It’s that time of the year again when all my favorite tv shows are back and I basically have something to look forward to all week. Most importantly, this week has been the first airing of the new season of my favorite show, which you may have heard of, the 100. I have been watching the show for about a year, that is to say when the second season came out and have been truly obsessed with it ever since.
Plot summary (from imdb) : 97 years after a devastating nuclear war wiped out almost all life on Earth, humankind is living in space, residing in twelve space stations. The space stations banded together to form a single massive station named « The Ark », where about 2,400 people live. Resources are scarce and all crimes no matter their nature or severity are punishable by death (« floating ») unless the perpetrator is under 18 years of age. After the Ark’s life support systems are found to be critically failing, one hundred juvenile prisoners are declared « expendable » and sent to the surface in a last ditch attempt to determine if Earth is habitable again. The teens arrive on a beautiful planet they’ve only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. However they discover that not all humanity was wiped out. There are people on Earth who survived the war, called « grounders » by the 100. The teens quickly discover they are not welcome by the hostile grounders and must band together in order to survive.
One thing I absolutely adore about this show is that you never get bored. So many things happen all the time and you can notice the effects on the characters, who have amazing development throughout the seasons and I just can’t wait to see what’s gonna happen in the third season. Obviously, the first episode of the season only aired Thursday so I can’t tell you much about this season but I can tell great things are coming in the show and I can’t wait to see exactly what they have planned for us this season.
STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE TWO SEASONS OF THE SHOW
I won’t tell you about the first episode because some of you may not have watched it yet (if so, what are you doing with your life????) and I don’t want to spoil it. The only thing I can tell you is that it was really promising for the rest of the season, showing us what happened to the characters 3 months after Mount Weather, especially concerning Clarke and Jasper who appeared to be the ones the most transformed by the events, and introducing the rest of season with the right amount of suspense to keep us entertained and looking forward to the next episode and even the rest of the season. The trailer of the season showed how worried we should be about everything that’s coming towards us, because let’s be honest, one of the main thing this show is good at, is breaking our hearts. Hopefully, the season will be as good as they made it appeared to be, and I have no doubt it will be.
