The Netflix Chronicles: The 100 Season 3 Midway Point Reflections

It has been a while since I have done a Netflix Chronicles update. So, here it is: I will be talking about the show I have been watching regularly. The 100. I have now reached the midway point of this season. As such, flailing and anxiety must be shared.

Warning: spoilers may lie ahead

premise

Dealing with the consequences of season 2, Clakre is now called Wanheda and everyone is looking for her. Her connection with Lexa leads to some attempts to create peace between the Grounders and the Sky-people. But, chaos reigns within a few episodes. So, don’t get too excited.

Wanheda x heda

Speaking of which, I have to discuss this Wanheda/Heda business. Two people in a position of power, and yet conflict pressures them a lot. It is kind of like an elaborate dance, because neither Clarke nor Lexa ever seems distressed by all the tension between their people.

Also: like, all the backstabbing and the secrecy is hard to watch because I love Lexa and Clarke. They’re awesome people.

Bellamy and the angry mob mentality

Sigh. Look, I love Bellamy. I really do. But, he slips into this angry rage in season 3. I don’t know how much more he’ll screw things up. I mean, you know we’re in trouble when Bellamy is a threat to Clarke.

Just saying.

Besides, the tensions between Team 1 (Bellamy, Pike and gang) vs. Team 2 (Kane, Abby, and Octavia) is really intense. Okay.

jaha and alie marching on

Man, I don’t know what to make of ALIE. Like Abby, I remain rather…unsure. But, hey, they got Raven. So that’s kind of epic because Raven is super critical of things like this.

Moreover: Otan or whatever his name is. I hope this doesn’t bite Emori and Murphy in the butt.

This boy has the CRAPPIEST luck of all time. I don’t know if I am 100% sure of Emori yet (she reminds me of Echo…shifty). He tries to survive through this poop-fest of a life that he’s leading so far. And, while I do understand that he tries to make sense of the history of commanders and the lady who keeps appearing (oh jeez. I don’t know how this is going to come together as a single cohesive story-line. Not being sarcastic. I am seriously unsure how it will work out eventually).

One thought on “The Netflix Chronicles: The 100 Season 3 Midway Point Reflections”

  1. I *need* to know if you’ve watched Stealing Fire yet. I should check Twitter! Twitter was useless. Anyway, it’s episode 9 of S3, and it is the worst episode ever. Not in terms of quality- I give that distinction to episode 3×12, Demons. I will be curious to hear your thoughts! I think the first half of S3 is the weakest of the whole series, so now that you got that out of the way, you should be good to go. A lot of people actually liked Demons, I just don’t happen to be one of them 😉

    If you reached the midway point, I assume you’ve seen Lexa’s outcome? Murphy DOES have the worst luck, I concur! And I think Raven was honestly too broken to care anymore when she took the chip, you know? But it was also a big turning point for JALIE.
