THE EPISODE IN A NUTSHELL:
WHAT I THOUGHT:
Surprises are shown like every five minutes. So much love for this episode!
1.) THAT TWIST IN THE BEGINNING! I did NOT expect Murphy to come back, so when he showed up I was so, so shocked! Like he was gone for so long, and he is back…. and with him comes a disease…
2.) HOLY BLOOD AND GORE. The entire first half of the episode, the disease made everyone cough up blood or cry tears of blood–IT WAS DISGUSTING AND DISTURBING, but really cool, too. If you’re not a fan of bloody scenes, you might have to keep your eyes closed. Seriously, I cussed so much while watching this because SHIT IT WAS GORE-Y.
3.) Raven. Loved Raven. I was a bit underwhelmed with her character in the past few episodes, but she is back in her kick-ass self! Making her snarky remarks, Raven’s back in my good graces.
4.) Goodbye grounder. For now. I never really shipped Octavia and the grounder, only because it was a really weird relationship and it never clicked with me. Anyway, this might not be a good thing for a lot of you guys, but it is for me!
5.) WHAAAAAT THAT ENDING. The show’s getting so much better in terms of opening and closing and episode. There is ALWAYS a twist in the end that’ll leave us with an expression like this:
1.) You guys all realize that Finn would always be on this part of my recap, right? Anyway, at the beginning of the show, we’re already introduced to him pining over Clarke. Sure, the asshole has a brain and he knows how to use it, but HE JUST GETS ON MY NERVES EVERY SINGLE SCENE. It could just be me, though.
2.) Fuck you, Jasper. I absolutely adored Jasper and Monty’s friendship (as you can see in my episode 8 recap), and in this episode Jasper was such an ass to Monty. Just because he’s now “popular” and all that, he’s just going to act all high and mighty!?
It was an awesome episode–my favorite so far. Only, it lacked Bellamy/Clarke moments. More of those in the next episode, please?
