Of course, there is never a dull moment when our beloved Murphy makes his appearance with his acidic charm. He tries to console Finn, but I guess he wasn’t comforted by it, and is very overwrought by his actions. Clarke and Bellamy appears and after Bell escorts Finn to safety, *gasp!* Murphy calls her ‘princess!’ This is the first time in season two that we heard this! May we get a round of applause? Just not by one of the men we hoped to hear it from. The feeling isn’t mutual, folks, since Clarke is shooting bloody daggers at Murphy, telling him that he could’ve stop Finn, and he tells her that he tried, but she spat, ‘Not hard enough!’ Okay, we all done things we’re not proud of, especially in times of crises, the mind takes a journey of its own. Moment of truth, kids. Learn from it. Back to the show, Octavia is back at Lincoln’s side at his bed, (no! Not like that!) and Clarke and Abby speak to him if there is another way to absolve the issue and make peace with both parties. I felt that Lincoln’s perspective on the whole scenario was very off putting, and not at all sounding like the usual sensible self that he is. He was at this point, that was speaking like a Grounder! In fact, his wording about the punishment is just as bad as viewing the malevolence. Nonetheless, he described it as real as you can possibly get. Death has no cost. Life has no worth. It was quite the mental painting.
Fast forward a bit. It is a Kane and Abby reunion as he is freed from the Grounders. He meets up with Jaha and explains the terms that the commander has told him. A trial on Finn, on their own behalf. Yeah, right. Grounders are known for one thing. I highly doubt that a trial will suffice, as they desire blood for blood. This is just a ruse. I don’t like Lexa, but
More bittersweet reminisces up in space where we discovered that Raven failed her physical due to a heart murmur, and cannot do spacewalks. She did enjoyed one though with two belated gifts of a piece of tape, and spacesuit. Raven felt so free, and she looked positively radiant out in the stars. Imagine, just letting yourself go, doing what you’ve always dreamt of. Finn allowed that to happened, and took full responsibility so that she wouldn’t get floated. Despite to popular belief, Finn is that caring guy, that charismatic Lothario, who suffered from PTSD, and just happened to snap. When you suffer through the horror, it can really puncture the mind. We do not know if this will ever happen to us, but I hope that it doesn’t.
I was very much in denial and still clung onto that hope Finn was alive. I even debated it online, and the more reality hit,
I know this is going to sound very inappropriate, but I am going to add in a happy note on this episode. The acting from all around was beyond superb, and the cast delivered each line with such emotion. Even the ones who only had a few minutes, stolen the spotlight. The writers have worked their butts off making sure that the midseason finale was spectacular and will impact the fans. Like always, they did not disappoint us. Here’s to more amazing and phenomenal episodes that will pull our heartstrings.
