I’m kind of tired of the way The 100 keeps painting the Grounders in this “ignorant native” light.
Like, we know that Ilian will blame all of Skaikru for what happened in the CoL and it’s just so illogical.
Why is it that every time an indigenous people is introduced we HAVE to have the story line where they blame the more technically advanced (typically led by white people) group, and all that technically advanced group wants to do is SAVE them from some terrible fate they’re too ignorant to understand.
4.1 afterthoughts (popular and unpopular opinions so let’s remember this is fictional)
-BELLAMY BLAKE BEING RECOGNIZED AS A LEADER
-I like Echo. A lot. I like Tasya’s acting better than any of the other guest stars of the show. I think she’ll provide an interesting foil to Bellamy and allow for some growth and character development and I’m ready for it (also if they hate kissed I would not complain fight me irl) (yes I still think she’s a horrible person and I am aware of this let me live)
-Clarke grieving was good, but what was better was her finally thanking not only my boy Bellamy, but RAVEN
-Raven’s scene when the gang leaves her alone to work and she just exhales the pain. A++ acting Lindsey Morgan
-Jasper’s scenes made me sad
-I literally like O.ctavia even less this season. And that slow mo spear made me wish I was the one getting speared.
-camera angles were funky.
-All hail King Roan of Azgeddaloadofthisbeautifulman amirite
-BELLAMY BLAKE GETTING THE SCREENTIME BOB MORLEY AND WE DESERVE AFTER THE MESS THAT WAS S3
-I still don’t really enjoy Clarke all that much…even if I’d kill for bellarke to be canon ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ also I think they’re definitely setting up for romantic bellarke (like they have been for three seasons)
-WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT KENZA IN THE CROWD?!?!?
overall, it was good but I wasn’t on the edge of my seat or entirely invested in the story. I’m excited for this storyline though and hope it picks up in pacing which I think will happen when the team finally regroups and Clarke finally returns to Arkadia and WE LEFT POLIS BE CONSUMED BY RADIOACTIVE BADLY ANIMATED PURPLE FOG
