Yea I don't think they had anyone who knows what it does. But it looks cool and was hidden, so it's gotta be worth something!

They have over 300 episodes of Supernatural! That's plenty of content.

They could do what Nick did with SpongeBob and just play it for 18 hours a day.

Speaking of the Space Ball: where the gently caress is Gaia? Did I miss a cameo somewhere in the intervening episodes? Poor girl was finally getting some character development before she straight up vanished from the plot.

To be fair, airing a series that's freely available on YouTube without ads doesn't seem like a great strategy. Even if you watched the first ep and liked it (the correct opinion) there is not much reason to tune into the CW to watch more.

Was thumbing through the old episodes. I really appreciate that the 4th episode of the show was titled "Murphy's Law" but goddamn that could have been a good name for any of his later season misadventures.

This season sure has been something. I don't really feel like it's good but maybe watching it in big chunks instead of week to week will make it better. This episode is sure to make the internet crazy for a bit.

I was already seeing some outrage online, which even I didn't read any specific spoilers, made me watch the episode wondering who was going to die.

It wasn't the best death we got, but it was far from the worst. And I'm all for picking off the main characters one by one in the final season.

I have to say that I honestly did not expect that. I thought for sure that Bellamy would at least make it to the last episode.

There have been some cool moments so far, but I'm not really feeling the overall plotline. With it still being very vague on what the "last war" would entail, I don't really know what the stakes are. Maybe it'll work better when the season is done and you can watch it all in one block. We'll see.

They did not do a good job justifying that death. Although really everything with Bellamy has been off this season.

I wonder if that bombshell about his cheating with Eliza Taylor was known before they started on the season and they pushed him aside because of it.

Yeah, you can feel it with everything, but with Bellamy especially you get the sense that they're trying to cram 2-3 seasons worth of ideas into 16 episodes.

I remember a scene where Bellamy says something about "moral relativism" and he said "moral" in such an un-American way that I knew he was a dirty foreigner.

It seems to be full of memories that Madi had from the Flame that she sketched out. Including ones related to the stones. I'd assume it could potentially include hints to, or the entirety of, the final key that they want so badly.

I think what they were going for is that if they knew Madi had Flame memories in her head they would take her and put her in the memory machine.

I think the sketchbook is simply the proof that Madi's brain still holds the memories that the Flame did before it was destroyed, meaning they could extract Becca's memory from her, a process that would presumably hurt/kill Madi.

If the above is correct, then Clarke herself should also still have these memories though.

e: even though the season's story is quite confusing and inconsistent at times (it makes no sense that they went into that last portal without masks) it still manages to keep me interested. I am very curious to see where it all ends up. Murphy and Indra are the season's highlights for me.

Considering Clarke retrieved the flame off camera I'd guess Gaia isn't coming back for the finale.
