#The100 starts with Nathan talking about a massacre at alpha station. He says it was right after unity day. Nathan says one guy from Brazil was seeing his dead family in his dreams. He said they looked like demons. He says then he saw them when he was awake and they wanted him to kill with a metal hook.
Bryan scoffs and Harper says shut it. Nathan says he gutted 11 of them and the. He was cut into pieces and wrote in blood on his body demons. Nathan jokes that you can still hear the hook. Nathan goes to pee and then Bryan goes to check on him and says he’s going to kick his BF’s ass.
She says get the hook guy to chop up firewood. Harper hears a noise and goes to check on Nathan and Bryan. She thinks they’re pranking her then she sees a Grounder in a mask and screams in terror. The new Heda is greeted in the marketplace.
Murphy follows her around and finds Emori in the marketplace cooking and serving rats. She says the old vendor died a painful death. She says she’s been looking for him then heard about the new Heda’s Skaikru flamekeeper.
Heda comes over and sees him trying rat. He says it’s the best rat he’s ever had. She says don’t fall behind again. Murphy tells Emori where to meet him later. Raven tells the others more about Alie while reading Becca’s journey and says she had to lock up Alie.
She says she was 27 when the bombs dropped and Alie 2.0 was to make up for the first thing. She says the AI wouldn’t knock them out since it would be part of them. Clarke says that’s where Nightblood came from – it’s black – and that’s why they need to find Luna.
Monty wonders if his mom might still be alive in the City of Light. Bellamy says eyes up, we’re almost home. He radios Miller and Harper and gets no answer. They wonder why the gate hasn’t been fixed and what’s going on when they pull up to Arkadia and it looks bad.
They wonder if the others all got chipped. Octavia and Clarke talk and wonder if Alie knows they’re coming. They have guns out and go in closer. They see blood on the road and Octavia says let’s get the book and get the hell out of here.
It’s Lincoln’s blood they saw. They take the Rover into the garage and all head inside. They close it up and turn the Rover around so it’s ready for a quick escape. They see stuff on the table and Clarke says it’s like they just got up and walked away.
They gear up and Raven says Alie’s mission is to chip everyone and so they might have gone to find more people. Octavia goes with Jasper to look around the quarters. She sees Lincoln’s guard jacket and sniffs it. She screams and knocks some stuff over.
Jasper says you told me it gets better. She says it’s not the same and he says it’s okay to fall apart a little and says he knows she loved him. Octavia says a warrior doesn’t mourn the dead until the war is over and searches for what she needs. She finds a book in his stuff.
She sees a sketch Lincoln made of her and then other drawings including a map. She gasps and says Luna, we’re on our way. Jasper says Grounder, staggers in and collapses. The Grounder comes at Octavia, picks her up and chokes her.
Murphy meets Emori and takes her to the flamekeeper room at Polis. She asks if he wants to prove how much he missed her. They kiss passionately. Then she notices the room and looks around. She says she knows some of this tech.
He asks if she knew the flamekeeper. She asks who’s this – it’s the first commander Bekka Pramheda – drawn on the wall. Emori is floored. He asks if she believes this religious crap. Emori sees the orange cloth and looks closer. It’s like she’s in church.
Murphy kisses her neck and she asks if anyone will come in here. He kisses her. They start to undress each other. Bellamy goes to the Armory to load up on ammo and radios and says finish up and meet me at the Armory. He says they just got lucky.
Raven says leave Alie 2 then says she knows how to activate it with a spoken passphrase. Sinclair asks how she can read this. She says it could be anything and says it was in Lexa and she would have known it. Clarke says Lexa didn’t know she was an AI.
Raven says she wasn’t AI, she was just enhanced. She asks about words that Lexa might have used over and over. She says blood must have blood. Then she says it in another language. Nothing happens. On the journal is the phrase seek higher things.
It doesn’t work. Raven wonders about a Latin phrase. Sinclair translates seek higher things into Latin. The chip lights up and its tendrils reach out. Raven tries to touch it and it shuts down. Then she says the phrase again and leans closer like she’s entranced.
The tendrils reach out for her. Clarke says if you don’t have the blood, it will kill you. Clarke says let’s go find it a host. Sinclair says he and Raven will catch up then asks what else she knows now. Clarke tells Monty that finding Luna is everything and they shut down Alie.
Monty worries what will happen when they shut down the city of light. They hear a music box and Monty says don’t follow the creepy music. It’s rock a bye baby. They see it in the hall ahead sitting on the floor. The music box peters out and Clarke picks it up.
She looks under it and sees the name Aaron on it. Monty says let’s go. Suddenly red smoke is there and she says run. They see a giant guy in robes coming at them. It’s too late. The gas takes them down. The music box plays as the Grounder in a mask approaches and Clarke plays dead then snatches off his mask and runs.
She gets away and tells Bellamy that it’s Emerson.
Emori and Jasper get their clothes back on and he tells her she needs to leave Polis, it’s not safe but she says she can take care of herself. She asks how the hell he pulled this off. He says he knows how to stay alive. He says Ontari is crazy and he’s only breathing because she thinks he knows how to make her be the commander.
Emori asks why she’s not the commander and he says she needs a computer chip shoved into her brain like the last commander has. Emori asks what she does for her and Murphy says Ontari took a liking to him. There’s a knock and Murphy is told that Heda wants her flamekeeper.
Emori comes out of hiding and throws his jacket at him. Murphy says stay here and I’ll be back. He kisses her cheek and goes. Clarke and Bellamy go looking for Monty and she thinks Emerson took him. Bellamy radios Jasper and Octavia. Nothing.
Clarke says this is all her fault because she let Emerson live. She says she had a chance to kill Emerson in Polis and let him go. Raven is with Sinclair and Clarke warns her about Emerson. Clarke says lock down the hangar and don’t let anyone in.
Sinclair goes to lock the other door. Raven says he wants revenge. The lights go out and Emerson has on night vision goggles. He knocks Raven down. Clarke and Bellamy are there. Raven gets into the Rover and opens the door. She hears Sinclair moaning and sees blood on his belly.
Sinclair tells her to stay in the Rover but she runs to him. He says it’s okay. He says get back in the Rover as he bleeds out. He says please go back. He dies in front of her repeating stay in the Rover. Emerson is there and grabs Raven around the neck.
Bellamy and Clarke get inside and find Sinclair’s body. She’s horrified. Bellamy says they’re too late. She says no we’re not. She says Emerson didn’t kill Monty or Raven and took them somewhere. Bellamy says that means Octavia and the others are there.
They wonder where he would have taken them. Clarke radios and tells Emerson they need to talk. He has the others in the airlock and says he doesn’t need to do anything. He says she should have killed him when she had the chance.
She asks if he’s there to kill her and says let my friends go and you can have me. Emerson says she’s brave and then says come to the airlock no weapons, right now. Clarke tells Bellamy she has to go save them and says take this to Luna and hands him the chip.
She makes him promise and he says no, he won’t let her do this alone. Clarke says no one else will die for her mistake. Bellamy says letting him kill you today is stupid. Clarke asks if he has a better plan. He says you distract him and I shoot him. She nods.
Bellamy walks away and Clarke still has the chip in her hand. Murphy is with Heda as supplicants come to make cases before her. He facilitates. Jaha is there and says hi to John. Ontari asks who it is and Jaha says her flamekeeper and him are old friends.
Murphy tells her she doesn’t have to be a false commander. She clears the room and Murphy asks how he knows it. Jaha says he told him and Murphy says he’s lying. Emori comes in – she’s a spy for Jaha. Murphy is stunned.
He says she took the chip and Ontari asks why Murphy acted like he didn’t know her. Emori says she’s his lover. Murphy says don’t trust them and holds a blade at his neck. Jaha says kill him and I won’t help you. Jaha says he’s a fraud but has knowledge that can help them all.
Ontari orders him arrested and Murphy says Jaha tells nothing but lies. He’s hauled out, Jaha tells her she’s ruling without the wisdom of the commander’s spirit and her people will figure it out. Jaha says he has something more powerful than the flame – a true legacy of Bekka Pramheda.
He offers her a key and she snatches it. Jaha says just swallow it. Clarke goes with hands up to surrender to Emerson and says let my friends go. He says tell Bellamy to show himself and puts a knife at Octavia’s throat. Bellamy comes out.
Clarke says I’ll get inside once you let them go. She tells Bellamy not to surrender but he does. He throws down his gun and weapons and goes to Emerson with hands up. He tells Bellamy to cuff himself and he does. Emerson pulls out a gun and tells Clarke to get on her knees.
She goes. He says put your hands behind your head. He comes closer and closes the airlock so the others are trapped. Clarke says please let them go and he drags her to the glass so they can see her. He says you murdered 381 people and took the lives of my children, brother, and friends.
He says he won’t take just one life in return. Emerson vents the oxygen from the airlock and says she’ll feel what he felt and wants her to watch them die. He says beg me to stop it. She begs please. Her friends start choking. She says Aaron wouldn’t want you to do this. She kicks him off her and goes for the control.
They grapple and he’s on top of her choking her. He stops and says no. He grabs her up and holds her head so she can see the others. Emerson says first you watch them die and asks any last words. She says the Latin phrase and activates the chip then sticks it to his neck.
He struggles and she goes for the airlock door and gets it open. Clarke sees their all alive and choking back to consciousness. The chip destroyed Emerson’s brain and he’s dead. Bellamy brings out Lincoln’s body to Octavia and she uncovers his face then cries.
She kisses his head and sobs some more. She looks at her brother who stands nearby. They set up a pyre for him and Sinclair and burn their bodies. Raven says to Sinclair, may we meet again and Octavia says in Grounder your fight is over and they light the pyre.
Octavia sighs and Bellamy and the others stare as they watch them burn. Octavia says I’ll get the map- let’s go. She marches off with determination. Bellamy watches her go with some pride. Clarke puts the chip back in its container and they pack up some last supplies.
Raven says she’s not going with them and Monty says Alie is in the Ark mainframe and they’re going to look for a backdoor to help take her in. Miller, Bryan and Harper are staying too. Jasper is going with them. Octavia has the map and Clarke and Bellamy load up with her and Jasper.
They say their goodbyes and climb into the Rover and go. Monty looks sad. At the Polis tower, Emori tells Alie the gates to Polis are open. Heda stands because Alie is on her throne. Alie says it’s time to fill the city of light.
