The 100 6×02 Season 6, Episode 2, aired May 7th on The CW
This episode was dark AF. Wow.
We start with a flashback to the original Eligius Mission to Sanctum over 200 years ago. Things go haywire when the dad goes nuts and kills everyone, including his daughter, Josephine (who appears to share a name with the author of the Red Sun children’s book, or she survives and writes it herself). It’s incredibly tragic and gives a glimpse into the severity of the new planet’s plant toxin.
Take the bridge
Back in the first episode of this season, we saw the drop ship take off from Sanctum. In this episode the drop ship tries to take over the Eligius ship and it gets real crazy real quick. The four people in the ship know the codes to the Eligius ship. they gas everyone, and take over. They also make a note of Octavia’s red blood. Thankfully, Diyoza leaves one of them alive so they can get some answers about Sanctum because that place is BONKERS!
This girl is all drama all the time. She is clearly trying to punish herself for her actions, but isn’t ready to take responsibility. In Octavia’s mind, everything she did was to lead her people to a new life. Since she was never able to do that, she still carries the weight of her choices in the bunker with zero closure. She begs for a warrior’s death, but Abby feels she needs to live with what she has done. We agree. Also, she was smack talking Monty and that is NOT okay.
I get it. Clarke has done some messed up stuff to save the people she loves. She (and we) are reminded of that every episode, but in this episode we get to see Clarke turn on herself. During her toxin hallucination, Clarke hears her mom telling her to kill herself. It’s incredibly painful and hard to watch, but the idea that Clarke’s hallucination tells her she should die is heartbreaking. Clarke has made mistakes, but she is a hero.
Diyoza and Raven
This is such an unlikely team up, but they have a great dynamic. Raven’s “softness” (as Diyoza puts it) is a great balance to Diyoza’s savage approach. Raven knows that Diyoza is doing what needs to be done, but she doesn’t have the stomach to do what Diyoza does. Spending her time in space where they were safe meant she didn’t go as dark as the Bunker crew. It would be helpful to see these learn from the other one. Also, shout-out to Madi’s entrance. That was boss.
Raven and Shaw
This is so sad. Raven has such a tragic track record when it comes to love. We agree with Shaw – Raven deserves happiness and we hope she can find it.
Face your demons
The toxin takes hold of everyone on Sanctum and it’s dark and super tense. Emori goes first and stabs Murphy. Echo starts hearing stuff in her head about her former spy days and gives herself a tranquilizer to quiet the voices. Jackson and Miller somehow share a hallucination about bugs and Bellamy and Clarke gas them. It’s super freaky and gives us major Teen Wolf “Motel California” vibes in the best way possible. Sometimes the scariest things are your own deepest, darkest thoughts.
Bellamy, Clarke and Murphy
These three have the most screen time with their hallucinations. Murphy seems like the toxin isn’t getting to him as much as the others and he even saves Clarke from herself (and Bellamy). Bellamy rages the F out and nearly kills Murphy and Clarke. It’s so hard to watch them attacking each other. Bellamy gets knifed in the knee, Murphy nearly drowns and Bellamy strangles Clarke. It’s something they will definitely have to deal with in the next episode because it got dark and very, very personal. Also, Murphy has some sort of poison in his system. NOT GOOD.
Um, what? WHAT? But really, what? What is the deal with Sanctum? We have so many questions.
