Where and when did it show that oct still loves her bro?
DO YOU HAVE A SIBLING? Have you never been in a serious fight with them? Have you ever spent a year not talking to them even though you live in the same house? Have you never been angry enough at them that you lash out and say horrible, true things because you know exactly what hurts them the most? WELCOME TO FREAKING LIFE. It’s ugly. And so is love. Sorry to burst your fairy godmother bubble, Cinderella.
There is already precedence for the Blake sibling relationship to come back from a seemingly permanent break in season 1. When Octavia told him that he killed their mother. And when Bellamy told her his life ended when she was born. And they separated and might never have seen each other again. Yet they did, and they came back together and said how much they loved each other. This is how they interact. Season 4 is worse. The fight is worse. The cause is worse. The situation is worse. The doom is worse. Their individual mental states are worse. And Octavia is on her own personal journey that is precisely about breaking away from Bellamy and it needs to happen.
And yet, every time Bellamy is in danger from outside sources (not her own lashing out) Octavia is there to defend him and get in the way. Maybe she’s framing it as her rage and impatience, but it keeps happening when she sees her brother in danger.
You: Octavia is mean and a bitch and hurt Bob and I hate her and it’s proof that she hates her brother because she is the literal Devil TM even though this show works in shades of gray not black and white extremes of good and evil I don’t care because I don’t like her so she is The Devil.
Me: Octavia is mean and a bitch and hurt Bob and I never liked her but she still loves her brother despite her broken mental state and dangerous tendencies to lash out violently at people when she’s hurting, but that same love makes him the target for her easy rage because he’s always been there and that’s actually a pretty true psychological reaction even though it sucks, because she’s not evil she’s fucked up and damaged and I hope she manages to fix her broken head and own up to what she has done and grow and become better.
You: NO! Octavia BAD! Bellamy GOOD! HOW DARE YOU NOT MISINTERPRET THE SHOW TO FIT MY BIAS!!
