Episode 4×11 of The 100, “The Other Side,” has a weak title and some lazy writing. It also has one of the most affecting goodbye scenes in the entire series, and touching reunion, and more wtf moments with Jaha. We’re concerned about–and for–Clarke, too. Join us while we break it down!
We are still reeling from episode 4×10 of The 100: “Die All, Die Merrily.” Many of our favorite characters died. One of our absolute favorite characters did something unforgivably awful. We got to see see much Indra. This is definitely one of the best episodes of the series. Have a listen while we break it down.
In “DNR,” episode 4×9 of The 100, Clarke tries to lead all the Grounders, Roan says not so fast, and a battle to the death gets set up. Along the way Raven, Jasper, and Harper decide they’d rather die than live in a bunker, and Octavia tries her hand a farming. It’s a fantastic episode that seems to be setting up even more fantastic things to come. Have a listen while we break it down!
I know, I know–we’ve already had an episode on Game of Thrones. But for a television show this rich, there’s so much more to say! And, Season 6 of Game of Thrones might just be Blythe’s favorite season of television ever. Long awaited reunions, revenge on a massive scale, diplomacy, and some adorable flirting–this season packs it in, offering an emotional viewing experience that spans from desperation to satisfaction
We agree that this episode is the best of the season so far, setting up brilliant and exciting stories to follow. The ending might have been a bit predictable, but was utterly satisfying anyway as Clarke does what’s right (perhaps foolishly). Jaha’s off on another pilgrimage to save the world through religion, and no one seems to be stopping him, proving that we never really learn from the past. And Jasper’s just interested in drugs and dancing–and really, who can blame him?
The one in which Murphy plays househusband, Abby plays mad scientist, and Octavia plays a normal teenager (for once). God, who even remembers that half of this cast of characters is suppose to be less than 20 years old at this point? Things we loved about this one include Clarke being Clarke, and Emori being Emori. Things we didn’t love: Bellamy being Bellamy.
Clarke and Roan working together to deliver materials to Raven so she can fly a rocket ship to space to make nightblood? As Roen put it, “What could go wrong?” We enjoyed a lot about this episode, especially Clarke and Nylah’s relationship, Murphy and Raven’s antipathy, and Luna and Murphy’s unexpectedly moving conversations.
What does it mean to put your clan first, and what might it look like to not make decisions because of “your people?” What really is the nature of Abby and Raven’s relationship? Are we headed toward a BelEcho? An Echomy? Join us while we dissect The 100’s “Tinder Box” episode.
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.
As a follow up to our previous podcast on The Fall, here we discuss the final season of the BBC2’s psychological thriller. When we last saw them, Detective Gibson was frantically trying to stop serial killer Paul Spector from bleeding out after he was shot, a controversial move she has to answer for more than once in the series conclusion. Paul’s psychological games continue with varying degrees of success, and we’re stuck shouting at the screen, punching pillows, and generally feeling feels. Feminist until the very end, the show is a staunch repudiation of violence against women–a must-see for anyone who can stomach it.
