The 100 Sneak Peeks: Clarke and Lexa Prepare to March on Mount Weather

by Araceli / February 25, 2015

Battle lines have been drawn and the war against the Mountain Men has officially started on The 100. Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Lexa (guest star Alycia Debnam Carey), along with Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) and an army of Grounders, are now standing at the edge of Mount Weather, waiting for the go ahead from Bellamy (Bob Morley). They’re counting on him to turn off the acid fog so the final battle can begin.

Unfortunately for them, on this week’s episode, titled “Bodyguard of Lies,” Bellamy is finally discovered as the spy within Mountain Weather. And matters will only get worse when Octavia realizes Clarke and Lexa knew about the missiles all along and used the knowledge to save themselves while letting a lot of other people die.

“In wartime truth is so precious that she should be attended by a bodyguard of lies,” goes the famous quote by Winston Churchill for which this episode is named. Essentially, what it means is that information during wartime must be kept secret in order to have the best chance at defeating the enemy. Clarke and Lexa put this idea to the ultimate test after they decided not to tell anyone about the missiles. And Bellamy’s mission inside Mount Weather is another good example. Alas, both secrets will be revealed this week, raising the stakes for everyone involved.

Don’t miss an all-new episode of The 100 tonight at 9:00 p.m. on The CW.
