Seventeen years ago, a young Bellamy tries to comfort his mother, who’s in labor. As most TV births turn out, it’s a relatively easy ordeal and Bellamy decides to name his new sister after emperor Augustus’s sister — Octavia.
Gee, Mom, no pressure or anything.
Present day, Octavia wakes up, injured and alone, in a dark cavern of sorts. The Grounder who took her comes in and lunges at her with a white-hot metal stake. She blacks out.
After looking for his sister with Clarke’s help, Bellamy organizes a search party. Raven’s giving Finn a haircut and he wants to tell her what happened between him and Clarke. Naturally, he doesn’t and instead catches up with Clarke and tells her he likes her slightly more. Before the gang sets out, they see the bodies of the people they killed on the Ark falling in the sky like meteors. Determined now more than ever to make contact with the Ark, Clarke and Raven set out to find a new transmitter.
When Octavia wakes up — again — she discovers the Grounder fixed her wound. Now that she’s all patched up, she manages to escape the cave. But as her brother and the others get closer to finding her, they come across a bunch of skeletons, a warning sign from the Grounders.
