    I loved that they still said someone would get floated when the kids threatened to kill them on earth. :)

    You mean a rotary? Or were you really referring to a device used to cook chickens and the like? Cause those are still around :)

    Will somebody please kill Bellamy soon?

    I was hoping the grounder would break out a Cockney accent when Octavia was trying to talk to him.

    Catching up via thecw.com online ... how in the world can they hide octavia for 13(?) years in their room and then one day 'hey, let's go to this party!'

    Two months later and I'm still hoping somebody kills Bellamy.

    I definitely wasn't expecting the Mountain Men to be US troops.

    Yeah, that was the best kind of twist...complete surprise, but obvious once you think about it. I even wondered earlier in the episode how the Grounders adapted their tactics so quickly and well to deal with military-grade weapons, but I guess it wasn't so "quickly" after all!

    It was nice seeing the look on Dollhouse's face when she saw the charred remains of just about everybody she's ever known, and FINALLY realized that taking on people who can survive a century in space, even their children, is maybe not the best career move.

    When Anya(?) broke into the dropship, looking all threatening, I kept wondering why somebody didn't shoot her.

    I know there's a difference between killing people in self defense is different than executing them but I laughed a little when Clarke yelled "We're not grounders!" to stop the redshirts from killing Anya only to open the door to a mass grounder barbecue.

    I recall the arc said it had 7 drop ships left and could take abot 800 down. Then some rebelled and left on their own, wasting much of the air left, but now the arc claimed there were no drop ships left. Major inconsistency.

    The 7 made sense since each original space station had to have a way to come and go, and the now lack of all those made little sense other than that one got used. What was their hurry to leave right then anyway?
    You'd think they would have picked the best one to go in first and it would have landed.

    It's renewed, and with this ending looks like Jericho is what we will have next year.

    Before whats-her-name stole the first exodus ship, there was talk about it being prepared and having to charge its batteries. And that the charging would go slowly over several days so that the power grid of the ark wasn't impacted.

    At the beginning of the second to last episode, the chancellor stated that the ark only had 51 hours of life support left. Presumably due to more air loss and major damage to the power grid that the separating exodus ship caused, that was mentioned in an episode before that.
    At the end of the episode, the chancellor is reminded that there's "no more exodus ships". That's where the chancellor then says something like "yes we do. We have the ark", then proposes taking it down to Earth. It's never clarified what "no more exodus ships" means: that they were destroyed / damaged? Or that they're just not prepared/charged and there's no time/power to finish doing so.

    Yeah, you are right but usually it's over science errors. Here I can't figure why writers would say they have all these ships and then later not, just say that there were the 2 or 3 to begin with!

    I'm not against the idea that it's not necessary to say anything about it, as long as everything they do henceforth is consistent with the thing they didn't actually tell us. Unfortunately they haven't established that sort of relationship with their audience by their actions so far. :)

    Perhaps only 2 or 3 were actually ready to go, you know fully charged and functional.
