Bellamy is not very happy with Jaha and Clarke's decision of taking over the bunker, leaving all the Grounders outside. Especially taking into account Octavia is also outside. Bellamy will try his best (as we knew he would) to let the ones outside in.
"The Other Side" is a gripping episode that tackles again the subjects that are so pervasive through "The 100"'s plot: freedom of choice, survival, family, who is us and who is they... and it does through our number one "I always have to do the right thing, whatever the consequences" Bellamy. Bellamy, who had been on the sidelines on many of the episodes this season, takes center stage and Bob Morley, as always, delivers. His Bellamy is full of layers and subtlety, even if in this case, his path is chosen for him and quite straightforward. Even with these downsides, the plot is thrilling, twisting and engaging, and it delivers without forgetting about giving depth to the story.
The rest of the story-lines are also interesting (Raven's is probably the weakest) and help in showing us how many options and decisions we are allowed to take on an extreme situation, and how freedom is not as free as we may believe. As in any kind of situation.
"The Other Side" is a great episode and leaves things open for a great ending for this fourth season.
