Why am I posting a picture in a bathing suit while in a dressing room? Because I legit felt completely comfortable and cute which I can’t say is something I’ve felt before. I am super proud of myself and how far I’ve come with self acceptance and my weight loss 👍🏼
Also sorry this is not an amazing picture but lol who cares
Season 4 cannot be saved, but it can be salvaged. 4x10 is
exactly what we need, for ALL of the remaining episodes.
I’m excited again, for the first time – honestly – since the
DRAMATIC ROMANCE STARE in 4x05 (yes, I loved the stuff in 4x06 but I was
feeling too twitchy about the show in general to get the full buzz). That’s not
to say that the problems with this season get wiped away. There were issues
that lingered here, and those issues will remain. But enough good work was done
in this episode to make me willing to look past the problems, if the final
steps of this season follow suit.
I’m not re-watching (blessedly, because I don’t have time
and not because I don’t care) so please excuse this messy summary of my full
The greatest thing about this episode is the
salvation of Octavia. And here is the first example of us having to look past
prior issues to accept what we got here. Some of us won’t be able to do that,
for good or bad. But I can, and WOW this episode was killer. Firstly, the
writers didn’t try and pass Octavia off as a badass warrior that could hold her
own. Everybody knew she didn’t have a chance to win. Everybody (including
Clarke, yo yo). Octavia knew. She was trying to act brave, but you could still
see her fear.
The person that believed in her? The person that
gave her a way to survive? BELLAMY. And he did it referencing her upbringing
and HOW POWERFUL WAS THAT. The Octavia of old meshed with the Octavia of new.
Bellamy’s Octavia meshed with Lincoln’s Octavia. Bellamy not being able to tell
her he loved her, Octavia saying may we meet again. IT WAS ALL SO TAUT AND
HESITANT. There was so much left unsaid because so much has gone down.
And then not only is Octavia reminded of her
brother’s love for her, but Kane hugs her. And then Indra!!!! Despite Indra
having her own man in the fight, Indra presents Octavia with her sword – once rejected
by the daughter of her blood, now accepted by her adopted daughter. I WAS
CRYING DUDES. CRYING. And the cracks start to form…
Octavia’s relationship with Illian has been…odd,
to say the least. His death made me sad because Chai is great, and Marie killed
it, but I’m not particularly put out to see him go (he’s a guest star who’s
characters purpose was entirely tied to a main – he was given a full bodied arc
and the cast needed to be trimmed) but Illian saving her took those cracks that
had formed and forced them wider. It’s obvious that Illian was a Lincoln substitute
in a lot of ways to Octavia. Her grief was very much for this boy that had –
for whatever reasons – decided to fall for a murder kitten, but it was also
wrapped up in Lincoln and it felt so earned that she got to give Illian a good
death (all of the Lincoln mentions and references were ON POINT)
And then we get Bellamy stepping out to save
Octavia, and GUYS. BELLAMY HAD BITE AGAIN IN THIS EPISODE. ACTUAL BITE? CAN YOU
First, he stands up to Kane and Kane relents
THEN HE FINALLY GETS TO ACTUALLY BE FURIOUS WITH
(One of the small flaws with this episode is a
perfect example of how this season does not track.
What was the point in Echo’s epiphany earlier in the season, if she was just
going to shoot O now? SHE DIDN’T EVEN HESITATE! The plot should serve character, and not the other way round dammit!)
Bellamy was gonna kill her, and honestly – he earned
Still, I felt for Echo when she got banished. I
certainly get the sense that she was almost…crafted by Nia, and I can buy that
it’s hard for her to let go of those instincts. I can’t very well defend Clarke’s
choices to save her people, and then shit on Echo for trying to save hers,
right? I’m intrigued as to where she goes from here. Logic points to some sort
of death protecting a Blake, OR maybe she gets a full arc in S5. We’ll see…
Then we get the GORGEOUS Blake scene with Roan.
It was just…so wonderfully acted, and so perfectly on point for all the
characters. Roan and Bellamy have always antagonised each other, but there’s a
healthy respect between them at this point. And then of course there’s Octavia’s
face when she hears Bellamy speak. I’m wary of making connections this season,
due to the lack of consistency from ep to ep, but it took me back to 4x06 and
my thoughts after Octavia rejecting him utterly. I said then that I felt her
rejection had as much to do with her hating and blaming herself, as it did with
her hating and blaming him. And I felt that again here. It’s like…despite
everything, Octavia didn’t believe that Bellamy could still love her or have
faith in her after everything that had happened. But he does, and he always
Roan is another character that has suffered this
season (honestly, the large majority have) as a tool to the plot. We aren’t
completely free of this at the start of the episode, and I’m still frustrated
by it. This is a guy that knew Ontari was a fake Commander and was prepared to
roll with it, and he’s only now getting all shitty about religion and culture?
Hmmm. I suspect the writers felt the scene with Clarke was necessary to show
her trying one last time to save everyone, but they could have handled it
better. Maybe just show her trying to reach him, but Gaia intervenes or
something? HOWEVER, I’m willing to look past this scene because everything else
with Roan was wonderful.
As with Bellamy, Roan has a shit ton of respect
for Octavia. That’s evident from the start, and it has a profound impact on
Octavia when he offers the truce. This is a girl that has felt incredibly alone
since Lincoln died, but now – as she faces death – people are queuing up to
love and support her. Yes, we as viewers know those people have been there all
along. But Octavia? Grief, trauma, pain distorts your view. She hasn’t been
able to see through that.
ROAN GETS TO BE A BADASS EVEN IN DEATH (although
I maintain that until Zach tweets his goodbyes HE’S ALIVE DAMMIT). Him melon
crushing Trikru man was wicked good. His fight with Luna was gloriously done.
The twist of the black rain coming in, removing Octavia from the equation, was
a great way to have him lose. But YIKES LUNA, what a way to murder someone. It
just looked GREAT.
QUICK NOTE: Gaia’s reaction to Trikru losing
out, and her hugging Indra ALSO MADE ME WEEP.
If (IF DAMMIT) this is Roan’s end, then at least
it’s a good one. They could have gotten more out of him this season, but I’ve
enjoyed him since 3x02 and Zach was a great addition to the show.
So, let’s talk about Luna. I felt her turn to
darkness was abrupt, and that one scene in an episode prior would have made it
track better. But I also kinda loved this as her ultimate endgame? This was
Luna at her most interesting, honestly. So yeah, if we’d gotten one extra scene
hinting at this it would have been perfect. Nadia rocks a bad girl, like whoa.
And again, kudos to the writers for doing the right thing. There is no way that
Octavia would beat Luna in a fight. Having her fight dirty was the best and
MAJOR YIKES AT OCTAVIA’S LAST WORDS TO LUNA
THOUGH. WAY HARSH.
So then we get to Octavia returning to the
throne room, and whooooooooooooa.
SO last week we all breathed a sigh of relief
that Clarke was NOT going to become Commander, but now it very much looks like
Octavia is going to become some sort of leader of a ‘one’ kru. I’ll reserve
judgement on that until I see how it forms, but one thing I do want to mention
is the respect that an abundance of grounder characters have for Octavia.
Wanheda has been feared and revered, but has always been apart. Octavia has
embraced grounder culture since day one. When Clarke tried to take the flame,
she disregarded grounder beliefs. Octavia wouldn’t do that. THAT is why when
Octavia suggests sharing the bunker they all accept it. Octavia took on the conclave, won, and
they respect that.
KANE WAS SO PROUD
INDRA WAS SO PROUD
I WEPT SOME MORE
And then I wept a bit harder when she ASKED FOR
My one gripe with this scene and the setup is
that Clarke’s choice happened off screen, and was used as a twist. BUT I am
putting major faith in 4x11 to delve deep into her choice and her headspace so
it’s not a major thing YET.
- Also, NOTE BELLAMY’S BITE.
I’m gonna close by doing something that I
generally avoid doing, because I hate raising expectations…but…my friends…my
immediate Bellarke reaction after this episode and ESPECIALLY AFTER SEEING THE
NEXT EPS PROMO WAS EXCITEMENT.
That bunker will be open by the end of the
episode, and I can’t imagine that anything other than Bellamy getting through
to Clarke will be the reason it does.
Could there still be angst right up until the
end of the season? Sure! But not necessarily.
So my fun times scenario is below the cut, and you can play
with it if you’re unable to see any light at the end of the tunnel (DISCLAIMER: YOU SHOULD ALWAYS PREPARE FOR THE WORST,
THIS IS NOT ME PROMISING THAT THIS WILL HAPPEN).
Did something different today… obviously. Since I already had a Sim named Daffodil (MY PRIDE AND JOY AMBER DAFFODIL), I did a mini photoshoot with her, and then made some ~real edits~ with the images. I’m pretty proud of how they turned out… There are three or four more, but don’t expect them all today.
Doggo snoot teacuplets, snoot sugar jars and an incense holder. All based on my dog’s nose (I made a deathmask when he passed away), done with trying out slip casting for the first time :D I am legit proud!
