Spoilers for 'The 100' Season 7 Episode 2 'The Garden'
In Episode 2 'The Garden,' we were taken back to the time when Hope (Shelby Flannery) was born to Charmaine Diyoza (Ivana Miličević) on Planet Skyring. Diyoza spent three months by herself on Skyring after having gone into the Anomaly and was about to give birth when Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos) finally made it to Skyring. "That timing was also unbelievably convenient. Octavia pops out and Diyoza is having the baby right then. ok #the100," tweeted a fan. Talk about starting an unbreakable bond?
She was there for the birth of Hope, and we saw, from the start, how Octavia became part of Hope and Diyoza's family. The relationship between Octavia and Diyoza was that of co-parenting as they raised their non-traditional family. "Hope, Diyoza and Octavia, so cute together :) I'm glad they stayed together as a family, even if it did mean that they spent a decade or two alone there #The100," tweeted a fan.
"This episode is reminding me of how much I love #The100 for its representation of alternative models of family - Hope, Diyoza, and Octavia are giving me all the feels @JRothenbergTV #The100FinalSeason #The100S7," tweeted another fan.
We were shown that Octavia had not given up trying to find her brother, Bellamy Blake (Bob Morley). She was trying to go back to Sanctum to find Bellamy by deep diving into the Anomaly. Diyoza just wanted Octavia to stay. "This is our life now," Diyoza tells Octavia. The day Octavia had decided to leave, Charmaine had broken her deep-diving helmet forcing her to stay back. Her emotional breakdown was probably one of the saddest scenes in the episode. "#The100 Diyoza got Octavia to break," tweeted a fan while another tweeted "This episode is breaking my with all these scenes between Diyoza and Octavia #The100." Their bond was strong till the end when a stunt pulled by Octavia gets the two of them captured by The Disciples and been taken to Bardo.
This episode was definitely emotional with Easter eggs for hardcore fans to enjoy. "I really enjoyed this episode of #The100. A lot better than the season 7 premiere. Octavia, Hope and Diyoza makes a great family. I was not ready for this episode to end. Let's see how next week goes!" tweeted a fan with our exact sentiments.
'The 100' airs on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
