The Marie Avgeropoulos on Octavia's Decision, Clarke Stealing the Bunker | TV Guide
starkandsnow. May we meet again Lincoln:If I were a gardener, you'd be my hoe. . Get back up.” A perfect couple, Lincoln x Octavia (Linctavia), The 'The ' EP Jason Rothenberg previews Octavia's quest for revenge in The one time where she meets the love of her life, her lover is again. Buffy is 15 when she first meets Angel who is like . And again, I don't think Octavia not Bellamy we're thinking about the future of the world . What bugs me more about the Octavia/Lincoln relationship is how it started.
Spoiler's for the most recent episode of The below. During the bloody conclave, warriors were perishing left and right, including Roan boo! But really, the only thing that mattered is that the massive pile of corpses didn't include our beloved Octavia Blake Marie Avgeropoulos. Upon being given the power to give the bunker to Skaikru, Octavia revealed that she wasn't just fighting for the people of Arkadia — she was fighting for all people and therefore, she was going to share the bunker with every clan.
Last week, Octavia realized that she will always be a warrior and can't walk away from that life. What does that acceptance mean for her and has she finally found a sense of peace? I think Octavia's skill set has always been a warrior.
She's been a warrior at heart since the very beginning because she's always had such darkness and pain in her life, starting under the floor and always being the black sheep of the group and always facing rejection from her own people. Then, of course, the loss of the only love of her life with Lincoln. That sent her spiraling down such a dark path.
And I think this season she lost all of her morality completely and she's accepted that that's who she is. She is that darkness and she uses that as her strength — to put that to use, to find purpose within herself again, to fight in the conclave for her people.
How did Ilian's involvement in the conclave change things for Octavia? They've sort of been stuck together this season, even though they didn't want to be. He's kind of like a rash. He just keeps showing up. She gets stuck with him But the last thing I think she wanted to do was have to murder him. She had the opportunity to do so [earlier this season], but then she was quickly reminded that she was no better than Pike if she did that back in Arkadia.
So when she has to mercy kill Ilian during the conclave because Echo was in fact cheating and breaking all the rules, it really broke her heart to do that. But it really shows the audience and Octavia that she did learn from [Ilian].

She did take on a lot of the rituals that he taught her and the peaceful philosophies that mirrored Lincoln's as well. Nobody else has really been there for her, so when Indra hands off Gaia's sword, that was such an incredible moment for Octavia because that sword would in fact be used to kill Trikru.
But Indra reminds her, it's who you fight for that's up to you. While grieving, Lexa tells Clarke of Costia, her own past love who was tortured and killed by Lexa's enemy, who believed she knew Lexa's secrets.
She tells Clarke that love is weakness. At a dinner, Kane gifts Lexa with a bottle of liquor. When Gustus, her right hand, tests it for her, he appears to be poisoned, leading Lexa to believe it was an assassination attempt by the Sky People.
Clarke immediately thinks it was Raven, as she was Finn's former girlfriend and loved him. Clarke confronts her; Raven punches Clarke for accusing her of doing it.
Lexa nearly kills Raven, but Bellamy figures out it was Gustus who poisoned the cup, and Clarke proves it to Lexa by drinking from the bottle herself.
When Lincoln confronts Bellamy about how he knew it was Gustus, he says Gustus would do anything to protect Lexa. Clarke decides she sees Lexa's point about how love is a weakness and tells Bellamy he was right and should go to Mount Weather. In "Survival of the Fittest," Clarke and Lexa encounter a gigantic mutated gorilla after one of the grounder council members drives Clarke into the forest with the intent to kill her.
They escape, but become temporarily trapped in its cage. Lexa is injured, but that does not stop her from dispensing some advice about leadership to Clarke. Clarke figures out a way to escape, and also has an idea about freeing the Grounders inside Mount Weather to help fight the Mountain Men.
Clarke races to the village where she explains the danger to Lexa. Lexa points out to Clarke that if they warn anyone else and stop the meeting, the Mountain Men will realize they have a spy inside the mountain and Bellamy will be compromised before having completed his mission.
Clarke is reluctant to leave so many others to die, but agrees Lexa is right and the two secretly escape. As they leave, Clarke sees her mother arriving in the village and returns to try to rescue Abby as the missile hits the village. In "Resurrection," Clarke and Abby survive the missile strike on Tondc, but Abby is horrified to realize Clarke knew it was coming and did nothing to save the rest of the people in the village. She goes back to help survivors, while Lexa and Clarke set off to find and kill the spotter who called in the strike.
Clarke finds and kills the spotter with Lincoln's help, and realizes the spotter's lack of a hazmat suit means the Mountain Men have started harvesting her friends. Inside Mount Weather, Jasper a friend of Clarke's and the others fight back and find refuge with those in Mount Weather who do not agree with Wallace or Cage.
Octavia figures out Clarke and Lexa knew about the missile, and Lexa decides she needs to be killed to protect that secret. Clarke stops the attempted murder. She confronts Lexa about her plan and her facade of heartlessness, and Lexa reveals she has feelings for Clarke.

As they wait for the deadly fog to clear, Lexa informs Clarke she does trust her and will no longer try to hurt Octavia. She notes that the Grounder ways are just focused on survival. Clarke suggests that maybe life should be about more than just surviving, and Lexa catches her off guard with a kiss. Clarke returns the kiss before she tells Lexa she is not ready to be with anyone yet. They are alerted to Raven's signal that the fog is disabled.
The Mountain Men prepare to deploy acid fog, but Bellamy manages to escape a security team and destroy the system in an explosion just in time. In "Blood Must Have Blood: Part 1," Bellamy frees the Grounders inside Mount Weather, as Clarke's plan is to attack from within. When the generators are taken out, soldiers from Mount Weather open fire on the army in front of their doors, but those still manage to destroy the lock at the last second.
When they pull the door open, Lexa commands her people to stand down because of a deal she just cut with the Mountain Men. When the Grounders retreat, almost all of the Sky People accept defeat and soon retreat, leaving behind only a betrayed Clarke at the front door and Octavia in the tunnels. Season 3[ edit ] In "Wanheda: Part Two," attackers on a jeep turn out to be Arkers who landed separately. Their numbers have dwindled to 63 due to conflict with the community called Ice Nation and they accept Kane's offer to come to Arkadia, where the other Sky People live.
Part of the group continue to search for Clarke, who has been on the run for three months due to now being a legend and subsequent target because of her defeat of the Mountain Men after Lexa's betrayal.
This has earned her the nickname "Wanheda" commander of death. Indra, one of Lexa's best and most trusted warriors, warns Lexa that the Ice Nation is marching on her; Indra is there when bounty hunter Roan the banished Ice Nation prince brings Clarke to Lexa, who sought to capture Clarke before members of Ice Nation did.
Still angry at Lexa for her betrayal, Clarke is dragged out kicking and screaming while vowing revenge on Lexa. Lexa tells Clarke that she intends to initiate the Sky People into her coalition as the thirteenth clan. Clarke believes Lexa only wants this because her Clarke's defeat of the Mountain Men has made Lexa look weak. Lexa focuses on sparring with Aden, a Nightblood she has been training for the role of Commander. Nightbloods are Grounders with black blood; they are the only Grounders who can become commanders.
As Titus Lexa's right-hand man and former mentor wants Lexa to kill Clarke because he feels that Clarke has weakened her reputation, Roan suggests that Clarke kill Lexa. In the end, Clarke cannot do it and Lexa apologizes for her betrayal.
Emerson, the last survivor of Mount Weather, is revealed to be alive. In "Watch the Thrones," in a fight to the death for the right to the throne, Queen Nia chooses her son Roan to fight Lexa. She and Clarke later bond as Clarke tends to her wounds. In "Hakeldama," Clarke, Lexa, and other Grounders discover an army of fallen Grounders, slain by Pike the new and destructive leader of the Sky People and his followers.
Indra is found wounded and says Bellamy persuaded Pike to let her live in order to tell Lexa that the Sky People reject the newly-formed coalition.
Lexa allows Clarke's return to Arkadia to tell Bellamy and the others to step down. Clarke fails to convince Bellamy, but convinces Lexa to end the cycle of violence in hopes of peace. In "Bitter Harvest," Lexa worries that by trying to make peace instead of engaging in war, she is betraying the commanders who came before her.
Clarke assures her that her legacy will be peace. Roan has Emerson, the last Mountain Man, delivered to Clarke; she must decide his fate. She ultimately decides to let Lexa banish him. Octavia and a man named Semet walk in claiming the Sky People destroyed their village.
Discussing the situation, Titus wants Lexa to destroy the thirteenth clan while Clarke thinks they just need time to take out Pike from the inside.
Speaking to everyone, Lexa orders the armies not to attack, but instead make a perimeter around Arkadia and says that any Sky Person found past the five mile buffer will be killed. Semet is angry at this and attempts to kill Lexa, but is stopped by Titus who kills him. Later, Titus is against Clarke staying, believing she further endangers Lexa's life.
He warns Lexa that, just like with Costia, she may not be able to separate feelings from duty. Lexa is enraged at this, reminding him that because she let Ice Nation into her coalition even after they cut off Costia's head and sent it to her bed, she is more than capable of separating feelings from duty. Later, Clarke goes into Lexa's room and realizes she is saying goodbye. Clarke says the reason she is going back is because the Sky People are her people. Lexa says that this devotion is what makes Clarke the person she is.
Clarke suggests that maybe someday they will owe nothing more to their people, and Lexa responds with "May we meet again. Afterward, Clarke admires Lexa's tattoos, pointing out there are only seven circles on her back despite there being nine participants. Lexa tells her she got the one on her back on her Ascension Day, and asks to talk about something else. Clarke agrees and they become intimate again.
It is later, as Lexa is running into Clarke's room, that Lexa is accidentally shot by Titus, who intended to kill Clarke. Clarke catches Lexa as she falls and they take her to the bed. Lexa realizes she is going to die and tells Clarke not to be afraid.
She tells Titus to never harm Clarke again, and he swears he will not. She tells him serve the next commander as he served her. Clarke continues to try and save Lexa, but she tells Clarke that her spirit will find a new commander.
She says her fight is over and that Clarke was right that life should be about more than just surviving. Clarke recites the Traveler's Blessing, an Arkadian prayer. As Lexa dies, Clarke kisses her one last time. Titus extracts a tech from Lexa's neck, where her tattoo is. The tech is called "the flame," and it is revealed to be Lexa's spirit. She was augmented to carry an AI the flame. The flame is how every new commander is chosen, with each new commander becoming a part of the flame.
It is only compatible with Nightbloods. Aden is meant to succeed Lexa, but, in "Stealing Fire," he is murdered by Ontari, a rogue Nightblood who seeks the throne for herself. ALIE is the one responsible for launching a nuclear strike on Earth because she believed it was needed to save humanity from extinction. This is in contrast to what her creator, Becca, had wanted. With Jaha's help, ALIE has been successful in getting many of the Sky People to swallow a chip that takes away pain emotional or physical and simulates a utopia called "the City of Light.
ALIE uses this chip to entice and control people. Clarke had tried to get Luna, a missing Nightblood and rightful heir to the Commander throne as indicated by the tattoos on Lexa's backto accept the flame, but she refused. Clarke is implanted with the flame with the help of a blood transfusion via a brain-dead Ontari, whose blood is compatible with the flame.
Before Lexa sacrifices herself to get Clarke to safety, Clarke tells her that she loves her. Lexa says that her spirit will always be with Clarke. Development[ edit ] Casting and creation[ edit ] Show creator Jason Rothenberg said he and others involved with the series were aware of Debnam-Carey while casting Clarke in ; although the chance for her to portray Clarke never materialized, her name was brought up while casting Lexa.
He called the casting a "no-brainer"; she did not audition for the role, but was rather offered it. That's kind of what happened in this case," stated Rothenberg, who considered Debnam-Carey's performance on The "amazing". He added, "You know we can't compete on some level with the cache of a franchise like that, with the numbers.
