Okay so i couldn’t wait to write this, don’t blame me, I’m going to get into why Octavia is acting the way she is and hopefully answer some questions about why it had to go this way. So sit back because it’s going to be a long post. Hopefully I normally say that then my mind goes blank.
Season 1 Octavia Blake: In the first season we see Octavia. She’s just a normal sixteen year old, She’s the first Skaikru person to step on earth, later in season one we see her adventures/ rebellious / reckless side to her, in episode one when she jumps in the lake without making sure it’s safe. she time and time again puts herself in harms way, at the end of season 1 one, we see her step up from just the girl under the floor to her taking charge of her life and swinging a sword around and that was the start of her becoming a warrior a fighter, i really liked her character from the beginning, she was interesting, she lived under the floor and i kept wondering were her story would go, i also liked how Octavia and Lincoln became a couple, that was her first real love, and it was interesting to watch unfold. so season 1 Octavia will be one of my favorite developments, the way she went from a scared girl to a fierce fighter was just so cool.
Season 2 Octavia Blake? or Octavia Kom Trikru?: in season two, we see Octavia fighting to become Indra’s second in command, she wanted it so bad. she was tried of people thinking she was weak or that all she was is the girl under the floor. she wanted to step up be respected be seen as something more then Bellamy Blakes little sister. and that’s what she did, she fought. she won she became Indra’s second, then we see her become trikru, she never liked skaikru, they locked her up for being born. we see her battle against the mount men, against Bellamy who still thinks shes the little girl hidden in the floor that he must protect, i really think that season 2 was the stepping stone to her becoming who she is now in season 4, if she didn’t become Indra’s second would she be the character she is now? i don’t think so, it was great seeing her step up and defend herself.
Season 3 Octavia Blake? or Octavia of the sky people?: in season 3 we see Octavia this time she is not Indra’s second, she is just Octavia of the sky people, i thought that she was brave to go back to arkadia and help them even after they locked her up for being born, we see her wanting to leave because she feels like a outcast she doesn’t fit in, what makes she stay? her friends and the fact that pike hated grounders and wanted to kill them when she herself is in love with a grounder and was/is a grounder, we see a bit of a drift between Lincoln and Octavia as he gets more and more involved with arkadia. we see her beat up her brother because he was on the wrong side, that was what hurt her, her own brother her protector, betrayed her. she took out her anger and her sadness because of Lincolns death. this was the real turning point as to why she acts the way she does, all her hurt and anger go into her fighting, now she is numb she only thinks of revenge and how Lincoln her home was taken from her, unfairly. unjustly. what really makes her who she is now in season 4 is when she kills pike, when she kills the man who took everything from her, that’s when we first see the first of skyripper, after all she been through she takes all her pain from when she had to hide under the floor, all her pain and guilt because she might blame herself for her mothers death, all her pain and anger and sadness make her skyripper, a death bringer, a assassin, a killer.
Season 4 Octavia Blake or Skyripper?: This is the season, the season where we see a new Octavia, someone who is void and numb of pain and emotion, she has become what she fights, she has become like her enemies. she is hurting and looking for herself outside of Lincoln who is gone and outside of Bellamy who was her only friend/brother/protector that was all she knew, we forget that she never socialized outside of Bellamy, and i like how this season although it’s sad that they are fighting, that we get to see Octavia and Bellamy grow outside of each other, we see Octavia try to give up, she wants it too end she just wants all the pain she feels to end, we see her try to be normal but she can’t fight who she thinks she is, she thinks all she can do is fight, all she thinks she can do is use a sword all she thinks she can do is cut, is kill, because maybe that’s how she feels close to Lincoln who was a warrior a fighter, maybe this is her way to be close to him, but she is wrong she can be more then a warrior she can be the girl who wanted adventure again, and i am hoping to see Octavia Blake the one that isn’t hurting the one that will forgive her brother again, but we all know the 100 isn’t for happy endings, so where will Octavia take us next will she become more then skyripper or will she become less? will she become who we all know she is? or not?
I hope this answers some questions as to why she is like this? why does she think this is her only option has she given up on hope?
this is my thoughts on how she came to be, i am really excited to see where her character will take us, where will she go in season 5 or will she make it that far? honestly she is my favorite character, i always liked her and i don’t care what people say that she isn’t a good character, because she is, she shows us that a person can change a lot after someone close to them dies, she shows us that we must keep fighting, she shows us that revenge can change a person. she shows us that going down one path can sometimes be a bad idea and we must look at all the paths in sight first before making a choice.
Wow okay so maybe i typed a lot, but i have a lot of thoughts and maybe i’ll even make a second post on her later on, but add on or correct me if i’m wrong, not meant to be offensive, sorry if i offend anyone, thank you for reading, i’m going to tag some people i guess, @bellamyblakesgun @parapluiepliant @iamkstewteam @mrsbellamy-blake @bobmorlee @prettiest-warrior @as-inevitable-as-morning @octaviablakxe
