|“||Niylah: We're all your people now.||”|
|— We Will Rise|
Clarke and Niylah is the relationship between Clarke Griffin and Niylah. They seemed to have met off-screen and Clarke has been staying with Niylah after she left her people back at Arkadia. During the course of Season 3 and 4, the pair sleep together several times. In Season 5, after not seeing each other for six years, they have both moved on but still care for each other.
Clarke meets Niylah in the six months between seasons 2 and 3. Clarke is living alone and frequently trades at Niylah's shop because of its isolation. In "Wanheda (Part 1)", Niylah flirts with Clarke who accepts her advances and they sleep together, however Clarke leaves during the night. After "Wanheda (Part 2)", Niylah is not mentioned until "Nevermore" when Clarke needs a place to hide from A.L.I.E.
In season 4, Clarke and Niylah have regular contact. Niylah assisted the Sky People in preserving meat. In "The Tinder Box", Clarke convinces Niylah to stay in Arkadia. After Clarke leaves for Becca's Island, the pair do not see each other again until inside the Second Dawn Bunker. The guilt and stress of being a leader weighs heavily on Clarke and Niylah attempts to help her with emotional support. Clarke leaves the bunker shortly and they do not see each other for six years.
In Season 5, they reunite in "Exit Wounds". While Clarke had been avoiding her, the two remain friendly and show they care for the other. Both women have moved on and both have new families. Their loyalties have changed and Niylah believes in Wonkru and Octavia. Niylah figures out that Madi is a born Nightblood and intends to tell Octavia but gives Clarke one day to do it herself.
Throughout the Series Edit
Notes and Trivia Edit
Clarke and Niylah have one of the most complex romantic relationships on The 100. While they started off as lovers, things (primarily the plot) broke them apart. In the next season Clarke is seen to first be excited to reunite with Niylah but with the Second Nuclear Apocalypse looming, they again are torn apart. After six years, they meet essentially as strangers again and have little interest in getting into a relationship again. Niylah even becomes an "antagonist" in Clarke's plotline in Season Five and shows that apparently they have lost any romantic feelings for one another.
