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
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.
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).
To be continued…
