The 100 plummeted into deep darkness on last week's "Thirteen." For a show that's inherently tragic with deaths of main characters and frequent massacres, the death of the Commander of the 13 Clans, Lexa, was the most depressing and heartbreaking of them all. For comparison, nearly the entire human race was wiped on the Earth in the same hour and it was just a tiny blip on the dreary scale.
Lexa was a fierce leader who was able to bring together the warring Grounder Clans and lead them to peace. She led with her head, but opened her heart to Clarke kom Skaikru. Their relationship was complicated from start to finish due to their loyalty first to their own people, but they overcame the hurdles and finally succumbed to their love for each other.
When Lexa was killed, so was their beautiful relationship.
I'm not going to get into the controversy surrounding Lexa's death right now, but what happened to her on The 100 crushed hearts, brought many tears and a lot of anger. Out of that rage, social media became a war zone which was disheartening to see.
That's why I'm glad that something good is coming out of this controversy. Whether you agree or disagree with how Lexa's death was handled, it doesn't matter and it doesn't matter what Clan you belong to in The 100 fandom. We can all come together and honor Heda by supporting a very important charity.
