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


I think the big difference is that Clarke barely had the Flame while Madi had it before they left Earth. Even if the trip didn't count she still had it for however long most of last season took.

I became a fan of Richard Harmon due to Continuum but John Murphy, the cockroach, is just the best.

Also can we take a moment to appreciate Adina Porter? She's always good- The 100, True Blood, hell even the goofy Outer Banks was better for having her in it. I haven't seen the season of American Horror Story that she's in though.

Speaking of Richard Harmon, I still find it funny that his sister Jessica was on two CW shows at the same time although her part on The 100 (Clarke's on again off again girlfriend Niylah) is much smaller than iZombie (Dale Bozzio.) Also how her and Richard look absolutely nothing alike.

It was bittersweet seeing that last little interaction between Bellamy and Murphy. They had an amazing arc from the first few eps, where Bellamy was the rear end in a top hat self appointed Thug In Chief of The 100 and Murphy was his cruel, sniveling sidekick. Never would have seen them ending up where they did in a million years.

This loving show. Should have had 3 more seasons.

By looking far out into the 209 we are also looking far back into time, back toward the horizon of the universe, back toward the epoch of the Stockton Slap.



I started watching this last night and it pissed me off like 4 eps in when the little girl murks the chancellor's son. does the show get less cornball?

Yeah if we're talking about Bob being an abuser, that was in June or so. Shooting wrapped in March just as everything shut down for COVID.

The only thing that I heard is that during production Eliza had a miscarriage and Bob took particularly hard and asked to have a reduced role. Which is less of "drama" and more of "a really lovely thing that happened."

Unless there was something else?

I haven't seen anything from this season. But in past years there was the poo poo that went down with Ricky Wittle and Marie Avergondola almost lost her eye at one point.

After watching the last episode I am really starting to believe that not only will John Murphy be the Last Man Standing, but there is a case that with his arc from start to finish he may be the actual protagonist in this show, or at least a co-protagonist with Clarke.

Marie Avgeropoulos. Didn't know about the eye, but she also got arrested for (alleged) domestic violence in 2018.

About the episode: I'm still really enjoying the show despite all its flaws, the whole arc is pretty fun and I can't predict the ending at all, so that's good. I wonder if Bellamy is really fully dead, guess we'll see.

The incompetence of Predator Sheidheda was kind of annoying though, unless he messed up on purpose for some reason. Drunk Niylah was funny, it's pretty cool that she's still in the group.

I like how the show went from 'you need a mask when you enter a portal or you'll lose your memory, it's a very big deal!' to 'just take a nanopill and stab yourself in the stomach to be teleported across the galaxy or some poo poo'.

The memory loss thing was from portaling to somewhere time was running slower (Penance to Sanctum), but I forget how fast Bardo was running compared to Earth.

Also, was that a special knife that could send a signal back to Bardo when it stabbed someone? Didn't Sheidheda take that back with him when he teleported out? What did Madi stab herself with?

It sure was lucky all the symbols for Bardo's address were on top of the Space Ball.

Yeah me too. Don't know why they have to stab themselves to make it work though, the Sheperd didn't do that.

Also Sheidheda left more than one pill behind I think (why would he risk bringing more? Who knows!) so I guess Clarke can just follow them using that pill?

This season is feeling kind of garbo compared to previous. If it doesnít end with the final war taking place, Iím gonna be mad.

Also nice to see the completely sterilized Earth is back after what, 100 years of no humans? And the forest filled with giant trees that are probably nearly 100 years old themselves.

Haha Clarke having a freakout because Madi ran off trying to save everyone. "Is this how my mom felt?" Poor Madi though

"Where are they?"
"We moved the bridge to a strategically advantageous location."
Can't say they didn't learn from their mistakes

e: I can't believe Russheida is still around. He should have just bled out and died when Indra left him tied up. His death is going to feel really rushed now in a finale that has a lot of stuff to wrap up.

I agree. I've actually quite disliked the entire Sanctum thing of the past couple of seasons. The villains have been boring as hell imo. Russell as Sheidheda is pretty cool though.

Add me to the "I hope John Murphy is the last survivior/ruler" camp.

Cadogan's daughter left with a bunch of other people who got blood treatments to restart society on the surface, and some of them must have gone back later to investigate what was happening in the bunker. There was an Azgeda symbol on the concrete where they dug.

Got a big kick out of Russheida killing all those dudes. Heís probably my favorite part of the season by far. The actor played both personalities very well.
