    Top review. This episode was a bit more low key, but it did a great job with the characters. I’m not liking this Finn, he’s only known Clarke for like 20 days, yet he’s willing to walk away from a terrified trapped woman who he can absolutely save to try to save someone who may already be dead, I’m sure Clarke would understand! Also, how did she get up there!? Just how? About time those two background characters/red shirts had something happen to them. That guy deserved to die for that pathetic attempt of tying the rope; one knot for abseiling down a cliff, you’re just asking for trouble!

    I still don’t trust Murphy, part of me thinks he could be playing a long game, and we’re not going to see the traditional redemption arc with him. Could be wrong though, and I hope I am, he’s hilarious the actor is very good. Isiah Washington is such a top actor, he’s was brilliant this week. I’m interested to see where Jaha is taken too, that City of Light sounds interesting! Lindsay Morgan was fantastic too, like you said, she brings such a realism to Raven, and you can really feel for her.

    The Clarke and Anya stuff was great too. Anya is so awesome; she ripped a tracker out of her arm, with her teeth…. with her freaking teeth! My word. That fight was amazing, it was great to see Clarke show us how badass she is again, and that she can handle herself. The fight was extremely well done, you could feel every hit, especially when Anya slashed Clarke’s arm and stomach, the sound effects really make it seem real! Plus when Clarke was on top of Anya laying several punches into her face; you could just feel every punch. That has to be one of the best and most brutal fights I’ve seen on TV! It was brilliant.

    Part of me doesn’t think Anya is dead, though it may be a bit of denial! I was just starting to like Anya in Reapercussions, and then here too, so I’ll be sad if she if gone. The only “happy returns” Clarke is going to have at Camp Jaha is with Bellamy and Octavia; she’s not going to be happy with the ark people at all now!

    I think we’ll see more Mount Weather action next week, though sadly that would mean more Jasper ugh. He’s the only main character I’ve never liked. I hope we see more of Monty and Miller. I want to know what they’re doing to Lincoln as well! I like Lincoln! He better be okay in the end. Though I sense it’ll get worse before it gets better for him. That program probably isn’t going to be anything nice! I look forward to next week…

      Apologies for the late reply,haven’t have only seen this now. I noticed you haven’t commented on any other articles so I was wondering if you’re still watching? What do you think of the plot as it nears the conclusion of Season 2?

        Yeah I keep missing the articles when they go up, I only see them days after they’ve gone up so I haven’t been commenting. I am still watching, sad it’s nearly over, there’s only like 3 episodes left now! I think it’s all setting up nicely for another big war, but part of me thinks they won’t go that way this time, the writers are very clever and I think they’ll pull the rug from under us somehow. I’m very happy Bellamy has been given more screen time and his own plot; he’s going all kinds of badass in that mountain! I think he’s been good with Maya, and she’s become a bit more likable and fleshed out now, I like her dad. I love what they’re going with Clarke, Octavia and Lincoln too. This series has been a bit slower at times, given that it’s 3 episodes longer it has more time to breathe, and it’s done a great job with all of its characters. I’m happy we’re seeing more of Grounder culture and seeing more Grounders, I love Indra. I like what they’re doing with Octavia being her second, she’s really come on from series 1! Yeah so it’s all building up in a great way, it’s such a consistent series an has been such high quality so far. I’m looking forward to seeing where they take Clarke. The most recent episode was brilliant. How about you, are you liking the way it’s going? I’m going to make sure I catch your articles from now to the end!

          Yes I am loving it, gave this weeks episode a 9/10. The quality has been very high and I love the themes they’re incorporating throughout this season. Sad to see it have a break but this season has been a blast!
