What are your thoughts on the title of episode 6 "Bitter Harvest" and "Clarke is torn between vengeance and mercy." I love your theories btw!
Episode 5 is when I think Clarke and Lexa are going to come upon the massacre of Trikru villagers that were killed by Azgeda warriors. (there is a possibility that it was the Skaikru, but I’m pretty sure it was the Azgeda). As we know, Emerson is working with the Ice Nation. He may have been caught by the Trikru, and taken to Polis. Clarke will find out the reason why the Ice Nation was able to blow up Mount Weather was because of Emerson. Due to it being an attack on HER people, Clarke can decide if she will be merciful and spare Emerson OR she can kill him. However, remember Clarke saying “Revenge isn’t justice” and Lexa’s line “You think killing the shooter will make you feel better, but it won’t”. I think that Clarke is going to spare Emerson’s life. But, he will be banished or locked up. (The actor who plays Emerson is listed on IMDb for episode 6)
Now, the actor is also listed in episode 12. I think that maybe there is an attack on Polis – killing the Nightbloods?? – and Clarke will feel guilty for sparing Emerson. Maybe he was somehow part of the attack. He is then chained in the middle of Lexa’s throne room and will then be killed.
Clarke looks like she is wearing different clothing? and her wound looks a little bit more healed? then the scene where Titus is comforting her. But her hair has the same style, so these two scene happen in the same ‘general’ time frame.
I have theorized that Clarke (being held by Titus) is either looking at Aden in his conclave (either dead or in pain), or she is looking at the bodies of the dead Nightbloods. Maybe Titus tells her “a warrior does not morn those she as lost until after the battle is one” – if they are the massacred nightbloods. (There is a possibility that Clarke is looking at Lexa’s body, that has gone into the City of Light, and Lexa might be experiencing pain and that is why Clarke is crying.)
Aden’s last episode seems to be episode 9. Now, he could fail his conclave and die in episode 9 (the scene of Titus comforting Clarke might NOT be in episode 9), but then the other Nightbloods are killed by the Ice Nation in a later episode (that is the scene of Titus comforting Clarke). This is when Emerson is tied up in the same room that the massacre took place. Kinda going back to how Finn’s body was taken to TonDC where the massacre took place.
As for the episode name “Bitter Harvest”…it could be talking about how the Mountain Men ‘harvested’ the Grounders and Sky People and now they have captured (harvested) the last Mountain Men. However, it is ‘bitter’ because it was after/ due to the attack on the Trikru Villagers. [gifs]
