Bellamy looks at Clarke during Hakeldama
The 100 Season 3 Episode 5 is known for its emotionally charged exchange between Bellamy and Clarke, with so much of it coming from the way that they looked at each other. There are no words to describe how well executed this was, proving that allowing your leads to not only feel emotions but to openly talk about them from time to time is where most of the show's success can be sometimes.
Bellamy looking at Clarke during Join or Die
There are not enough words to describe how monumental this sequence was. The focus on Bellamy as he wanted the last thing he saw (possibly ever) to be Clarke speaks volumes of the way he cares about her. The camera work aided Bob Morley's acting as he gave us one of the most subtextual scenes in Bellamy and Clarke history.
Bellamy looks at Clarke during Unity Day
This was some next level flirting and it honestly seems like Bellamy and Clarke would have hooked up that night. As great as Bellamy's emotional looks are, the way he can flirt from time to time is a piece of art in its own right too.
Bellamy looking at Clarke during Pandora's Box
The way Bellamy's looks can feel like a physical hug is happening is a skill worth noting. Seeing Clarke in front of him without danger looming over their reunion allowed the focus to be on the way he looked at her. It was soft and comforting because it held so much disbelief that she was there in front of him. This was a look worth looking back on, especially when their relationship drifted a bit during The 100 Season 5, this was a moment that showed that their love for each other wasn't actually lost.

Keeping Clarke alive might be difficult, but Bellamy is always up for the job. There is a certain payoff in not having your characters always surrounded by doom and gloom.

All the touching in this episode couldn't even compare to the eye contact that was going on the whole time. Bellamy may not have known that this would be the last time he saw Clarke for a while, and yet he still put it all on the line. The looks were so prominent in these scenes because of how much love poured out of them.
