The 100 “Inclement Weather” Photo Recap – Blood, It’s In You To Give (2.2)

Well guys, another episode of The 100 has torpedoed into our lives, and it left sand, tubes of blood, and imaginary babies in its wake. This episode had its literal ups and downs (get it, because Jaha went from space to earth, and space is up and the earth is down and it’s very late right now and I ate too many mints).

There was some very awesome stuff going on. Miller’s back! Anya’s in a cage! We have a bitchin’ new Grounder leader! The beetle-cure is PINK!

However, this episode didn’t make my skin tingle the way The 100 usually does, and I’ll tell you why. I just do not give two hoots about Thelonious Jaha. I’m so over him that I learned his name and spelled it right. I’M SORRY, OKAY. In my heart, Jaha’s story ended in the season 1 finale. No amount of imaginary babies, broken space suits or miraculous rocket-rides are going to change that. Who knows, maybe he’ll turn into the coolest, badassiest characters on the show and I’ll eat my hat. But as of right now, I’m very, very sorry, but no thank you.

Luckily the other stuff was awesome enough to keep my eyes glued to my TV screen. Let’s get to it!

The episode began with a delightful chat between Kane and Bellemy.

You guys, Kane was being very mean, and Bellamy’s feelings were hurt. Just look at him! I guess there were extra bullets in the bunker, so Bellamy is a bad leader for not finding them. Ugh, Kane, remember when you murdered 320 people for no reason? Go suck an egg.

They brought Murphy to help Bellamy pass the time, and then some noob shot into the woods because he saw movement. But that’s not the important thing we took from this scene:

8

I love this show.

We checked in on Mountain Manner, where we were treated to a familiar face.

9

Miller hasn’t had oodles of screen-time, but almost every line he’s had has been chock-full of sass, and I love it. Welcome back, Miller! Pull up a bunk-bed.

An alarm went off, so of course Special Agent Clarke needed to know what was going down.

10

11

She barged her way into the medical area where she found a body with a gunshot wound. It was the movement from the woods that the noob shot at, you guys! Then a cautionary tale against not wearing sunscreen waltzed in like he owned the place.

But more importantly – new credits! I’m not generally a fan of opening credits. I’m usually watching them thinking, “this is taking away from the time they could be spending having Monty and Jasper high five”, but these credits were relatively short, and rather cool!

At Arc Camp, a badass angel of awesome was making a hard decision.

12

13

Correct, Raven! This show is 65% running through a forest. Take that ability out of the equation and you’re essentially dead already.

Octavia awoke to yet another strange Grounder taking care of her.

14

15

I did not expect a cure made of beetles to be such a pleasing colour!

Back at Mountain Manor, Clarke was gunning for some GD answers.

16

17

18

The Mountain King expertly deflected her inquiries, and we are left knowing absolutely nothing of value, which was tantalizingly masterful.

Up in space (I genuinely thought I was done with that segway forever), Jaha had chased down an adorable figment of his imagination.

19

Nope.

Meanwhile, Abby was plunging a scalpel into our precious, beloved Goddess.

20

21

Remember when you couldn’t get through a Season 1 episode without a hurt glance from Raven? And now she’s sucking it up like a champ and going through surgery, AWAKE, without a single reference to her relationship to Finn? Thank you, show. Thank you so, so very much. Also, a million high fives for Lindsey Morgan. This scene was incredible, and her screams of pain will haunt my dreams.

22

23

Bellamy and the Beautiful Creepster discussed the merits of buckling under torture, versus not… doing that. It was a teen shanty made of tarps, how much information could Murphy have given the Grounders? Doesn’t Bellamy have more pressing beefs with him? For example, that time he tried to hang him? That’s just off the top of my head.

Then screams echoed from yonder forest, and a grumpy redeemed hero ran to check it out.

24

Oh no! ‘The Grounders’ hung these dudes from a tree, just like they did with Jasper. Quick, somebody make a poulstice! (Wait… does that mean… was it really the Mountain Men who speared / hung Jasper in episode 1???? The intrigue!)

Meanwhile the Mountain King was acquiescing to Clarke’s request.

25

26They gave her some BS about the bullet wound actually being an arrow wound, and even had a prop to go with their little skit of lies.

27

Speaking of lies, Kane and Abby had a chat about how he has yet to send out a search party for the missing teens.

28

29

I suppose his reasons are legitimate (safety of the rest of the people, blah blah blah) BUT STILL.

Octavia awoke again to find her new grounder pal packing up camp and giving up on saving Lincoln.

30

31

32

33

You guys, Octavia is kickass! I know we knew that already, but DAMN, GIRL. That was more than ballsy. That was… like, basket-ballsy. No, bigger than that. It was exercise-ballsy! I’ll even overlook the fact that there were several Grounders behind her.

34

Back at Arc Camp, Abby was testing to see if Raven had feeling in her feet.

This was a tense moment because she couldn’t feel her left leg, but honestly, all I could think about was how impressive it was that Lindsey Morgan could hold her foot still as that happened. I would NOT have been able to do that! My feet are ticklish as heck! 

35

Lindsey was amazing this episode.

Meanwhile at Mountain Manor, Clarke and Jasper were in disagreement about the pure intentions of their new roommates.

36

37

38

39

He only had one line in this scene, but Millier KILLED IT. These boys are going to feel pretty darn silly when it’s revealed that Clarke was right the whole time.

40

Nope.

41

Wells! It’s Wells, you guys! It was pretty cool to see him again. Wells, I’m sorry I thought you were a wiener for the majority of your screen time. I hope you’re having a ballin’ time in The 100 Heaven!

Anyway, Jaha realized that the baby was a hallucination (obvs). Then hallucination Wells gave him a pep talk about surviving and my eyes will never be the same because I rolled them so hard. Jaha’s whole thing has been that he wants to die so he can see his son again, so I doubt his subconscious would present itself like this. STOP GIVING ME THAT LOOK I AM JUST SAYING.

Back at camp, Finn broke Bellamy out of “jail” so they could go rescue the others.

42

And they did. Yay!

Clarke saw the sun-burn dude, who had miraculously healed, and decided she needed a trip to medical. Only problem is, only patients get into medical.

43

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH NO THANK YOU. That made me unbearably uncomfortable. Clarke is a BAMF, but she is also a little crazy, you guys! I love it, don’t get me wrong. Dark Clarke is amazing and I never want her to stop doing insane things.

Speaking of insane things, Octavia’s plan worked!

44

But then Reapers came, knocked Octavia out and took Lincoln away. Man, these two crazy kids just cannot catch a break!

The Adventure Squad escaped into the forest when they ran into some grown ups. But TWIST, Abby and Miller’s dad were in on it! Man, some parents just GET IT, you know?

Clarke went snooping in medical and, after climbing through an air duct, found that the Mountain Men were BLEEDING the Grounders! And look who was among them:

45

They have Anya in a cage! IN A CAGE. I was simultaneously filled with rage and joy at seeing our beloved Anya. Dichen Lachman is the coolest and I am VERY pumped for her and Clarke to team up and take over Mountain Manor.

This episode may have been a little too heavy on the Jaha for my liking, but I am LOVING where the story is heading. This show continues to surpass any and all expectations. Keep it coming!

SOME STUFF

  • Did you guys miss the mutated man this week? I sure did. I shall call him Frederick.

 

  • Isaiah Washington is a good actor, and I feel bad that I don’t find his character the least bit interesting, but I just don’t.

 

  • Where do you think he landed? Is his story arc this season going to be a Gilligan’s Island type deal?

 

  • What are you more excited for, the obvious Bellamy/Finn bromance brewing, or the sisterhood of the traveling jacket starting between Clarke and Anya?

 

  • “Maya, top of the morning… is a dumb thing to say that I saw in an old movie once.” – Oh Jasper, never change!

    You know, we see Bellamy and Lincoln’s abs all the time, but we hardly ever see how astonishingly hot the women are. For instance, this is the only time we ever get to see Clarke’s legs. And she has awesome legs.
    I’m thinking about starting a petition to demand that the women of The 100 occasionally wear skirts or shorts or something, just to even things out. (Naturally, fairness and balance are my only motivations.)

    hilarious recap.
    Totally loving S2 of The 100. And to think I didn’t think it would make it past the first few eps of S1. I sure was wrong (and I’m glad of that). Someone though, please remind me who Miller is. Before the latest episode, I don’t remember ever seeing him before, and now all of a sudden everyone is excited that he’s back…

    I only remember seeing Miller for the first time when Lincoln was tied up in the Dropship, about halfway through S1. I think all of the previous right-hand-men got killed off in random tragedies or something, so Miller got promoted.

    Loved the recap! (as always, long-time silent-ish fan here)
    But I think Kane is actually right here. He’s been tasked with look out for the rest of their people, who are probably in the 200+ range. He didn’t say he was veto-ing looking for the missing kids (who have honestly survived this long, they can last for a bit longer) he just thinks they need to build up some security and safety for all the people left.
    LOGICAL. PRACTICAL. As Kane has always been, what he isn’t anymore that he was in S1 is conniving, scheming, out-for-power, he’s just looking out for all the people currently in his care. All kinds of people including even younger kids. I wouldn’t blame his for not wanting to waste valuable set-up time and security forces on a bunch of juvies who, in his society, probably would’ve been executed by now.
    You can tell that even Abbey would follow this ‘look after the majority’ thinking since, as Clarke’s mother, she would be heading up their search party (and there’s nothing Kane can say against solo missions) but she know, as a doctor, that she is needed with the people. Just like the security force and man-power are needed.

    Charissa29
    Nov 03, 2014
    You aren’t wrong, which I find annoying as I’m cranky about Kane’s attitude. He isn’t wrong for wanting to keep his people safe. He is wrong for thinking that the laws and behaviors from the Ark are appropriate down on Earth. Most of all he is wrong to torture Abby. I understand that he feels that she disregarded his authority, but since that is what she does he should be used to it. Someone needs to slap him in the face and say “Snap out of it!”

    Isobel
    Nov 04, 2014

    Isobel
    Nov 06, 2014
    Okay, but still in hindsight, this comment was made BEFORE Kane went too far and people were still irrationally annoyed with him. That was the feeling and anger I didn’t get because by the end of episode 2, there still wasn’t anything that warranted it.

    falafelfalifulfalafol
    Nov 06, 2014
    Cmon, it’s was Ark’s second law. First law is to float for every felony except is you are Abby, for whom second law of the 10 electric slashes apply.

    Anya is back, Anya is back, Anya is back (dancing around the house)…..
    Now Clarke and Anya should, after doing a little besties dance, take the Mountain men down and form a new Amazon clan to run the planet.

    Awesome recap! Just to let you know, your Kane and Bellamy portion of this photo recap is one of my favorites so far.
    I was honestly aching for a lengthy, yelling, emotional but bad ass, screaming-in-Kane’s-face speech from someone like Raven or Bellamy or Finn (preferably Bellamy) about the whole “You don’t know what we’ve been through…” aspect of the situation that Kane doesn’t seem to get. It’s like, the teens they sent down aged exponentially during their time on Earth. These teenagers you are ordering around have have been in situations where they have had to kill people- with their bare hands- in order to stay alive.
    Kane, have you survived through a blood-vomit disease? Get stabbed through the heart with a spear and get left baited on a tree? Bashed a carnivore’s (who was trying to eat you) skull in with a rock? Killed a giant black panther? Been hung with a noose? Fought a war? Built a society from scratch?
    It’s all so frustrating, so I’m just really looking forward to Kane’s realization that he has no idea what he’s doing, but the 100 do.
    Excited to see Miller and Anya again. Would be awesome if Miller turned into more of a main character, which, with the introduction of his father, seems possible. Thanks for the awesome recap!

    Absolutely! Hopefully the adults, especially Kane, will be humbled pretty quickly and end up asking the 100 for help.

    Priya gets a metaphorical cage, Anya gets an actual one. Dichen Lachman’s characters just cannot win 😦

    weasleysweater
    Nov 01, 2014
    While I felt a caged Anya level of rage at how mean Kane was being to Bellamy, I sort of understand where he’s coming from.
    He’s as scared as anyone but has to hide it and act like he knows what he’s doing, which he doesn’t at all, and that probably makes him feel weak, which he also has to hide. Ending up with him being a big, jerky, blowhard.
    Hopefully he’ll figure out Arc rules don’t need to apply anymore and be cool again.
    I’m just so glad the adventure squad is free of the grown-ups.

    Charissa29
    Nov 01, 2014
    Yes, but for how long? In the pictures it looks like Finn and Bellamy and some Grounders are in the art supply store, and Finn is getting ready to kill one. Some weird symmetry going on if BELLAMY is the voice of reason.
    Too many disparate threads. Rothenberg et al need to start bringing them together again, because the really interesting part about last season involved watching the kids grow in understanding of this new world and themselves.
    The adults never really grew, their world didn’t change last season, and even Kane didn’t actually learn anything. Hopefully we will get to watch them evolve this season, as well as the 54? 56? 52? Ehhh, however many are left.

    Great recap thanks!
    I know I’m in the minority but I like Jaha…
    But I’m definitely disappointed in what they’re doing with Kane so far.
    The crucified guys were Ark people, right? Nobody seemed to care about it – it was a little weird. Why would Kane send his people out right after that? Maybe I missed something with that?

    falafelfalifulfalafol

    Kane has to get bad so they can redeem him again.

    Oct 31, 2014
    I didn’t comment last week, so let me start out by saying: Yay! The 100 is back and all our peeps are alive! YAY-EE-YAY-EE-YAY!
    Ok. Now I’m gonna throw out a theory…bear with me.
    The mountain men have some nefarious stuff that they are and have orchestrated…particularly the creepy president. The reapers work for the MM, collecting grounders to keep them alive (the reapers get the leftovers I would assume.) I don’t think the grounders staked people out or crucified them or speared Jasper for that matter. It was all an elaborate ruse. The MM or the reapers doing their bidding are responsible for it. (I wonder if getting ahold of Jasper early on allowed the MM to study the space teens’ biology, like good ole’ vitamin D count….maybe MM intervention is why he survived such a horrific wound.) the MM observed the space teens, got them to fear grounders, so the MM could swoop in like saviors Bc they need the teens alive and willing. The grounders militaristic societal structure would make a lot on sense in this scenario. They needed to protect themselves from MM and reapers….p.s. Reapers, as in reaping a harvest of poor grounders.
    Anyway, quick rundown:
    1. I was moved by Jaha’s exit last season….a good guest knows when the party is over….JS.
    2. Don’t be a dick, Kane. Don’t be a dick.
    3. Hey Miller. How you doin’? 😉
    4. Raven=awesome..one of the constants in the universe.
    5. Octavia is tired of being runner-up for the awesome title in the bad ass mofo pagent. Strong showing girl.
    6. Good at see ya Murph.
    7. 2 new grounders -healer guy…LOL totally not fazed by anything. “Alright girl, do what you gotta do.” -leader lady….glad to see life after true blood.
    8. Was Monty in this episode? Where is Monty? Would someone please rework his contract. Please. What is this every other episode BS? Not havin it. Nuh-uh.
    9. Love, love, love the captions for creepy prez. I read them while nodding my head. Yep, you nailed the subtext in his scenes. LOL!
    10. I think the absolute best line of your recap: They took my jacket. Anya will def make vampire MM pay for that. River corpse jackets of that quality are hard to come by.
    11. Clarke, you really are the smartest!
    12. I’m a hardcore shipper, so I’m gonna leave you on this note: I think the point of Bellamy covered in gore the past 2 episodes was to make him a little less attractive, so we could focus on all the horror happening. Didn’t work. Bellamy’s hot, even covered in blood. Cannot wait until he sees Clarke again. I think we will get a moment…a subtle moment. This is a slow burn after all. The only thing that moves slowly on this show is their relationship.
    Loved the recap Toni, as usual. See you next week.

    Toni_watches Oct 31, 2014

    Nov 01, 2014
    Hmmm, interesting theory! Got me thinking. I was trying to figure out how one of the MM got shot, and it seemed to be by the Arc, but minutes later Arc guards get crucified which they assume is grounders. Were grounders and MM both there or is there something going on as you suggest!

    Oenc
    Oct 31, 2014
    My theory: Octavia is gonna become a leader of the grounder tribe some how because of her crazy love for Lincoln and bad assery. But yeah I am a little over them.
    Jaha- I didn’t like the baby thing. It was so obv but I like that he is coming back to earth because the other dude is annoying and stupid as hell. They need each other to balance their characters out. I wonder what they want with the space kids though? They could have easily locked them up too… I have a feeling its for breeding purposes. On tainted as they were in space. Pure.

    Great recap, as usual!
    i want to know why Eve has a top with some lovely pin tucking and Clarke is wearing ……. coral. Her hair is looking lovely though and I hope she’s taking her shampoo with her cause Octavia could really use some.
    Totally with you on the unnecessary continuation of Jaha’s life and reappearance of Wells. Supercute baby though, which is always important.
    I need to see Bellamy doing something significant again. Right now he’s all mopey and I don’t like it. Pissing contest over who could withstand torture longer was a bit daft. As you say, what info did Murphy have? “Okay, I give in, we have 8 crappy tents and 3 bottles of moonshine, don’t hurt me”
    Still, can’t wait for next week!

    I love Jasper! But he needs to wake up soon or they are gonna eat him alive in Mt Weather! Clarke is not getting through to him, maybe Monty can convince him and if not, well Octavia needs to go to that place too and snap him out of it!
    BTW I am kind of over the love story of Octavia/Lincoln. The whole ROmeo/Juliet story is just overdone.
    I kinda thought the Jasper/Octavia interaction and dynamic was more fun to watch. Hope they reunite soon. Loved me some Jactavia, Marie & Devon had great chemistry..

    Should we be suspicious of Miller’s beard?
    How did he grow one so quickly when nobody else even got stubble last season?
    Maybe he had a beard last year but I didn’t notice it because he was wearing a hat? I genuinely didn’t recognise him with no hat.

    weasleysweater
    Oct 31, 2014
    I’m so glad he’s alive, but didn’t recognize him without his scowl. He looked so happy! He was fairly stubbly last season, but since he’s supposed to be under 18, I don’t know why they let him have a full beard like that. Sorry, Miller, I’m glad you’re still on the show!

    I have no time for Jaha. None.
    I am struggling to have time for Lincoln and Octavia in their separate story too but I’m coping, I’ll get by, it’s fine. But that is taking all of my good will.
    I can do Mt. Weather and Camp Jaha, I cannot do real Jaha.
    Seriously though, next week we potentially have Mt. Weather inmates, Clarke and Anya, Camp Jaha, Adventure Squad, Lincoln, Octavia and then Jaha on his lonesome ownsome in the desert. I fully trust this show to bring the many threads together in a much more timely fashion than any other show would but still, that’s too many threads!
    Can we talk about Abby checking Bellamy out two weeks in a row?

    weasleysweater
    Oct 31, 2014
    I noticed her checking out Bellamy! I think those actors just have so much charisma they can’t help but give off those sexual chemistry vibes.
    But as a mom and a medical professional, why didn’t Abby see that Bellamy and the others get a washcloth or a band-aid or something?

    MACYLIGHTFOOT
    Oct 31, 2014
    I thought the same thing. Bellamy’s face was covered in open wounds and he didn’t even get to wipe it!
    Also, and I do understand the reasoning, Abby sending the kids off into the woods alone to find her kid was kind of bad adulting. I’m going to stay here where it’s safe, you guys go probably get killed. Byeeee.

    Oenc
    Oct 31, 2014
    Yeah but she probably figures that they survived this long and know more about the forest and grounders and stuff. It was logical.

    I really like Jaha and I can’t wait for him to reunite with his people. I’m glad he’s down on the ground.
    Clarke continues to be the Queen. Walking into whatever rooms she wants to and rippping her stitches open to get some damn answers. That shot of her in the chair looked like she was actually sitting on her throne. President Wallace will be sorry he ever messed with these kids.
    Jasper, please stop being annoying. They need to give Monty something to do. I like him way more than Jasper.
    The only flop this season is the storyline of Lincoln and Octavia. Just not feeling it.
    Yay for Beautiful Creepster going on an adventure with the boys!
