  • With the idea of WONKRU and WE ARE ALL GROUNDERS NOW being circulated by the end of season 4, I'm under no illusions that the ideal will stick, given Indra and Octavia's first capital decree was to commit genocide, but looking at the realistic situation of having to live together for 6 years in a restricted space like the bunker, and relying on each other for survival, could we expect the lines between Skaikru and Grounders to be blurred. With grounders operating techology like the hydroponic farms, and water recyclers and all. I know for sure that Echo and Emori at this point are Skaikru, spending 6 years in space within the ark with just 7 people is definitely turning them into sky people, but the bunker is curious. Unless of course they have been warring and segregating, which I wouldn't put past Indra and Octavia, we could see an entirely new faction emerge from the bunker. What do you all think?

    • I think they are neither Grounders nor Skaikru, they're only Wonkru now as Octavia said, new laws, new kind of leader, new traditions, new place to live... of course they still come from the Ark or the Ground but after six years they all became Wonkru (or the enemies of Wonkru, and then they died^^)

      Same for Spacekru, Jason said that they all learnt from each other (except Murphy apparently) so I don't think old clans will be very relevant now

      Okay so it sounds like you havent watched season 5 yet. You probably have by now tho. SO if anyone else has the same question->

      You are correct the 12 clans (11 grounder clans[Flokru died from the radiation] and skaikru) didn't get along.  A month after the Praimfaya everything was okay. There was a council with delegates from each clan and Oselya(Octavia). But then the hydroponics farm stopped working. It slowed down production. The headof the hydroponics farm, Cooper, lead a rebellion. She killed a few grounders and took some people from skaikru into the mess hall. The grounders were mad. Octavia was also mad. There was a sort of war in the bunker. Octavia ended it by killing people. Then she was named Blodreina. She also took Cooper and her associates as prisoners and threw them into the gladiator pits. If you commited a crime you must kill for your freedom. Cooper won the first time and was released. She became one of Octavia's advisers. People were becoming scared and followed Wonkru. But there was still a problem. The food. SInce the hydrofarm was slow and all the prepackaged food was finished people needed something to eat. So Abby propesed they eat the people who die in the pits. This year was known as the Dark Year. Everyone turned into Cannibals. You would get a cube of human meat and vegetable broth. Marcus Kane refuesed to eat and so did others. Blodreina then forcefully made people heat the cubes. SHe even killed afew people to force Kane to eat it. Though this isn't on screen the hydro farm started to work and people were back to eating normal food. Plus Emori and Echo arn't exactly Skaikru. They are Spacekru. But you could also call them SKaikru since they are the very few grounders that can operate technology.
