when i first saw that scene where clarke pushed her off i was so confused now that im seeing it on my dash gotta admit still am :/ why was she so angry with lexa in that moment? it makes no sense to me. emerson jumped her but she pushes lexa off for trying to help her idek man lexa was so respectful that was so unnecessary of clarke but w/e
someone cortect me if I’m wrong bcos i really can’t remember well, but like, wasn’t Emerson the one who offered the deal to Lexa that if she took her army away, they would return the grounders in the mountain?
her and lexa were making progress, but seeing him again dredged up everything that happened at the mountain again. it makes sense she’d still feel upset at lexa, especially in the moment.
in 3x06 they both demonstrate a lot of frustration with one another, but in the end we see that they do have a high level of respect and admiration for each other and their mutual goals/desires… Clarke doesn’t execute Emerson, because she realizes that it goes against her own goals for peace and because she realizes it would be hypocritical after the events of 3x05, when Lexa let go of vengeance for the sake of maintaining peace, demonstrating respect for lexa’s actions through her own, and lexa’s belief in Clarke is validated, and she praises Clarke’s self restraint when she speaks before exiling Emerson
