When Josephine was tapping her arm whereas her dad was speaking to Bellamy, it was as a result of Clarke was sending a Morse code message to Bellamy. You see, Josephine talked about earlier within the episode that there are particular recollections which are buried deep in our brainstems – so deep that we are able to’t even keep in mind the recollections ourselves. However these recollections are so painful that they create autonomic responses outdoors of our management that we don’t even notice we’re doing.
The concept is that when they gained entry to that exact reminiscence in Josephine’s mind-space, they may use the ache of a hidden reminiscence Josephine couldn’t face to manage her physique to a point with out her realizing it. That’s why Monty hid within the room so Josephine wouldn’t see her when she kicked Clarke out of the reminiscence.
Now, it’s probably not clear why they had been in a position to management Josephine’s finger with out her realizing, or why the Christmas lights particularly did that. There’s no actual rationalization for that half, so that you simply should take it on religion. However they tapped out a Morse code that simply mentioned ALIVE to point out that Clarke was nonetheless alive in there someplace. Bellamy was in a position to translate it as a result of Pike taught him Morse code a very long time in the past. (It’s good to see Pike having some sort of lasting usefulness as a substitute of all of the destruction he created up to now.)
So now that Bellamy is aware of Clarke’s alive, he additionally is aware of meaning Josephine and her dad are mendacity and may’t be trusted. So now he’s going to faux to nonetheless have the same opinion whereas determining a option to save Clarke. Understand that that is all happening whereas Madi remains to be planning her personal revenge.
There’s additionally one other twist you might need missed. ALIE is alive in Clarke’s thoughts, hidden from Josephine’s data. She’s the rationale Clarke lived. She advised Clarke which reminiscence to maintain hidden from Josephine, however Clarke failed and gave up the reminiscence.
However ALIE was tricking Clarke too, as a result of ALIE desires to dwell simply as a lot as Clarke desires to dwell. She despatched a reminiscence that confirmed Josephine that an EMP would kill the chip. However that’s probably not how issues labored with Raven. The EMP killed the chip that was in Raven’s thoughts, disconnecting her from that paradise world ALIE had created and permitting the chip to be eliminated. Raven needed to drown herself and later be revived in an effort to take away ALIE’s code from her head. So the EMP isn’t going to kill Clarke, who’s sort of serving the ALIE position on this situation. As a substitute, the EMP goes to kill the chip in Clarke’s head and presumably wipe Josephine.
ALIE tricked Clarke, figuring out Clarke wouldn’t have the ability to preserve the reminiscence from Josephine indefinitely. She did this so they may, in flip, trick Josephine and kill the thoughts drive in Clarke’s head. That’s the prevailing principle amongst followers proper now concerning the ending of Season 6 Episode 7.
