Back April 30th! And IN SPAAAAAACE!

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTwy1E6CW4w

So a quick recap:

The "Last" humans alive on a space station, 100 years or thereabouts after a nuclear war, sent 100 no good criminal juvie delinquent kids to see if Earth was safe and less radiated, since their cobbled together space colony was about to fail. Kinda like a surly, "gently caress you dad" canary in a coal mine.

It was mostly OK, with some cool new animals:


Well mostly:


Turns out that humans had survived after all! Yay!


After the nuclear war, the surviving humans in the area had went primitive, forming a bunch of tribes, united under a Commander (which turns out that was all set up by the person who ended the world inadvertently in the first place). The Space Folks, aka Skaicru, had to fight them. And ally with them. And fight them some more.

After the kids went through hell to survive, the adults came down to patronize them:


I mean, they REALLY came down:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avswBeal9Hk

Even Jaha. Eventually.


They met the President of the United States,


Killed him, and every other surviving American. It's OK though, they were Literal Vampires, feeding on the Grounders.

And then they blew up Mount Weather, the last surviving remnant of 21st Century tech and surviving culture and art, because of course:


There were about 7 different Chancellors of Skaicru, to the point where who knows who the gently caress is in charge.
gently caress IT

Clarke became Wanheda, the Commander of DEATH
BEFORE:


AFTER:


She killed, like, EVERYONE, maaaan.

Jaha went on many wild rides to Save His People, and found out that A.O.C. A.L.I.E., a preware AI, was the one who actually destroyed the world.


And she was gonna save everyone again! With VR enslavement!

"Have you heard about our Lord and Savior Xenu?"

Turns out the world was full of other survivors, lots of tribes. We just saw people on the East Coast of the US. Could there be people in Middle America? California? Canada? South America? Russia? Africa? More bunkers?
Who knows, cause turns out A.L.I.E. was kinda right and all the world's nuclear reactors blew up!

Well that might have been an interesting season, going to Egypt and poo poo.

So instead of leaving their corporeal bodies behind for The Matrix, the humans left in the greater DC area decided to fight to the death over yet another Solution Jaha found, a cult bunker that was surprisingly well stocked.


So a few hundred people survived, some went back to space, and Clarke survived because Clarke. And she became a Mom.


And this was all that was left of Earth:


And of course, the remaining humans: the Grounders, the Sky People, and a bunch of Unfrozen Space Convicts destroyed it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhJd6pFUT6s

But luckily, the Space Convicts had been on a mission and Something Something HEY THERE'S A NEW PLANET!


Another world to destroy! They've literally reset the entire concept of the series for like the 5th time, and this is the biggest one. We went from 100 Hot Teen CW Kids fighting Hot Sexy Tribal CW Kids to an alien planet. Kane seems to still be alive, at least for a bit.

Also John Murphy is G.O.A.T.

Looks awesome as usual I loving love this show

Those gifs of Before and After Wanheda are pretty striking. I really hope we get a huge body count for good ol' Genghis Clarke.. lately she hasn't outright killed as many people all at once like she used to. The Frightening Commander thing looks like it could be cool. I'm not sold on the eclipse psychosis idea yet but I'm glad to see there are far scarier things than that to look forward to.

I wonder what's up with the 'Book II' tagline. A quick look at the wikipedia pages for the novels suggests we've been in new and original plot territory since Mt Weather, and that continued on until the 3rd novel I think.

I'm assuming the justification is because at the end of last season they gave up on trying to live on Earth and now they're moving on.

yeah I thought of that but wondered why they just wouldn't do something like The 100: Sanctum or whatever. Just doesn't seem to make sense with the book/novel thing.

Some of the renewal might just be "oh poo poo, Supernatural is finally ending, we gotta keep the Genre train going" (and IIRC The 100 is one of, if not the, longest running CW series). OTOH, it shows the network is stoked about the season they put together and the new concept.

Once Supernatural and Arrow end next season The 100 will be the longest running scripted show currently on the CW. It just barely beats out The Flash as it started the same year but earlier.

Wish I could watch live but I'm going to catch it on DVR with my mom at her house this weekend (we started watching it together, and got my brother and his wife on the Wild Ride as well) so I'll be ducking out. Enjoy!

Are we predicting Ravens pilot gently caress buddy got picked up and taken back by the ship pirates?
Seem cruel to bring him back for 20 mins to just knock the dust off Raven's hoohar and land the ship

HatJudge

Not a hat


Fun Shoe

He's most likely dead. I read somewhere that the actor signed on to another show.

I started writing a post about how I wish the show would remove some plot armour and kill off some of the protagonists now and again, just to keep us on our toes. Like they did Finn in in season one. And then I remembered that we lost at least Monty, Harper, Jasper and Jaha last season alone, so my criticism isn't valid at all.
Still wish Abby was gone though. She's by far the most annoying character and her bullshit is rarely fun.

I'm excited about their adventures on the new moon. The fact that their new friends/enemies are tech savvy enough to steal the ship means that this will probably not be just a carbon copy of the conflict with the grounders

She's still their only doctor so her plot armor is the strongest of all. At least until they find another certified doctor. Jackson is still in training / doesn't have all her years of knowledge / can't do surgery / something else.

It's been a while since the end of the last season so when the episode started I got Shaw and Miller mixed up and was wondering why Miller was boning Raven.

Between Bellamy and Clarke they have a combined kill count of 1900 mooks. e: It's actually 1600, she shares Mt Weather with Bellamy.

Bellamy is currently in the lead, by 95. I hope Clarke can bring it home for the title.

e: She took all of season 4 off killing too.
