The group is back together, united by the common goal of saving Raven (and therefore humanity). However, ALIE’s access to — and exploitation of — their loved ones’ memories risks tearing them apart.
- Dawson: This episode returned back to a lot of things I really loved about the show. I liked a lot of it. I do wish they had done more show and less tell, but this structure is a tell structure. I did enjoy the episode, though think it would have served the season better to spread this out over previous episodes. Trying to cram it all into one “everyone hates everyone” episode is less effective.
- Kris: I actually ended up really liking this episode. I wasn’t too sure about it at first, but we spend the entire episode with the core group of The 100. I can’t even think of the last time that happened. There was a lot of “airing of grievances,” which is hard to watch, but I think it’ll ultimately be a good thing.
- Mr. “You don't give the orders, Clarke!” needed Clarke to give him orders literally 2 minutes before he said that.
- “Man pain” and what we mean by it
- “I couldn’t do what you did” is an interesting concession to Clarke’s leadership. It was good to see everyone getting back to that
- Somewhat ironically had to play the cool head in regards to Raven/ALIE’s provocations
- Playing second fiddle to Clarke and how that messes with Bellamy
- Still doesn’t seem to feel any remorse for what he did? Holds a gun on Niylah, isn’t exactly redeeming himself but seems like he’s supposed to be on a redemption arc?
- Got beaten up by his mom
- Saved his mom from getting wounded/killed by Octavia
- Had to kill his mom to save Octavia
- Had a whole arc of belonging in one episode
- “We survive, together.”
- Took Kris a second viewing to realize that she needed new clothes because the old ones were covered in Hannah’s blood
Sinclair & Raven
- We knew Sinclair was protective of Raven, but it’s always nice to see
- Interesting to see how Sinclair interacts with The 100 kids (he’s technically the highest ranking person there, but he’s willing to follow their lead)
- “It’s not ALIE, Clarke. It’s Raven.” This line was really interesting, because it seems true.
- Poor Clarke, getting lots of blame this episode
- Watching Clarke be thrust back into the desperate leader role is both satisfying and painful
Things We Liked
- Focused almost entirely on the core group.
- Lindsey Morgan is amazing (again), plus her work with Eric Cerra was spectacular. The scenes with both of them were A+++.
- Niylah is back! (And saying stuff that reminds us of why we love this show.)
- They saved Raven.
- Our core group of delinquents is back together!
- “Never thought I'd be so happy to see someone in pain.”
Things We DIDN’T Like
- Monty killed his mom — it felt kind of inevitable, but did it NEED to be?
- Torture porn flashbacks. Ew.
- Everybody being mean/cruel to Clarke
