Raven: Explain to me how you two got in an accident. Clarke: Well we were driving and there was a deer on the road and Bellamy didn't notice it so I said. Jul 24, The show's creator isn't ruling out the chance of Bellamy and Clarke taking their relationship to the next level. Sep 25, "You've got it backwards." ~ Bellamy Blake. I choose this quote because I think it represents Bellamy and Clarke's relationship so well.
The complete each other in a really nice way. This quote is … what - two years old now?
It is built into the fabric of the show, in fact, it has almost become the core of the show - 4x13 made that clearer to me than ever before. Clarke being the head and Bellamy being the heart as core characteristics of who they are has to do with a lot more than just the way that they make decisions.
It affects all sorts of different aspects of their lives and extends itself into areas of gray that are far more complex than the black and white discussion a lot of people like to make it into, in my opinion. Please note that this meta became far too long for one post so I had to split it into two. In this one I will cover the first two sections I mentioned - intuition and leadership - and in the next post I will talk about the remaining two parts.
If any of that sounds of interest to you at all, please feel free to keep reading under the cut. Intuition The first thing I want to talk about in this post is the intuition category. We know that both Bellamy and Clarke are highly intelligent, in many different ways, but how are they different from each other? This is why I used the word intuition instead of intelligence.15 reasons to ship Bellamy and Clarke [Bellarke]
Both Bellamy and Clarke are very intelligent, but they have separate intuitions. Allow me to elaborate. For this reason, he can predict not just what someone might do, but why they might do it - what personal motivation or particular emotion is driving them to react to things in the way that they do.
It is easy for him to empathize with others in a sense that extends itself far beyond basic comfort and sympathy as most people. Instead, I ask you to consider something: Because he understands people.
Who they are at their core, and how that shapes their actions, not just how their responsibility or their external goals determine their actions which is a more head-focused kind of intuition. Decisions made from a place of pure, sometimes cold, logic? Clarke can understand that very easily.
I might add, that Pike - like Bellamy - was also a master of emotions, which is one of the traits that made Bellamy decide to follow him: They represented opposite extremes - L.
Clarke is a master at understanding the pure logic and pragmatic reasoning that would inform a decision one of her opponents or colleagues might make.
This is a difficult concept for me to articulate, although I can envision it clearly.
There were two people involved in piecing this together: Clarke with the help of hallucination! And how did she figure that out? It was a conclusion she came to simply by thinking about the situation, and coming up with possible solutions that her opponents might think of.

He knew this because he read Gustus someone he had barely interacted with like a book, and easily figured out his sense of protection over L. Bellamy used his excellent understanding of human nature to figure out that the poisoning of the cups was a desperate attempt of a man who would do anything to ensure the safety of a woman he feels responsible for.
Both of these pieces of information were important. In short, Bellamy and Clarke are both very intelligent people in similar ways, but when it comes to their most instinctive understanding of other people, they approach the situation in different ways head vs. It is revealed that Octavia had become a drug addict while in prison.
A few days later, someone sets fire to the camp, killing Thalia. As the survivors investigate, they discover a farm not too far from the site, leading them to the realization that they are not alone.
