This is probably one of my favourite responses to the question: “Do you have any opinions/experiences relating to eating disorders that you think are “unpopular” OR are not part of mainstream discourse (regardless of whether the discourse is online, within academia, or in treatment/clinical spaces)? If so, what are they?” from the SEDs survey #2.
The italics/bolding is my own doing. Colours, too, obviously.
I’ll post all of the responses to that question sometime later today.
Why are you so sure that Lexa's not going to die? I ask because I need reassurance! Between the Vanity Fair interview with JR that was published today (where he says that the Arkers actually WOULD have been in trouble in a few episodes if the army were still there), and the fact that ADC's a regular in another series, I'm legit terrified that they'll off my favorite character.
You’ve come to the right place, my friend! I’m firmly in camp Lexa absolutely will not die. First of all, Alycia being a regular on another series is a non-issue. She is a regular, yes, but the series is also a short one and she’s not the lead star in it (or at least, it’s an ensemble cast), so she is able to work around filming a lot better. AMC was very flexible with her this season, even allowing her to fly up mid-production to film The 100′s finale in Vancouver. The simple fact of the matter is that if scheduling were a problem, then she wouldn’t be so heavily involved in this season, and I highly doubt that AMC will say, “You can only have her for this season.” Why? Well Fear The Walking Dead was not some raving, massive hit. Reviews were lukewarm, where the reception for The 100 and Lexa is off the charts. I’m not a professional or anything, but it seems logical that they would want to let Alycia get the buzz on The 100 and draw more potential fans of hers as viewers for their show. Or maybe AMC is just chill like that. Either way, don’t let that worry you. We know (from an interview with JRoth as well) that she has done about as many eps as last season. She’s essentially a series regular on The 100 now, but without the credit.
As for the character? I just haven’t seen any compelling arguments (or hints from the story itself) that Lexa’s death would somehow be more interesting to watch than her continued presence on the show. If ever there were a chance to have Lexa “go out in a blaze of glory” if that’s what they wanted, this episode would’ve been it. Instead, the episode seemed to drive home the point that Lexa is more than capable of defending herself, and as an added bonus, Clarke has her back. The two of them are a force to be reckoned with, and their priorities (and feelings) have pretty much aligned now. I do think that issues with the Arkers are probably going to split them apart for a while, but it’s all added to this excellent tension they’re building. No other ship on the show has been given the treatment they have, with this absolutely wonderful slow-burning sexual and romantic tension that’s threatening to eat us alive. Clarke is a main character and this season Lexa has absolutely been elevated to a level basically on par with her. There’s a lot of backstory still to explore for her, and her arc is far from finished. So many excellent sub-stories can be told with her, and she also just plays this absolutely crucial role in the Grounder government. With how completely electric ADC is on screen… how stupid would they have to be - especially after begging AMC to let her be on The 100 - to kill her off? No. They have gold on their hands, and they’re taking the time and care to establish not just Clexa as this central relationship, but also Lexa as a main, dynamic, fully fleshed-out character. I’m not worried at all, anon. Not in the least.
