Spoilers for 'The 100' Season 7 Episode 7 'The Queen's Gambit'
Season 7 of CW's 'The 100' has been a tear-jerker more than once in multiple episodes and while the wars still rage, some forget to take time to breathe. In this episode, we get one of the best scenes we've seen so far, where mental health is finally given some consideration. In Sanctum, we see doctor Eric Jackson (Sachin Sahel) speak to Madi Griffin (Lola Flannery) about how she feels about everything she's been though. With Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor) and Gaia (Tati Gabrielle) gone, this is something Madi needed - well, if it were up to us, many characters would need it. "Madi Griffin deserved a normal childhood. #The100," tweeted a fan, with another one adding, "I’m glad someone took the time to actually talk to Madi about this trauma she’s been through. #The100."
With the last episode, many asked if Clarke would have a scene in which she takes control of her mental health and we were looking forward to it this episode. Unfortunately, Clarke scenes weren't too many here, but we did get a mental health check-in. "My baby Madi getting her mental health in check, being open and honest about her feelings, and then practicing some self care? I'm neither of her mothers and I am so proud #The100," tweeted a fan. Another wrote about the parts of the conversation that we think hit home the most as they tweeted the conversation: "Jackson: “So when Bellamy asked you to take the flame, how did that make you feel?” Madi: “I was scared... but I had to do it to save Clarke.” #ElizaTaylor #The100." If you missed the scene, you can watch the clip here.
Madi had been through a lot when she was asked to take the flame and become commander and Jackson assured her she wasn't crazy. "I really hope Madi gets the happiness she deserves #The100," tweeted a fan with another replying, "My heart just melted Madi needed this so much. Dr. Jackson is such a good man and he should get more screetime, period #The100. thank gods for jackson finally asking madi about her feelings and why she gets scared." In short, this scene may have been the best this episode and did resonate with a lot of fans, with one frustratingly hoping as they tweeted, "Jackson: Madi needs therapy Me: I think they ALL need therapy #the100."
'The 100' airs on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
