Alycia Debnam-Carey of 'The ' tells all about Lexa's big kiss | webob.info
However, what has easily been the most compelling relationship throughout Season 2 has been the one between Clarke and Lexa, two leaders from opposite . “The fact that Clarke is trying to transcend her tribalism is really a direct result of her relationship with Lexa. Lexa helped her see the world. The Finale: Will Clarke and Lexa's Budding Romance Survive the War? “ It's such a positive thing; this type of relationship isn't something.
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 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. This is not a show that revolves around relationships, but this connection felt as though it was written in the stars.
Also, it would have been odd and sketchy for them not to act like normal, sexual adults. Lexa is in Season 3, but she and Clarke are intimate for some time before Lexa dies. We get to see more of their happiness and even a touch of domesticity as their relationship develops. The more she loved Clarke, the more she was afraid that would lead her away from her primary goal, which is keeping her people alive.
This is a reasonable and defensible desire, and this is where the compression of the season causes problems. But it never sat right with me, never, in part because it was one of the worst-written episodes in the history of the show and this is a show that once featured a demonically possessed truck. A great character — who is also a lesbian — got a stupid death in a crappy, astoundingly tin-eared episode for no reason. Truly, there was no defensible reason, and it really bothered me in a number of ways.
But I finished out the season, even though the show had done other really dumb stuff in the past do not start me on the pointless death of Rufus.
Various patterns had finally gotten to me, I realized the summer after Season 10 ended. Season 3[ edit ] In "Wanheda: Part Two," attackers on a jeep turn out to be Arkers who landed separately. Their numbers have dwindled to 63 due to conflict with the community called Ice Nation and they accept Kane's offer to come to Arkadia, where the other Sky People live.
Part of the group continue to search for Clarke, who has been on the run for three months due to now being a legend and subsequent target because of her defeat of the Mountain Men after Lexa's betrayal. This has earned her the nickname "Wanheda" commander of death. Indra, one of Lexa's best and most trusted warriors, warns Lexa that the Ice Nation is marching on her; Indra is there when bounty hunter Roan the banished Ice Nation prince brings Clarke to Lexa, who sought to capture Clarke before members of Ice Nation did.
Still angry at Lexa for her betrayal, Clarke is dragged out kicking and screaming while vowing revenge on Lexa. Lexa tells Clarke that she intends to initiate the Sky People into her coalition as the thirteenth clan. Clarke believes Lexa only wants this because her Clarke's defeat of the Mountain Men has made Lexa look weak.

Lexa focuses on sparring with Aden, a Nightblood she has been training for the role of Commander. Nightbloods are Grounders with black blood; they are the only Grounders who can become commanders. As Titus Lexa's right-hand man and former mentor wants Lexa to kill Clarke because he feels that Clarke has weakened her reputation, Roan suggests that Clarke kill Lexa. In the end, Clarke cannot do it and Lexa apologizes for her betrayal. Emerson, the last survivor of Mount Weather, is revealed to be alive.
In "Watch the Thrones," in a fight to the death for the right to the throne, Queen Nia chooses her son Roan to fight Lexa. She and Clarke later bond as Clarke tends to her wounds.
In "Hakeldama," Clarke, Lexa, and other Grounders discover an army of fallen Grounders, slain by Pike the new and destructive leader of the Sky People and his followers.
Indra is found wounded and says Bellamy persuaded Pike to let her live in order to tell Lexa that the Sky People reject the newly-formed coalition. Lexa allows Clarke's return to Arkadia to tell Bellamy and the others to step down.
Clarke fails to convince Bellamy, but convinces Lexa to end the cycle of violence in hopes of peace. In "Bitter Harvest," Lexa worries that by trying to make peace instead of engaging in war, she is betraying the commanders who came before her. Clarke assures her that her legacy will be peace. Roan has Emerson, the last Mountain Man, delivered to Clarke; she must decide his fate. She ultimately decides to let Lexa banish him. Octavia and a man named Semet walk in claiming the Sky People destroyed their village.
Discussing the situation, Titus wants Lexa to destroy the thirteenth clan while Clarke thinks they just need time to take out Pike from the inside. Speaking to everyone, Lexa orders the armies not to attack, but instead make a perimeter around Arkadia and says that any Sky Person found past the five mile buffer will be killed.
Semet is angry at this and attempts to kill Lexa, but is stopped by Titus who kills him. Later, Titus is against Clarke staying, believing she further endangers Lexa's life.
He warns Lexa that, just like with Costia, she may not be able to separate feelings from duty. Lexa is enraged at this, reminding him that because she let Ice Nation into her coalition even after they cut off Costia's head and sent it to her bed, she is more than capable of separating feelings from duty. Later, Clarke goes into Lexa's room and realizes she is saying goodbye.
Clarke says the reason she is going back is because the Sky People are her people. Lexa says that this devotion is what makes Clarke the person she is. Clarke suggests that maybe someday they will owe nothing more to their people, and Lexa responds with "May we meet again. Afterward, Clarke admires Lexa's tattoos, pointing out there are only seven circles on her back despite there being nine participants.
Lexa tells her she got the one on her back on her Ascension Day, and asks to talk about something else. Clarke agrees and they become intimate again.
It is later, as Lexa is running into Clarke's room, that Lexa is accidentally shot by Titus, who intended to kill Clarke. Clarke catches Lexa as she falls and they take her to the bed. Lexa realizes she is going to die and tells Clarke not to be afraid.Lexa and Clarke "Kiss and Bed Scene" - 3x07 - Thirteen (Subtitulado Español) - The 100
She tells Titus to never harm Clarke again, and he swears he will not. She tells him serve the next commander as he served her. Clarke continues to try and save Lexa, but she tells Clarke that her spirit will find a new commander.
She says her fight is over and that Clarke was right that life should be about more than just surviving. Clarke recites the Traveler's Blessing, an Arkadian prayer. As Lexa dies, Clarke kisses her one last time. Titus extracts a tech from Lexa's neck, where her tattoo is. The tech is called "the flame," and it is revealed to be Lexa's spirit.
She was augmented to carry an AI the flame. The flame is how every new commander is chosen, with each new commander becoming a part of the flame. It is only compatible with Nightbloods.
Aden is meant to succeed Lexa, but, in "Stealing Fire," he is murdered by Ontari, a rogue Nightblood who seeks the throne for herself. ALIE is the one responsible for launching a nuclear strike on Earth because she believed it was needed to save humanity from extinction.
This is in contrast to what her creator, Becca, had wanted. With Jaha's help, ALIE has been successful in getting many of the Sky People to swallow a chip that takes away pain emotional or physical and simulates a utopia called "the City of Light. ALIE uses this chip to entice and control people. Clarke had tried to get Luna, a missing Nightblood and rightful heir to the Commander throne as indicated by the tattoos on Lexa's backto accept the flame, but she refused.
Clarke is implanted with the flame with the help of a blood transfusion via a brain-dead Ontari, whose blood is compatible with the flame. Before Lexa sacrifices herself to get Clarke to safety, Clarke tells her that she loves her.
Lexa says that her spirit will always be with Clarke. Development[ edit ] Casting and creation[ edit ] Show creator Jason Rothenberg said he and others involved with the series were aware of Debnam-Carey while casting Clarke in ; although the chance for her to portray Clarke never materialized, her name was brought up while casting Lexa.
He called the casting a "no-brainer"; she did not audition for the role, but was rather offered it. That's kind of what happened in this case," stated Rothenberg, who considered Debnam-Carey's performance on The "amazing". He added, "You know we can't compete on some level with the cache of a franchise like that, with the numbers. No weapons, no power! I was like, 'I don't know what I'm doing!

For the first time in years, Lexa allows herself to feel something for another human and to openly express it, and while Clarke breaks the kiss, it is still an important moment. Clarke was able to chip away at the walls that Lexa had built up, and it is Clarke who finally forces the Commander to feel and express emotion.
Interwoven with the blossoming relationship are the more subtle themes of their relationship. Whereas Clarke teaches Lexa how to once again feel, Lexa teaches Clarke how to lead and how to deal with the stress and the weight of being a leader to her people. Throughout the episodes, Lexa offers Clarke small pieces of advice, words meant to help the woman deal with her importance and the actions that she is forced to take as leader.
Can we please just get back to the plan? You could be a leader that your people look to. Pour their hopes and dreams into. Someone they will fight and die for. She sees the strength that rests within Clarke and the duty that Clarke feels towards her people.
Lexa and Clarke came from two very different places, they grew up in two vastly different cultures, but they are one and the same. Clarke has the strength and the integrity to do what must be done in order to ensure the survival of her people.
They consider what is going to happen next, after things settle and their people are no longer in danger, and Lexa voices her desire for Clarke to travel to Polis with her. Lexa is forced to leave Clarke to take out the shooters, and after having grown together, after having shed the distant manner in which they had first spoken to each other with, the duty to their people ultimately separates them.
The duty to protect my people comes first.
May we meet again. It is a deal that Lexa has to accept, despite the knowledge that this will break Clarke. When season three picks back up, Clarke is struggling to deal with the aftermath of Mount Weather and the massacre of the lives that she had been forced to take.
Meanwhile, Lexa is moving heaven and earth in order to find Clarke. The rough relationship that is presented once Clarke is in Polis adds another complex layer to their relationship. This is shown when Roan gives Clarke a knife to kill Lexa with. What the two women have been through and what they have each done is something that haunts them both. With this newly formed alliance, Lexa will never have to abandon Clarke again. As Lexa stated at Mount Weather, the duty to her people comes first, and Lexa will do everything in her power to keep her people safe, which now includes Skaikru.
I swear fealty to you, Clarke kom Skaikru. I vow to treat your treat your needs as my own and your people as my people. She promises Clarke that she will never again abandon her or hurt her in the way that she has.
She will treat Clarke as she treats herself. Furthermore, the Commander, the woman who bows before no one, is bowing before Clarke.
Whereas Wanheda had bowed before the Commander, Lexa, the girl, is bowing before Clarke, something much more intimate and sincere.
Clarke and Lexa: The Evolution of Their Relationship and Its Lasting Impact
And when Lexa agrees to battle Roan to the death, Clarke, the woman who had only weeks before hated the Commander, cannot bear the thought of seeing her die, and she takes matters into her own hands in an attempt to save the woman who she is slowly realizing her love for. But she is forced to watch as Lexa battles anyway, and the expressions on her face say it all.
As Lexa is knocked to the ground and is rendered weaponless, her heart drops. Two women, not two leaders. Their relationship continues to mend as the season progresses, and their love for one another becomes a more prominent thing. Clarke has allowed her to see things in a different light. Clarke has offered Lexa hope; hope for a better life, hope for love, and hope for a world where there is peace and where blood must not have blood.
Lexa, on the other hand, has allowed Clarke to heal. She has solidified that what Clarke felt after killing those at Mount Weather was real, she has expressed her sorrow and taken part of the blame for the actions that Clarke was forced to take, and she offered Clarke acceptance for what she has done. With this put in place, Clarke is forced to make the ultimate decision:
