Speaking with Collider, Bob dished about his character’s past mistakes and how he handles them.
“It’s absolutely going to affect the way he handles situations. He’s carrying around so much guilt,” Bob shares. “Kane was trying to say to him at the end of the first episode, ‘Okay, you’ve done some bad things, but if you keep carrying that weight around it’s not going to have a positive impact on the rest of what you’re trying to achieve.’…I think he tries to take on Kane’s word as much as he can, but there’s always that underlying current of him feeling like he has become something that he despises.”
Bob adds about how Bellamy will handle it: “People have a tendency to do that– to go the polar opposite of what they’ve done before if they’ve felt like they’ve done something wrong. There is definitely– he definitely has the ability to go to the other extreme. Bellamy kind of rocks between the two and he doesn’t always balance and that’s where the tension is for him usually.”
In “Heavy Lies The Crown”, the burden of leading weighs heavily upon Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy when different challenges force them to determine who will live and die.
