In the end, Clarke goes to meet with Lexa in a last-ditch effort to save Finn from the brutal execution process Lincoln has explained.
When Lexa refuses clemency, Clarke asks if she can say goodbye to Finn.
Kane attempts to take his own life rather than kill Jaha, but a Grounder witness, Lexa, reveals herself to be the commander and says she believes their wish for peace is sincere.
The commander of the allied Grounder clans, Lexa is proven to be a reasonable leader and strong warrior.
She considers love a weakness, a view significantly impacted by the death of her girlfriend, Costia.
Dating at such a rate soon took its toll and cynicism set in.
I stopped making any effort; I didn’t wear make-up so it wouldn’t need removing, didn’t drink so I wouldn’t be hung over and saved my nicest clothes for nicer occasions, such as dinner with friends.
When Lincoln is almost mercy-killed, his heart stops and he is revived by Clarke, who believes curing reapers depends on waiting for the serum to leave their bodies, even though the reaper might temporarily die in the process.
With this information, Clarke realizes they have something to offer the Grounders.
The tension between the people in Camp Jaha rises as opinions are divided whether to give Finn to the Grounders or not.
At the camp, Abby and Kane, having returned, think they can bargain with the Grounders by offering to put Finn on trial, but such plans are wasted as Finn gives himself up to the Grounders.
I dismissed him, chatting purely platonically when he let me sit in his car to keep warm. At Christmas I resolved to stay single indefinitely. Sitting on a friend’s sofa when Jamie walked into their party, I was suddenly incapable of speaking to him; for the first time in two years I didn’t know how to act towards a man.
Yet his heterosexuality still didn’t make him my match; as an engineer from Milton Keynes he was hardly the London media whiz I imagined myself with and, moreover, I hadn’t fallen for him when we first met. Yet I’m not surprised I ignored him; I was blinkered by over-dating, a pursuit which pushes away happiness by perfecting tick-boxes beyond the reach of reality and developing a materialistic attitude to relationships.
Though she starts to show romantic feelings for Clarke Griffin (leader of the Sky People) and takes Clarke's views into consideration, Lexa puts her people first, even at the expense of losing Clarke's trust.
