What if the fight is all we are? We torture, kill, betray. We pretend we're more than that just to make ourselves feel better, but it's a lie.

Quotes Edit

Octavia: "'Rogue'. I'm a warrior."
Kane: "No. A warrior knows when not to kill."

Luna: "What if the fight is all we are? We torture, kill, betray. We pretend we're more than that just to make ourselves feel better, but it's a lie."

Raven (to Luna): "It's not your blood that defines you. It's your heart."

Clarke: "You have to know that a random lottery is risky. We could end up with no doctors, no engineers."
Jaha: "You saw that we have to give them something to fight for. We can't tell people they have no value."
Clarke: "That's not what I said."
Jaha: "That's what they heard. The list was pragmatic, but the people need to feel like they have a say in their fate."

Bellamy: "Doesn't matter what we do. We'll always end up here – in the brink of war."

Bellamy: "Octavia will get there first. She'll warn them you're coming. You'll lose."
(Echo tosses Octavia's broken sword to the ground.)
Roan: "She wouldn't be taken alive."
Bellamy: "No."
Roan: "I am sorry."
Echo: "It was a good death."

Notes and Trivia Edit

Behind the Scenes Edit

  • In the initial drafts, this episode started with an assassination attempt on King Roan, but it was cut for space.[3]
  • There was a scene with all the Sky People lifting the radiation shield into place. It was filmed but later cut.[4]
  • To make Octavia's horse (Helios) lick her hand in the final scene, the crew used molasses.[5]
  • The title has two meanings:
    • It's from the quote, "An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie, for an excuse is a lie guarded."[6] This might be a reference to Clarke hiding the truth about Alpha Station only being able to support 100 people out of the 500 Sky People.
    • It is also a visual pun: "A Lie Guarded" → "ALIE Guarded", referencing the drones guarding A.L.I.E.'s Island.[7]
