Exactly 1 week ago my friend convinced me to watch the first episode of one her favorite shows, The 100. As of now, a week later, I am halfway through the second season. Yes it is that good. The show is loosely based of the books by Kass Morgan, but when I loosely, I mean loosely. But it is amazing. The characters are awesome, the story line is fascinating and every episode is packed with excitement.
Our main character is Clarke Griffin, and she is one of “the hundred”. She is a juvenile delinquent on the space station, the Arc, where the last of human kind lives after a nuclear war. However that space station is running out of air, so the government decides to send the hundred to earth to see if it is safe for humans to survive there. Clarke is smart, a sort of doctor in training, and her mother is on the council so is considered one of the “elite” and privilege, which earns her the nickname “princess”. But she is smart enough to realize how things need to be organized in order to keep people safe and get things done.
Another of our main characters is Bellamy Blake. He is not technically one of the hundred but instead snuck aboard the ship that carried them down to watch out for his sister Octavia. He is stubborn and acts like he does not have a care in the world. At first this causes him and Clarke to butt heads but he begins to come around and the two are able to work together to lead the hundred in an attempt to keep everyone safe.
So I’m not really looking to do a summary for you, all I want to do is vent about how Bellarke is not a thing yet on the show. In the books, they’re a couple but in the show the closest we’ve ever gotten is 2 kisses (1 on the cheek) and 2 hugs. And Clarke and Bellamy are literally perfect for each other. They balance each other out perfectly and they clearly care for each other. There are so many scenes where the sexual tension between them is off the charts. But there are also many scenes where we see Bellamy show his vulnerable side, and he only does that with Clarke.
It is killing me that they aren’t together yet and worse than that, because the show is not following the books at all anymore, who knows if Bellarke will ever happen.
But like I said this show is my newest obsession and I mean it. I cannot stop thinking about it and am so caught up in the story line. I’m super excited to start reading the books just so I can have some more Bellarke in my life, and if you check my Pinterest the last 100 pins or so are all things from The 100.
I highly recommend getting on the bandwagon for this show. If you like Supernatural, you’ll like it. If you like Outlander, Hunger Games or Divergent you’ll like it. It’s great and definitely deserves more of a following than it has.
And if you watch the first episode and think “how could Bellamy and Clarke ever be a thing?” just wait.
