The 100 killed off one of its most beloved characters. It’s safe to say that this is the one episode I’m not too thrilled about recapping. But how are you doing? Because I am definitely not okay. Lexa’s dead. We lost an amazing character, but we’ll get more into that towards the end, because apparently other things happened.

It’s going to be hard, but lets take a deep breathe and wipe the tears away.
(A Must Watch) The 100 'Thirteen' Spoilers (March 8, 2016)For those of you who are hardcore The 100 fans, you may be surprised to learn that in Episode 8, it is not all about grieving, but rather about regrouping and finding a way forward, according to TV Guide. The 100 is set in a post-apocalyptic world and in modern days, a show like this would take several episodes to grieve the loss of a major character. But, in this world, it is all about staying in front of things before they get you killed.

The episode picks up right where we left off last week: Titus is still looking for answers about the key, which we come to find out is actually the holy symbol of the Commander. Murphy tells him about Jaha and that the women in red would be waiting for whomever swallowed this key.
Flashback 97 years ago to space station Polaris.
We finally meet Becca, who created A.L.I.E. It ends up that A.L.I.E cracked the “kill all launch” codes, which made Becca activate her self-destruct mode, but it failed. I guess when you create something that can destroy an entire planet, it shouldn’t be too much of a shock that she’s can also figure out how to disable her own self-destruct function.
It’s Ascension Day in Polis, when they celebrate the fallen Commanders (and of course I just now catch how that foreshadows Lexa’s death). The celebrations are interrupted by a Grounder leader, Semet, who has Octavia hostage. He wants revenge for Pike attacking the villages. Titus continues to push Lexa: he wants blood for blood.
Clarke comes up with ways to overthrow Pike. In the end, Lexa takes Clarke’s advice over Titus’. So, bad news for Semet. She wants to march on Arkadia so it can be contained. Lexa wants to give Skikru a chance to take out Pike. But if any Sky crew member is caught across the line, they will be subjected to a kill order. Semet would rather have vengeance, and tries to attack Lexa. Titus kills him. Again, blood must have blood.
Up in Polaris, it’s Unity Day, where all 13 space station are to join and become one: The Ark. But before Polaris can join the others, they find out that Becca had been working on an A.L.I.E 2.0, who she believes that can help save them. The original A.L.I.E didn’t understand what it meant to be human, but 2.0 does.
In theory, this sounds great, because A.L.I.E. 2.0 (hereafter A2) would be able to answer any question and see any mistakes humans might not. A2 would help everyone on the Ark survive longer. But then again, there’s always the chance that A2 could destroy everything.

Lexa wants Clarke to stay in Polis as her guest, but Titus, who just isn’t thrilled about Clarke’s influence over Lexa, reminds the latter that her feelings for Clarke put her in danger and it’s best to send Clarke home. Titus brings up Costia, who paid for Lexa’s mistakes when the Ice Queen took her head. Lexa, surprisingly, doesn’t throw him off the top of Polis, but says she is more than capable of separating her feelings from her duty.
Murphy fails to taking down Titus, which isn’t a big surprise. He gives Titus a little history lesson about Polis actually being Polaris, and how it was the only station that wasn’t able to join the Ark. It blew up, but it seems a woman escaped.
Back on Polaris, Becca, who takes a lot of pride in her work, still refuses to hand over the code that contains A.L.I.E 2.0. Although Becca won’t destroy A2, she’s risking the lives of everyone on Polaris. Becca ends up taking a shuttle to Earth while Polaris is blown up.
Octavia tells Clarke it’s best to go back home, but Clarke believes she can do more if she stays. Octavia says their people need her and if she doesn’t come, she isn’t the person she thought Clarke was.
Clarke goes to tell Lexa goodbye, they both express hope that one day they will owe nothing more to their people. Lexa tells Clarke she loves her and the two are finally able to experience a moment of happiness together.
Clarke heads back to her room to finds Murphy tied up and Titus holding a gun. Titus tells her he’s sorry it’s come to this and attempts to kill Clarke. Clarke is able to dodge him, but Lexa comes storming in and takes a bullet to the stomach.
Clarke and Titus move Lexa to the bed as Clarke tries to save her, and Lexa tells her not to be afraid. Titus begins a Grounder ritual while Lexa tells him to never harm Clarke again. Clarke won’t let Lexa die, but she tells Clarke her spirit will find the next Commander and they will protect her.
“I don’t want the next commander, I want you.”
No, it’s fine. It’s just my heart breaking all over again.
Lexa lets Clarke know she was right: life is about more than just surviving. Clarke gives Lexa the Traveller’s Blessing. It’s one of the most beautiful and painful scene The 100 was ever given us.
In peace, may you leave the shore. In love, may you find the next. Safe passage on your travels until our final journey to the ground. May we meet again.
We see Becca safely landing on Earth, surrounded by the fallen Polaris station. She is greeted by other survivors while wearing a suit that says “Commander” and tells them she’s here to help. It’s revealed that Becca has implanted the chip that holds the code to A.L.I.E 2.0 into her own neck. Titus then pulls the exact same chip from Lexa’s neck and calls it the “Spirit of the Commander,” meaning that Becca was indeed the first Commander and created the first Grounders.
And the tears are back. Wow, just wow. Talk about a heart-shattering episode. Not only did the episode give us an emotional death scenes of the series, but it also dumped a hell of a lot of information on us. It’s pretty awesome to see how everything and everyone is related in some way. But lets get back to Lexa. It’s going to take me a long time to recover. Of course I’m upset, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t also really angry about Lexa’s death. Clarke and Lexa are finally able to be together, and then it all gets ripped away. It hurts.
But if we’re being realistic, Lexa’s death shouldn’t have come as that big of a shock. When it was announced in the middle of season 2 that Alycia Debnam-Carey had been cast in the AMC series Fear The Walking Dead, we all knew that Lexa could be killed off. But when that didn’t happen at the end of season 2, we were still able to keep hope alive.
It’s also difficult to really come to terms with Lexa’s death when other characters like Jasper have been speared through the chest and dragged for miles, yet still survived. But Clarke couldn’t save Lexa? We can’t have the best of both worlds, I guess. Creator Jason Rothenberg told TV Line that he knew they’d have Alycia for only seven episodes. It seems Lexa’s death was inevitable and that there wasn’t any chance to leave a door open for her return.
I would have loved to see Lexa go out in battle instead of by accident, shot by the guy who’s been trying to protect her all season, but that’s the irony of it all. I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful goodbye scene. We got to watch the relationship between Clarke and Lexa blossom and it’s hard to let it go. Lexa was a strong leader, a fierce warrior, and a gentle lover. Alycia Debnam-Carey brought so much passion to the character, and it’s what really fans fall in love with her.
Lexa left such a huge impact on us, The 100, and Clarke, and we’ll never forget her.
May we meet again, Lexa.
