The 100 “Ye Who Enter Here” Photo Recap – Ice, Ice, Baby (3.3)

YOU GUYS. I wonder what my neighbours must think of me, and the sounds coming from my apartment. First, the stream of Disney karaoke, then the clucking of roughly 5 live chickens (don’t ask), then yodeling, and now, because of this week’s episode of The 100, an hour long barrage of “oh shit, Oh Shit, OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHIT!!!!”

Basically, if I wasn’t yelling “Oh shit!” at my TV screen, I was screaming, “KISS!!” Was there a sexual tension competition going on that day? I mean, obviously Kane and Abby win by a landslide every time, but they had some SERIOUS competition this week!

Let’s quickly acknowledge a scientifically proven fact: Ye Who Enter Here was insane. Just off-the-wall bonkers, and I was loving every second. Not only was there no Jaha, but there was death, twists, political intrigue, reunions, and no Jaha. 

The episode began with a one week time jump, which after the three months between seasons 2 and 3, doesn’t seem like a lot, but it is! I like that the show is allowing our beloved characters to stew in their emotions this season. They’re given time to allow their shit to catch up to them, and watching them deal with it is delicious.

Anyway, Clarke was just chillin’ in her new jail-pad, when Lexa paid her a visit and asked her to marry her, or something.

TENSE! Basically, Lexa was all, “join my slumber party”, and Clarke was like, “you invited me to a slumber party last week and put my hand in warm water when I fell asleep, so no dice,” and Lexa was like, “c’monnnnnnn, that was just a joke! It won’t happen again.” And Clarke was like, “suck an egg, lady.”

Then Lexa had to attend a staff meeting, where a certain Ice Cube was being rather rude.

Lexa is so badass, you guys. This fellow was talking smack about her as a leader, and she showed him what’s up. Or down, I guess.

13

14

15

What was this scene about? I don’t even know. Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!

Meanwhile, at Mountain Manor…

16

17

Oh… you! Do we know this girl’s name? Is she in the credits under “Bellamy’s doomed lady friend?” I’m not going to look it up for obvious reasons.

18

19

Farmville had essentially colonized the Mountain, which I’m sure will be fine. Right? Who cleaned up all the bodies, I wonder? Probably the extras. That probably why they’re so rude all the time.

25

26

No one on this earth can resist the charming allure of The Princess Bride. No one. HUMPERDINK, HUMPERDINK, HUMPERDINK!!!

Roan wants Clarke to kill Lexa and then join the Ice Nation cheerleading squad, and she was like, “I’ll mull it over.”

27

28

Emo Octavia is my favourite. Of course, in this case, Emo Octavia said aloud the thoughts we were ALL thinking. Moving into Mount Weather is a terrible idea. Oh well, I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Then a sexy cage Grounder showed up!

29

30

31

There’s an assassin at the summit! The Sky people are in danger!

32

33

And off they went!

34

35

KISS! KISS! KISS!

Abby has made some terrible decisions (which I got a lot of twitter-flack for pointing out last recap – sorry folks, I calls ‘em as I sees ‘em!), BUT, it does show a lot of strength and maturity to recognize when someone else might be better at doing what you do. You all know I love Abby (remember when she stood up to Jaha and I wanted to high five everyone in the world?), terrible decisions and all. So this was a nice nod to what makes Abby a strong character. It’s a different strength than her daughter. A strength that was cultivated in an operating room, not a battle field.

Anyway, they’re going to hold an election. Yay!

Then Lexa’s adviser was all, “you gonna kill Clarke, or what?”, and Lexa was like, “nuh uh. #TeamClarke”, and then Titus rolled his eyes and was like, “teens.”

36

37

38

KISS! KISS! KISS!

This scene was absolute perfection, and if you weren’t clawing at your face in beautiful anxiety, then I’m not sure you’re a human, and you should probably turn yourself in to Mulder and Scully. Clarke almost slit Lexa’s throat! Then she didn’t! Then she was like, “fine, I’ll marry you, but you’re in charge of groceries”.

39

40

41

No one could pass up an ice cream sundae bar. No one.

Anyway, then in a HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL scene, Clarke pledged her undying love and devotion to Lexa, while the creeptastic assassin rubbed raspberry jam all over himself, and the Adventure Squad fought their way up an elevator shaft.

42

43

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY:

44

Who is this gorgeous chanteuse?? What’s your story, Grounder Singer?? Are you for-hire for special Grounder events? Do you have a day job of fashioning secret weapon holders? Is that a leather corset? I am so captivated, and if someone doesn’t write a scintillating fan-fiction about this lady, then my life is over.

Anyway, just as Lexa was starting to go over their meeting power-point, the Adventure Squad burst in.

45

46

Whoopsie! Turns out their oh-so-reliable source of information skipped out on them.

Just as we were realizing that she betrayed them, Assassin’s Creed jumped into action, in MOUNT WEATHER. Dun dun dunnnnnnnn

Bellamy’s doomed Girlfriend was riffling through the Mountain King’s office, hoping he wrote down the launch codes in a diary marked DANTE’S SLAM POETRY, when Ninja Assassin snuck up on her and stabbed her like she was attending the Red Wedding.

47

48

This lady lasted 3 episodes. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAILOVETHISSHOW! Well done to the commenters who insisted she would not last the season. She did prove herself a badass, though. If I had approximately one minute left to live, my one and only thought would be how to obtain some ice cream, because if I’m going to die, you can bet it’ll be with the taste of mint chocolate. Not Bellamy’s lady! Nope, she used her last ounce of life to drag herself to the walkie and warn the others. Way to go… you.

Speaking of unexpected heroics, is Sinclair awesome? When did that happen? He chased after Darth Maul and didn’t die! Well… yes, he was saved by Raven, but still! Their efforts were for naught because Bellemy’s Dead Girlfriend was far too dead to enter the codes.

49

Someone please tell me the brand of walkie these people are using, because the signal reached Bellamy at the summit, informing everyone that Mountain Mansion had been exploded.

50

51

Bellamy just found out his girlfriend died, so obviously his first thought was whether or not Clarke was coming back. But she’s not! She’s staying with Lexa and the ‘war council’, to make sure Lexa ‘keeps her word’.

52

53

54

KISS! KISS! KISS!

Lexa told Clarke she tattooed #TeamClarke on her heart, and Clarke was like, “intense, but okay.”

THEN…

55

It’s Emerson! Emerson is working for the Ice Queen! Seems like he has it in for Clarke. I can’t really blame him. Remember that time she made him run for 8 hours through a forest. Yuck. Exercise is so gross. Oh, and I guess she killed everyone he’s ever met. There’s that, too.

WELL YOU GUYS. That was episode three. EPISODE THREE. Have you gotten used to the breakneck speed with which this show throws shit on the fan? I think this episode likely would have been some sort of midseason finale on some other shows. But nope! Not The 100! This season is just getting warmed up!

Next week is primed for some political intrigue, a possible attack on the Ark, some emotional backlash, and best of all, more sexual tension! (Do you think Abby will have to disinfect Kane’s brand mark a few times? One can only hope!)

SOME STUFF

  • “It’s easier to hate me than to hate yourself.” – “Oh, I can do both.” Awwwww SHIT!

 

  • What do you think the Beautiful Creepster and Emori are up to? Has she told him which ninja turtle is her dad? It’s Raphael, right? It’s totally Raphael.

 

  • I was loving the mentor relationship Sinclair was having with Raven. Seriously guys… is he awesome now?

 

  • Is Jasper still crying to Adele, or has he moved on to Taylor Swift?

 

  • Clarke being reunited with her mom was cool, but I think the reunion that made all our hearts glow was Indra and Octavia. AMMIRIGHT?

 

  • For those of you who don’t know what Dream Phone is, get educated.

 

  • Does anyone else sometimes miss Lexa’s batman mask?

 

  • “I never meant to turn you into this.” – CHILLS.

 

  • Kane was branded! What do you think the symbol is? Mickey Mouse ears? A hashtag? A heart? The @ symbol?

 

  • Watching the countdown of the self destruct reflected in the eye of Bellemy’s Dead Girlfriend… *slow clap*

 

  • If you had one minute to live, what ice cream flavour would you want?

    Okay, not to bring up another show that, while I like it a lot (suprisingly) it doesn’t quite have the gravitas of this show, but like with Quantico’s midseason finale (spoiler, I guess?) where I am doing an internal head count of where people were at the time of the explosion. Like,

    Is Jasper still weeping in the painting room?

    Did Monty just find his mom to lose his mom?

    Is Monty with the Adventure Squad? He seems to have adopted Bellamy as his older brother, but I don’t actually remember him with them. Maybe he dragged Jasper back to Arkadia.

    What about a random such as Miller? I understand that his boyfriend might be with the Farmville people, there had to be people from Arkadia who wandered over.

    – I knew Bellamy’s girlfriend would die the moment they introduced her. It’s really too bad that they didn’t give what looked like a pretty awesome character more screen time so that her death would be even more meaningful in the end.
    – Good point about the walkie talkies. I thought that the tower might be the top floors of the empire state building with the entire building located underground (since apparently the fans were told that Polis isn’t in Annapolis and that we’d never guess where the location or the building), but unless those walkie talkies are some sort of special satellite military grade miracles… it seems like Polis would have to be very close to TonDC.
    – Sexy fun times emotions aside, I think that Lexa might believe that Clarke is her successor. Keep in mind that succession isn’t a vote — it’s a calling. Many of the scenes involve Lexa advising Clarke of her great leadership abilities and/or testing and training Clarke.
    – I agree with the idea that Bellamy is ticked off by Clarke abandoning her people (and him) after he has tried to save her twice. I also think that Bellamy is angry because they were a leadership team and they made the decision to kill everyone at Mount Weather together. Who knows if he has even had a chance to grieve properly his actions — especially since he, unlike Clarke, actually saw the faces of the young children they killed (i.e. when he and Maya were sneaking through the corridors). Not only that… but they always helped each other make better leadership decisions. They are very similar to the Kane and Abby leadership/relationship in that regard.
    – I hope I wasn’t the only one wondering why someone didn’t step forward and say, “You know. Clarke isn’t the only Wanheda. Bellamy had his hand on the lever too.” Of course, since it was only Clarke, Bellamy and Monty in that room… maybe this is a “big secret reveal” coming down the line??? Right now, everyone thinks that Clarke made the decision all on her own. But, she hesitated until Bellamy helped her.
    – The whole destruction of Mount Weather was an “off” turn of events for many reasons… 1. They didn’t establish where Jasper was located at the time. If not for the trailers, we’d all think he was dead too. Maybe they should have left him out of the trailers to create suspense? 2. Moving the artwork out of Mount Weather makes sense now (it really didn’t make all that much sense to me at the time), but think of how much was destroyed. On one hand, it was symbolic of the final destruction of a large part of the “old world,” but it’s a sad turn of events. 3. The destruction was too small scale for a military installation. That blast should have taken out that door and everything in a large area around it. Yet, Raven and Sinclair were almost right on top of the blast and lived. 4. The moment they moved Farm Station in, I realized that the place would be destroyed. If they wanted to kill everyone off from that station, they really should have come up with a better plot. Then again, I get the symbolism there as well: The Farm Station survivors were willing to do anything to survive as well. They were also much like the people of MW in their attitudes about grounders. Another heavy handed symbolic act by the show’s creatives.
    – I was also impressed with Indra’s smile and her talking to Octavia. It was a nice change from Indra always seeming angry and so dead set in her ways.
    – Am I the only one who, ignoring the age difference, really wants Octavia and Nyko to be a couple? I’m kind of tired of the Lincoln/Octavia relationship (although I don’t know how much that was influenced by the announcement that the actor who plays Lincoln was picked up for another show, which may or may not take him off the 100). I just think that there were tiny hints at that possibility back when Nyko was first introduced and when the grounder army was heading to then Camp Jaha back when they thought Lincoln was dead.

    The first thing I thought of when it blew up was Monty’s mom is there! The Ice Nation Grounders killed his father and now they’ve possibly killed his mother. I imagine this will cause more tension between Monty and Jasper. I bet Jasper will consider this karma. That s*** is going to hit the fan with those too.

    First, I I know it’s uncouth but I laughed so hard when Bellamy’s girlfriend got stabbed. That said, I’m very happy she gave the warning that sent Raven waddling out of the Mountain before the explosion. Pike looked sad that all the Farmville people got exploded (except Monty’s mom?). But Bellamy had no reaction to the news AT ALL! He and his girl were the only couple who received a negative score during the sexual tension competition, so good riddance. And he better not go all Jasper on us next epi because that would not ring true.

    I don’t know why Lexa and Clarke didn’t go down after the bow down but they seem to be headed down the relationship path. And then later Bellamy can join them to finally fulfill my enduring fantasy #Team Clexamy.

    Jason was right when he hyped this episode. EVERYONE WAS RIGHT WHEN THEY HYPED. SO MUCH HYPE. And I was not disappointed.

    Some (incoherent) thoughts while watching, in no particular order:
    -INDRA IS SMILING. Holy shite, what even is going to happen in this episode? My heart won’t be able to deal with this

    -Oh Gina (Bellamy’s now dead gf). I mean I knew you were going to die but I was hoping you were going to survive for at least half this season. But alas, it was not meant to be. And also, should we be a little bit concerned that Bellamy had basically no reaction to hearing that Gina died? He did know she was there in the Mountain, right?

    – When Clarke held the knife to Lexa’s throat, I kept screaming (inside my head of cos, cos even I’m not that crazy) that their faces were too close. Might just as well kiss and make out. up. or however the phrase goes. And if you’re trying to kill some one, try to keep your eyes off their lips and actually focus on your task
    It’s a good thing I was alone while watching this because I was constantly bursting out into creepy giggles. And wiggling my eyebrows in a youknowyouwannakisseachother kinda way. This was during Kane and Abby’s and Lexa and Clarke’s scenes FYI.

    – Clarke may be bowing to Lexa now but let’s be real, Clarke’s the top here.
    Nvm, Lexa just bowed to Clarke. Really glad I was alone while I was watching this part, because seriously it’s not my fault if I keep making weird faces at my screen when these two look like that and act like that. But really, that was like a wedding. Or as close as to a wedding as someone could get. How much of it was like a wedding? Is it just me? Anyone?

    Also, quick question Toni, how do you even come up with all these puns?

    “But really, that was like a wedding. Or as close as to a wedding as someone could get. How much of it was like a wedding? Is it just me? Anyone?”

    Nope, it’s not just you. I think it felt that way to most people, including me. Or at least when Lexa knelt down in front of Clarke. It was such a clear declaration of devotion to Clarke that I could hardly believe it. I think that moment was as powerful in forming a bond between those two as Lexa’s betrayal at Mt. Weather was in breaking the bond they used to have. Maybe even more powerful, since it felt so permanent.

    When it happened, Twitter exploded with tweets and retweets and retweeting retweets, everyone climbing all over each other in ecstatic joy. Like a horde of puppies on a sugar high.

    They’re still not officially married, according to Kim Shumway(one of the writers on the show), but that mutual swearing of fealty seems close enough, to me. That’s enough of a “til death do we part” moment to keep me going up to like, Season 5.

    zayra47 Feb 07, 2016
    Of course, twitter is going to explode. As soon as I saw that kneeling scene, (well the whole Lexa kicking that Ice nation dude out of the tower was awesome twoo) I thought to myself “My god, everyone is going to go bat-shit crazy after seeing this” And they did.
    And really, that was such a powerful moment. I think it’s absolutely fascinating that instead of kisses or sex scenes, it’s these kind of intimate gestures that somehow becomes so much… More… (honestly I can’t think of a word or anything to complete this sentence, but you get it, right?)
    I mean, back in S2, it was the gorilla episode and Clarke backing Lexa into the table that had my attention more than the kiss. I wouldn’t mind seeing a sex scene tho 😉

It’s nearly impossible to see, but if you hit pause when it’s on the right part of that EXACT second , you will be able to detect a twinge of a glimmer of a faint awareness that his girlfriend has been murdered flitting across Bellamy’s face!

    In her twitter feed, Kim S. the 100 writer (who writes the eps where Clexa does their power girl thing) said we’d see a very different Lexa in S3. Basically S3 Lexa is a woman of contrition who will be trying to earn her way back into Clarke’s trust and SkaiKru’s good graces. Her submission to Clarke in that private scene was apparently the first step. But of course, JRottenberg had to throw a monkey wrench into that shipper’s engine by introducing Pike.

    Who—after the blood for blood cleansing of the Mountain with 99% of Farm station’s blood–is now 100% anti grounder Nazi. And who will be most likely the one factor driving a wedge between Clarke and Bellamy. I suspect Pike will convince Bellamy to break Lexa’s coalition and strike out on their on. Except I believe SkaiKru will end up being slaughtered by the Ice Nation (and other grounder clans who now appear to be on Ice Queen’s side).

    Also I suspect that scene we saw in S3 trailer appears Pike’s coup results in him and his supporters taking control of Arcadia. There is a shot where Kane and the Kabby faction appear to be locked up. So going into mid season, I say it’s Team Kabby wanting the 13th grounder tribe alliance, but Pike’s faction want to remain that doomed 13th space station. So there really isn’t a reason for Lexa to betray Clarke again (which is why she insisted publicly that SkaiKru become her own people). Lexa can’t afford to lose her WMD (aka WanHeda) because she knows her army can’t take on the Ice Nation which is at her door. So Lexa needs the SkaiKru and to get that, she needs Clarke. So I think Lexa will do everything in her power this season to help protect Clarke and her people to achieve that goal.

    But the qQuestion is, will Jason R. allow Lexa to live long enough to help Clarke regain leadership of SkaiKru?

    Finally Clexa is back on the sea! If that was the wedding ceremony – can we start next episode from the wedding night? #KissKissKiss

    Abby and Kane should get a room ASAP. They’re risking spontaneous combustion.

    Raven tried to commit suicide. Abby should really fix her leg before it will be too late.

    So Sky People are officially Grounders now right?

    Also Octavia and Indra are working together again!

    I am glad I’m not the only one yelling “Kiss already” whenever the hot mess (pun intended) that is AbbyandKane is on screen.

    I could hear the Clexa fans exploding when Lexa kneeled, but, personally, I’m not convinced. I get that Clarke is her weakness, but we’ve seen her ignore several promises (both Roan and the alliance) already, so fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice… Yeah, not gonna let that happen.

    I got the feeling Bellamy won’t be chill very soon.
    It’s a pity for Dead Girlfriend, she was extra nice for a character without a name (okay, Raven said it’s Gina, but I loled when I realized we haven’t heard Bellamy, her boyfriend, say it once). I’m just happy Niylah (oh, whatever, you know who I mean))) is alive.

    Best reunion – Indra and Kane. A smile!!!
    Loved the episode,loved the review, can’t wait for the next one. The 100 keeps getting better and better!

    Gina wasn’t that bad. But she wasn’t the great either. She just was. Her inclusion in this season appears to have been for the sole purpose of getting Bellamy to a place in which he’ll be anti-Grounder. Introducing characters and killing them off without developing them just so their deaths can affect other, more important characters is always questionable writing.

    agreed. But I’m so relived that JR didn’t think to cull Niylah though. I really love her character. And we never did find out (thorugh Clarke’s inquiry) where she got that sky teen bracelet. I’ve been assuming she got it from grounders who scavenged the sky teen drop ship (the way Niko’s small village scavenged the drop ship for discarded Arker jackets which Flynn later found). My guess is a TreeKru scavenger picked it up, thought it was metallic jewelry of some sort, and so traded it to Nyliah for other goods etc. Regardless, I’m glad she didn’t lose her hand — or her life. Because good health is so hard to find on this show!

    It was weak but there are plenty of other well developed main characters and a fair few side characters who pop up from time to time.why did she specifically need to be developed…As soon as she was introduced everyone knew there was 2 options..
    1.She dies
    2.She was going to be part of a tedious faux triangle with Clarke

    3.She and Bellamy live a normal grounded life…(Yet to ever happen on Tv, so does not count as an option.)

    What i found funny was that Bellamy seemed more affected by Clark staying in Polis than Gina’s death.

    At SDCC, JR hinted that this wasn’t as much a romantic sense of disappointment, as much as resentment of Clarke’s continuing abandonment. Especially after what Bellamy had been through to rescue Clarke not once but twice now (first with Roan and then Lexa’s summit). And some of his resentment likely stemmed from his need to displace his anger at being played. And for being so damned naive to believe Echo–a person whom he barely knew. Because in trying to warn/rescue the SkaiKru in Polis, he (and Pike) left the Mt. completely unprotected. So pretty sure Bellamy is feeling (in a very stoic way as was projected) a lot of guilty remorse for abandoning all those young children to their deaths.

    I agree completely..Which is why the anti grounder Bellamy arc coming up is understandable.

    I agree. The writing for Bellamy in this episode was kind of just… Well, I didn’t like it. And Bellamy is my favorite character, so I tend to forgive flaws around him. But oh god.

    I’m glad that I wasn’t the only yelling, “KISS!” at my screen.

    I also loved that after Lexa announced the leader of the Skykru should be marked forever, Abby glanced at the red hot brand and was like, “It should be you, Kane.” Classic Abby.

    I did figure out that Bellamy and them were being setup because 1. The way his girlfriend looked at him when he was like, “I need to be with Clarke…I mean at the summit.” 2. Because of the way he and his girlfriend parted ways with the whole don’t be a hero thing, classic sign that one of them’s going to die. 3. That assassin was taking way too long to be at the summit. 4. Emori was being vague and distant with Bellamy as she helped. Though, I like to think she wanted Bellamy out of harm’s way.

    And I just can’t stay mad at Lexa. She’s too #TeamClarke to stay mad at. That tension was awesome. Honestly, I’m so torn about who I want Clarke to be with. Lexa or Bellamy. Both are such brilliant, badass, and intelligent characters that I think either way, it’s a win for Clarke. Though, there better be some more Bellamy-Clarke scenes in the near future. The dude obviously needs her. He’s not having a good week. And when he finally was with her, Clarke was like, “Well, see ya.”

    Maybe you should sit down and have a chat or something with him, Clarke? Like, make sure he’s doing okay before something crazy happens, like he gets super down on himself and then listens to Pike and reverts back to his emo season 1 episode 1 self? Just a thought Clarke. I mean it’s not like he helped you pull the trigger on Mount Weather or anything…or got stabbed in the leg…or lost his girlfriend and his people from the Ark at the same time…or keeps losing his best friends to crazy town…or keeps losing his co-leader who he loves and trusts and needs (that’s you, Clarke). Just saying.

    Maybe when Bellamy starts to revert to his old self, Octavia will track down Clarke and be like, “WTF, fix him, dumbass.” That would actually be nice, to see Octavia and Clarke team up to rescue/fix Bellamy.

    I’m all for Bellarke. Ya know, with the 100, there could by some sort of polyamorous relationship, Bellarkexa?
    I agree, Bellamy and Clarke need some face to face alone time. But they may be saving the ‘reveal’ where Bellamy and Clarke have a moment kinda like Clarke and Lex had this episode, for a much later episode. I love/hate that.
    I don’t want to make the series about the love-ship thing, but I’m really drawn to the romance. *sigh*

    It’s because it was in private that it was even more significant. It wasn’t a symbolic or political gesture in public like Wanheda’s bow was meant to be. It was her oath as Lexa, the person, to Clarke. It was the biggest show of respect and promise she could make, because as we heard, the Commander bows to no one!

    Jason and others like Jo who were allowed to preview at least up to ep3 also indicated this as well. There was a tweet on JR’s feed (may have been by Jo) who basically said Lexa would do something she has NEVER done before. So if this wasn’t the personal, intimate pledge she gave Clarke in that scene, then it may happen later on at the Ice Queen’s summit. I’m thinking of that scene were Queen Nia is on that stage with the 12 grounder hedas and that empty 13th seat. Lexa & Roan are apparently dueling in the foreground. And Clarke is standing off to the side at the immediate lower right of the screen. If you look at the clan flags above each of the chairs, you’ll notice the Arker’s symbol above the empty chair. Lexa (TreKru) and Roan’s are on the ground on either side of the stage. And there are 2 grounders watching them on the middle left of the screen. These are clearly their seconds.

    “– “It’s easier to hate me than to hate yourself.” – “Oh, I can do both.” Awwwww SHIT!”

    Is it just me, or did Lexa’s expression at this remark seem like she was internally thinking, “Nice one,” like she appreciated the snark as much as we did?

    “– If you had one minute to live, what ice cream flavour would you want?”

    Rocky Road. What other kind is there?

    I know this sounds incredibly “ClexaOMGClexa,” but looking back on it, it seems like most of this episode revolved around how awesome Lexa thinks Clarke is.

    When Lexa got down on her knees and swore fealty to Clarke– who had already sworn allegiance to Lexa– I have to admit, my brain pretty much exploded. It took over an hour for me to put the pieces back together so I could think coherently again. I mean, Mt. Weather getting blown up was a awfully big surprise; I was not expecting that at all, and when it happened I assumed that that was the biggest moment of the episode.

    But then they topped that moment with Lexa kneeling to Clarke and swearing fealty to her. Fealty is an oath of service, it’s basically someone saying to the other person, “I acknowledge that you are my Lord (or my Lady) and I will serve your needs faithfully, as if they were my own.” And given that they both swore these oaths I’d guess they’re now on completely even footing, at least between themselves.

    Clarke and Lexa are both devoted to their people. Each of them swearing to put the needs of the other person’s people above their own is, for them, basically like saying, “I devote my life to whatever you choose to devote your life to.” Or maybe it’s the same as each of them telling the other, “I devote my life to you and yours.”

    That may be about as close to a marriage proposal as Lexa can manage. She got the positions right, at least.

    Regardless, after everything Lexa did and said to Clarke in 3×03, I think it’s obvious at this point that Lexa is in love with Clarke Griffin. And I’m guessing Clarke can see it now, too.

    Yes, and that hand holding gesture after Clarke help her get up… omfg, the feels… o0

    I’m guessing Clarke can see it now, too.

    I hope she does more than just “sees” it… I think she couldn’t kill her because she has feelings for Lexa.

    Unfortunately, their reunion more then likely means Lexa won’t make it to the end of the season. Brace yourself. 😦

    I know right? 😦 JR is going to totally murder my beautiful girl. I’d rather Kim S save Lexa one final time by letting Lexa redeem herself by protecting Clarke’s people from the Ice Nation. After all, the whole point of that public ceremony was to declare SkaiKru Lexa’s people. So Lexa is BOUND BY OATH to protect the Arkers. But once this happens—and they find a way to defeat or weaken the Ice Nation–then I could see Jason R. making Lexa sacrificing herself for Clarke. i.e. take a spear/knife to the chest that was meant for Wanheda, or being overly protective of her in battle which would make Lexa vulnerable to attack etc.

    NOOOooooo!! I refuse to believe that!

    I actually have this wild-ass theory that the writers are going to go with something more unexpected, and Lexa is gonna be fine, but Clarke is going to die, or be some version of dead, except that her mind will still be alive in the City of Light. And that’s how Season 3 will end. Clarke’s body in a coma, maybe, on life support, and her mind trapped inside the CoL so that people have to go there to be with her.

    And maybe Season 4 will start with Lexa’s empire falling apart because she spends most of the day, every day, in the CoL so she can be with Clarke.

    Clexa trash, I know. Alas. I don’t think I was quite so bad about the Clexa-shipping until Lexa got down on her knees and swore her vow to Clarke, but now I’m a goner.

    This is what terrifies me because IMDb does NOT explicitly list ADC in ANY of the EPs after EP4 (the fight scene at that summit)
    http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0493997/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t20

    http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0493997/filmoseries#tt2661044

    notice how they only list the S2 and S3 eps ADC appears in, compared to other guest stars like Indra. Indra (and the Ice Queen) show up as late as ep13. But not Lexa??? Also all the other main guest stars (Rich Harmon, Jasper, Monty, Kabby, even Lincoln) show up in EP16. And yes, Commander bOinKeroneous also show up at the end S3. Which we know has to happen given what JR said about the sci fi arc that occurs later in the season. Which leads me to believe that Lexa will die at end EP4 because based on the eps they are scheduled to appear for rest of the season, it isn’t going to be:
    Lincoln, Jasper, Monty, Raven, Octavia, Kabby, Bellamy

    And Emerson the Mt. Monster last appears in ep 10 here:
    http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0495702/filmoseries#tt2661044

    Final hint Lexa may die in ep 4: there’s that scene where Titus is seen pulling an extremely distraught, hysterical Clarke away from someone/something on the ground/floor. Titus character is set so far to have appeared in 2 eps for S3 which are likely eps 3 & upcoming 4. I’m just hoping that by omitting the guest actors/actresses from future eps, that this could mean the char is in hibernation. So they could focus on grounder culture and WTF will be going down with the rift between the Pike/Bellamy and Kabby-grounder friendly factions at Arcadia. If they do this and leave my precious ADC/Lexa alone, then I’d be the happiest little clam in the world……
