Oh man, yes. I couldn't have put it better myself. I'm really excited about S3!Bellamy's downward spiral because I know he'll come out the other side and be stronger for it. As was Stefan. And obviously... Stelena/Bellarke parallels. It's really late where I live and my brain doesn't work well lol but there /are/ parallels between them, right?
Me too! I’m sure he’ll end up with even more hate than usual once his storyline really gets going but I love the grey. It’s the best thing about The 100 because everyone has done something awful but it’s how they respond to it afterwards that makes all the difference.
I agree that he’ll come out of it so much stronger. Definitely adds to the complexity, too.
The most obvious parallel between Bellarke and Stelena for me has to be the foundation of both relationships: mutual respect, trust, understanding, acceptance, etc. Bellarke also has that “you know me better than anyone” thing going on, which I love. A big difference between them, though, is that Clarke is more logical whereas Bellamy is more emotional, and Stefan/Elena both are emotional. BUT it works for Bellarke and it’s what their angst stems from.
Ugh. They both kill me, honestly.
