In the CW series THE 100, there are two worlds that are slowly colliding — the vibrant and lethal world of Earth, where the teens were sent to see if it is inhabitable; and the dying and decaying world of the Ark up in space.
In recent episodes, those worlds began to collide when Clarke’s mother Abby (Paige Turco) sent Raven (Lindsey Morgan) down in a space pod to find out what is going on after they lost communication with the teens’ ship after it land on Earth and their life-support wrist monitors began to go dark. After being forced to kill another 320 people in order to extend the last remaining oxygen supply for those still trapped up on the Ark, it is vital to find out if Earth can be a safe refuge for those who will die without another oxygen source.
In last week’s episode, Raven reach Earth and was reunited with the teens, but was left without any way of communicating back with the Ark. Bellamy (Bob Morley) fearing that the others would find out that he shot Chancellor Jaha (Isaiah Washington), destroyed the space pod radio while Raven was unconscious – a hasty act which he soon regretted after finding out that the Chancellor had survived the gun-shot wound.
In one last desperate attempt to catch someone on the Ark’s attention, Raven, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy worked together to send up rocket flares. Alas, while seen by Abby on the Ark, Abby had no idea what to make of the streaking flashes of light in the sky.
Simultaneously, the headstrong Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) had wandered off alone in the woods and got captured by the Grounders.
So this week’s episode “His Sister’s Keeper” is all about the rescue of Octavia and the continuing efforts to find a way to contact the Ark.
While at WonderCon this past weekend, stars Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley, Devon Bostick, Lindsey Morgan and executive producer Jason Rothenberg talked about the various developing love triangles, the tug-of-war for power between the factions on Earth, and the challenges of filming such an intense post-apocalyptic series.
The only thing for certain for both those on Earth and on the Arc is that time is quickly running out. It will be a brutal struggle to survive, whether it is evading the deadly Grounders or toxic fog, or the ticking clock as oxygen continues to deplete rapidly on the Ark.
To see who are the next casualties, be sure to tune in for an all new episode of THE 100 on Wednesday, April 23rd at 9:00 p.m. on the CW. There is no place left to hide; it is only about surviving.
