Clarke: I’m sorry. I’m sorry for leaving, but I knew I could because they had you.”
“Hakeldama” is the February 18 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.
Bellamy, you precious, precious child, you need to take some time to sit down and think everything through. Look at where your friends are, and look at where you are. Something should click. If that doesn’t work, maybe Raven can knock some sense into him.
He’s clearly not completely on board with Pike’s agenda, and honestly there was a sigh of relief when we learned Bellamy wasn’t completely lost. He spared Indra. He tried to spare the wounded. The man we know and love isn’t completely gone. Bellamy is reverting back to who he was when he first landed on the ground.
Bellamy and Clarke’s scene was everything that we have needed to happen since Mount Weather. These are the two who pulled the lever, and they are both handling it differently. Bellamy and Clarke were alone in a room together with the goal of making the other person realize the mistakes they made.
Bellamy called Clarke out on everything that she did – almost blowing up Octavia, trusting Lexa who betrayed them, killing the Mount Weather people who helped Bellamy, and leaving him alone to deal with it all.
Clarke has known what she’s done, but she hasn’t really accepted or thought about what affect her actions had on other people. This is something that has been annoying since the premiere. There was never any time for Clarke to process what she did, and how it affected those she left behind.
Bellamy forced her to look at everything, just like Clarke was trying to do with the Pike situation. The two of them hold each other in such high esteem that the other person’s words carry a lot of weight. They depended on each other a lot back before the rest of the Ark came down. Bellamy and Clarke were co-leaders. They’ve went through so much together.
When Bellamy called Clarke out on things, she was brought to tears. Clarke heard Ocatvia’s comment about how she can’t know what’s going on in Arkadia because she hasn’t been there, but it didn’t really resonate with Clarke at all. She brushed it off because she still felt like she could fix things, and that she still had power there. There wasn’t an apology there, and there was an apology to Bellamy.
Another interesting relationship development was between Lexa and Clarke. Last season, Lexa influenced Clarke a lot when it came to how a leader should behave and act – Lexa persuaded Clarke to let Mount Weather bomb the camp. Now, it’s the other way around.
The power has shifted, and it will be interesting to see if Indra is right and that Lexa will lose support. Considering how much we have learned about how the next Heda is chosen, it wouldn’t be surprising if Lexa’s new peace mission ends with her death. Of course it would be best if we didn’t have to endure that pain and lose a fascinating character, but this is “The 100.”
Jaha and A.L.I.E. made it to Arkadia, and it was actually really entertaining to see Jaha back amongst his people. Abby’s sass game was on point, but more interestingly, Raven joined the City of Light. It made sense that she would be the first one that Jaha would win over because she’s in so much pain, and Raven’s not really doing anything to change that fact.
Emori and Murphy also reappeared, but honestly they were super boring. Murphy needs to reunite with someone from Skaikru, and then, maybe, his storyline will get a bit more exciting. The only intriguing thing that happened was that a Grounder saw the City of Light chip and referred to it as the sacred symbol. Any theories on why it is sacred to them?
