Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: Shortly after she arrived on the ground after the destruction of Polaris Station, Becca Pramheda approached the survivors in the Second Dawn bunker and offered them Nightblood as a means of survival outside the bunker. Bill Cadogan responded by having her burned at the stake.


* AintTooProundToBeg: Played with. In her final moments, Becca desperately begged the Second Dawn cult to let her save THEM, as her Nightblood serum could save all of them from the radiation and they could live outside the bunker.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathSeeker: Octavia has fully become this, and it shows.

Finally, she is the first to start walking into the dessert to make war, after destroying any chance she and Wonkru have of surviving in Polis.


* SelfHarm: At what seems to be the peak of Octavia's self-hatred, she looks at a broken mirror and seems to contemplate slitting her wrist with a shard of glass. After a moment, she instead cuts her arm open instead and smears the blood across her face.
