I rewatched the episode and here’s a few interesting things to think about :

1. I looked up the timeline and supposedly season 1-4 take place over less than one year . This says S1 started in September 2149 and s4 January 2150. Praimfaya supposedly happens April 2150.

2. Octavia has now ruled for 6 years. She has literally spent more time among the grounders/bunker crew than she has known Clark and everyone else outside the bunker except for Bellamy.

Yep! I know I've brought up the timeline a few times, figured it was under a year or juuust barely over one with the couple few month skips they had.

Must be a relief playing their own ages now instead of eternally 18.

Clarke’s actor is 28 and Octavia’s 31. Bellamy’s 33. Still a bit younger than their own ages . It looks like Murphy’s actor is the youngest one at 26 so he’s kinda close I guess.

Yessssss this was what I needed. Octavia's been growing on me a lot since the Enclave episode. They are doing such a good job developing her character. She's becoming less impulsive and hardheaded and developing key leadership skills. The alternative to trial by combat would have just been executing everyone on trial. This way, at least one person has a chance to walk away, and it probably also appealed to many of the Grounders who might have still been doubting her up to that point.

Also, I think the show is pulling off bottle episodes pretty well.

Its amazing that those people who built the bunker prepared for everything but never considered the possibility that a nuclear apocalypse could make that huge rear end building collapse above the one and only entrance

A big part of the reason why this show owns is how hilariously nearsighted or bizarre a lot of the plot setups end up being. Like, yeah, I guess we shouldn't have built all of our nuclear reactors to simultaneously explode and unleash a planet-cleansing wave if left unattended for too long, huh? Whoopsie!

Well to be fair nobody could have predicted "prymefaya" because it doesnt makes any sense to begin with

I guess it all boils down to nobody but ALIE being able to predict that all nuclear plants in the world would fail at the same time and cause global waves of fire

ALIE didn't even really predict the praimfaya (love that word) too far out, she just detected the first nuclear plant cook-offs and did the math

she would've been powerless to do anything about it too if Jaha descending from the ring hadn't given her a source of juice to go mobile with

Also ALIE's plan was pretty stupid too. Ok everyone is uploaded and living in the virtual world on the space station but their bodies are dust because they were on the planet. Now what?

from what Jasper said and did cyber-Vancouver was really nice. he had a dang triple-scoop strawberry ice cream cone when Clarke spied him there

and i expect ALIE's longer-term plan lay along the lines of using facilities at the island or in space to vat-grow a fresh human race after the praimfaya, one where everyone gets the Key at birth. for all we know taking the Key uploaded each citizen's genetic code along with their minds to the City of Light, it might've been possible for ALIE to place everyone who joined in new, perfected versions of their old bodies if they liked.

then Clarke ruined it all, naturally

Clarke immediately shooting and eating the first living things she comes across after the apocalypse perfectly sums up her character.

Clarke never misses an opportunity to instill her ruthless bloodthirst into another human heart. Remember, Maddie: it's perfectly normal to blow the brains out of a disarmed, wounded man.

I liked it from a storytelling point of view, but that's a awful lot of biomass to discard when you need every gram and calorie....

It would take more energy to burn the bodies for energy and there’s the danger of catching some incurable disease from eating other humans.

Plus I’m not even sure if they’d have a full-on kitchen in a space station where all the food is probably powdered.

Also they’re probably all vegetarians up on the Ark anyway cause there’s literally no reason for them to have brought meat up with them. It’s one of those things I really don’t understand about the people on the show Doomsday Preppers (well, other than the whole prepper thing): you see them stashing hundreds of pounds of meat in a freezer or raising animals for “in case the United States falls.” Like at that point I think you’d have more to worry about than which cut of steak you want tonight.

Besides how much meat does an average human provide anyway?

I’m okay with them not being cannibals.

I was thinking not in a literal "eat the dead" sense, but more in a "it is every citizen's final duty to go into the tanks" way. More fertilizer for the hydroponics beds and whatnot....

i doubt they're eating the meat outside of ceremonial purposes, which is fine by me honestly

but i'd be astonished if the bodies aren't becoming fertilizer or getting used to grow mushrooms like on The Expanse
