The 100 ended its third season on a very odd and ominous note this year. For those needing a refresher, Clarke saved the world by ending A.L.I.E.
They also started its end because with the end of A.L.I.E., the world is set to destroy itself once more with radiation.
With that in mind, the San Diego Comic Con panel for The 100 did not offer up much hope as far as everyone’s favorite delinquents are concerned with regards to having a relatively happy next season.
For starters, it was revealed that not so great weather was going to hit Polis in the upcoming season. Can you say Nuclear storm? According to Eliza Taylor, the next season is going to be about a “group of humans having to deal with something they have no control over.”
As for Octavia, the panel revealed that next season was going to take Ms. Blake down a very dark road. Octavia’s turn to the darkness should be that much of a shock consider she ended the season killing Pike since he killed the love of her life, Lincoln. “Octavia found a home in wherever Lincoln was,” said Marie.
One of the questions that arose during the panel was the question of leadership for next season. Episode one will answer the question of who will take over as leader. There is no leader at this point, and Clarke is definitely not Heda. “Clarke is a part of the group now, and it’s time to work together,” shared Taylor.
As for the City of Light, according to Jason Rothenberg, “The City of Light is gone for sure next season, but the ‘flame’ is still around.” For those wondering if Lexa will ever be back, the answer to that question is no. “We always knew that Lexa was coming back in the finale but she will not be back on the show,” shared Rothenberg.
As for what the cast would like to see happen for next season, Taylor said she “just wants a scene where she laughs and smiles.” Marie and Lindsey would like more flashbacks and motorcycles to be a thing, and Henry Ian Cusick would love to be able to direct an episode.
Here’s hoping that some of the things do come true for the fourth season.
The 100 will return in 2017.
