the Arsehole Grounder Queen (a legit term) left him and everyone else to DIE in the MOUNTAIN.
I don’t want to, but I’m questionning Clarke’s choices. I have a feeling that Clarke is going to one-up Lexa and get her own back. Play her at her own game and all that. And I get that Clarke isn’t ready to face her people after what she thinks she’s done (I totally back her up on her 2×16 antics, idec) but part of being a good leader is being there for your people and standing by what you’ve done. Lexa has that shit down, which I suppose isn’t hard considering how many crappy choices she makes.
I did NOT appreciate Clarke BOWING before Lexa. I wanted to kick Lexa behind the knees and make her bow to Clarke instead. NO CLARKE, NO. But she’s trying to be diplomatic, so fair play. You do you, Clarke Griffin.
Best moment: The same Bellarke scene that I mentioned above. Clarke’s so precious.
This QUEEEEEN. I adore her. Not only is she walking around with chronic pain and a dodgy leg, but she tried to chase after the assassin and save everyone in the mountain. Raven saw there were only seconds left on that countdown timer, and yet she wanted to go back in there anyway. Sure, not the smartest choice, but Raven Reyes is a hero. It’s a shame her friendship with Gina has come to an end, because I totally could have started shipping them if Gina had chemistry with anyone. Which she didn’t.
I just wanted to talk about Indra for a second because she’s getting some character development in the background here. She started off hating the Skaikru and everything they did, but now she’s buddies with Kane and she looked genuinely upset when she heard about Mount Weather blowing up. I can’t wait to see more of her as the season progresses.
I actually have stuff to say about Abby. How shocked are we?! So she’s struggling with the Chancellor position, and it seems to me that she thinks Kane would do a better job. I’m wondering if they’re going to parallel Clarke and Bellamy here, with Kane being the voice and inspiration for the people (like Bellamy), and Abby being the one to handle the politics and the diplomatic side of things, like Clarke. That would be cool. I still haven’t forgiven Abby and Kane for any of the shit they’ve pulled, but they’re slowly growing on me. As much as they are able to, anyway.
I don’t even know what to say about her without going into a full blown rant, but I HATE HER SO MUCH. She left them to DIE, she deserves no sympathy. And if you’re thinking of justifying her season two actions, I really don’t want to hear it. I get that she did it for her people. It was the only way she thought she could get out. But she was willing (and ALLOWED) dozens of her people to get blown up at TonDC. That’s not good leadership, that’s trying and failing to stay on top. Not only that, but Bellamy, Clarke, Raven, and Octavia are my bb’s, and if you betray them then you betray me. I will not boy down to this evil witch. *and breathe*
- I KNEWWWWWW Shady Eyes was lying to Bellamy. KNEW IT. I said as soon as she came in, and especially when she was sat inside Mount Weather, “she has got shady eyes, she’s LYING”. None of the characters ever listen to me.
- I am wondering who killed the Skaikru men in the car. Random Ice Nation people under orders, or people more directly involved with the Ice Queen?
- The assassin creeped me the hell out. Nah.
- Raven Reyes <3
- I understand why people are annoyed about Gina, but I really couldn’t care less. You can call me a bad feminist if you like, but I have never seen any problem with killing off random side characters whether they’re male or female, and that’s what Gina was to me. Oh well.
- If Bellarke don’t make up soon then I am going to weep.
- At the same time, I’m loving this angst. All the angst, please.
