Not each present is fortunate sufficient to have a male lead that stands the take a look at of time. The 100 hit the collection’ lottery with Bellamy Blake, a personality that solely received higher and extra beloved because the seasons went on.
Bob Morley effortlessly introduced such a powerful character to life, ensuring Bellamy stood out on- display screen from his first scene. However with that honor got here the burden of coping with something the present could throw your manner.
For Bellamy, that meant season after season of loss of life and destruction, all within the title of sometime doing higher. There was that promise of a contented ending with none follow-through, regardless that Bellamy deserved happiness essentially the most.
Throughout The 100’s seven-season run, Bellamy suffered from each path within the hopes that there was a which means to all of this.
Bob Morley’s presumably final days of filming reflected on the Bellamy legacy with phrases like battered and bruised. There was most likely no higher warning for followers and no higher grasp of what Bellamy’s ending actually felt like.
Wanting again is much more upsetting when you concentrate on how a lot Bellamy Blake gave to The 100 and the way significantly better the collection was due to his presence. However sadly, within the grand scheme of issues, that did not matter, no less than to not the present.
The best way that The 100 handled Bellamy is not all that there’s to the story, and it should not be how followers stroll away from the conclusion.
Bellamy Blake represented the hope he wasn’t afforded, and he took that with him till the top. Followers reflecting on the character ought to take away the real love, loyalty, and promise that he represented.
As a result of the reminiscence that the viewers have of Bellamy is one thing that The 100 won’t ever be capable to strip away.
The 100 and their murky historical past with Bellamy Blake
(I say, screw worry. I’m telling my very own rattling story.)
Simply since you created the character as he exists at this time, that does not imply you needn’t proceed to place within the work.
This was a reminder that the present appeared to wish yearly as soon as The 100 Season 2 ended.
The 100 Season 1 allowed Bellamy Blake to develop, from placing on this present of a egocentric antagonist to letting others see that he was only a brother attempting to take care of his solely household. Bellamy’s coronary heart was all the time his driving pressure, and it was by his experiences on Earth and Clarke pushing him in direction of honesty that he lastly stopped hiding.
Season 2 solely labored off that extra, following Bellamy as he selflessly seemed out for his individuals and tried his greatest to guard as many as doable. This was The 100 letting Bellamy Blake exist because the selfless chief he was all the time meant to be. He was lastly allowed to prosper within the house that he was taking on.
The 100 Season 3 is the place every thing took a flip, with the present utilizing Bellamy as a scapegoat for the journey they selected to discover. After two seasons of telling the story from the principle character’s standpoint, all of the sudden, The 100 wanted to refocus on Grounders and paint them in the very best mild.
The reasoning for that is not even price exploring, however the outcome was throwing characters like Bellamy below the bus. For what? Not solely did The 100 select to pin questionable plot concepts on Bellamy (and Pike), however there was an obvious scene omission that may have given their aspect extra context.
It was confirmed that many scenes that defined the place Bellamy (and Pike) have been coming from ending up on the chopping room ground, which makes it seem to be the male lead’s standpoint would not have worth.
So Bellamy was pressured to take the burden of character deaths that needed to do with behind the scenes points, and he needed to drag round character decisions that weren’t even totally explored from his aspect of the story.
It’s straightforward to see the why of it; if you’ll write a controversial storyline, it solely is sensible to assign it to a personality that the viewers loves.
They’re extra more likely to care whether it is related to somebody they wish to perceive. And this solely began the pattern for The 100 to pressure brutal storylines onto Bellamy, utilizing his real reputation as motivation.
The 100 Season 4 continued forcing Bellamy to shoulder the blame for these decisions that also did not add up. Bellamy not solely had it reminded to him within the narrative, however he additionally had a borderline suicidal outlook on his future. He was a part of a choice that he regrets, which implies he should not be allowed to stay previous Pramheda.
And this was a sample that the complete season struggled with. They put characters like Bellamy and Jasper into unhealthy psychological well being states with out doing the precise work of attempting to get them out. There wasn’t sufficient thought put into the message that comes from watching these two fundamental characters wrestle with their existence.
Jasper was doomed from the start, together with his sickness profitable out in the long run. Bellamy, then again, dealt together with his sickness in order that it might serve The 100. Each time that the present wished, they might have Octavia, or another person brings up one thing to attempt to make him really feel unhealthy about actions he was working by himself.
That was the theme that arrange Bellamy into the time bounce, not permitting him to do a lot else besides to assist others and blame himself.
Then the present kicked it up a notch throughout The 100 Season 5, as soon as once more utilizing the love that existed for Bellamy from the viewers to do the arduous work that the narrative refused. Six years later, and right here Bellamy was making excuses for different individuals’s errors.
First, he had the job of reframing Echo’s offscreen character improvement. The 100 determined she was now not a villain who might create obstacles for the principle characters, and as a substitute, she was now of them. However no work was accomplished throughout the narrative to permit for that to occur regularly.
As an alternative, six years later label was stamped on our display screen, and now this new model of a personality we weren’t meant to love appeared on the present. Even worse, Bellamy then grew to become the voice of the writers’ room, attempting to elucidate why Octavia, aka the viewers, is supposed to simply accept Echo as is.
It eliminated any company Bellamy was meant to have, decreasing him to a mouthpiece. On high of that, Bellamy was put in a relationship with Echo, additional attempting to get the viewers on board with out placing in any work past having an unpopular character begin courting the male lead.
This continued all through the season, with Bellamy having to play a mediator between Echo and Octavia. There have been makes an attempt to discover how that position takes a toll on him, however not sufficient of that was accomplished for the great of Bellamy’s particular person journey.
There was some narrative fixation on an older brother having to separate himself from the duty he thinks he has in direction of his youthful sibling, but on the identical time, it wasn’t all the time accomplished for his profit.
Bellamy and Octavia’s story ended roughly the place it began, and there was no thought left for Bellamy.
The 100 Season 6 was a restart, or it had the potential for that. The collection as a complete might have had a contemporary journey unfold transferring ahead if solely The 100 wished to discover the potential there totally.
The time on Sanctum utilized Bellamy together with his largest power, the love that he has for sure individuals. Particularly, the love that he has for his soulmate. Very like Season 2, this was the place Bellamy shined as a result of the main focus was on him being pushed by his feelings.
It was invigorating attending to discover that motion with Bellamy on the helm of it, particularly when rescuing Clarke Griffin. However because the season wrapped and Bellamy was pulled into one other storyline, it’s important to marvel how a lot Season 6 contributed to its male lead.
It’s straightforward to see the place Bellamy helped Season 6 and the storylines launched by him, however how a lot of that was used to assist Bellamy’s progress. Simply because Bellamy is in place as a pacesetter and because the fundamental character doesn’t suggest he can simply be placed on the backburner to assist everybody else for the remainder of the time.
The 100 used the chance to have Bellamy because the group protector with out displaying the steps taken to discover how this all advantages him. In brief, Bellamy Blake is all the time serving to others with out there being time or house for something to profit him.
Gone have been the storylines that took Bellamy and his progress under consideration, and as a substitute, he was there to make the followers care about an edgy plot or a complicated narrative selection.
The 100 grew bored of investing in Bellamy Blake’s story because it pertains to him, similar to they develop uninterested in many fundamental characters after a number of seasons. And as a substitute of remembering that the present nonetheless wants to permit the lead male character to prosper, he as a substitute grew to become a driving pressure for everybody else’s story.
Primarily the white girls round.
Unsurprisingly this has been discussed before, especially when you consider how much of Bellamy’s personal relationships on the present have been about his connections to white girls that benefited extra in these conditions. Bellamy as soon as once more carried the load for different individuals’s errors, storylines, and makes an attempt at improvement.
They’d be meant to develop, and Bellamy could be the one creating that bridge for them, with none thought of his development.
Even his loss of life scene could not permit it to only be about Bellamy Blake.
Many followers caught onto the truth that Bellamy may not make it to the top, and so the inevitable theories began about how he would meet his finish. Each concept had one factor in widespread: sacrifice.
To his core, Bellamy was a personality that may go to the ends of the world for those he cherished. If he needed to die, it must be to guard the individuals he spent all his time looking for.
Octavia. Clarke. Even Echo. Take your decide, and likelihood is Bellamy would bounce in entrance of a bullet for them as a result of that’s who he’s.
Though it will nonetheless be about another person, Bellamy selflessly dying for his household would have no less than been in-character for the state of affairs. Bellamy is a selfless hero and a considerate chief earlier than he’s the rest.
You needn’t marvel how Bellamy would have favored to be remembered; the reply is all the time linked to the love he had for everybody else.
However The 100 took that and ruined it, nearly out of spite or disinterest within the character they spent all this time on within the first place.
Bellamy Blake died due to random, last-minute modifications, confirmed by Jason Rothenberg himself, and since the present could not miss out on having one other loss of life by the hands of Clarke Griffin. Bellamy Blake did not sacrifice himself sufficient, and Clarke Griffin did not undergo sufficient psychological scarring from the individuals she needed to kill.
It wasn’t about something besides narratively making Clarke wrestle or no matter else they could attempt to spin this as.
Even in loss of life, Bellamy was there to maneuver another person’s story alongside. Or, on this case, to damage any legacy that the feminine lead ought to have had on the finish of her personal present.
Bellamy Blake spent seven seasons serving The 100’s narrative whims, solely to finish up sufferer to the identical tragedy in loss of life as he needed to take care of in life.
The ultimate season’s warfare towards Bellamy Blake
(and have a look at the thanks he received)
Sadly, it is not solely about how Bellamy’s loss of life scene turned out that proves how little the present cared about him. It was the entire season, most of which he wasn’t even there.
As soon as once more, Bellamy Blake went again to his roots in accordance with the narrative, solely present for these round him.
At first, Bellamy was positioned to have this story about discovering Octavia after she disappeared into the Anomaly. This was nothing new for The 100, having Bellamy chase by planets and universes to search out those that have his coronary heart.
It was then introduced that Bob Morley requested to take a break from filming, so Bellamy’s story was presumably reconstructed, so he was lacking as properly. Apart from nobody actually knew, and Bellamy’s absence wasn’t used to carry extra appreciation to the character.
The 100 as a substitute determined to repeatedly drop insults left and proper when it got here to its male lead. It was nearly like they have been getting ready for the stale Etherea “twist” earlier than it even occurred.
The narrative assumed that leaving the viewers with a foul reminiscence of Bellamy earlier than he returned would clearly make the characters extra prepared to simply accept his loss of life.
Besides probably not.
You’ll be able to reshape the characters and their dialogue all you need, however you may’t alter the viewers and their perspective.
The 100 had Hope dig into Bellamy and the way the ladies in his life cared about him. She actually had a word in her that stated to belief Bellamy, and but she nonetheless selected to take the love that existed for Bellamy and discover it to be an inconvenience.
If that wasn’t a dig on the largely feminine viewers that cared about Bellamy, the identical viewers that the present has been attempting to shake for a couple of years now, then I do not know what’s.
The present then continued by randomly stringing him and the followers alongside. He was there for a hazy reminiscence, however then he was “gone” as soon as once more. Not one of the characters have been allowed to mourn him for very lengthy, regardless that everybody pretended that was an precise loss of life for a plot twist later within the season.
Even when the present did not wish to spend time on emotions that they felt did not matter as a result of Bellamy would come again, they select one character to maintain Bellamy’s reminiscence alive, and it wasn’t even the appropriate particular person.
By some means Echo was the one one allowed to recollect Bellamy, and the jokes truthfully write themselves. Both The 100 did it knowingly out of spite as a result of that’s the final particular person the viewers needs or cares about in relation to Bellamy, or they do not know what is going on on with the best way their present was perceived.
Or they do not care, which might be essentially the most sensible possibility.
From there, The 100 had Jackson carry up drama from two seasons in the past to Madi. At first, it did not make sense why Bellamy’s tough resolution to guard each Madi and Clarke was circulating once more. However then you concentrate on the way it was setting Bellamy again up within the villain position to organize for his loss of life.
Having that reminiscence of how “flawed” Bellamy was to Madi earlier than is in some way meant to assist information the viewers into pondering he’s as soon as once more a menace to Madi that Clarke has to kill off. Besides he is not, and that excuse fell flatter than Clarke’s apology, but it surely was nonetheless a scene selection that the present made.
Then for that last dig, the present created some chaos with Echo to maintain the season going from episode to episode after which dug her out of that gap by throwing Bellamy into it. Echo spent the higher half of the season utilizing Bellamy as a purpose to homicide others and to be her regular unruly self.
All of it led as much as Echo discovering out that Bellamy died and selecting his reminiscence as an inspiration for mass genocide. It was one other instance of Echo utilizing Bellamy as a defend to cover from her personal unhealthy decisions. Apart from this time, he wasn’t defending her; she was simply taking him down together with her.
Echo’s view of her boyfriend made him sound like somebody prepared to kill at any level, not the person who was actively attempting to do higher and dealing to cease extra loss of life from taking place. For all of the restricted screentime that Echo was given because it associated to her “useless” boyfriend, you’d assume she would have a greater understanding of him.
As an alternative, she advised his sister, his soulmate, and his pals that none of them knew Bellamy as a result of they do not assume he would decide into mass genocide for vengeance.
To make it even worse, Raven joined in and talked about Bellamy serving to Pike with out understanding his actions. He did not kill individuals for no purpose, and to comply with that up with how he was a special man with them in house is proof that Raven did not know him in any respect.
All of that ready us for Bellamy to return again for one final mission; promote the viewers on the alien heaven coated in Groot lights.
The 100 Season 7 Episode 11 did nonetheless really feel like a love letter to Bellamy Blake when you knew the place to look. A lot of it was utilizing Bellamy to tackle yet one more burden, but it surely wasn’t all about that.
It was the fastidiously crafted manner that Bob Morley managed to take that and switch it into extra. Between the strains was a misplaced man who wished peace and wished to be the particular person Monty requested him to be.
Bellamy simply wished that glimpse of heat mild that allowed him to be together with his individuals, and that allowed him to search out happiness. He took on all these wars, this loss of life, and all that destruction as a result of all of it was meant to be an actual life on the finish of it.
As an alternative, he stored being pressured to climb his manner out of yet one more harmful state of affairs, all so he might find yourself on an unknown planet with no manner out.
If anybody on The 100 deserves a contented ending, it was Bellamy, however as a substitute, he was rapidly shoved right into a follower position for Cadogan. From there, he was continuously attempting to get the individuals who he trusted for years to listen to him out, just for none of them to present something he stated any worth.
Bellamy could not have all the time agreed with each selection these round him made, however he listened, and he tried to know. And the one factor he received again is judgment and mock. However it will be one factor for the characters with no different perception to really feel that manner, regardless that they need to belief him simply because it’s Bellamy.
However The 100 solely aided that by not giving any readability to something. This afterlife factor is the joyful ending and the which means of the complete collection, but it surely nonetheless wasn’t clear if this was even actual till the final 5 minutes of the collection finale.
The present gave this introduction to the character with the least belief hooked up to his title, they usually tried to contain Bellamy to make it appear reputable, however they set it up towards him on the identical time.
It’s one factor to have Bellamy assist this unknown perception system; it’s one other to have him in that position however to make it unclear whether or not it’s even the appropriate aspect.
As soon as once more, the present did not care sufficient concerning the Bellamy of all of it. This results in the loss of life scene that all of the sudden made Bellamy a hazard to everybody due to a sketchbook.
The person who struggled to maintain his family members protected was now positioned as a menace that Clarke wanted to do away with. Out of the blue, Bellamy would get Madi killed, which made it okay for him to get shot within the episode’s last minutes.
There was no care or thought for the male lead at that second, solely a fast loss of life that made no sense.
The 100 barely revered Bellamy earlier than, they usually had no respect for him within the last hours.
From there, Madi nonetheless gave herself as much as Cadogan and put herself right into a harmful place. Besides now, there was nobody there looking for her, solely Levitt, who was clearly choosing up the scenes Bellamy was meant to have.
Madi nonetheless ended up precisely the place Clarke thought she cease her from going if she killed the one that was there for her all this time. It did not matter anyway, although, as a result of even when Clarke killing Bellamy was an out of character writing selection that would not truly occur, there have been nonetheless no penalties. Clearly,
The 100 had no respect for Bellamy in life, so it selected his loss of life to kick him that one last time.
In what was most likely one of the embarrassing scenes of the collection, The 100 Season 7 Episode 14 opens with Clarke telling everybody what she did. However as a substitute of any sensible rage at Clarke, everybody comes collectively to speak about how Bellamy deserved it.
Bellamy’s sister, who spent all this time ready to inform him that she lastly understood him, hugged his killer and thanked her for killing her brother. Bellamy’s ex-girlfriend, who knew him in contrast to anybody else, consoled Clarke as a result of that wasn’t the true Bellamy anyway, so it’s fantastic.
All of those characters who by no means appreciated Bellamy when he was there for them served because the voice for a showrunner who, on the final second, made up a ridiculous loss of life scene and used this chance to make it sound okay. Bellamy apparently wasn’t himself and would have wished Clarke to kill him.
If The 100 Season 7 might accomplish something, it was the affirmation that nobody knew (or deserved) Bellamy Blake.
In his last moments, the one individuals current for Bellamy have been the Bardo cult members who did not even consider in particular person bonds. But, they have been attempting to assist Bellamy whereas his household killed him and validated it.
From there, it was only a reminder after reminder how a lot of a mistake The 100 managed to make. The Vacationers Blessing that ought to have gone to Bellamy was given to Gabriel, who wasn’t from the Ark and did not even know what it was. Levitt received the redemption journey in Bardo that Bellamy was meant to guide.
All of that and Madi nonetheless wasn’t protected, and everybody even selected to transcend. That is sensible, proper?
Bellamy was first erased from the narrative, then he was torn aside in it, and at last, he was discarded by it. His voice was nonexistent in his last season; as a substitute, the narrative spoke about him, after which the one episode devoted to him was about molding him to promote an alien afterlife that made no sense anyway.
The comparability to the Giving Tree has by no means felt extra actual, with Bellamy giving and giving till there was nothing else for The 100 to take. He was walked throughout till his final scene, and on the finish, he was nonetheless proper.
Bellamy Blake is all the time proper.
Bellamy and Clarke’s Threatening Existence
(I don’t wish to really feel that manner anymore)
It’s nonetheless mindblowing to assume that in a single scene (and a single season), all of the potential over the past six years was simply ruined. The narrative can faux that last-minute resolution made sense, however all it actually did was insult the arduous work that received Bellamy and Clarke the place they have been earlier than.
It wasn’t solely the followers that by no means mattered; the solid and the writers that molded the scenes between the 2 leads additionally had their work utterly rewritten.
The 100 Season 7 tried as arduous as doable to take away any worth from what got here earlier than it, but nobody deserves the facility of stripping us of our love for Bellamy and Clarke’s relationship.
The Bellamy and Clarke that we noticed within the final season have been nothing however shells of their former selves. They weren’t there more often than not, and once they have been, it was to function pawns on the showrunner’s chessboard. And this season proved how straightforward it was for the participant to sacrifice his best property for the sake of shock worth.
It isn’t the followers’ fault that they fell in love with one thing too highly effective for the present truly to decide to in the long run. And pretending that Season 7 made any sense when it got here to Bellamy and Clarke’s bond is pretending the ultimate season thought concerning the journey on the best way to the vacation spot.
Bellamy Blake was a personality who all the time gave every thing to people who he cherished, even when often he solely received a small fraction of that power again. It solely made many love him extra, a selfless fundamental character that deserved to see some reciprocation for the love he put out into the world.
As an alternative, it was like The 100 wasn’t even making a press release about how a lot of Bellamy’s coronary heart was on the road every season; it was an appropriate loss to assist assist the season’s plot greater than the rest.
The one one that noticed how little Bellamy wished for himself when he might give it to his sister was Clarke. She understood him, and he or she valued him as not many others did. The connection shaped from that was inevitable, and it was too highly effective for The 100 to discover.
The present could have walked their plans again, however that does not erase the years of build-up and the scenes the place the actors have been advised to play it romantic. However even when Bellamy and Clarke have been by no means totally canon on display screen, that promise of one thing extra was what set them aside.
Not each potential TV relationship can take nothing and make it a lot from Day 1. Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin had a particular connection, and a last-minute unhealthy resolution should not take away from that. The actual Clarke would not have harm Bellamy, not after the six years of historical past between them.
There were so many ways in which The 100 could have handled Bellamy’s absence without bringing Bellarke down, but it surely actually got here off as if The 100 did not care about any legacy that it had left.
Bellamy and Clarke’s relationship isn’t the only thing the audience was robbed of, but it surely was the largest one contemplating how essential it was to the essence of The 100. Bellamy and Clarke coming collectively have been what constructed The 100 in its premiere season.
The story would not have gotten that far if the present hadn’t clung to the enemies to companions to greatest pals gold that they discovered of their two leads. That’s what the viewers discovered themselves invested in, and that’s what constructed one other season.
The second season explored Bellamy and Clarke at a brand new regular, one the place they worth and respect each other with out query.
They not solely grew to become one another’s particular person; they have been navigating what that meant on this world that they have been nonetheless studying. And it was that separation and what that meant for the chief duo that moved the present into the following season.
From there, the third season explored what it was wish to have Bellamy and Clarke at odds once they know the way a lot they matter to one another. Like the primary season, they did not see eye to eye, however this time it was from a extra emotionally triggering lens.
The 100 solely works when they’re on the identical web page, making sense to discover the alternative. Then the fourth season introduced concerning the finish of the world and what that makes somebody take into consideration.
Bellamy particularly was at some extent the place he knew how a lot Clarke actually meant to him, even when she wasn’t conscious of it but. The groundwork was there for Bellamy to conclude his relationship with Clarke that may get shaken up once they have been separated like by no means earlier than.
That was then a bridge to the fifth season, however this time it was Clarke who has realized issues and has to wrestle with that. Bellamy needed to transfer on in the course of the time bounce whereas Clarke clung to a future with him in it.
Now Clarke was at a drawback the place she was coping with emotions that she could not voice to her companion that she was simply attending to know once more.
The chaos of what that meant reworked what Bellamy and Clarke knew about their relationship simply in time for a brand new planet and a brand new shakeup. Bellamy and Clarke have been lastly comfy, which implies considered one of them needed to disappear.
From there began the sixth season, which also needs to be referred to as the best love completely different journey.
Bellamy spent that total season attempting to get again his soulmate and was pressured to take care of the real loss forward. In the meantime, Clarke was attempting to avoid wasting herself and on the identical time was attempting to achieve out to the one particular person she knew might save her.
The present discovered itself with an episode like The 100 Season 6 Episode 10, the place every thing was on the road, just for the narrative to shrivel up simply as issues have been getting someplace.
That was most likely the foreshadowing that we would have liked as a result of Bellamy and Clarke had hope for extra, however as soon as the ultimate season began, there was no manner the present would do what the duo deserved.
Bellamy and Clarke grew to become too intimidating over time for The 100, and that’s the reason their existence ought to be remembered for precisely that. Their love for each other surpassed planets, their belief in each other drove storylines, and their connection created a which means for The 100.
The two of them were worth the wait as a result of it’s all concerning the seven seasons price of devotion that they’d, not one second of inaccurate writing.
Bellamy Blake Doing Higher Till The Finish
(fears are fears. slay your demons whenever you’re awake. they will not be there to get you whenever you’re asleep)
Bellamy Blake represented the best way that hope and love triumphs above all else. This was a message that The 100 was desperately attempting to stifle, and one the followers must hold believing in.
Whereas Season 7 as soon as once more threw round loss of life and destruction as obstacles, not pondering of the lasting results on the theme of the collection within the course of, it was Bellamy who provided that hope for one thing extra on the market.
Cadogan’s cult could have been missing in sure areas, but it surely wasn’t flawed when it made Bellamy yearn for a life that he truly deserved. And it’s important to marvel if Bellamy being that beacon of affection and life is what received him killed in the long run.
There was no actual thought being put behind killing off your male lead who actually carried the present on his again for years. The 100 loves to assert that emotions are ineffective, however Bellamy Blake made individuals care sufficient to maintain coming again. Which is one thing the plot might by no means accomplish long-term.
He knew precisely how harsh the world was and the way darkish it might make somebody, however he wished greater than that. He was pushed by the promise of doing higher as Monty requested him to.
In a manner, Bellamy’s hope for his ending was that pure outlook that the viewers wished to have for the present’s ending. All of this horrible stuff has to imply one thing if there’s a higher life to stay on the finish of the journey.
However The 100 wished an edgy journey for a random spiritual ending pulled out on the final second, and somebody as cheap as Bellamy did not should make it that far.
That was a selection that the present made, and their legacy suffered. Letting a personality that had a lot love in him survive was too sensible, so as a substitute, issues went the opposite manner. Because of this, The 100 might be remembered for his or her not possible decisions and tragically disappointing finish.
Then again, Bellamy Blake will solely be remembered for the great he gave to the story and the opposite characters. This was somebody that made a contented ending really feel extra tangible, and perhaps he received that from the appreciation that the viewers will all the time have for him.
As a result of whereas the present was speeding to be remembered like different TV reveals, Bellamy Blake wasn’t targeted on how others would keep in mind him. On account of that, his reminiscence is organically ingrained in those who knew him as pure and great.
Luisa spoke to us about how Emori remembers Bellamy as an individual price placing your belief in. Shelby told us that Hope remembers Bellamy as somebody who gave her the consolation she wanted to proceed. Lola talked to us about how Madi remembers Bellamy as an nearly father determine to her.
Taking inspiration from that, Bellamy followers should not take with them the undeserving ending or the underwhelming narrative that The 100 was attempting to spin. As an alternative, the main focus ought to be on the highlights of the character.
Nobody is aware of the essence of who he was, just like the viewers that adopted him for seven seasons, and nobody deserves to resolve how Bellamy ought to be remembered like his followers. He was seen for who he actually was by those who actually knew him for all these seven seasons, the followers.
Bellamy Blake was the personification of doing higher regardless of fixed obstacles attempting to take that hope away from you. He is perhaps gone, however he ended his time on the present persevering with to be led by his coronary heart.
All he wished to do was hold his family members joyful and protected, and he completed a lot extra alongside the best way.
Bellamy Blake’s legacy might be constructed on the limitless love he needed to give, which was solely overpowered by the love he received again in return from the followers that believed in him till the top.
Bellamy deserved extra love than he ever obtained within the present. However perhaps the one love actually deserving of him was the love that the followers have for him all through the years.
Bellamy Blake will not die in useless; the viewers will not let that occur.
How are you feeling trying again on That episode and the season as a complete? Did Season 7 damage the legacy of The 100 for you? What sort of ending would you will have favored to see for Bellamy Blake? Has your opinion modified on something now that the present has been accomplished for a short while?
