Searched but I did not see any previous threads about this in the search results. It's pretty good so far but they need to end the constant teen-angst crap & get more into the actual story for me to continue to watch it. Has potential, just hoping they don't do a Terra Nova by having too much teeny-bopper storylines crap in it, LoL. The preview for the upcoming episodes did look like they have a good amount of action. :)

Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.

I haven't seen it, or heard of it, but based on the summary I think I may avoid it. Sending 100 teenagers to an abandoned planet to repopulate? How could it not be about teen angst?

Well yeah, it is, Lmao. :) Hopefully the CW will realize very quickly that they need much more for it to survive as a high enough watched series, than making a show mainly about teen- angst. LoL. :)

They didn't send the teens down to re-populate Earth themselves lol. They sent them down because they were expendable, and they wanted to know if the rest of the people on the space station would be able to survive without dying of radiation poisoning.

I like it so far. The teen romance stuff is annoying, but it's on the CW so I was prepared for it. I wish they didn't feel the need to set all the main teen characters up in love triangles(or other polygons) though. Other than teen love drama, I find the show pretty interesting.

Enjoying this more than I thought I would, okay the teen angst stuff could disappear. The casting is better than some of CW other new shows this season.

By far the biggest problem for me is the lack of thought put into the world building side of things, the station looks far too uniform for a space station cobble together from other space stations.

And the costumes, I could easily see scientist growing cotton in orbit and using that to make clothing but but getting the materials to make leather jackets, jeans, trainers/leather boots, sports bras for thousands of people, all seem a bit too far fetch to me. An having them all be die different colours is a waste of resources.

An as much as I like air locking people, for a station that is short of supplies, well that a tonne of water, oxygen, proteins you are sending overboard there people.

An let not get started on the whole bracelet design, I know I said it was a waste of resources to send them overboard, but for the designers of those bracelets, I think an exception could be made.

An you would think that during their attempts to save themselves after an atomic war that they would have save a few satellites with surface imaging capabilities.

You would also think that the station would be overflowing with plants for food and to filter the air.

This week episode was pretty good, the end

Psycho girl kill Wells with a single stab to the neck, brilliant, with her smilling and humming away as he choke on his own blood Awesome.

Bellamy showing the cowered he is.

Hopefully we will have a couple of weeks them building a community before the next disaster strikes, and may be Little Miss Psycho will thin the herd a bit before then, come on girl take Bellamy out, he deserves it.

Looking forward for the face off between Clark and her mum, the ***** may face some justice yet.

Is it really that easy to gut 2 fingers off like the little girl did there ?
I am amazed that the little girl didnt gut her self with that knife, as it needed to be lazer razor sharp to täke two fingers off from Wells that easy.

As there is no good scifi shows anymore, i watch what i get. Especially of the stupid scedule of the shows. Like TVD 2 episoodes then one week break and again 2 episoodes and now 3 weeks then one episoode and again break. Marvel shield is basically same with the breaks and ohter shows.

In the first episoode of the 100, in the end they show local earthlings in a preview. Second episoode ends with one guy with greepy mask and now third episoode there is nothing about that. When we will see the earthlings and are they all dumb woods people from the stone age ? Sticks and arrows, like Shepard sayed in SGA one of the episoodes with the technology block cheald with childer live in the age of 18 :D

I really enjoyed the third ep. This was also the first episode where I actually kind of liked Bellamy.
As I was watching the episode, I kept thinking that the little girl was going to reveal that she had killed someone on the space station or something, and that she would end up attempting to kill someone on Earth(especially after she saw Clarke mercy-kill the guy who got caught in the acid fog). She seemed really nice and sweet, but there seemed to be something a bit off about her(but that could have been because I kept thinking about a character on The Walking Dead). I didn't think that she would actually end up succeeding in killing anyone(especially in this episode). I thought she would get caught or stopped before she hurt anyone too seriously. I didn't expect her to try to kill Wells, and I was surprised that she actually ended up killing him. It was kind of sad since Clarke and Wells had just repaired their friendship, and he was just sitting there, not expecting the girl to hurt him or anything. Out of all the people on Earth who hated Wells because of his father, I wasn't really expecting that little girl to be that one that would kill him because of it. It was messed up, but it kind of brought a sense of danger to the show that wasn't there before this episode, and I liked that.

Next week's episode looks interesting, I'm looking forward to it.

Yea it seems any show on the CW is geared towards teens (other than Arrow)..

So far i have been enjoying it.. not as much as the tomorrow people, but a heck of a lot better than episodes of "Yet another show about vampires (supernatural, the originals, vampire diaries etc)..

That's what I was thinking; that maybe they are the descendants of people who hid out in Mt. Weather(or whatever that place they were supposed to go to for supplies was called). I hope we get to learn more about them sometime soon.

I really enjoyed the 5th episode. It's my favorite ep so far. There was a good balance between what was happening on the ark and what was happening on ground. For the most part, I find the stuff with the adults on the station more interesting than what happens on Earth with the teens, and this ep had a lot of space station focus. I'm also liking all the characters more and more every week(even Bellamy).

I enjoyed last week's episode, but I was a little disappointed with how they handled the aftermath of Wells' death. I didn't like that they skipped a week, but I guess they felt that it was necessary to speed up the Raven getting down to the planet part of the story.
I found everything that was happening on the ark this week really interesting and emotional. The Earth stuff was good too.

Another good episode this week. It actually good to have a show where the humans are shown off in a good way, the people volunteering to sacrifice themselves for the greater good, the teens finally working together to build the flares. Don't see this enough on TV nowadays. These humans still have some humanity left in them.

I love Raven and her leadership skills, hopefully she will balance out the Clark, Bellamy dual.

I love the arc stuff, the father sacrificing himself for the daughter was sad. Kane character has grown a lot during this episode but I do wonder what his motives are, it seems unlikely it was him that gave Bellamy the gun to kill the chancellor, so who did?

The bed talk was a bit naff and hoping they resolve the three way love triangle quickly.
An bellamy doing his duty to repopulate the planet by having threesomes. An he lack the guts to kill, which make me suspicious that he may not have pull the gun to kill the chancellor.

Looking forward to next week, meeting with the grounders, Octavia kidnapper/new lover, and of cause see the arc prep for evacuation to back to earth, I'm sure it won't be as simple as assigning seats and launching escape pods and shuttles and capsules. Wonder if further sacrifices will need to be made.

This show is going from strength to strength.

I was really surprised so many people volunteered right after the tape got aired. I also was wondering how that they could call the few dozen or so we saw in that one room the 300 they needed, unless there were dozens of other rooms..

hiring 300 extras would be expensive though.


I was really surprised so many people volunteered right after the tape got aired.

These people have been brought up with the knowledge that they are the only humans left and that they must survive at all costs, I'm surprise so many of the council members doubted that they wouldn't get volunteers and even thought there would be riots and attempted takeover of the station. All of which would undoubtedly cost them more oxygen and more time.

I would love to get some history on the ark through, may be that explains why they thought they would sacrifice their life and their parents life work.

Another good episode.

An a love triangle that doesn't wanna make vomit every 10 seconds like the Star Crossed one does.

I wanna know about the gounders. There a conflict brewing their, and is the one that kidnapped Octavia a villain or our teens protector.

Shame we didn't see more of the space station in the presence especially after the flares were spotted last week. Nice to have a bit of background on two of the characters through, shame we didn't at least some of the red shirts history before they gotten killed.

Bumper station time this week. Kate is one backstabbing slimy little ***** and probably the one that arrange Bellamy to kill the president.

I love the about face turn from Kane from the whole I'm going to keep this arc alive even if I have to kill everyone down to the last Adam and Eve, to barely able to keep himself together after killing 300 of them. Some great acting there from Cusick. An Washington performance when he shouted out that he just lost son was brilliant and powerful.

Octavia just became my new favourite character, the way she poison herself, I spent half the episode shouting at them to either poison Octavia or the grounder to get their antidote. Glad she was the one to eventually come up with the idea, after letting the torture gang torture grounder for hours but hey no one perfect.

I do wonder why amongst all the 100, the grounder has bonded to Octavia, hopefully it something like her looking like his daughter or something

Bellamy need better security on the door, everyone came and went as they please despite being told not to let anyone in.

I was right about there being a limited number of life rafts. Of cause if they smart they send everyone down to a location where they can eventually assemble ships to rescue the survivors.

Look like the love triangle is coming to the end.

Yep, I was waiting/hoping that Kane would throw himself into an airlock and Float himself, LoL. :)

Yeah Octavia has some balls, bigger than her brother's. I can see her kicking her brother's butt in the future & her taking charge of everything. :D

Maybe he likes Octavia because she's one of the very few that has been out walking around in the woods..., puppy love, etc.? Doesn't seem like many of the other 100 have gone much of a distance out into the woods, as far as I know...? Thinking that many of the 100 are probably too scared or too smart, to go far away from camp.

Maybe they can retro-fit an area of the station that's in space to somehow enter the earth's atmosphere & land safely? If they get 700 people off the station and by also including the 300 they already off'ed, they might have enough time/oxygen to come up with some sort of plan to get the rest down. Or maybe they'll just leave them up there & we can continue to follow their story.

I went from hating Octavia in the first episode to her being one of my favorite characters now. I think the grounder has crush on her. Bellamy has become one of my favorites too(his relationship with Octavia is one of the main reasons he's become a favorite of mine).

I really enjoyed all of the stuff on the Ark. It's nice to see Kate Vernon on this show. Loved Kane in the latest ep.

I think I'd rather they leave some of the main characters on the Ark longer and followed their story, instead of finding a way to get everyone down to Earth right away.

From flashbacks a few eps ago it looked like Terry chen (commander shumway) was the one who did that. BUT this weeks ep does make me wonder, was it Kate who put him up to it.??

Some great acting there from Cusick. An Washington performance when he shouted out that he just lost son was brilliant and powerful.

I think that was more cause he finally realized that the 100 were alive, and could not do anything else. but i agree his performance when letting it get known his son was dead, was great.


Octavia just became my new favourite character, the way she poison herself, I spent half the episode shouting at them to either poison Octavia or the grounder to get their antidote. Glad she was the one to eventually come up with the idea, after letting the torture gang torture grounder for hours but hey no one perfect.

I kind of thought it might have been her, since the grounder was smitten with her. Bit i did like it that he eventually said "thanks" to her in a sort of whisper..

Maybe she was the first female he has seen in a while who is not a grounder..?


I was right about there being a limited number of life rafts. Of cause if they smart they send everyone down to a location where they can eventually assemble ships to rescue the survivors.

You would have thought that life raft issue would have been something they dealt with before they sent the 100 down though.

The writers enjoy having their characters kill people by stabbing them in the necks. 3rd one so far on the show.

I know of only 4 folks who have Neilson boxes. Not one is single, all are married with kids. So to me married status does matter. Not sure on the race side though, but as with many things in life these days it does seem race still counts.

One can hope. Especially since how they left the arc, it was almost a guarantee of killing everyone left up there.


trigger happy Jasper ended any chance of peaceful existence with the grounders.

He does seem perpetually jittery, and at first i thought he still might have been under the Hallucinogens still, but the others eventually saw them as well..


Raven slowly realising she has lost the battle for Flinn heart to Clark. I'm sure that won't make bellamy jealous at all.

Actually i am thinking they are slowly pushing Clark from Finn TO bellamy.

I also wonder, is it cause of how well she played the conniving Ellen Tigh why she is now also playing the Conniving Dianne?

This show already got a second season of 13 episodes starting in the, they were offer a full 23 but the producers/writers only wanted 13. Which show CW has confident in this program, you don't move shows to the full and give 23 episodes and once CW shows get into second seasons they got a good chance of getting 3rd and 4th seasons.

I seen too many shows cancelled now that I'm kinda reluctant to start watching a new show as it'll more than likely not get renewed after the next season. I suppose I could tape it and wait and see what happens before I decide to watch it. Done that with Arrow this season. Watched all of season 2 in a few days there.

Another good episode. An clarke needs to use her M16 one handed more often.


I wonder how many of the 100 Lincoln could take out without them even noticing, given that he was able to plant a flower right in front of them without them noticing.

Raven is one scary chick,
Flin or one of the other characters: the bridge survive a nuclear war,
Raven "it won't survive me."


I reckon the mountain men have the survivors from the crash. Shame we didn't hear anything about the ark this week.

I did mean TV shows in general :D Just finished watching Arrow season 2 and I like how they didn't really end it on a major cliffhanger, but they kept it open so if it was cancelled it could have ended where ir was but also if it got renewed it was open to continue. Maybe other shows should take a leaf out of Arrows book on how to end the season. That way there won't be as many shows ending without a resolution if they get cancelled.

. Not really, actually someone did the maths and even the dirtiest bomb we could make, a cobalt device, earth would be habitable in as little 100 years, perfectly safe in 200 years.
Plus radiation wouldn't be spread evenly across the planet, there be low and high levels of radiation in different places. The grounders could have been luck enough to have been in a low radiation zone.

The highest death toll wouldn't come from radiation or even directly from the bombs themselves, it be from the nuclear winter that would occur and last for at least 2 year if not longer.

Exactly. The 100 and TP were imo their only Sci-fi focused ones. The others are all either vampire based, or Arrow. We know they ain't gonna kill their pop star (Arrow) nor the vamp ones since there are so many fans of them it seems. But the Scifi ones (the 100 and TP) are fair game. They already canned the TP, and though the 100 got a 2nd season it seems, whether it lasts beyond that is anyone's guess.

TP had very bad ratings, o.3 throughout April.
The 100 even without new episodes Arrow in support seem to be remaining stable at 0.5 to 0.6

What even more where TP got neutral to negative reviews, The 100 is getting great reviews from critics.

Have you watched The 100, I say the stories in The 100 have been more adult focused than teen focused.
TP lot were suppose to be teens, through the poor casting and poorer acting it was hard to tell that they were meant to be playing teens.

The biggest surprise for me -- they truly dare to go one step too far (in a manner of speaking that is), and show what happens when you drop a bunch of kids on a planet with no rules or regulations. And they start taking matters into their own hands.

I really liked the Ark parts of the latest episode; loved Kane. The Earth parts were ok.

I like Clarke well enough though, I think she's pretty cool when she's not playing doctor or angsting over Finn. I hate the Clarke/Finn/Raven drama(I hate love triangles in general though). Raven using Bellamy to try to get over Finn was predictable and eye-rolling to me. I liked Raven a lot better when she was on the Ark. I want to like Finn, but he's just so blah to me right now, that I don't care if he dies. If he lives he(and he probably will), he needs more character development outside of being a love interest (IMO). I wonder what happened to Monty(I like him and care about what happens to him lol)? I'm looking forward to the next ep. :)

Our little warrior princess isn't as powerful as I thought, it seems she just a local leader, perhaps just in charge of the local defence forces or state forces in our world, while these new guys are federal forces from some sort of central government.

I love the audacity of the chancellor plan, it should at least look spectacular, but just 2 days or less to prepare, tight planning there.

Yes the reapers look like they are cannibals, the question is who are they eating. An Lincoln said he captured a map from someone that map the cave, that unlikely to be our cannibals.

An I suspect the little princess and Lincoln had a thing in the past, I see another love triangle/quadrangle, Lincoln, princess, Octavia and Jasper.

Look like next season will involve our gang looking for a new home, why the arc survivors look for them and learn to survive.

Was it ever established for certain that the wreck was the drop ship rather than part of the Ark? It looked like some pretty big chunks broke off when the drop ship launched, we only saw the descent from a distance, and I don't think that Raven was able to find the black box in the wreckage. There were also fewer burned skeletons than I'd expect for a ship carrying several hundred people. It seems odd to build up Diana as an antagonist, and to establish that she has a very sizeable support base, only for her and her followers to be wiped out in a crash, especially with another group from the Ark coming to Earth.

That last part gave me an "Oh no, not LOST please? :eek:"-feel, though I'm nevertheless curious about these mysterious mountain men. They obviously have put the fear of god into the clans, and no doubt the Reapers to. Perhaps getting caught by them actually means never to be seen again.

And I don't think Finn and Bellamy are as dead as they want us to believe.

BUT its a Scifi show, so who knows.

The wideshot gave us a view of what the outburst of the rockets did to the surrounding area. I think if they made it outside, through that one tunnel Bellamy came through, they have gotten singed a little but perhaps they could have made it. I don't know... but I could be wrong and they did kill them both off. Too bad, cause I kinda liked Finn.

And the Arc-folk, now on the ground, so have no idea what they are in for.

Our warrior princess (so excited that is Dichen Lachman) seemed peeved she was being put aside by the overlords. :p She clearly isn't being held into hight esteem. Too bad, I had sincerely hoped women had gained some ground in that regard.

On Beauty and the Beast's surprise renewal:
In a cruel twist of fate, the widely panned drama Beauty and the Beast was the subject of more questions than any other show, thanks to one reporter who brought it up so many times during the session that Pedowitz offered to send him the box set. As for the reason Cat and Vincent managed to escape death this season, it essentially came down to the fact that Beasties be crazy (and also money): [The show] has a very engaged fanbase," Pedowitz said. "It has a very big international following. We brought it back because... it's a very profitable show for everybody." As for what's to come in Season 3, "[Cat and Vincent are] out in public. They're a couple. They have to find a life together. [Executive producer Brad Kern] has a really good place to go in terms of their discovering cases, working together as they go forward. He is a medical doctor in the show. And you know what? He'll get his license back." So it seems that CW does international viewing figures into account for some of it shows, or perhaps he was just to frighten of beasties to cancel it.

The only show I know that was ever said have been influence by foreign tv numbers, was 24, where one of FOX executives or the producers said that the huge numbers it pull in for the BBC was one of the deciding factors in renewing it. They sold the rights to Sky for a lot of money later on.

But back to CW it was interesting that I read this interview on TV.com

I don't like the way he's treating the kids as if they are second class citizens again after all they accomplished.

Well, if the commander's reaction is anything to go by then I have a feeling they aren't going to do anything to his body. Lincoln stated they wanted him to suffer like the people he killed, but since Clarke saved him from the ritual "blood for blood" punishment by stabbing him to death (--> seriously chilling moment, that had me holding my breath when realization dawned on me what she was going to do).

The Commander states: "It's done!", so blood has been spilled even if it was Clarke who spilled it and not the Grounders.

Most of the characters do wear jackets much of the time. But rarely do you see Clarke covering her chest up with anything. Which, is fine, if she's that type of girl. But she's not. She's smart, tough,well respected by her peers and easily able to stand toe to toe with just about anyone. She doesn't need to flash cleavage to get her way. It is so out of place with her character, which is why it stands out.

Yes, she more well endowed in this area than most. But there are many well endowed women who don't flash the amount of boobage Clarke Does. Lynda Carter, in the 70's "Wonder Woman" series is a good example. Lynda was far larger than Eliza ever thought of being. Aside from the Wonder Woman costume, when she was in ordinary clothes her breasts weren't even noticeable.

Maybe I'm just old fashioned to the extent that this is something I notice, but I just think in the circumstances the character lives in, more modesty would be appropriate. But I'm sure its great for drawing young male viewers the advertisers focus upon.

VampyreWraith

They're all wearing the clothes they had while they were on the Ark. Even if she wanted to dress more conservatively, Clarke doesn't exactly have the opportunity to go to the mall and shop for appropriate business attire or more conservative clothing, just because she's been put in a leadership position right now. Maybe once they deal with Mt. Weather, Clarke can go rummage through their stuff and try to find something more conservative to wear (but I still don't think she's dressed immodestly right now).

Almost every time The 100 facebook page posts something there's comments about Bellarke. Even when neither of them are in the photos that are posted. "Give us Bellarke" "If they don't give us Bellarke I'll stop watching" etc etc. I know the UK are a little behind, we've just had s2ep8. Did I miss an episode somewhere, or does something happen that explains this? Or is it some people wanting something that simply isn't there? It's starting to get annoying going into the comments and seeing all the we want Bellarke comments. and who thought up the name mash thing? It's becoming annoying these days.

I seem to get annoyed quite easily these days.

Bellarke something that some people want, they're just good friends on the show so far. All the Bellarke talk (or really any kind of obsessive shipping of characters) is the main reason I avoid social media and articles related to this show (and other shows with extremely vocal shippers demanding that their pairing happen). I personally don't want to see Bellarke happen, but I wouldn't hate it or anything, if they got together towards the end of the series.

Ah okay. I thought I missed something somewhere. I'm on the brink of unliking The 100 page. I'm tired of going into it and seeing every post with Bellarke Bellarke Bellarke all the bloody time. I like the show the way it is the now with all the action and very little romance so far. I hope they keep it that way. I mean they don't have to pair up their 2 main characters all the time. They can just be friends. It's quite tiresome. And let's face it, most writers suck at it anyways so they're better leaving well enough alone.

I completely agree. Clarke was involved in two love triangles last season (Wells/Clarke/Finn and Clarke/Finn/Raven). I really like that this season got rid of that. I really don't think that Clarke needs a new love interest right at the moment, and if she does get one, I hope that it's not Bellamy. I really wish they'd just leave them as friends. It's so rare for a show to have the good looking male and female main leads just remain really good friends, without trying to hook them up together at some point.

I have a rule. Shippers are nuts. Shippers see chemistry in the smallest thing. Some of them are way out that make no sense. I use to love W13. Their were people who shipped Claudia and Artie. That is sickening. The point is just because some crazy fans think something is there doesn't mean it will. Clarke does not seem Belamy like that and I don't she ever will. Look at how much they hated each other in the first half of S1. Mt. Weather has helped build a friendship but given what has happened to Finn, Clarke is too jaded at this point

Reading through comments on social media and in articles/interviews made by really aggressive shippers insisting that Charlie and Monroe become a couple on Revolution last season, made me decide stay away from those sorts of things in the future, so that I could enjoy the shows I was watching (especially when at one point, the showrunner actually tried to tease that something would be happening between the two during an episode late in the season, nothing actually happened on the show though, and they actually made it even more disturbing for the two to be together lol).

With the Kiss she shared with Lexa, some of those Bellarks are going to be peeved!

I had to think who Wells was. I remember now.Agreed. I like things the way they are. Plus Clarke has bigger things to worry about. And like you said, if she does then I hope it's not a main character. They don't always have to hook up with male/female leads all the time. They can be just friends.

Ya got that right Jel. I asked once where this was coming from and someone said "what? Didn't you see the hug?". I thought to myself, well yeah. It was a hug. You know, like I'm glad I didn't fry you to a crisp hug. Sheesh!!!

Wait! Claudia/Artie? Are you serious? That is disturbing. He was like a father to her. And there was the whole Myka/Pete thing they actually did do that came out of the blue which proves some writers completly suck at the whole romance angle.

Bellamy did betray them in the first season to save his own butt. I don't think she's quite forgotten that. I see them as reluctant friends which is turning into good friends after he helped her save the others. But nothing more. And I hope it stays that way.

Charlie/Monroe. Really? After he got her Father and Brother killed, kidnapped her mother and tried to kill them? Are people insane?

Yeah, and it wasn't even a crack-ship or whatever, where people thought that putting them together in fan-fiction or something, would be funny for some reason. They apparently had amazing chemistry and their scenes in season 2 were really hot (even that one brief scene in season 1 where he threw her in a prison cell showed that they had chemistry). And apparently Monroe was just misunderstood and not really responsible for anything he did during the first season, because he never wanted anyone dead, even though he was trying to have them killed for an entire season. Some even said that since season 2 was a bit different than season 1, what happened in season 1 shouldn't be considered canon. Even if the characters had "chemistry" not all chemistry is automatically romantic or should lead to a romantic relationship in a show.

Um okay, I'm slightly disturbed by that :S And how can you dismiss season 1 and make it non canon?

There are different types of chemistry between characters. It's not all romantic chemistry. Some people need to learn the difference. Anyways I've unliked The 100 page. With the UK being a few eps behind I was getting too much info on eps we haven't seen yet plus I'm getting tired of all the Bellarke, Clexa nonsense in almost evry post. Now some are mentioning Abby/Kane. I had to double check to make sure it was The 100 FB page or a dating page :S

I pretty much ignore any romantic liaisons between characters unless it is essential to the telling of the main story. If it gets to be too "in your face", I may stop watching a show altogether. I figure if it's not essential to the storyline, who gets together with whom is no more my business than who gets together with who at work, or any other setting.

Particularly with a show like this one, where half of the characters are basically raging balls of hormones on legs. Even this group, which on the whole, has acted surprisingly mature in their circumstances can't be immune from that stage of life.

Not sure lol, but a relationship between the two could have made more sense if all the killing and torture of friends and family members, along with the numerous counts of attempted murder, could just be wiped away.

Yeah, there are different types of chemistry, and people (even attractive men and women) can love each other and just be friends, without wanting to be in a romantic or sexual relationship.

It's probably best to keep away from the Facebook page if you're behind and don't want to know almost everything that happens before you get a chance to watch.

Well it's good that there's nothing between Clarke and Bellamy so I don't have to pretend or ignore anything :D

But yes they are quite mature. But I suppose they had to grow up with what they've been through.

Yep, but you can't ignore it just because you don't like it or want something else to fit better.


Yeah, there are different types of chemistry, and people (even attractive men and women) can love each other and just be friends, without wanting to be in a romantic or sexual relationship.

Contrary to popular belief men and women can be just friends without romance being involved. I wish more shows would do this instead of feeling pressured into geting the male/female main characters together. WH13 was good at it, till the screwed it all up in the last season.

I've unliked the FB page. I feel better about it now. I can just enjoy the show now without reading all the nonsense.
