Looks like hydroponics coup lady is full on board with Juancru now. The system works, even if the leader is insanely stubborn and only ordered the retreat after getting owned badly by the sandstorm.

lmao Octavia. "Love no one and no one can hurt you"

Yeah, I don't know if Octavia's coming back from cannibalism here. I do not care for that.

The Dark Year was them realizing that they had a supply of long pig and it is delicious.

I loving love this show.

I did have a giggle at those xenomorph worms, though. The killer death wave wiped out every living thing except for the loving parasitic worms living at the bottom of the ocean floor, eh?

oh i think it's far worse than that

those worms could just be the larval stage of that gigantic carnivorous lamprey that attacked Murphy and Jaha's boat on the first trip to ALIE's island. which may now be warped into a shark-sized sand lamprey, given how this show treats nuclear apocalypse like a wild and lethal sort of magic

there could be all manner of terrible creatures already warped by a hundred years of life and reproduction after the first nuclear war, mutated even further by praimfaya

speaking of weird monsters, last season when the nightblood serum crew ventured to ALIE's island and was set upon by those gun drones, Emori said some vague stuff about there being far worse things than the drones lurking around the island, the same things the drones were actually intended to defend against. i wonder if we're going to find out what she meant by that, since post-praimfaya mutant weirdness is now definitely on the table

Worm silliness aside, that was another good episode. Diyoza is definitely the best capital-V Villain the show's had. She gets just the right balance between casual bemusement and raw intensity. She's intimidating just by being there, which is a hard note to hit. I'm surprisingly warming up to McCreary, too, mostly because he's a plain and simple no-nonsense thug - I can easily imagine that worse writers would've made that scene with him and Raven unbearable.

I'm especially pleased to see that Octavia's character development remains intact. I was a little worried that, as soon as big brother Bellamy showed up, she'd turn back into a goopy mess, but, nope, she's taking this Blodreina thing seriously. I get the impression Indra's getting more and more worried over the monster she's helped create; wonder if there's gonna be any friction between the two as the series goes on.

This was actually revealed in a real blink-and-you-miss-it moment during episode 2. After the final skip back to the present day, there's a lingering shot of the woman's wounded hand that then pans up to her face, standing next to Octavia in full Wonkru garb. You're supposed to make the connection between the wound and the knife Octavia chucked through her palm when they broke the siege.

I can relate to blacks. When Dave Chappelle made the "white people dance like this" joke. I too felt the stinging whip of racism upon my back.
Put me on ignore

There's being on board, and there's being an asslicker. Judging from Indra's comment when hydro lady agrees with Octavia, she's more an asslicker than anything.

When they eat they say some weird poo poo about all of us to me, then at the end Octavia tells someone to leave the bodies and that person is surprised. It isn't shown or stated outright, just alluded to. We'll probably get some exposition next week.

I think it's just speculation based on 'the Dark Year' and Octavia leaving bodies behind.

I could see it maybe being a thing that happened during the dark year, assuming that means power was down in the bunker in places like mb the hydro farm, but otherwise idk. I assumed the shock at leaving the bodies was less 'why aren't we eating them' and more 'why aren't we burning/honouring them in some way'.

Wonkru takes people dying to let the rest of Wonkru keep going very seriously.

They also didn't want Clarke to look at the sick guy's rations.

I've been wondering if the botanist lady is up to some shady poo poo with the rations, also.

And there's a moment at the start where Indra -- who seems the least happy with Octavia's regime -- suggests that Clarke check out the rations, which I read as her subtly trying to tell Clarke that something's going on.

Nice catch.

Every Juancrew member seems to have and air of shame/guilt/weird attachment to the group. Its not obvious at first but becomes so on a re watch.

The fact they are all super loyal and Octavia now has a iron rod of crazy within her, makes me think they bonded over something... Long porky.

Loving Indra this season, she out of all of Juancrew seems to be sanest, yet you do notice that at times even she knows poo poo is hosed up.

Indra seems to know that if she steps out of line she loses what little influence she has left. Gaia also seems to be a huge player with Octavia now, I hope Cain's discussion gives us information on the dark year and what happened after Octavia got everyone under control.

I think Indra's genuinely concerned over the health and sanity of Octavia (who, by this point, is practically like a second daughter to her), but she's well aware that things have progressed to where speaking out of turn will get her dumped in a canyon. If even big brother Bellamy is getting threatened with death if he dares question Juankru, she's in no better position to do so. It doesn't help that she's always had a hard time with wearing her feelings on her sleeve.

When at the start did Indra tell Clarke and Bellamy to check out the rations, btw? I must have missed that, because I only remember her telling them to pick up the backpacks that have their share of rations in them.
