The relationship between Clarke Griffin and Bellamy Blake starts out antagonistic towards each other. In the beginning, Bellamy shows a great amount of animosity towards Clarke and considers her to be one of the "privileged" in the hierarchy the Ark created. Meanwhile, Clarke often disagrees with the decisions Bellamy makes. However, as season one goes on, their relationship develops into a partnership. Their partnership grows into a friendship filled with mutual respect and trust. They are both shown to care if the other lives or dies.

In "Ye Who Enter Here", Bellamy arrives at Polis and finds Clarke there. He begs her to come back to Arkadia with him but she refuses so he leaves without her. In "Hakeldama", Clarke sneaks into Arkadia to confront Bellamy about his massacre of a Grounder army. He attempts to take her to Pike but she shock-lashes him and escapes.

They were working together for most of Season Four, but they separated in "We Will Rise" and reunited at the end of "DNR". In the season finale, "Praimfaya", Clarke told Bellamy to use his head and that he inspires people with his big heart. At the end, Bellamy had to decide to leave Clarke behind since she did not make it back to Becca's lab on time. Bellamy, along with six others, used Becca's rocket to go back to the Ark while Clarke remained on the ground. Bellamy assumed Clarke died in the death wave. In an epilogue scene, taking place six years later, it is revealed that Clarke has survived and has been trying to contact Bellamy using radio. Bellamy is unable to receive these messages, due to the atmospheric radiation that is blocking the radio signals, and he still believes Clarke to be dead. Clarke has been waiting for 2,199 days for Bellamy to respond and is wondering why the group has not come back to Earth.
In Season Five, Clarke and Bellamy reunite after the six years apart. In "Sleeping Giants", Bellamy learns that Clarke is alive. Madi and Bellamy arrive to Shallow Valley just when Diyoza is dragging Clarke outside to torture her. Bellamy asks Diyoza to spare Clarke's life or else all the 283 prisoners in the ship would die. To prove that he's not bluffing, he shows Diyoza a mug that he carried from the ship. Bellamy makes it clear that he would trade all those lives for just one - Clarke Griffin. That's how much she means to him. After the events of "Sic Semper Tyrannis", when Bellamy's plot had the Flame inserted into Madi and ended up with Clarke leaving Bellamy to die in Polis, their relationship is strained. In "Damocles (Part 2)", Clarke and Bellamy's friendship is restored after Madi convinces Bellamy to forgive Clarke by telling him about the radio calls.

He follows Roan and Clarke to the abandoned subway station.
Once inside, he spots a tied up Clarke and rushes to her. When he sees her, his face breaks into a smile and he tenderly moves a strand of hair away from her face, as if to ensure that she is real. Clarke, her eyes wide, says his name but it is muffled by the gag. Bellamy reassures her that he will get her out as he gently removes the gag.

Once in Arkadia, Octavia manages to bring Bellamy in a room where Clarke is waiting. Octavia leaves, slamming the door behind him. Bellamy seems surprised to see Clarke, who says they need to talk. Bellamy, sarcastically, calls her "the mighty Wanheda" and points out how she turned her back on her own people but now wants to talk. Clarke ignores the comment and proceeds by telling him that the Ice Nation paid a price for their attack and that what he did with Pike could create yet another war but this time, the Sky People against Lexa and the 12 clans. Bellamy replies smugly that he would like to see Lexa try. Clarke asks him if he wants to go to war and Bellamy replies that they have been at war since they landed and Pike understands that. Clarke tells him that Pike is the problem and that all of this isn't who Bellamy is. Bellamy says that she's wrong, that this is who he has always been but he has let her, Kane and Octavia convince him that they could trust the Grounders but he now knows who they truly are and he won't let anyone else die for that mistake. Hopelessly, Clarke tells Bellamy that she needs him, that she needs "the guy who wouldn't let [her] pull that lever in Mt. Weather by [herself]". Bellamy snaps at her that she left him, that she left everyone. He blames her for making a deal with Lexa, who abandoned them at Mount Weather, which forced them to change plans and to irradiate the entire level, killing most of the Mountain Men. He adds that she is not in charge anymore, which is a good thing because people only died when she was in charge. Clarke is left speechless by his outburst and both begin to tear up. Sitting down, Clarke apologizes to Bellamy for leaving but adds that she knew she could because they still had him. Clarke drops her head, shamefully. Bellamy crosses the room and kneels down in front of her, taking her hands. They look into each other's eyes and Clarke smiles at him. She tells him that she knows they can fix this but Bellamy replies that he's sorry too. He then handcuffs her to the table. Clarke becomes dumbstruck, struggles against the cuffs. Bellamy turns his back and leaves the room.
Later, Bellamy drags a cuffed Clarke in the halls with another guard, bringing her to Pike. Clarke begs him to not to this and Bellamy tells her that he's doing it for her own good. Octavia comes around the corner and knocks out the guard. She tells Bellamy to let Clarke go and Bellamy replies that he can't do that. They hear people coming their way and Bellamy asks Octavia to go. Clarke uses that moment of distraction to grab the guard's shock stick and shocks Bellamy with it.

But he tells her that he's got her for that, before their conversation can get any further, they're interrupted. Outside the bunker, Raven instructs Clarke and Bellamy to access the satellite dish to transmit the signal to power the Ark. Bellamy and Clarke are forced to separate and Clarke goes to the tower alone. Upon reaching the tower, she discovers the dish is not aligned with the Ark, so she must access it manually - from the top. She attempbts to radio Raven and Bellamy, telling them not to wait for her. She accepts that she may die today, then begins climbing the tower towards the dish. While ascending the tower, she notices the rocket launch in the distance, but still continues to climb. Bellamy, alone in the lab, is waiting for Clarke to come back. But the countdown hits zero and he's forced to make the decision to leave her behind. Clarke's speech to him made him make the "head" decision which is saving their friends instead of waiting for her or going after her. Bellamy is hoping till the very last second Clarke appears, but she doesn't. When they get to space, the Ring still has no power, Bellamy believes Clarke will still succeed. After a while, with no much time and the Ring still without power, Bellamy is starting to doubt his decision of leaving Clarke, right when the Ring finally lights up. After they safely make it to the Ring, we see Bellamy hearbrokenly staring at the burning planet, determined to do everything to honour Clarke's memory. Six years and seven days later, Clarke is revealed to have survived, thanks to her Nightblood. Her skin is perfect, clear of burns. Sitting on the hood of a rover, she admires the beautiful weather, while staring into the wasteland that once had many green trees. She calls Bellamy on a radio, despite knowing if he is dead or alive. Bellamy thinks Clarke is dead for six years. She speaks into the radio, saying it has been 2,199 days since Praimfaya and has attempted to contact them ever since. Earth has been survivable for over a year, but she has not seen anybody she had known from the bunker since the death wave hit. She still has hope that she will reunite with the people she once knew.
In Sleeping Giants, Bellamy and the group land on the ground, they immediately come face to face with the prisoners. In a surprise twist, Madi appears from the bushes and kills two prisoners in an instant. Madi tells them that they need to hurry because Clarke is in trouble. They are shocked to hear that Clarke is alive.
Madi and Bellamy arrive to the Valley just when Diyoza is dragging Clarke outside to torture her.Bellamy asks Diyoza to spare Clarke's life or else all the 283 prisoners in the ship would die.

That's how much she means to him.

But that means their friends at the valley would die too.
Since Octavia wouldn't listen to Bellamy or Clarke, they go to Indra about it. Clarke, Bellamy and Indra confront Octavia about her plan and the fact that it would kill their friends. After realizing that Echo and Raven were successful in gaining control over the satellite, Clarke and Bellamy agree to hide the information from Octavia. If Octavia found out, she would go to the next phase of her plan: infecting a defector with the worms to kill everyone at the valley. Clarke and Bellamy agree to go with Monty, Harper, and Madi to rescue their friends at the valley before Octavia attacks the valley.
In How We Get to Peace Clarke and Bellamy decide to sabotage Wonkru's plan to attack the valley. Clarke and Bellamy enlist the help of Indra.

Madi doesn't want to take the flame because Clarke wouldn't want that. But Bellamy convinces her to take it, by lying to her that it would be the only way to save Clarke. After that, Bellamy goes to Clarke and tells her about the plan but Clarke refuses to accept it because Madi is just a child and they would be putting her in danger. So, Bellamy decides to keep Clarke chained until the ceremony is over.By the time they get to Madi's ascension ceremony, Clarke and Octavia find that Madi has already taken the flame and is unconscious waiting for the flame to take over, Clarke is disappointed with Bellamy's actions and slaps him in the face, Octavia orders her guards to arrest Bellamy, Gaia and Indra for treason. She then asks one of her guards to take Clarke and Madi to the rover. Clarke and Madi leave Polis to the valley and leave Bellamy to die in the bunker.

They get captured by McCreary's men but Clarke lies about Echo to save her life. Later the two share a conversation about Bellamy. Clarke points out she spared Echo's life because she noticed Bellamy loved her. Echo reveals to Clarke that Bellamy isn't dead. This realization strucks Clarke and she starts to slowly change her mind. It isn't until Lexa through Madi tells her, how leaving Clarke in Mount Weather was her biggest regret and she doesn't want her to make the same mistake she did that Clarke decides to let Madi go and tells Echo to save Bellamy.

He pins her against the wall and asks her who she is, Josephine knocks him out with a paralytic shot.
In Memento Mori, Bellamy is locked up in Josephine's room and mourns the loss of Clarke. He gets offered a deal for peace in exchange for not retaliating.

In Nevermind, Clarke is trapped in her Mindspace. She is confronted by Octavia as Blodreina about Bellamy because she can't bear to face him in her subconscious. Blodreina accuses her of not caring for him and claims he hasn't forgiven her and thinks of her a monster. Clarke gets really emotional and objects to these claims.

In What You Take With You, Bellamy drags Josephine through the forest, trying to find Gabriel. Josephine taunts him about how stupid his plan is. That it will only lead to all three of them dead and Russell killing the rest of his family back in Sanctum. She accuses him of caring about Clarke more than anybody else. Bellamy ignores all her statements, not letting her get under his skin. They get captured by the Children of Gabriel. After Clarke sending another Morse Code message, Bellamy asks Josephine if Clarke can hear them. She says that apparently, she can and tells him to say whatever he wants to say. After a beat, all he manages to say is "I won't let you die". This manages to reach even Josephine and she possibly gets scared for her life for the first time. Later she tries to taunt Bellamy about his relationship with Clarke. She brings up some of their worst moments and calls their relationship weird and exhausting to which Bellamy responds with "Tell me about it". The Children of Gabriel discover she is a nightblood and a prime and are about to kill her when Josephine gives Clarke control so she can knock them out.

After he takes out the minddrive and restarts her heart, Clarke is still not waking up. In the mindspace, Josephine hits Clarke with a hatchet and she starts dying once and for all. Gabriel tells them that he can't do anything because once the head stops telling the heart to beat, it's over. This hits Bellamy as he remembers him and Clarke are "The head and the heart". Realizing he can't live without her, he starts desperately performing CPR on her, crying and screaming he can't lose her and he needs her. Clarke hears Bellamy screaming for her to get up and fight, and picks up the hatchet and finally kills Josephine. Clarke wakes up and they share a very powerful emotional hug as they finally reunite.
In Ashes to Ashes, when Clarke wakes up, visibly shaken, Bellamy comforts her. The two share a brief conversation about how Bellamy saved her, but with not much time left, they have to figure out how to save the rest of their people. Clarke suggest a plan that she goes to Sanctum as Josephine but Bellamy is strictly against it, not wanting to put her in danger. They discuss other ways with Gabriel and Clarke encourages Bellamy to talk to his sister. By the end of the episode Clarke is forced to pretend to be Josephine as Murphy and Jade appear. Bellamy is visibly worried. Clarke ungags Bellamy and assures him she can do this and they are doing this for Monty to avoid bloodshed.
Clarke: "Do you think we care who's in charge? We need to get to Mount Weather not because the Chancellor said so, but because the longer we wait, the hungrier we'll get and the harder this'll be. How long do you think we'll last without those supplies? We're looking at a twenty-mile trek, okay? So if we want to get there before dark, we need to leave now."
Bellamy: "I got a better idea. You two go, find it for us. Let the privileged do the hard work for a change."
Clarke(To Bellamy): "I saw you in the woods with Atom. I know you're not a killer."
Bellamy(To Clarke): "This is on you, Princess. You should've kept your mouth shut."
Clarke: "No! We don't decide who lives and dies. Not down here."
Bellamy: "So help me God, if you say the people have a right to decide..."
Clarke: "No, I was wrong before, okay? You were right. Sometimes it's dangerous to tell people the truth. But if we're gonna survive down here, we can't just live by "whatever the hell we want". We need rules."
Clarke: "Bellamy, don't you see what this means? You're not a murderer. You always did what you had to do to protect your sister. That's who you are. You can do it again, by protecting three hundred of your people...Where's the radio?"
Bellamy: "And all I do is hurt people. I'm a monster."
Clarke: "Hey. You saved my life today. You may be a total ass half the time, but I need you. We all need you. None of us would've survived this place if it wasn't for you. You want forgiveness, fine, I'll give it to you. You're forgiven, okay, but you can't run, Bellamy. You have to come back with me. You have to face it."
Clarke(To Jaha about Bellamy): "Before you do [talk to Bellamy], I'd like to say something. When you send us down here, you sent us to die. But miraculously most of us are still alive. And a large part that is because of him. Because of Bellamy. He is one of us. And he deserves to be pardoned of his crimes just like the rest of us."
Clarke: "Please tell me that going to war is not what you want?"
Bellamy: "We've been at war since we landed. At least Pike understands that."
Clarke: "Pike is the problem. This isn't who you are?"
Bellamy: "You're wrong. This is who I've always been. And I let you, and Octavia and Kane convince me that we could trust these people when they've shown over and over again who they are. And I won't let anyone else die for that mistake."
Clarke: "Bellamy, I need you and we don't have much time."
Clarke: "Maybe, but you didn't want that to happen. You tried to stop it. Octavia will forgive you eventually. The question is, will you forgive yourself?"
Bellamy: "Forgiveness is hard for us. I was so angry at you for leaving. I don't want to feel that way anymore."
Clarke: "You know, you're not the only one trying to forgive yourself. Maybe we'll get that someday. But we need each other, Bellamy. What we're doing now, the only way we're gonna pull this off is together."
Clarke: "Octavia's not the only one who's changed, you now. You could've killed those prisoners in cryo, but you didn't. Diyoza would've killed me if not for you. Madi would be alone. You got that bunker open "
Bellamy: "Who knew it would turn out to be Pandora's Box."
Clarke: "I'm serious, Bellamy. The heart and the head"
Josephine Lightbourne: "Take you and Clarke for instance. Now that's a weird relationship, isn't it? First you want to kill her to save your own ass, even though it means the genocide of your own people on the Ark and then you become besties, bonding over the actual genocide at Mount Weather. Together. You lock her up, she locks you up, you leave her on Earth, she leaves you to die in the fighting pits. I mean, it's exhausting frankly."
In "The Other Side" script, Clarke aims a gun at Bellamy, threatening to kill him. However, in the script she couldn't shoot him because she didn't want to kill another person she loved. This possibly means that Clarke loves Bellamy, but it is never showed on screen.
In "Praimfaya," Clarke told Bellamy that people follow him because of his big heart, and that he should use his head. This made Bellamy decide to leave Clarke behind since she couldn't make it back to Becca's lab in time to get to space.
Bellamy saves Clarke multiple times. Three times in season 1: he saves Clarke from falling into hole and from getting killed by Dax and by Anya. In season 2, when they discover that someone put poison in Lexa's drink, Bellamy slaps the cup out of Clarke's hand. He saves her twice in season 4: shot one of Roan's men who captured her, later Bellamy stabbed Grounder ambusher before they could kill Clarke. Bellamy tries to save Clarke in "Wanheda (Part 2)" but failed. He save her once in season 5: Coming to ground to find Clarke who is captured by Eligius Prisoners, he went to Green Valley to spare Clarke’s life. He saves her once in season 6: Bellamy revived Clarke by using CPR.
In "How We Get to Peace", Bellamy indirectly acknowledges that he loves Clarke while talking to Octavia. The statement does not specify romantic love and could simply mean platonic love.
Bellamy is one of the first to notice that "Clarke" is not Clarke.
In Season Four, Clarke and Bellamy are the only main characters appears in every episode.
In "What You Take With You," Josephine Lightbourne, having access to Clarke's memories, lists the many things that makes their relationship so complicated and calls the complicated nature of their relationship exhausting. Bellamy agrees with her on this point.
- We will have to stay tuned to see where we'll see them next season, but it's pretty clear at the end of this episode that Bellamy is stunned by her choice," executive producer Jason Rothenberg tells E! News. "He was hoping that they'd finally be able to now come home and have some sort of normalcy. They've made it! They're back! 'Let's go have a drink,' he says before he realizes she's not coming in." -
- "It's clear to me that these two people have come to need each other and respect each other and love each other on some pretty deep level," Rothenberg says. "Obviously, it's not romantic, certainly for Clarke anyway, and it's never been vocalized that it is for Bellamy either. You could read as much as you want in their body language and their eyes, but that's something that is being put off again as a result of Clarke's walkabout." -"But you know what, the truth is that I'm not deliberately toying with [Bellarke]! It's just the story that we're telling now," he promises. "If it makes sense at some point, it will happen. If people really want it right now, the Bellamy/Clarke thing, I highly, highly recommend that they read the books. It's in the books! It's a very tense part of the books. If you want that right now, you can get it. At some point, the show will give it to you too, but for now, it's not there." 
Even though it may be difficult to wait for an inevitable, real Bellarke relationship, even the most hardcore Bellarke shipper must admit that if it happens too fast, it won't be as satisfying. -"Absolutely!" Rothenberg agrees. "Because then once people get it, they'll be like, 'Okay, next!' But it doesn't enter our minds as storytellers as, 'How are we going to deepen and play with the Bellamy/Clarke love story?' It's just not a part of the show right now. We played with the Lexa/Clarke storyline this season and that is still ongoing because both characters are still breathing. The journey is long, and eventually, we'll be able to tell that story in all its glory, but right now, there are other things in the way of that." 
Bellamy and Clarke's last scene. These are two characters that have become good allies and obviously, there's a huge fan base for them romantically too. How important was it to have that scene, and also the one with him helping her push that lever to kill all the Mountain Men? Jason Rothenberg: Important. Bellamy and Clarke are the leaders of the kids, certainly of The 100. They are two of our heroes. And they're a team. They compliment each other. They complete each other. I think they both realize now that they are indispensable to the other. Getting them back together to sort of finish the job was important, for sure. And Bellamy's gesture there to put his hand on top of hers and do it together – in some way take on the burden that he knew Clarke would be taking on in that moment – was certainly something that was important for him to do. I think Clarke appreciates it, but I don't think it lessens anything in Clarke's mind. I don't think he takes half the burden and suddenly it feels half as bad to her. But certainly, the bond, at some point in the future, that will serve to deepen their connection, for sure. Once they have time to process this.
Clarke killed all of Mount Weather, and obviously, this is going to affect her a lot going forward as she left to strike out on her own, even though Bellamy took on some of the responsibility. Why is she still blaming herself when Bellamy helped shoulder that responsibility? Bellamy's gesture at that moment was amazing and magnanimous. He doesn't want Clarke to take that on by herself. But at the end of the day, that doesn't really help absolve her of anything. Just because someone else did it with you, that doesn't make you feel any better about what you ultimately had to do. 
Bellamy's still pretty affected by that choice too, right? I suppose there's a world where Bellamy can't live with himself and what he did either and goes out and joins Clarke. That's not in the cards for these two right now, though. Clarke has reached the end of her journey and just wants to forget what she's had to do and be by herself, not reminded every second of these horrible things she's been forced to do this season in order to get her people back, from killing Finn [Thomas McDonnell] to shooting Dante to irradiating Mount Weather.
Clarke was the 100's leader and essentially became everyone's leader after everyone came down from the Ark. Can you say anything about what you're thinking as far as where does that leadership now fall? Does it go back to Abby? Does Bellamy take over, given what Clarke said to him at the end? I do think Bellamy is going to be recognized as the hero that he became this season. I think that Kane, in the very brief moment between the two of them, in the dorm, as they're freeing everybody - it's essentially an acknowledgement in so many words of the mistake he made in episode one of this year when he arrested him and they sort of disregarded the fact that these kids had been on the ground for this time and knew way more than they did. Bellamy had always wanted to be a member of the guard. Perhaps we'll see that ultimately coming to pass. Perhaps we'll see him getting some real responsibility. I don't want to talk too much about what my plans are for Season 3 but obviously, the dynamic within the camp… everything is going to change now.
What about [Clarke's] reunion with Bellamy? She doesn't have any hard feelings towards Bellamy, she's probably more guilty about the fact that she ran away from all of her people. Seeing any of her people is going to bring back the memory of what she was running away from, so there will be that. For Bellamy, he's angry that she left. He's angry that she left him alone to lead their people out of this period of war into this period of peace. There's some degree of resentment on his part, for sure, but when he finds out that she's in trouble, in the premiere, another gear kicks in. Clarke is special to him. He understands that Clarke is special in general, and finding out that she's in trouble activates his inner hero and he's immediately on the case. Probably he would do the same if any of his friends were in that situation, but certainly, because it's Clarke, has an added importance in his mind. When they come together, I don't think it plays out how people will expect.
