Equally, Clarke herself has confirmed that she’s incapable of imagining a world with out Bellamy in it—she’s already didn’t kill him when the destiny of humanity was at stake as soon as earlier than, and at the same time as late as Season 6, she names leaving him behind in Polis as her biggest remorse. The concept that Clarke wouldn’t no less than attempt to seek out one other technique to shield Madi that didn’t contain murdering the opposite most vital individual in her life is insane. On the very least, the Clarke we’ve spent seven seasons watching would have aimed for his hand as an alternative of going for the kill shot straight away. (And, you realize, really retrieved the sketchbook that began all of this.)
Moreover, all of us already know that Invoice Cadogan is an untrustworthy charlatan working a centuries previous rip-off, so it’s not like Bellamy’s supposedly principled dedication to save lots of humanity by providing up Madi to his new cult buddies really means something. We might not really agree with Clarke’s choice to shoot her BFF, however everyone knows she’s not flawed about what the Second Daybreak will do to her daughter as soon as they get their fingers on that e-book. And the worst half is, on some stage, Bellamy should know that too.
It was troublesome sufficient understanding how Bellamy may so simply betray his buddies at the end of “Etherea” by exposing their lie in regards to the Flame after which calmly watch them get consequently. It’s virtually not possible to understand how he may stand subsequent to Clarke and attempt to argue that the chance to Madi’s security is price it, as a result of he has immediately discovered a brand new whacked out faith that can save humanity? And to reference their “collectively” chorus—which has seen them commit genocide and threat the way forward for their folks at one another’s sides—in an effort to get Clarke to relent? Couldn’t Bellamy have no less than died for refusing at hand over the sketchbook and doom his greatest good friend’s daughter? That, no less than, would have given his loss of life some actual that means.
And whereas Bellamy completely deserves higher than the ending this present gave him, the opposite unlucky lesson of “Blood Large” is that The 100’s ladies do too. At this level, the present’s apparent enjoyment of forcing its feminine characters to make not possible decisions and endure repeated private betrayals within the identify of gritty storytelling each single season doesn’t appear so groundbreaking anymore; it simply feels gross. Now Clarke is not going to solely should bear the burden of killing her greatest good friend, she’ll should face Octavia and Echo, who will possible by no means forgive her for her decisions, even when they handle to grasp why she did what she did.
