The 100: "Ye Who Enter Here" S3, Ep3
February 6, 2016 7:40 PM - Season 3, Episode 3 - Subscribe

IMDB Summary S3, Ep3 Aired: 4 Feb. 2016 Ye Who Enter Here Now with Clarke in her possession, Lexa has the power to force Skikru to become one with the grounders. Kane, Bellamy and Monty continue the search for Clarke, while the Ice Nation prepares to draw first blood against Skikru and the other grounder clans.

VULTURE: The 100 Recap: The 13th Clan The only thing that I wanted from this week's episode of The 100 was a Lexa-Clarke showdown. And though this episode was far from perfect — it's plagued by confusing plot points, a clunky Abby-related misstep, and a gratuitous death — "Ye Who Enter Here" really delivers by exploring the many layers of Clarke and Lexa's relationship.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY The 100 lives on that line between right and wrong; even our favorite characters can make decisions that have us questioning if they made the best choice.

TV FANATIC The 100 Season 3 Episode 3 threw several fantastic twists at us, all the while upping the stakes and complicating the already-complicated relationships between all the major characters.

TV.COM The episode was more streamlined than the previous two that opened Season 3, and that worked in its favor. We didn't have to cut away to Jasper crying, Murphy snarking, or Jaha pontificating, so the momentum never stalled, and the clear focus on the action in Polis and Mount Weather made for a tight hour—the best of Season 3 thus far—with a central theme: the potential further growth and expansion of the Sky People.

I was sure — so damn sure — that the scene with Kane and Abby in the market was the Kane is gonna die today scene. I loved seeing him and Abby so happy and peaceful, so it seemed like he had a bullseye painted on him. But he survived, so I guess this means the election is on? And that Abby might become the voice of those who don't want an alliance, and pin the blame for it on the dude who got tattooed with Lexa's mark.

I'm pretty bummed that Mt Weather got blown up. Seems like a waste of a promising storyline. (Although I can see why the show would want to strike the sets to make room for something new.) And the big reveal of the grounder warrior was a bit of a bust. I was hoping he'd do something more interesting than fridge Gina and blow up the mountain.

This season is moving a lot faster than I thought it would. After episode 1, I figured they'd drag out the return of Lexa for several more weeks. And now we're past that, and already at war with the Ice Nation and meeting the Queen. It seems like that could turn into a problem, but they're doing a good job (especially this week), of balancing character work with monumental plot changes.

The show would never do it, but I'd love to watch a low-stakes hangout episode. The scenes with Raven and everyone arriving at Mt Weather were so chill and fun. I really dug Sinclair's last couple of scenes with Raven, too.

I LOVE this show. Such good twists this episode that I didn't see coming at all. I was so curious how they would deal with the Mt. station but wow they solved that! BOOM! I love seeing Clarke be such a badass during all this. I'm also glad her mom is realizing she can't be everything all the time. An election would be interesting.

I totally knew Bellamy's girlfriend wasn't going to last. They didn't even seem like they had chemistry. Not sure if that acting was intentional or not between them. But their kisses didn't even have a hint of spark to me. Though her death was still sad and also losing so many people at once, too.

I wonder if we'll find out how the mountain guy ended up with the Ice Nation (that was the "cured" mountain guy that got away, right?) I did wish we saw what's going on with Jaha but this was a packed episode already. It was cool to see the grounder market and the society that evolved with the people that survived on Earth.

Overall I'm just super stoked for this season and can't wait to see what happens. This has quickly become one of my favorite shows.

Sadly no awesome Murphy quotes this episode :-(

I was floored when when Clarke said "If you betray me again --" and Lexa says "I won't." gets down On Her Knees and swears fealty to her. That was an extraordinary, high stakes, volcanic, game changing declaration. This episode was more like a season finale than your average "episode 3". This show is so lucky to have 2 actors that bring out the best in each other.

I thought Lexa was gonna propose, and got a tiny bit excited. But I mean, they got time.

My apologies for not linking this review above. It is the best one of all. Toni_watches ... I mean, if you like photo-recaps that are snarky-yet accurate. i.e.

Do we know this girl’s name? Is she in the credits under “Bellamy’s Dead Girlfriend?

It's Gina.

That Lexa kneeling down and swearing fealty to Clarke's people? I about swooned. YOU GO, GIRLS. I ROOT FOR YOU.

The fridging, on the other hand: ugh, show's usually better than that.

Also kinda sad they wasted a giant mountain base.

Oh yeah, and Lexa's kicking a dude in the balls out a high window was the most fun kicking scene since that one in Firefly with the ship's fan or whatever.
