Recaps, Rants, Raves is a new feature here at The Social Potato where we’ll share a recap as well as a rant/rave of a few TV shows every Saturday! For now, we have the first season of The 100!
Disclaimer: Ahead are recaps, reactions, and rants about the CW show The 100. If you haven’t watched the episode or the series, and you plan to do so, it is advised not to proceed due to inevitable spoilers. Otherwise, enjoy! Hello there! I wasn’t able to do the recap yesterday since I attended the Mafi/Riggs/Rossi signing which you can read about here. And this recap’ll be really quick since I was on Skype with some bloggy friends and I couldn’t focus since I was following the conversation really closely!
THE EPISODE IN A NUTSHELL:
60% plot, 20% I HATE YOU FINN and 20% WTF IS HAPPENING?
WHAT I THOUGHT:
I’m semi-impressed that I only cringed like once, which was of course because of Finn. I hate him with a burning passion. Everything else was surprisingly pleasing to watch! Well, mostly.
1.) Finally, a plan that DIDN’T work. You know how in most TV shows and movies, the heroes’ plans always seem to go the right way? Well, in this episode, Raven’s plan didn’t work and they weren’t able to get their message to the Ark and they still killed off 300 people. 2.) I loved the dynamic between Bellamy and Octavia, especially Bellamy’s protectiveness. I liked how we were given an insight to their lives before being thrown off the Ark, as well as why Bellamy’s super protective of Octavia. 3.) ACTION and PLOT, people. Yes, there is a crapload of action and even a bit of a plot! Things (IMPORTANT THINGS) happened. And there are REVELATIONS.
1.) OH MY DID THAT LADY JUST GIVE BIRTH ON HER OWN WITHOUT THE HELP OF ANY DOCTOR OR OTHER CAPABLE PERSON? Dear Lord, that was so creepy. And it only took her like 2 seconds to give birth! Way to start an episode. And that baby’s not even crying. Oh. The baby’s Octavia. Still creepy. 2.) Finn the fucking asshole still wants to continue his relationship with Clarke even after reuniting with Raven and even saying that he cared about her. GO ROT IN A HOLE SOMEWHERE PLEASE. 3.) Octavia put 100% of the blame on Bellamy when seriously, half of the fault is hers as well. Seriously, bitch, ACT LIKE A LADY AND ADMIT YOUR FAULTS. Whoa, the good things are equal to the bad. Awesome.
