The thing is, there is NO way they didn't debate in the writers' room for ages about having C tell L she loves her during the death scene. It went on FOREVER. They had about 10 opportunities to put it in & they didn't. Throwing it in as a consolation prize to a dead woman is kind of messed up, tbh. Feels more like Clarke clearing her conscience than coming to any kind of realization. If Bellarke get an ILY when they know there'll be consequences the next day, that'll be huge and a first for both

Yes! I’m curious to see how the show will make the ILY between Bellamy and Clarke different from her past ILYs. Bellamy hasn’t said ILY to ANYONE, not even Octavia (I think. Anyone know if I’m wrong about that?). I think it’s significant that Bellamy hasn’t said those words to anyone yet. Tumblr will blow up when he does say it :-) 

I think Clarke’s loves (Finn, Le.xa, and Bellamy) are meant to reflect a young girls changing view of love that happens as she matures. In Finn, she had her girlhood, puppy-love crush (you know, the boy/girl you thought was so cool and attractive and squealed over, especially when he/she pulled your hair while you were walking in a line to the cafeteria). Bellamy (you already know why) will be the closest definition to true love (the kind that promises commitment, like-mindedness, and unconditional love until death) this world can offer Clarke, but typically, this kind of love goes unappreciated until you have a love like Cl.exa.

L.exa was the first real love. The kind that surprises you, excites you, and consumes you (burns brightly, but also burns quickly until there is nothing left. You lose yourself to this type of love). The kind in which awful things are done to each other, for each other, and with each other. Also, the one that as you grow older, you reflect fondly back on once in a awhile because “damn, they made you feel so f*cking alive.” But, they were also the ones that never truly understood who you were at your core. Yes, there was a love connection, a dark connection that I would define as love, but a love that feels incomplete … and, at times, wrong, while still containing a bit of right. That is the love Clarke shared with L.exa; overall, I think. L.exa could never have nor would ever have been able to understand Clarke’s fundamental core, the core that is noble/honest and more closely tied to Bellamy. 

Therefore, I think the show will make Bellamy different from her past loves, and one way to break the Clarke cycle of heart break, is to have them (like you said) say ILY knowing that the consequences of saying that will have to be dealt with every single day after for the entirety of their lives. It’ll make this love story different, and the writers are showing us different loves stories. I’m excited to see how they develop this relationship further. It’s going to be epic!
