I think it's ridiculous that none of the Ark people thought Finn should be punished for MASSACRING 18 PEOPLE. It makes sense to me that Clarke would be against him being killed, because Clarke has always argued against execution as a punishment, and I'm glad she couldn't say she forgave him, but it felt like there should have been a lot more judgment and a lot less self-blame there. (Some self-blame, sure. People do.) I can even make a case for Abby being against executing him, because Abby did actually always argue against killing people on the Ark (even if it took a LOT to make her actually go public with the Council's plans). But there's a difference in not wanting to kill someone and not thinking they did anything worth punishment.

And I want an acknowledgement that the Ark executed WAY more people than we've seen any sign the Grounders tend to, whether or not they did it for vengeance or for survival. I am really frustrated with how the Ark people keep insisting that wanting Finn to die for murdering 18 people is savage and barbaric. (I mean, I'm against the death penalty, but this is not an unreasonable response. And they do not have the resources to put someone in jail. At bare minimum, Finn should have been exiled, like Murphy -- and, of course, in these circumstances, exile is most likely a death sentence.)

Anyway! I am also unhappy re: Anya and that Indra is the vengeful, violent one, and also that Dr. Tsing (apparently not Singh? I don't even know) is the one pushing inhumane experiments at Mt. Weather. Dr. Tsing is really undercharacterized in general. I'm glad that they're complicating Indra slightly in her interactions with Clarke and Abby, but they have a long way to go to make up for the general stereotype.

I do love Lexa, though.

I'm really excited by the fall out, though, particularly between Clarke and Raven and in how the Ark people and the Grounders form their alliance.
