Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin's relationship, whether enemies or friends or platonic soulmates, is the essence of The 100 and what it finds itself most rooted in.
And for a pairing that out of context looks explicitly romantic, Bellarke manage to turn even the most innocent of scenes into something deeply emotional and soft.
That could explain why this relationship has such a big following, with many fans connecting with the healthy connection between the two that is always developing.

There is a reason why The 100 always finds its stride when they have Bellamy and Clarke working together, even if they aren't always subtle about how ridiculous those two are and that is before they even started dating.
It just made sense to dedicate a slideshow exclusively to some of the most heartwarming and truly soft scenes between the two, with the abundance of them serving as another reminder that Bellamy and Clarke just make sense.
Which Bellarke moment from all five seasons do you consider the softest? What are you most excited to see between them during The 100 Season 6?
Clarke and Bellamy's Moment of Peace On "Pandora's Box"
No thoughts could do a scene like this any justice. Bellamy and Clarke finding a place of comfort and happiness with one another is what most relationships dream of having. Any moment that they share together is electric, beautiful, and warm because of how much they love one another. To call them soulmates is almost not an adequate enough explanation for what they mean to each other, and to us.
All The "Praimfaya" Inspired Bellarke Touching

Bellamy Trying To Take His Shot On "We Will Rise"

There are no words left for Bellamy being rolled out for Clarke in her time of need. Then they both said hi to each other as if they weren't trying to be absolutely adorable on purpose together.
Clarke and Bellamy Being Too Soft For Words On "The Four Horsemen"
Bellamy and Clarke are each other's strength, but this took it to a whole new level. Clarke watching Bellamy sleep and then him supporting him and them writing each other's names on that list. Before the end of the world that could probably be considered them renewing their platonic soulmate vows to each other.
Bellamy and Clarke Being Less Than Subtle On "Join or Die"
These two are ridiculous fools. Watch this hug and tell me that these two aren't embarrassing us all with this kind of behavior.

What even was this? These two were one drink away from giving into that sexual tension and becoming canon for seasons to come. But you know ... sometimes plot matters more than relationships, right?

It might be heartbreaking to literally see the moment when Clarke realizes that Bellamy doesn't know that she survived all this time because of him, and yet it is just as soft at the same time.
No Words Needed During "The Tinder Box"
There is this conversation happening about how the romantic male love interest just needs to be able to give "that look" and immediately everyone falls into their emotions with him. This is it, this is that look. Bellamy nails it every single time, but there is something about this one that really stands out.
Bellamy The Hero During "Wanheda: Part Two"

Bellamy was a few seconds away from yelling that Clarke was tiny and precious to everyone in that room. The way he instinctively kept checking in and protecting her was a dream come true to just about everyone.
Clarke Being All of Us During "Contents Under Pressure"
Clarke didn't do anything that everyone else wasn't thinking of doing. She really was all of us in this soft little sequence.
Clarke Letting Emotions Take Over Her "Exit Wounds"
The best thing to come out of The 100 Season 5 was all those not so subtle touches of Clarke's emotions. Even more so, much of that emotion was connected to Bellamy and her struggle to deal with their reunion after she created an idea of what it would be like in her head before he came back.
There is no doubt in anyone's mind that Clarke expected everything to be exactly the same, much like the audience did with most of the season, and watching her deal with all the changes was cathartic in a way. It let the fans deal with the change by tracking Clarke's jealousy at the same time.

These two always find a way to make a shared look feel brand new and sweet.
Clarke and Bellamy Baring It All On "Hakeldama"

Bellamy and Clarke's First Hug During "Human Trials"
If you let these two touch, they will show you exactly how it is done. It wasn't until Bellamy and Clarke that we realized exactly how valuable hugs can be, with this becoming their annual tradition because it seems like this is the most touching they can get in with one another and they take advantage of that well.

These soft looks and glances all throughout the episode? None of us were worthy.
Bellamy Crashing From Space For Clarke During "Sleeping Giants"
This scene speaks well on its own so I will only say this, Bellamy and Clarke constantly showing how much they mean to the other is a move that will never get old. Bellamy was always a man of action, but sometimes you want to hear exactly how important Clarke is to him, even after six years of him trying to be better through only the memory of her.
Clarke Choosing Her Priorities Wisely During "Praimfaya"
There was so much touching. Too much touching. All the touching. Honestly, this entire episode lingered on a whole "what might have been theme" that Clarke and Bellamy took in stride.
They knew that they were about to face their biggest separation yet, and the underlying reflection on what they could have if they just make it to space together was brutal to deal with. Just imagine the way Clarke must have replayed it over and over while she was making those daily radio calls to Bellamy from the ground.
Bellamy's Shift for Clarke On "Earth Kills"
This was just scraping the surface with Bellamy starting to realize that Clarke wasn't who he thought she was, the same that he came to terms with the fact that he can't pretend to be this evil guy anymore. It was all fitting into place, and that place was them working together.
Also, it was hauntingly beautiful the way that Clarke sang as she ended Atom's life, and the way that Bellamy was entranced just like the audience was.
Bellamy and Clarke's Leader Date During "Fog of War"

Bellamy Trying To Be Subtle During "The Calm"
Bellamy trying to keep it casual is the best failure of all time, and we all love to see him try to keep it cool.

Bellamy and Clarke Together Forever During "Damocles – Part Two"
It is symbolic that The 100 Season 5 was the end of Book One and it was all about Bellamy and Clarke facing their next challenge together. Nothing can steer me from the knowledge that this is Bellamy and Clarke's story, it always was and it always will be. There is a reason every season finale ends by touching on their connection to one another at that point in time.
Clarke and Bellamy Staying Centered During "Heavy Lies the Crown"
Sometimes it is all about the way that these two look at each other. There isn't always that need for words because they find that understanding when they know the other is on the same wavelength as them.
Bellamy and Clarke's Search For Comfort "Perverse Instantiation – Part Two"
Only the best of pals hold hands to stay sane. Clarke looking for that comfort and knowing that she would find in Bellamy's touch is above and beyond what our hearts could handle.
Bellamy Looking After Clarke On "Spacewalker"
Blink and you will miss it, but this scene where Bellamy cradled Clarke's head in front of Murphy was in a league of its own.
Clarke Telling Bellamy The Truth On "Day Trip"
Fun Fact: Originally during their little day trip Bellamy asked Clarke to run away with him during this scene. That knowledge sometimes haunts me, or maybe it always does.
Bellamy and Clarke Feeling at Home On "Pandora's Box"
Six years later and it is like these two never parted from one another.

Bellamy Knowing What is Important On "Echoes"
I'm just going to leave this right here and let you ponder on what was the normal only a few seasons ago. The way that Bellamy runs to save Clarke, the way that she finds support in his arms. You can't make this stuff up, although sometimes it feels like we did.

Clarke and Bellamy spent their time together during The 100 Season 3 Episode 12 just giving each other meaningful glances and self-sacrificing choices. What even was that?

Sometimes just watching these two walk into a war, side by side, is an oddly comforting view. They lean on one another from the very beginning, and you can't help but pull strength from that.
Bellamy Letting the Six Year Radio Call Truth Sink In On "Damocles – Part Two"
As mentioned before, Clarke's radio calls meant a whole lot more than we initially were allowed to believe. There was that lingering moment where Clarke realized that Bellamy didn't know, which means even more when we get this scene with Bellamy's interactions with her shifting based on that new information.
This soft moment did a good job of delivering on the idea that Bellamy learning how much he meant to Clarke all this time is changing his perception of ... just about everything?
Clarke's Number One Weakness During "Perverse Instantiation – Part One"
Somehow ALIE knew that Clarke's number one weakness would be Bellamy Blake in danger. Also somehow this pure scene where Bellamy saves the day and immediately reaches to comfort Clarke is not talked about the way that it should.
