'The 100' 3x03 Gif-Tweet-Cap: So 'Lucky' Someone Lived!

The 100 episode "Ye Who Enter Here" continues from where Clarke was captured and spat a giant loogie in Lexa's face in the last episode. The gifs can also be found on my Tumblr post, and you can listen to an additional discussion of the episode below, or subscribe on iTunes.

After destroying Clarke's entire life by betraying her so that she felt she had no choice but to kill all the Mountain Men, Lexa wants Clarke to suffer even more by convincing her to "Bow before Zod!!"... er... Lexa.
Of course, Lexa doesn't know she's making Clarke suffer because she assumes everyone (especially Clarke) loves her and thinks she's the best leader in the whole wide world, like, ever. But it's also a great deal because Lexa is offering protection for the Sky People as her own in exchange for that bow. Clarke just wants her to "go float" herself.
While Clarke tries to decide whether to trust Lexa, Lexa tricks an Ice Nation Dude into thinking she wants to give him a message for the Ice Queen, but the message happens to be his death.

Meanwhile, Abbey has moved all of Farm Station into Mt. Weather, but that doesn't go over well with anyone else, what with all the dead bodies that filled the place a mere three months ago, courtesy Lexa's betrayal and Clarke's willingness to protect her own people at the cost of all Mountain Men.
But then Echo, Bellamy's Ice Buddy, arrives to tell everyone at Mt. Weather that the summit being planned by Lexa is a trap for the Arkadians. He can’t reach his Ark peeps, so he goes forward with a couple of anti-Grounder plans: the first is for Raven, Sinclair and Bellamy’s new girlfriend Gina to get Mt. Weather’s missiles working; and the other is to storm the summit. After a nice brother-sister bonding moment, Octavia is all in on storming the summit as well. Of course, Pike goes along, because he hates all Grounders.
Meanwhile, Abbey is taking a lesson on diplomacy from Kane. For example, rather than rudely rejecting a Grounder delicacy as Abbey does, Kane thoroughly enjoys it (or at least convincingly pretends to love it).

Kane also becomes friends with some of the Grounders, such as Indra. They are such good buddies, in fact, that Indra actually smiles when she sees him. Who knew she could be so beautiful?

The summit goes forth before Bellamy can reach it, and Clarke does the big bow. Everyone else, including the Ark people of Arkadia, follow suit. Kane even gets branded as the leader of the 13th clan!

Soon after, Bellamy barges in to warn everyone, but it falls flat. When an assassin breaks into Mt. Weather and sets off a self-destruct bomb, Bellamy realizes he has officially taken a belly flop. Raven does her best to stop it, but retrieves the code just a few seconds after Gina dies... and the bomb goes off, killing almost everyone from Farm Station. Cue the tragedy, Raven sobbing, and soon-to-come man pain the moment Bellamy learns of Gina’s death.
Once the initial cloud of dust settles, Clarke shares her concerns that Lexa will betray her again. Lexa reassures her by showing how loyal she is to her own people. Now that Clarke is her own people, Lexa returns the bow, albeit in private.

At the end of the episode, we see why the Ice Assassin was able to set off the self-destruct bomb: a single Mountain Man survived, and joined Ice Nation.
