She swings up at him on her hands and knees but he smacks the sword out of her hand and then kicks it away. She slams her fists into his knee, bringing him down, and then quickly stands to knee him in the chin and snatches his sword. She runs and grabs the other one, and twirls them like the Lextra she is. Roan looks around, panicked, before he socks a guard standing nearby and takes his spear. Not to be out extra’d, he twirls the spear too in an even more impressive display. They advance on each other and Roan swings the sword at her head but Lexa ducks it. She swings and him, spinning and attacking with both swords and succeeds in backing him up be catches every blow with the spear. Suddenly, he catches his spear between both of her blades and her jerks one out of her hand. She goes to swing the other but he knocks that one out of her hand too. Titus rises, frantic. He kicks her square in the chest and she flies before landing flat on her back. Titus sits back down, hilariously defeated. Clarke looks like she’s going to piss herself. Roan advances as Lexa lays flat on her back. Roan puts the spear to her neck before he pulls back and jabs down for Lexa’s throat, but Lexa rolls out of the way and the spear just hits the concrete. Lexa swings her legs around and catches him in the knee, flipping him onto his back. They both scramble to their feet, Lexa complete with a little cartwheel, and Roan swings at Lexa as she ducks. He stabs forward and she catches it under her arm, and smacks his arm so he let’s go. She turns the spear on him and catches him in the leg with the blade, bringing him to his knees, and then hits his face with the butt of the spear. She smacks him under the chin with the butt of the spear, throwing him onto his back. She advances and holds the spear to his neck. Nia stands.]

walk forward to stand in front of Lexa and push Nia to her knees.)
 
 
TITUS
 
Queen Nia of ''Azgeda'' has confessed to
 
the destruction of Mt. Weather, resulting in the death of 49 members of ''Skaikru''. ''Wanheda'', what say you?
 
 
CLARKE
 
''Skaikru'' demands justice.
 
 
NIA
 
''Ice Nation does not answer to this girl.''
 
 
TITUS
 
''Silence.'' The punishment for your
 
crime is death. Do you have anything to say in your defense?
 
 
NIA
 
I need no defense. She does. Today is judgement day. I call for a vote of no
 
confidence.
 
 
TITUS
 
Take this queen to meet her fate.

step towards her, but one of the Ambassadors stands.)
 
 
AMBASSADOR #1
 
''Not so fast. Commander no longer.''

more Ambassadors stand.)

Take them away too!

Lexa, please, execute these traitors-

CLARKE
 
Commander, what is this?
 
 
LEXA
 
This is a coup.
 
 
(Nia starts
 
to stand. Clarke is frantic, Lexa is ever-collected.)
 
 
NIA
 
This is the law, her law. A unanimous vote of the ambassadors or death are all
 
that can remove a commander from power.
 
 
CLARKE
 
It’s not unanimous.
 
 
NIA
 
We don’t recognize the legitimacy of Skaikru.
 
 
(Titus is
 
furious and walks down to meet Nia.)
 
 
TITUS
 
We do. Yesterday, Skaikru took the brand. They are the 13<sup>th</sup> clan.
 
This vote of no confidence fails. All these coup plotters will suffer the exact
 
same fate as the Ice Queen.
 
 
NIA
 
She won’t take our heads because she knows our armies will retaliate. None of
 
us here want war.
 
 
LEXA
 
We both know what you
 
want, Nia.
 
 
(She stands
 
and slowly goes down to meet Nia.)
 
 
LEXA
 
If you think me unfit to command,
 
issue the challenge and let’s get on it with.
 
 
NIA
 
Very well. You are challenged.
 
 
LEXA
 
And I accept your
 
challenge.
 
 
TITUS
 
So be it. ''Single combat''. Warrior
 
against warrior to the death. Queen Nia of ''Azgeda'',
 
who do you choose to be your champion?
 
 
NIA
 
My son Roan, Prince of ''Azgeda.''
 
 
(Roan looks
 
up, blind-sided and none too pleased. Nia smiles blandly at him. Clarke is
 
instantly terrified because she clearly thinks Roan is awesome, like the rest
 
of us.)''<br>
 
''
 
TITUS
 
''Heda'', who will fight for you?
 
 
(Lexa turns
 
and returns to her throne.)
 
 
LEXA
 
I’m the Commander. No one
 
fights for me.

(Open on Arkadia, the Chancellor’s office. Kane, Abby, Pike and others are
 
standing around the table.)
 
 
KANE
 
Best we can tell, Mt. Weather was destroyed by an internal self-destruct
 
mechanism. It worked as designed. 49 of our citizens were lost.
 
 
PIKE
 
So when do we strike back?
 
 
ABBY
 
We don’t. The Ice Nation took credit for the attack and the Commander will
 
bring them to justice.
 
 
PIKE
 
So, now we’re trusting Grounders to punish Grounders? I’m sorry, Madam
 
Chancellor, but I lost more than half of my remaining people yesterday and four
 
times that many since we landed. Now, in my experience, Grounders understand
 
one thing – strength. It’s simple. We need to hit them now. We need to hit them
 
hard. Leave no survivors.
 
 
KANE
 
There’s nothing simple about this. This attack by the Ice Nation was against
 
Lexa, not us.
 
 
PIKE
 
Are you saying this isn’t our fight?
 
 
KANE
 
I’m saying we were collateral damage in someone else’s war.
 
 
PIKE
 
But it’s not someone else’s war anymore. Look, if we don’t defend ourselves,
 
they will take what we have. That’s what they do. Mark my words. The Grounders
 
are coming for us.
 
 
ABBY
 
We’ll take it under advisement. Meeting adjourned.
 
 
(Pike,
 
furious, turns to leave and opens the door to find Bellamy patiently waiting.
 
He walks past him as do the other red shirts. Kane sits.)
 
 
ABBY
 
After the election tomorrow, he’s your problem.
 
 
(Abby
 
leaves and Bellamy enters.)
 
 
BELLAMY
 
Sir?
 
 
KANE
 
Why aren’t you at your post?
 
 
(BELLAMY
 
puts his guard jacket on the table.)
 
 
KANE
 
Don’t do this.
 
 
BELLAMY
 
49 of the people I swore to protect died yesterday because I left.
 
 
KANE
 
That’s not your fault, Bellamy. Place the blame where it belongs, on the Ice
 
Nation.
 
 
BELLAMY
 
The Ice Nation didn’t tell Gina to stay there. That was me.
 
 
(Kane stands
 
and touches his shoulder.)
 
 
KANE
 
Given the information you had at the time, you made a reasonable choice. You
 
were trying to save lives.
 
 
BELLAMY
 
But I didn’t.
 
 
(He turns
 
and leaves.)
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on the yard of Arkadia. Octavia is drinking water from a bucket. I’m not
 
kidding. Jasper, wearing a backpack, is storming away while Monty chases after
 
him.)
 
 
MONTY
 
Jasper! Jasper!
 
 
JASPER
 
Get away from me!
 
 
(Octavia looks over, sets down the bucket, and runs over to them. She has no
 
chill.)
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
Hey! Jasper, what’s
 
wrong?
 
 
MONTY
 
He’s not going the memorial.
 
 
JASPER
 
It’s a little late for a Mt. Weather memorial, don’t you think?
 
 
(An alarm
 
chines.)
 
 
VOICE ON PA
 
All Arkadia security personnel, report to the main gate.
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
What now?
 
 
VOICE ON PA
 
All Arkadia security personnel, report to the main gate.
 
 
(Monty,
 
Jasper, and Octavia walk towards the gate to see Nyko and other miscellaneous
 
Grounders just past the gate, surrounded by guards.)
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
Nyko.
 
 
(She heads
 
towards them and Monty follows. Jasper takes the opportunity to slip away which
 
Monty notices too late. The Grounders are being roughed up by the guard and
 
Octavia runs up.)
 
 
NYKO
 
Leave them alone. They’re sick!
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
Hey, hey, hey. That’s
 
enough. Stop it!
 
 
 
(Monty
 
hesitates, looking at the conflict, but turns and runs after Jasper.)
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
The Chancellor told Nyko
 
that we would help.
 
 
GUARD
 
You’re one of them. You take them in.
 
 
(Octavia
 
turns and puts one of the Grounders arms around her neck.)
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
I got him, come on.
 
 
(The whole
 
party heads towards Arkadia.)
 
 
NYKO
 
I heard about Mt. Weather. I’m very sorry.
 
 
---
 
 
(Cut to Jasper cutting open a portion of the gate with bolt cutters. Monty runs
 
up on him.)
 
 
MONTY
 
Jasper, camp’s in lockdown, what are you doing?
 
 
JASPER
 
Go to your memorial, Monty.
 
 
MONTY
 
Maybe I will.
 
 
JASPER
 
Maybe you should.
 
 
MONTY
 
Fine.
 
 
(Monty
 
watches as Jasper cuts open the panel and steps through. He hesitates, then
 
follows him.)
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on Polis, Lexa’s throne room. She is sitting in her throne, surrounded by
 
the Natblidas. Clarke enters and stands next to Titus.)
 
 
LEXA
 
''What are the three pillars of being a Commander?''
 
 
NATBLIDA #1
 
''Wisdom.''
 
 
NATBLIDA #2
 
''Compassion.''
 
 
NATBLIDA #3
 
''And strength.''
 
 
CLARKE
 
Talk her out of it yet?
 
 
TITUS
 
No, but maybe you can.
 
 
CLARKE
 
I don’t understand. The
 
queen’s not fighting, why should she?
 
 
TITUS
 
The queen’s strength is not in doubt. Thanks to you, ''Heda''’s is.
 
 
LEXA
 
''Train hard and remember, you are each worthy of your
 
Nightblood.''
 
 
TITUS
 
Nightbloods!
 
 
(Titus claps and they all rise.)
 
 
TITUS
 
''Follow me''.
 
 
(The Natblidas follow him out.)
 
 
LEXA
 
Aden, stay.
 
 
(Aden hangs
 
back and stands with Lexa. Clarke steps forward to Lexa.)
 
 
LEXA
 
Clarke, this is Aden. Aden
 
is the most promising of my novitiates. If I should die today, he will likely
 
succeed me. Clarke worries about our people. Tell her what will happen to them
 
when you become ''Heda'', Aden.
 
 
ADEN
 
If I become ''Heda'', I pledge my loyalty
 
to the 13<sup>th</sup> clan.
 
 
LEXA
 
Thank you. Now go join the
 
others.
 
 
(He bows
 
and then leaves.)
 
 
LEXA
 
See? Nothing to worry
 
about.
 
 
CLARKE
 
I’m sorry if I’m worried the
 
fate of my people lies in the hands of a child.
 
 
LEXA
 
Then you worry for
 
nothing. I’ve sent Indra to raise an army from the villages near Arkadia. Your
 
people are protected, as I vowed they would be.
 
 
(She turns
 
and heads to her throne but Clarke chases behind her.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
This is not just about my
 
people. You don’t stand a chance against Roan.
 
 
LEXA
 
You’ve never seen me
 
fight.
 
 
CLARKE
 
No. But I saw him kill three
 
men in the time it took the first one to hit the ground.
 
 
LEXA
 
If you’re right, today’s
 
the day my spirit will choose it’s successor and you need to accept that.
 
 
CLARKE
 
Like hell I do.
 
 
(Clarke
 
turns and storms out. Lexa sits in her throne.)

(COMMERCIALS)
 
 
---
 
 
(Open in the streets of Polis. Nia and Roan, both handcuffed, are led through
 
the streets.)
 
 
NIA
 
Focus, Roan. You’re here to practice. Remember, anticipate her reflexes. When
 
you feel overconfident, you forget that your enemy has strengths too.
 
 
ROAN
 
I don’t need your help.
 
 
NIA
 
You’re upset that I chose you.
 
 
ROAN
 
I’m not surprised.
 
 
NIA
 
When you kill Lexa, your banishment will be over. In the wake of your victory,
 
our people will be more powerful than ever. That will be your legacy and your
 
legend.
 
 
(Roan turns
 
on her.)
 
 
ROAN
 
Don’t pretend you do anything for me, Mother.
 
 
NIA
 
You’re right. Everything I do is for ''Azgeda''.
 
What’s good for ''Azgeda'' is good for
 
you. My sword.
 
 
(A guard
 
steps forward and puts the sheath in her hands while another undoes Roan’s
 
handcuffs. She turns and offers the sword to Roan.)
 
 
NIA
 
If you won’t fight for your mother, or your queen, fight for your clan.
 
 
(Roan takes
 
the sword out of the sheath.)
 
 
NIA
 
I want her head.
 
 
(She takes the sheath and steps away. Roan does some real over the top knife
 
tricks while Grounder children run disturbingly close by. He wheels around and
 
holds the knife to a figure with her hood up.)
 
 
ROAN
 
Is that death I hear stalking me?
 
 
(Clarke
 
lowers her hood. It’s all very cool.)
 
 
ROAN
 
Or just the Commander of Death?
 
 
CLARKE
 
We need to talk.
 
 
(Roan puts
 
down his sword.)
 
 
ROAN
 
We have nothing to talk about. I need to prepare.
 
 
CLARKE
 
I know you had nothing to do
 
with Mt. Weather. That’s why I didn’t tell Lexa you gave me the knife. This is
 
what your mother wanted all along.
 
 
ROAN
 
What do you want? Spit it out!
 
 
CLARKE
 
I want you to become the king.
 
I know you’ve thought of it. She was willing to let you die, willing to let you
 
be banished. I know you just want to go home.
 
 
ROAN
 
When I win today, I will.
 
 
CLARKE
 
For how long? How long until
 
your mother finds another reason to cast you out, to sacrifice you? No one can
 
cast a king out of his kingdom.
 
 
ROAN
 
I can’t do it. My people would never take me back.
 
 
(Clarke
 
turns to leave.)
 
 
ROAN
 
But I can help you do it.
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on Arkadia. It’s the funeral for Mt. Weather. Pike stands giving a
 
eulogy. In attendance, among redshirts, are Bellamy, Miller, Bryan, Abby, Kane,
 
Gillmer, Hannah, Harper, Monroe, and Lincoln.)
 
 
PIKE
 
All that’s certain is that we die. How we die is up to us. Who will speak for
 
Iris Jones?
 
 
(Miller
 
puts a hand on Bryan’s arm and squeezes. Bryan stands and steps to the front of
 
the room.)
 
 
BRYAN
 
Iris was strong. Good with a knife. She saved my life. I’m just sorry I
 
couldn’t do the same for her.
 
 
(He flicks
 
open a knife and sets it on a table full of knick knacks, memories of the dead.
 
He returns to his seat beside Miller, who comforts him, while Pike steps back
 
to the front.)
 
 
PIKE
 
We will miss Iris. May we meet again.
 
 
ALL
 
May we meet again.
 
 
PIKE
 
Who will speak for Gina Martin?
 
 
(Bellamy stands and goes to the front of the room, The Illiad in hand, while
 
Pike steps aside.)
 
 
BELLAMY
 
Gina was real. She always saw the light, even here. She deserved better. May we
 
meet again.
 
 
(He sets
 
The Illiad on the table but guards come through the doors and everyone starts
 
to murmur. The guards head to Pike.)
 
 
GUARD
 
Just came in. We saw a whole encampment, 300 strong just behind the tree ridge.
 
There’s a bunch of them. It’s Grounders. They’re coming.
 
 
(Pike walks
 
over to Abby and Kane.)
 
 
PIKE
 
Grounders are here, an army 300 strong camped less than a mile from here.
 
 
ABBY
 
We know.
 
 
PIKE
 
What?
 
 
KANE
 
Indra radioed.
 
 
PIKE
 
You gave a Grounder one of our radios?
 
 
(Up until
 
now, the conversation has been hushed but Pike is getting loud and everyone’s
 
starting to look. Lincoln is pacing in the back of the room.)
 
 
HANNAH
 
Sir, are we under attack?
 
 
(Hannah’s
 
such a freaking drama llama. Almost everyone in the room stands.)
 
 
KANE
 
No, we are not under attack. The Commander sent a peace keeping force to ensure
 
that we can defend against from the Ice Nation.
 
 
PIKE
 
Peace keeping force? Even you can’t be that naïve, Marcus!
 
 
ABBY
 
Watch your tone. You’re talking to the next Chancellor. We’re all grieving.
 
This has been hard on all of us, but we can’t let anger drive our policy.
 
 
PIKE
 
Anger is our policy!
 
 
(Pike jumps
 
up onto the stage.)
 
 
PIKE
 
Now if they’re here to defend us, as you say, then tell them to go home. We can
 
defend ourselves.
 
 
(Gillmer picks up a rock from the table of mementos. I’m sorry, but I would
 
have loved to see that eulogy. “Jenny will be missed. She really loved rocks.”)
 
 
GILLMER
 
You!
 
 
(He points at Lincoln.)
 
 
GILLMER
 
You don’t belong here.
 
 
(The crowd
 
murmurs until finally, Gillmer throws the rock. It hits Lincoln in the side of
 
the head and suddenly chaos. Bellamy runs at Lincoln as several in the crowd
 
run to attack him – Bellamy and the guard hold people back from Lincoln as he
 
wobbles, woozy from the hit. Fists are flying, it’s an all-out brawl. Kane is
 
holding two people a part. Finally, Pike sticks his fingers in his mouth and
 
whistles. Everything stops.)
 
 
PIKE
 
We do not attack our own! Fighting each other only makes us weak. The enemy is
 
not in this camp. The enemy is out there.
 
 
(Lincoln
 
looks like he’s barely hanging onto consciousness. Abby runs up and goes to put
 
her hands on his face but he slaps them away.)
 
 
ABBY
 
Lincoln, are you okay?
 
 
LINCOLN
 
I’m fine.
 
 
ABBY
 
Lincoln, you need to go to medical.
 
 
(Still
 
wobbly, he walks away. It’s fairly obvious he’s not headed to medical, even
 
before the jump cut that shows him walking shakily along the walls of Arkadia.
 
He drops to one knee and punches the wall repeatedly before stealing himself
 
and standing back up.)
 
 
LINCOLN
 
''Get knocked down, get back up again.''

(Open on Jasper wandering through the woods while drinking from a flask with
 
Monty trailing behind him.)
 
 
MONTY
 
What the hell are we doing here, Jasper?
 
 
JASPER
 
Visiting old friends.
 
 
(They turn
 
the corner and are standing in front of the dropship. Monty looks at Jasper,
 
concerned. Jasper holds up his flask to the dropship then takes several long
 
draughts.)
 
 
MONTY
 
I think you’ve had enough.
 
 
JASPER
 
You have no idea.
 
 
(He holds
 
up one finger to Monty before dropping his backpack and heading towards the
 
dropship.)
 
 
JASPER
 
Time to give some back.
 
 
(Monty starts to follow him, then heads back to the backpack. He unzips it and
 
pulls out two bottles, a knife in a sheath, and an urn. He looks at it, then
 
opens it. It contains ashes. Murphy reaches in and pulls out a human tooth. His
 
eyes widen as he realizes and he drops the tooth back in. He stands and turns,
 
the urn still open and in his hands.)
 
 
MONTY
 
Tell me this isn’t what I-
 
 
(Jasper is
 
stretched out on a hill, unconscious and clutching his flask. Monty closes the
 
urn and goes to sit by Jasper.)
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on the medbay. Abby is stitching the wound in Lincoln’s head while Pike
 
and Kane watch.)
 
 
LINCOLN
 
No. No charges.
 
 
KANE
 
Lincoln, we need to set an example.
 
 
LINCOLN
 
Yeah, we do.
 
 
PIKE
 
The man just lost his son, Marcus.
 
 
ABBY
 
Lincoln didn’t do that.
 
 
(Octavia comes
 
running in. I swear that girl never walks anywhere.)
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
What happened?
 
 
LINCOLN
 
I said no charges.
 
 
PIKE
 
Thank you.
 
 
(Pike
 
pushes past Octavia to walk away. He catches Nyko’s eye but keeps going. Kane
 
leaves too.)
 
 
ABBY
 
He’ll be fine.
 
 
(Abby turns
 
and leaves to head to another Grounder patient, after a reassuring touch to
 
Octavia’s arm. Octavia steps around Lincoln to look at the wound in his head
 
and gasps as she reaches out to gently touch him.)
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
Was it Farm Station?
 
 
LINCOLN
 
Doesn’t matter.
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
Indra’s army’s outside
 
the wall and Lexa lifted the kill order on you at the summit. Maybe she’ll take
 
us back. We can get out of here.
 
 
(She takes
 
his hand.)
 
 
LINCOLN
 
The only way they’re ever gonna see us as different from ''Azgeda'' is if I stay.
 
 
ABBY
 
Lincoln? You okay to translate? Nyko’s got his hands full.
 
 
(Lincoln
 
stands and kisses the top of Octavia’s head.)
 
 
LINCOLN
 
Octavia, it’ll pass.
 
 
(He turns
 
and heads to stand by Abby. He looks over his shoulder back at Octavia but
 
she’s gone.)
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on Polis, in Nia’s chambers. She’s eating, with Ontari serving. A door
 
opens and Clarke enters.)
 
 
GUARD
 
''Clarke of Skaikru. My Queen.''
 
 
(Clarke
 
goes to stand at the end of the table and Ontari leaves to stand along the
 
wall.)
 
 
NIA
 
To what do I owe the pleasure?
 
 
CLARKE
 
What if I changed my vote?
 
 
NIA
 
Now you’re thinking like a leader of your people.
 
 
(Clarke
 
walks around the table towards Nia.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
I would need some assurances
 
first.
 
 
NIA
 
Skaikru will be safe.
 
 
CLARKE
 
And me?
 
 
NIA
 
My quarrel is with Lexa.
 
 
(She slams
 
a knife she was eating with down into the table.)
 
 
NIA
 
Not you. Once she’s gone, I won’t need the power of Wanheda.
 
 
CLARKE
 
Okay.
 
 
NIA
 
Okay? You don’t want vengeance for the dead at Mt. Weather?
 
 
CLARKE
 
My priority is with the
 
living, not the dead.
 
 
(She steps
 
forward and pulls the knife from the table. ''We
 
bind ourselves in blood.''
 
 
(She cuts
 
herself in the middle of her palm. Why is this sort of thing always done on the
 
hand???)
 
 
NIA
 
I see you’ve learned our oath.
 
 
(Clarke
 
wipes the blade twice, once on each side, on the sleeve of her shirt, then
 
stabs it back into the table.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
Do you accept?
 
 
(Because
 
I’m gonna be real ticked if I did this to my hand for nothing. Nia stands and
 
pulls the knife from the table.)
 
 
NIA
 
''We bind ourselves in blood.''
 
 
(She holds the knife to her hand.)
 
 
ONTARI
 
''Wait!''
 
 
(Nia freezes and Ontari slams Clarke against the table, then sniffs the spot on
 
her sleeve where she’d wiped the blade.)
 
 
ONTARI
 
''Poison.''
 
 
NIA
 
Could’ve been allies, Clarke. Instead, I declare you and your people enemies of
 
''Azgeda''.
 
 
(She wipes
 
the blade off on a napkin.)
 
 
NIA
 
Ontari, hold out your hand.
 
 
(Ontari
 
does so and Nia cuts the blade into Ontari’s palm.)
 
 
NIA
 
I’m letting you live for now to send a message to Lexa.
 
 
(She holds
 
Ontari’s hand above Clarke’s face and squeezes it, dribbling Ontari’s black
 
blood down onto Clarke’s forehead.)
 
 
NIA
 
I have my own ''Natblida'', and she will
 
be the next commander.

(Open on Lexa’s throne room. Clarke stands in front of Titus, face covered in
 
Ontari’s now dried black blood. Titus reaches out and touches it while Lexa
 
looks on. Titus steps away towards Lexa.)
 
 
TITUS
 
A Commander from the Ice Nation. Now all of Nia’s provocations make sense, and
 
we played right into it. She knew you would accept her challenge.
 
 
(Clarke walks up on them.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
I’ve never seen blood that
 
color before.
 
 
LEXA
 
Goes back to the first
 
Commander. When a Nightblood child is found, they’re brought here to be
 
trained, or supposed to be.
 
 
TITUS
 
Your legacy is no longer secure. There is still time to choose a champion.
 
 
LEXA
 
You know I can’t do that.
 
 
(Lexa walks
 
past him.)
 
 
TITUS
 
''Heda''-
 
 
LEXA
 
Leave us.
 
 
(Titus
 
leaves.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
Titus is right. You’re giving
 
her exactly what she wants.
 
 
(Clarke
 
steps closer to Lexa and Lexa turns on her heels.)
 
 
LEXA
 
Only if I lose. I know
 
you’re just trying to help Clarke, but there’s nothing you can do here.
 
 
(She turns
 
and walks further away.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
I can’t just let Roan kill
 
you.
 
 
LEXA
 
If that is to be my fate,
 
you must. You’re driven to fix everything for everyone, but you can’t fix this.
 
I have to do this on my own and you have to let me.
 
 
CLARKE
 
I won’t just sit there and
 
watch you die.
 
 
(The doors
 
open and Titus steps back in.)
 
 
TITUS
 
''Heda''.
 
 
(Clarke
 
turns.)
 
 
TITUS
 
''It’s time''.
 
 
LEXA
 
Then this is goodbye…for now.
 
 
(Lexa steps
 
past Clarke and out the door with Titus.)

(Open on Arkadia in the mess hall. Pike and Bellamy are sitting at a table
 
together. This is the beginning of the end.)
 
 
PIKE
 
Let’s talk about Mt. Weather. I know you think it was your fault. That why you
 
resigned?
 
 
(Bellamy
 
nods, then they both take a shot.)
 
 
PIKE
 
You’re right. It was your fault. Mine too. Every life we honored at the
 
memorial was lost because we trusted a Grounder.
 
 
BELLAMY
 
I talked you into it. I knew her and I vouched for her.
 
 
PIKE
 
No, you don’t get to own this one alone.
 
 
(Someone
 
brings them new shots and takes the old cups.)
 
 
PIKE
 
I knew what they were capable of, but I let my guard down one day and 35 of my
 
people died.
 
 
(He holds
 
up his drink.)
 
 
PIKE
 
Never again.
 
 
(Bellamy holds
 
up his drink.)
 
 
BELLAMY
 
Never again.
 
 
(They both
 
drink.)
 
 
PIKE
 
Kane’s a good man, I know you’re close to him, but he doesn’t believe that
 
we’re fighting a war. He thinks Grounders can police Grounders. I mean, out
 
there in the woods, outside our home, with a peace keeping force?
 
 
BELLAMY
 
What would you do?
 
 
PIKE
 
What I wouldn’t do is wait for them to hit us. My scouts tell me that they’ve
 
got 300 soldiers and not a single gun between them. 10 highly motivated men
 
with automatic rifles is all it would take. I’ve got the men.
 
 
BELLAMY
 
You’re asking me to get you the guns.
 
 
(Pike
 
nods.)
 
 
BELLAMY
 
That’s treason.
 
 
PIKE
 
That’s survival. The Grounders out there will attack this camp, and our leaders
 
do nothing. Right now, we have the element of surprise. We wait, we die. If
 
they want to call it treason, I’m willing to suffer the consequences to save
 
our people. Are you?
 
 
(Bellamy
 
nods.)

(Open in the streets of Polis. A crowd has gathered to watch Lexa and Roan’s
 
fight. There’s shouting and music. Roan and Lexa stand facing a stage where
 
Titus stands and Nia sits. Titus holds up his hands and silence falls.)
 
 
TITUS
 
''In single combat there is but one rule.
 
Someone must die today. You may begin.''
 
 
(He sits.
 
We see Aden, presumably with the other Natblidas in the audience. Roan pulls a
 
sword from a sheath and looks to Nia who nods. Lexa hands someone her totally
 
pointless but very cool looking shoulder half cape thing. Clarke pushes her way
 
through the crowd, hood up, to come face to face with Lexa. She drops her hood.
 
Lexa is shocked to see her there.)
 
 
LEXA
 
I’m glad you came.
 
 
CLARKE
 
Me too.
 
 
(Lexa pulls
 
her sword from its sheath with a flourish and looks to Clarke. It’s all very
 
“did you see that?!” But Roan is advancing on Lexa from behind and Lexa, seeing
 
Clarke’s expression, turns and catches his sword with hers, then cuts him along
 
his back as he passes. Lexa strikes three times and Roan catches each of them
 
until their swords meet with Roan’s on top and Lexa pushing up from the bottom.
 
His strength forces her to her knees.)
 
 
ROAN
 
You’re done.
 
 
(She
 
reaches out with her left hand and grabs the blade and forces it up, catching
 
Roan in the chin with the hilt of her sword. Roan strikes and Lexa meets it,
 
she ducks the second swing, but he catches her and knees her in the back,
 
knocking her to the ground. She swings up at him on her hands and knees but he
 
smacks the sword out of her hand and then kicks it away. She slams her fists
 
into his knee, bringing him down, and then quickly stands to knee him in the
 
chin and snatches his sword. She runs and grabs the other one, and twirls them
 
like the Lextra she is. Roan looks around, panicked, before he socks a guard
 
standing nearby and takes his spear. Not to be out extra’d, he twirls the spear
 
too in an even more impressive display. They advance on each other and Roan
 
swings the sword at her head but Lexa ducks it. She swings and him, spinning
 
and attacking with both swords and succeeds in backing him up be catches every
 
blow with the spear. Suddenly, he catches his spear between both of her blades
 
and her jerks one out of her hand. She goes to swing the other but he knocks
 
that one out of her hand too. Titus rises, frantic. He kicks her square in the
 
chest and she flies before landing flat on her back. Titus sits back down,
 
hilariously defeated. Clarke looks like she’s going to piss herself. Roan
 
advances as Lexa lays flat on her back. Roan puts the spear to her neck before
 
he pulls back and jabs down for Lexa’s throat, but Lexa rolls out of the way
 
and the spear just hits the concrete. Lexa swings her legs around and catches
 
him in the knee, flipping him onto his back. They both scramble to their feet,
 
Lexa complete with a little cartwheel, and Roan swings at Lexa as she ducks. He
 
stabs forward and she catches it under her arm, and smacks his arm so he let’s
 
go. She turns the spear on him and catches him in the leg with the blade,
 
bringing him to his knees, and then hits his face with the butt of the spear.
 
She smacks him under the chin with the butt of the spear, throwing him onto his
 
back. She advances and holds the spear to his neck. Nia stands.)
 
 
NIA
 
''Get up! If you die, you don’t die a
 
prince, you die a coward!''
 
 
ROAN
 
Get it over with.
 
 
LEXA
 
''Blood must have blood.''
 
 
<nowiki> </nowiki>(She turns
 
and hurls the spear at Nia, pinning her to her throne. There is an instant
 
uproar. Roan rolls to look as she dies.)
 
 
LEXA
 
The queen is dead. Long
 
live the king.
 
 
(The crowd
 
cheers.)
 
 
CROWD
 
''Heda! Heda! Heda! Heda!''
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on Arkadia. It’s nighttime. Bellamy, Pike, Gillmer, Hannah, and several
 
redshirts head towards the gate. Pike gestures towards one of the guards and
 
they nod. As they get closer to the gates, Lincoln, Monroe, and Harper step out
 
in their way. Bellamy steps forward.)
 
 
BELLAMY
 
You need to step aside right now.
 
 
HARPER
 
What are the guns for?
 
 
BELLAMY
 
There’s an army out there. We need to hit them before they hit us.
 
 
LINCOLN
 
That army was sent to protect us.
 
 
(Pike and
 
the others step up closer behind Bellamy.)
 
 
PIKE
 
Do we have a problem?
 
 
BELLAMY
 
No. I have always done what is best for us. I need you to trust that I’m doing
 
that now. Monroe.
 
 
(Monroe
 
turns and walks away.)
 
 
BELLAMY
 
Harper.
 
 
HARPER
 
Sorry, Lincoln.
 
 
(She
 
leaves.)
 
 
PIKE
 
You too, Lincoln. You want to prove you’re one of us, let us pass.
 
 
LINCOLN
 
I’m not moving.
 
 
(Gillmer
 
pulls his gun on him.)
 
 
GILLMER
 
Get out of the way, Grounder.
 
 
(Lincoln
 
immediately disarms him with an elbow to the face and they begin to fight,
 
Lincoln pretty efficiently kicking his ass. Lincoln pulls a knife on Gillmer
 
and everybody in Murder Squad point their guns at him.)
 
 
BELLAMY
 
Put the guns down. Guns down!
 
 
PIKE
 
Do what he says now.
 
 
(Murder
 
Squad lower their weapons.)
 
 
HANNAH
 
So much for the good Grounder.
 
 
PIKE
 
Quiet, Hannah. Whose people are you defending here, Lincoln?
 
 
BELLAMY
 
Lincoln, put down the knife. No one has to get hurt here.
 
 
LINCOLN
 
Can’t let you start a war.
 
 
PIKE
 
We’re already at war.
 
 
BELLAMY
 
You can’t stop us.
 
 
(Alarms
 
blare.)
 
 
VOICE ON PA
 
All Arkadia security personnel, report to the main gate. All Arkadia security
 
personnel, report to the main gate now.
 
 
(Octavia
 
comes running up to Lincoln, as per usual. She rounds on Bellamy.)
 
 
OCTAVIA
 
What’s wrong with you?
 
 
(The guards
 
quickly arrive to disperse the Murder Squad, along with Kane and Abby.)
 
 
PIKE
 
Calm down, people. Farm Station, guns on the ground. On the ground!
 
 
(Pike puts
 
his gun on the ground as do the others.)
 
 
KANE
 
Lincoln, it’s alright. Let him go.
 
 
(Lincoln
 
releases Gillmer and shoves it away. Abby storms up to Pike.)
 
 
ABBY
 
What the hell do you think you’re doing?
 
 
PIKE
 
What you didn’t have the guts to.
 
 
(Kane turns
 
to Bellamy.)
 
 
KANE
 
Did you arm these people?
 
 
(Bellamy
 
stares him down and Kane turns and walks away.)
 
 
ABBY
 
Guards, take them to lockup now.
 
 
(The guards
 
move to lead Murder Squad away.)
 
 
ABBY
 
Everybody back to your quarters. It’s over.
 
 
PIKE
 
Nothing is over.
 
 
(Everyone
 
stops.)
 
 
PIKE
 
We are surrounded by warriors who want us dead.
 
 
KANE
 
That’s enough.
 
 
PIKE
 
No it isn’t. Not even close. Why don’t you show us all what you let the
 
Grounders do to you yesterday? Come on, Kane. I think that the people who are
 
about to vote for you have a right to know.
 
 
(Kane pulls
 
back his sleeve and holds up his arm.)
 
 
 
 
KANE
 
It’s the mark of the Commander’s coalition. It means we are the 13<sup>th</sup>
 
clan. It means we are in this fight together.
 
 
PIKE
 
No. It’s what farmers used to do to their livestock.
 
 
HANNAH
 
Right before the slaughterhouse!
 
 
GILLMER
 
Sir, you should be on the ballot tomorrow.
 
 
ABBY
 
That’s enough. Take him away.
 
 
(The guards
 
pull him away.)
 
 
BELLAMY
 
Pike! Pike!
 
 
CROWD
 
Pike! Pike! Pike! Pike!
 
 
(Murder
 
Squad is led away while Abby, Kane, Octavia, and Lincoln look on, horrified.)
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on the dropship. Jasper is laying alone, but there’s a fire nearby and
 
Monty’s sitting by it. Jasper comes to with a groan and climbs to his feet.)
 
 
MONTY
 
What the hell were you thinking?
 
 
JASPER
 
Home sweet home.
 
 
MONTY
 
Does Abby know you took these?
 
 
(He holds
 
up the ashes. Jasper takes a swig from his flask.)
 
 
JASPER
 
Since I stole them, probably not. It’s memorial day, alright?
 
 
(He snatches the urn from Monty and opens it.)
 
 
JASPER
 
Let’s scatter them with the others.
 
 
(Monty
 
climbs to his feet.)
 
 
MONTY
 
Finn’s ashes aren’t yours to scatter. What about Raven? Besides, if Abby still
 
has them, it means she’s saving them for Clarke. Who cares who it hurts? Yeah,
 
whatever Jasper wants. Screw the rest of us, right?
 
 
JASPER
 
No. No, screw Clarke. You are both mass murderers as far as I’m concerned. I
 
get why she did it and why Bellamy helped her, but you- Maya was your friend,
 
she was- How is it that you can wipe out an entire civilization, yet I’m the
 
one that can’t sleep at night? How-how can you just be fine?
 
 
(Jasper shoves Monty.)
 
 
MONTY
 
I’m not fine! Just because I’m not drinking myself into a stupor every night
 
doesn’t mean I’m not screwed up. But we had no other choice.
 
 
(Jasper
 
laughs maniacally and walks away, holding up the ashes.)
 
 
JASPER
 
You hear that, Finn? He thinks he’s innocent. None of us is innocent.
 
 
MONTY
 
Float you!
 
 
(Monty
 
advances on him.)
 
 
MONTY
 
For three months I’ve watched you torture yourself and everyone around you –
 
mostly me – but I’m done being your punching bag. Either you pull yourself
 
together and you get on with your life or you fall a part alone.
 
 
JASPER
 
Are you done?
 
 
MONTY
 
I miss my best friend.
 
 
JASPER
 
He died that day, too.
 
 
(Monty
 
turns and walks away.)
 
 
JASPER
 
You’re leaving?
 
 
(Jasper
 
heads after him and waves the urn at him.)
 
 
JASPER
 
See you on the other side!
 
 
(He trips and hits the ground. Finn’s ashes poof out of the urn, and Jasper
 
crawls up onto his hands and knees. He half tries to push them back into the urn
 
and begins to hyperventilate. He sobs and holds his hands to his face.)
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on Polis. Clarke stands, looking out her bedroom window in a very extra
 
nightgown. There’s a knock at the door and Clarke answers it to see Lexa in an
 
even more extra nightgown.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
Is this “I told you so”?
 
 
LEXA
 
No, this is “thank you”.
 
 
CLARKE
 
Come in.
 
 
(Lexa steps
 
over the threshold and Clarke takes Lexa’s bandaged hand.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
Sit down. Let me change that
 
for you.
 
 
(Clarke closes
 
the door as Lexa sits. Clarke comes and sits besie her with a towel.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
That girl that was with Nia,
 
Ontari, what will happen to her?
 
 
(She starts
 
to unwind Lexa’s bandage.)
 
 
LEXA
 
She won’t be back until
 
the conclave after my death.
 
 
CLARKE
 
Do you ever talk about
 
anything other than your death?
 
 
(Lexa
 
smiles. Clarke tears off a new bandage and begins to rewrap Lexa’s hand.)
 
 
LEXA
 
Thank you for backing me.
 
 
CLARKE
 
I was just doing what was
 
right for my people. Your Ambassadors betrayed you. How do you move forward?
 
 
LEXA
 
They were doing what they
 
believed was right for their people, too.
 
 
(Clarke
 
stands.)
 
 
CLARKE
 
''Good night, Commander.''
 
 
LEXA
 
Good night, Ambassador.
 
 
(She turns
 
and walks out the door.)
 
 
---
 
 
(Open on Arkadia, the next day. Kane, flanked by two guards, goes to the
 
prison, where the entire Murder Squad is. One of the guards enters the keycode.
 
Kane opens the door and enters. Pike stands.)
 
 
KANE
 
Congratulations, Mr. Chancellor.
 
 
PIKE
 
Where’s Abby?
 
 
KANE
 
Wishes she could be here.
 
 
(He holds
 
out the Chancellor pin. Pike takes it.)
 
 
KANE
 
The vote was close. Our people are now your responsibility, Charles. I hope you
 
take that seriously.
 
 
(I
 
genuinely have no idea whether he says “wasn’t” or “was” here. Closed captioning
 
on The CW website says “wasn’t” but it sounds more like “was” to me. It’s not
 
super clear either way.)
 
 
PIKE
 
Thank you, Marcus. I certainly intend to.
 
 
(He pins
 
the pin to his shirt.)
 
 
PIKE
 
For my first official action as Chancellor, I pardon myself and the others. For
 
my second official action, I reject the brand that made us the 13<sup>th</sup>
 
clan. For my third, let’s finish what we started.
 
 
(Murder
 
Squad heads out the door but Kane steps in front of Bellamy before he can
 
leave.)
 
 
KANE
 
It’s not too late to choose the right side.
 
 
BELLAMY
 
I already have.
 
 
(Bellamy
 
steps past him and heads out the door, leaving Kane looking Very Concerned in
 
the cell alone.)

Sp.Dialogue
Scene 1 - Polis
[Open on Polis, Lexa’s throne room. Lexa is in her throne, Titus stands beside her. The 13 ambassadors, featuring Clarke and Roan, sit in attendance.]
Lexa Ambassadors of the Coalition, today we honor our covenant. The clan that stands against one of us stands against us all.
Titus Bring in the accused.
[Titus waves and the doors open and Queen Nia, flanked by two guards, enters. They walk forward to stand in front of Lexa and push Nia to her knees.]
Titus Queen Nia of Azgeda has confessed to the destruction of Mt. Weather, resulting in the death of 49 members of Skaikru. Wanheda, what say you?
Clarke Skaikru demands justice.
Nia Ice Nation does not answer to this girl.
Titus Silence. The punishment for your crime is death. Do you have anything to say in your defense?
Nia I need no defense. She does. Today is judgement day. I call for a vote of no confidence.
Titus Take this queen to meet her fate.
[Two guards step towards her, but one of the Ambassadors stands.]
Ambassador #1 Not so fast. Commander no longer.
[More and more Ambassadors stand.]
Ambassador #2 Commander no longer.
Ambassador #3 Commander no longer.
Titus Take them away too!
[The guards move to follow Titus’ orders.]
Lexa Wait.
Titus Lexa, please, execute these traitors-
[Lexa does a hand symbol.]
Lexa Let her make her move.
Ambassador #4 Commander no longer.
Ambassador #5 Commander no longer.
Ambassador #6 Commander no longer.
Ambassador #7 Commander no longer.
Ambassador #8 Commander no longer.
Clarke Commander, what is this?
Lexa This is a coup.
[Nia starts to stand. Clarke is frantic, Lexa is ever-collected.]
Nia This is the law, her law. A unanimous vote of the ambassadors or death are all that can remove a commander from power.
Clarke It’s not unanimous.
Nia We don’t recognize the legitimacy of Skaikru.
[Titus is furious and walks down to meet Nia.]
Titus We do. Yesterday, Skaikru took the brand. They are the 13th clan. This vote of no confidence fails. All these coup plotters will suffer the exact same fate as the Ice Queen.
Nia She won’t take our heads because she knows our armies will retaliate. None of us here want war.
Lexa We both know what you want, Nia.
[She stands and slowly goes down to meet Nia.]
Lexa If you think me unfit to command, issue the challenge and let’s get on it with.
Nia Very well. You are challenged.
Lexa And I accept your challenge.
Titus So be it. Single combat. Warrior against warrior to the death. Queen Nia of Azgeda, who do you choose to be your champion?
Nia My son Roan, Prince of Azgeda.
[Roan looks up, blind-sided and none too pleased. Nia smiles blandly at him. Clarke is instantly terrified.]
Titus Heda, who will fight for you?
[Lexa turns and returns to her throne.]
Lexa I’m the Commander. No one fights for me.
Scene 2 - Arkadia
[Open on Arkadia, the Chancellor’s office. Kane, Abby, Pike and others are standing around the table.]
Kane Best we can tell, Mt. Weather was destroyed by an internal self-destruct mechanism. It worked as designed. 49 of our citizens were lost.
Pike So when do we strike back?
Abby We don’t. The Ice Nation took credit for the attack and the Commander will bring them to justice.
Pike So, now we’re trusting Grounders to punish Grounders? I’m sorry, Madam Chancellor, but I lost more than half of my remaining people yesterday and four times that many since we landed. Now, in my experience, Grounders understand one thing – strength. It’s simple. We need to hit them now. We need to hit them hard. Leave no survivors.
Kane There’s nothing simple about this. This attack by the Ice Nation was against Lexa, not us.
Pike Are you saying this isn’t our fight?
Kane I’m saying we were collateral damage in someone else’s war.
Pike But it’s not someone else’s war anymore. Look, if we don’t defend ourselves, they will take what we have. That’s what they do. Mark my words. The Grounders are coming for us.
Abby We’ll take it under advisement. Meeting adjourned.
[Pike, furious, turns to leave and opens the door to find Bellamy patiently waiting. He walks past him as do the other red shirts. Kane sits.]
Abby After the election tomorrow, he’s your problem.
[Abby leaves and Bellamy enters.]
Bellamy Sir?
Kane Why aren’t you at your post?
[Bellamy puts his guard jacket on the table.]
Kane Don’t do this.
Bellamy 49 of the people I swore to protect died yesterday because I left.
Kane That’s not your fault, Bellamy. Place the blame where it belongs, on the Ice Nation.
Bellamy The Ice Nation didn’t tell Gina to stay there. That was me.
[Kane stands and touches his shoulder.]
Kane Given the information you had at the time, you made a reasonable choice. You were trying to save lives.
Bellamy But I didn’t.
[He turns and leaves.]
[Open on the yard of Arkadia. Octavia is drinking water from a bucket. Jasper, wearing a backpack, is storming away while Monty chases after him.]
Monty Jasper! Jasper!
Jasper Get away from me!
[Octavia looks over, sets down the bucket, and runs over to them. She has no chill.]
Octavia Hey! Jasper, what’s wrong?
Monty He’s not going the memorial.
Jasper It’s a little late for a Mt. Weather memorial, don’t you think?
[An alarm chimes.]
Voice on PA All Arkadia security personnel, report to the main gate.
Octavia What now?
Voice on PA All Arkadia security personnel, report to the main gate.
[Monty, Jasper, and Octavia walk towards the gate to see Nyko and other miscellaneous Grounders just past the gate, surrounded by guards.]
Octavia Nyko.
[She heads towards them and Monty follows. Jasper takes the opportunity to slip away which Monty notices too late. The Grounders are being roughed up by the guard and Octavia runs up.]
Nyko Leave them alone. They’re sick!
Octavia Hey, hey, hey. That’s enough. Stop it!
[Monty hesitates, looking at the conflict, but turns and runs after Jasper.]
Octavia The Chancellor told Nyko that we would help.
Guard You’re one of them. You take them in.
[Octavia turns and puts one of the Grounders arms around her neck.]
Octavia I got him, come on.
[The whole party heads towards Arkadia.]
Nyko I heard about Mt. Weather. I’m very sorry.
[Cut to Jasper cutting open a portion of the gate with bolt cutters. Monty runs up on him.]
Monty Jasper, camp’s in lockdown, what are you doing?
Jasper Go to your memorial, Monty.
Monty Maybe I will.
Jasper Maybe you should.
Monty Fine.
[Monty watches as Jasper cuts open the panel and steps through. He hesitates, then follows him.]
Scene 3 - Polis
[Open on Polis, Lexa’s throne room. She is sitting in her throne, surrounded by the Natblidas. Clarke enters and stands next to Titus.]
Lexa What are the three pillars of being a Commander?
Natblida #1 Wisdom.
Natblida #2 Compassion.
Natblida #3 And strength.
Clarke Talk her out of it yet?
Titus No, but maybe you can.
Clarke I don’t understand. The queen’s not fighting, why should she?
Titus The queen’s strength is not in doubt. Thanks to you, Heda’s is.
Lexa Train hard and remember, you are each worthy of your Nightblood.
Titus Nightbloods!
[Titus claps and they all rise.]
Titus Follow me.
[The Natblidas follow him out.]
Lexa Aden, stay.
[Aden hangs back and stands with Lexa. Clarke steps forward to Lexa.]
Lexa Clarke, this is Aden. Aden is the most promising of my novitiates. If I should die today, he will likely succeed me. Clarke worries about our people. Tell her what will happen to them when you become Heda, Aden.
Aden If I become Heda, I pledge my loyalty to the 13th clan.
Lexa Thank you. Now go join the others.
[He bows and then leaves.]
Lexa See? Nothing to worry about.
Clarke I’m sorry if I’m worried the fate of my people lies in the hands of a child.
Lexa Then you worry for nothing. I’ve sent Indra to raise an army from the villages near Arkadia. Your people are protected, as I vowed they would be.
[She turns and heads to her throne but Clarke chases behind her.]
Clarke This is not just about my people. You don’t stand a chance against Roan.
Lexa You’ve never seen me fight.
Clarke No. But I saw him kill three men in the time it took the first one to hit the ground.
Lexa If you’re right, today’s the day my spirit will choose it’s successor and you need to accept that.
Clarke Like hell I do.
[Clarke turns and storms out. Lexa sits in her throne.]
[Open in the streets of Polis. Nia and Roan, both handcuffed, are led through the streets.]
Nia Focus, Roan. You’re here to practice. Remember, anticipate her reflexes. When you feel overconfident, you forget that your enemy has strengths too.
Roan I don’t need your help.
Nia You’re upset that I chose you.
Roan I’m not surprised.
Nia When you kill Lexa, your banishment will be over. In the wake of your victory, our people will be more powerful than ever. That will be your legacy and your legend.
[Roan turns on her.]
Roan Don’t pretend you do anything for me, Mother.
Nia You’re right. Everything I do is for Azgeda. What’s good for Azgeda is good for you. My sword.
[A guard steps forward and puts the sheath in her hands while another undoes Roan’s handcuffs. She turns and offers the sword to Roan.]
Nia If you won’t fight for your mother, or your queen, fight for your clan.
[Roan takes the sword out of the sheath.]
Nia I want her head.
[She takes the sheath and steps away. Roan does some real over the top knife tricks. He wheels around and holds the knife to a figure with her hood up.]
Roan Is that death I hear stalking me?
[Clarke lowers her hood.]
Roan Or just the Commander of Death?
Clarke We need to talk.
[Roan puts down his sword.]
Roan We have nothing to talk about. I need to prepare.
Clarke I know you had nothing to do with Mt. Weather. That’s why I didn’t tell Lexa you gave me the knife. This is what your mother wanted all along.
Roan What do you want? Spit it out!
Clarke I want you to become the king. I know you’ve thought of it. She was willing to let you die, willing to let you be banished. I know you just want to go home.
Roan When I win today, I will.
Clarke For how long? How long until your mother finds another reason to cast you out, to sacrifice you? No one can cast a king out of his kingdom.
Roan I can’t do it. My people would never take me back.
[Clarke turns to leave.]
Roan But I can help you do it.
Scene 4 - Arkadia
[Open on Arkadia. It’s the funeral for Mt. Weather. Pike stands giving a eulogy. In attendance, among redshirts, are Bellamy, Miller, Bryan, Abby, Kane, Gillmer, Hannah, Harper, Monroe, and Lincoln.]
Pike All that’s certain is that we die. How we die is up to us. Who will speak for Iris Jones?
[Miller puts a hand on Bryan’s arm and squeezes. Bryan stands and steps to the front of the room.]
Bryan Iris was strong. Good with a knife. She saved my life. I’m just sorry I couldn’t do the same for her.
[He flicks open a knife and sets it on a table full of knick knacks, memories of the dead. He returns to his seat beside Miller, who comforts him, while Pike steps back to the front.]
Pike We will miss Iris. May we meet again.
All May we meet again.
Pike Who will speak for Gina Martin?
[Bellamy stands and goes to the front of the room, The Illiad in hand, while Pike steps aside.]
Bellamy Gina was real. She always saw the light, even here. She deserved better. May we meet again.
[He sets The Illiad on the table but guards come through the doors and everyone starts to murmur. The guards head to Pike.]
Guard Just came in. We saw a whole encampment, 300 strong just behind the tree ridge. There’s a bunch of them. It’s Grounders. They’re coming.
[Pike walks over to Abby and Kane.]
Pike Grounders are here, an army 300 strong camped less than a mile from here.
Abby We know.
Pike What?
Kane Indra radioed.
Pike You gave a Grounder one of our radios?
[Up until now, the conversation has been hushed but Pike is getting loud and everyone’s starting to look. Lincoln is pacing in the back of the room.]
Hannah Sir, are we under attack?
[Almost everyone in the room stands.]
Kane No, we are not under attack. The Commander sent a peace keeping force to ensure that we can defend against any further attacks from the Ice Nation.
Pike Peace keeping force? Even you can’t be that naïve, Marcus!
Abby Watch your tone. You’re talking to the next Chancellor. We’re all grieving. This has been hard on all of us, but we can’t let anger drive our policy.
Pike Anger is our policy!
[Pike jumps up onto the stage.]
Pike Now if they’re here to defend us, as you say, then tell them to go home. We can defend ourselves.
[Gillmer picks up a rock from the table of mementos.]
Gillmer You!
[He points at Lincoln.]
Gillmer You don’t belong here.
[The crowd murmurs until finally, Gillmer throws the rock. It hits Lincoln in the side of the head and suddenly chaos. Bellamy runs at Lincoln as several in the crowd run to attack him – Bellamy and the guard hold people back from Lincoln as he wobbles, woozy from the hit. Fists are flying, it’s an all-out brawl. Kane is holding two people a part. Finally, Pike sticks his fingers in his mouth and whistles. Everything stops.]
Pike We do not attack our own! Fighting each other only makes us weak. The enemy is not in this camp. The enemy is out there.
[Lincoln looks like he’s barely hanging onto consciousness. Abby runs up and goes to put her hands on his face but he slaps them away.]
Abby Lincoln, are you okay?
Lincoln I’m fine.
Abby Lincoln, you need to go to medical.
[Still wobbly, he walks away. It’s fairly obvious he’s not headed to medical, even before the jump cut that shows him walking shakily along the walls of Arkadia. He drops to one knee and punches the wall repeatedly before stealing himself and standing back up.]
Lincoln Get knocked down, get back up again.
Scene 5 - The Dropship
[Open on Jasper wandering through the woods while drinking from a flask with Monty trailing behind him.]
Monty What the hell are we doing here, Jasper?
Jasper Visiting old friends.
[They turn the corner and are standing in front of the dropship. Monty looks at Jasper, concerned. Jasper holds up his flask to the dropship then takes several long draughts.]
Monty I think you’ve had enough.
Jasper You have no idea.
[He holds up one finger to Monty before dropping his backpack and heading towards the dropship.]
Jasper Time to give some back.
[Monty starts to follow him, then heads back to the backpack. He unzips it and pulls out two bottles, a knife in a sheath, and an urn. He looks at it, then opens it. It contains ashes. Murphy reaches in and pulls out a human tooth. His eyes widen as he realizes and he drops the tooth back in. He stands and turns, the urn still open and in his hands.]
Monty Tell me this isn’t what I-
[Jasper is stretched out on a hill, unconscious and clutching his flask. Monty closes the urn and goes to sit by Jasper.]
Scene 6 - Arkadia
[Open on the medbay. Abby is stitching the wound in Lincoln’s head while Pike and Kane watch.]
Lincoln No. No charges.
Kane Lincoln, we need to set an example.
Lincoln Yeah, we do.
Pike The man just lost his son, Marcus.
Abby Lincoln didn’t do that.
[Octavia comes running in.]
Octavia What happened?
Lincoln I said no charges.
Pike Thank you.
[Pike pushes past Octavia to walk away. He catches Nyko’s eye but keeps going. Kane leaves too.]
Abby He’ll be fine.
[Abby turns and leaves to head to another Grounder patient, after a reassuring touch to Octavia’s arm. Octavia steps around Lincoln to look at the wound in his head and gasps as she reaches out to gently touch him.]
Octavia Was it Farm Station?
Lincoln Doesn’t matter.
Octavia Indra’s army’s outside the wall and Lexa lifted the kill order on you at the summit. Maybe she’ll take us back. We can get out of here.
[She takes his hand.]
Lincoln The only way they’re ever gonna see us as different from Azgeda is if I stay.
Abby Lincoln? You okay to translate? Nyko’s got his hands full.
[Lincoln stands and kisses the top of Octavia’s head.]
Lincoln Octavia, it’ll pass.
[He turns and heads to stand by Abby. He looks over his shoulder back at Octavia but she’s gone.]
Scene 7 - Polis
[Open on Polis, in Nia’s chambers. She’s eating, with Ontari serving. A door opens and Clarke enters.]
GUARD Clarke of Skaikru. My Queen.
[Clarke goes to stand at the end of the table and Ontari leaves to stand along the wall.]
Nia To what do I owe the pleasure?
Clarke What if I changed my vote?
Nia Now you’re thinking like a leader of your people.
[Clarke walks around the table towards Nia.]
Clarke I would need some assurances first.
Nia Skaikru will be safe.
Clarke And me?
Nia My quarrel is with Lexa.
[She slams a knife she was eating with down into the table.]
Nia Not you. Once she’s gone, I won’t need the power of Wanheda.
Clarke Okay.
Nia Okay? You don’t want vengeance for the dead at Mt. Weather?
Clarke My priority is with the living, not the dead.
[She steps forward and pulls the knife from the table. We bind ourselves in blood. She cuts herself in the middle of her palm.]
Nia I see you’ve learned our oath.
[Clarke wipes the blade twice, once on each side, on the sleeve of her shirt, then stabs it back into the table.]
Clarke Do you accept?
[Nia stands and pulls the knife from the table.]
Nia We bind ourselves in blood.
[She holds the knife to her hand.]
Ontari Wait!
[Nia freezes and Ontari slams Clarke against the table, then sniffs the spot on her sleeve where she’d wiped the blade.]
Ontari Poison.
Nia Could’ve been allies, Clarke. Instead, I declare you and your people enemies of Azgeda.
[She wipes the blade off on a napkin.]
Nia Ontari, hold out your hand.
[Ontari does so and Nia cuts the blade into Ontari’s palm.]
Nia I’m letting you live for now to send a message to Lexa.
[She holds Ontari’s hand above Clarke’s face and squeezes it, dribbling Ontari’s black blood down onto Clarke’s forehead.]
Nia I have my own Natblida, and she will be the next commander.
[Open on Lexa’s throne room. Clarke stands in front of Titus, face covered in Ontari’s now dried black blood. Titus reaches out and touches it while Lexa looks on. Titus steps away towards Lexa.]
Titus A Commander from the Ice Nation. Now all of Nia’s provocations make sense, and we played right into it. She knew you would accept her challenge.
[Clarke walks up on them.]
Clarke I’ve never seen blood that color before.
Lexa Goes back to the first Commander. When a Nightblood child is found, they’re brought here to be trained, or supposed to be.
Titus Your legacy is no longer secure. There is still time to choose a champion.
Lexa You know I can’t do that.
[Lexa walks past him.]
Titus Heda-
Lexa Leave us.
[Titus leaves.]
Clarke Titus is right. You’re giving her exactly what she wants.
[Clarke steps closer to Lexa and Lexa turns on her heels.]
Lexa Only if I lose. I know you’re just trying to help Clarke, but there’s nothing you can do here.
[She turns and walks further away.]
Clarke I can’t just let Roan kill you.
Lexa If that is to be my fate, you must. You’re driven to fix everything for everyone, but you can’t fix this. I have to do this on my own and you have to let me.
Clarke I won’t just sit there and watch you die.
[The doors open and Titus steps back in.]
Titus Heda.
[Clarke turns.]
Titus It’s time.
Lexa Then this is goodbye…for now.
[Lexa steps past Clarke and out the door with Titus.]
Scene 8 - Arkadia
[Open on Arkadia in the mess hall. Pike and Bellamy are sitting at a table together.]
Pike Let’s talk about Mt. Weather. I know you think it was your fault. That why you resigned?
[Bellamy nods, then they both take a shot.]
Pike You’re right. It was your fault. Mine too. Every life we honored at the memorial was lost because we trusted a Grounder.
Bellamy I talked you into it. I knew her and I vouched for her.
Pike No, you don’t get to own this one alone.
[Someone brings them new shots and takes the old cups.]
Pike I knew what they were capable of, but I let my guard down one day and 35 of my people died.
[He holds up his drink.]
Pike Never again.
[Bellamy holds up his drink.]
Bellamy Never again.
[They both drink.]
Pike Kane’s a good man, I know you’re close to him, but he doesn’t believe that we’re fighting a war. He thinks Grounders can police Grounders. I mean, out there in the woods, outside our home, with a peace keeping force?
Bellamy What would you do?
Pike What I wouldn’t do is wait for them to hit us. My scouts tell me that they’ve got 300 soldiers and not a single gun between them. 10 highly motivated men with automatic rifles is all it would take. I’ve got the men.
Bellamy You’re asking me to get you the guns.
[Pike nods.]
Bellamy That’s treason.
Pike That’s survival. The Grounders out there will attack this camp, and our leaders do nothing. Right now, we have the element of surprise. We wait, we die. If they want to call it treason, I’m willing to suffer the consequences to save our people. Are you?
[Bellamy nods.]
Scene 9 - Polis
[Open in the streets of Polis. A crowd has gathered to watch Lexa and Roan’s fight. There’s shouting and music. Roan and Lexa stand facing a stage where Titus stands and Nia sits. Titus holds up his hands and silence falls.]
Titus In single combat there is but one rule. Someone must die today. You may begin.
[He sits. We see Aden, presumably with the other Natblidas in the audience. Roan pulls a sword from a sheath and looks to Nia who nods. Clarke pushes her way through the crowd, hood up, to come face to face with Lexa. She drops her hood. Lexa is shocked to see her there.]
Lexa I’m glad you came.
Clarke Me too.
[Lexa pulls her sword from its sheath with a flourish and looks to Clarke. But Roan is advancing on Lexa from behind and Lexa, seeing Clarke’s expression, turns and catches his sword with hers, then cuts him along his back as he passes. Lexa strikes three times and Roan catches each of them until their swords meet with Roan’s on top and Lexa pushing up from the bottom. His strength forces her to her knees.]
Roan You’re done.
[She reaches out with her left hand and grabs the blade and forces it up, catching Roan in the chin with the hilt of her sword. Roan strikes and Lexa meets it, she ducks the second swing, but he catches her and knees her in the back, knocking her to the ground. She swings up at him on her hands and knees but he smacks the sword out of her hand and then kicks it away. She slams her fists into his knee, bringing him down, and then quickly stands to knee him in the chin and snatches his sword. She runs and grabs the other one, and twirls them like the Lextra she is. Roan looks around, panicked, before he socks a guard standing nearby and takes his spear. Not to be out extra’d, he twirls the spear too in an even more impressive display. They advance on each other and Roan swings the sword at her head but Lexa ducks it. She swings and him, spinning and attacking with both swords and succeeds in backing him up be catches every blow with the spear. Suddenly, he catches his spear between both of her blades and her jerks one out of her hand. She goes to swing the other but he knocks that one out of her hand too. Titus rises, frantic. He kicks her square in the chest and she flies before landing flat on her back. Titus sits back down, hilariously defeated. Clarke looks like she’s going to piss herself. Roan advances as Lexa lays flat on her back. Roan puts the spear to her neck before he pulls back and jabs down for Lexa’s throat, but Lexa rolls out of the way and the spear just hits the concrete. Lexa swings her legs around and catches him in the knee, flipping him onto his back. They both scramble to their feet, Lexa complete with a little cartwheel, and Roan swings at Lexa as she ducks. He stabs forward and she catches it under her arm, and smacks his arm so he let’s go. She turns the spear on him and catches him in the leg with the blade, bringing him to his knees, and then hits his face with the butt of the spear. She smacks him under the chin with the butt of the spear, throwing him onto his back. She advances and holds the spear to his neck. Nia stands.]
Nia Get up! If you die, you don’t die a prince, you die a coward!
Roan Get it over with.
Lexa Blood must have blood.
[She turns and hurls the spear at Nia, pinning her to her throne. There is an instant uproar.]
Lexa The queen is dead. Long live the king.
[The crowd cheers.]
Crowd Heda! Heda! Heda! Heda!
Scene 10 - Arkadia
[Open on Arkadia. It’s nighttime. Bellamy, Pike, Gillmer, Hannah, and several redshirts head towards the gate. Pike gestures towards one of the guards and they nod. As they get closer to the gates, Lincoln, Monroe, and Harper step out in their way. Bellamy steps forward.]
Bellamy You need to step aside right now.
Harper What are the guns for?
Bellamy There’s an army out there. We need to hit them before they hit us.
Lincoln That army was sent to protect us.
[Pike and the others step up closer behind Bellamy.]
Pike Do we have a problem?
Bellamy No. I have always done what is best for us. I need you to trust that I’m doing that now. Monroe.
[Monroe turns and walks away.]
Bellamy Harper.
Harper Sorry, Lincoln.
[She leaves.]
Pike You too, Lincoln. You want to prove you’re one of us, let us pass.
Lincoln I’m not moving.
[Gillmer pulls his gun on him.]
Gillmer Get out of the way, Grounder.
[Lincoln immediately disarms him with an elbow to the face and they begin to fight, Lincoln pretty efficiently kicking his ass. Lincoln pulls a knife on Gillmer and everybody point their guns at him.]
Bellamy Put the guns down. Guns down!
Pike Do what he says now.
[Everyone lower their weapons.]
Hannah So much for the good Grounder.
Pike Quiet, Hannah. Whose people are you defending here, Lincoln?
Bellamy Lincoln, put down the knife. No one has to get hurt here.
Lincoln Can’t let you start a war.
Pike We’re already at war.
Bellamy You can’t stop us.
[Alarms blare.]
Voice on PA All Arkadia security personnel, report to the main gate. All Arkadia security personnel, report to the main gate now.
[Octavia comes running up to Lincoln. She rounds on Bellamy.]
Octavia What’s wrong with you?
[The guards quickly arrive to disperse the Murder Squad, along with Kane and Abby.]
Pike Calm down, people. Farm Station, guns on the ground. On the ground!
[Pike puts his gun on the ground as do the others.]
Kane Lincoln, it’s alright. Let him go.
[Lincoln releases Gillmer and shoves it away. Abby storms up to Pike.]
Abby What the hell do you think you’re doing?
Pike What you didn’t have the guts to.
[Kane turns to Bellamy.]
Kane Did you arm these people?
[Bellamy stares him down and Kane turns and walks away.]
Abby Guards, take them to lockup now.
[The guards move to lead Pike's regime away.]
Abby Everybody back to your quarters. It’s over.
Pike Nothing is over.
[Everyone stops.]
Pike We are surrounded by warriors who want us dead.
Kane That’s enough.
Pike No it isn’t. Not even close. Why don’t you show us all what you let the Grounders do to you yesterday? Come on, Kane. I think that the people who are about to vote for you have a right to know.
[Kane pulls back his sleeve and holds up his arm.]
Kane It’s the mark of the Commander’s coalition. It means we are the 13th clan. It means we are in this fight together.
Pike No. It’s what farmers used to do to their livestock.
Hannah Right before the slaughterhouse!
Gillmer Sir, you should be on the ballot tomorrow.
Abby That’s enough. Take him away.
[The guards pull him away.]
Bellamy Pike! Pike!
Crowd Pike! Pike! Pike! Pike!
[Pike, Hannah, Bellamy and the others are led away while Abby, Kane, Octavia, and Lincoln look on, horrified.]
Scene 11 - The Dropship
[Open on the dropship. Jasper is laying alone, but there’s a fire nearby and Monty’s sitting by it. Jasper comes to with a groan and climbs to his feet.]
Monty What the hell were you thinking?
Jasper Home sweet home.
Monty Does Abby know you took these?
[He holds up the ashes. Jasper takes a swig from his flask.]
Jasper Since I stole them, probably not. It’s memorial day, alright?
[He snatches the urn from Monty and opens it.]
Jasper Let’s scatter them with the others.
[Monty climbs to his feet.]
Monty Finn’s ashes aren’t yours to scatter. What about Raven? Besides, if Abby still has them, it means she’s saving them for Clarke. Who cares who it hurts? Yeah, whatever Jasper wants. Screw the rest of us, right?
Jasper No. No, screw Clarke. You are both mass murderers as far as I’m concerned. I get why she did it and why Bellamy helped her, but you- Maya was your friend, she was- How is it that you can wipe out an entire civilization, yet I’m the one that can’t sleep at night? How-how can you just be fine?
[Jasper shoves Monty.]
Monty I’m not fine! Just because I’m not drinking myself into a stupor every night doesn’t mean I’m not screwed up. But we had no other choice.
[Jasper laughs maniacally and walks away, holding up the ashes.]
Jasper You hear that, Finn? He thinks he’s innocent. None of us is innocent.
Monty Float you!
[Monty advances on him.]
Monty For three months I’ve watched you torture yourself and everyone around you – mostly me – but I’m done being your punching bag. Either you pull yourself together and you get on with your life or you fall a part alone.
Jasper Are you done?
Monty I miss my best friend.
Jasper He died that day, too.
[Monty turns and walks away.]
Jasper You’re leaving?
[Jasper heads after him and waves the urn at him.]
Jasper See you on the other side!
[He trips and hits the ground. Finn’s ashes poof out of the urn, and Jasper crawls up onto his hands and knees. He half tries to push them back into the urn and begins to hyperventilate. He sobs and holds his hands to his face.]
Scene 12 - Polis
[Open on Polis. Clarke stands, looking out her bedroom window. There’s a knock at the door and Clarke answers it to see Lexa.]
Clarke Is this “I told you so”?
Lexa No, this is “thank you”.
Clarke Come in.
[Lexa steps over the threshold and Clarke takes Lexa’s bandaged hand.]
Clarke Sit down. Let me change that for you.
[Clarke closes the door as Lexa sits. Clarke comes and sits beside her with a towel.]
Clarke That girl that was with Nia, Ontari, what will happen to her?
[She starts to unwind Lexa’s bandage.]
Lexa She won’t be back until the conclave after my death.
Clarke Do you ever talk about anything other than your death?
[Lexa smiles. Clarke tears off a new bandage and begins to rewrap Lexa’s hand.]
Lexa Thank you for backing me.
Clarke I was just doing what was right for my people. Your Ambassadors betrayed you. How do you move forward?
Lexa They were doing what they believed was right for their people, too.
[Clarke stands.]
Clarke Good night, Commander.
Lexa Good night, Ambassador.
[She turns and walks out the door.]
Scene 13 - Arkadia
[Open on Arkadia, the next day. Kane, flanked by two guards, goes to the prison, where Pike, Bellamy, Hannah and the other's are. One of the guards enters the keycode. Kane opens the door and enters. Pike stands.]
Kane Congratulations, Mr. Chancellor.
Pike Where’s Abby?
Kane Wishes she could be here.
[He holds out the Chancellor pin. Pike takes it.]
Kane The vote was close. Our people are now your responsibility, Charles. I hope you take that seriously.
Pike Thank you, Marcus. I certainly intend to.
[He pins the pin to his shirt.]
Pike For my first official action as Chancellor, I pardon myself and the others. For my second official action, I reject the brand that made us the 13th clan. For my third, let’s finish what we started.
[Everyone heads out the door but Kane steps in front of Bellamy before he can leave.]
Kane It’s not too late to choose the right side.
Bellamy I already have.
[Bellamy steps past him and heads out the door, leaving Kane looking very concerned in the cell alone.]
