|“||You saved me and I don't just mean by opening that door.||”|
|— Kane to Abby [src]|
Kane and Abby was the relationship between Marcus Kane and Abigail Griffin. They were portrayed by cast members Henry Ian Cusick, Greyston Holt and Paige Turco, and début in the first episode of Season One.
On the Ark, Abby and Kane constantly had opposing views. Kane saw Abby as a threat to his goals and frequently had her arrested and even almost floated her once due to his strict rule-following and her bending of the rules. Later, in The Calm, he seems to start caring for Abby, saving her life when he is exploring the other deck to look for survivors. On Earth, Marcus is the first person to follow Abby out of the Ark ship once it lands.
In The 48, they go out looking for the Camp of the Delinquents and Clarke together. After Abby gives guns to the Delinquents to help them escape and look for Clarke and the others in Inclement Weather, Marcus sentences her to shock-lashing in Reapercussions. Following, Marcus tells Abby he's leading a peace mission to get the kids back before passing along the Chancellorship to her. Marcus returns to Camp Jaha in Spacewalker and the two rejoice at the sight of each other. In Resurrection, Abby finds Marcus trapped under rubble after the missile hits Tondc. He is pulling on a piece of metal to make noise and she grabs his hand to stop him. Abby tries to help him and he tells her to leave him and go find Clarke until Abby explains that Clarke escaped as she already knew about the attack. When rocks fall down and trap them both further, they talk about how their actions on the Ark have influenced Clarke and the sins they have to answer for. In Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2), after they are captured by Mount Weather and Abby has her bone marrow extracted, they return to Camp Jaha, holding hands.
In Wanheda (Part 1), it is revealed that Abby is still looking for Clarke in the three months after the Mount Weather War, and Marcus is helping her, as she still holds the Chancellorship. However, in Watch the Thrones, she loses it to Charles Pike in an impromptu election demanded by Marcus when almost the whole camp votes for Pike instead of him. The two still remain a team, despite the new challenges that arise thanks to Chancellor Pike, for instance negotiating with the grounders who have been betrayed by Pike, and owing to the return of Jaha to Arkadia, with his new ideas about the City of Light. In Bitter Harvest, Abby kisses Marcus on the cheek, in order to give him "hope". They are seemingly separated until Stealing Fire.
Marcus is to be executed along with Lincoln and Sinclair by Pike for his crimes against the Chancellor but the three men are freed by Harper, Miller, Bryan, Octavia, and Abby to leave Arkadia and escape the punishment. Abby, however, decides to stay behind. In response, he kisses her passionately and says, "May we meet again," to which she responds, "We will." The two then do not meet again until Join or Die, when Marcus goes to Polis to accompany Pike and survey the grounders' torture of him. Abby is there also, with Thelonious Jaha (as he and A.L.I.E. are chipping the grounders there, having chipped Ontari, their acting Heda, first). Marcus is thrown into a room in the tower, Abby entering shortly afterward and pretending to be unchipped in order to obtain Clarke's whereabouts from him. She seduces him but he soon discovers it's not her. Abby has him crucified for his resistance. However, Marcus' defiance wavers when Jaha threatens to kill Abby, and he takes the chip for her. Later, in Perverse Instantiation (Part 2), they do not reunite until the ending when Clarke shuts down the City of Light and all the chipped victims are saved. Abby and Marcus share an embrace while crying, to comfort each other.
In Heavy Lies the Crown Abby and Kane sleep together.
Later in the episode Abby removes her necklace that held her wedding ring from her marriage to Jake Griffin, before telling Kane that she is no longer needed at Polis and must return to Arkadia. They spend the majority of the season separated from one another, communicating only by radio. In The Other Side Abby learns that Kane has been locked outside of the bunker by Clarke and Jaha. She teams up with Bellamy Blake. She drugs Jaha, knocking him out. Her and Bellamy work together to open the bunker door, letting Kane and Octavia Blake inside. As a result only 100 members of Skaikru can remain in the bunker and 384 people have to be sacrificed. Abby is given a spot because she is essential personnel, the remaining spots are filled by lottery. Abby asks Kane to pick 81 names from the bowl, effectively giving her spot to someone else, she says she will be outside during Praimfaya. When Kane protests she tells him that she loves him, but she has made her decision. There is nearly a riot, so Jaha and Kane gas Skaikru, knocking everyone unconscious. Kane does not follow Abby's wishes, and keeps her inside the bunker.
Throughout the Series
Throughout Season One, they have many disputes and disagree on decisions that are made on the Ark. If it hadn't been for Thelonious Jaha, Marcus would have floated Abby for breaking the law. However, the airing of Jake Griffin's message and the effect it has on the people appears to have affected Kane as well. Having previously dismissed her work with Raven, Kane tells Abby that he left two men to monitor the radio with explicit instructions to contact them if they hear anything. It's implied that Kane at least voted in Abby's favor not to float her and was possibly the one to make the convincing argument regarding her worth. Following the Culling and the death of Marcus' mother, the two become closer and begin to understand each other's decisions. Abby comforts Marcus and he starts to take what Jaha told him to heart - that you need to know when not to follow the law. Kane is distressed when he thinks Abby was on the Exodus ship and is relieved when he finds she is alive. He is prepared to launch the Ark manually and sacrifice his own life and Abby tries to stop him. It is at this point Abby really starts to see how much Marcus has changed. However, Jaha is the one who launches the Ark manually and Abby and Marcus are sent to Earth.
In Echoes, Abby and Kane come down from the Polis tower together. Later, in the temple, Abby checks Kane's crucifixion wounds. Kane caresses her cheek and reassures her he's ok and they need to focus on what comes next. At the end of the episode, when Bellamy and Clarke leave Polis, Abby and Kane stay behind together. In Heavy Lies the Crown, Abby and Kane are seen after sleeping together. Abby tells Kane that Roan is expecting her and he helps her fasten on her necklace with Jake's ring. Later, Abby tells Kane she is no longer needed in Polis by Roan and she needs to return to Arkadia. Kane notices she's no longer wearing her necklace with Jake's ring and they kiss. In A Lie Guarded, Abby and Kane are radioing one another. Abby is on Emori's boat in order to go to Becca's Lab and make Nightblood and Kane is Polis. Kane tells Abby he wishes he was with her and tells her to stay safe. Abby then tells him to stay safe too before clutching the radio to her heart. In We Will Rise, Kane tells Clarke he's coming with her to Becca's Island. Clarke tells him he can't and Kane expresses worry over Abby going into space to make Nightblood. Clarke reassures him and offers to send Abby Kane's love which he encourages her to do. In Gimme Shelter, Kane radios Abby and informs her for the black rain. Abby then asks Kane to help her with her moral dilemma and Kane tells her humanity is her greatest strength. In the end, he tells her that they need to survive then they can find their humanity again. In The Other Side, Abby is upset that Kane is not inside the Second Dawn Bunker and even more so when Jaha refuses to open it and let him in. She and Bellamy scheme against him to open the door. At the end of the episode, Kane and Abby are together speaking Bellamy, Clarke, and Jaha. In The Chosen, Abby is radioing Raven and Raven informs her that they can heal her brain injury. Kane, who is also in the room, expresses concern and confusion but Abby dismisses him. Later, Abby confesses to Kane she doesn't deem herself worthy of survival and begs him to pull 81 names from the lottery so she can die with Praimfaya. Kane tries to convince her otherwise but Abby refuses telling him she loves him before leaving the room. At the end of the episode, Abby is among the gassed Arkadian's who are kept in bunker and Kane strokes her cheek and asks for her forgiveness.
