Pike: This land is ours now! Resist and you will be greeted by death.
Octavia: The only thing that matters now is killing Pike.
Octavia: You know her?
Bellamy: Yeah, she was in the cage next to mine.
Octavia: Where the hell is Echo?
Echo: My Queen, you've got your war.
Bellamy: ALIE controls people. One person at a time until there is no one left.
Jaha: What we're doing is too important. We need to increase the population of the City of Light. We won't be done until everyone is with us.
Clarke: I know how to stop ALIE.
Raven: I see it! It's a kill switch. Come on Clarke.
ALIE: The nuclear power plants that weren't destroyed by the bombs have been begun to melt down. The Earth's surface will be uninhabitable. So you see, the City of Light is the only thing that can save you. Would you really condemn the human race to die in six months?
Clarke: We'll figure something out. We always do.
Bellamy: Clarke you're not acting like someone who just saved the world.
Clarke: Because we didn't.
(Polis. Octavia is making her way down from the Polis tower. She sees Indra on a cross.)
Octavia: Indra? Indra. Indra.
Octavia: Gone. It's over.
Indra: And Pike?
Octavia: I waited until it was done.
(Bellamy and Clarke make their way down from the tower.)
Clarke: She'll be okay. Octavia can take care of herself.
Bellamy: That's not what I'm worried about.
Clarke: She won't be charged. Everyone will say that Pike had it coming.
Bellamy: Maybe we all do.
Clarke: How do we tell these people that the world is ending after everything they've been through?
Bellamy: We don't, not until we know ALIE was telling the truth.
Clarke: It was the truth.
Bellamy: Still, we keep it to ourselves until we know what we're dealing with and how to stop it.
Clarke: You're afraid of how people will react.
Bellamy: Yes. Besides, I could use a break from keeping you alive. We gave them back their pain, Clarke. Let's not add to that by telling them they're gonna die in six months. Good. Once everyone's down, we go home and we get to work. We didn't survive this long just to let a little radiation take us out.
Clarke: Thank you...for keeping me alive.
(A scream is heard in the distance and Clarke and Bellamy rush towards it.)
Bellamy: You don't make it easy.
(They both kneel before a grounder woman, clutching a dead loved one.)
Bellamy: He didn't fall.
Grounder Woman: Wanheda. You did this.
-- Title Sequence --
(Open on Arkadia. Monty, Harper, Jasper, and Raven are celebrating their victory with drinks.)
Jasper: Sorry about the...you know.
Harper: Smashing my face into a wall or pistol-whipping me?
Jasper: Can I plead the chip?
(Jasper moves to pour Raven a drink but she stops him.)
Jasper: We saved the world, you're supposed the celebrate. I think that's a rule.
Raven: I'll celebrate when we know the others are okay. And when I get the mainframe back online.
Jasper: Is it weird I want to back in?
Raven: It's not weird, Jasper.
Jasper: It is weird that you can code when you're not a coder, though, right? It's like ALIE upgraded your brain.
Raven: You okay?
Jasper: Are you? You've been through more than anyone.
Raven: There's nothing like a little pain to remind you you're alive.
Jasper: Wish I got an upgrade.
(Raven walks over to the radio.)
Raven: Ok, everyone out! Go on, take the music with you. I need quiet to fix the radio.
Harper: *uncomprehensible dialogue*
(Jasper notices a gun and takes it.)
Monty: You sure?
Raven: Yeah, I'm sure. Go on, celebrate. Please, enjoy yourselves.
Harper: (to Monty) I'm starving, help me raid the kitchen.
(Harper, Monty, and Jasper leave. Once Raven notices they are all gone she winces in pain. Raven lifts up a radio.)
Raven: Bellamy, are you there? Polis, this is Arkadia. Come in, Polis. Come on. Where are you?
(Polis. Kane and Jaha have come down from the tower.)
Jaha: What have I done?
Kane: What have we done?
(Abby approaches them both.)
Abby: I told you to stay upstairs with the rest of the wounded. Do you need another shot?
(Jaha leaves Abby and Kane.)
Abby: Do Miller and Jackson have everything they need up there?
Kane: Yeah. They blame us for the chip. It's not safe for us here anymore.
Grounders: Wanheda! Wanheda! Wanheda!
(Abby and Kane approach Bellamy and Clarke.)
Clarke: Good. You're down. We have to go. The rover's in the north woods.
Abby: What about the wounded?
Bellamy: The grounders don't want our help. Our people we treat at Arkadia.
Raven: (over radio) Hello? Bellamy, please. Come in.
Bellamy: Raven. Are you okay?
Raven: Yeah, yeah. We're all in one piece.
Bellamy: Good, there's something we need you to look into.
Raven: First tell me how my friends are. Did everyone make it? Clarke?
Clarke: I'm here, thanks to you. Raven, did ALIE ever tell you why she created the City of Light?
Raven: No. Why?
Grounder: The king! He's alive! We need a healer!
Clarke: Go, fill Raven in. They need a doctor!
(Abby, Clarke, and Kane run towards the grounders who are carrying a severely injured Roan.)
Clarke: Roan? He got shot trying to help me. I thought he was dead.
(Abby checks his pulse.)
Abby: Not yet, but he's close. No exit wound. We need to get the bullet out quickly.
(Echo comes up from behind Clarke and puts a sword to her neck.)
Echo: Get away from our King.
Abby: Wait, no, please.
Kane: You're making a mistake. We're part of the Coalition.
Abby: I can save him, but you have to let me.
Echo: We have our own healer. Take the king to the embassy with the rest of our dead. Do it now!
Clarke: Hey, Bellamy, don't.
Bellamy: Let her go, Echo! Let her go!
Echo: Back off, Bellamy.
Clarke: Your King is my friend. Let us help him.
Echo: I saw you in the City of Light. I know you destroyed it. Thank you for that.
(Echo releases Clarke.)
Echo: Look around you. Skaikru did this to us. Because of them, Ontari, your rightful Commander is dead! This imposter stole her flame.
Kane: No! Wanheda saved us, all of us. Grounder and Skaikru.
Echo: There would've been nothing to save us from if not for you.
Kane: Azgeda has no authority here.
Echo: We do now. In the name of King Roan, as rightful caretakers of the throne of the Commanders, Polis is now under Azgeda rule!
Rockline Ambassador: Like hell it is. Where's your war chief, girl?
Echo: Our war chief is dead, Ambassador. As a member of the Queen's guard, command of the army has fallen to me, until the king awakens.
Rockline Ambassador: If he awakens. Until a new Commander can ascend, Polis is to be ruled by ambassadors of the Coalition. If Azgeda wants it, they must take it by force.
(Echo decapitates the Ambassador.)
Echo: Consider it taken. No Skaikru leaves this city. For Ice Nation!
Bellamy: Looks like saving the world will have to wait.
(Jaha is placing the corpses of those who fell in the City of Light into a pile. He notices a woman crying clutching a dead man's body.)
(He approaches her.)
Jaha: Let me help you. Please.
(She spits in his face.)
Murphy: IT's good to see you're making friends.
Jaha: Hello, John. Glad to see you made it down. I could use some help with the dead.
Murphy: Go float yourself. These dead are on you, too, Chancellor.
(Murphy walks away and finds Emori.)
Murphy: Hey, what are you doing?
Emori: Stocking up. What does it look like?
Murphy: Stocking up for what, exactly?
Emori: It's not safe for my kind here. Freikdreina are forbidden. I have to leave this place, John.
Murphy: What, are you gonna bail on me again?
Emori: I didn't bail on you. I came back. I took the damn chip because Jaha said he would take me to you.
Murphy: Hey...come with me to Arkadia.
Murphy: I'm serious, Emori, okay? We can be together there. My people will protect you.
Emori: You sure about that? How many times have they cast you out?
Murphy: It's different now. They owe me. Okay, please? Come on.
(He takes her hand.)
Emori: Okay. We can still pick up a few things first, right?
Guard: Sir, that's everyone we could find. I've stationed ten guards at the temple door. Are you sure you don't want me to stay?
Kane: You lead them home, Major.
(Abby inspects Kane's crucifixion wounds.)
(He caresses her cheek.)
Kane: I'm okay. We focus on what comes next.
(Clarke watches them with a smile as Indra, Octavia, and Bellamy enter the temple.)
(Indra hugs Kane.)
Bellamy: You're not gonna like it.
Indra: When you destroyed the City of Light, there were a thousand Azgeda warriors inside the City of Polis.
Octavia: Good timing.
Indra: The only way to remove them is by force.
Octavia: Then let's remove them.
Abby: Slow down. You're talking about a war.
Indra: Yes, Rockline, Flokru, and Broadleaf will join Trikru without question. We'll still be short.
Abby: This is madness. We should be leaving with the others, while we still have time.
Kane: They know where we live. If we run ,they'll follow. There are eight other clans, how do we get them to join us?
Indra: I can do it, but I'll need to the flame.
Bellamy: Clarke, the clans will follow whoever has the flame.
Clarke: Azgeda won't.
Octavia: Then we fight. That's the point.
Clarke: No it's not. The point is, there's no time for a fight. We have to save Roan.
Octavia: Save him? They won't let us near him.
Abby: Wait a second. What don't we know?
Clarke: The reason ALIE created the City of Light.
Clarke: Nuclear reactors inside power planets that survived the bombs are melting down. Radiation levels are already rising. If we can't figure out a way to fix it, all of us will be dead in six months.
Kane: ALIE told you this?
Abby: And you believe her?
Bellamy: Raven's looking into it.
Clarke: I believe her.
Indra: Even if it's true, that's six months away. There are a thousand Ice Nation warriors on the street who want to kill us today.
Clarke: They won't kill us.
Octavia: How could you possibly know that?
Clarke: Because we're gonna surrender.
(Jaha returns Ontari's body wrapped in cloth to the Ice Nation, where Echo and other Azgeda warriors await the King's recovery.)
Azgeda Warrior: He has the commander.
Jaha: Ontari belongs with her people.
Echo: Put her with the others. And show him how Ice Nation repays a favor to the bringer of the Key.
(A few warriors attack Jaha, bringing him to the floor)
Seiku: Skaikru is surrenduring.
Echo: Guard the king. The rest, on me. And bring him too.
(The warriors detain Jaha and Echo lead them to where Kane, Indra, and Skaikru Guards are waiting. She orders her warriors to release Jaha, to which he falls over due to pain.)
Echo: Tell them I only talk to Bellamy.
(Indra looks up to reveal Bellamy, who is positioned at a high window, with a gun, peering over the scene. Jaha approaches Kane who has his hands out to support Jaha's weak posture.)
Jaha: It worked. She's in.
(A blade then rips through the cloth revealing that it is not Ontari, but in fact Octavia. She quietly views the Healer tending the King, before sliding along the floor taking out two Azgeda warriors. Octavia then uses a spear from one of the dead warriors to instantly kill the Healer. After, she unlocks a door allowing Clarke and Abby inside.)
Octavia: Your king's on the table.
(Clarke, used to Octavia's skills, quickly enters and tends to Roan. Abby enters, clearly astonished yet highly amused at Octavia's handiwork.)
Octavia: Well, go save him.
(Night falls over Polis, while Murphy and Emori approach Bellamy, Kane, and Indra who are discussing Skaikru's surrender terms.)
Emori: I don't like this, John.
Murphy: Bellamy's right there. Just wait here.
Indra: She's Ice Nation. She can't be trusted.
Murphy: Never a dull moment, huh?
Indra: Bellamy, pay attention. She's part of the royal guard, spies. That's why she's not marked. Very dangerous, very loyal.
Bellamy: Not to the people who saved her life.
Kane: Bellamy, I know how you feel about her but you can't lose control. You offer them technology, guns, whatever it takes to keep her talking. Is that clear?
Indra: I didn't agree to give them guns.
Murphy: Well, that's probably because you're not an idiot.
Kane: It won't get that far. Our objective is to buy time for Abby to save the King, and if you wanna help, grab a weapon, stand a post.
Bellamy: Take mine. I got this.
Murphy: Sorry, Bellamy.
(Bellamy and Echo approach each other while Murphy abandons the scene with Bellamy's gun.)
Emori: What is it?
Murphy: You know what I said about being safe with my people? You're plan was better. Let's go.
(Bellamy and Echo come face to face.)
Echo: Before you say anything, remember, I saved your life by taking you out of Mount Weather. I'm sorry I couldn't tell you to bring the girl. But I was following orders, Bellamy.
Bellamy: I wish it was that easy.
(Octavia looks down at the deliberation while Clarke and Abby work together to help Roan.)
Octavia: Today, you guys.
Abby: I need more time.
Echo: I know how it feels to lose someone you care about to war, but we do what we do for our people. You slaughter us, we slaughter you. That all went away in the City of Light, but it's back now, so here we are.
Abby: The bullet is pressing against his carotid. It's cutting off blood flow to his brain. As soon as I get it out, he should wake up.
Echo: What are the terms of your surrender?
Bellamy: We recognize Ice Nation rule, and you honor Lexa's coalition, including the 13th clan.
Abby: Come on. Come on. Almost there.
Bellamy: We'll give you guns and show you how to use them.
[Indra looks at them.]
Abby: Got it.
Clarke: Good job. What now?
Abby: Now we wait.
Echo: Trikru accepts this?
Bellamy: They're not happy about it.
Echo: Not much they can do now, though, is there, without an army. You were there. Then you know why everyone hates Skaikru and why we can never accept your terms.
Bellamy: The alternative is war. Is that what you want?
Echo: No one wants war. Lay down your guns, and we'll let your children live.
Abby: His breathing is still too shallow.
Clarke: You said his lungs were fine.
Abby: No. I said I thought so. It's possible a bone fragment could've lodged in the tissue.
Echo: I'll give you time to decide. [turns around]
[ holds her arm]
Bellamy: I wasn't done talking.
[Echo flips Bellamy onto the ground]
Echo: You are now.
Octavia: Screw this.
Abby: Come on.
Octavia: It's time to go.
Abby: No. He needs more time.
Clarke: If Roan doesn't wake up, we're all dead.
Echo: Guns on the ground, or he dies.
Indra: We disarm, we're done.
Kane: Abby will come through. Do what she says. Guns on the ground now.
Clarke: They're here.
Octavia: Back door.
Abby: I have to close, or he'll bleed out.
Octavia: No, we have to go, or we'll bleed out.
Clarke: This is gonna have to do.
Abby: Good job.
[Octavia, Clarke & Abby are met at the door by grounders and a fight ensues. They are caught by Echo.]
Echo: They were trying to kill the king! Check him!
Clarke: No. We were trying to save him.
Echo: For my queen!
[Echo raises her sword at Clarke and is cut off by Roan coughing]
Echo: My king.
Clarke: Roan, help us. Tell them we're friends.
[Roan coughs as he stands up]
Abby: You shouldn't try to stand so soon.
Roan: Where is Ontari?
Echo: Dead, sire, killed by them.
Clarke: We couldn't save her, but we did what we came here to do. Now I need you to honor your promise to protect my people.
Roan: Yeah. That was before your people shot me and killed my commander.
Octavia: We just saved your damn life.
Echo: Roan, your people are hungry for you to lead them. Do so now as your mother would have. Kill Wanehda. Take her power. And rule over everything.
(Arkadia, Harper & Monty are in bed having just had sex)
Harper: That was something.
Monty: I know.
Harper: Hey Look, um, now that everybody's coming back, I just-I don't want you to think that I expect anything.
Monty: Uh, what if I do?
Harper: Well, yeah. That'd be good, too.
[They kiss and Raven barges in.]
Monty: Knocking's not your thing, is it?
Raven: Get dressed and meet me in engineering.
Harper: Why? What's wrong?
Raven: We're all gonna die.
Monty: I'll get Jasper.
[Cut to Jasper leaving Monty a note and preparing to commit suicide]
[[There's a knock on the door]
Jasper: One second.
Monty: What were you doing?
Jasper: Uh, nothing. Sleeping.
Monty: Raven needs us in engineering. Let's go.
Raven: After the second Fukushima disaster, Panacea Power patened a failsafe system with mulitple redundancies. By 2048, two dozen mega reactors were built to withstand any disaster, even a nuclear attack.
Harper: Well, that's good, right?
Jasper: There's always a catch.
Raven: The plants were built to be self-sustaining for a hundred years.
Monty: So the warrantee just ran out.
Monty: This is us. [he points to a gauge]
Raven: Yes. It's been yellow since we've landed. Yellow we can handle, our bodies adapted in space but it's rising when it should be falling, and when it hits red--
Jasper: We're dead. Uh, how long?
Raven: At the current rate of increase, 6 months, but it'll be bad way before that.
Jasper: Can we stop it?
[They all look at each other, Jasper sighs and starts laughing]
Jasper: Oh...Oh man.
[He takes the gun out of his pocket and puts it on the table]
Jasper: I'm gonna go watch the sunrise.
(Cut to Roan's chambers)
Echo: Wanheda and her friends are locked up. The rest of Skaikru appears to have fled, but we're ready to ride them down on your command.
Roan: Not yet.
Echo: Forgive me for saying so, but we can't afford for our people to think you're weak.
[Roan burns himself with a hot sword]
Roan: Call me weak again.
Echo: I meant no offfense.
Roan: Yeah, you did. Say your piece.
Echo: You haven't been home in more than three years.
Roan: You act as if that was my choice.
Echo: Of course it wasn't. You were a bargaining chip. It almost broke your mother to send you away. Killing Lexa in Soulou Gonplei was to be your triumphant return, but you lost. Our war chiefs dont respect you.
Roan: Then I'll get new war chiefs.
Echo: The army is loyal to them, not you.
Roan: And who are you loyal to...spy?
Echo: I'm loyal to my clan, to my king. Let me serve you. I can help you do what your mother never could, what Ontari never could.
Roan: Rule everything?
Echo: Yes. Trikru is weak and ready to fall, and skaikru is more hated than ever. Give the order to take them both out, and our war chiefs will follow you. Show them Wanheda's head while you do it, and they will worship you. Bring honor to your grandfather's crown.
[Roan holds the crown in his hands]
(Cut to Clarke and everyone locked away)
Abby: I know that look.
Clarke: I loved her, Mom.
Abby: I know.
[Clarke cries & grounders enter]
Grounder: Wanheda, on your feet.
Clarke: Where's the king? Hey, I need to see Roan.
[Clark's head gets covered with a bag and taken out of the cell]
Bellamy: Echo! Echo, listen to me. Echo!
(Clarke is being walked to an undisclosed location)
Echo: Wanheda, as requested. Shall I summon the war chiefs?
Roan: Get out. It's always something with you, isn't it?
Clarke: Roan, we need your help.
Roan: Well, this should be good .
Clarke: Something's coming, something unlike anything we've seen before.
Roan: What's coming?
Clarke: You know the fire that ended the world. Lexa called it Praimfaya. It'll be like that, a wave of radiation that'll kill everything in its path.
Roan: Our ancestors survived Praimfaya, and so will we.
Clarke: No you wont, not this time, not without us.
[People are shouting in the distance]
Clarke: Look. I don't know if we can stop it, but if we can't, all of us will be dead in six months. Science is our only hope. Please, honor Lexa's coalition. Recognize Skaikru as the 13th clan so we can go home and come up with a way for us to survive, all of us.
Roan: Listen to that. I let you live, I'll be dead in six days, not six months. Sorry. Can't.
Crowd: Blood must have Blood!
Clarke: I'll give you this. (She hands him the chip)
Roan: We were told it was lost. You give me one good reason why I shouldn't just take that and cut your head off.
Clarke: I just gave you one, and you know I wouldn't be offering this unless what I was saying were true. Take it. The clans will follow you. That's what you want.
Roan: I want what's best for my people, same as you.
Clarke: Then help me save them. Roan, listen to me. You wanted an Ice Nation Commander. With this, you control who ascends. There will never be a commander to rule over Azgeda unless you allow it.
[Roan takes the chip and we cut to him speaking to his people]
Roan: I know you've all come here for an execution, but no one else will die here today. The City of Light has fallen...and there is no commander left to rule us. Until another nightblood ascends, I - King Roan of Azgeda, eldest son of Nia, Grandson of Theo- am Caretaker of the throne and keeper of the Flame.
Grouder: You're a king not a priest! This is blasphemy.
Roan: Not blasphemy. Order! Until another ascends, Azgeda honors and will defend the coalition of the last true commander--Lexa Kom Trikru, including the 13th clan. Let it be known that an attack against skaikru is an attack against us all.
Echo: From your king. With this, you'll be safe in any of our lands. You think we'll ever be able to trust each other again?
Bellamy: I doubt it.
Echo: Welcome back to the coalition.
Bellamy: Time to go.
Kane: We'll do our best to keep the king on his throne.
Clarke: We'll find a way to beat the radiation.
Octavia: If either of you screw this up, we die. No pressure.
Bellamy: This is serious, O. If anyone find out why Roan helped us, it'll be every clan for itself. The king will fall, and they'll come after us.
Clarke: It's getting dark. Let's do this.
Abby: May we meet again.
Clarke: May we meet again.
Kane: You turn the page. You turn the page, and you don't look back. You do better today than you did yesterday. You understand? Before you know it, you'll deserve to surivive.
Bellamy: I hope so.
Kane: The youth inherited the Earth.
Abby: And they have six months to save it.
Bellamy: Okay, Princess, what now?
Clarke: Now we survive.
