It’s been a while since I did a Netflix Chronicles update. This particular one will focus on season 3 of the 100. My reason for taking too long to finish this season was because of its intensity. Poor characters, this was a rough ride.
Let’s start. WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
After the demise of the Mount Weather peeps, Clarke is on the run. Dubbed Wanheda, a Commander of Death, various groups are searching for her. Including Lexa and the Grounders. Meanwhile, something shady is going with Jaha. I’m not bitter or anything about it.
(Yes, I am. He makes me so mad).
The season starts with the tension between Clarke and Lexa. You can only imagine my joy at seeing Lexa once more in the City of Light. I love her. She’s such a complex and sweet character. Definitely one of my favorites.
Furthermore, the distance between Monty and Jasper at the beginning of this season is addressed by the last few episodes. I can see Jasper’s light fading. It’s so sad.
I feel like Monty lost so much this season. From his mother, to his best friend, it is like things continue to beat him down. He is such a light for this group. *Everyone, let’s shield Monty from this crap world he lives in* Harper is kind of getting some more screen time, which is nice.
(Hopefully she doesn’t die, okay? Let Monty be happy with her. Jeez).
By far the most painful conflict to watch was twofold: Clarke vs. Bellamy, and Octavia vs. Bellamy. I surprisingly did not cry at what happens to Lincoln, which is weird. To tell you the truth, I was too stunned to react.
This tended to be the reaction I had to most of the season. Octavia hitting Bellamy was such a real moment. I can’t even explain. To me, I imagined them to be really close. And, there’s a fracture there between them now.
Oh! Obviously the tension between Raven and Alie is AWESOME. Raven was pushed to the point of despair. Then, it led to Clarke vs. Alie, and the impending doom of the people on the ground was even more palpable.
Pike and Kane/Abby’s conflict continued to rage on; they were distracted enough to not notice Alie and Jaha (He makes me so mad) creating a whole network of zombie-like people.
All the Murphy and Ontari scenes were gold. He was essentially showcasing his tricks with her, and she was this aggressive, kill-happy person.
Raven resisting Alie with the recitation of The Raven while listening to loud music and exercising.
Speaking of Raven, listen, the whole scene with her chipping away at Bellamy, Clarke, and Jasper’s facade of contentedness was excellent.
All the Monty and Jasper scenes hurt so bad. Shay and Jasper broke my heart.
Flashback scenes with baby-faced cast were helpful to flesh out Pike’s character.
You should also know that I had to shush my squeal at seeing Lexa again. Seriously. I love her.
On that note, I’m going to wrap up this post, because I can gush for days.
