There are honestly sooooo many scenarios about Lexa’s death in my mind it sickens me…reading coypus amount of fan fiction doesn’t help this predicament. The thing that I am most worried about is Lexa’s death being used to show us ‘The Conclave’– the test for Commander ascension.
Jason Rothenberg:“We are really going to dive deeply into the grounder world, and the clans, and the mysticism and spirituality of the grounder world, and how commanders are created. It is going to be crazy, that’s one of the things I like most in terms of world building. That character (Lexa) lets us do that, in a big way.”
This is a transcript from the Comic-Con panel when JRoth announced that Alycia was coming back to the show. (let me take a moment and say a few ‘Hallelujahs’). Now what I am hoping is that they will show the grounder world THROUGH Lexa. Meaning that we will get her narration and POV of the world. Hopefully this is through showing Clarke around Polis, and regaling her tales about how SHE was selected to be the Commander. I hope this is complemented with some A N Y A flashbacks and some little gangly beansprout Lexa moments. Now what gets me REALLY nervous is what exactly does “a big way” entail.
I’m with you there in that Clarke will probably not be the person that kills Lexa, i think the writers would find that writing another ‘mercy kill/kills person that loves her’ story would be unoriginal. Whatever they have planned I hope she [like Paul on OB] goes out L I K E A B O S S! —how she deserves. Okay, but like not before we get some epic fight scenes from Lexa. [Can we get some scenes like Papurrcat has been drawing–have you seen what she is working on now with the horses?! i need this to happen.]
However, on the bright-side, I think Lexa’s character and Alycia, herself, are just too good for the writers to write off the show. LIKE EVERYONE LOVES ALYCIA! If AMC and Alycia’s schedule allows it, I could see her lasting till a fourth season (DEAR LORD LET THERE BE A FOURTH SEASON!!!). However, as soon as Lexa appears on screen E V E R Y S E C O N D I will be fearing for her safety.
