    Ya know, all of this buddy buddy stuff 'tween the Sky People and the Grounders just has to be too good to be true. Wonder how long before it blows up?

    Good episode, though.

    Do gorillas live over 100 years ? And dont they need femail and male sex to make baby gorillas ?

    And why are the grounders so deem dumb ? Think of the potential they could get for farming and Technologies from the sky people. Just make friends with them and start to build new futuure for there own good. But not lets attack them and if they attack back then we need more blood for blood like they are the sweet puppies that dont do härm to others

    Who says there aren't gorillas in the area? There may be a sizable population of them. Nothing says that one had to be from 100 years ago.

    The Grounders only seem dumb if we measure them by the standards of our modern, technological society. In other ways, such as the ability to survive and flourish in a jungle environment, they are way ahead of the Sky people.

    Well after nüke war the survival of apes is a bit weird. Especially when humans have technology to protect them from radiation.

    In the framework of this show's universe, it does add up. Since there are Grounders, completely independent of Mt. Weather's technology, as well as horses, mutated deer and other life forms, clearly the Earth can support life after the nukes. Why not a gorilla?

    I really liked this episode, for the most part, anyway. Loved Lincoln and Bellamy working together to try to infiltrate Mt. Weather. Things don't work out as planned though, and Lincoln succumbs to his addiction to the red Reaper drug, leaving Bellamy to get caught by the Mt. Men. I actually liked that Lincoln wasn't miraculously cured of his addiction virtually overnight, and that he faltered and fell under the influence of the drugs the Mt.Men had him addicted to again. Addiction isn't an easy thing to overcome, and I liked that the show depicted that here.

    A group of Grounders visit Camp Jaha. I really liked how cynical Jaha was regarding the alliance with the Grounders. He seemed to be proven right when a fight breaks out between the two groups. Kane gets it under control though, and the rest of the visit seems to go well. I really liked the part where Octavia tries to fight a Grounder. She gets beaten pretty badly, but her unwillingness to give up caught Indra's attention. I liked that Indra asked Octavia to be her Second. Kane then basically asks her to be a spy.

    Clarke is at a meeting with Lexa and some other Grounders. They argue over whether they should wait for Bellamy to infiltrate Mt. Weather or just march on the Mountain immediately. I didn't much care for Clarke getting chased through the woods by some Grounder whose brother died fighting the kids, and later on get chased along with Lexa by a Gorilla. The main reason for the Gorilla chase seemed to be so that Lexa and Clarke could develop a closer/stronger bond. Like someone mentioned above, why would the Grounders have their meeting in a place so close to the Gorilla's feeding grounds.

    Loved Jaha and Murphy's trip to Wells' grave. I really liked the interaction between the two. Jaha's reasoning for wanting to leave, and abandon the kids trapped in Mt. Weather, is that he feels that sometimes you have to sacrifice the few to save the many, and that good can come out of even the darkest acts (this is something repeated pretty much throughout the season/series). He tells Murphy about the City of Light. He wants to find it, and lead the everyone there. He thinks it can be his second chance. Jaha gathers a group of people to travel to the City of Light with him, and asks Murphy to go along as well.
