Clarke and Octavia is the relationship between Clarke Griffin and Octavia Blake. They are portrayed by starring cast members Eliza Taylor and Marie Avgeropoulos and debut in the first episode of Season One.
Clarke and Octavia become good friends during Season One, working and overcoming many obstacles together. However, their friendship ends in Season 2 when Octavia learns that Clarke knew of the missile on TonDC, and had left Octavia for dead. In Season 3 and 4, while they had to work together, Octavia wasn't fully trusting of Clarke. In Season Five, Clarke and Octavia reunite after six years but their relationship is strained due to Octavia's threat to Clarke's adoptive daughter Madi. Despite this, Octavia is visibly distraught when Clarke apparently dies in Matryoshka and overjoyed by her survival.
Clarke and Octavia meet in Season One when they are in the group of Delinquents sent to Earth by The Council. In the Pilot, Octavia joins Clarke on her initial expedition to Mount Weather and Clarke helps Octavia after she is injured by a water snake. After Jasper is rescued in Earth Skills, Octavia helps Clarke care for his injuries in Earth Kills. In His Sister's Keeper, Clarke volunteers to help Bellamy search for Octavia. In Contents Under Pressure, Octavia at first assists Clarke with Finn's stab wound but their relationship becomes strained when Lincoln is brought into the dropship and Clarke condones his torture under Octavia's protests. Clarke discovers in Unity Day that it was Octavia with Lincoln's help who arranged the meeting with Anya at the bridge. When the Delinquents fall sick in I Am Become Death, Clarke sends Octavia off to Lincoln to find a cure. When Clarke and Finn are captured by Anya, Lincoln helps them escape in We Are Grounders (Part 1) because of his relationship with Octavia and asks Clarke to get Octavia to safety.
After the battle at the Camp, Octavia and Clarke are reunited again in Season Two when Octavia arrives at Camp Jaha with Bellamy in Human Trials. Octavia leads Clarke and Bellamy to Tondc where they discover Finn has massacred most of the village. In Long Into an Abyss, Clarke helps Octavia with Lincoln when they discover he has been turned into a Reaper. Octavia discovers Clarke knew ahead of time about the missile landing on Tondc in Bodyguard of Lies and dissolves their friendship. They get in an argument again when Clarke arrives at the Mount Weather intake door in Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2). After the take-down of Mount Weather, Clarke leaves Octavia behind along with the rest of the Delinquents at Camp Jaha.
In Season Five, Clarke and Octavia reunite, six years after Praimfaya. But when Octavia sends one of her guards to kill Clarke and Madi, this causes Clarke to realize that Octavia has sent her guards to kill her adoptive daughter, making Octavia a threat to Madi.
In Season Six, due to Octavia's ongoing violent and aggressive actions, Clarke refuses to trust her at all and essentially ends their association for good when Bellamy banishes Octavia. However, a remorseful Octavia is shown to still care for her former friend and sets out to save her and the others. Clarke's apparent death in Matryoshka leaves Octavia visibly distraught and then overjoyed when she's finally revived. Meanwhile, Clarke wants Bellamy to forgive his sister.
