THE 100 is only two episodes into its seventh and final season on The CW, and it’s already breaking fans’ hearts.
In the latest season 7 episode, Octavia, stuck in the Anomaly on Planet Beta, wrote an “emotional” letter to big brother Bellamy about understanding all he did for her, and it had viewers “sobbing.”
In a series of flashbacks, fans finally began to learn what happened to Octavia, played by Marie Avgeropoulos, after she went after Diyoza (Ivana Milicevic) into the Anomaly in The 100 season 6.
Time moves differently there, and while everyone back home believe Octavia to be gone for only a short while, she’d actually been away for a decade, and during her time away, she worked hard to make it back to her brother.
Despite enjoying her new life with Diyoza and Diyoza’s growing daughter, Hope (Shelby Flannery), she spent year after year trying to get return to Bellamy (Bob Morley), and she almost had a chance six years in, but Diyoza broke an important suit she found.
She said she did it for Octavia’s own good, and for her and her daughter’s safety, but O fought her in anger before breaking down in tears and agony in Diyoza’s arms.
Octavia sobbed and said: “I just need to tell him I understand. Because of Hope, I understand. I need to tell him.”
Realizing she won’t be going back to her blood family any time soon, she chose to let out all of her emotions and love for her brother in a letter that she tried, and failed, to get to him via a message in a bottle.
The heart-breaking note read: “Bell, I hope against hope that this letter reaches you. I need you to know that you were right. There was a darkness in me. But Diyoza helped me pass that darkness.
“It’s behind me now. I need you to know that I finally understand all you did to protect me, watch over me, love me. I wish I could see your face and hug you and tell you that I get it now.
The letter continued: “I wish I could thank you. By the time you get this, if you get this, I’ll probably be an old lady or dead. I want you to know I was happy.
“I have Hope. Diyoza’s a pain in my a**, but I love her. Like I love you.”
Octavia concluded the letter by telling him not to worry about her because “you deserve to be happy, big Brother.”
Bellamy and O are two of the show’s fan-favorite characters, and their ever-changing relationship is one that people love to watch onscreen, which is why this episode — titled “The Garden” — broke fans’ hearts.
One The 100 viewer tweeted: “‘MA’AM, YOU CANT HAVE ME SOBBING MY A** OFF WITH ONE SENTENCE.”
Another wrote: “#The100 Octavias letter to Bellamy had me literally sobbing.”
A third said: “bruhh i have chills. that letter was nothing short of beautiful Loudly crying faceLoudly crying faceLoudly crying face #The100”
Others revealed they couldn’t “stop crying and sobbing,” that the letter made their “heart swell” and made them “emotional,” and that Bellamy and Octavia need to “reunite so she can say what’s in that letter to him in person!”
Whether or not the brother and sister duo will reunite during season 7 before the series comes to an end remains to be seen, especially as both characters are currently missing and their friends are searching for them.
The 100 season 7, episode 3 airs on The CW at 8 p.m. on Wednesday.
