From the primary second Indra realized that Sheidheda had taken over Russell’s physique, it has been clear these two would ultimately conflict over management of the Grounders. Their rivalry over the previous few episodes has been greater than only a energy wrestle although, since we all know one in all Indra’s earliest reminiscences was of Sheidheda conquering Trikru, killing her father, and forcing her mom to kneel to him within the course of.
“Indra, I imply, think about the affect that Sheidheda had on her life, from the time of a kid,” JR Bourne informed TV Information, reflecting on the historical past of the 2 characters. “She noticed her clan taken, killed, and brought over by him. She has been knowledgeable by this demon, this monster, her entire life.”
All of that historical past got here to a head in Wednesday’s episode when Indra challenged him to mortal fight. In one of many collection’ most spectacular struggle sequences but, Indra and Sheidheda battled it out for the title of Commander. In keeping with Bourne, it was probably the most rewarding experiences he is had on the present to date.

Despite the fact that Indra (and Adina Porter, too) is a powerhouse, finally, we have been fairly anxious that she’d be the one to fall when this struggle concluded. As an alternative, Madi (Lola Flanery) interceded to stab Sheidheda within the eye earlier than he may ship the killing blow. The end result was that Indra needed to kneel to Sheidheda in an effort to spare Madi’s life, which implies the Darkish Commander is now formally ruling Sanctum.

Finally, they are going to must face him, they usually may need to do it with out the assistance of their pals nonetheless on Bardo.
Talking of stated pals, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) tried to flee Bardo with all her pals, however these plans have been derailed when Echo executed her secret “Kill Everybody on Bardo as Revenge for Bellamy” plan. She plotted to make use of the alien compound that had turned the earlier inhabitants of Bardo into crystallized statues within the air system, killing the entire Disciples in a single blow, however Diyoza (Ivana Milicevic) stopped her earlier than she may.
Sadly, Hope (Shelby Flannery) was completely on board with genocide, and when she tried to power the compound into the vents a single drop escaped in the course of the wrestle. Diyoza caught it in time, however it immediately crystallized her. Thus died essentially the most beloved house terrorist we have ever identified.
Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) and Hope will certainly be mourning this loss for some time. Hope will little question really feel an awesome sense of guilt for basically killing her mom, and poor Octavia has now misplaced her finest good friend and her brother one after the opposite. Even worse, we type of get the sensation this would possibly the primary of many main character deaths to come back…
