Recap / The 100 S 06 E 09

Go To

Bellamy must venture out into enemy territory with an unlikely companion. Meanwhile, Octavia is forced to confront her past.

  • Black and Gray Morality: Indra points out that, from a certain perspective, what the Primes do isn't really any more brutal than enforcing a one-child only policy on the Ark and floating people who broke the rules, or forcing children to fight for the death to be Commander.
  • Casual Danger Dialogue: Much of Bellamy and Josie's conversations through the episode count, including him asking her about her relationship with Gabriel and her trying to figure out his relationship with Clarke.

  • Cool Bike: Clarke steals Jade's and, thanks to Josephine's mind, knows how to drive it.
  • Choosing Death: Kane could have stayed on living in his host's body, but he didn't consider it living, and ultimately decided to die in the hopes that his death would stop the Primes from committing more body snatching in the future.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Kane appears as himself in Abby's eyes (goodbye, Henry Ian Cusick!) to explain his decision, and his peaceful and calm as the airlock opens.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Abby sobs as Kane says goodbye to her.
  • Killed Off for Real: May we meet again, Marcus Kane.
  • Mirror Match: Octavia vs Blodreina.
  • Not So Stoic: Indra is clearly fighting back tears as she recites the Ark's farewell and opens the airlock on Kane.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: Josie relinquishes control to Clarke momentarily because the Children of Gabriel are about to behead her because she knows Clarke has better fighting skills than herself, and she will regain control when Clarke falls asleep, not because it's the right thing to do.

  • Redemption Quest: Octavia acknowledges aloud that this, not just forgiveness, is what she's after.
