Octavia: "I love you, big brother. It takes me to the end of the world to say it."

Bellamy: "I love you too."

Bellamy and Octavia is the relationship between siblings Bellamy Blake and Octavia Blake. They are portrayed by starring cast members Bob Morley and Marie Avgeropoulos and debut in the series premiere.

Because of the one child law on the Ark, Bellamy and Octavia are the only known siblings among the Sky People. They are half-siblings.

Ever since Bellamy sided with Pike in Season Three, their relationship has been strained. After Lincoln's death, in Stealing Fire, Octavia disowned Bellamy, blaming him for Lincoln's death. However, in Gimme Shelter, Die All, Die Merrily, and The Chosen, the events in the episodes have made Octavia overcome her own personal demons and restores her relationship with Bellamy in The Other Side and Praimfaya.

Summary Edit

Bellamy's and Octavia's sibling relationship starts before the first episode of season one at Octavia's birth. After Octavia was discovered and locked up, Bellamy shot Chancellor Jaha in order to stow away on the Delinquents' drop ship so he could protect his sister on the ground. Throughout Season One, Bellamy is overly protective of Octavia to the point of them getting into numerous fights. Eventually, he acknowledges his sister is stronger than he thought and in We Are Grounders (Part 2), Bellamy says goodbye to Octavia and allows her to leave with Lincoln after she is injured in the war.

Bellamy and Octavia are reunited again in Season Two when Octavia saves him from Grounders in Many Happy Returns. Bellamy then helps Octavia find Lincoln and treat him through his Reaper drug withdrawals in Long Into an Abyss. After Bellamy infiltrates Mount Weather with the help of Lincoln in Survival of the Fittest, Octavia refuses to leave him behind, sacrificing her chance to be a Woods Clan warrior in Blood Must Have Blood (Part 1). Bellamy then saves her life by irradiating all of Mount Weather in Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2).

Early Life Edit

Young bellamy

Young Bellamy keeping newborn Octavia quiet.

Aurora Blake, Bellamy's mother, was forced to keep her second pregnancy a secret because of the one child law on the Ark. A seven-year-old Bellamy watched his mother give birth to his sister and even helped keep her quiet after the birth. After the child was born, Aurora told Bellamy to name her. He had learned about the Roman emperor, Augustus, and named his sister after the emperor's sister, Octavia. Aurora told Bellamy that Octavia was his responsibility. He told her he loves her very much and promises to keep her safe, no matter what may happen.

Because Octavia was an illegal second child, she had to be kept hidden in their room, never venturing out. Bellamy would tell her stories and play with her, telling her about the Ark. Their mother would also read them mythology, which Octavia loved. Octavia would also help Aurora, who was a seamstress on the Ark. In order to find out about the surprise inspections ahead of time, Aurora was sleeping with an Ark Guard and she was also trying to get Bellamy a position on the guard. During these inspections, Octavia was forced to hide under the floorboards and wait quietly until they were done. Bellamy told her to tell herself, "I am not afraid."

Octavia was finally exposed a year before they were sent to earth. Bellamy had become an Ark Guard Cadet and was able to get duty during the Unity Day masquerade party. He sneaks Octavia out of their room so she could attend and promises her that he'll keep her safe and deliver her home before their mother even knows they're gone. The party is disrupted by a solar flare alert, requiring everyone to show ID. Since Octavia didn't have any ID, they knew they would be caught. Bellamy tells her to go straight back to their room and hide but Octavia admits to him that she doesn't know how to get back. Commander Shumway notices that Bellamy has his shock baton out and starts to question them. Bellamy begs Commander Shumway to let her go, but he refuses stating Bellamy is not a guardsman yet. Octavia tries to run but is easily captured. Bellamy suddenly loses his sister, his mother, and his chance to be an Ark guard and becomes a janitor.

A year later, Bellamy is approached by Commander Shumway who tells Bellamy that 100 prisoners are being sent to the ground, his sister among them. He offers Bellamy the chance to go to Earth and protect Octavia but only if he shoots and kills the Chancellor. Bellamy accepts the deal and stows away on the dropship.
