After last week’s ground-breaking episode, we are finally starting to watch all the pieces work together. The delinquents are united and strong. Kane and Abby are under the influence of A.L.I.E. Murphy and Pike are locked up together – and apparently not best friends. Jaha is still crazy AF.
So, what exactly has this week’s episode brought us?
Murphy’s Rule: Back in Polis, Indra is out for blood. She wants revenge on Pike for killing her entire army; who can blame her? However, Murphy immediately realizes Indra’s vendetta is a bad idea. They need as many non-chipped people as possible if they are going to survive. Murphy and Pike use logic to unite the non-chipped grounders. Murphy explains the A.L.I.E. is behind all the chipping and that they need to escape and regroup. A.L.I.E. sends her grounder minions in, but Indra takes them out and gets the key. Pike, Murphy, and Indra stay back to get A.L.I.E’s backpack– which Murphy believes can destroy her – while the rest of the grounders escape.
City of Problems: Now we take a look at the City of Light. One of the dead grounder’s tells A.L.I.E. Murphy’s plan to get the backpack. A.L.I.E. knows who to request immediately: Emori. When the trio arrives at the Flamekeeper’s sanctuary, Emori is already waiting for them. Pike takes them out with a rifle, but Murphy won’t let him shoot Emori – cue my heart dying a little. They see the Grounders are trying to power the escape pod, but ignore it in favor of A.L.I.E.’s backpack. Murphy is about to smash the backpack, until Emori tells him it’s a nuclear fuel cell that will kill the entire city. So now, Murphy, Pike, and Indra must disable a bomb.
The Back Door: Raven and Monty have been pulling all-nighters trying to figure out how to stop A.L.I.E. Raven, thanks to Becca’s journal, now knows the backdoor password, but once they use it, A.L.I.E. will know they are there. Raven want’s to use it, but Monty say’s the best plan is to wait for Clarke. Why is the best plan always wait for Clarke? Good news is Harper comes in to give Monty a little break wink wink. The two are too cute and they totally get it on – no thanks to the Raven interruption at the end. Apparently, Raven has found a firewall in the code, the citadel. She want’s to go in and take down A.L.I.E., knowing A.L.I.E. is vulnerable there. Monty hates the plan and watches Raven all night…until he falls asleep.
The Oil Rig: Back on the oil rig, the delinquents still can’t get Luna to take the chip. Clarke thinks it’s a good idea to try to trick her, which turns out poorly. Turns out, like we didn’t already guess, Luna is a badass – and she left the conclave before fighting Lexa. Meanwhile, Jasper becomes friends with a girl named Shay – who is adorable and obviously go to die. Luna then declares it is time for Skairkru to go. Right when Luna is about to lock them in the shipping container, the Grounder’s steal the flame and lock the delinquents in. Jasper is saying bye to Shay when he sees what happens. He immediately realizes it’s A.L.I.E. and tells Shay to run – but she gets shot with an arrow instead. The Grounders grab a very confused Jasper, Luna, and Derrick. They tie them up and begin to torture Luna until she takes A.L.I.E.’s chip.
The Race Against Time: Derrick takes the chip instead, torturing Luna in the process. Meanwhile, the trio back at Polis are trying to turn off the backpack. A.L.I.E. tells Jaha it is important that the Grounders stop them before the “migration” is complete. At Arkadia, Raven is hacking away at A.L.I.E’s system. They assume it is Monty accessesing the code, because somehow A.L.I.E. knows Sinclair is dead (WHO THE EFF IS CHIPPED?!). Jaha decides the best way to stop Monty is through his mother. It holds them long enough for the “migration” to be complete, while A.L.I.E. removes herself from Arkadia and the backpack. Everyone has failed.
Re-Group: The trio run away when they realized they failed – Murphy couldn’t risk killing Emori by taking out the backpack. Cut to A.L.I.E. floating in space on the remaining pieces of the Ark. Meanwhile, Clarke and Co. eventually escape the shipping container and rescue Luna who is forced to kill. She is crying the entire time. Clarke then assumes Luna will take the flame, but instead gives them a sleeping drought. They wake up back on land with A.L.I.E. 2.0. Bellamy says what we’re all thinking, “Now what?”
