Raven Reyes (grew up together)
|— Finn whispering to Clarke [src]|
Finn Collins was a major character in the first and second seasons. He is portrayed by starring cast member Thomas McDonell and debuts in the series premiere. Finn is a tracker for the 100. He is killed in episode eight of Season Two, Spacewalker.
Finn is part of the original 100, arrested for an illegal spacewalk that cost The Ark roughly 3 month's supply of oxygen.
While on Earth, Finn has been stabbed and hurt multiple times. He's killed multiple grounders and he cares deeply for his friends and will do almost anything to protect them. Finn had a brief relationship with Clarke and after they spent the night together he was reunited with his girlfriend Raven. Finn was deeply apologetic stating to Clarke that he thought he would never see Raven again. Despite this the two end up becoming friends a while later. In the second season, Finn has changed drastically, taking a dark path after Clarke and his people disappeared. He is far less hesitant than he was in the first season.
Early Life Edit
Finn was once a resident on The Ark. Due to illegal spacewalking, resulting in a waste of a month's oxygen, Finn was sent to The Ark's jail for his crime. Later, in the episode "Spacewalker", it is revealed that he didn't spacewalk, but was covering for Raven, who was 18 and would be floated. As he was 17, he would go to jail and have a trial.
Throughout the Series Edit
In The 48 Finn is taken hostage by Tristan, along with another Delinquent. He witnesses Tristan killing the unnamed Delinquent he was with, and then Tristan tells Finn that he's only being kept alive so he can go talk to the Commander. Bellamy, Sterling, and Monroe attempt to rescue Finn, but it only results in Bellamy being taken hostage and the other two almost dying. However, Kane shows up and saves all four of them by killing Tristan, and then brings them back to camp. Finn sticks up for Bellamy when he's arrested for attacking and almost killing Murphy.
In Inclement Weather, Finn holds Raven's hand throughout her surgery. Raven later tells Finn that he has to leave and go search for their friends. Finn frees Bellamy in order for Bellamy to help him go find the other Delinquents. Finn, along with other members of the 100, receives a gun by Miller's dad and Abby before leaving Camp Jaha to look for the others.
In Reapercussions, Finn, Bellamy, Murphy, Sterling and Monroe are out on a mission to find the remaining 100, as they presume they are with The Grounders. As they continue their mission, they come across a group of grounders who were cast out by their clan. Finn and the rest take one of the grounders with one eye back to a secure area to question him. When the Grounder eventually reveals where their location is, the group argues about what to do with him. As the fight continues however, Finn eventually shoots the grounder in the head, killing him instantly, and says they have to continue their mission.
In Many Happy Returns, Finn's group stumbles upon a crash site of many of the ark survivors, finding a trail of dead bodies. As they reach a cliff, they find a girl named Mel. Finn recommends that they leave her, but Sterling is more concerned about saving her. Unfortunately for Sterling, the rope he used to climb down breaks, causing Sterling to fall and kill him on impact. Ultimately Bellamy climbs down to save the girl, with Finn Murphy and Monroe. While the group pulls the two up, grounders start shooting at Murphy and Finn, while Monroe draws a gun and begins to shoot. However the group is saved by Octavia who blew the fog horn. With Monroe and Mel in critical condition, Murphy and Finn go after the rest of the 100 while the rest head back to Camp Jaha.
In Human Trials, Finn and Murphy are first seen scoping out the grounder camp they were sent to find the 100 at. When they finally sneak into the camp, Finn causes a distraction by burning the food supply. When they are caught, they draw guns on the grounders and put them all in the pen. While Murphy is assigned to guarding the grounders, Finn searches for hours on end finding any trail of the 100. Finn finally finds coats of the 100, and starts question the grounders. Nyko, a grounder in the village tries to explain to them that the 100 are not at the camp, but struggles to also calm down his own people. Once Nyko explained to Finn who the man with one eye was, Finn and Murphy abandon the camp. This is stopped however when a grounder tries to escape, causing Finn to shoot him down. This causes a riot, with many grounders charging at Finn out of rage. Finn continues to Massacre the many grounders charging at him, causing him to kill/injure at least a dozen of them. He finally stops when Clarke arrives, however when he tries to get close to her, Clarke is frightened by what Finn has done, as well as Bellamy, Octavia and Murphy.
In Fog of War, Finn is first seen exiting Alpha station. He goes to join Clarke, Bellamy and eventually Murphy. Finn tries to explain to the others that what he did was necessary. Finn is later seen walking with the others on their mission to Mount Weather. They say they shouldn't have brought him with them, but Bellamy says they need him because he is their best tracker. Eventually the group finds mount weather through binoculars, and makes camp. Finn is then seen trying to go after Bellamy and Octavia, shortly after they separate from the group. Raven tries to stop him, but this only frustrates Finn and causes him to run off. Clarke chases after him, and Finn tries to explain to her that everything that happened to the grounders he killed was an accident. During their conversation, the acidic fog returned, causing both of them to run away and back into the hidden bunker. In the bunker, they find Delano's dead body, with Clarke looking in disgust. Though Clarke seems displeased, Finn manages to somewhat redeem himself to Clarke by giving her back her fathers watch. Despite the gift, Clarke stares at Delano's body for a while, and says to Finn that she does not know who he is anymore. Eventually Finn and Clarke return to camp.
In Long Into an Abyss, Finn is first seen telling Clarke that he will update Clarke on whether or not Camp Jaha will abandon their base. Later when he arrives at the dropship to check on Clarke, he is quickly pinned against a wall by an angry Nyko. Nyko calls him a murderer, and deserves to die. Finn, on the other hand has little to no reaction to Nyko attacking him, and Finn is quickly saved by the others. Later, Finn is mentioned by Lexa, who says she wants him to die in order for the grounder conflict to finally be resolved.
In Spacewalker, Finn is shown through many flashbacks, revealing his past life on The Ark. He and Raven are shown to have had a very strong relationship. It also reveals how Finn was arrested, as he allowed Raven to Spacewalk as a birthday gift, which ended with Finn taking the blame and him ending up in Jail. When Clarke arrives back at Camp Jaha after speaking with the grounder commander, who says that they have to give up Finn. This results in riots from Arkers who say Finn should die for costing The Ark 3 months worth of oxygen. Murphy is then seen trying to cheer up Murphy, which only ends up scaring Finn even more. When Abby finally comes to the conclusion that they might have to sacrifice Finn, Bellamy and Clarke help him escape back to the Dropship in order to hide from both the grounders and Ark citizens.
On their way to the dropship, Clarke and Finn are ambushed by a grounder. Clarke gets knocked out, but Finn manages to pull a gun on the grounder, however he does not shoot him, only telling him to leave, which the grounder does. When they arrive at the dropship, Finn comes across Raven and Bellamy. Murphy then walks in, and everyone tries to help Clarke. When Clarke wakes up, she tries to comfort Finn and tell him that everything will be okay, but Finn denies it. Soon it was revealed that Raven only wanted Murphy there to turn hi over to the grounders, but everyone stops her in her attempt. Finn then diverges a plan to defend the dropship from the grounders, however he tricks everyone and turns himself in.
When Clarke finally finds him outside Camp Jaha about to be executed, she tries desperately to convince Lexa to let him go, but Lexa denies her request. Clarke and Finn share a final kiss, and then secretly stabs Finn to prevent him from suffering a painful death from the grounders.
Finn Collins is a well built teenage boy. He has light-dark brown hair that reaches just above his chin, until in His Sister's Keeper, Raven cuts it about an inch shorter. His eyes are the color of dark brown, blending into the color of his face.
Finn is introduced as a reckless, 'bad boy;' always on the verge for a blast of adrenaline and always looking for danger. He is quite protective of Clarke and the decisions she makes, always sticking by her side and helping her out whenever she needs help. Finn is always running, looking for fun and adventure; he is playful, cunning and amusing. Later in the series, he seems to become more peaceful, avoiding killing people and trying to form a peace treaty with the Grounders.
In Season Two, Finn starts to toe the line between what is right and wrong. After losing 'his' people and Clarke, he begins to feel desperate and afraid, exhibiting signs of mental duress. These feelings erupt when he executes the one-eyed grounder who drew them a map to Lincoln's village, which he takes hostage thinking that his friends were being held there. During the hostage situation Finn's mental state deteriorates even further, to the point he can no longer tell for himself that what he's doing isn't necessary and that it will make relations with the Grounders even more uneasy. This instability culminates after Murphy convinces Finn to walk away, when the captive villagers try to escape prematurely. Finn, still convinced they're his enemies, relentlessly shoots down the ones who run. When Clarke, Bellamy and Octavia arrive on the scene, they are as shocked by his actions as he is by their sudden appearance.
Clarke Griffin Edit
- Main article: Clarke and Finn
- "Clarke, I love you. I'm in love with you."
- - Finn to Clarke.[src]
Finn and Clarke were good friends and had romantic feelings for each other. In Pilot, Finn flirts with Clarke throughout the trip to Mount Weather. In Earth Skills, the two search for evidence of Jasper's whereabouts. After finding him, they return him to camp. In Earth Kills, Finn, Clarke and Wells look for medicine to help Jasper out, but are forced to flee when the poisonous fog rolls in. They take cover in a buried vehicle and bond about having fun. Later on, Finn tells Clarke that Wells loves her and that she should forgive him.
In Murphy's Law, Finn and Clarke are tasked with protecting Wells' murderer, Charlotte, and take cover in a buried bunker. After watching Charlotte commit suicide, Finn and Clarke return to the buried bunker and have sex. In Twilight's Last Gleaming, the two sit under the stars and look up, seeing Raven's pod, which they believe to be a shooting star. When Finn finds Raven at the pod's wreck, he shows affection towards his girlfriend from the Ark and that upsets Clarke. Finn apologizes to Clarke for this. In Contents Under Pressure, Clarke helps Finn out with his high fever. She removes the knife and later uses an antidote made by Lincoln to cure him. Clarke hugs Finn when he awakens. Throughout the rest of the season, Finn seems to have more feelings for Clarke than he does for Raven. He holds her hand during the meeting with the Grounders in Unity Day, and catches her when she falls in I Am Become Death, knowing that she has an illness that can be fatal and is highly contagious. Raven breaks up with him because she believes he loves Clarke more than he loves her, and later on in We Are Grounders (Part 1) Finn explains that he is in love with Clarke, however she rejects him because he broke her heart.
Wells Jaha Edit
Finn and Wells had a stable relationship. In Pilot, Murphy and Mbege attempt to fight Wells, but Finn interjects. He knocks them both down, saving Wells. In Earth Skills, Finn, Clarke and Wells work together to find Jasper, as he has been taken by the Grounders. In Earth Kills, Finn, Clarke and Wells look for medicine for Jasper after finding him and get caught by the poisonous fog. The three flee into a buried vehicle and when Finn finds whiskey, Wells says alcohol is toxic. Finn brushes it off with a sarcastic comment. Later that day, Finn tells Clarke to forgive Wells and says that Wells is a good person. In Murphy's Law, Finn seems slightly upset by Wells' death.
John Murphy Edit
In the beginning Finn and Murphy don't have much in common personality-wise, as seen in Pilot when Finn knocks him down after he and Mbege attack Wells. After that, they do not interact much until Murphy's Law. While Murphy is being beaten, Finn watches in shock and tries to help him when the other kids attempt to have him hanged. After watching Charlotte commit suicide, Finn witnesses Murphy's banishment from camp and seems sympathetic. He leaves a knife for Murphy to survive with, as opposed to nothing at all.
Bellamy Blake Edit
Finn and Bellamy had a neutral relationship and mutual respect for one another. However, in Twilight's Last Gleaming, Finn confronts Bellamy after he tosses Raven's radio into a river. His words result in Bellamy forming a search party for the radio. In recent episodes there seems to be some chemistry between the two. In His Sister's Keeper, Finn volunteers to help Bellamy in the search for Octavia, even sustaining a wound during a confrontation with the Grounder Lincoln. Bellamy is shown as being quite concerned over Finn's life when they realize he's poisoned, even going so far as to torture Lincoln to get the antidote. Finn seems to share the sentiment, as he leaves Clarke's side during the battle with the Grounders at the drop ship in order to save Bellamy from being killed by Tristan. Over the course of the second season we see them grow more trusting of each other, conferring before making decisions.
- Main article: Finn and Raven
Raven and Finn were dating before the 100 were sent down to Earth. They met when they were younger when Finn shared food with Raven because her mother would sell her rations in exchange for moonshine. Raven risked her life to come down to Earth to finally be back with Finn again by updating a 100-year-old space pod and going down to Earth with it. She finds out that Clarke and Finn had sex and is upset, but does not hate either of them for it, because Finn assumed he would never see her again. She is upset when Finn is injured at the end of His Sister's Keeper. In Day Trip, Raven sneaks into his cabin, and they sleep together. When she is injured, Finn tells her that he will always love her, and she replies that though that may be true, he still does not love her like she wants him to. It results in their break-up, but they remain close throughout the following episodes regardless.
Finn had been stabbed and poisoned by Lincoln in self-defense. Even when tortured, Lincoln refused to tell the Delinquents the antidote to save Finn, and only did so when Octavia risked her own life by cutting herself with the same poisoned knife used to stab Finn. Despite this and what his friends and girlfriend had said, he still forgave Lincoln for what he had done.
