The show starts and my heart is immediately already broken by Clarke’s hyperventilating sobs as she attempts to scrub Finn’s blood off her hands. Abby tries to console her, but isn’t much help. Lexa comes in and sits on her throne with Gustus and Indra. She tells Clarke some Grounders believe that Finn’s death was not enough justice because he did not die by their traditions. However, Lexa believes it was enough, because as she puts it, “What you did tonight will haunt you until the end of your days.” And it literally is, because Clarke is seeing Finn everywhere. One last thing though, Lexa wants to bring Finn’s body to the village of the people he slaughtered. Kane and Abby try to fight it and say Finn should be buried with his own people, but Clarke quickly agrees with Lexa. She tells Abby she needs this truce to be held up or killing Finn was for nothing. One of my favourite exchanges in the episode comes after this between Kane and Abby. Abby says, “They’re being led by a child,” to which Kane responds, “So are we.” THANK YOU KANE! I’ve only been yelling at you every episode, no adult can handle being a leader on the ground.
They get to the camp and Gustus takes all their weapons from them, including Raven’s. The Grounders are pissed they’re there however, and Gustus ends up beating one of them to a pulp. Lexa is like you all better chill. They set up all the bodies in a pyre and Lexa gives Clarke the task of lighting it on fire, something that seems to be an honor because the Grounders’ eyes look like they’re about to pop. Clarke says “Your fight is over,” in Grounder language and this also causes
Lexa and Clarke have a moment after the ritual, where Lexa tells her the story of someone she loved, a woman, who the “Ice Nation” kidnapped, tortured, and beheaded in an attempt to get Lexa’s secrets. AWESOME to have the first LGBT character on the show and IN LOVE with the fact it is Lexa! Not so great her girlfriend got beheaded. Also who is the “Ice Nation”? Canada? Cause I am definitely freezing my butt off up here right now. Lexa tells Clarke plainly, love is weakness, and there is no place for weakness when you are the leader of your people.
After all this, the Grounders and Sky People have a feast to celebrate. Kane even bring some alcohol. He gives it to Lexa who says she will share with Clarke. She pours them both a glass, and has Gustus try hers first. Gustus falls over, and the Grounders yell “Poison!” Just like that, alliance over. Everyone is ready to fight, and the Grounders determine that the only person who would want Lexa dead is Raven, and Indra finds poison in Raven’s coat. The Grounders lock all The Sky People in the room while they go to determine their fate. Octavia tells Lincoln to do something, and he tries to talk to
Gustus is saved, and the Grounders come back. They have decided they will kill Raven, and everyone else will be set free.
