Welcome, welcome! In case you missed last week’s recap, it was over at Amber’s house. You may want to read it, because it’s very funny, and if you have seen this week’s episode, you will know why you need laughter back in your life. Because this one is not going to be funny, folks.
Now, if you recall, unlike in book reviews, we do not mind spoiling the hell out of the show, so turn back now if you don’t want to know any of the things! This has been your warning! Like, our SPOILERS have spoilers this week. It is kind of a big deal.
OH and while it may be obvious that I don’t like, hang around taking still photos from the show’s set, these pictures aren’t mine, of course. They’re from, you know, the show.
Now, let’s do this! Episode 3×07: Thirteen
In which I will never be okay again.
Look, this episode gutted me. That’s the bad news. The good news is that aside from the fact that I may never stop crying, it was really well done. I was scared even from the start, because Amber had told us that Twitter was already losing their actual shit.
But then it ended, and I understood why they were losing their shit, and I could not form thought in the head any longer.
But, we have so many feelings. SO MANY.
In which Holly and I sob, and Amber is an emotionless cyborg.
Baby Got Backstory
Before we get to all the tears. We finally are getting the story of how this hellhole came to be! I was so excited for this because I love a good history lesson. Even a fictional one.
Meet Becca. She’s the one closest to us. Those two in the background are her coworkers. Oh yeah, and they’re just have a nice look-see at the world ending. No big.
Certainly the right time for an “Oh SHIT” moment.
Our good pal Becca invented ALIE. But ALIE was sick of Becca’s shenanigans and went rogue. And not Sarah Palin style. Apocalypse style. But guys! It’s cool. She has a plan. ALIE 2, of course! The coworkers are like “Bitch please, no one is trusting you again. And by no one, I mean all seven humans still in existence. Which you caused.”
Sure lady, you keep telling yourself that.
Oooooh right. Incidentally, we got more of that guy from The Bunker Diaries.
Anyway. So, she locks everyone out, refuses to float ALIE 2, and basically gets her entire station blown to smithereens. She doesn’t even seem sorry? She escapes, after uhh inserting ALIE 2 into her own neck? Because that’s what normal people do. Then she grabs the last ship to earth and waves to all the people she’s going to kill.. again. It’s kind of her “thing”, no?
Ah, Home, Sweet Hell Hole!
I suppose these will be questions for another episode. Really, they don’t want to give away all the answers at once!
Clexa, At Last and the Last
We didn’t have a lot to say about this because… well it was really sweet and then it was really awful and the feels.
Clarke is getting ready to go back to Arkadia, because of the usual Grounder/Skaikru nonsense, but she wishes she didn’t have to. Because Lexa.
But she doesn’t have to leave at that exact moment so…
MY. FEELS. Alycia Debnam-Carey is just so good in these scenes. Like, epically good.
I shipped the hell out of it, for as long as it would last, and I knew it couldn’t last forever, but I had kind of hoped for longer than three minutes?
Murphy vs. Titus
Titus thinks that Murphy knows stuff about ALIE, or ALIE2, or who even knows what. So he beats the actual hell out of him. That’s not very nice. But Murphy never stops being Murphy, because who else tries to piss off the dude beating them up?
But really, Titus wants Clarke out of the picture, because he thinks Lexa is distracted. So he uses a very abused Murphy as bait to lure her in. As you do when you’re a batshit crazy old man who thinks that a computer chip is religion.
And this happens.
May We Meet Again
I’m just gutted here. So I am going to use mostly GIFs because I cannot word.
I cannot. SOBBING.
“In peace, may you leave the shore. In love, may you find the next. Safe passage on your travels, until our final journey on the ground. May we meet again.”
In the end, Lexa realized that Clarke had been right all along.
And… words fail me.
When I was sure that I was just going to sob my face off, the show threw a curve ball. As usual.
Um, WHAT NOW!??!
So of course we have questions. And lest we forget about our friends in Arkadia… what the hell is going to happen next week!?!?
