Episode 12 - May We Geek Again - Discussing The 100 Season 3, eps. 13-16

October 24, 2016

We wrap up our season 3 rewatch, talking about episodes 13-16. Where do we go next? Well, we’re going to get into some theme podcasts and probably some fisticuffs will ensue.

 

Featuring:

 
  • Best podcast ever? We were not sober enough to tell - this is long enough to be a two-parter, but screw it, we're too lazy to edit this thing into two monsters, enjoy

  • It’s a long journey, but Shahin finally was able to open his bottle of wine and begin the podcast

  • Is the City of Light evil?

  • We discuss situationalism - people behave according to the situation that they’re in. Luna and Clarke deviate from their abstract morality in concrete situations

  • Jo weaves a web to entrap Shahin, Jen is rapt

  • We discuss shock and Stanford prison experiments

  • Is Luna naive or a hypocrite?

  • Jen “could be” a good person

  • Is Luna Floudonkru?

  • We revisit Mt. Weather

  • Luna seems to understand Lincoln better than Octavia does

  • Would Clarke let Bellamy die or give up the pass code if the situation arose?

  • Do we love the Abby/Clarke scenes? Of course we do.

  • Redemption arcs - Shahin doesn’t believe in them

  • Shahin reveals he’s writing fanfic and WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO PROCESS THIS INFORMATION
