05x09 - Sic Semper Tyrannis

Previously on "The 100"...

Can I show you something?

You don't have to be afraid.

Blood of the First Commander is your blood.

What would it take for you to share the valley?

DIYOZA, ON RADIO: Short of an unconditional surrender, nothing.

Octavia will never surrender.

That's why we're gonna take her out.

Omon gon oson.

Bellamy...

[GASPING]

We'll be in the valley.
We'll have peace.

% of your people are dying.
You're already having symptoms?

Something like that.

MURPHY: We offered to trade you for Raven,

yet here you still are.

Diyoza said no. I can help you.

I'm listening.

ABBY: One of the abscesses broke apart.

It was the sound waves.
I can dissolve them.

I just need more power.

VINSON: Sonic drill. It uses sound waves to pulverize rock.

DIYOZA: Well done, Abby. How soon can you do the others?

MAN ON RADIO: Colonel, it's McCreary.

Looks like he's got prisoners.

DIYOZA: You keep it to yourself for now.

[WHIRRING]

You could've been a miner, Doc.

Miners don't care about destroying

the ground they're digging in.

I did that, my patient would die,

so don't ask me to do it intentionally

because I won't.

VINSON: Colonel, incoming.

DIYOZA: You know what to do. Hide the machine.

[WHIRRING STOPS]

DIYOZA: Vinson, stay out of sight.

[DOOR CLOSES]

Still alive, I see.

No thanks to you or you.

You seem upset, McCreary,

but you'd need feelings for that, so...

[CHUCKLES]

Your errand boy looks better.

Should I be hopeful?

I'm not.

Robert's lungs filled with fluid this morning.

He almost drowned.

Same thing is gonna happen to you soon.

DIYOZA: I came to check on her progress, too.

Maybe we should let her do her job.

My people know you didn't trade for me.

Some of them are even calling for your head.

Well, then it's a good thing my people

have all the guns.

I had them locked up when you came home.

One step ahead, as always.

VINSON: Crowded.

Am I early?

ABBY: No, Vinson. You're right on time.

We should finish this later.

[DOOR CLOSES]

How long does he have left?

ABBY: Untreated, a week, maybe two.

Until then, we only treat the people I trust.

After that, we cure everyone else. Deal?

VINSON: Trust me, Abby, killing someone

and letting them die, they're not the same thing.

DIYOZA: Vinson, please go get the machine.

Thank you.

DIYOZA: Careful, Doc.

He took a thorn out of a lion's foot,

but he's still a lion.

I'll send in the next victim.

[MAN COUGHING]

I still can't believe you helped cure them.

MURPHY: Take it easy. That guy look cured to you?

- Maybe it didn't work.
- It worked. She built it.

Exactly. A war's coming, and yet she passes up

every opportunity we get to weaken the enemy.

- What is your problem?
- Quiet.

Shh.

We're still on the same team, right?

Right?

Good. Then we're agreed.
We kill the pilot.

Then we pop off these collars and run like hell.

- No.
- Now what?

RAVEN: If we can slip the collars,

we don't have to kill him.

Besides, he's more valuable alive.

As a spy, you should know that.

What I know is that a dead man can't fly a ship

or fire missiles at the people we love.

- Valuable how?
- Intel.

We need a distraction to escape, right?

According to Shaw, this place

is a civil war waiting to happen.

McCreary's people hate following Diyoza.

They only did it in space to survive,

but up until then,

McCreary was the alpha dog.

Shaw told you all this?

You want to weaken the enemy,

what's weaker than an enemy at war with itself?

It's not that easy.

War has a way of healing internal divisions.

RAVEN: If they were soldiers, I'd agree,

but look at them.

What's he doing?

EMORI: He's being John Murphy.

The tattoo. He's with McCreary.

Everyone else in here is with Diyoza.

MAN: You son of a bitch.

Hey...

[BOTH GRUNTING]

- Yeah!
- Help!

I agree with Raven.

Should be fun.

[BUZZER]

[DOOR OPENS]

- Clarke.
- Madi.

BELLAMY: She was ready to burn this place down

if she couldn't see you.

Thank you for letting me say good-bye.

BELLAMY: Clarke, this isn't good-bye.

Octavia's sick.

They say she might not wake up.

INDRA: OK, Madi. That's enough.

We can't risk the child being seen here.

She'll be safe now, and so will you.

[POUNDS ON DOOR]

[DOOR OPENS]

Be quick.

What did you do?

Monty's algae.

Oh, my God.

As head of the army, Indra can accept

Diyoza's terms for peace.

By the time Octavia wakes up,

if she wakes up...

She will.

You said that Murphy was fine.

He didn't even have a doctor.

I poisoned my little sister, Clarke.

Hey, I know this is hard,

but she was willing to destroy

the last survivable land on earth

just to win a war,

not to mention kill the people we love.

Well, we're almost there.

Indra's about to take over for Octavia.

Once Wonkru surrenders,

I'll come and get you out.

We'll head back to Shallow Valley

together.

Together.

- She's getting worse.
- I know.

JACKSON: If you're right and there's something

in her blood, dialysis should filter it out.

[BEEP BEEP BEEP]

[DOOR CLOSES]

INDRA: How is she?

JACKSON: Her systems are shutting down.

NIYLAH: You were there.

Tell us everything that happened.

Did she take anything, drink anything?

BELLAMY: It's like I told Miller.

She was eating one of your rations. Why?

Because she might have been poisoned.

- That's why.
- Niylah, that's enough.

She's his sister.

BELLAMY: We were sharing it the Wonkru way.

I ate it, too, and I'm fine.

Have you considered that the worm toxin

might still be in her blood?

It's possible, making this

a secondary reaction to the substance

she was exposed to, but a week ago...

MILLER: English, Jackson.

Dialysis won't work. Nothing will.

We need to prepare for succession.

INDRA: I'll inform Wonkru.

If there's any change in her condition,

I want to be the first to know.

Gather the first battalion and the delegates.

NIYLAH: I'll be right behind you.

[DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES]

[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS]

[BUZZER]

[CONVERSATIONS STOP]

The whispers are true.

Our beloved Blodreina has fallen ill.

These may be her final hours. Listen to me.

I trained Octavia as my second,

and I love her as I love my own child.

I advised her, and led her army with pride.

It was her desire that if she should ever fall,

I step forward to lead you.

Blodreina wanted what we all want...

To live a better life in Shallow Valley,

and we will, but not through war,

not when there's a better way.

For the last years, we have lost hundreds of our people.

We can't afford to lose any more.

I will negotiate for Wonkru to enter the valley peacefully

so that no more shall suffer.

MILLER: You're not in command here...

Not even over the first battalion.

Blodreina gave that honor to me.

BRELL: So you expect us to follow you? He's Skaikru.

MILLER: There is no Skaikru. You know that.

BRELL: In the absence of a Commander,

the clan delegates should reassemble

and choose the next leader.

MAN: Blasphemy. Miller's right.

There are no more clans, only Wonkru

and enemies of Wonkru.

That's funny coming from someone

who only escaped death in this arena because

our real enemies fell from the sky.

[PEOPLE SHOUTING]

[TWO GUNSHOTS]

[SHELLS CLATTER]

Now, I'm not asking you to follow me.

I'm asking you to follow Octavia.

Yesterday she ordered us to march on the valley,

so we march for Blodreina!

CROWD: Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina

Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

Indra...

I can't stop this war, Bellamy,

but there's someone who can.

CROWD: Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

INDRA: We need a real Commander.

CROWD: Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

CLARKE: Absolutely not.

Clarke, you know what a Commander means

to the Grounders.

years ago, you tried to force the Flame on Luna.

You were willing to put it in your own head

to prevent a war over this bunker.

How is this any different?

Madi's a child. That's how.

I don't care how many of these people

still believe in the Flame.

They believe in Blodreina more.

Madi will be protected. Gaia and I...

What happens when Octavia wakes up?

If she wakes up, we will be in the valley,

and she will see what peace is like

with her own eyes, and she will understand.

- I know it.
- The answer's no.

Now unchain me so we can get the hell out of here

before we all get executed for treason.

Clarke...

Echo, Raven, Murphy, and Emori

are my family.

I'm sorry. This is happening.

Don't do this, Bellamy.

- Bellamy...
- Guard.

You said that you'd protect her.

You said you'd keep her safe.

Bellamy!

No! Bellamy! Wait!

Bellamy! No! No!

MAN: You two check the western perimeter.

You with me and Kane.

[MCCREARY COUGHING]

[COUGHING CONTINUES]

Oh, you look horrible.

Better get on that treatment.

She didn't tell you.

Oh, of course not. Why would she?

She wants you dead.

- Explain.
- You see? I'm on your side.

Look. All I know is, Abby found a cure,

rigged up some kind of machine

to melt the crap in your lungs.

My guess... Diyoza's choosing who lives and dies.

You seem to be on the wrong list.

If what you're saying is true,

you should get your friends and go

as agreed before the bloodshed starts.

If you're lying...

it'll be your blood that's shed.

EMORI: God, your poker face sucks.

MURPHY: Listen to me.

Diyoza didn't tell McCreary about the cure.

I just did. Bad things are about to happen here.

ECHO: Nice work, Murphy.

I'll tell Diyoza so her side is ready.

As soon as the fighting starts,

go to work on the collars.

The pilot's, too.

Can I talk to you?

Just once, I wish we could have

a casual conversation.

This isn't it.

We're escaping,

and I want you to come with us.

My friend Emori knows how to take off the collars,

- and as soon as she can...
- No.

Shaw, you're gonna say that you're still loyal

to Diyoza after what she did to you?

It's not that, Raven.
I'm their only pilot.

They'll never stop looking for me.

That means you'll never be safe.

I don't know why I care about that.

Maybe it's your easygoing charm.

Uh, let me put it to you like this, Shaw.

Either you come with us or we'll kill you.

How's that for easygoing?

We'll have to work on it...

Ha ha!

But OK.

I'm in.

[CHANTING IN TRIGEDASLENG]

[POUNDING ON DOOR]

INDRA: I need to speak with my daughter.

[DOOR CLOSES]

I didn't mean to interrupt your prayers.

As it turns out, I'm here to answer them.

What are you up to, Mother,

that speech in the arena?

Suddenly, you're a peacemaker?

Real warriors hate war, Gaia.

And yet all you wanted me to do

was follow in your footsteps.

Get to the point. Wonkru is set to march.

You're about to get your wish.

So are you.

The child with Clarke is a real Natblida.

You knew.

I said, get to the point.

Give Madi the flame. Make her Commander.

She alone can unify Wonkru and stop this war.

You don't come to me with faith.

- This is desperation...
- Gaia...

Not to mention treason,

for which we both be thrown into the pit.

Not if it works. You question my motives.

It's true.

My faith is not as pure as yours,

but you are as responsible for what Octavia became

as I am.

Blodreina was a leader we needed then.

We need a true Commander now.

Will you do it or not?

The decision isn't mine to make.

The child must choose for herself.

[DOOR OPENS]

INDRA: I'll check on Octavia.

[DOOR LOCK CLICKS]

Madi, do you know why they brought you here?

BELLAMY: Hey, Madi, it's OK.

It's OK. No one's gonna hurt you.

GAIA: I told you,

I would never force this on you, and I won't,

but there are things happening now

that they believe only the wisdom

of the Commanders can save us from,

and as much as I wish it wasn't so,

I believe it, too.

You're talking about the war.

But you've been teaching us to fight.

BELLAMY: Some fights aren't worth fighting, Madi,

not when there's another way.

Clarke made a deal with Diyoza for peace,

and Octavia's too sick to accept it now,

but Wonkru won't follow anyone else.

MADI: Wait. Clarke knows about this?

Yeah. She doesn't approve.

No. She wouldn't.

Bellamy, if I do this,

she'll never forgive you.

- Madi...
- Just wait.

What happens to Clarke if I don't do this?

BELLAMY: Madi, I hate to put this on you.

If there was anything else I could do, I would,

but this is how we stop the war.

This is how we save that valley,

your home, and my friends.

This is how we save Clarke.

You're right on time.

I was just about to call for you.

- Why? What's wrong?
- Nothing, the opposite.

Dialysis is working. Her pulse is stabilizing.

She's waking up.

Hey, Octavia, can you hear me? Octavia.

Mm...

Hey, Octavia, hey, Indra is here, too.

Hmm?

You had us all so worried.

- Indra?
- I'm right here.

Indra, my brother poisoned me.

I'll take care of her.

You need to arrest Bellamy.

I'm afraid I can't do that.

[THUD]

No one is leaving this room.

DIYOZA: What's wrong?

ECHO: McCreary knows about the cure.

Code blue, boys and girls. You know what to do.

Lock it up. Everybody, weapons hot.

MAN: Move it. Come on. Let's go.

EMORI: Just follow my lead.

First, the panel, gently like this.

RAVEN: Sorry in advance if I...

[ZAP]

Code blue?

McCreary will go for the doctor,

so we'll get there first.

Geotag all the defectors to the church for now.

You got minutes to get there.

If this goes sideways, we'll bring you all to the ship.

ECHO: What about the defectors who went

with Kane to map the settlement?

Kane knows what code blue means.

After we roll up Abby, we go for Shaw.

Copy that.

[PEOPLE SHOUTING]

That's a lot of firepower for a doctor's visit.

Is something wrong?

Come on, McCreary.

We didn't come all the way back to earth

just to kill each other.

We came to live...

And now we can...

DIYOZA: Because our new doctor has succeeded

in finding us a cure.

We didn't want to tell you until we were...

What's Diyoza saying?

She's telling them about the cure,

defusing the bomb with the truth.

Got to say, she's good.

Yeah? We'll see about that.

[DIYOZA CONTINUES INDISTINCTLY]

MCCREARY: She's lying.

She was never gonna treat any of us,

only her people.

Go on. Tell them.

Tell them that you were planning

to let us die so that you

could make more room for your savages.

Now you're just being paranoid.

Am I?

What is your friend Kane working on

in the south woods?

A settlement for all of us,

a place where we can rebuild,

start over.

Once all of you are cured, you'll each get

a plot of land to call your own.

How does that sound?

[PEOPLE MURMUR]

Must I always do everything myself?

Oh!

- [CLICK]
- Take it easy.

No!

[ALL SHOUTING]

No! No! Knock it off!

[ALL SHOUTING]

This is my masterpiece.

[ALL SHOUTING]

Let's go, people. I did my part.

Just one more wire. Got it.

All right. You all know where the meeting point is.

If anyone gets split up, go there.

We'll come find you and bring you to the cave.

[SHOUTING CONTINUES]

KANE: Good. You're all here.

We need to get Abby and Diyoza

and get to the transport ship.

The other defectors are there already.

ECHO: Abby will be fine.
They won't hurt their doctor.

Whatever happens to Diyoza is not our concern.

- What about the other defectors?
- There's no time. Move out.

Is peace your concern?

Bellamy and Clarke
negotiated a surrender.

I've been working on a settlement

for everyone in the south woods.

Without Diyoza, that all goes away.

Whoops.

- I'll go with you.
- No way.

Octavia would never surrender.

We leave as planned.

Raven, take him and go right now,

or I slit his throat.

Stop talking and do it already.

RAVEN: Shaw, let's go. Let's go.

[DISTANT GUNSHOT]

[SHOUTING CONTINUES]

I'm going with Kane.

EMORI: John, not again.

It's Abby. I have to.

[EXHALES]

[DOOR CLOSES]

[ALL SHOUTING]

You two, with me.

MAN: Let's go. Come on.

[GUNSHOTS]

- Abby.
- Here. What's happening?

- Where's the machine?
- It's already stowed.

Good. We need to get you to the ship.

I'm gonna take her out back.

[CLICK]

Damn it.

It's OK. If I die, the cure dies with me.

MCCREARY: You're right.

We're not gonna kill you, but you'll wish we did.

Take her.

Run, Abby.

[CLICK]

[WHEEZING]

[PANTING]

You kill me,

you will kill your unborn child.

[PANTING]

It's a girl, by the way.

[PANTING]

[GUNSHOTS]

MURPHY: McCreary's people are in control.

- We have to go now.
- Where's Abby?

They took her, but she'll be OK.

There's more coming.

[GRUNTING]

Bring back the doctor...

now.

Tell me why.

Diyoza agreed to share the valley

if we surrender.

Surrender.

So you're not just a traitor.

You're a coward.

I'm ashamed of you.

And I'm afraid of you,

of what you've become.

I blame myself for that.

I let you go too far.

The dark year broke us all.

Do not talk to me about the dark year.

[COUGHING]

We survived that.

We can survive this, too.

We survived that because of me.

You stood there and watched.

Yes. I shouldn't have let you

shoulder that burden alone.

I won't make the same mistake now.

[DISTANT HORN BLOWING]

The Ascension call.

Wonkru wouldn't follow you,

so you're using Madi?

- Yes.
- She's a child.

She's the same age Lexa was when she ascended.

Soon, Wonkru will accept their new leader

and surrender.

Our people will reach that valley

without sacrificing any more lives...

And you will see the wisdom in it.

[HORN CONTINUES]

[BUZZER]

NIYLAH: How could you do this?

You swore to me Madi would never ascend.

Thank God. We have to stop it. Please.

You're not behind this.

No. It's Indra and Bellamy.

They... they poisoned Octavia,

and now they want to replace her.

Niylah, wait.

Guard, I'm done here.

Niylah, please.

I know that you're loyal to Octavia,

but we both want the same thing...

To stop the Ascension.

[KEYS JINGLING]

He's one of Indra's.

Oh. Thank you.

[PANTING]

[CHAINS CLATTER]

Don't make me regret this.

[CLICK]

Where are they?

[HORN CONTINUES]

NIYLAH: She's in there,

but the faithful are already gathering.

We have to get to them before the put the Flame

in her head.

No. There's too many of them.

Everyone here wants this to happen.

Tell me the truth, Niylah.

Will Wonkru follow a real Commander?

They might.

As long as Octavia holds power,

Madi won't be safe,

and I'm afraid our true
believers have all the guns.

Clarke.

[HORN CONTINUES]

GAIA: Don't be afraid.

Clarke, what are you doing here? Get out.

She's here to kill me.

I can't let anything happen to Madi.

Ascende superius.

OCTAVIA: I am surprised.

Clarke I knew would've thought this through.

You kill me, my people kill you.

Madi still ascends. They come after her.

It's lose-lose...

[MOANS]

Or we both can win.

INDRA: What is this nonsense?

What are you talking about?

The only person who wants Madi to be Commander

less than me is you.

BELLAMY: Clarke woke up right away.

Why... why isn't she waking up?

Patience.

The Flame affects every Commander differently.

- Help me.
- Yes.

You said you'd never done this before.

I haven't, but I've been

preparing for it my whole life.

This collar will protect the Flame.

MILLER: Back away from the child right now.

I need to get it out.

Clarke, no.

The Flame is bonding with her mind.

If you take it out now before it's complete

she may never wake up.

OCTAVIA: Quiet, traitor. Do it, Clarke.

GAIA: If you kill this child, you make her a martyr.

You weaken yourself even more.

I can't.

Take them to the Rover. Go.

- No.
- O...

OCTAVIA: Arrest the traitors.

[HANDCUFFS CLICK]

MCCREARY: Hear me.

We're not finished here.

We're not even close.

There are traitors in these woods,

our pilot amongst them.

We still have the doctor.

That means we have the cure.

Once healed, we will find Shaw,

and we will kill the rest,

and then we'll do what Diyoza should have done

from day one...

exterminate the savages that would take our land.

Our land! Our land!

Yeah!

[CROWD CHEERING]

Robert, why aren't you smiling?

Worried about that thing in your chest?

Nope. Already cured.

Oh, not that thing.

[CROWD CHEERING]

The doctor's in.

CROWD: Yeah!

There it is.

Clarke.

Hi. You're OK. I'm here.

[CLICK]

CLARKE: No. No. Please.

We had a deal.

These are my orders.

Gon Blodreina.

MADI: Put the gun down, Joroum.

Yu laik Joroum kom Sangedakru,

nomfa kom Lizbeth kom Sangedakru.

You served with honor in the royal guard

of Lexa kom Trikru.

You believed in her.

Now believe in me.

Heda.

[GUNSHOT]

Why did you do that?

You know why.

Clarke, if we run, Octavia wins.

Gaia, Indra, and Bellamy will die.

They made their choice.

[CROWD SHOUTING]

[SHOUTING STOPS]

The Nightblood child did not recite the lineage

and is, therefore, not the true Commander.

Instead, she ran,

abandoning all of us like a coward.

She is not Wonkru.

She is an enemy of Wonkru, and like all of our enemies...

she will be dealt with.

But first...

first, we have a war to win.

[CROWD CHEERING]

CROWD: Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!

Gon Blodreina! Gon Blodreina!
