The 100 “Watch the Thrones” Photo Recap – Staff Meetings (3.4)

WHOOOOOBOY, you guys. My body is upset, and also so happy? Man, bodies are weird. So full of mysterious fluids that excrete into places and cause extreme anxiety that make you rock back and forth while mumbling, “don’t kill Lexa, don’t kill Lexa, dear Zeus, please, don’t kill Lexa.” Then those fluids do other stuff in your brain that gets you SO FRUSTRATED at characters who know approximately as much as Jon Snow.

Pike’s ascent to power was inevitable. Kane is just too good at his job for the likes of The 100. Conflict needs to happen, and the only other character who would believably stir shit up is off in some sweat lodge living in his virtual reality mind-palace, and going door-to-door. So, the show had to introduce a character that had all of Jaha’s irrational bigoted problem solving skills, without all of his unlikability. Because let’s face it, as frustrating as Pike’s plotline is, he’s still relatable as shit. Jaha! Take notes!

Now I hope you have your barbecue sauce ready, because I have some beef. While Pike’s throughline is 100% believable, Bellamy’s move to Dickville is even quicker than Finn’s voyage to Bonkerton.

Look, I get it. Television programs need conflict, otherwise tonight’s episode would have been a full hour of Lexa applying her batman mask (I WOULD WATCH THAT). And I know that on the page, this might have seemed like the answer. But the execution felt rushed and forced, and also I AM SO SORRY BECAUSE I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH but I can’t help how I feel. My God. This is giving me heartburn, and it is NOT the seventeen pounds of chicken wings I just ate, so get off my back, 9 out of 10 doctors!

Also giving me heartburn? The lack of photo recapping going on here. Who do I think I am? LET’S DO THIS.

Watch The Throne began with another staff meeting, where Lexa read all the slips of paper from the employee suggestion box.

This lady’s shade is everything I’ve ever wanted. Insert her attitude into every single thing I watch, please.

This scene was very tense, and I definitely thought someone was going to either run someone through, or detonate a bomb, or at least pull someone’s hair. Basically, Elsa was all, “you’re the worst and we want you to politely vacate,” and Lexa was all, “nuh uh.” So they decided to instead have a duel to the death, because Grounders. I LOVED that our heroine basically sat there the entire scene all, “what does a girl have to do to get some popcorn up in here?”

That is not sarcasm. It is a testament to this beautiful show that we can spend an hour with our star somewhat sidelined, and still have intense chest pains throughout.

Back at Arkadia, a similar kind of staff meeting was taking place.

Yikes with this guy. Lots of fear mongering being thrown around. Pike’s stance was basically, “all Grounders are bad and we should kill them all, and maybe also their pets.” Kane and Abby were all, “sheesh, relax.” Then they didn’t make out, and my heart was like, “patience, Toni.”

Then a sad Bellamy came in to resign because he blamed himself for Mount Weather, and all of our hearts melted into gelatinous goop-puddles on our carpets.

12

13

Okay, okay, I know, he was really sad, and this made my chest ache, and Bob Morley did a great job. BUT, in Bellamy’s own words, he’s more upset that it’s his fault she died than the fact that she’s actually dead. Poor Bellamy’s Dead Plot Device.

Then Jasper used the arrival of Niko and some sick Grounders as a distraction to scamper off to brood and commune with Adele in the forest, but Monty followed because within his chest beats the heart of a true hero. Oh, and a guard threw some sass to Octavia about being a Grounder Pounder.

14

Emo Octavia, never, ever change.

Back at Leadership Camp, Clarke tried to talk Lexa out of the whole “fight to the death” situation.

15

16

17

18

Lexa has GOT THIS, Clarke! Just go relax. Read a book. Learn how to put your hair up in a ponytail or something.

Then we had a typical mom and son scene, where Roan and the Ice Queen talked about typical mom and son stuff.

19

20

21

22

23

It was subtle, but I got the sense that maybe their relationship isn’t the greatest. Then Clarke showed up and was like, “I know I didn’t go to your slumber party last week, but now I want you to come to mine.” And Roan was all, “I’m listennnnnnning.”

Back at Ark Camp, a memorial was being held for all the people who died at OH MY HOLY HEART IS THAT MILLER’S BOYFRIEND?????

24

THIS EPISODE IS A WIN. I don’t even remember what beef I had about it. Or was it pork? Who even cares anymore because Miller’s boyfriend is no longer just a casual mention. He had lines! Never die, Miller’s boyfriend. Never. Die.

25

26

Some guards busted in to report that Indra was in the forest practicing being awesome, and some people didn’t take that too well. Pike started pontificating like a donkey’s behind, and it resulted in someone throwing a rock at Lincoln!

27

Welcome, Emo Lincoln. Octavia will be very pleased.

It was said last season, too, so I suppose “I get knocked down, I get up again” is a Grounder phrase, which is very unfortunate.

28

29

30

31

32

Oh Jasper.

Then we got a scene where Emo Octavia and Emo Lincoln emo-ed at each other.

THEN Clarke paid a visit to Elsa.

40

Oh Clarke! You sexy little gremlin! She almost had the Queen, if it hadn’t been for her assistant. Daughter? I don’t know. Regardless, this was a terrible plan. Good thing it didn’t work! The Ice Queen cut her daughter-assistant and she bled black goop all over Clarke’s face.

Man, the ice nation is RUDE!

41

42

43

Meanwhile, back at Ark Camp, Pike was using Bellamy’s guilt about Mount Weather to manipulate him into providing his band of murderous with guns.

44

45

46

47

I don’t buy it, and here’s why: Bellamy ain’t no fool. Yes, he’s upset because Bellamy’s Dead Girlfriend died last week. Buuuuuuuut, as he so aptly pointed out, he has always done what’s right for his people, and he HAS to know this is not it. Pike and the others have a bit of an excuse (narratively, that is, not morally). They have only known violent, horrible, rude grounders. For all they know, Indra and her army ARE there to kill them. But Bellamy knows better. Bellamy has played catch with Indra. He shoots hoops with Lincoln every Thursday afternoon. He’s heard Clarke tell tales of Anya’s valour. Sure, Lexa left them all to die that one time, but every relationship has its ups and downs!

He also knows that shooting up Indra and her army will incite a war. Oh, oh, AND he’s been buddying up to Kane for the past three months. Is he going to turn on him in a day? Nope. OH OH OH, AAAAAAND Clarke is still in Polis. If they kill Indra’s army, surely he has to figure Lexa would kill Clarke.

Nuh-uh. I don’t care how cool Bellamy’s Dead Girlfriend was. Homey don’t play that.

Anyway. Let’s all forget about that because then the coolest badassery of the episode graced our TV scenes.

SLOW EFFING CLAP.

This fight scene was so damn awesome. The spear throwing, and the Queen dying, and just everything. Everyone involved in this deserves so much ice cream. I hope you are ALL eating ice cream right now. If you’re not, go get some. Calories don’t count when you’re this cool. Just wowzers.

Meanwhile…

56

57

When this fun-filled hunting party was shut down by Lincoln, then Kane and Abby, I was like, THANK HERA, because this whole thing would have made Bellamy look reaaaaaaally dumb.

Sigh. Anyway. Someone suggested Pike run for office, and they all started chanting his name, and I actually threw up my seventeen pounds of wings.

Speaking of things that make my tummy hurt, Jasper and Monty had a fight that made me remember their adorable way to high five from season 1, which made my emotions ache. Turns out Jasper stole Finn’s ashes to scatter at Mount Weather, which is just one in a long line of terrrrrrrrrrrrrrible decisions this episode!

58

59

60

61

62

63

64

65

In a disgusting and sad twist, Jasper tripped and spilled Finn’s ashes. *frown*

Then, in a SEXY twist, Lexa showed up at Clarke’s door. QUESTION – Where are these girls getting these very luxurious nightgowns??? I live in a non-post-apocalyptic modern world and still basically wear a burlap sack to bed.

66

67

Lexa was all, “thanks babe,” and Clarke was like, “ain’t no thang,” and then they also didn’t make out and my heart was like, “patience, Toni.”

Then we got to see all hope of peace crumble away as Pike was voted Chancellor.

68

69

70

71

Well shit, indeed.

Now Pike and his gang, including our beloved Bellamy, are on their way to cause some shit with Indra and her army. If Indra is killed because of this, Pike, I swear I’ll… WRITE ABOUT IT VERY SNARKILY!

Well, what did you guys think? Judging by the amount of people already tweeting at me, I’d say everyone is pretty riled up. Which, of course, is what great TV shows are supposed to do. It would be a pretty bad sign if the credits rolled and we all just went back to our candy crush and our knitting and didn’t think about it again until next week.

So, good job, show!

SOME STUFF

  • Do you think the fact that Pike is headed out to kill Indra is going to hurt their romance? I doubt it. Indra loves that shit. #PindraForever

 

  • A lot of emphasis is being put on Aiden, the kickass little dude who may someday be Lexa’s successor. I thought at first he might be a little shit, and try to kill Lexa to have the throne or something, but the adorable smile he gave her when she killed Vanilla Ice melted my cold heart.

 

  • “I’m the Commander. No one fights for me.”

 

  • Someone saying “mark my words” makes me instantly NOT listen to anything they say after that. Pike is a thousand times more relatable and likable than Jaha, but… that’s strike one, buster. Speaking of… “Anger is our policy”. This episode was very timely. Very timely indeed. (Make sure to vote, Americans!)

 

  • Monty’s mom is bloodthirsty. Who knew!

 

  • The 100 gets so much right, and that includes letting their characters get things wrong. Clarke is our hero, but she almost effed up everything for Lexa this episode by interfering. It was cool to see the things work out without Clarke’s help.

 

  • Indra was mentioned a lot this episode, but we didn’t get to see her beautifully grumpy face. Do you think she’s off whittling a bestfriendship totem for Kane? Or maybe playing MASH?

 

  • Grounder makeup was ON POINT this week!

 

  • Who was the fight choreographer for this episode? I hope they’re eating ice cream right now!

    “– The 100 gets so much right, and that includes letting their characters get things wrong. Clarke is our hero, but she almost effed up everything for Lexa this episode by interfering. It was cool to see the things work out without Clarke’s help.”

    Pretty sure Roan stayed off his hand when he had Lexa down on the ground. If it wasn’t for Clarke talking to him earlier, I’m pretty sure he’d killed her in that moment. Instead, he let her get up and “lost” the fight. He became king and thus; not banned anymore. However, remember that he said he’d make Clarke the queen of the Ice Nation because he didn’t want to become king. I’m pretty sure the writers didn’t forget about that fact…

    MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN, this episooooode!! I agree with you on several things (honestly, WHERE does a girl get a nightgown like that? HAWT) but considering my love for Bellamy, I keep finding reasons for him to do things. It was so hard to watch him side with Pike (still, a million times better than Jaha), but I kinda get it? He’s a man of action, not consequence, Clarke thinks about consequences and she’s not there to stop him or making him see reason. I like that’s she’s not there though, so Bellamy can see what being irrational can do. And I hope he does, soon. Please.

    Thanks, I’ll be singing Chumbawamba all week.

    The most depressing fact about the writers’ sudden and almost complete inadequecy to write anything sensible for Bellamy is that Morley is 100% killing it this season. Acting-wise, Bellamy is the strongest character this season. Writing-wise, he’s bordering on season 2 Finn.

    But great recap once again 🙂

    Did anyone else hear a record scratch when Bellamy was, apparently, game to kill Indra and let Clarke suffer the consequences in the Polis? Bellamy, two episodes you were bleeding out and still running after Clarke and now you’re just going to let her die when you piss everyone off? Say your girlfriend’s full name. I’m talking first, middle, and last name and then we can talk about you joining up with Pike over these so called emotions. Otherwise, this better be a secret plot that you had laid out with Kane!! This better be some Ocean’s Twelve or Thirteen thing happening!

    Also, Abby, please, I’m begging you, for once do what Clarke would do and not, I repeat NOT, what you would do. Go to Indra, steal the guns, pull a Home Alone or Home Alone: New York! Pike’s new, you can pull out the old arsenal. He won’t know the difference. Use your sexual tension with Kane to blindside everyone. I don’t care, just don’t let Indra die!

    Any who, well done, Lexa. That was some badass maneuvering. I was borderline chanting for Lexa to do what she did, so kudos. Speaking of borderline chanting, I may or may not have shouted, “Kiss, you fools!” at my screen as Lexa and Clarke played it all coy in their luxurious nightgowns.

    P.s. Jasper, WTF! Being pissed is one thing, but, dude, Finn was the only family Raven had. You know, Raven, the goddess who was getting her bone marrow sucked from her when Mount Weather went down. Also, Clarke didn’t lose Finn the way you lost Maya, man. Maya died a hero. Clarke had to rescue Finn by killing him. Plus, I think she actually knew him longer than you knew Maya. And because you were mean to Monty, I’m gonna say it, Jasper. Maybe you should’ve considered getting your girlfriend out of there when you knew shit was about to hit the fan?

    “Homey don’t play that.” Seriously, Bellamy needs to stop being such a booger stuck to a cardboard box! At least now we all know why the season promo had a voice-over of Octavia saying, “My brother is on the wrong side of this war.”

    Is Clarke still an Ambassador now that Skaikru is trying to kill Indra? Clarke’s options are: A) Hook up with Lexa ASAP; B) Return to Arkadia and bang some sense into Bellamy before she has to Finn him; or C) Do both option A and B.

    Speaking of Finn… your captions for Jasper made cry so many tears of laughter. When he was wheezing, I was thinking, “Does he have asthma? Is Jasper going to chock to death on Finn’s ashes?” Now THAT woulda been a twist.

    I already feel sorry for Bellamy. Usually when a character does something stupid or of an asshole nature, the consequences are usually swift and drastic.
    I have already forgiven Lexa for her Betrayel as it had massive backlash for her, not just with Clarke…She literally had to fight for her life this episode because of it.
    Also Lexa is so cute cos she has absolutely no game.

    The hilarity of Monty screaming “FLOAT YOU!!” at Jasper sort of undercut the dramatic tension of that scene.

    Since “Float” basically means “fuck” can it be used as a slang term for sex too? Like, for example, would it be correct to say, “I wanna see Clarke and Lexa floating!” or “I wanted to float Lexa’s brains out when she was wearing that night gown!” ?

    Hate to break it to you ToniWatches, but neither Evanescence nor Simple Plan ( who you mentioned last week) are emo bands. One is faux-pop-punk and one is generic rock. (Or GENER-ROCK) Or wait, I get it! Are you are trying to make a subtle point that even after the apocalypse, all the kid who say they are into “emo” will STILL be a bunch of poseurs!?

    I hate Pike, I also think some fans reached panic mood too soon. I don’t think it will get better with Pike, because the damage is done. I don’t believe in a popular concept in fandoms that one character steals screentime from the other. At the end of the day, each episode has three storylines. Always. Pike storyline didn’t deliver. Simple as that. The show didn’t need a charcter like him, because they already have enough story to create drama with the characters we know from s.2.

    But, even if Pike sucks, I do feel other storylines can help to restore the balance.

    We’ve “only” seen four episodes, and the way I see it there are some great storylines under the surface: Octavia and Lincoln “search of identity”, Indra and the tragedy of her people that can lead into her potential conflict and mistrust with Lexa (why she was so weak, why she protects Sky People at all cost). Kane and Abby desperate attempts to keep peace. Raven, who comes back next week, my poor beautiful Raven. I have no doubt she is going to play a major role in ALIE storyline.
    There is of course Murphy and his adventures in Polis (he is going to Polis, right?). There is Lexa and her diffuclt (to put it middly!) political situation. There is black blood (I freaking love this idea!).
    There is of course Bellamy and Octavia relationship. Bellamy and everyone else, lol.
    So…I don’t know, it was a very frustrating episod but I think – I HOPE – the show will surive this huge misstep.

    Ok first things first I call bullshit for bellemy and his dumb ass decision making this episode I think it’s all a plan to see what the hell pike is up too because how did Lincoln and the wonder twins know that bellemy and pike were leaving camp and then his whole trust me speech also we never saw him leave Kane’s office after he handed in his jacket and remember Abby literally just said to Kane pike is now your problem, so again I call bullshit……..

    any who holy cow batman WOW seriously WOW I loved this episode so much yes I was cursing pike with so much rage the entire time but that’s never a bad thing in a to show. I’m so glad to see Clarke and Roan are not enemy’s they actively keep trying to help each other so YAYYYYYYYYYYY WOOOHOOO I SAY WOOOOOHOOOOOOO. I hope we get some more exploration into Roan as a character, why he was banished in the first place and why he was throwing SOOOOOO much shade at his mum. I can’t wait until next week and think shits going to get real very quick and it’s going to be messy.

    OK, so on “Watch the Game of Thrones” Donald Pike goes all “let’s kill everyone but the…uh…ten or twenty or however many of us are left. All the other humans must die!” Yeah, cause that worked so well the last time (because, nukes). The fight scene was awesome, especially as we didn’t have to live through another Oberyn moment, but sincerely thought Lexa was gonna go a bit more cunning and sneaky Littlefinger and pardon Roan just to marry his shapely ass, rather than shishkebab Mommy Dearest (maybe he never gave her a mug for Mother’s Day and that was what all their beef was about). Oh, and am I the only one who has hoping for Kane to just like snark at new Chancellor Killemall: “Oh, and by the way, Lexa is the Champion of All Badassery Ever, so she just won and called back Indra’s crew. But go have fun in the woods, by all means. Bring me back a squirrel.”?

    I’m also a little divided on the episode as a whole. I mean Polis was AWESOME, Lexa killing Nia was just the kind of WTF no really, did that actually happen, of course it did!-solution that this show excels at, and Clarke and Lexa continue to be golden, but I find myself not being terribly interested in the Nightblood-padawans. I mean I don’t mind them, but they are taking valuable screentime from our Arkers, who seriously could have used some more. Because I’m with you on Bellamy, this is moving too fast, dangerously close to Finn-style, and kind of goes against what we know that he knows. And skipping the election is in line with the breakneck pace everything moves with on this show, but in this case I think it took away the chance for characters to react and interact, thereby crippling the potentially interesting conflict between Arkers and Farmers, which goes over lines of family, loyalty and love, ripe with dramatic potential. Really hope we get to see more of that played out. I actually liked Monty and Jaspers heartbreaking fight a lot, because it was so rooted in the characters and their history, surprisingly it was one of my favorite stories in the episode.

    Also, no Raven. Man I MISSED Raven. Why wasn’t she at the memorial? Second episode that she’s not in, and that worries me. Does she not have a story arc this season? And, to top it of, no Murphy. I seriously need my Beautiful Creepster back on my TV-screen and in my life.

    On the whole, I would like a breather, with intense focus on established character relations next week please. Blake siblings fighting! Murphy and Emori flirting! Monty and his mom having a super-heavy conversation about what really happened with his dad! (We all agree the hero-story was not the full truth, right?) Raven talking to LITERARY ANYONE!! Miller and his boyfriend having brunch!

    I still adore you show, but we can’t lose focus on our beloved characters just because there is a civil war kinda waiting to happen.

    As for your recap, great as always! Clarke especially was on point, and an honorable mention to Jasper’s well timed Adele lyrics (never stop!) as well as “does the cold bother you now, bitch?”
    But!
    Top Toni of the week goes to;

    Please please show, give them enough screen time to make Boyfriend into a character and let them have a relationship! If they have one inside joke and approximately seventeen seconds of happiness (before everything inevitably goes to hell) i can die happy.

    “If they kill Indra’s army, surely he has to figure Lexa would kill Clarke.” There’s no way Lexa would kill Clarke. She’d kill Bellamy LOL.

    I agree that Lexa wouldn’t kill Clark but Bellamy doesn’t know that. He doesn’t know anything about Clark and Lexa’s relationship and no way of knowing that Lexa wouldn’t do that.
    Since he is so convinced that all grounders are evil than it makes perfect sense that he would (or at least should) think that Lexa will kill Clark.
    So he either doesn’t care or he didn’t think i trough either way his actions make him no better then Lexa, since he too left Clark in danger for his his own agenda.
    At least Lexa left her outside of Mount Weather Bellamy turned his back on her while she is living next door to the person Bellamy believes is evil and as such perfectly capable of killing Clark in retaliation to what Bellamy and Pike did or will do.

    1) I can’t see the pictures
    2) Jasper looks like he’s about to go into the Matrix
    3) Pike totally reminds me of Donald Trump: He’s super popular as a result of a desperate segment of the population and he’s against living in harmony with certain groups

    I am seriously conflicted about this episode. I loved everything with Clarke and Lexa, but I hated everything with Bellamy and Pike. Seeing more of Jasper acting like a colossal douche didn’t help much, either.

    Knowing what’s about to happen– or maybe it’s happening between episodes– with the Arkers killing Indra’s people, makes it harder for me to enjoy this episode than the episode really deserves. 3×04 ended with Pike’s people heading out to slaughter Indra’s people, and that’s the feeling we’re left with after the episode. So it’s hard for me to feel as much love for all of the great parts of this episode as those parts deserve.

    Mostly, 3×04 left me feeling frustrated and angry at the Sky People, and kind of wanting Clarke to leave Pike’s people to whatever fate their assholishness has brought upon them. I want Clarke to go back to Arkadia, tell everyone how stupid they were, gather up everyone who DIDN’T vote for that asshat Pike, and take them back to Polis to live happily ever after with the Grounders. Leave Pike and his supporters to become the 13th Station, as they so clearly want to be. Aggressive isolationist douchebags do sort of bring it on themselves.

    Somehow I doubt Clarke will do that, though. She’ll end up trying to fix the ungodly mess that Pike and Bellamy(dammit, Bellamy) have made of all of her and Kane’s hard work with the Grounders. But, I mean, slaughtering 300 of Indra’s people? People who were only there to protect Arkadia in the first place? How can they fix that? That seems sort of like a permanent level of fucked. They’d have an easier time convincing Jasper to stop being a douche.

    Yeah, the fact that Pike will slaughter Indra’s army, which is there to protect them from the ice nation makes me crazy!!!

    I feel like I’m gonna be at least low-key pissed about this until I see 3×05. And maybe after I see 3×05.

    On the other hand, I’m remembering that 2×05 was when Finn killed those 18 villagers. We didn’t even meet Lexa for the first time until 2×06. A lot happened in S2 after Finn killed those people; in fact, one could argue that S2 didn’t even get really great until after that, and partly because of what Finn did.

    So, I still have faith that S3 is going to turn out to be amazing– but the next episode also still seems like it’s gonna be soul-crushing. And I’m starting to get really worried that Lincoln is going to die this season.

    She’ll probably stop wearing Grounder makeup and just tattoo her whole face in black.

    Completely agree with everything you said. If this were another show, I’d be like, “It won’t be that bad, there’s no way they’ll gothere.” But this is the show that killed an adorable father season 1.

    Well, there’s a slight chance those 300 people are located in a narrow mountain pass and can make a stand until the main forces arrive… Oh,who am I kidding, they are all dead.

    I love this show and your photo recaps in equal measure. They go together like hot wings and ice cream. I recently converted a friend to the show, and she’s been instructed to read your recaps after watching each episode. She snorted up ice cream through her nose on your first recap, but has since trained herself to keep ice cream (also, melted cheese) out of the snorting. Thanks so much for your hilarious recaps!

    The only time I wish I had more influence is a) Getting more people to watch the 100 so it doesn’t get canceled b) Getting more people to read Toni_watches recaps. I tell everyone, “This lady just gets it.”

    Because let’s face it, as frustrating as Pike’s plot line is, he’s still relatable as shit. Jaha! Take notes!

    Precisely!
    Great recap!
