Guest Starring



Sheidheda (in Trigedasleng): "We meet again... Madi kom Louwoda Kliron Kru."
Madi Griffin: "Russell? I--I didn't know you spoke..."
Sheidheda (in Trigedasleng): "Russell's dead. I killed him in the Mindspace. Good thing I didn't kill you in yours."
Madi Griffin: "Sheidheda."
Sheidheda: "In the flesh... again. You betrayed me, Madi. I offered you the world, and you chose weakness, love. I'd like to see you bleed. Unfortunately for me, Indra's reign has changed things. Yeah. Yes. Follow her despite the redness of her blood. Hmm? This free reign won't do at all. I'm in a quandary, Madi. As a fellow former Commander, you have a claim to the throne and while killing you solves that problem, it makes my Indra problem worse. She may be an imposter, but she does have followers, Trikru fools mostly, but Grounders just the same, my people just the same. I'll give them a chance to kneel just like I'm giving it to you. Kneel for me right now, Madi. And I'll let you live. Refuse to kneel... and I'll slice open the chests of every person you love and feed their hearts to your dog. Hmm. (Madi kneels) Good girl. I'm so glad we've come to this understanding."
Hope Diyoza: "What?"
Echo: "What? You didn't really believe I believe this garbage. We're gonna kill them, all of them."
Hope Diyoza: "You have a plan."
Echo: "Took some convincing to get our friend Levitt to help me, but, yes, I have a plan."
Hope Diyoza: "What can I do?"
Echo: "There's been a complication. Our people are here -- Clarke, Raven, Miller, Niylah, Jordan. The watches are synched. Put on the guard's uniform and take this. I'll give you exactly one hour to get everyone we care about off this planet. One hour only."
Hope Diyoza: "What if I can't?"
Echo: "Can't isn't an option. You tell them if they're still here, then they die too. They'll want to know why I'm doing this, that's why I haven't told you. One hour."
Hope Diyoza: "Ok."
Sheidheda (in Trigedasleng): "Friends of the Twelve Clans..."
Indra: "He's broadcasting from the palace."
John Murphy: "Madi, come with us."
Sheidheda (in Trigedasleng): "I have something important to tell you. You have been lied to. The one you have chosen to follow..."
Indra: "Let's move! We know where he is."
Sheidheda (in Trigedasleng): "Indra kom Trikru... told you the time of the Commanders is over..."
Indra: "I gave you an order!"
Sheidheda (in Trigedasleng): "She lied to you. All this time, she knew that a true Commander was among us."
Indra: "Keep Madi safe."
Sheidheda (in Trigedasleng): "She kept me in chains. But no more."
John Murphy: "Go get the bastard."
Niylah (in Trigedasleng): "This is awkward."
Bill Cadogan: "She must have been important, my Callie, for her language to survive all this time."
Niylah: "Kalliope Pramfleimkepa. They say she was brave, strong. Legend has it when she died, even her enemies wept."
Bill Cadogan: "What does Pram... You know what? It doesn't matter."
Gabriel Santiago: "Funny. I remember you differently. How are you still alive?"
Bill Cadogan: "Cryogenics. Plus a well-balanced diet. Ah. Yes. Gabriel, right? Anders said you were like me -- immortal, from Earth, worshipped by his people."
Gabriel Santiago: "Uh, no. No. Not like you. I lost my way for a time, but I never actually believed I was a god."
Bill Cadogan: "We're all gods, doctor, and we're all on a journey to Transcendence even if we took different paths."
Gabriel Santiago: "Now that sounds like you."
Bill Cadogan: "I must say... it is nice to talk to someone from that time, and, yes, I was different then, but a man learns a lot as the centuries tick past, wouldn't you agree, doctor?"
Gabriel Santiago: "Hmm. So what have you learned?"
Bill Cadogan: "Ah. We found these logs when we arrived, remnants from the civilization that lived here before -- the Bardoans. It took centuries. We finally translated the characters. It's a story not unlike our own, but this is the part I find most intriguing."
Jordan Green (reading): "The Orb becomes like a star, challenging all we have done and all that we are."
Bill Cadogan: "Beautiful, don't you think?"
Jordan Green (reading): "Only then will the Last War begin. Make it past and cease to be fallible. Transcend into greatness. Evolve into more."
Niylah: "I like the rhyming part better."
Gabriel Santiago: "The Bardoans didn't record the code?"
Bill Cadogan: "Oh, I wish it were that easy."
Niylah: "That's why you need Clarke."
Bill Cadogan: "Yes. The AI knows the code. We enter it, and our Last War begins."
Jordan Green: "Ridiculous. We evolve to a higher level through our lowest behavior? The answer to all this violence isn't just more violence."
Bill Cadogan: "The end of violence, the Last War."
Niylah: "Every war seems like the last until the next."
Bill Cadogan: "You don't believe me? Have at it. It's all there."
Charmaine Diyoza: "Wait! She's not one of them."
Hope Diyoza: "Clarke. Raven. Miller. You described them well."
Charmaine Diyoza: "This is Hope, my daughter. Time dilation's a bitch. How'd you get out?"
Hope Diyoza: "Doesn't matter. Right now, we need to get ourselves to the Stone room and get ourselves out of Bardo. We can get acquainted later. Let's go!"
Jordan Green: "Oh, my God."
Niylah: "What?"
Jordan Green: "Maybe it's structured like Korean."
Niylah: "What?"
Jordan Green: "My dad's father was Korean. He taught me the language, what he knew of it, anyway. I didn't want to learn it at first. It looked like there would be thousands of characters to study."
Niylah: "But there weren't?"
Jordan Green: "No. That's not how Korean works. It uses an alphabet, same as English, just with the letters stacked into blocks of syllables, blocks that are easy to mistake as characters."
Niylah: "You think Cadogan didn't decode the text right?"
Jordan Green: "I think it's possible. Look. What if each of these strokes is just a letter?"
Niylah: "They could have the whole language completely wrong."
Jordan Green: "Well, maybe not the whole thing but multiple word phrases like Last War."
Niylah: "Now it just sounds like you're trying to find proof to support what you believe."
Jordan Green: "How is that any different than what they're doing? We all see what we want to see. If you're looking for the wrong answer, it's easy to miss the right one. Come on. Look at what's written about unlocking the Stone. There's no mention about violence or pain, just... preparation, judgment."
Niylah: "Like a test."
Jordan Green: "Exactly. Like a test. It would make sense."
Gabriel Santiago: "What did I miss?"
Jordan Green: "Not much, just... that I'm a genius."
Niylah: "Jordan has a theory."
Jordan Green: "That they got it wrong. The Last War isn't a war at all. If I'm right..."
Niylah: "And that's a big if."
Jordan Green: "Then it's a test. Now I'm just guessing here, but probably to be taken by whoever enters the code."
Gabriel Santiago: "One individual representing a whole species."
Niylah: "No pressure there."
Jordan Green: "You gotta admit it makes more sense than a war. Should we tell them?"
Gabriel Santiago: "No. No, no, no. No way. If there is a test to decide the fate of the human race, Bill Cadogan should not be the one to take it. Come. Show me what you -- what you mean."
Emori: "So, what now?"
John Murphy: "That's tomorrow's problem. Today we survive, all of us."
Emori: "Don't look now, John, but I think you just might be someone worth believing in."
Charmaine Diyoza: "Don't waste this little one. Be better than me."

Notes and Trivia

  • The title refers to Bill Cadogan's question to Gabriel Santiago about whether or not its worth a little sacrifice to get to see what comes next.
  • Several of the people from the massacre, including Jeremiah, are revealed to be still alive, just badly injured.
  • For Clarke's group, this episode begins immediately after the events of "Anaconda."
  • For the group on Bardo, this episode takes place over the course of roughly an hour.
  • It's revealed that the Disciples believe that Clarke has the Flame because they saw Octavia's memory of Clarke using it to destroy A.L.I.E. in "Perverse Instantiation (Part 2)." Octavia, who knew the truth, never told the Disciples as she knew it would be good leverage if Clarke ever did show up.
  • Octavia, Hope, Diyoza, Gabriel and Echo never told the Disciples the truth about the Flame and have only been playing along and pretending to be Disciples.
  • Bill Cadogan shows Gabriel Santiago, Niylah and Jordan Green logs revealing that the Bardoans found the same code Becca Franko found in "Anaconda" leading to what they call the last war and transcendence. This is the source of the Disciples beliefs and they need the Flame to find the code as the Bardoans did not record it.
  • Monty is revealed to have taught Jordan the Korean language which Monty learned from his own father who was Korean.
  • After examining the Bardoan logs, Jordan comes to the conclusion that they were mistranslated by the Disciples. Instead of a last war to determine the fate of the human race, Jordan believes it to be a test of some sort, one individual who enters the final code representing their species.
  • Sheidheda's real name is revealed to be Malachi and he takes control of Wonkru. In turn, Murphy assumes leadership of the remaining Sanctumites to survive and fight back against the Dark Commander's reign.
  • As in his first body, Sheidheda loses an eye, this time to an attack from Madi in an attempt to save Indra.
  • This is ninth episode to that Bellamy Blake did not appear.
  • This episode marks the first and only on-screen interaction between Nathan Miller and Charmaine Diyoza.
  • This was the least-watched episode of the series, with only 470 thousand viewers in the United States tuning in live.
