THE 100 Sneak Peek: Survival Requires Sacrifice

the 100

As we head into the second half of season 4 of THE 100, the situation on the ground is only getting worse. Last week’s plan to go into space and make Nightblood so that everyone can survive the coming radiation abruptly ended when Clarke, Bellamy and King Roan lost a barrel of hydrazine on their way to Becca’s Island. Without the necessary amount of fuel to power the rocket, they’re all now permanently stuck on Earth.

So it’s time to change directions yet again, and Abby’s next plan could turn deadly. In this week’s episode, titled “Gimme Shelter,” the good doctor wants to continue running tests for a possible cure to the radiation, but she’s going to need a human test subject. Her plan requires injecting someone with Luna’s bone marrow, then exposing that person to massive amounts of radiation. If it doesn’t work though, and they won’t know until they try, that person will suffer a painful death. Clarke and Abby must make a choice on whether to go forward.

Back at Arkadia, the black rain they’ve planned for has finally arrived, and it will push everyone to their limits. Trapped together in what’s left of the Ark, families and loved ones will be separated from those left outside, including Octavia. Bellamy heads out into the storm in search of his sister. Emotions are running high, and everyone will have to face some uncomfortable truths by the end of the night.

THE 100 Sneak Peek: Clarke and Roan Defend Mankind’s Last Chance for Survival

the 100

The pressure to survive the coming nuclear apocalypse is mounting, and in this week’s new episode of THE 100 we’ll see if Skaikru can rise to the occasion. But in the meantime, it seems like everything that could go wrong has gone wrong so far.

First, their plan to get a hydro-generator and create water wasn’t successful. Then they thought they’d have six months to come up with another solution, but people are already starting to suffer from radiation sickness. They’ve also lost the flame, their bargaining chip to keep King Roan (Zach McGowan) and the Grounders at bay. Instead, Roan has declared war on Skaikru. And just as Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Roan came to an agreement last week to share safe haven at Arkadia, their beloved ship is burned to the ground.

To make matters worse, Raven (Lindsey Morgan) and Abby (Paige Turco), who are searching for a cure on Becca’s island, have both suddenly become sick from ALIE’s chip. But the fight must go on! On Wednesday’s episode, titled “We Will Rise,” Clarke and Roan will need to work together in hostile territory to deliver the last ten barrels of explosive hydrazine to Abby. They’ll travel over rough terrain with Bellamy (Bob Morley) in tow for the survival of all mankind.

Meanwhile on Becca’s island, Raven isn’t having much luck either, running simulation after simulation to try and take a rocket back to what’s left of the Ark. There they hope to be able to recreate Becca’s experiments and make Nightblood in zero gravity. She’ll only have 75% fuel to make it, and so far all Raven can do is crash and burn.

The CW Renews THE 100 for Season 5

the 100

There’s some good news for fans of THE 100: the show has been renewed for a fifth season. The show currently airs as a 13 episode midseason series, but there’s no word yet on how many episodes season 5 will have or will the show will return next season.

THE 100 currently airs on Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

The CW also recently made the announcement that freshman drama RIVERDALE has been renewed for a second season, in addition to the earlier announcements that seven of the network’s shows have already been renewed for the 2017-2018 season. Currently the future of THE ORIGINALS, FREQUENCY, iZOMBIE and NO TOMORROW are unknown.

THE 100 Sneak Peek: Clarke Makes a Deal for Bellamy and Kane’s Lives

the 100

As Skaikru continues to search Becca’s Island for ways to avert the coming nuclear apocalypse on THE 100, their troubles are just beginning back at home with the Grounders. King Roan (Zach McGowan), who believes he’s been betrayed, is marching an army toward Arkadia, intent on taking their ship to save his own people. Clarke (Eliza Taylor) is now fighting a war for survival on two fronts, and she’s going to need all the help she can get if they want to stay alive.

In this week’s new episode, titled “The Tinder Box,” an almost dead Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) manages to warn her people about Azgeda, just in time for Clarke to race against the clock and come up with a plan to stop Roan’s soldiers. Clarke will make a desperate plea to a former allied force with Bellamy (Bob Morley) and Kane’s (Henry Ian Cusack) lives hanging in the balance.

Elsewhere, Abby (Paige Turco) and Eric (Sachin Sahel) aren’t making much progress in figuring out how to use Nightblood to protect everyone from radiation. They’ll have much bigger problems to worry about though when Raven (Lindsey Morgan) starts having a bad reaction to her new abilities brought on by A.L.I.E.’s chip.

THE 100 Sneak Peek: Raven and John Fight for Survival

the 100

Everyone has secrets, and that’s even more true on THE 100. In Arkadia, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy (Bob Morley) have secretly made a list of the 100 people they’ve chosen to survive the nuclear fallout, while the rest of the camp continues working towards a solution — unaware of their fate. Elsewhere in Polis, everyone except Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) and Indra (Adina Porter) now believe the Flame has been destroyed (rather than it was stolen), leaving King Roan (Zach McGowan) with a precariously weak hold on the throne.

And it’s all only get to worse before it gets better. But thankfully in this week’s episode, titled “A Lie Guarded,” there is some hope. As struggles with leadership and trust turn to violence in Arkadia and Polis, Abby (Paige Turco) leads a team to Becca’s island looking for answers. Raven (Lindsey Morgan), John (Richard Harmon), Emori (Luisa D’Oliveira), Nathan (Jarod Joseph) and Luna (Nadia Hilker) join her to see if Nightblood can help everyone weather the coming storm.

Meanwhile, Octavia’s decision to let Indra’s daughter, Gaia, take the Flame will have serious repercussions. King Rowan believes he’s been betrayed and that Skaikru are planning to replace him with a true Commander. As a result, Octavia will find herself going up against Echo (Tasya Teles), sending her further down a dark path.

THE 100 Sneak Peek: Jaha Leads Clarke and Bellamy To Possible Salvation

the 100

Time is running out for everyone on THE 100. Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy (Bob Morley) thought they’d have around six months to save the Skaikru and Grounders from the coming nuclear fallout. But in tonight’s new episode, titled “The Four Horsemen,” they’ll quickly realize the end of days are already here.

After their plan to get a hydro generator from Farm Station failed last week, Arcadia’s chances of surviving the apocalypse aren’t looking so good right now. It’s all about to get much worse, too, when Luna (Nadia Hilker) and her Boat People suddenly show up already suffering from ARS (acute radiation sickness). However, help may come from the unlikeliest of places as Jaha (Isaiah Washington) claims he knows the location of a fallout shelter that could save a lot more than a hundred people. Question is can he be trusted and what does he want in return.

Elsewhere in Polis, tensions are continuing to rise, and to make matters worse it seems King Roan (Zach McGowan) has lost the flame. He puts Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos), who is now notoriously known as a killer and called the ‘Sky Ripper,” in charge of finding out who took it and getting it back. But her new role of assassin may also put her at odds with her mentor, Indra (Adina Porter). Thankfully, she’ll become allies with someone new this episode, though reportedly “neither of the two quite trust each other.”

THE 100 Sneak Peek: Bellamy Faces an Impossible Choice

the 100

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.

THE 100: Marie Avgeropoulos Teases Octavia’s Continuing Evolution in Season 4

the 100

There is a rebellion building in Polis in this week’s episode of THE 100 and Octavia is going to take on a big role among the Grounders as her evolution from arker to grounder continues. Over the years since members of the 100 touched down on earth, we’ve seen Octavia go from a girl who was hidden aboard the ark to a young warrior and that will be continuing in season 4.

During a visit to the set of THE 100 in the fall, Marie Avgeropoulos spoke to journalists about what’s in store for Olivia.

Lincoln’s Death Still Affects Her. The death of Octavia’s boyfriend at the hands of Pike last season — as well as Octavia’s subsequent murder of Pike — will continue to affect her going forward. “Octavia’s never received any love from any men before other than Bellamy, so to have such a love like that enter her life and then leave so horrifically, it affected her in a really negative way. And, I don’t know, the only way I can really relate it to is like when people use substance abuse or alcohol abuse to deal with things that affected them in bad ways to sort of numb that pain, Octavia does that by executing people and killing them and just you know, using that as an out to not feel things. That’s her next drink, that’s her next drug, so when she does snap out of that it’s a pretty awakening moment for Octavia, and allows for some, you know, real souls searching and almost grieving again for a second time.”

A New Alliance. When asked if Octavia will continue to grow in season 4, Marie crypitcally replied “I can’t tell you if it’s in a positive or negative way, but you do see Octavia and Roan come together and form an alliance that maybe even becomes broken at one point too, so you can see both sides of the story. You’ll have to tune in.” Clearly whatever this alliance is will continue to propel Octavia forward.

Where Does She Belong? “Octavia…never really belonged with Skaikru or Trikru. She was just a part of The 100 and I feel like she’s used to feeling alone and secluded and on her own. I think that’s when her mind is the clearest, because she has such a different opinion on how things should be run and how alliances should be formed….Specifically in Season 4, because of the fact that her mind is so clouded with the devastation of Lincoln and a lot of points in this season, you can just see her not thinking straight. She’s a very stubborn girl too and just thinks her opinion in that moment is always the right one, when that’s not always the case.”

The Dynamic Between Octavia and Clarke. Eliza Taylor (Clarke) said that “I think Octavia has kind of decided that she doesn’t belong to Arkadia. And she doesn’t belong to the Grounders. She’s kind of become this kind of lone wolf, similar to the way that Clarke did at the beginning of season 3. And I think that there’s a very good mutual understanding there with not feeling like you belong and wanting to just kind of disappear and live your own life. With that in mind, while [Octavia and Clarke] don’t particularly see eye-to-eye on a lot of things, I think there is a very subtle mutual respect. They listen to each other, even if they disagree. And yeah, you’ll definitely see more of that.”

The Siblings Relationship. The relationship between Octavia and Bellamy is one that has certain had its ups and downs through THE 100. Bob Morley (Bellamy) said that “That relationship with Octavia is one that I would really like to see develop into a more adult type relationship as opposed to him berating her and her telling him, ‘You can’t tell me what to do.’ That whole back-and-forth dynamic. With her taking this darker turn [lately[ and it being much more of an emotional turn and an outward expression of that, it’s something that Bellamy has experienced before as well, so there’s a level of understanding there. He expresses that. but there’s also a level of loss. I don’t think he necessarily wanted that for her. He said that at the end of season three when they’re barricading the door, ‘I know what it’s like and I just don’t want this for you.’ And then she makes the choice to kill Pike in the end [of season 3]. That’s an indicator to him that she doesn’t really need his advice or listen to his advice anymore. It’s a bit of a blow for him. At some point you do have to take a backseat with the people you care about – you can’t give them the answer, they have to find it themselves. It’s one of those journeys that will take some time. Lots of healing and water under the bridge. It takes its toll. ”

A New Relationship? “Octavia has a pretty significant interaction with one of the male counterparts in a different tribe this season. I can’t tell you more than that, to give it away. No one will ever replace Lincoln. Let’s just face it, so, you know, don’t freak out,” Marie warned fans of her relationship.

Marie Loves Octavia’s Transformation into a Warrior. “It’s been so much fun and rewarding as an actress since we’ve seen the young, adolescent girl that was trapped underneath the floor, that had to rely on other people to survive, to the girl that’s learned to survive her own, and really developed into her own, now young woman. So she’s been a lot fun to play, especially because I’ve learned such random skills to use in my life playing Marie, you know, sword-fighting horse back riding, not very useful in today’s society, but a lot of fun to play on TV.”

THE 100 Season 4: Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley & Richard Harmon Tease What’s Next for the Arkers

the 100

Clarke made a decision at the end of season 3 of THE 100 that saved people…and may have doomed them at the same time. In choosing to end ALIE and destroy the City of Light, Clarke seems to have condemned humanity to death by radiation as the world’s nuclear plants melt down. As always, Clarke is ready to do what it takes to survive, but season 4 presents the arkers (a.k.a. Skaikru) with a new challenge unlike any they have faced before.

During a visit to the set of THE 100 in Vancouver, Eliza Taylor (Clarke), Bob Morley (Bellamy) and Richard Harmon (Murphy) spoke to journalists and what’s next for the arkers.

The Unseen Enemy. The enemy can’t be seen in season 4 of THE 100, but its effects will absolutely be felt. “This whole season’s mostly based around how we’re going to deal with fighting an enemy that we can’t go to war with. So it’s going to prove very interesting,” Taylor teased. Morley hinted that the impending apocalypse “weighs in quite a lot. It’s a huge factor throughout this season. It’s this impending doom and we all have to figure out how to address that and whether you decide to find a way to get through it or find solutions to live through it or whether you start making a bucket list and just decide to let it wash over you in a literal sense. There’s that existential dilemma of whether we deserve to survive or whether should we live the rest of our lives hedonistically with whatever we have left. That’s definitely the clock that is ticking throughout the season.”

Spreading the Truth. When will Clarke start telling people about what she knows? Some people will be informed quickly, but telling the rest of the world will be done cautiously, Taylor told us. “It’s something that she has to be really careful about because obviously she’s just taken all these people out of a beautiful city that they were happy [in] and brought them back into a world that’s about to end. So she has to be very careful about how she goes about telling people without starting a riot, basically.” However, you will not see Clarke acting like the lone wolf that she was for most of last season. Once she starts telling people, she will be more open to working with others again: “I think you will see more of her relying on her friends and family, which is good because (a) Eliza missed working with them and (b) it’s kind of like the old crew being back together again. It feels like season 1 again, which is awesome.”

Clarke and Bellamy…Together Again. In particular, expect to see Clarke and Bellamy working side-by-side: “They’re a real team and I really like the way their storyline is going,” Taylor said “there’s a lot of mutual respect and they’re sharing the leadership role, so that’s cool.” Be cautious, however, because Morley ominously said “they’re obviously going to go on their own journeys and they’re going to have their own issues that they have to deal with and demons they have to fight. But for the most part in the beginning there is that unity again. But everything that’s peaceful is short-lived on this show. Just wait and see again.”

The Sins of the Past. Bellamy made some bad choices last season and the guilt he feels will not go away quietly, even as he works to atone in season 4. Morley said that “all the decisions he’s made since season one always hang over his head. So [so what happened in season 3 is] just another addition to the amount of guilt and remorse that he has. He’s got a lot of weight on his shoulders and he’s carrying that around but has to find a way to be useful again and to be helpful to those around him that he loves. It’s going to be dealt with, we’re constantly dealing with that stuff. The culling of the 500, Mount Weather. It doesn’t just go away. That’s the great thing about this show, I get to carry around those demons forever. That’s definitely prevalent this season.”

Who is Working Together? In addition to Clarke and Bellamy reuniting, “you’ll see a lot of Bellamy and Kane’s relationship which is really great for me,” Morley said.” I love working with [Henry Ian Cusick]. We have a lot of fun. He’s like, I guess, adopted me as his son or vice versa, maybe I’m the father figure between the two of us. There’s a lot of that stuff, Kane and Bellamy. Obviously the relationship with Octavia is always something that has to be addressed and we address constantly that ever-evolving relationship….There’s a return of the adventure squad of the younger kids as well which is a lot of fun. This season I’ve got to spread myself around a lot and work with a lot of different people which is nice.” Morley also said that “this show loves to pair groups of characters together that you wouldn’t necessarily expect. Ticking clock or not you always see these couplings and these groups that go out that you wouldn’t necessarily imagine being friendly or aggressive or whatever it is, regardless. Obviously the ticking clock [of the apocalypse] is a catalyst to putting these groups together. There’s a whole heap of different groups that you won’t usually see and I think the writing team really likes to explore putting characters together that you wouldn’t expect together.”

Trying to Get Along. Murphy has generally been the guy to look out for number 1, but that may change a bit in season 4. “I think that a big theme of this season is seeing everyone’s true colors when all the chips are on the table,” Harmon said. “This [new apocalypse] is coming. It doesn’t really look like there’s any way we’re going to be able to get around it. It’s probably going to kill us all. What do your favorite characters do with that information? Do some of them actually try to fight against it with almost no hope of survival or do you give up and just enjoy your last couple weeks or months or however long it is on Earth? Speaking for Murphy specifically, I think we’ve seen him be a survivor this entire time. There’s been pretty bad times for him and times when he’s had nothing really to live for and he’s survived anyway just because he doesn’t want to die. I think I can say speaking for him that’s not going to change anytime soon. The guy cares and especially now that he has something to live for in Emori. I think he’s trying to get along with the group a little bit better. I think he’s, now more than ever, finding his place within the 100 team.”

A Stable Relationship? Clarke and Bellamy both lost their significant others last season, but Murphy is still trying to hang on tightly to his, according to Harmon: “We’re going to see a relationship [between Murphy and Emori] that is strained through the adversity of knowing the world is coming to an end. I think that’s a hell of thing to put any relationship through, but I know those two really care about each other. They’re two outsiders that have finally become insiders through each other. It’s a really beautiful thing and I’d like to take a second to acknowledge how amazing Luisa D’Oliveira is who plays Emori. One of my favorite teammates I’ve ever had on set. We just work really well together. I think that shows a lot on screen in the chemistry that we have and I’m really excited for fans to see where we’re going with that.”

THE 100: The Cast Teases What’s Next for the Grounders in Season 4


We learned a lot about the Grounders in season 3 of THE 100, including the fact that Becca (the scientist who created ALIE) was actually the first Grounder Commander. The Grounders are now without a Commander due to Lexa and Ontari’s deaths and the world is coming to an end…..again. How will the Earth’s original inhabitant’s deal with the new threats in season 4?

During a visit to the set of THE 100 in Vancouver, the cast teased what’s to come for the Grounders in season 4.

Where Does the Season Pick Up? Not with a time jump from the events of season 3. According to Zach McGowan (Roan) “It really just kind of picks up where it left off with the whole fall of the City of Light and all that. And the power struggle as to what’s going to happen in Polis and what not. So we meet right there. When the season, you know, picks up, Roan’s just been shot. So I think I’m like unconscious on the ground.”

The First Big Challenge. Obviously, the impending nuclear meltdown is going to be a big challenge for season 4, but before anyone can deal with that, they need to deal with the immediate aftermath of the season 3 premiere. Bob Morley (Bellamy) teased that “There’s a whole bunch of people who turned up to Polis under the guidance of ALIE so already, once everyone’s out of it, there’s a whole bunch of clans and people brought together by this one idea being ALIE that then come out of that and have to deal with what they’ve gone through and the fall-out from that. Also, not all clans get along so there’s that immediate place of waking up and being like, ‘There’s a whole bunch of people I don’t know or get along with.’ How do you confront that situation? That’s something that comes about. But obviously the impending doom is one of those things that you have to get into pretty quickly otherwise it will just get out of hand. That’s the pressing factor.”

What’s Next for Indra? “What happens to Indra, and all of us, [is] we’ve got a new enemy coming,” Adina Porter (Indra) said. “This one, we did not expect. It’s faceless, it’s unbeatable, and we’re all going to try to figure out how to win this one. You’ve always seen Indra being the brave warrior, but sometimes you can fight your way to survival, and sometimes you’ve got to figure out new skills to survive. You’ll see in season four some new skills.”

Roan, King of the Ice Nation. McGowan was right about Roan — when we first see him in season 4 he is in critical condition after being shot. McGowan has been named a regular for the new season, so clearly Roan doesn’t die. But his survival is a big part of the season premiere, as is who next takes control over the Grounders: “After the fall of ALIE and Lexa’s gone and there’s no Commander and Ontari’s gone and all of that, there’s a power vacuum,” McGowan explained. “So it’s a big question as to what’s the right thing for everyone and who is going to take power over [the others in season 4]. And I think that’s a big question for Roan — whether he even wants to do that kind of [power grab]. I’ve always kind of envisioned him, like, reluctantly involved in all of this. In Polis and whatnot. He’s not necessarily wholeheartedly into that. It’ll be a big question as to both who takes power and whether or not he’ll want it and whether or not he can control the Ice Nation, which is an unruly group (and he hasn’t obviously spent much time with them anyway since he’s been banished for so long). That’s something that’s explored quite a bit, without giving anything away.”

New Ice Nation Voices. “I realized that last year….there were only two people from the Ice Nation who we’ve actually heard speak and [heard] their positions,” McGowan recounted. “And obviously one of them got a spear through her chest so she was not around anymore. So there are some new characters from [Ice Nation] that are brought around [in season 4].” In fact, without giving too much away, there is a very powerful voice from the Ice Nation we haven’t really heard from that will dominate the action and the political situation in Polis in the season 4 premiere.

The Absence of a Commander. Roan isn’t the only person who has to deal with the fact that the Grounders no longer have a Commander. Porter explained that “When you’re allowed to stick with your traditions, you can kind of relax in it, in a way. It’s like, this is the hierarchy, this is who we follow, and as a career warrior, this is what I do. Then, everything gets thrown in our faces because of our Commander not being there anymore, and how we traditionally find and believe a new Commander will come is being thrown into question. There are folks who want to stick with what we know, and then there are folks who want to trust having to deal with the new circumstances that are coming. We’re breaking up into new camps now. It used to be, I could trust you or not trust you by the costume that you wore. You were on that clan. Now, because everything’s kind of being thrown up into the air, I’ve got to trust you because of the deeds you are doing, not just who you happen to be. It’s kind of like new clans are being created within the clans. It’s kind of freaking scary, because I like tradition.”

Where is the Flame? Eliza Taylor (Clarke) explained that “It’s interesting because the flame….I mean, now that the City of Light has been shut down and the flame has kind of become a little bit obsolete, in the way that it’s not going to work the way that it would [have] given that there is no virtual world anymore. So I think for Clarke the flame is still so important to her because she still believes that it’s Lexa. She’s holding on to it as a keepsake and it’s still a very important….it plays a very important role in Grounder spirituality. So her having it certainly….it still holds power, but it don’t do the same stuff as it used to.” However, it *does* serve as a crucial symbol for the Grounders and its existence will come into play in the premiere.

Can the Differences Be Bridged? A big thing for the Grounders this season has to do with the different tribes and how they’ll all deal with the impending disaster. McGowan said that “[this season] you’ll see more and more of the differences between the different groups and how the different belief systems will kind of either work with…that’ll make people work together or force people further apart. And as is the case with the impending second apocalypse on its way, I think you find a lot of the struggle of ‘do we work together to face this challenge’ or is it ‘everyone for themselves’ and scatter and whatnot? That really becomes such a huge thing in the show this season — do we work together or do we not work together?”

New Clans. In addition to a bigger focus on Ice Nation (a.k.a. Azgeda), season 4 will introduce us to two new clans: Trishanakru and Shallow Valley. A photo of the clan’s costumes can be found below.

THE 100 returns for its fourth season on Wednesday, February 1 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
