wow was “watch the throne” a piece of sloppy writing or what?
even if we factor in the grief and manipulation it makes absolutely NO SENSE that bellamy would be suspicious of trikru to the point that he would be willing to murder their army? he’s not like pike and farm station, he has allied with grounders and he knows that the ice clan and trikru are two entirely different entities. it makes sense that bell doesn’t like grounders (besides lincoln) due to his experiences but that’s a far cry from attacking lexa’s army.
of course, it would have been preferable for bellamy to be saved from this deconstructive and disappointing character arc entirely BUT at least have it make sense.
this easily could have been solved by some sort of scuffle or something between trikru in earlier season 3 episodes to show those tensions are still there. at the very least, couldn’t pike have brought up lexa abandoning them at mount weather to remind him how untrustworthy the commander is?
lazy. sloppy. writing.
bellamy blake doesn’t deserve this.
