Spoilers for 'The 100' Season 7 Episode 7 'The Queen's Gambit'
'The 100' has always been a series with a few subtle twists that no one sees coming. And while this episode may have not pushed the narrative too much ahead, it did give us pairings that some fans love. On Bardo, we saw, Echo (Tasya Teles) and Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos) in one room and Charmaine Diyoza (Ivana Milicevic) and Hope Diyoza (Shelby Flannery) in another.
Fans asked, "They watched Octavia's memories and you're telling me that they put Echo and Octavia alone in the same room?? #The100." While Diyoza meeting and being with Hope made sense, the one thing people did not expect yet loved was Octavia forgiving and comforting Echo.
"I STAN THIS OCTAVIA AND ECHO RELATIONSHIP FORMING #The100," tweeted one excited fan with another one adding, "Woah!! Talk about things I'd never thought I'd hear. Octavia saying Echo is her family too. Damn what growth and damn them feels tho? My goshhhh!!! #The100." In that room, the episode sees the aftereffects of Bellamy Blake's (Bob Morley) death — we see a flashback involving Becho and how Echo breaks down. The pairing was not one people expected nor did they expect Octavia to tell Echo this — "You're my family too".
"Octavia for Echo #The100," tweeted a fan as the phrase took over #The100 hashtag on the social media channel. It's not to say that everyone liked the pairing, while some salty fans tweeted, "Octavia comforting Echo .. ok makes a bit sense but O calling E her family too?? Nope makes 0 sense. That’s Clarke's and Bellamy's line by the way #The100" but the fans did not back down.
The replies to that tweet included, "that scene between Octavia and Echo has been one of my favorites ever #The100" with another adding, "I came straight to twitter after that Becho scene just to see all the salty Bellarkes. That was an amazing scene and so was the scene after with Echo & Octavia #The100." Not to mention, obviously, fans were impressed by the artistes playing the roles as one among many tweeted, "These two babes together tonight are everything l have been waiting for!! #[email protected] and #[email protected] are two strong incredible warrior women!! #[email protected]"
'The 100' airs on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
