After Wells died I basically watched the show with the assumption that everyone would die in every scene.

Same, Marie. I vaguely remember discussing this point with April before (I think) but to me, that was the exact moment when my perception of the show shifted from a regular teen show to a super dark post-apocalyptic show which happens to center around a bunch of teens. And yes, I basically rejoiced if my favourites survived the season from that point on.

Alexa, I agree that it was utterly horrible that Octavia had to watch it and how it happened was so brutal as well. There are a few scenes in the show which I cannot rewatch to this day because it's too painful and that scene is definitely one of them.

Oh yeah totally - I thought the show was pure garbage at first, until people starting dying like...whoa. Then I realised this show was different from other shows.

I didnt think it was garbage, i thought it was kinda boring/cliche at first, but it got wayyyyy better in season 2 imo.

I was judging it a bit hard in the Pilot but thought that it had potential (also, people already said that the first few episodes are the shakiest of the lot) so I hung in there. Until episode 3 happened and I was shook that the show went there ... with a child killing a character that I thought would be a pretty central character and then the culling.

I knew that the show which dared to show that had some real guts ... it was not a pretty, happy ending which is what I typically expect from most shows.

Character You Didn’t Like at First
but now Like/Love




MARCUS KANE

Like many, I definitely hated this guy at first, and it actually took me until the end of the first season
to really start warming up to him. I wasn’t at all a fan of him shock-lashing Abby in the second season,
but overall, I really do think that being on the ground has brought out the best in Kane. In season three,
when he was the one leading the small faction against Pike, I was cheering him on so hard. I really do
think that Kane’s mistakes have made him a stronger, wiser leader, which is why I chose him as the
best leader on the show. He is open-minded yet willing to do what needs to be done. Credit goes to
HIC’s acting chops for really giving this character many more layers than I originally perceived.

Great choice April

Kane is my #1 too ... but you've said everything what is to say about Kane ... I can't post something different/better ... so I post my #2:



Day 24: The Character you didn’t like at first
but now like/love


John Murphy















I really disliked Murphy in Season 1
he was a selfish dick
he used his power position at the side of Bellamy to bully others
okay, he was hanged although he was innocent and that was not okay
but then he has killed two guys, has wanted to kill Charlotte and Bellamy,
has threatened Clarke with a knife, hold Jasper hostage,
all these actions let me dislike him a lot

And then Season 2 happened and surprise, surprise, Murphy has started to care about other people
looking after Raven in the dropship, saving Bellamy while the girl rescue action,
try to stop Finn's shooting in Ton DC, try to protect Finn from the Grounders retributive justice...
so I've started to like Murphy

Meanwhile Murphy did a lot things to make him likeable,
like being a big part while the ALIE destruction
or as a teamworker with the space crew
and his bond with Emori is really beautiful and special
I can't say, that I love Murphy, like I love Kane
but I can say, that I like him a lot now

Wow, Sonja, how did I not even think of Murphy? I guess I’m at the point now where I’ve just completely forgotten that I ever disliked him.

Great posts, Sonja and Alexa. Agreed with these bits:

I think that I have a good idea of who is mine too.

Oh yeah, I thought it was garbage. At least, the pilot. The acting in the first episode was questionable, the choice of Radioactive (which I now think is cute), Octavia and Bellamy and Finn were all so annoying and cliche at first. I thought the end of the pilot was cool with Jasper getting speared - that intrigued me a bit.

Also I can't pick one character I didn't like at first, because there were so many I'll get back to you.

I definitely hated Murphy at first and was gleeful with every close encounter he had but I can't imagine the show without him
