Hi everyone out there!
Although we haven’t posted a lot of blogposts about this show, “The 100” is one of May’s and my favourite TV Shows ever. I would even say it is my number 1 show of all times – and by now, I already watched a few shows and liked a lot of them, but no one was nearly as impressive and none of them has changed me as much as The 100 did.
Season 4 starts this week – like, a few hours after posting this!! And it was just last Friday that I realized that the new season was this close and that I am really not ready for it. So today, we’ll briefly go over everything again and we’ll also prepare for season 4!
Maybe not all of you know The 100 yet or you already heard about it, but you are not really sure what it’s about, so I will quickly explain it to you:
In the year 2052, nuclear weapons from all over the world were started and destroyed everything – more than 6.5 billion people died and the whole earth was radiated and no longer habitable. There were few survivors, who for example fled into space. Twelve space ships managed to escape the cataclysm and after a few years, they united and formed the “Ark”. But now, 97 years later, the air system on the Ark that provides them with oxygen doesn’t work anymore and there is only enough oxygen left to survive a few months. The government of the Ark has to find a solution, and they decide to send 100 young criminals down to earth to test whether the earth is still too radiated or if it is save to come “home”. But on their trip down, the little dropship of the 100 loses its connection to the Ark and suddenly, the 100 teenagers are on their own. But just a few hours later, they realize that they are not the only survivors of the nuclear apocalypse. There are other people, so called “Grounders” who are radiation-tolerant and who are able to live despite of the radiation. But these Grounders aren’t happy about the arrival of the Sky people and a huge war develops…
Now, I’d like to talk about the stuff we can expect from season 4: what did we see in the trailers, who is still alive, what will be the problems in the new season?
So please, if you haven’t watched all three seasons, then don’t continue reading this post because this contains huuuge spoilers for basically everything, especially for season three!
I guess we can all say that season three was extremely thrilling and it won’t be easy to top that. I actually hope they didn’t top it, because that would probably mean more death and more hopeless situations that just can’t end well. I heard a lot that they would go back to season one a little, though I don’t really know what they mean with it. What I could imagine is that they want to bring back the united Sky people (just like the 100 delinquents in the first season), I did really miss that in season three. Apart from the end when they searched for Luna, they were always in small groups and never worked together, Clarke was in Polis, Bellamy was completely on the wrong side and the rest was just suffering from different problems. Maybe they’ll reunite a little in the new season, I really hope to see that!
Something we probably all want to see in this season is Octavia. In the end of season three and also in the trailers we could see that she has a huge development and will use her grief and anger over Lincoln’s death to become a vengeful warrior – the Sky Ripper. I feel so sorry for Octavia because she suffered her whole life and now she loses another close person, maybe even closest person to her. But I have to say, I am so excited to see her as Sky Ripper and what we’ve already seen (her hair and make-up for example!) looks absolutely awesome!
Then, I am so thrilled to see how the Grounder Clans will deal with this situation: ALIE is defeated, but they don’t have a commander anymore because Ontari is dead, and apart from Luna, there are no other Nightbloods, so who is charge now? I guess Azgeda will try to win the power, and I actually can imagine King Roan on the throne – but how will he deal with Clarke and the Sky People? I can only assume things here, but I am sure this is going to be a really delicate matter.
And we shouldn’t forget this tiny detail ALIE told us in the last minutes of the finale… The earth is only going to be habitable for another sixth month. After that? Well, I guess everybody dies. Unless the 100 (or more, what is left of them) find a way to stop it – and it is really hard to stop a nuclear cataclysm, you can’t just make a deal with them like with Roan or Lexa, for example. I have no idea how you could fix that, my possible endings are either that everybody dies (not even unlikely for the 100) or that they “rebuild” the Ark and flee to space again, but I am not sure that does even work because most of the Ark is completely destroyed and also, the Air system on the Ark was broken so they would have to fix that too in case they wanted to use the Ark again…
So many questions, so little answers!
I hope you all tune into “The 100” in a few hours or that you watch it tomorrow, if you’re from Europe, like me!
May and I will keep you updated on our thoughts to season 4 and we’ll probably even write episode reviews! (I really enjoy to do that lately, I guess you can also see that on our blog!)
Thank you for reading and see you next time!
