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).
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.
Been hoping to see some advanced sci-fi technology stuff. However, I'm not sure if they have any...? Might have to re-watch some StarGate eppies for that. LoL
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 was really surprised so many people volunteered right after the tape got aired.
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.
The only real history they mentioned was in the pilot ep... apparently it was cobbled together from iirc a dozen or so space stations that existed.
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.
Agreed/ Though i liked the flashbacks for Octavia and her brother, i really wished they had some action on the station.
And i did think that one 'grounder' may have been a savior for her..
Would be cool if they did a Game Of Thrones & started killing off the good guys.
i kinda figured, i was being facetious (i think i spelt that right),
they did get rid of that punk (ya know bellamy's right hand man) a few episodes ago, and then there's the president's son and that little girl
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.
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.
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.
