Act One
Bellamy Two meals a day for people working as hard as ours, we won't make any friends.

Well, if there's one thing our people understand, it's rationing.

Besides, once we close those doors, it'll be one meal a day for the next five years.

Try one meal every other day.Hunting parties are coming back with less and less.

Thanks to your friend Niylah, we're preserving more meat than ever. But it's still not enough.Without a way to make water, growing our own protein like we did on the Ark is not an option.Remember that when we're starving.
Bellamy I won't be starving because I won't be inside.
Clarke Yes, you will.
Raven Does that mean you made the list?
Clarke No. What about drinking water?

Clarke, don't change the subject.

We need to know who's gonna be on the inside of these doors when the radiation comes.
Clarke We don't need to know now.
Man on P.A. We need some medical help at the front gate. Looks like we got some sick people here.
Act Two
Soldier Do not come any closer.
Nyko Please. They need Skaikru medicine.
Bellamy Move. Stand back.
Clarke Nyko.
Miller What if it's a grounder attack like they did with Murphy?
Clarke What happened to them?
Nyko The sickness. We lost more than 40 on the way.
Bellamy Luna?
Luna Please don't turn us away because of what I did to you.
Abby Out of my way. Please let me through.
Clarke Mom. What is this?

Fever, lesions, vomiting.

It's ARS.
Bellamy What's ARS?
Abby Acute radiation sickness. When did the symptoms start?
Luna Not sure. Right before the fish started dying.
Raven The fish are dying?
Nyko Floating on the sea to the horizon in every direction.
Abby It's not contagious. Let's get them to medbay. Come on.
Raven I got you. Ok. All right. There you go.
Clarke It's already here.
Octavia It's not safe for you here. What do you want?

I need you to handle something for me the way you handled Ambassador Rafel.

We should speak alone.
Octavia If you can't trust Indra, you can't trust me.
Roan The flame's been stolen.
Octavia How? When?
Roan Just now from my quarters while I was training.
Indra How can you be so careless?
Octavia We need to lock down this city and search everyone.
Indra We can't. If word gets out that he's lost the flame, the other clans will question his rule, Trikru loudest of all.
Roan Then I'll be forced to answer their questions with my army.
Octavia Or we can just find it. Where do I start?
Roan Whoever did this got in and out of the tower without being seen. In order to risk that, she'd have to care more about the flame than her own life.
Octavia "She"?
Roan The new flamekeeper.
Indra Perhaps you should look closer to home. You're not exactly beloved.
Roan My people want an Ice Nation king.
Indra The ambassadors don't.
Roan The ambassadors are cowards and know I'd have their heads. The keepers of the flame--fanatics. I'd do it myself, but my guards won't let me out of their sight.
Octavia I'll handle it.
Roan What's wrong? You created a killer. In the street, they're calling her Skairipa. Death from above.
Indra I'm so proud.
Roan You should be. One kill to prevent thousands, that's good politics.
Murphy You said there'd be food here.
Emori There should be. These woods have always been good to me. Now there's not even bugs.

Well, fortunately, I'm not hungry enough for that to be upsetting yet.

I actually kind of miss Polis. They had this drink there -- sweet, made out of sheep's milk.
Emori Ontari gave this to you?
Murphy Yeah. I told you it wasn't all bad.
Emori You told me you were trying to survive.
Murphy I was.
Emori What else wasn't bad,John, sex?
Murphy Emori, I don't want to talk about this.
Emori Fine. Then let's not.
Murphy I didn't have a choice, ok? Emori. I didn't have a choice.
Emori Where are you going?
Murphy I'm gonna go to Arkadia.
Emori What? Why?
Murphy I'm a better thief than I am a hunter.
Emori I'll come with you.
Murphy No. I'll draw less attention alone. Tonight we feast.
Emori Ok.
Clarke They're getting worse. There's got to be something we can do.
Jackson Delactivene might help, but Raven's got the meds on lockdown.
Abby Leave Raven to me. What, exactly, do the tests show?
Jackson The exposure is acute. Without treatment, there's little to no chance of recovery. It looks like the radiation is internal, ingested from irradiate fish. None of the outbreaks appear to be from airborne exposure. That's the good news.
Abby Not for them.
Luna You think I deserve this for refusing the flame?
Bellamy No one deserves to suffer. Besides, this would've happened anyway.
Abby It's worth a try.
Luna This is all that's left of my people. Can you save them?
Clarke We'll do everything we can. You have my word. Tell me something good.
Bellamy Raven's looking for us.
Raven So Luna's rig is here, and if the fish in these waters are dying, well, basically, we're screwed.
Bellamy I don't understand. A.L.I.E. said we had six months.
Raven We don't.
Clarke Well, then how long do we have?
Raven It's hard to say. Radiation is dispersed by jet stream and carried by ocean currents, so it's not an exact science, but the leading indicators are small species die-offs -- fish, insects. Based on the new data, i'd say we have... two months of survivability... maybe less.
Bellamy The Ark won't be ready.
Raven It'll be close. If we triple the man hours and work round the clock, we should be able to achieve a hard seal before the black rain comes. We just have to decide who gets to live here.
Clarke Raven, we're not talking about the list again.

Clarke, we are running out of time. We have to make a plan for the day we close the doors, drill for it, make sure only the survivors have guns, agree on protocols for dealing with the people who are pissed off they're not chosen. You asked me to be in charge of rationing, and I am doing it, but choosing who gets to live or die is your specialty. [Engine starts]

No one's scheduled to take the rover.
Bellamy Out of the vehicle.
Jaha I need to make a run.
Raven All supply runs go through me, and shouldn't you be working on the patch to sector 5?
[Engine stops]
Jaha A patch for a ship that can only save a hundred people? Why are you surprised? I am an engineer. We have no way to generate water. The harder number is 400. Can you really sentence 400 more of our own people to death?
Clarke We don't have a choice.
Jaha What if you do? What if I told you there might be a fallout shelter less than a day's drive from here, a fallout shelter built to sustain thousands?
Raven We've been through the chancellor's files. All the bunkers you considered for the hundred were listed as compromised or unviable, and now Mount Weather is, too.
Jaha Those were government bunkers. [Hands them a tablet with a news article on it]
Bellamy A doomsday cult?
Jaha That's right -- the second dawn.
Clarke They built a bunker?
Jaha Their whole theology was based on riding out the end of the world.
Raven And why didn't you consider it?
Jaha We couldn't prove it existed.
Bellamy So why are you considering it now?
Jaha Because before now, we didn't need it.
Clarke You found it, didn't you?
Jaha We can't be sure unless we check it out.
Raven No. No way. We need that rover for hauling pieces of a 3-ton patch we're build--
Clarke Yeah, but if he's right we don't need a patch.

Can I talk to you guys for a second? [Raven, Clarke and Bellamy walk away from Jaha]

Can you please remind Clarke what happened the last time Jaha went looking for salvation?
Bellamy Raven, if that bunker is real, we can save a lot more than a hundred people.
Raven If it's not, we've lost another day.
Clarke Hey, look. If it's not, I'll make the list... ok?
Raven Oh, do what you want. I've got a ship to seal. [Goes inside]
Bellamy I'll drive. [They leave with the rover]
Cadogan The end is coming. Hear me as I say it this time. The end is coming, and it's coming soon.
Jaha He gave this speech two weeks before the bombs.
Cadogan The world is dark and getting darker all the time. Everything we once trusted has turned on us-- government, religion. Even technology has become a weapon in their hands used to poison our minds. I know you're in pain. I know you're afraid, but it doesn't have to be like this. There is a way out of the darkness. I can show it to you. You can be saved. Join me. Join us, and together when the horsemen come, from the ashes, we will rise.
Clarke Please tell me you have more than this.
[Hands tablet to Jaha]
Jaha In the two years before the bombs, Cadogan sold off most of the Second Dawn's real estate holdings, generating tens of millions of dollars, but there was one thing he didn't sell.
[Hands tablet back]
Jaha I found this in his autobiography. It's his childhood home. His father built a bunker there to save his family. I think Cadogan used the church's money to expand it.
Bellamy He grew up there. Maybe he kept it for sentimental value.
Jaha Hmm. His father beat him almost daily in that house. He hated living there.
Clarke Why keep it if you're liquidating everything else?
Jaha Because that bunker is there. I can feel it.
Bellamy Guy sounds like a religious fanatic to me.
Jaha Maybe, or maybe he was just a leader willing to do whatever it took to save his people.
