Which characters, besides Bellamy, do you guys think have the ability to inspire people? And do you think they can inspire people more or less than Bellamy can?

Hmmm, good question. I definitely think Kane, for sure. That's from experience, though. Maybe Raven? Monty is definitely one of those more hopeful characters, and I think he could inspire people more if he wanted, but he tends to take a back seat. He's passionate, though. I think the only one close to Bellamy as far as inspiring people right now is Kane.

I guess Octavia, too, what with the whole unifying the bunker thing, but I think that was more for survival than anything.

Other than Bellamy the biggest and most obvious one for me was Lexa, especially in her later reign as Commander, I wouldn't say it was more or less than Bellamy, but just different.

I think for me what is most important though isn't them inspiring "the people" but them inspiring each other. Like Clarke inspired both Bellamy and Lexa. Bellamy would inspire Raven, Lincoln would inspire Octavia, Octavia would inspire Bellamy and so on. It's part of what has gotten them this far.

Also in terms of inspiring me personally, I find Raven really inspirational, Octavia and Clarke too, especially as a young woman. Those kind of role models are so important.

Interesting thoughts, girls.

I think Kane has the ability to inspire people, but it was tested towards the end of season four when a lot of Skaikru were resenting him for going along with Octavia's decision. Speaking of Octavia, she's certainly in a position to inspire a large group of people now.

As much as I hate to say it, Jaha has demonstrated a significant ability to inspire people.

Clarke and Raven definitely can, but I think that Raven inspires people because of her capabilities, and Clarke . . . well, she goes through phases, and sometimes inspiring people like she did when she promised them survival in 4x02 upsets them when she can't follow through. And Lexa definitely inspired her officiates (is that the word?) and other grounders who didn't envision the fighting continuing forever.

And Becks, like you said, they all inspire each other, in some way or another. I think that's a testament to how well written the dynamics on this show tend to be.

I think Bellamy's charisma and his "heart" approach to decision-making are two of the biggest factors in why people are inspired by him. When he speaks to those crowds of people, he does it so passionately that, even if he's not 100% right, at the very least, you can't help but listen. And people are drawn to emotions, often. So a guy like Bellamy, who ends up wearing his emotions on his sleeve despite his best efforts to conceal them . . . it's attractive to people.

The king will return. I'm way too excited for something that's happening months from now. But I will do a jig seeing Bellamy Blake back on earth!

Far too long. But the holiday portion of the year goes so fast for me personally. That'll knock some time off quickly.

I'm just excited about all of the possibilities. Seeing how his role has changed, grown, his look, the connections with the others. So much to look forward to.

Yeah, it's exciting. At first it was kind of frustrating that, while we got a glimpse into Clarke 6 years later, we got nothing for Bellamy. But that adds to the excitement!

Once the school year starts back up, things will go fast for me, too.

I'm not holding my breath, though. He'd have to grow that out pretty quickly. Don't they start filming soon?

Who knows, though. We might get a bearded Bellamy after all.

Feeling lazy so I haven't attempted to reply to your question yet, April. But I will, later.

Okay, Sarah.

Well, at the very least SDCC definitely put the facial hair idea in his mind.

Yes, bless SDCC 2017. Maybe, he'll have a chat with the writers on the beard/moustache after this.

He mentioned a "beard budget." Even if he can't grow a full one, the makeup department could probably work wonders.

I read a fic with bearded Bellamy the other night.

WTF, a beard budget? The more you know.

I still think scruff, and not a full-blown beard is best.

Ooh. Which fic is this one?
