Amidst all of the political machinations at Arkadia and back at Polis, the true threat is in the form of ALIE. As an AI with a fundamental disconnect from humanity, ALIE threatens the lives of every single character, just by continuing to exist.
Is it just me, or does Octavia look noticeably more similar to her old season 1 self than usual? Gone is most of the Grounder warpaint, the warrior clothing, and her Grounder hairstyle. What's going on with her? Is this a consequence of Lincoln's recent death, somehow?
Bellamy and Clarke, together again. It's been a while since these two were last face to face and, if we remember correctly, they didn't exactly end things on a good note (namely, Bellamy handcuffed Clarke and Clarke escaped by tazing him). Can they put aside their differences and work together to help Raven?
The official episode synopsis notes that Jasper grows angrier. Can't saw we blame the guy. He's struggled all season, depressed and angry. He thought he'd found a solution with the City of Light, but it turns out that option's not so rosy after all.
Last we saw Jasper, he was screaming at Clarke to get in the truck and driving Raven away from the swarming ALIE-brainwashed followers back at Arkadia. Where did he drive them to? What place is safe for this group?
If Niylah's still got her bracelet/cuff (scavenged from the bracelets torn off and left behind by the delinquents back in season one), that means she might be able to help with Raven's plan to deactivate the ALIE chip in her head. Is that why Niylah is around again?
Bellamy is basically a mess right now -- hated by his sister, distrusted by basically everyone in the group. Will he be willing to come around and allow Niylah, a Grounder, to help the group with Raven?
