yall i did say that i am going to talk about the clarke/monty confrontation that takes place in the middle of the ep at some point, but can we take a moment and appreciate their first scene together? the way monty observes clarke and registeres that something else is going on with her besides her worrying over the hunting party (especially bellamy) going radio silent (look how my monty signals to her that he knows something is up by tipping his arm against hers)
the way clarke goes “mmmphf”, because she is not the best at expressing herself, but she also really wants to get this feeling off her chest
so she takes a deep breath
and tells him how she feels
and like. she is so conflicted about her presence in one place and absence in another, feeling pretty hopeless about the situation overall and completey out of place (she just wants to save everyone yall), so you see her distress written all over her face. but monty feels confident that the others will get the job done - even when she voices her worry that they have to get it done before the radiation arrives - and comforts her; basically tells her that they need her here.
and long story short: look at her cute, small smile at the end of the scene.
super short lived moment between them, but i really love their friendship ok ok? this moment stood out to me. thank you very much.
