Added DiffLines:

* CassandraTruth: Carl Emerson, a GenreSavvy Mount Weather Lieutenant, discovers that the Grounders and Ark survivors have formed an alliance, and immediately advises Cage Wallace to begin trying to disrupt it and make them kill each other.

Added DiffLines:

* DueToTheDead: Raven insists on making the journey to TonDC, so that she can say goodbye to Finn and ensure his body is taken care of.
* EasilyForgiven: Averted. Indra makes it clear to Lincoln that the Grounders have not forgiven him for betraying them to the Sky People. The fact that he is a former Reaper only intensifies their antagonism towards him.
* HollywoodHealing: Lincoln. [[RunningGag Again]]. He's walking normally again, despite Bellamy putting a high powered rifle round in his leg less than a week previously.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Bellamy is against the truce with the Grounders, believing it to be a waste of time. When Clarke points out that they need the Grounder Army to breach Mount Weather, Bellamy points out that, historically speaking, the Grounders have never been able to do so, which Clarke doesn't have a response to.
* TheMole: Bellamy volunteers to become this to Mount Weather, hoping to be able to infiltrate it to assist in the rescue of the 47. Clarke initially thinks it's suicide and refuses to let him, but comes around by the end of the episode.



* SanitySlippage: Clarke's sanity starts to fray in this episode, as the trauma of killing Finn, combined with the pressure to keep the alliance together, start to get to her. She starts hallucinating Finn's corpse talking to her as a result, although she is at least aware this time that it's not real.

Added DiffLines:

* AChildShallLeadThem: Lampshaded by Abby, who finds the notion of Lexa leading the Grounders absurd, due to her age. Kane shuts her down when he points out that, as the have both effectively ceded authority to Clarke when it comes to negotiating with Lexa, they are both being led by a child as well.
