The 100: S4E4

We are thrilled to announce a new series of Badass Women Save Themselves, in which we analyze each episode of the CW’s The 100. In this, our first episode, we dig into 4×4, “A Lie Guarded.’ Clarke’s made a list, Roan’s planning a war, and Luna’s asking just how much agency she has over her own body. We talk about who really serves as Clarke’s conscience, whether Jaha is redeemable, and the emotional connections Raven forges with some of the people around her. Oh, and dental hygiene.

Top Five Ships!

Let’s talk about ships. No, not the kind with sails and pirates (although, really, we don’t spend enough time talking about that). The lesbian, fan-fic kind! In this episode, we discussion our top five non-canon lesbian ships. Some are so obvious they might as well be canon. Some we made up because it would have made the story more feminist. Most involve painfully beautiful women who stare at each other’s lips a little too much. All are a blast to discuss!
