The 100 and the “Oh, come on!Again with Greatest Leader of All?!”
Ok, I’ve got to say this. At first I was “Oh no!Again with using Lxa to help Clarke being a leader”! I mean, I get that Lxa was important for Clarke’s development and they’re forcing the audience to not forget her (believe me when I say that it’s impossible since her name has been pronounced more time than the one of the protagonists!!!) but enough is enough. Lxa wasn’t such a good leader (and she’s dead because of one of her own!), she wasn’t perfect and she could never be the right leader for Skypeople, who have a different culture, not war linked.
But then the final scene (the one when Clarke injected herself) made me of think something else. They use Lxa’s name only to help Clarke being ruthless (just like Lxa did in her all life!) but then Clarke - in an episode full of remindings of Mount Weather - chose to follow a different leader, someone who sacrified himself for his people (like her father or the president of Mount Weather) - I bear it, so they don’t have to - and she chose to follow her friends (the horrified looks on everybody’s face was distressing) and HER instinct.
I think this is the first time since second season and her meeting with Lxa, that Clarke thinks with her brain. She let go of Roan’s words and she chose to be HER kind of leader. She’s choosing WHO she wants to be. She’s regaining self confidence. Even when Roan was talking to her, I didn’t see her so stroke by his words, she was doubtful, puzzled not entirely believing the King’s words (I’m not a King).
I feel that in this season they’re slowly beginning to built her character and her leadership making her free herself from everybody’s influence, especially the shadow of Lxa. And particularly, they’re freeing her from her “God’s Complex” (and there goes the title of the episode).
Ps. The scene in the Woods between Bellamy and Jasper was so beautiful. I love it! The best scene of the episode, no doubt about it.
