Throughout the episodes, Lexa offers Clarke small pieces of advice, words meant to help.

There are a lot of intriguing questions to chew on. All that criticism comes in the context of having been a fan since Season 1 sidebar: Before I begin talking about Lexa, I want to say that if you were hurt or deeply dismayed by her death — or if you had another reaction of another flavor — I respect your position.
Like many of you, I have complicated feelings about some aspects of the episode. Many viewers who communicated with me appear to be having complex and difficult reactions as well, and the ones who tweeted to me did so in respectful ways. But it was clear from reading The that some fans were angry. We might theoretically understand why Monty would side with his mom, but even that character got short shrift Monty and Jasper getting less screen time than Pike this season really gets my teeth grinding, and I always want more Raven.
All in all, the writing this season has regularly skipped over key moments, left important developments off-screen and missed opportunities to develop character motivations and elaborate on important themes.
At some point, in the eyes of some viewers, it drives right into a ditch. I expected Lexa to die this season, especially given that Alycia Debnam-Carey is a series regular on a hit show on another network. I expected her and Clarke to sleep together at some point, and to me it made sense that they would do so when they were both feeling quite vulnerable because they might never see each other again.
Their love scenes and the deathbed scene were, considered on their own, spectacular. My tears made that difficult. But back to Clarke and Lexa.
Two people in a vulnerable, stressful situation gave in to their longstanding attraction and had sex. Soon after, political machinations led to the death of one of them. Both knew their relationship was never going to work on a long-term basis, which gave their brief time together extra sweetness and pathos. But it was always going to hurt, given these characters and the actors bringing them to life. No Lexa in Season 3. No Heda in Polis or anywhere else would have meant no Clexa pain.
Lexa is in Season 3, but she and Clarke never become intimate. Perhaps less heartbreak when Lexa dies.
‘The 100’ Creator on Lexa Controversy: ‘I Would’ve Done Some Things Differently’
The chemistry between the actors is so potent and the relationship had been generally written so well that it would have been deeply frustrating had they never hooked up. Please feel free to join this debate and share your thoughts. As always, I'm assuming most of you readers are very up-to-date on what's currently going on in The In the Season 3 premiere we get an overview of what has been going on, the most important fact being that Clarke is being hunted by everyone.
In the most recent episode, Clarke faces Lexa for the first time since Lexa made a deal with the Mountain Men, leaving Clarke with no other choice than to terminate everyone in Mount Weather and as you can imagine, it didn't go very well. All this occurs, while the thin line between peace and war is starting to fade and war is on the verge of breaking out again. Oh my oh my That was the season 2 theme, building up more pain and the destruction than in the first season.
Lexa did betray Clarke, like it or not, even if it was for her people. Who says Clarke wouldn't have done the same thing? Lexa pushed Clarke into a position, Clarke wasn't ready to deal with. How could she justify her actions? Even if she saved her people, she took innocent lives to achieve it.
And we all know how Clarke feels about war. Her efforts restored peace or something close to it. The confrontation in the last episode alone was enough to show us how Clarke feels about the whole situation. She ran from her problems, but like always, they caught up with her. They even outran her. Clarke is the one thing standing between peace and war - that, Lexa, and the Ice Nation. They are from different worlds. Just take Mount Weather as an example. The ground changed Clarke.
She said so herself. War is brewing and everyone can need all the allies they can get. Clarke is known as Wanheda and feared by all grounders. Lexa knows how valuable the illusion of Wanheda's powers is. Ah, I'm guessing that a few of you here are Bellarke shippers. It would be foolish not to bring up the two. They're best friends, partners in crimebut could there also be more between them?

Bellamy does have a girlfriend right now, but that reunion was full of emotion. I'm just going to leave it at that. If they ever do explore the possibility of romance between Bellamy and Clarke, it will certainly be an interesting avenue. I have nothing against it, but I do think it's an area that would have to be explored very slowly and carefully, as so much is to be lost if their relationship doesn't work out.
Clarke and the new girl, Niylah. We also can't simply ignore the fact that Clarke had a very hot one night stand with someone. What if the writers will bring her back into the picture? Clarke and her people.
