"The heart and the head."
Bellamy Blake

Russell seeks justice. Meanwhile, Gabriel must make a difficult choice. The Blake siblings reunite.

  • Big Damn Heroes: Bellamy when he disguises himself as one of the Sanctum guards and rescues Clarke/Josephine, Octavia, and Gabriel, and then later when he saves Clarke after Josephine slits her throat in the mind space.
  • Call-Back: "The heart and the head."
  • Character Death: Josephine. Also Simone, but her mind drive is still intact and so she can still be revived.

  • CPR: Clean, Pretty, Reliable: Bellamy does CPR on Clarke after Gabriel pronounces her dead, and is able to bring her back. Played With somewhat in that Clarke's mind wasn't technically dead in the mind space yet, and hearing his voice trying to bring her back is what gave Clarke the strength to finish off Josephine and save herself.
  • Eureka Moment: Russell telling him that he could have been one of the skeletons in Sanctum one day gives Murphy the idea to create more Nightblood hosts by using bone marrow, which buys them some time at the very last possible second.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Murphy’s status as this is made abundantly clear. Upon being told their friends will be forced to choose who will die, Echo immediately concludes they’ll pick Murphy. Cut to the group, and Murphy comes to the same conclusion, which everyone else affirms.

  • He Knows Too Much: While Murphy's gambit buys time for him and his friends, Russell chooses to burn his citizen who knows the truth about the Primes so that he won't tell anyone else.
  • Internal Reveal: Abby only just now finds out what has happened to Clarke. Also, Russell fills in Simone about everything she has missed while in space.
  • Not Quite Dead: Clarke's heart stops beating, but hers and Josephine's brains are still functioning within the mind space, which allows Bellamy to bring her back.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: Bellamy begs Clarke to stay with him, telling her he needs her, as he tries to save her life.
  • Shout-Out: Josephine quotes Shakespeare at Gabriel.
