    Top article :) I loved Bellamy’s Bruce Willisesque badassery here, being pushed by a fireball instead of engulfed by it aside, he had the best scenes in the episode. It brought back the unpredictability and ramped up the tension again. This whole episode felt like it went back to series 1 in terms of its breakneck pace and the tension it built up, as series 2 has slowed down somewhat on those front (which isn’t a criticism, it’s just focused on other things and has been equally awesome) and I loved it. I love how Indra knows about Lexa and Clarke knowing about the missile, and just couldn’t care less. I seriously love Indra now, if she dies I’ll be gutted aha! I love what they’re doing with both Clarke and Octavia, separately and together. They’ve both undergone such large development in different ways. Octavia is looking for somewhere to belong and seems to have found that with the help of Lincoln and Indra. Whilst Clarke is learning to be a good leader and what i takes to be one with the help of Lexa, but I can’t help but question whether she’s chosen the wrong person to model herself on. It was good to see her confront Lexa about shutting off her emotions, and say that she can’t do it anymore. Emotions are what make Clarke a great leader, and it’s nice to see her returning to her old self from before Finn died. She is wiling to make the tough calls, but she isn’t prepared to use her people like that again and sacrifice them. It’s these differences that make Clarke and Lexa’s dynamic so interesting. I can’t wait for next week, where the two part finale starts, Bodyguard of Lies was one of the best episodes of this already strong series, and I hope it can’t finish it off with a bang. That Grounder army is huge, Mount Weather doesn’t a chance if a full on war starts! I love Cage, he’s a cracking villain, and the actor who plays him is brilliant. His look of panic at the end of the episode when Emerson says they have no more defenses apart from the door is just great. He’s been a great addition and it’ll be a shame when he inevitably gets killed at the end of the series.

      Yes I agree, definitely, this episode was very high-paced, because Season 1 wasn’t as long as Season 2, they didn’t have as much time to rank up the tension and action, but with Season 2, they’ve slowly ignited the audiences tension. I can’t wait for the next two episodes, but it will be a massive shame to see the show end, Season 3…come quicker!

        Yeah I think we’ll have a longer wait for Series 3, probably near the end of 2015, maybe the start of 2016. They got these two series out in pretty quick succession, so I think it’ll be a bit longer until we get the next one. I hope I’m wrong though, it’s horrible waiting for shows to come back! Especially american shows, waiting for the UK to show them, because they’ve already started in America! I’m interested to see how they’ll lead us into Series 3 at the end of Series 2, like they did last year with the Mount Weather Quarantine. I think it’ll be something to do with the city of light, how about you?

          Yes, I think it’ll be about Jaha going to the City of Light, and I think they’ll connect that with Clarke, but something different than just an evil Government sort of thing, The 100 writers are always very unique, I’m excited. :)
