Skaikru’s work is never done. After saving the 12 clans and themselves from A.L.I.E. last season, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy (Bob Morley) now have their work cut out for them as they try to prevent the destruction of the whole world. Only they can’t tell anyone about how the nuclear power plants are melting down or risk massive widespread panic, and that’s just one of many burdens they must bear in this week’s episode of THE 100, “Heavy Lies the Crown.”
Their first mission back in the real world takes them to Farm Station in the Ice Nation where a hydro generator could supply enough fresh water to keep everyone alive for centuries while they all ride out the nuclear fallout. However, the generator is also filled with hydrazine and could explode at any moment, which could prove handy if Bellamy instead chooses to use it to free the slaves being held captive there. In the end, it’ll be up to him to decide who will live and who will die.
Meanwhile back at Polis, the Grounders there aren’t happy that Skaikru has been named the 13th clan by King Roan (Zach McGowan). Some, including newcomer Ilian (Chai Romruen), who lost his family to A.L.I.E., are secretly plotting a coup while Roan is still weak and easily overthrown. Unfortunately for Kane (Henry Ian Cusack) and Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos), the King is the only thing currently standing in the way between the 12 clans, Skaikru and total destruction.
