Those left alive on the Ark after the nuclear apocalypse knew that returning to Earth would be difficult, just not this difficult. Not only did they have to find food, water and shelter to survive, but as it turns out there was also wildlife and even other humans waiting for them on the ground. No one could have predicted the power struggle they would find below between all those left behind or how it’s become even worse now under A.L.I.E.’s control.
While the rest of us here in the present deal with so called ‘first world problems,’ the world of THE 100 has always been a matter of life and death. Fight to survive the Grounders, fight to outlive the Mountain Men and now fight for their freedom from A.L.I.E. It’s been a rough season of death and betrayal, but now is not the time to give in and give up.
In this week’s episode, titled “Join or Die,” they’ll each have to make that exact decision for themselves. Everyone has reached their breaking point, but what they do next could change everything. As Pike reminds the delinquents in flashback, “The key is to keep fighting! Against all odds!” For Clarke this may mean joining with Bellamy to get their people back. Yet for Kane this means not joining Abby and giving his people and mind up to A.L.I.E.
Because as Pike also tells the delinquents in flashback, “The minute you give up, you’re dead.”
Can Clarke and Bellamy put their differences aside and join together for the greater good? What does Murphy have planned to ensure his survival at Polis? And will Kane give into A.L.I.E.’s demands?
Don’t miss tonight’s episode of THE 100 airing at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
