Clarke consistently does whatever she deems necessary to protect those she deems her people.  This season "her people" has narrowed to Madi instead of the 100 so it's harder to take, but it's consistent.  Octavia is just "I'm tough rawr murder!"

Excellent observation on Clarke and what drives her.
Also dead on about Octavia, who could have ended this season’s drama multiple times already, had she just swallowed her pride (not easy to do i get that) for the greater good.

After the visions Madi had from the Flame in the most recent airing, I'm doing a rewatch of key episodes that feature Becca Pramheda and Cadogan's Second Dawn cult.  I started with episode 7 from season 3 and I noticed something I'd like opinions on.

The huge tower in Polis that the Commander resided in, do you think it is the remains of the Polaris space station's middle section?  The way this episode (3x07) frames the space station and then the next scene focuses on the tower in Polis makes me feel like that's the intention.  They look extremely similar in paneling and the little ridges on the sides, and it would explain why this huge tower is still standing while everything else around it was wiped out by the bombs (Polaris was shot down by the Ark after the nuclear conflagration). 

At the end of the episode Becca gets out of her escape pod (which is scorched and darkened by re-entry) and the camera again focuses on the tower (which is similarly darkened and wrecked, but notably more intact than the other buildings around her).

In 3x08, there is the following conversation:

Quote
Jaha: How sure are you that the debris from the 13th Station fell into the ocean?

Raven: A.L.I.E. and I ran the trajectories a thousand times, literally a thousand times.

Jaha:  But what is the actual probability that you're right?

Raven: Between 75% and 80%.

Jaha: Not good enough. Keep looking.

Seems like the writers are calling attention to the idea that Polaris might not have fallen into the ocean given both the percentage and the fact it's being discussed at all.

What do you guys think?

^^^i think your theory makes sense. If its true, i’ve no clue what the repercussions might ne, though.

Just caught up w. Last week’s ep.
Nice to see the doc’s pet serial killer finally do something.
Octavia’s petty move just shows how far over the edge she’s gone. All she’s had to do for ages now, is just be reasonable.

This is pretty much word for word what she said in the last ep.
Kallor FTW.

As for Octavia, seeing what she was forced to do during the dark year doesnt make her more sympathetic to me, it makes things like pushing for this war and burning the algae farm seem that much more despicable.

^^^fair enough.
Tell you what, i’ve never been particularly enamored of Kane, but those flashbacks brought him to a new low for me. 
You dont want to eat the meat, dont eat the fucking meat.
Dont make a spectacle of it, and rile up other ppl, who are already having a hard time w. this step.
I LOATHE ppl who think being on their high horse is so important it circumvents reality.

Well that was an interesting finale. Wasn't expecting them to go there. Feel I'm gonna get cheated next season though.

^^^I wondered what -K-M- meant by that. Fucking McCreary!

The last act of the finale was pretty cool. Monty really killed it. I was choking up. Interested in how next season goes down. This show never goes where i expect it to, i’ll give it that.

They did a good job of the casting of Monty and Harpers kid.  He really did look like a mix of the two.  I wonder if we will really see any alien shit of will we get cheated out of it.

The kid is good casting visually, yeah. His lines were good too. Seems a fun addition to a cast thats gotten much older as the series has gone on.

Not sure how i feel about the alien stuff. The show’s thrown a few creatures at us (this season’s worms, a mutant gorilla, the first ep. had something really big in the water), but its never been the focus.
