The CW’s The 100 season five episode eight was a wild one, with Clarke under arrest, Abby forcing Raven to help her just so she could obtain more drugs, Diyoza admitting she’s pregnant, and Bellamy knocking out his sister.
Clarke and Bellamy found a way to kill off the worms, killing off Cooper in the process. They thought not being able to weaponize the worms would make Octavia surrender, thus fulfilling their promise to Diyoza. Indra agreed to help and gassed the worms, and once they were dead she attempted to convince Octavia the cost in lives would be too high if she went through with her battle plans.
However, Octavia shocked Indra by revealing they were going to use the eggs, not the worms. Octavia immediately realized Clarke and Bellamy planned this to make it look like an accident. Octavia ordered Clarke arrested, taunting both Clarke and Bellamy with the fact the eggs are already loaded up and ready to go. As Clarke was taken away, she made Bellamy promise to keep Madi safe.
Meanwhile, John made a deal with McCreary (William Miller) in a desperate attempt to save Raven. Emori and John pretended to be McCreary’s prisoners and were taken to Diyoza.
After being used by Abby, Raven is now ready to do what’s necessary to stop Diyoza.
The episode ended with Bellamy meeting one-on-one with Octavia. He secretly dosed an energy bar with Monty’s algae and knocked Octavia out. As she was passing out, Bellamy said, “You’ll be okay. By the time you wake up we’ll be in the valley. We will have peace. My sister – my responsibility.”

The Season 5 Plot: Over the last four seasons The 100 have fought to survive against unimaginable odds, only to see the world end for a second time.

But when a massive prison ship descends upon the last survivable place on earth, The 100 must come together to reclaim their home.
As two armies converge on one valley, alliances will shift, friends will become foes, and the march to war threatens to destroy all that’s left of the human race. Can our heroes break the cycle, or is humanity doomed to repeat the past? In this epic battle for survival, one thing is certain: there are no good guys.
