The 100 3x11
So this week we have Jasper and Clarke on the run in the jeep. Jasper is clearly still pissed at Clarke- I almost forgot that little thing was never addressed. And Octavia tells Bellamy what she thinks- he doesn't get to be one of the good guys just because he turned in Pike. She says he was hurting (because of Clarke leaving?) and lashed out- and people died as a result of his choices. Um, pretty much yeah. O's about to take off when Clarke and Jasper arrive with Raven, and she stays.
Jasper and Clarke fill them in, and Clarke pulls out the Flame chip she got from Polis. Raven wakes up and sees (and thus ALIE sees) it and ALIE says oh that's my version 2 chip. Raven tries to get out to see where she is and they stop her. Clarke then says they need to go, she knows where they can get a wristband (the item they need to hopefully negate ALIE). They go to... the trading post (yay- Naila again!) but she's not very friendly, as her father was killed in the massacre. See Bellamy??? They force their way in and try to tie Raven down, but she fights and they can barely handle her.
Clarke tells Naila they need the wristband and she gets it- then they have to get it to work. Apparently they can send an EMP pulse to destroy the chip, but they need an electro magnet. Where can they get one? The Ark, of course. Too dangerous so they decide to try the dropship- Octavia and Monty go off to get. Raven meanwhile dislocates her own shoulder to try and get free- while ALIE looks on. Creepy bitch! She reopens her wound and they have to calm her down- Clarke tells ALIE/ Raven that she'll never get the chip if she lets Raven bleed, and ALIE acquiesces.
Raven then goes to work on Clarke, asking her if she sees the faces of the people she's killed, blah blah. Still going down this road, I wish they'd get over it. And... it works. Raven pushes Clarke's buttons, Clarke freaks and says they're going to fry ALIE, and from that ALIE figures the plan out. Sigh. Monty and Octavia get to the dropship and discuss O's plan to leave. "You're one of The 100," Monty tells her. Maybe best line of the night? Meanwhile Clarke and Bellamy talk- Bellarke again! All too brief.
Monty gets what they need but Octavia is suddenly missing- and then Bitch Unit Alpha shows up (aka Monty's mom). First of all, I don't think there's any way the Arker could get to the dropship that fast. But whatever- ALIE has BUA in her control and she tries to get Monty to swallow the chip. Octavia helps and BUA turns on her, and is about to kill her- forcing Monty to shoot his mom. And kill her. Wha????? ALIE you've gone too far.
Raven knows they're on their way back (thanks to ALIE) so she goes to work on Jasper and Bellamy, trying to push their buttons too. What kills me is they all hear Raven talking and they could easily gag her, but they don't, Which is a mistake because Naila hears that Bellamy was in on the massacre and ta da ALIE knows where they are. I hate ALIE. Why is this show so good at making me hate these people? Anyway ALIE realizes Raven is compromised when they're about to EMP her, and has Raven try to kill herself. Clarke says she'll give ALIE the version 2 chip if she relents. and she does. But Clarke lied (I like Clarke). But wait... the battery's not stong enough. Naturally.
They manage to zap her after getting the battery from the jeep and... it works? Jasper tries to destroy the chip and Clarke freaks- because Lexa is in there. Then she realizes... maybe the chip has to physically be removed from Raven. She incises where Lexa's chip was removed and what's left of it oozes out (nice) and Raven is okay. Finally some good news? Although Monty is hurting - the nicest guy on the show, too bad.
Bellamy and Clarke have a moment, and he asks her "What do you do when you realize you might not be the good guy?" and Clarke answers "Maybe there are no good guys." Is that the theme of this show, or what? So... Raven says she knows the version 2 AI is the only way to stop ALIE, so looks like it's war... Bellamy, O, and the rest. Good to have the gang back together.
