The 100 Episode 3×08 “Terms and Conditions”


Welcome, welcome! In case you missed last week’s recap, here you go! This is the mid-season finale. The show won’t be back until March 31 ::sobs:: BUT Amber, Holly, the occasional Val, and I have something fun planned so you can catch up before Episode 3×09, “Stealing Fire”.

 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! 

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 3×08: Terms & Conditions

The end of this show had a really fitting song, so thanks to TV Fanatic for finding out what it was, you can listen to it while you read. Set the tone, if you’d like!

“Bellamy Sucks. Pike Sucks Worse.” 

That was the general mantra, right? But first we had a wee bit of a kerfuffle over Finn’s death versus Pike’s… non death.


Finn made a lot of splashes in this episode, but we’ll get to that. For now, we’re just over the damn Farm Station as a whole.


No one likes Mrs. Monty. Or Regular Monty, for that matter…


Literally the only thing that Mopey Monty does.

When Your Side Plan of your Backup Plans Fail

Oy.  Where do we start? How do we start? So, this whole thing takes place in Arkadia, with two stories: The front burner of Pillamy Versus Kane; and the backburner Raven/Jasper/ALIE. We’ll start with the former.

Pike is getting more and more paranoid, so he decides that really scoping things out isn’t helping anymore, they’re probably going to just have to go ahead and spy on everyone to find out who is helping Pike. They kind of know that Miller is but don’t have proof. So we get to see Miller’s boyfriend kiss him, and then be a complete doucheface and put a bug in his jacket. As a doucheface would. 

NOPE. Shithead.

Anyway, I assume he’ll be dead soon so Monty and Miller can get together. Plus he has made me mad. Don’t do that to Miller. He deserves better than this. Speaking of awesomeness like Miller, freaking HARPER for the win.


So there’s a plan that looks kind of stupid from the start. Sinclair is going to try to fuck up the jeep or whatever that’s going to carry explosives to kill Grounders. But he does it in plain view. While Kane watches. And while I applaud Kane for taking the time to grab a book break, this hardly seems like the time…

I really hope that’s The Hunger Games, Marcus… 

So of course, since the Farmers are spying on everyone, they catch Sinclair and throw him in jail with Lincoln and the other injured grounders. And they start a big old fight, and push the guards out of the way, and things get crazy. So I think this must be the plan! But still nope. THIS is the plan:

Step One: Always listen to Harper. Step Two: Tase the shit out of Pike. 

Step 3. Load Pike into a van to deliver him to Grounders, for Blood Must Have Blood. 

Step 4. Have Bellamy stop your van before you get through the gate.

Step 5. Be a decent human being and  don’t run over Bellamy. Get arrested. 

Step 6- Be Sentenced to Death 

Oooh snap.

Step 7- Make Bellamy rethink his entire life.

Because we have to like some people, and we like basically no one more than Kane these days. And Octavia, but she isn’t in this episode so shhh. T&C4



Rasper’s in the House 

If you don’t like the idea of Raven and Jasper… deal with it because it’s here and it’s real.


Here’s how this goes down, in a nutshell: Raven asks Jasps to help her figure out ALIE’s password or something. The only person who has it is Monty, and well, he isn’t giving it up because he’s looking at his mom like she killed his puppy all day. So she recruits Jasper, because he knows Monty? Whatever, ALIE told her to do it.

So while they work, they casually chat about how nice it will be to only remember the good parts about Maya- their first kiss, the sweet stuff. And Raven looks like dead eyes, and has no idea what Jasper is even saying. Or probably who the fuck Maya is. But Jasper is swooning, so he goes on.

Well, that sounds like bad news. And this was the push she needed. A click, if you will. That led to this:

RASPER saves the day!!

The Wait

We have to wait weeks, you guys! Which, incidentally, is far less painful than the almost YEAR we had to wait in between seasons, so I guess I can handle it. Here, have a promo while you wait. 

Meanwhile, Amber and Holly wondered about this one image from the preview.

T&C8(Pretty sure I was already searching for GIFs by this point….)

I liked what Amber did with the quotes the other week, so I shall do the same!

Favorite Chat Quote:

“Going after all the grounders when you’re outgunned, outmanned, outnumbered, outplanned is stupid.”–Amber/Lin Manuel Miranda

Favorite Show Quote:

“Sounds like a terrible idea, I’m in.” –Jasper

What do you think is going to happen next? Whose days are numbered? And we’ll be back for some mid-season fun!

  1. I never thought I’d hate Bellamy. And I don’t really- I guess I hate the writers for screwing him up lol. But yeah I was ready for Kane to run him over basically. I think I yelled “run him over” at the TV… embarrassing. 🙂 Oh and I love Harper. More please. that’s like the best line of the show.

    And what did Bellamy think was going to happen to Kane? Same thing when he was going to take Clarke to Pike- did he think she would just get a slap on the wrist? I don’t understand what the writers are doing…

    Anyway great recap as always! I can’t believe no episode tonight… it’s Thuuuursdayy …

    • Ugh, RIGHT!? I don’t hate him either… I just hate the direction is character is taking. Hopefully we will be able to like him again, and not hope for jeeps full of Kane to run him down? And seriously, we need more Harper! (And now that we have said that, she shall die in the next episode.)

      And SERIOUSLY! Bellamy is NOT stupid- he should have known! I think he just has put wayyyy too much faith in Pike- which is going to get all his friends killed!

      Also, HOW are we expected to wait nearly two more weeks?! HOW!? I feel like a mid-season giveaway is in order… because we have suffered enough! 😀

  2. This episode definitely renewed my interest. But, ya know, it might have something to do with there being no Clarke in this episode. Go away with your stupid face. I don’t like you. xD Also, YES to flashbacks. Please be flashbacks. I feel like we were cheated out of some gory action!

    • BWHAHAH I love that! I DO like Clarke more this season, but she can be… grating in large doses. She still has my sympathy from the other week with Lexa, let’s see how long it takes her to lose it 😉

      I REALLY think it will be flashbacks- because you’re right, it isn’t like the writers to NOT show the horribleness!

      • I can’t even fully explain why I loathe Clarke. I think it’s because she just stands there all the time, saying she’s fighting for her people, while she left her people, and makes the same stupid almost-cry face every episode. xD I’m just being mean, now. lol

        Also, it could be flashbacks because Bellamy was clearly torn up after it. That’s a huge character development moment without a REAL explanation. Fingers crossed!

  3. I gotta confess, this was my least favorite episode of the season, probably because it only showed Arkadia and boooring tactics and war talk (I’m here for the emotions guys and the grounder capital setting is so.much.cooler). I have to agree with Greg tho, I was all JUST FRICKIN’ RUN HIM OVER, KANE too in that scene. Like, I’m NOT liking Bellamy this season, but I don’t want him to die either, so maybe Kane could have just run him over a liiiittle bit? The thing is, I think we’d all hate him a little more if the writers had shown the massacre he was a part of (I certainly didn’t feel terribly sad for Finn when he shot all those people), so I’m thinking maybe they didn’t show it so we’d accept it when he’s on the ‘good’ side again? Either that or there will be some flashbacks at some point, because otherwise it’s just a little out of character for the writers. So yeah, not a huge fan of Bellamy right now, but I’m sort of ignoring the incredibly horrible stuff he did because I’m blaming the writers and I NEED TO LIKE SOME PEOPLE NOW THAT EVERYONE I LIKE IS DYING DAMMIT. Oh and yes, surprisingly huge fan of Kane this season too.
