Following in Fangirlish tradition we’re starting a roundtable for The 100 where we discuss the crazy, game changing, and cringe worthy moments of the week. We’re starting it all off by exploring ‘Wanheda Part Two.’ This episode gave us the Bellarke reunion we were craving for, more Ark survivors, and Jaha being crazy as usual.
Let’s do this!
Bellamy set out to find Clarke and he did! What are your thoughts on the Bellarke reunion and swift separation? How long until he finds her again?
It left me wanting more! (Damn you Roan and your abs of steel for separating these two so swiftly and mercilessly.) For months I’ve been missing the connection clearly growing between Clarke and Bellamy. As soon as they set eyes on each other that bond flared into life! They’re companions who understand and need each other during these trying times. Together they’ll survive the wave of Ice Nation warriors coming. So why do the writers insist on separating them? Because they want to make us work for it until we’re on the edge of our seats and frothing at the mouth! Bellamy and Clarke will be reunited only during the most desperate moment when all seems lost. It’s going to be long ride.
The funny thing about this is that the scene was so short, and yet it gave me so many feels. One of the reasons I ship Bellarke is because Bob Morley and Eliza Taylor sell it. It’s more than chemistry, though these two have that aplenty, it’s how they portray the subtleties in Bellamy and Clarke’s relationship. Romantic? Not yet, I don’t think, but I do think they’re laying the groundwork for Bellamy and Clarke to end up together. If they’re not, then someone needs to tell the actors, stat.
But, because this is The 100, and nothing can ever be easy, of course they were separated again. This time, though, I don’t foresee it lasting that long. Now Clarke knows he’s looking for her. Now Bellamy knows Clarke wouldn’t mind being found. *sniff* I just hope next time, we get a longer reunion. And at least a hug. That’s all I’m asking.
One of my favorite things about Bellamy is his strength and willingness to do whatever is necessary to save those he cares about, even if he’s endangering himself. Clarke and him had a very sweet – albeit brief – reunion and I have no doubt Bellamy will track her whereabouts once again, sooner rather than later!
Pike and the Farm Station had a vastly different experience when they arrived on Earth. What do you think happened to them after the loss of their children that led to them hiding behind the mask of Grounders?
Pike and the Farm Station lost themselves to the pain they felt upon arriving on Earth. Instead of remembering their loved ones and pushing forward like the people of Arkadia they internalized the horror around them to survive. They became the monsters (what they perceived the Grounders to be) that terrorized them. When they join Arkadia this twisted version of themselves will poison the other survivors to think the same way they do. They will spread their pain because they have no other way to mourn the loss of their children.
Is it cheating if I just say: very, very bad things? Because, boy, it seems like no one in this show can catch a break. And I think when bad things happen, you can react in two completely different ways: You can either fight back against it, and say, no, I am who I am and this adversity is not going to change me, it’s not going to make me worse, you can choose to give in, adapt. Survive. And that’s what Pike and the Farm Station did.
It’s been mentioned throughout the series that the Ice Nation are among the tougher of adversaries and are vastly more savage, so it’s surprise Pike had to adapt to a more confrontational environment. Peace was a foreign concept for them and the truce will not be as easy for them to accept after the events that have occurred.
Clarke was absolutely livid when she found out that Lexa was behind her capture. Would you have reacted the same way that Clarke did when she faced the Commander?
Is ‘hell yeah’ an acceptable answer? No matter what Lexa’s intentions were she hurt Clarke. She made it so our hero lost the innocence still resonating inside of her until she believed happiness was something she didn’t deserve. Because of that she was plagued by her guilt for months, alone in the forest, without love or family in her life. So when faced with the person who changed her so irrevocably why would she forgive them? It’s going to be red hot anger from here on out when she looks at Lexa.
I literally don’t know of any other way she could have reacted. Oh, hi, Lexa! Nice to see you! You screwed me over not so long ago, but now I’m fine and good. I’m so in love with you that I’m over it. LET ME KISS YOU? Eh, no. Clarke had a right to be mad, Clarke should have been mad, and I’m glad Clarke was mad. I would have probably reacted the exact same way.
Absolutely. Lexa betrayed Clarke and left Clarke the difficult choice of ending innocent lives in order to free her people. Had Lexa not made that arrangement with the mountain men, maybe Clarke wouldn’t have to bear that burden and could have had a much happier outcome. It will be interesting to see their dynamic from here on out.
Roan is the Prince of the Ice Nation. Why would he capture Clarke on his quest to kill Lexa?
It’s all part of the grand plan. He hates Lexa enough to trek through the forest and find the infamous Wanheda the Commander of Death under the guise of submission. This isn’t about his banishment (which makes no sense because he’s a Prince. Shouldn’t he in the Ice Nation?) or his mother (who I can’t wait to see in all her glory.) It’s about something personal that hasn’t been revealed to us yet as it’s the second episode. Number #1 theory that drives hundreds of stories across time? Love. Maybe Lexa took away something that didn’t belong to her or that she understood the value of.
Because he thinks (knows) that Lexa cares? Because Clarke is a badass that everyone wants on their side? To me, it’s all part of a very complicated chess game these people are playing. It’s the second episode of the season, it’s all set-up, and though I’m pretty sure all my predictions on where this is going are going to be wrong, I’m still really, really excited to see what’s going to transpire.
Apparently Roan was banished from his home so maybe he’s looking to use Clarke as leverage. I feel like there’s more to Roan’s story and he clearly doesn’t feel the need to savagely take lives, otherwise he would have already killed Clarke and Bellamy. I’m intrigued.
Ricky Whittle (Lincoln) was just cast as the lead of Starz’s “American Gods.” Unless they have convenient filming schedules, bad things are coming for our favorite Grounder. What do you think is coming for Lincoln and will he be departing from the show soon?
My heart’s desire is for Ricky to do both shows. Other celebrities manage it all the time so why can’t he? Plus The 100 has already finished filming, freeing up his time to work on American Gods. The darkest parts of me think otherwise. Something has to separate the Blakes so irrevocably that Octavia beats the hell out of him. So why can’t it be Lincoln’s death and Bellamy’s unfortunate involvement in it? *runs away and hides*
Oh, Lincoln. I love you. Don’t ever leave me.
Look, when I heard the news, I was both excited (I adore American Gods and and he is perfect for the role), and very, very concerned for Lincoln. However, American Gods is set to start filming at the beginning of April. That could, conceivably, mean that Ricky Whittle could have time to do both, depending on how well American Gods does and how many more seasons The 100 gets. So, for now, I’m trying to keep hope alive. Mostly because I refuse to accept they could kill Lincoln. Even if his death could impact so many storylines, especially Octavia. But no. I refuse. It’s NOT happening.
Before we jump to any conclusions, it’s possible Lincoln will survive throughout season 3. Many actors take on multiple roles at the same time and make it work – Dylan O’Brien for example – so I wouldn’t rule out Lincoln yet. If past seasons are any indication Lincoln will definitely be tortured, both emotionally and physically.
Now a question just for fun. If Jaha offered you a chance to join his ‘City of Light’ nutjobs how would you react? Use a gif or meme as your answer.
