So let’s say Wells is alive in canon and fits right in with the core four during both seasons. Now, 2x16. Clarke leaves, and she’s walking through the forest, totally numb and distraught and lost. Then footsteps come up behind her and she whips around, furious, because it better not be Bellamy, because she thought he understood–
Instead, she finds Wells, two bags slung over his shoulder, glaring at her.
When she growls at him, demanding what he’s doing there, he just snorts and chucks a bag at her.
He says: First, don’t be dumb enough to go off on your own without supplies. Second: I’m here because I got myself arrested and sent down to the ground so I could follow you, remember?
For a minute, she can’t speak, and so he does instead.
And I’m still following you. Don’t you know by now, Clarke? I’d follow you anywhere.
You better not slow me down, is all she can manage to choke out, because her heart is in her throat.
As if, he scoffs, stepping up to walk by her side, in the forest, into the unknown.
