The 100 “Resurrection” Photo Recap – Starring; Hugs (2.13)


You know how in Batman Forever, the Riddler had a device that allowed him to see into people’s dreams and learn of their secrets / deepest desires? Well guys, slap a ridiculous green suit on The 100 and dye its hair red, because I’m pretty sure it has this device, and has used it to figure out exactly what I want out of each and every episode.

This show not only portrays amazing three-dimensional characters, but also six-dimensional relationships. (Get it? Cause three plus three… nevermind). What I’m trying to say is that I’m here for the hugs, and Resurrection DELIVERED.

This week’s episode let us all take a breath and savour the precious few moments before shit really hits the fan. Yes, there was tons of murder (like… TONS of it). Yes, some favourites were put in some serious danger that had me clenching my jaw, and yes, there were at least 2 major hugs. Doesn’t sound like a “breather” episode, but this is The 100, so yeah, it was.

I would like to make myself perfectly clear: this is NOT a complaint. The episode was character driven instead of “holy shit what the eff just happened????” driven. If you think about it plot-wise, not a whole heck of a lot happened. But if you look at the emotional stakes involved, then this episode was HUGE. Rubicon ended with a bang (*wink*), and I’m so very glad Ressurection let us sit back and watch the literal and emotional fallout.

The episode began with our beloved heroine surveying the destruction.







Meanwhile, Abby was not loving everyone’s concern for her daughter.



Lincoln found Indra under some rocks and dragged her out like the buried treasure she is. She basically shrugged him off and was all, “cooties”, then SHE WAS SHOT. I’ve always liked the intense ferocity that is Indra, but I never knew how much I loved her until I screamed, “not Indra!” As my screams echoes through my empty apartment, I ate another Rolo and recognized just how much I love this character.







Clarke is really itching to do some murder, and I don’t blame her!

Abby heard a beat in tune to the beat of her heart, and sensed her love interest was in danger.


And this was all before the opening credits! So much turmoil!

Back at Mountain Mannor, Jasper was large and in charge.






And he is, isn’t he? Magnificent, I mean. SWOOOOOOOON.




This was both humorous and awesome. Indra subscribes to the “learn by doing” method of teaching, it seems.

Back at the Manor, the Mountain Minions threw gas into the clubhouse, and found our teens slumbering like peaceful little angels, dreaming of sugar plums and the upcoming Avengers movie.






YOU GUYS. This scene was brutal and upsetting and 100% grade-A for Awesome. Our teens flat-out destroyed the Mountain Minions. All was not won, though, as they found out that Fox, a glorified red-shirt, had been taken.




Abby dug her way to Kane using only her burning love to guide her, but his leg was trapped!


But nope! She couldn’t do it, so she decided to have a little sit for a bit.

Meanwhile, a handsome young hero was stopping all the bone marrow from being sucked out of a plucky red shirt.



Granted, this hug didn’t have the impact the others did, but it’s nice that Bellamy is getting some recognition!

Then they decided to have a slumber party at Maya’s house.




Is there a Mrs. Maya’s Dad, because HELLO SIR. We got some Maya backstory, which you know I gobbled up faster than my jumbo-sized package of Rolos. Turns out a rebel’s heart beats within Maya because she takes after her mom, who refused vampire treatment. What a cool family!

Lincoln, with some unfortunate phrasing, decided to go after the shooter, but ran into these gals instead. 






Lincoln was ON to them!



Abby was in the middle of telling Kane how she thinks her daughter is the worst, when their love-cave fell apart and they were both buried. 


Octavia pulled a hilarious Die Hard worthy move and threw some alcohol into a fire, creating enough smoke-cover for them to scurry over to the cave-in. It was fun to watch, AND she got two new members for her fan club!


Look at their faces! They are in love and I don’t blame them.

Back at the Manor, Maya had gotten herself into a spot of trouble.



The Mountain Prince was hip to the wise, and sent Maya in with only 20 minutes of oxygen, hoping it would force our teens to give themselves up. Oh, Mountain Prince. When will you learn?

After Abby told Kane about Clarke, he pointed out that they aren’t in a position to judge anyone ever until the end of time.







Monty, in a fit of awesome, ripped the wires out of the lock, and a handsome hero popped out of the garbage shoot, resulting in this:



But most importantly…


This was beautiful, you guys. BELLAMY’S EYES ARE CLOSED. This boy just wants to be loved, you know? I like to think that he and Miller had a tearful reunion off screen that was too intense for the show to air.

Meanwhile, Clarke, Lexa and Lincoln tracked down the shooter and there was a skuffle.



She shot Lincoln through the shoulder in order to kill the Mountain Minion! It was badass, but she was still super sad afterwards, which hit me in the emotions.

After believing himself to be the smartest dude ever, the Mountain Prince found an empty room, devoid of his bone-marrow-bags.



They escaped! And made friends! There are going to be so many more slumber parties!


Maya’s Hot Dad really came through, you guys. He has a whole network of people sympathetic to our heroes’ plight. Plus, he’s super attractive. Have I mentioned that?

Underground, Kane took a nap, but that made Abby angry, so she was able to push the rocks off of her.


This was, in all honestly, pretty hilarious. Like, WHY couldn’t she do that before?? Did she get bitten by a radioactive spider as she sat there? Anyway, the point is, she Hulked her way out of there to stroke Kane’s hair as Octavia gymnastics her way in. Oh, and the sky people showed up to help. How nice!


But waaaaaaaay more importantly:


This. Was. Incredible. Indra HUGED Lincoln! My heart exploded and now my apartment is covered in heart-splatter and it’s your fault, The 100.


Clarke looks rough, you guys. On the upside, her and Abby made up!


And off they went to war!

How are your hearts, you guys? Do you want/need a super dramatic hug right now?

If we truly think about it, nothing changed as far as the plot goes. SO MUCH happened, and yet in a different sense, nothing happened. The Mountain kids are still running amok, Clarke, Lexa and the gang are still on their way, and Bellamy is still a loose cannon inside the Mountain. However we got to see; an emotional breakthrough in Abby, Octavia prove herself, Lincoln fight his demons, and Clarke realize that more violence isn’t a band-aid for her guilt.

This episode was an amazing set-up for next week’s shit storm, because it reminded us just how much we love these characters. It also reminded us that at any moment we could lose them (like we’d ever forget).

I am, as always, very pumped for next week.


  • It is never too serious a situation for an adorable friendship-high-five.


  • Clarke wants ALL the Mountain Men dead. But what about the children, Clarke? WHAT ABOUT LOVEJOY, CLARKE???


  • Say “zombie toots” out loud. You won’t regret it.


  • “Don’t tell me Finn finally got his peace talks.” – “Something like that.” Why don’t you just slap Bellamy across the face, Jasper?


  • “Leave the hallway cameras, we’ll need eyes out there.” – “You can do that?” – “Have you met me?” SWOON, Monty.


  • Hot dad.


  • HUGS

    Thumbs up, you got a follower! 🙂

    I’ve watched S1 and S2 a few times now, and I think this is one of my favorite episodes so far on the show. Even though it was mostly just the aftermath of 2×12, it somehow managed to be one of the most emotionally powerful episodes. From the beginning, with the muffled sound, the dark chaotic imagery, and the poor, slow-motion horse running with its ass on fire, to when the song played out the end as everyone walked off to war, the whole thing felt like one long, shuddering emotional wreck that was trying to get back on its feet.
    It felt like the entire show got hit so hard that it briefly lost cohesion, and this episode was about the struggle it went through as it tried to pull itself back into a solid, stable form. It was awesome.

    “This was, in all honestly, pretty hilarious. Like, WHY couldn’t she do that before?? Did she get bitten by a radioactive spider as she sat there? Anyway, the point is, she Hulked her way out of there to stroke Kane’s hair as Octavia gymnastics her way in.”
    Maybe when she thought Kane was dying she got a surge of adrenaline and desperation, and that gave her the energy to move the rock. Sexual tension powers really might have been how she did it.

    Mar 31, 2015
    but the thing is that the first time jasper and bellamy hugged, bellamy didn’t hug back…but this time he actually huGGED BACK AND OH MY GOODNESS HE JUST NEEDS CUDDLES BECAUSE HE HAS HAD A REALLY ROUGH TIME AND JUST NEEDS A HUG FOR IT TO BE OKAY MY POOR HEART

    Mar 06, 2015
    “I drowned a monkey??” I love all of your recaps but this one had me crying with laughter.

    Feb 24, 2015
    this show is amazing, i mean amazing, im not kidding, idk if its the ladies, man i look left theres ocatvia, i look right theres lexa and in the middle is ofc clarke
    i must say, i`m waiting for dragon ball z to being made by CW because watching The 100 im pretty sure they have the cgi to do it.
    Returning to The 100,well amazing, i mean so much potential, so many mysteries it can go, i can see from a mile that this show CANT BE CANCELLED!!!!
    anyway, the shows name still pretty lame to me, altough changing it now would be even more lame.
    This is AMAZING SCI-FI tbh. maybe im being fooled because before this only BSG led me into the sci-fi adventure greatness.
    I have no words.
    PS: im in love with lexa but i think shes more interested in clarke ;D still i would give an arm to be in the same room with them both

    Feb 22, 2015
    There was a missing hug that should have happened between Clarke and Octavia towards the end of the episode. It made me sad when they didn’t.

    Feb 24, 2015
    only true hug will be between clarke and lexa, they will make out for sure.

    Feb 27, 2015
    are you psychic

    Feb 27, 2015
    i saw them both in “making of” speacial, they were with some weird chemistry, like this,
    so sweet, i notest it could happen, anyway they are both gorgeous, still i prefer lexa, surprise?? xD

    Feb 27, 2015
    pretty much this

    Feb 27, 2015
    No! It was just telegraphed that well and not shoved down our throats for sweeps!

    Feb 21, 2015
    no Ponyta cap? guess you were never into pokemon 🙂

    Feb 21, 2015
    Jasper should have asked in Finn was ALIVE from the end of S1’s attack. Remember when they thought he was dead?

    Feb 22, 2015
    yeah he should have but I guess since as soon as Bellamy talked about peace he thought Finn was negociating with the grounders there was no reason to ask if he was alive

    Feb 21, 2015
    Has anyone else the sneaking suspicion that Lincoln is Indra’s son or something… I don’t see any other explanation for that hug…

    Feb 22, 2015
    I thought the exact same thing.

    Feb 24, 2015
    i think indra`s too young to have a 30y son, shes barely 40y, but hey, i dont know how the grounders sex work, maybe she had him at very young age,

    Mar 20, 2015
    she looks 45/50.

    Feb 21, 2015
    totally.jpgThat was hilarius!!!

    Feb 21, 2015
    OMG I just accidentally stumbled on this and was like “Where the heck have I been??? This it hilarious!!!” I literally laughed so hard the entire time!!!! #teamToni_watches

    Feb 21, 2015
    Quote for this episode:
    And this one made me cry
    Clarke to Lincoln – you are my people
    That was sweet and prouves that Lincoln and Octavia are more than the obvious Roméo and Juliette they Both got accepted by their respective people and is moving

    Feb 21, 2015
    Oh my G…
    This episode was amazing….
    Good news Maya has parents… I was wondering about that for a while.
    And her dad seems pretty cool easy to Turn but still pretty cool he did help them as affraid as he was.
    Notice that Lincoln is still affected by the reaper device which might not come handy once they start using the one Craven created for them.
    Abby finaly realized that the decisions grown-ups made on the arc were almost the same as the one Clarke and Lexa have to make now. Thank Kane for that once again he was the voice of reason in this episode.
    Octavia managed to prove herself to even more grounders… Respectable once none the less which was really gratifying to watch she knows the place she hold in the alligeance and she is ready to hold it.
    I don’t think we will see Dark Clarke after all unless something unbearable happens in the last episode of the season she seems pretty attached to people and to her emotions.
    But Jasper is ready to go all dark I think Dante is Göring to be very sorry for his actions if Jasper finds him… Plus I think Bellamy blow him off when he asked to come with him because Jasper has been asking a lot of questions about things outside Mount Weather and Bellamy doesn’t seem to be willing to chat about Finn and Clarke and the all grounders / sky-people stuff….
    Abby trying to save Kane was cute she did ont even care for the other people who were with them until they were out and safe… And she swear secrecy to Clarke and what 2hours after that she was blabbing everything to Kane… I mean Come on Abby I know she thought he was going to die and he was genually worried about Clarke’s safety but did she learn nothing from the all “I spilled your dad’s secret to Jaha ans he got floated for it” she needs to learn to keep some stuff to herself she was lucky Kane with perfectly Okay with what Clarke did.
    Clarke was perfect in this episode . She was fully award of what happened she showed no restrain when it came to keeping her people safe. She took charge of what needed to be done ont only with the sniper but also when it was clear that they had no more prepping time they needed to go now. Ans she did not shoot Lincoln I have a feeling that in the same situation Lexa would have been a shoot first ask question if he is still alive kind of girl
    Bellamy was, well, he was Bellamy…
    The problem I forsight is that nos there is a lot of Mountain men Bellamy will ne willing to keep alive and Clarke and obviously the grounders are kind of in a kill them all kind of mood…

    Feb 20, 2015
    My reaction to the above scene: the Bromance is BAAAACCCK!!! XD I was so excited ^_^

    Feb 20, 2015
    Seriously… Your photo recaps of the 100 are one of the main reasons I’ve been coming to this site lately. Sorry for not “heart”ing and commenting on your posts… even though I’ve read pretty much every The 100 article you’ve written! Keep up the good work!

    Feb 20, 2015
    This is episode/recap drove me to finally register so I could comment! 🙂
    Was so hoping that Kane wouldn’t die…and absolutely loved that he blamed them for Clarke’s decisions. “She grew up on the Ark.” Loved
    Hug #5 was so awesome. Glad Bellamy is getting more screen time lately.
    And I couldn’t help but thinking that the PTB have been reading your recaps, Toni, since they did some rocking when the group was headed to Mt Weather at the end of the episode.

    Feb 20, 2015
    I love you Toni and I ak not afraid to say it!!! I have been in deep-like with you for as long as you have been recapping but Home Alone reference?! Wow just wow. You cant see me right now but i am standing and slow clapping (jks im laying in my bed writing this at 3:40 in the morning hoping i dont get busted, but if everyone wasnt asleep as I read this then damn there would be some applause!!!! Because these recaps are the best!!!!! And Hug#5 was definitely my favourite.

    Feb 20, 2015
    Hands up if you were confused when Jasper mentioned Finn….. I genuinely forgot he existed, and then forgot that the had only died like 5 minutes ago so they obviously didn’t know about it. Or maybe they did but just forgot he existed too?

    Feb 20, 2015
    Monty is the best and this was hilarious! Haha so much teamclarke love slapped in abby’s face. Seriousy Abby, support your kid more! Jasper and his crew were badass, but I’m more impressed with Maya and her family because they’re sacrificing heaps. Can’t wait for mooreeee.

    Feb 20, 2015
    “Sexual Tension Powers Activate” – I can’t stop laughing…

    hbf716 Feb 20, 2015
    I just love how badass Octavia and Bellamy are. What an awesome gene pool.

    Feb 20, 2015
    Oh hey both Murphy and Maya’s hot dad are in Bates Motel- another hilariously awesome show (it’s on netflix too, so easy access haha).
    Also- Jaspar Nevilled the shit out of this episode. Best.

    Feb 22, 2015
    Maya’s dad is also in Continuum…and so is Murphy! 😀
    Richard Harmon seems to be one of those actors, like Dichen Lachman and Tahmoh Penikett, who just dominates in sci-fi.
    All The Swoons.

    Feb 21, 2015
    So that’s where I seen him (Maya’s hot dad) from. It nagged me during some of the episode that saw him somewhere else.

    Toni_watches Feb 20, 2015
    GASP. “Nevilled” as a verb just made me so unbelievably happy, and is so perfect for this situation. Well done.

    Feb 20, 2015
    This episode was absolutely PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not 100%sure i can recover from that. geez how is the 100 so intense all the time? I love it so much there are not words.
    Also Toni, I love these. they never fail to make my week. Keep going because if you stop i might have to kill you.
    and aren’t Rolos the absolute best!?

    Feb 20, 2015
    Seriously love Kane! He practically told Abby everything I was thinking when she went all judgmental on Clarke. “Hey, remember that time we were totally okay with sending 100 kids including your daughter to see if earth would kill us or not? Hey, remember that time that we killed 300 people to save ourselves and most definitely didn’t volunteer to join them? Hey, remember that time you floated your husband? Hey, remember that time we weren’t going to tell the like 1000 people still alive the ship to earth only held like 400? Remember all those other people we killed for yourselves? Yeah, good times. Now what were you saying about your high ground over Clarke?”

    Feb 20, 2015
    The best thing about that conversation was that he said it all with such humility and self-awareness that Abby didn’t go on the defensive and instead just heard him, and got it, took it to heart. Love him!

    Feb 20, 2015
    Wonderful as always. Lexa puns, snark-O-rama, sexual tension powers activated! Yay.

    Feb 20, 2015
    Note to anyone out there in TV land who is still on the fence about whether or not they should be watching this show: The 100’s version of a “breather episode” included a burning horse, a hot chick drinking straight alcohol and then exploding stuff with it, another hot chick killing a guy by trick-shooting a bullet through another guy, someone decapitating someone with an axe, two main-characters crushed under a building and literally ANYONE could have died a gruesome death at any given moment. I feel rested!!
    If you still aren’t watching this show after reading that, I don’t know what’s wrong with you. I mentioned the burning horse right?

    Feb 20, 2015
    But Toni, did you see Jasper and Monty do their personalized high five, even if Jasper had to do his part with an ax? Best part of the episode….except for Maya’s hot dad. He’s a silver-hared clone of Paul Blackthorne. They should star in a old dudes buddy comedy where they show their crusader daughters how being a hero is really done (and I like Maya – just want more of her dad!)
    Clarke/Lexa’s dialogue after killing the spotter was identical to Raven/Bellamy’s dialogue after they slept together. What does it MEAN?????

    Feb 26, 2015
    Ahhh what was that dialogue about? I already deleted the episode, can’t rewind 😦

    Feb 20, 2015
    OMG – I did not notice that about the dialogue. You are so right.

    Feb 20, 2015
    I killed a man because I was on a diet and he smelled like peanut butter.
    Holy shit!!!
    The dialogue between Kane and Abby was hilarious!
    I love those Home Alone references.

    Feb 20, 2015
    That was about Shumway being captured by Kane in S1, after a riff on peanut butter in the photo recap. Not only doesn’t the show forget what has happened but neither does Toni! See? I really enjoy these recaps.

    Feb 20, 2015
    I was wondering if anyone would catch that. 😉 Gold star.

    I am loving JAsper´s character development. He is starting to become a leader right in front of our eyes. And yes, he didn´t manage his emotions well when he axed that guard, but in some way you understand why he did it. He´s lost so many friends in that Mountain now. Blood for blood. Devon Bostick is a fantastic actor.
    PS: The Jasper/Bellamy hug was everything. This show really is so awesome.

    Feb 19, 2015
    Never stop writing these reviews.

    Feb 19, 2015
    Just an FYI the actor that plays Maya’s Father is well known Canadian actor Ian Tracey who is pretty much in anything filmed in Vancouver and the rest of Canada since the 80’s. Also his son is actor Keenan Tracey who played dearly departed Stirling that went hurtling to his death earlier this season. Thought you might like that Toni 🙂

    Mar 06, 2015
    Just checked out a photo of Keenan and whoa, there is indeed a strong family resemblance to MHD.

    Feb 20, 2015
    Wow! Bravo you!

    Feb 19, 2015
    Not that I looked this up on

    Feb 19, 2015
    Wait wait, imagine if Clarke & Raven hug was in this episode too…
    By the way this sexual tension thing is the best thing after Lexa’s puns.
    This episode was all bloody and heartwarming at the same time, it’s like the 100 writers blended a tower sized fire shooting furnace with a goddamn iceberg that sank Titanic and this episode was the aftermath.
    I was hoping Miller was gonna have the reunion moment with Bellamy but instead it was Jasper, oh well, at least he got a hug too.
    Loving Indra even more than I used to!
    MORE HUGS PLEASE! (and mountain men blood of course)

    Feb 24, 2015
    i forgot raven, omg, too much hot this show, 4 hot chicks, i mean, there smore but these 4, i cant choose.

    Feb 19, 2015
    Devon is really killing it every week (heh.) Jasper’s character growth has been amazing. – that axe hack that had him reeling was great, I like how both he and Clarke tried (and failed) to work through their feelings by lashing out in deadly violence. Although I do worry that they’re setting Jasper up as a new leader with Bellamy so it makes me wonder what’s going to happen to Clarke by season’s end.

    Feb 20, 2015
    Don’t worry about Clarke; worry about Bellamy…

    Feb 19, 2015
    so it’s interesting to note we now have seen 3 people that used to be on the same show coninuum

    Feb 19, 2015
    They are obviously freelancers there to correct the time lime.

    Feb 20, 2015
    Haha. Awesome!

    Feb 20, 2015
    Thats what I was thinking!!!!!

    Feb 21, 2015
    More Gaza!

    Feb 19, 2015
    Fantastic photo recap as always! Thx Toni 🙂
    I love Indra ever since she became Octavia’s teacher / master. That was such an awesome idea to pair these two!
    “Marry Me”, “Camping” and “We were totally here the whole time!”- Team Clexa Forever! 🙂

    Feb 19, 2015
    Courtesy of this cap i dropped half a pizza on to my laptop…LOOOL ”oh hey Clarke.

    Feb 19, 2015
    i almost expected to see the headless horseman there…
