Recap / The 100 S 06 E 03

Go To

Clarke: We can change.
Russell: I believe you want to, Clarke. I just don't believe you can.

Clarke tries to win over the leaders of Sanctum in order to let her people stay. Meanwhile, Bellamy, Echo and Octavia discover a new threat while on a mission to retrieve the transport ship.


  • A God Am I: The cure that saves Murphy was discovered by Gabriel, which apparently led him to believing he was immortal.

  • Can Only Move the Eyes: Once paralyzed, Madi and Gaia can only move their eyes. This is still enough for them to communicate with Diyoza, though.
  • Coitus Interruptus: The paralytic darts used by the Children of Gabriel take out Delilah just as she’s about to have sex with Jordan
  • Heroic BSoD: Murphy is profoundly shaken by whatever he saw when he died.
  • Hypocrite: Madi calls Diyoza’s baby “The child of two mass murderers”, either forgetting or not knowing just how many people Clarke has killed.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Clarke’s attempted defense when Simone and Russell confront her about the number of people she’s killed.
  • I'm Going to Hell for This: When Murphy is revived, he solemnly tells Emori, "I think I'm going to hell," likely for all of his past deeds.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While Simone is incredibly harsh about how she says it, she has a good point about how often Clarke is willing to kill others to save her people, and the people of Sanctum are definitely not hers.

  • Kill 'Em All: Octavia's method of choice when it comes to saving their friends. Unfortunately, it leads to Bellamy deeming her too much of a risk on this new planet and leaving her behind.
  • Meaningful Echo: When Octavia tries to appeal with Bellamy to let her stay by reminding him that she's his sister, he quotes her from both seasons 4 and 5 by saying, "My sister died a long time ago."
  • Off with His Head!: The Children of Gabriel behead the three dead Primes - Kaylee's family - on the ship.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Russell declares Murphy dead, but also says that death is not the end, and is able to save him.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • Clarke is shocked and a little scared when Russell’s dog runs up to her. Considering there were no dogs on the Ark and maybe were wolves on the ground, it’s a very appropriate reaction.
    • Clarke tries to defend the number of people she’s killed by claiming that she did what she had to do to save her people. It’s not reassuring, since as the leaders of Sanctum, they’d be the first people Clarke would kill if she had to.

    • Dioyza, despite helping Madi and Gaia, is a terrorist comparable (apparently) to Hitler and Bin Laden, and when Russell recognizes her, he banishes her from Sanctum.
  • Saying Too Much:
    • Jordan, who has never interacted with a pretty girl (who wasn’t his mother) before and is quite taken by Delilah, reveals way too much information about the others, giving Russell ample reasons to refuse to allow them to stay in Sanctum.
    • Madi has a smaller version at the end, when she uses Diyoza’s name, causing Russell to recognize her and banish her from Sanctum.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Clarke looks stunning in her evening wear. It helps that it’s one of relatively few times we see her without some dirt or blood on her face.
  • Tranquilizer Dart: The Children of Gabriel's weapon of choice, though the darts don't knock their victims out, just paralyze them.
  • Wham Line: “How many people have you killed Clarke, or should I call you Wanheda?” Not only does Simone know the truth about Clarke, she seems to have learned it in great detail

How well does it match the trope?
