Lincoln and Bellamy head for the tunnels. Lincoln kills an animal and smears blood on him. They’re disguising themselves as Reapers. Lincoln says they’ll have to kill Reapers as they go. They press on and Lincoln says when they took him, he was tagged Cerberus which meant that he would be made a Reaper. He tells Lincoln he was good for Octavia and made her strong. Lincoln says she was already strong. Bellamy asks why he protected Octavia before he knew her.
He says when he was a boy, he saw a ship fall to earth and tried to help the man but his body was broken. Bellamy says some people committed suicide that way. Lincoln says he told his father about the man and he made him kill him. He says the world have been trying to turn him into a monster. Bellamy says the parking garage is the other way but Lincoln says there’s a tunnel that’s better.
They press on. Idra and the Grounders come to Camp Jaha. She tells her people to keep their eyes sharp. Kane greets her in her language and she’s surprised. He says first a reception, then training. He asks them to leave their weapons at the door. She disarms. They throw down their primitive weapons and head inside. Kane thanks her for coming and she says she’s there on the commander’s orders.
Jaha says this is a mistake and Kane says he just Abby to release him and not to make him regret it. Jaha says if they lose, Mt Weather kills them all or they win and the Grounders do. Kane says there’s enough here for everyone and they just need to show them. Kane tells the group they don’t have a lot in common but do have a common enemy and goal.
He says they need to work together to get all their people out of Mt Weather. One guy comes and over and gets in Murphy’s face who says he doesn’t speak Grounder. Kane tells him to apologize and then slaps him with work detail. The guy says he’ll burn like Finn and Murphy punches him. Octavia tries to stop the fighting. Jaha gives Kane an I-told-you-so look and walks out.
Clarke explains how the air locks work and how it powers Mt Weather. Lexa says they cold shut down the dam. Quint guy gets impatient and says they can’t wait on one man. Clarke says she doesn’t care how many men they have, if they can’t get through the acid fog, they can’t kill the enemy. He gets in her face. She asks if he has a problem with her and he says she burned his brother in a ring of fire.
She tells him that his brother shouldn’t have attacked her ship. He walks out and Lexa says waiting for Bellamy is not a plan, it’s a prayer. Bellamy and Lincoln are getting closer and he asks how much he remembers from being a Reaper and he says – all of it. Clarke goes for a walk to clear her head and sees Quint. He asks if she’s feeling less brave away from Lexa and calls her Sky Girl.
He shoots an arrow right by her head and she goes running. At Camp Jaha, there’s hand to hand sparring going on and the Grounders are kicking Sky People ass. Octavia steps in the ring next. Idra tells her only warriors train her and Octavia says she saved her life and Idra says she’s saving hers now. Byrne comes up on Clarke and she’s missing an arm. She tells Clarke to save herself then falls to the ground.
Murphy is sulking with Jaha who asks him if he doesn’t approve of this cross-training. Murphy says the Grounders can go to hell and Jaha says he got him off work detail so he can take him to his son’s grave. Murphy says to get someone else but Jaha says he heard the graves are unmarked and he’d like to know which is his son’s. He tells Murphy he can hold a mop or a gun. Murphy chooses gun.
Some of the Grounders come to watch Kane’s shooting lessons. He demonstrates how to shoot then asks a Grounder if he’d like to try. He tells them Mt Weather has guns and they should too. Idra says they can’t touch them and Octavia says Mt Weather won’t allow them guns. Kane says that means they can’t arm them and Octavia says – the hell we can’t. Kane notes that Octavia seems to know a lot about the Grounders.
Quint tackles Clarke and is about to avenge his brother by killing her when Lexa puts a knife in his hand. She asks Clarke where her guard is and she says he killed Byrne. Quint says she’s lying and Lexa tells Clarke to kill him. She hesitates and there’s a loud animal roar. Clarke asks what that was and Lexa says pauna. She wounds Quint down and they take off running.
The creature is on Quint in moments and he screams in terror. They tell Clarke they need to hide and she shows them a pipe. They duck through it but then realize they are in the creature’s feeding ground. It looks like an old zoo. They climb up high and pull out weapons. It’s a gorilla. She kills one of the Grounders with them and then Clarke shoots the animal several times. It falls back but then comes back.
They are cornered. Clarke jumps then Lexa but Lexa hurts her ankle. The gorilla jumps after them and Clarke finds a smaller area they can crawl through and Lexa follows but is grabbed. She tells Clarke to leave her. She won’t and uses her last bullet to drive the animal back. She gets them into a large animal enclosure and uses Lexa’s sword to bar the doors. The gorilla is after them.
Murphy and Jaha walk and Jaha says this world is extraordinary. Murphy says to give it a few days. He calls Murphy son in conversation and he tells him he’s no one’s son thanks to Jaha. He tells Murphy he remembers his dad and he says no. But then he says his name and that he was caught stealing medicine for Murphy. He tells Murphy he remembers everyone he sentences.
Murphy brings him to the burned out metal husk the kids called home. Lincoln and Bellamy reach the cave that will take them into the tunnels.
Jaha asks what happened. He says a 12 year old girl took a knife from him and stabbed Wells in the neck because she couldn’t kill Jaha personally. Murphy says they’d all still be alive if he hadn’t sent them down here. Jaha says we’d all be dead on the ark by now and says good can come out of even the darkest acts. Murphy says the camp is the other way but Jaha says they can rest at the drop ship awhile.
The skirmishes continue in the rain and then Idra says she just found out their hosts have no food and they need to hunt. Octavia steps in front of her and asks if she has time for one more. Idra is tired, hungry and caves in. She calls for Fio – a giant guy – who steps forward to spar with Octavia. Kane tells his men to let is happen. The guy punches Octavia and she goes down.
She gets up and asks if he’s giving up that easily. Idra tells him to oblige her. She fights back and he knocks her down again. Kane says to stop it but he comes again. Octavia fights it again. She goes down and he turns his back. She stands again. She punches him and spits in his face. He punches her in the gut and then again. She goes to get back up and then Idra finally stops it.
The Grounders march out to hunt. Octavia lies in the mud panting and in pain. Kane comes for her and lifts her up. He asks what she’s trying to prove and she says what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Clarke binds Lexa’s wound and she tells her she should have left her behind. Clarke says her people just say thank you. Lexa says to lead well, you must make hard choices.
Clarke says she knows about hard choices. Lexa says she couldn’t kill Quint or leave her to die. Clarke says she thought love was weakness. Clarke says she needs Lexa. She says she may be heartless, but at least she’s smart and a general that replaces her won’t be. Lexa says when she dies, her spirit will find the best leader and Clarke asks if that’s how their leaders are chosen. Lexa asks how theirs are chosen.
The killa gorilla finds them and rattles the doors and roars. Lexa tells her not to be afraid and Clarke says they’re not dying here. Clarke lets it in, pushes Lexa out and follows and locks the beast in the cage they were in. Idra finds Octavia later and the girl asks what she wants. Idra says she fought like a child without thought and leaving herself exposed. Octavia says she knows she got her ass kicked and that should make her happy.
Idra says it makes her happy because she didn’t give up. She says strength of spirit should be guided. Idra says she can make her a great warrior if she’s willing to do what she must to become her second. Octavia asks what’s in it for her and Idra says the first lesson is to never question her. Octavia says yes and Idra says they start tomorrow.
Jaha offers Murphy some food and Murphy says no one gives things without wanting things and Jaha says he’s being cynical. Jaha says everyone deserves a second chance and Murphy says he doesn’t give a damn about them and that’s why he’s not fighting to save the Mt Weather kids. Murphy says he’s nothing like him and Jaha says they both should have died, both have been betrayed and imprisoned by their own and tortured by Grounders.
Jaha says there’s a place for all of them. He tells him about the place he heard about – the City of Light. Murphy says it sounds like a fairy tale. Jaha says he believes. Murphy says good for him and lies down on the floor. He tells Murphy he’s going to find it and he’s going to come back and lead his people home. Murphy looks thoughtful.
Lincoln and Bellamy are in the old mine tunnels and Lincoln stops and sees a vial of red, the Reaper drug. He crushes it underfoot. Lincoln says when they open the intake doors they attack and kill them all then they’ll make it look like they escaped. They hear a raider party and Lincoln wants to go back. Bellamy says they can join them. He tells Lincoln to grab the red, antagonize the Reapers and then they can go on with the plan.
They come, Lincoln says that Bellamy tried to escape and the other Grounder says to tie him to the log. They blindfold him. At Camp Jaha, Idra cuts meat off a beast they hunted and tells Kane and the others to eat and be strong so they can win the war. Kane come forward and takes the food from her. He thanks her. Everyone else drifts over to ear. Kane goes to sit with Octavia.
He tells her she did this and she says – you’re welcome – and tells him not to blow it. He says the boar put up a better fight than her and says she’s making friends. He looks over at Idra. She asks what he wants and he asks what will happen once they get the 47 back. He says this war will end and what then. She asks what the point is and he says we know so little about them and he asks her to be his eyes and ears.
She says you’re asking me to be a spy and he says he’s asking her to look out for her people. She says she is and goes to eat with Idra. Jaha and Murphy wake to noise. Several of the other adults from Camp Jaha are there and he tells Murphy they’re going to the City of Light. He says they’re going now. He tells Murphy he should take this leap of faith with him and see there is more for him than this.
Jaha greets the others and they walk of. Murphy looks back, thinks and then joins them. Clarke hears the gorilla and wakes but Lexa says she’s safe. She asks about her arm and Lexa says it’s safe. Clarke says the cage won’t hold forever. Lexa tells Clarke she was wrong about her and says her heart shows no sign of weakness. Clarke says she thinks she knows how to hold Mt Weather.
Clarke says her army is already there inside and they just need someone to unlock them. Lexa says she hopes that her faith in Bellamy is well placed. She tells Lexa this is going to work. They have Bellamy and the others ready to take the red. The intake door opens and the Mt Weather men come in. They line up to get the red and Lincoln takes the drug instead of fighting it like they planned.
The scientists says to harvest them all which means that Bellamy will be taken into Mt Weather. He’s knocked out and drug inside. Lincoln is already in a red haze as he sees Bellamy led inside.
