A few weeks ago I started watching The 100. I started getting curious about this show during the summer. I was in London with my sister to attend YALC and it seemed that all over Twitter people were talking about this show. Then university started and I felt like I couldn’t start a new tv show. So while I was on break I decided to watch an episode to see what all the fuss was about… and two days later I’d finished watching the entire first season. I haven’t even read the book yet, but that first episode was so incredibly good that I couldn’t stop watching. I am completely and irrevocably obsessed with this show.
And then there was Lincoln, and my obsession grew even bigger. Or more specifically: Lincoln and Octavia. The two meet, they have this strong connection, and pretty fast after that they’re getting hot and heavy. Sound familiar? Well, it seems like a perfect example of insta-love doesn’t it? But while this would annoy me to no end in books, I don’t seem to care about it in tv-shows. I have no idea why, but I ship them all the way. They’re some of my favourite characters in this show. Maybe it’s just because Lincoln is a badass and looks incredibly good. Maybe it’s that they have great chemistry. Or maybe it is the character development they both undergo. I really have no idea, but what I do know is that I binge watched all the episodes there are in under a week, and that’s fast (and quite possible slightly unhealthy).
I am so, so, so obsessed with this show and with Lincoln and Octavia’s relationship. I just love it. And can’t wait for the next episode to air!
