My favorite scenes from The Tribe series 3  

Inspired by nemesisofamor. Some text taken from Tribal Digest

9. "You'll never break me"
I think this scene is visually simply astounding. This is pretty much the only scene that made to the list not because of some seriously awesome acting or great lines, but because it had pretty colors... although the hand gesture Bray gives to the blank screen was kind of hilarious. That whole "Let's-torture-Bray" storyline always makes me think of why on earth did Goldilocks thought he needed Bray in on his campaign anyway. They already had the city and he wasn't Zoot. Were they gonna put him handing out flayers? Would have been easier just to waste him in the first place.

8. Naughty grapes
Tai-San: Ah, so clumsy of me!
Guardian: Here, let me.

I love crazy!Guardian, he's so much fun. I personally enjoyed their debates and Tai-San's devotion to Mallrats and yet her obvious curiosity in how far she could go for the greater good.

7. Trudy goes ballistic
Trudy: Have you lost you mind?
Guardian: A little fresh air!
Trudy: In the park, with no guards?!
Guardian: You'll have a nursemaid, and I'm sending May along with you.
Trudy: Oh! Well that's all right then!
Guardian: Trust me, you'll be perfectly safe. And it will be a chance for you to spend a little time alone with the Princess. That's what you wanted isn't it?
Trudy: Do I have a choice?

Trudy and Guardian had a perfect scenes here. And I loved the shots of their up-close faces although I think Trudy being unstable and screaming or crying for the majority of season was rather annoying.

6. All hell breaks loose
Guardian: Impostor! Traitor! Deceiver! It's all your doing!
Trudy: What is?
Guardian: Everything. You were never the True Supreme Mother!
Trudy: I never wanted to be. You forced me. You brainwashed me. I just wanted to save my baby!
Guardian: Tai-San was the real Supreme Mother. She stayed true to me to the end. She was sent by Zoot!
Guardian: I must destroy the False Mother - eliminate her from the face of the earth - her and all blasphemers!
Trudy: Have you forgotten who I am?
Guardian: You are nobody, nothing!
Trudy: I was Zoot's woman. I am the Mother of His Child. He wouldn't want to hurt me!
Guardian: You betrayed him. He wants vengeance - VENGEANCE!
Trudy: No, and He wouldn't want to hurt Amber either. She is carrying his brother's baby, a child of His blood!
Guardian: The child of a blasphemer. Zoot will not be denied. YOU MUST ALL DIE!
Trudy: NOOOOO!

It was great to see Trudy back to her right senses and actually fighting back for once. But the real gem here is again, Crazy!Guardian. And I don't even like the character. Go figure. Damon Andrews is just a brilliant actor. And one of the few sweet moments of the season: Trudy and Amber reunite with their loved ones. Amber was brilliant there. Locking eyes with Bray and not speaking a word. Sweet.

5. "Save your breath"
Bray: Whatever it is, you can save your breath. [Dramatic pause. He turns to face her] You're still here?
Ebony: Make things more difficult, why don't you?
Bray: Me? That's your specialty.
Ebony: I didn't come for a fight.
Bray: Yeah? What did you come for then - a gloat? A good sneer? A laugh?
I don't know how you get your kicks these days, Ebony - quite frankly I don't care.

Ebony: I came to say thanks.
Bray: Yeah? For what?
Ebony: Pulling me out.
Bray: I would have done it for a dog! It so happens it was you. I reckon that makes us even.
Ebony: Even!
Bray: Now if you'll excuse me, I'm busy.

Dwayne is one of the best actors on the show, hands down. The fact that he is handsome as hell, is just a bonus. This is his shining moment for me. He's not apologizing, not trying to be the better person, not making puppy-eyes or trying to lead people or trying to do the right thing. This is what he is. Right there. Just human. (With a good heart even if he doesn't admit it.)

4. Power parade and dead hopes
You got to admit - those were pretty powerful scenes. Bray dressed up as Zoot and Salene's breakdown. How could you not feel for her pain? Tragic. Awesome.

Btw... what did they do with the bomb anyway?

3. "Same old Jack. Suspicious of everyone"
Trudy: Jack, you have every right to be angry. I understand, believe me.
Jack: I don't see how you can understand, Trudy. Not unless you have just been told your best friend is dead.
Remember the Chosen? Weren't you their spiritual leader for a while back there? Or was I just dreaming that?

Trudy: Jack, I was kidnapped, just like you.
Jack: Yeah but the difference between you and me Trudy is that you bought that garbage.
You sold out your friends and you were glad to do it.

Jack is one of the best guys on the show and Michael is just awesome in every scene he is in. I loved that he was didn't just "oh well" forgive her, but spoke his mind. He was angry and rightfully so.

2. Checkmate
I actually was not sad to see Dal go. I mean, this scene was sad and really emotional, but I wasn't invested in his story all that much. This scene made it to the list because of the awesome scenery and so many different shots. And look at the colors! So vibrant and alive! And it was shot outdoors! There aren't enough scenes filmed outside the mall or outside the buildings for my taste. And even less of the looted city. I actually liked to see someone dying for once - like, on screen. That way they can't rise from the dead. Disappearance acts are so frikkin' annoying.

1. Faceoff
Bray: Get out of the way, Moz.
Pride: Bad, bad timing.
Moz: We're gonna get him. You'll see.

My fave scenes evah. Sooo emotional. Confrontation with Moz is one of the best of the season. If you watch it closely, she does this face after Pride tells her to back off for her own good. Major lol. She's great in there. My fave part picks up again in the Mall where Pride eventually blames Bray for making all the wrong decisions and basically being a bad leader. They get into a very bad fight and it takes Ned and Lex to brake them apart. Awesome scene. Bray finally loses control and realizes he has lost his baby and the love of his life. Superb acting from everyone.

Sad scene

I love you, I don't say that often enough, do I? ;)
Couldn't agree more with #1, #4, #5, #8, #9

5 was AWESOME! Why couldn't we see more of THAT Bray? Though I'd say Dwayne's best acting is 9. Plus, I see why the G would want to have him on his side. He's popular enough to lead the city kids into a fight, he is Zoot's brother and therefore interesting AND he has such a pretty biceps - and the shoulders... you can say that's irrelevant as much as you like, but the Guardian will come out of the closet eventually! Plus he didn't sleep with both Tai San and Trudy when they offered, that guy is SO gay!

8 was one of the scenes I almost included, 1 is also great, but I don't like the freak out so much, since it comes down to "Bray is nothing without Amber", which is a little annoying since she's apparently doing so great when he disappears.
LOVE the pic of Bray touching Pride's face though. It's a little "Sush, don't talk now! We'll always have Paris!" or something. Those two... so cute.

I haven't got that far in S3 but in that picture it looks like the G has his hand down (or going to put it) down Tai-Sans shirt and looks PISSED he was interrupted.

So are we sure he's in the closet?
Sarate: amber00s00 on March 22nd, 2010 03:48 pm (UTC)
Haha.. he was, he was pissed! He's a total closet case.
Sarate: amber00s00 on March 22nd, 2010 03:46 pm (UTC)
Feeeel the love sista! :P Agreed - Bray was totally awesome in nr5.
Hahahaa! Right you are about Goldy. I had my suspicions there too.

This makes me want to watch that season again. It was such a good one.
Sarate: amber00s00 on March 22nd, 2010 03:51 pm (UTC)
It was, really. Well, mostly. Ah hell, it had some decent scenes at least. :P

Veeeery cool.

#9 I always wanted to know who was Zoot's photographer in the first place? Did Ebony set him up for a shoot or was it just stalker Jaffa/Gaurdian sneaking around with a polaroid whenever he could?
#8 The grapes. HA! They made like 2 miniscule drops of moisture on her shirt and he offered to clean it up. Still makes me laugh.
#7 I like when Trudy was all Righeous!Suprememother-y. And those point of view shots of their faces cracked me up.
#5 Sometimes when Bray goes off on Ebony I feel bad for her. I don't know why I always forget just how much she's put that guy through. And he always ends up forgiving her eventually. Why does she keep screwing him and then being shocked when he doesn't jump at the chance to accept her offer of partnership/coupledom/whatever-it-is-she's-offering-this-time?
#4 While Salene annoyed me, her descent was realistic and I'm glad they went all the way with it. Also, it must have been difficult for Bray to play the part of his dead brother. But can I just say he really looked hawt!
#3 Prob'ly my number 2 all time favorite moment. Michael is just spot on with the emotion he needs to portray in that scene. It was beautiful, touching, cold, hurtful and sincere. I felt bad for Trudy but I thought his reaction was one of the most honest of anyone affected by the Chosen.
#2 Dal's death never touched me much. I cried more over Bob to be honest. But I did love Dal and thought they gave him a warrior's burial. I too was glad to see another death on screen. Brought the danger and risks they were facing closer to home. But what was up with his last words? Something about acorns?
#1 I love when Bray's being an asshole :) His temper tantrum was epic.
Sarate: amber00s00 on March 23rd, 2010 08:51 am (UTC)
Hahaha... good one. It really was weird that they had all those pictures... who developed them?
Bray was awesome! :P
nemesisofamor: trudynemesisofamor on April 1st, 2010 01:35 pm (UTC)
Just to ask... will you do that for other seasons, too? :D
Sarate: hugs00s00 on April 4th, 2010 08:03 am (UTC)
:P Too much hassle I guess. But in time, why not. It is fun.
