imagine having bellarke and just… not using them… could NOT be me. jroth is a scoundrel & i detest him
jee can’t wait for the next beliza con where they’ll talk about basic things and just avoid even promoting their show because of jroth’s crazy “anti spoiler” ass even tho we always guess the seasons’ plot before they air.
You know, I’m jaded like the rest of you. But more than anything I’m tired of feeling gaslit by Jroth, so I’m just gonna have hope (just like I would if he wasn’t such a troll) even though it might come back to bite me in the ass. I’m not gonna let him dictate how I feel. I’ve been here too damn long for that.
if jason really wants to do a surprise ending for the show all he has to do is wrap up even half of the plot and give bellarke the romantic relationship they both crave and deserve with each other. absolutely nothing would shock even the most casual viewers more than him satisfying anything this show has built
Yeah, I try not to let the Clarke anti opinions get to me because honestly they’re laughable, but the in-show things grate me.
Shaw in general was just handled very stupidly. I understand they had to wrap him up somehow because Jordan was leaving the show, but they completely 180-ed his character and made him not at all consistent with his S5 character- they dumbed him down to a judgy Christian stereotype, and I hate it so much.
Beyond that, though, I absolutely abhor the fact that they band-aided, as you said, Murphy and Raven’s relationships with Clarke in Season 6. To be fair, I should mention that we can’t be POSITIVE that those relationships won’t be explored, or that Murphy and Raven won’t apologize in Season 7, but I’m not holding my breath. The way they left it in Season 6 felt like they were attempting a resolution there, without it being resolved at all.
I’m mad at both Murphy and Raven’s actions towards Clarke, but god, I don’t know that I’ve ever been so mad as when Murphy saw Clarke with a knife to her own throat and said it would be fun to shoot her. That he wanted to shoot her. AS SHE’S SUICIDAL. And what resolution do we get for that? Clarke saying she’s proud of Murphy as Murphy mourns Abby. Murphy never mourns Clarke openly, never apologizes. But Clarke, the truly too good person she is, is proud of him for doing the barest minimum of being a decent person. And then there’s the whole Raven hug where it’s almost like Raven is forgiving Clarke? Despite Raven being a mega-bitch in late S5/most of S6? These aren’t resolutions, they aren’t satisfying, and they don’t address the narrative the writers set up. It’s safe to say I’m mad about this particular aspect of the show.
oh wow, the 100 ending this year because jroth got tired of it and became as flippant as d&d and decided to work on another project but also couldn’t let go of his original project, mostly out of arrogance.
i wish i was surprised
The pure fucking desperation Bob showed in that scene will never not make me cry. He willed her back to fucking life. He refused to once again live in a world without Clarke Griffin in it and she fought like hell to get back to him.
… and now it’s been 0 days since I was last mad about the fact that they might not be explicitly canon by the end because fucking jroth.
You know. I think the worst thing Jroth could do is not make Blarke canon. Not by killing them or by making Bleggo canon. Noooo. Leaving it “opened for interpretation”. So that he’d NEVER have to acknowledge that we were right AND at the same time, so that he can keep going with his “maybe it did, maybe it didn’t!” baiting bullshit.
it still astounds me to this day that one mr. jason rothenberg wrote s5 and thought yknow what’s new? what’s trendy? cannibalism. never before seen! gonna take our show to a whole new level! gonna shock the audience!
as if we haven’t had cannibals since the fucking reapers were introduced in season 1, episode 12. jroth is so dumb sometimes, in this essay i will-
True but jrot hates gays so he decided it would be nicer if Lexa got a bullet in her stomach rather than the chance to tell the girl she was in love with that she loved her
That’s what happens when two man babies with giant egos work together
I see so many people thinking that JRoth is just messing with the bellarke fandom because he doesn’t want to spoil the endgame and all I can think is “y'all clearly never heard of Chris Carter”
I hope I’m wrong but that’s the vibe he gives off tbh
After the 100 is over I’m never going to watch any show that is created by jroth
JRoth is just scared that his writing team is incapable of keeping audiences interested without dragging apart bellarke every three episodes… maybe you should takes some notes from Michael Schur, eat some bread, and calm down
if you need to make an entire tv show constantly go out of its’ way to separate two character who are friends so they don’t end up fucking and calling each other babe, because that feels like the inevitable outcome of them getting one second of peace to just chill and hang out, maybe you’re really bad at writing friends.
SIS I KNOW sldkhgKGHASKJHG i… hate him
What IS this obsession with gaslighting your audience? Why would you manipulate and betray the people who support your craft? I don’t understand.
one of my favorite shows was ruined by a show runner giving in to rabid fans even though the relationship and arc made no narrative sense and now it seems like another may be ruined by a refusal to please one side of the fandom even though the ship has been masterfully built and framed for years
me on jroth’s front lawn when bellarke is left ‘ambigious’ or unrealized by the end of s7 either by a shock factor bellamy or clarke death (or both, ugh), or a b*cho endgame:
