'The 100' Season 3 Spoilers: Why Clarke Took Lexa's Offer -- Pike Uses Bellamy's Grief To Further Anti-Grounder Agenda

The 100 Season 3 has exceeded expectations, and it seems that the chaos is just beginning. There are questions after the events in Episode 3, titled "Ye Who Enter Here." Viewers are wondering what is going to happen next and why certain decisions were made. The 100 Season 3 spoilers for Episode 4 reveal that the characters will face more drama, suspense, and destruction.

On the last episode of The 100, Lexa offered Clarke and her group protection if they agreed to become the 13th Clan. Clarke resisted at first, and after speaking to Roan, she tried to kill Lexa. However, Clarke was unable to go through with it. By the end of "Ye Who Enter Here," Clarke took Lexa's offer.

Some viewers wondered if Clarke chose to stay because of weakness or her feelings for Lexa. Spoilers for The 100 Season 3 reveal the real reason. This time, Clarke is using her logic to protect the Sky People.

"Clarke agrees to stay, she's doing it largely because she still doesn't trust Lexa," executive producer Jason Rothenberg told TV Line. "Now that the Sky People have become the 13th Clan, they need an ambassador — and who better than 'Wanheda' to stay there and make sure Lexa follows through on what she promised?"

Even though Clarke accepted Lexa's offer to protect the Sky People on The 100 Season 3, Episode 3, that doesn't mean her emotions won't get in the way. Rothenberg also said Clarke still has feelings for Lexa. Viewers saw an indication of this when Clarke couldn't kill Lexa on The 100 Season 3, Episode 3.

Lexa rarely shows emotion or remorse. However, viewers witnessed a change in her on the last episode of The 100. When Clarke cried, Lexa's face softened. She appeared to have some regret, but not over her actions at Mount Weather. Lexa's guilt from the Season 2 finale of The 100 likely comes from having feelings for Clarke. She did what was necessary for the Grounders but didn't realize the impact it would have on Clarke. Even so, Lexa admitted she would still make the same decision.

As for the other characters, The 100 Season 3 spoilers reveal that the Sky People will be divided. The group has always tried to be peaceful, even creating treaties with the Grounders. However, more Ark survivors were found on the season premiere of The 100. Their goal is to destroy and kill the Grounders. Previous spoilers for The 100 reveals that the Arkers had a different experience. Ice Nation is the ultimate enemy, but Pike's group views all Grounders the same way. He has no interest in a treaty, truce, or peace and will do whatever it takes to complete his "mission."
A promo clip for The 100 Season 3, Episode 4, titled "Watch the Thrones," shows Pike taking advantage of Bellamy's grief. Ice Nation destroyed Mount Weather, and many lives were lost. Bellamy's girlfriend died in the explosion, which caused him to become anti-Grounder. Pike's mission on The 100 is to destroy every Grounder until there are none left. He uses Bellamy's grief to move forward with his agenda.

"He already has no affection for that culture, unlike Octavia, but I wanted there to be that one thing that would justify him really taking up the mantle of 'all Grounders are bad'," Rothenberg told TV Line. "That, coupled with Pike's influence, is what pushes him in that direction."

In The 100 Season 3 trailer, Bellamy receives a brutal beating from Octavia. That scene now makes sense knowing that Bellamy has turned anti-Grounder. What fans of The 100 don't know yet is what Bellamy will do. Will his actions destroy everything?

Spoilers Guide published promotional photos for The 100 Season 3, Episode 4. One image for "Watch the Thrones" shows Pike standing in front of what appears to be his anti-Grounder army. Pike's facial expression and body language indicate he is ready to take action.

The 100 Season 3, Episode 4 airs February 11 on the CW network.
