The 100, 3×07 “Thirteen” Photo Recap

Were you surprised when the episode opened with Murphy like this:

a5251f

I’m never surprised, he’s had more than his share of abductions and he’s one of the main characters in our constantly tortured anti-hero squad.

Titus is a cool guy. He just wants to learn what Sky People know about the sacred symbol.

So he asks nicely.

a5258 a5259

Yup. That’s what you get with Murphy.

a5260

We’re back 97 years to witness this baby’s creation process and Becca’s a proud mommy.

a5269a5275d

Chris calls and he’s like “we messed up”.

a5298 a5299a5290f

I honestly don’t know why I thought these two were married? I had this whole idea of them working on ALIE together as a couple.

Chris is just as surprised.

Then the world ends. Just like this:

a5344a5310

Back at Polis, in present day, Octavia’s brought to Lexa as a war prisoner.

a5360c a5361

The guy’s genuinely worried about Lexa’s commander skills.

a5390sB3d

She does, truly but we’re talking about Clarke’s people here.

a5383a5382B2

Suddenly he’s really happy. Too happy.

a5519

Titus welcomes the hug instead, so the dude’s heartbroken. He just really wanted to hug Lexa.

a5531a5540

Back in the past, Becca receives some praise.

a5638a5637

And friendly support.

a5663

She’s not having it.

Later Octavia’s in Clarke’s room and she’s done with everything.

4

One thing I appreciate about her is how action-oriented she is but she also wants everything to happen fast and expect a bit too much from Clarke.

a5698   a5706

Octavia insists.

a5699a5707

Lexa meditating in her room is the best. Because she definitely needs all that serenity.

Also I thought maybe she could be talking to the previous commanders while she was in trance.

a5714

Then Clarke tries her best.

a5721a5736a5739

Ah, problem solved?

Titus doesn’t agree.

a5754dfla5757kla5755ndj

Octavia tries to convince Indra to join her, doing what she and Bellamy do best (other than fighting and being cute, independent, loyal, stubborn af butterflies).

a5844a5836

You can’t fight the Blake motivational speech. Honestly, these two would kill it at a Ted talk.

Murphy realizes he can’t beat Titus so he makes it interesting.

a5902

In the flashback Becca can’t be persuaded to let go of the ALIE project.

a5945a5960

Sometimes you need to give up. Or not. Who knows. Not me.

Another hand holding scene, another Blake.

1444

This time it’s Octavia’s turn to tell Clarke they need her.

a5981fa5984a5986

Her face was really pained so I have a feeling Clarke remembered that exact moment.

She decides to leave so she goes to say goodbye to Lexa but emotions and romantic lighting interfere.

a6044 a6043

I might favor Bellamy and Clarke but I have a heart. Even though the scene seemed to be specifically set up for the right mood, it was also full of feeling. Alycia/Lexa had the saddest look on her face, like she wished they could have a different life together where she wasn’t bound to her duties.

22

Then they kissed and it was beautiful. Clexa fans, some bonus gifs for you:

25  262833

I like the smiles on their faces, we get so few of them on this show. These ladies carry heavy burdens and to see them connect in any way is beautiful.

This is exactly why what happens later is a disservice to the audience but let’s be patient.

In the meantime, Octavia and Indra team up again.

a6323F

43

Later Clarke goes to her room to see this:

a6108 a6107

She checks on him.

a6117

I loved seeing her worried about Murphy because they’re a part of the Season 1 squad and both are precious.

I also just realized how much I like Murphy.

38

When Titus shows up with a gun she even asks him what he did to her “friend” and I have feelings coming out of my eyes.

a6124a6122a6123

So Titus decides it’s better to kill Clarke now so Lexa can make decisions without worrying about her in the future, right?

Okay. But then this happens:

a6135

Lexa is shot. Accidentally.

Really, show?

a6277a6247a6266a629451a6396

I waited for a twist that involved Lexa not dying because 1. I like her as a character and 2: Even if she had to die, she’d die in an epic way, right?

I’ve read Alycia could only be in seven episodes but she could have a better death surely? Dying right after they make love felt like the writers were handing the Clexa fans a gift and then taking it back a second later. That’s cruel.

a6275

In the flashback, Becca goes back to Earth:

a6467

I love Becca.

In Polis, present day, Murphy really wants to leave.

a6424

Titus cuts Lexa’s skin to remove this little guy here. I’d guessed Lexa was connected to ALIE but this? Not really.

a6501lfs

Clarke = the audience.

54

Just like that, they’re locked up again.

a6532

Questions:

  • Is Clarke gonna be okay?
  • Are you as excited as I am for the Clarke/Murphy scenes?
  • Will the next commander have awkward sexual chemistry with Clarke?
  • How will they stop ALIE?
  • Is anyone else we love going to take the chip?
  • WHO’S GONNA DIE NEXT?

  1. Good recap I really love those ! =)
    It’s funny though, I just watched the episode today and I was thinking “I wonder what’s gonna be Ozge reaction to Lexa’s death?” …Yeah well it’s a win for team Bellamy (me). Bye bye Lexa /o/
    (Who am I kidding I CRIED.)
    You’re doing a great job, thanks =D

    1. Thank you!
      I got super emotional about her death, mostly because Alycia made me feel so much for her this episode. I liked her and I’m kind of a multishipper in a way, or at least I can enjoy multiple ships at the same time even when I’m passionate about one of them. It was really unfair to the Clexa fans, I feel like they were cheated. I hope the writers can make up for this by introducing other lgbtq relationships that will survive.
