She also helps Raven send signal flares up to the Ark, hoping that the citizens of the Ark will see them and know that Earth is survivable.

In His Sister's Keeper, they learn that the signal flares fail to reach the Ark when the ashes of the 320 Ark citizens return to the ground.

Raven soon realizes that they can listen in on Mount Weather, something they won't be able to do if they blow the tower and in order to convince Abby of this she says "[she knows] what Clarke would do."

In Spacewalker, they work together to protect Finn before he turns himself in. When Clarke goes to Lexa to beg for her to spare Finn's life Raven hands her a knife and says if Lexa refuses Clarke should kill her. However, Clarke uses the knife to mercy kill Finn, devastating Raven.

In Remember Me, after Raven's suspected of trying to poison Lexa, Clarke goes to confront her by telling her that "if [she] tried to poison [Lexa], [she] needed to know". Raven, still saddened by Finn's death punches Clarke in the face and says to Clarke with disgust: "You're the only murderer here."

In Rubicon, Clarke asks Raven on her progress with the tone generators which Raven responds that "[tone generators] don't grow on trees" and she's working as fast as she can. Seeing that Clarke is clearly anxious and stressed, however, Raven hugs her and their relationship is seen to be improving.

In Nevermore, Raven who is being controlled by A.L.I.E. is used against Clarke blaming her for all the deaths of those she cared about including Wells, Finn, Lexa and her father. Clarke is furious and accidentally reveals to Raven that they intend on frying ALIE to free Raven.
