Fans of THE 100 are not going to want to miss tonight’s new episode. In “Die All, Die Merrily,” a battle to the death between Skaikru, Trikru, Azgeda and the other clans will decide who gets to ride out the coming apocalypse in the Second Dawn bunker. The episode is helmed by longtime The 100 director Dean White and written by executive producers Aaron Ginsburg and Wade McIntyre, who are all well known for creating memorable episodes of the series.
In the conclave, Octavia is representing Team Skaikru. We’ll have to wait and see how the battle turns out for everyone involved, but one good thing is it will bring Octavia and Bellamy together. The Blake siblings have spent most of the season on the outs with each other. However, they’ll become allies as Octavia tries to unite the clans to stop a war. It’s a big episode for the character, and Marie Avgeropoulos has said the episode was her favorite of the season to film.
Yet Octavia doesn’t actually stand a chance against all these warriors who have been training since birth. The big battle is made even more harrowing because some of those fighting are characters we’ve already met. Ilian, Roan and Luna all enter the arena at Polis for different reasons, and not all of them will survive. Jason Rothenberg has promised there will be deaths. The question is how many?
Watch some sneak peeks from the new episode below. THE 100 airs tonight (May 3) at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
