Hey there, 26 year old TV junkie, podcaster, and aspiring screenwriter here. I graduated from Connecticut College with a degree in Film Studies and I love watching TV almost as much as I love criticizing it. My favorite shows include Buffy, The 100, Doctor Who, LOST, Jessica Jones, Breaking Bad, and so many more. Podcasting has been a passion of mine for over 7 years and I've covered a wide variety of (what I'd consider) guilty pleasure TV. This includes everything from Glee to MTV's Scream, to Girl Meets World. I love diving deep into a show, dissecting its storytelling, and commenting on the social and representational messages it provides. Currently, I reside in the Greater Boston area where I do freelance video editing for numerous companies. I've made several short films and I'm currently converting my basement into a mini studio so that I can build a YouTube channel. In my free time I design amateur video games using the Unity Game Engine and go to comedy shows with my wonderful girlfriend.

  1. It is amazing how fast the pace picks up. The locations alterate without any textual overlays. In one moment one is on Bardo, the next moment on Sanctum to get fast to Nakara. Only the respective group of people is the indicator where the scene takes place.
    The word Nakara has many meanings, so it means sound or word or stands for the language of an Australian tribe with the same name. This complexity is expressed although in this episode. Raven’s discussion with Clark about her actions in reactor in Sanctum and her fears, Clarke’s approval, Sheidheda’s speech to Nelson, Indra’s speech as Heda to Woncru, and Gabriel’s whispered “I surrender” show the meaning and power of words. It has the power to liberate, convince and seduce. But it can kill, too.
    At least, Indra emerges from the second row. Already in the last episode she presented herself as a potential leader. Given Sheidheda’s uprise and the danger for Wonkru, Indra recalls the tradion of Heda. Madi is supposed to show herself as Heda, but is not up to task and, preferably, wants to play soccer with the other children. In a council, Indra shows herself to be a born Heda without the need of the flame or a sign.
    John Murphy, who kept switching sides to safe his life and existence, overcomes his selfish view confronted with the fate children are going to suffer. However, he remains true to himself in it.
    What happen to Echo? She is in her own Bardo, because an echo dies when the source of its reflexion, and even if it is only supposed to be, no longer exists or makes any sound anymore. She takes the voices of the others in order to be able to make at least a sound.
    Dyoza is back again, joins and flees with Gabriel, Echo, Hope, and Octavia. Why Gabriel makes the others incapable of action and then surrender, does not clear come out clearly. Is it because of Echo’s unpredictability? I think it makes only sense if Gabriel protects someone of the group. And this, if I jugded it correctly last time, it could be Dyoza’s daughter, Hope.


  2. I don’t understand why some people think that what Gabriel did, didn’t make sense. I get not liking the outcome since the episode was about them escaping and now they back to being prisoners, but the plan was to go to an UNBREATHABLE place.
    After 5 years with Orlando they weren’t sure he wouldn’t betray them, but yeah, let’s trust Levitt and go to a place we won’t be able to breathe. I think he was the only one making sense.
    Besides, he spent too much time watching Echo and Hope making reckless decisions (he just saw Echo kill an old man holding a bunch of flowers!!! can you blame him?)
    I think after that he got tired of following them and their plans, and I’m glad he said he’s not just curious about the anomaly but that he wanted to live. I wanted to see him make decisions as well.
    And I think the reason why he didn’t stay and let the others leave is that he cares about them, his storyline so far was with these 4 women, S6 with Diyosa and O and S7 with Hope and Echo. He thinks he’s saving them because, by staying, they have a better chance to live.

    Ps. Sorry for the grammatical mistakes I’m from Argentina, my English isn’t excellent
