If you remember, Lincoln offered himself up after hearing that Chancellor Pike was going to kill the rest of the Grounders he had locked up. Lincoln was shot in the head and Pike left his body behind in a puddle of mud.
However, Octavia gave him a proper Trikru funeral in Arkadia and avenged his death by killing Pike later on.

Marie Avgeropoulos is opening up about the shocking death of Lincoln (Ricky Whittle) on The 100 this season.
We caught up with the Canadian actress on the carpet at the 2016 CW Upfronts where she looked back on the Octavia-Lincoln relationship.
“Of course, myself as an actress I was so sad to see Ricky Whittle go,” Marie told JJJ. “He’s a wonderful man and we have a great friendship. That romance was so deserved. They made so many epic sacrifices for one another. It was the classic, forbidden Romeo and Juliet romance. That’s the way it started and that’s the way it ended. It was horrible and beautiful all at the same time. That’s all they kept doing, is sacrificing their lives for one another. That’s exactly how the story ended and I feel like that chapter in a respectful way, in terms of the romance.”
As for the future, Marie said, “Next season, you’re going to see Octavia take a lot of really dark turns and uncover some really nasty layers. That will be exciting for me as an actress. She’s always evolving and changing.”
Earlier in the year, Ricky claimed he was “bullied” off the show.
The 100 is set to return in 2017.

Their new Starz show starts filming this week and follows a recently released ex-convict named Shadow who meets a mysterious man who calls himself “Wednesday,” and who knows more than he first seems to about Shadow’s life and past.
Earlier this month, Ricky claimed that he was “bullied” off The 100 by executive producer Jason Rothenberg.
Ricky Whittle suits up sharp for the American Idol Finale held at Dolby Theatre on Thursday night (April 7) in Hollywood.
The 34-year-old actor joined Kirstina Colonna, Stephanie Berk and Co-CEO FremantleMedia North America Craig Cegielski for the big event.
“Great fun with @KirstinaColonna @MrCegielski #stephanieberk #mike at last nights American idol finale #AGfam,” Ricky shared on Twitter later with a fun group shot from the after party.
Ricky, who starts filming American Gods later this summer for Starz, publicly called out his former boss, The 100 showrunner Jason Rothenberg, for bullying him off the show.
Showrunner Jason Rothenberg has released a statement after Ricky Whittle‘s bullying comments made headlines on the internet.
Ricky, who played Lincoln on The 100, has stated that Jason “bullied” him off the series.
“He [Jason] chose to belittle me and neglect my character and myself. I often had questions and emails were ignored and things like that. It was ridiculous. … That’s one thing that I’ll never forgive him for: He made me walk away from something I really love,” Ricky stated in the interview.
Jason shared in a statement, “Ricky Whittle is a talented actor; I appreciate his work on The 100 and wish him all the best moving forward on American Gods.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK about this situation about The 100?
It looks like there was something to Ricky Whittle‘s mom’s tweets after all!
The 34-year-old actor spoke with AfterBuzzTV (via TVGuide) after Lincoln’s fate was dealt on the show last week.
“At the beginning of the season, he was not supposed to die. He had a whole story line that was cut, that was just nonexistent. It was my choice to go,” Ricky shared. “This is going to be the most controversial thing I will say, is that basically Jason Rothenberg abused his position to make my job untenable. What he did was disgusting and he should be ashamed.”
He added, “A lot was made of something my mom said all over Twitter, but everything she said was true. He was professionally bullying me, cutting out all the story line that I was supposed to be doing, cutting lines, cutting everything out, trying to make my character and myself as insignificant as possible.”
Ricky continued about how Lincoln was written out of the show: “He [Jason] chose to belittle me and neglect my character and myself. I often had questions and emails were ignored and things like that. It was ridiculous. … That’s one thing that I’ll never forgive him for: He made me walk away from something I really love. I love Lincoln. I love the show. I love that cast and crew. He forced me to make that choice, to walk away. And I’m proud I did it, I stood up and said, ‘Enough’s enough.’ My personal well-being is more important than this.”
Jason has not commented on the situation as of yet.

We’re not sure if we want to see Ricky Whittle leave The 100 for good…but his mom’s tweets are making us worry.
If you didn’t know, the 34-year-old actor was cast as Shadow in Starz’ upcoming American Gods small-screen adaption which will start filming in April. Does that mean he’s off The 100 for good, or not?
While no official word or statement has been released, Ricky‘s mom has implied that he has left the show because of “bullies” and goes on to criticize shworunner and executive producer, Jason Rothenberg.
“Finally got full story from my son, @JRothenbergTV should be ashamed! Disgusting behaviour from grown man & one in ‘power to an honest person,” his mom writes in one tweet.
She continued, “Even as a boy Rick always stood up for himself & others against bullies, I’m proud he continued this trend & glad karma rewarded him. I hope he shares the sad truth so u all understand why he had to walk away. Nobody should have to deal with bullies alone, talk to someone.”
