- Annoying Arrows: What takes out Ilian.
- Anyone Can Die: While the episode was set up as a fight to the death, no one expected Roan to die this episode.
- Character Death: Roan, Luna, and Ilian die this episode.
- I Am Not My Father: Well, mother. Roan cites this as why he won't allow Echo to cheat for him during the conclave as he doesn't want to win with dishonor.
- Kidnapped by an Ally: It's revealed that Jaha and Clarke had Bellamy drugged and kidnapped to get him out of Polis and into the bunker.
- Parental Substitute: While it's been heavily implied before, this episode pretty much solidifies that both Kane and Indra are this to Octavia. Indra even gives Octavia her sword, which she says her own daughter would never accept.
- Wham Episode: Roan, Luna, and Ilian are killed, and Skaikru forcibly takes the bunker while the other clans are distracted by the conclave. Oh, and it was Clarke's idea.
