Throughout the Series Edit
In Pilot, Clarke is very angry at Wells for joining The 100 on their mission. Clarke tells him he hates him and wants nothing to do with him. When they arrive on the ground Clarke tells Wells that he should not have come down. While on the ground John Murphy attacks Wells due to being the Chancellor's son. Clarke helps him on his feet after the fight ends, and tells him she can't and won't take Wells on their expedition to attain food from Mount Weather.
In Earth Skills, Wells, Clarke, Bellamy, Finn and Murphy go on a mission to find Jasper Jordan, who was speared and captured by Grounders. While on the journey Wells takes Bellamy's advice and tries to prove to Clarke that he can be a good man, by saving the group when a Panther tries to attack the group when saving Jasper.
In Earth Kills, flashbacks reveal Clarke and Wells past on The Ark. Wells is shown hanging out with Clarke and their fathers as they watch a pre-war football game on an old T.V. Later when Clarke and Wells are playing chess together, Clarke confesses to Wells that her father is going to tell everyone about the oxygen shortage on The Ark. Afterwards Wells can be seen at Clarke's father's execution, causing Clarke to hate Wells.
In the present, Clarke, Finn, and Wells go out on a mission to find supplies. While out they see a mysterious Fog, which appears to be very dangerous. The three run off and find a car buried in the ground, and the group jumps into it to take shelter from the fog. While in the car Clarke drinks rum, causing her to get drunk. Wells tries to make her happy, but Clarke only brushes him off telling him that she still hates him. Afterward, Finn tells Clarke that Wells is a nice guy, and questions whether or not he was the only one who knew of her father's secret. Clarke soon realizes it was her mother, and walks up to Wells at night who was digging a grave to those who were caught by the fog. Clarke hugs Wells and tells him that she forgives him.
The next day, Charlotte, a little girl walks up to Wells and when no one notices, she stabs him in the neck and cuts off two of his fingers in defense, watching Wells die a slow painful death in order to "slay her demons".
