Clarke: “Bow before you? You don’t give a damn about my people. I know why you’re here. I made you look weak at Mount Weather, and now the Ice Nation is exploiting that.”
“Ye Who Enter Here” is the February 4 episode of “The 100.” Warning, this article contains spoilers. Be sure to check out the slideshow for more quotes from the episode. “The 100” airs Thursday nights at 8 P.M. CT on the CW.
Clarke and Lexa have been reunited, and things are rough, like assassination attempt rough. Obviously, Clarke can’t kill Lexa because even though she’s hurt and upset by Lexa’s actions, Clarke still cares for her. Plus, she has enough blood on her hands right now, and Clarke can’t handle physically taking another life.
What’s great is that while Clarke doesn’t shy away from throwing Lexa’s actions at Mount Weather in her face, Lexa doesn’t hold back either. Lexa knows what it’s like to make those tough calls, and so she understands where Clarke’s anger is coming from.
We got to see a little bit more of how Clarke is doing after the Mountain. She’s angry, and right now, as Lexa said, it’s easier for her to hate Lexa than to hate herself. It makes sense. Lexa’s betrayal led to Clarke having to kill an entire group of people. If Lexa had stayed, maybe Clarke wouldn’t have been the one to kill all the Mountain men.
What’s really intriguing is that Clarke refuses to go home. She’s still on the run from Skaikru even when Bellamy begged her to return. Clarke claimed she needed to stay to make sure Lexa keeps her word, but there’s more to it. She still hasn’t faced her actions in Mount Weather and discovered a way to live with what she’s done while being surrounded by her own people.
Lexa sure knows how to woo a girl. Granted, a down on one knee proposal is a little drastic as a next step, but it’s convincing. Hopefully it’s not enough to make Clarke forgive and forget, but she should definitely take that as a sign that Lexa does mean her words. Let’s just put Lexa on probation for now.
One great thing about Lexa being back, aside from Clexa, is that we get to know more about the role as Commander. The Nightbloods are tiny children who are training with Lexa. We don’t really get to see this side of Grounder life, and it’s fascinating.
Raise your hand if you knew where the Chancellor election storyline is going to go. Yes, Abby wanting to give the position to Kane made sense because he’s definitely the guy for the job. However, now we have Pike.
Pike has a group of people behind him and his Grounder killer mentality, and it’s obvious that he’s going to win the vote for Chancellor. While it is not all that great to have a predictable storyline, this one is even worse because we are essentially reliving seasons one and two of “The 100.”
When the 100 first got to the ground, they quickly learned about the brutality of the Grounders, and so, naturally, they fought back. Then, we met Lincoln and had to wait for everyone besides Octavia to realize that Grounders aren’t evil people. We watched our delinquents build a relationship with the Grounders and a trust.
Sure, Lexa’s decision at Mount Weather set back that relationship a bit, but we should be spending time trying to be able to trust the Grounders again. Instead, we are going back to the start. Pike will become Chancellor, and he’s most likely going to make us relive history. It’s annoying, but at least it’s not boring like the City of Light.
Did anyone else think Sinclair was going to die? He hasn’t been around in awhile, and he just had a really good episode. That’s typically a sign of death.
He was the MVP, for sure. Sinclair helped Raven to build up her courage and confidence that had been shaken due to the injuries she has sustained. Sinclair was the friend that Raven has needed. It’s such a relief that he didn’t die. Love you, Sinclair!
There may have been yelling at the TV when Mount Weather things started to go down. This is “The 100” that we all know and love. It brings the pain in unimaginable ways. The Ice Nation destroying the Mountain will have serious repercussions. It was an attack against the Commander’s orders, but more importantly, it was an attack that killed members of Skaikru. Should they adhere to the Commander’s ceasefire after this or does this call for blood?
What did you think of the episode? Should Skaikru be the 13th clan? Was anyone else surprised that Emerson is buddies with the Ice Nation now? Share your thoughts in a comment below.
