I JUST FINISHED LAST EPISODE OF THE 100 AND OMFG
OKAY IVE HEARD MANY PEOPLE SAY THIS IS THEIR LEAST FAVOURITE OF THE SEASON BUT I THINK THIS IS MY FAVORITE EPISODE YET.
Okay starting this little rant off by giving a HUGE shoutout to the soundtrack. The violins in the background were so perfect and fit into every scene and just amazed me with the simple dark mood they set, and the silence that came after. The last song that played in the episode was fucking perfect to end on. The tone was kind of eerie and dark and twisted, but the upbeat gave it almost a sick sense to it. It played into Octavia throwing her blades away and allying with Illian, it played into Bellamy’s scene with Kane, it played into Clarke consoling her mother for the possible murder they might commit, and it played into Emori’s plot twist. SUCH A PERFECT SCORE FOR THE EPISODE. BEST OF THE SEASON IF NOT THE SERIES. (I seriously have never appreciated a score this much)
OKAY now onto the actual plot:
- Clarke finding the comfort in the mansion, and taking five seconds to calm down and bathe and sit was perfect. We never see clarke do anything liek this, and was pivotal to see how much everybody in this show has missed out on. ((This episode was about showing us the reality of the characters lives, how much they had and didn’t have))
-Bellamy is such a hero type, but you could see him crack this episode. He tried his absolute hardest and his true colours shined through this episode. We saw his inner nature to try and save everybody, and we saw how his roots go back to Octavia. From the age of five/six he was forced the responsibility of another human life. He’s always had that burden on him, and we saw how it effects him to his present character. ((This episode was about giving a clear picture of Bellamys character and who he is.))
-Octavia is shaping up to me. I haven’t loved her this season, but she’s warming up to me after this episode. Her scenes with Illian were fantastic. He saw the pain in her and saved her. He gave her what she needed, and I believe she’s starting to heal now. She went from almost killing him in this episode, to saving him but shunning him, to him saving her, to her throwing her blades away and seeking allyship in him. ((This episode was about starting Octavia’s healing process))
-Harper’s storyline was short by sweet. We saw her commit a mistake, something against her morals, and somebody else paid the price. It absolutely crushed her. But that’s reality. Sometimes who you want to be doesn’t always win. ((This episode was about the fight between who we want to be and who we are))
-Abby’s storyline was also short and sweet. We see her conflicted about doing the bone marrow transplant. She has to decide whether she will kill somebody for the chance of survival, or keep her humanity and let them all die. ((This episode was about the fight between humanity and survival))
-Kane was doing pep talks left and right today. With Bellamy, Harper, and Abby. He really is giving his all to help the people around him. He wants to make sure everybody keeps true to themselves and heals correctly. ((This episode was about showing Kane’s fight for everybody’s souls))
-EMORI OMFG okay emori is a strange character, but this episode was pivotal. There’s no doubt after this episode in my theory that emori is gonna die this season. Her trust issues began the day she was born. This was definitely showcased in this episode. She doesn’t trust the sky people at all, and so she sacrifices an innocent man (possibly) to save herself from a threat that we don’t even know would go through. Her survival skills are immoral, and I can see now that she is not innocent. She didn’t trust the sky people enough to know they wouldn’t sacrifice her. She didn’t even trust Murphy enough to know that he would never let them do anything to her (which I think will come up in a later episode). Her character is on a downhill spiral. Her character development is conflicting with everybody else’s development this season, while everyone else is fixing their characters and healing and trying to help save the world, Emori is becoming less and less trustworthy and wants to leave everything and everyone. So this is the main reason I think she’s going to die this season. ((This episode was about showing the true nature to emori’s character))
While the storylines and the score was amazing, I loved the acting. Bob Morley continues to dominate in the acting department this season, he is a phenomenal actor and his scene in the rover was heart stopping. Marie’s acting was fucking fantastic. The fight between Octavia and Illian was fantastic, and she portrayed Octavia amazingly. Truly amazing. Henry’s acting for Kane was perfect. Richard’s acting for Murphy was once again spectacular (I personally think Richard and Bob are the best actors on the show). Eliza showed Clarke’s compassionate nature perfectly, and i gotta give a shoutout to Lindsey. She wasn’t in the episode yet she still ruled.
Okay this episode had fantastic storylines, great developments, top-notch acting, and an amazing score. This is officially ranked my favourite episode of the season. It could possibly be my favourite in the series…
