It falls on deaf ears?? Seriously?
I'm hoping in the next episode Lexa will some how redeem herself or reveal that her betrayal was some sort of trick against the MM, but I don't think so and that's disappointing. I hated the poor character and plot development the writers choose, it was illogical and poorly written. I can't believe that they turned a strong leader into a coward. It does not benefit Lexa's people to make the choice she did. They pretty much could have once and for all taken over the MM ppl and be done forever with any further kidnapping, killing and wars. Lexa choose to trust the MM over Lexa? Makes no sense. I've decided that Lexa has a mental illness and is not fit to lead her people. Hopefully, her people will realize Lexa's weakness and kill her to replace her with some one that will help the Sky people. Anyways, I'm not looking forward to watching this show anymore and I don't think that any amount of genius writing will help repair the damage done.
i'm afraid Lexa does not appear neither the next episode Official Description, nor in the Cast List. I can't believe this amazing show we love SO much has decided to just make us so angry and depressed in the finale. It's effing unbelievable :-(
As always there were tons of funny moments.I knew that Andy was pretending to asleep when Haley told him if he liked her it was okay. I am sure by seasons end they will be together.I liked the Cam, Mitchell and Lily scenes, especially when they were all singing to each other. Lily singing back that she could understand them even though they are singing, was funny.Manny, Luke and Phil trying to stop the drone was a comedy of errors.I liked the end when every one gave their own slogans to Jay. I do not recall them as they were all said so fast but I know I liked Haley's.
Andy pretending to be asleep would not be something Andy (as we know him) does as he's too innocent. He likely was actually just kind of drugged out. Also, like Lilly singing back to Cam and Mitchell but I don't remember Mitchell being musically inclined.
The quote of Dwight D. Eisenhower, "If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking is freedom". I took that quote more as a reflection of what the United States is becoming, or really what Obama wants us to be, a socialist state totally dependent upon government. Then the government will have supreme power with us lacking the very basics of freedoms. That quote actually hit the nail on the head.
That snowball has been rolling for years now and I don't see it stopping any time soon.
Another crucial aspect of the problem. It makes no sense to sacrifice a proven, fruitful, trusted, strategic alliance for short term tactical gain. All of this head over heart nonsense is just a way to deflect us from what really happened. Drama Over Character and Logic. Way NOT to go, 100 Writers :-(
And Kudos to Amanda for being the ONLY reviewer who noticed the shaky logic in the supposed Head Over Heart argument. Of course, this argument is not Lexa's, but the 100 writers :-(
But Kudos to Amanda for being the ONLY reviewer who noticed the shaky logic in the supposed Head Over Heart argument. Of course, this argument is not Lexa's, but the 100 writers :-( I think it's nuts how everyone's buying into this "Lexa chose her head instead of her heart" thing. Mount Weather has been a long-term strategic threat to the grounders for years. I wish someone would explain to me how letting such a strategic threat continue, when you actually, for the first time ever, are THAT close to terminating it, qualifies as "choosing from the head"? All the tactical sacrifices, like what happened in Ton DC, made sense only when the goal was strategic victory. How is getting back even 250 caged grounders home (after sacrificing 250 at Ton DC) a strategic victory? If the plan had gone wrong, and this was all Lexa could salvage, I would understand it. But the plan was working- the power was down, the door was open, and the RATIONAL choice would have been to take out Mount Weather once and for all. Choosing from the head would be Lexa telling Clarke that this was NOT a rescue mission. That Lexa would be willing to sacrifice all the caged grounders, AND the 44, to be able to eliminate Mount Weather as threat forever. THAT would be choosing from the head (AND a betrayal of Clarke, but a betrayal that made SENSE). Instead, we are supposed to buy that Lexa, the commander of a Warrior culture with no higher value than courage in battle, just give up her first and only chance to free the 12 tribes from Mount Weather and its reapers, and just slink away. And we all fall for this logical sleight of hand and say: Lexa chose her head instead of her heart. Lexa was smart. She must know that whatever promises for the future Cage or Dante made are worth nothing. That the veil will be up again, that the technologically superior Mountain men will continue to be a threat, and that she lets slip by her only chance to eliminate it, and is willing to continue to live in its shadow, is simply absurd- I wouldf like to see ONE historical precedent of a great leader / general who made the same un-strategic, short term decision. And if the logic is that now the Mountain men will get all the bone marrow they need from the sky people, and will not need the grounders anymore, that's short sighted too, since the Mountain Men see the grounders as savages, and once they've eliminated the sky people for bone marrow tand get OUT of the mountain, they will of course NEED to eliminate the grounders so THEY can live in peace OUTSIDE. It's even worse now the Mountain Men don't NEED the grounders alive- they could arm missiles with biological "veil" warheads, for instance, or use a new tech Final Solution and wipe the grounders out entirely, since they have NO reason to co-exist peacefully with them. And with the loss of the alliance, Lexa has lost also the Sky People Tech support. NO SENSE. Another crucial aspect of the problem. It makes no sense to sacrifice a proven, fruitful, trusted, strategic alliance for short term tactical gain. All of this head over heart nonsense is just a way to deflect us from what really happened. Drama Over Character and Logic. Way NOT to go, 100 Writers :-( I'm so angry and depressed- not with Lexa, but with who wrote her- HE/SHE, the writer, is the BIG BETRAYER, not Lexa. This is just SO depressing. I don't think I've ever been so angry at a TV show I love so much! I don't think tho that we'll see Lexa next episode. She's not in the official description of next episode, and she doesn't appear in the Cast List. I think she'll will make at least 1 guest appearance next season. And I hope, when they meet again, that Clarke takes her out- and I don't mean on a date :-( I would have gone into the whole LGBT aspect of throwing away the Kiss like this but it was dealt with very well by SaturnaliaGirl.

Thanks for the kudos, Jill! It is definitely a controversial decision, and one I did not see coming. Overall, I thought the episode was fantastically done. But I do think we need more information on what went into Lexa's decision. Because, while it does save her people, it breaks a beneficial alliance with the Sky People, who also have weapons and technology. Not to mention, there is no guarantee that the Mountain Men will keep up their end of the bargain. With the Arker bone marrow they will be outside the mountain, and still have missiles. Seems dangerous to trust someone who once used your people so savagely. But I think we need more information before we make up our minds or write anyone off. We have to remember that we weren't privvy to the conversation that led to Lexa making the deal. We don't know what was said or what threats were made. The writers know what they are doing and I think we have to see where this is going. It is a controversial move, and I am sure they knew that. I have a feeling all will be revealed and it will make sense for the long-term story. The showrunners/writers love Lexa, so they are not going to engage in baseless character assassination. Something is coming!

Great episode.I am glad that Deacon finally told Rayna that he has cancer. I was really not surprised by her reaction. I hope the show does not kill off Deacon. I think that Rayna will do all she can to help Deacon. Like almost everyone, I think that Maddie will be a match. Possibly Rayna.I really like Caleb he is hot and seems like a really nice guy. I like him and Scarlett together. I was a little mad that Gunnar was jealous. I am not sure if Gunnar and Scarlett are end game or not. I just hope he lets her be happy with Caleb. I did laugh too when Gunnar was coming up with all the band names. I also laughed when Avery and Gunnar each said a word out loud. I too liked Luke this week.I am getting annoyed with Will as well. He is a closeted gay man that has hatred for other gay men. He needs to change his ways soon and finally be himself. I see him standing on a railroad track again in the future playing chicken, like he did before if he does not come to terms with things very soon.I can not stand Jeff and if Layla keeps him around I fear that she will also go down a bad path.Oh Teddy you are going to lose your girls and your job very soon!
I saw the pilot and nothing interested me at all. I did not find it interesing. Boring for me. Bring back the real CSI I hope they will renew CSI
