Top 10 Things We Want to See In The 100’s Final Season

The 100/The CW

Published

on

Since 2014, The CW’s sci-fi hit The 100 has been one of the most popular shows on the network.

However, after a seven-season run, the show will be coming to a close. As an avid fan of the show for years, I’m anxiously anticipating the final season and what it will bring for our favorite characters.

Here’s a list of what I’m hoping to see in season seven:

#1- A storyline that doesn’t revolve around isolating Clarke.

Ever since the end of season two, Clarke hasn’t gone a full season without being separated from her friends in one way or another. She was left on Earth for six years, on the run as Wanheda and even got her body taken over by Josephine.

I would like to see a season where Clarke gets to be with the people she cares about the entire time. She still hasn’t gotten the chance to properly reconnect with “Spacekru” and we haven’t gotten to see enough of Clarke’s bond with Madi. For the final stretch of episodes, let’s hope we can see Clarke finally getting the time she needs with the people who are still around.

#2- A chance for the characters to finally grieve

The 100 is known for killing off an insane amount of characters. Whether it be ones we loved (I’m still not over Lincoln) or ones we hated (Kane and Abby for me), The 100 has an incredibly high body count. But our characters have never really been given time to grieve the ones we’ve lost.

A standout scene from season five was the moment in which we got to see Clarke find Jasper’s goggles and mourn him while she was alone on Earth. That might’ve been one of the best scenes of the show. We need more of them in the final season. We’ve had grief arcs with characters lashing out after the death of a loved one, but we haven’t gotten to see any special remembrance moments. I think it’s time that our favorite characters get a chance to process how they feel about losing people they care about in a healthy way.

#3- Resolution of Blake sibling arc

Bellamy and Octavia’s relationship has gone through a lot of ups and downs throughout the show. Personally, I’m not much of a fan of Octavia so I’ve definitely enjoyed Bellamy finally setting some boundaries for himself in their relationship. However, on Twitter and at conventions it’s been hinted that in this upcoming season Bellamy’s storyline will once again revolve around trying to save his sister. While this feels familiar I would love for there to be a way to turn this repetitive story arc upside down.

Bellamy’s proven time and time again that he loves Octavia so I would like to see her end up saving him in the end. Their relationship has always been unhealthy and imbalanced but I think if the writers are willing to make the Blake siblings arc come full circle there’s potential for really powerful moments in the final season.

#4- Characters making amends with those they’ve hurt

Throughout the series, characters have fought, betrayed each other, and grew apart. But one of the big lessons The 100 tries to drive home is the importance of forgiveness. Whether it be among familial relationships or friendships, I would like to see characters taking responsibility for their actions and actively working towards doing better in the future. I want apologies. I want hugs. We’ve had enough trauma, a peaceful ending bringing people together again would be a great way to say goodbye to The 100.

#5- Storylines centered around the main characters

One of my big issues with The 100 is that it never seems to know how many characters are too many. Every season new characters are added and they’ve all started fading into overdone archetypes that we’ve seen hundreds of times before. The 100 needs to bring the focus back to the characters we have a history with, the ones we’ve grown to care about. One of the main players of the upcoming season is going to be a character named Hope who we only met in last season’s finale.

Any screentime her storyline gets will unfortunately just be taking time away from giving our favorites a proper sendoff. I want there to be enough time to resolve the arcs of the characters I know and love. I don’t want to learn about side characters who have nothing to add to the plot when there’s no time to develop them fully.

#6- Bellamy and Clarke as co-leaders again

The 100 has always been a story about what it takes to be a leader and the struggles you have to go through to become one. We’ve seen different leadership styles in Mount Weather, Arkadia, Polis, and even Sanctum. But no one has ever been as successful as Clarke and Bellamy are when they’re leading together.

The 100’s first season centered around these two characters working together to keep a group of delinquent teenagers safe, and they did. However, once the rest of the characters from the Ark came down and we were introduced to more and more potential leaders, Clarke and Bellamy got pushed to the backburner. Yet they are still the ones who always save the day in the end, just without the credit. It’s not a coincidence that Bellamy and Clarke are separated so often because if they were together they would be able to solve their problems in much less time than a thirteen-episode season.

Their dynamic has always been one of the strongest on the show and I think it would only make sense for the final season to circle back around to Bellamy and Clarke being the ones in charge. They’re a great team and know how to share the burden of leadership. They’re best when they’re together.

#7- The end of Us vs. Them

The 100 has always been a story about different groups of people fighting to survive, and more often than not, fighting each other.

In season seven, I would like to see the end of these group tensions and start focusing on humanity as a whole. It feels repetitive to still be acting like our favorite characters are united under one group and that the rest of the characters outside of the group are the enemy. We’ve been through two apocalypses and six seasons. I think we can stop acting like there’s one superior group who deserves to be in charge of the rest. Let’s take the focus away from political alliances and just focus on the characters.

#8- Callbacks to past seasons

I always love when finales pay tribute to what the characters have been through and who we’ve lost along the way. I say for season seven of The 100 we should get all the nostalgia we want. I want mentions of the dropship days, mentions of Jasper and Monty, parallels between relationships at the beginning of the show and relationships now.

The main reason I’ve stuck with this show has been for the characters I grew to care about. There’s been a lot of mistakes and plenty of bad writing, but ultimately this show is still one of my favorites. I’ve grown up with the delinquents. I want moments that honor how far they’ve come, and I want scenes embedded with cheesy references to the past. Sue me.

#9- One final lever to pull

In the theme of callbacks, I would love if this season ended with another big choice depending on pulling a lever. We’ve seen it several times now, at the end of season one when Clarke closes the drop ship door to when she pulls the lever in the City of Light to destroy ALIE. I know a lot of people have gotten sick of the lever pulling, but I say it would be a good way to come full circle if they have one final lever to pull.

#10- Bellarke

I think it’s time the show admits that they’ve been writing a love story between their two leads all along. They’ve consistently had the most compelling relationship on the show, and have shown time and time again how much they care for each other. All their scenes are shot in ways that scream romance through dramatic lighting, musical choices and camera angles capturing how strongly they feel for one another.

The show has always tiptoed around the idea of having their relationship become more than a friendship, but it already is whether or not they officially go there. Clarke and Bellamy have always had a deep bond and their chemistry has been off the charts. The actors even got married in real life. Last season Bellamy was called out for caring more about Clarke than anyone else, even his supposed girlfriend. Clarke’s dealt with that same accusation before. She spent six years alone and called him every day to keep her sane.

It’s time to stop beating around the bush and give them the space to address what’s been brewing between them for six seasons. It’s been a frustrating journey to get here, but I still have hope.

    Pat Sajak Kicks Off Final Run on ‘Wheel of Fortune’ Season 41

    Published

    on

    Pat Sajak

    The beginning of the end is officially upon us! 

    Wheel of Fortune Season 41 was set to kick off today, September 11, 2023, with a momentous premiere marking Pat Sajak’s final spin with the game show. Unfortunately, due to the Monday Night’s NFL Kickoff, the episode will not be airing in its regularly scheduled slot of 6:30 p.m. CT in some markets. Instead, episode 401 was preempted and scheduled on the lineup to air at 3:07 a.m. CT, while the second episode of the season, is set to air normally on September 12th at 6:30 p.m. CT.

    The article has been updated to reflect this schedule change. 

    The longtime host announced his departure this summer. He has helmed the game show for 40 years alongside Vanna White, who is also set to return for the 41st season, though she will be away for a week as she came down with COVID-19 while filming, forcing her to miss a handful of episodes. 

    Still, it’s going to be a season to remember as things will never be the same again once Ryan Seacrest takes over, replacing Sajak in 2024. Sajak first joined in 1981, filling the spot previously held by Chuck Woolery and making the game show an American staple. 

    However, Sajak was ready to close this chapter of his life, previously declaring, “Well, the time has come. I’ve decided that our 41st season, which begins in September, will be my last. It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ll have more to say in the coming months.”

    Fans aren’t looking forward to the change, with many commenting that it’s the “last” season they will watch on the WOF Instagram and Twitter posts promoting the premiere. 

    Wheel of Fortune Season 41 will kick off with the theme “European Vacation,” airing episodes every night of the week at 6:30 pm CT on ABC.

    It’s unclear if White, who hasn’t gotten a raise in 18 years, will continue on with the show once Seacrest takes over, but since she’s so iconic and integral to the show’s success, we hope that she gets what she deserves! 

    And we hope everyone enjoys the final season with the iconic duo of Sajak and White!

And a teaser revealed plans for his biggest, boldest, and most “insane” heist to date, setting his sights on the Black Pearl, which becomes the source of many problems after kidnappers take hold of his mother in exchange for the gem. The escapades will stretch a total of 7 episodes. 

     

    Loki – Oct 6. on Disney+

    Frasier Revival – Oct 12. on Paramount+

    Original series star Kelsey Grammer is Dr. Frasier Crane and embarks on a new chapter in a different city that forces him to face new challenges, relationships, and more. There’s definitely a nostalgia angle at play, but it’s nice reconnecting with a familiar face after all these years.

     

    Fear The Walking Dead – Oct. 22 on AMC

    The Walking Dead spinoff is gearing up to air its final set of episodes, with a focus on the core original characters including Madison and Strand’s reunion.

    NCIS and NCIS: Hawai’i may be on hiatus, but NCIS: Sydney, the highly anticipated spinoff series, will be entertaining fans this fall.

    When Will the Holiday Episodes of ‘Virgin River’ Premiere? See the Trailer Now

    Virgin River Season 4 Season Finale Biggest Cliffhangers and Moments

    Virgin River is giving a holiday gift of two bonus episodes. 

    After all 10 episodes of the fifth season arrive on Sept. 7, fans can look forward to two additional holiday-themed episodes streaming a few months down the line as “part 2” on Thursday, Nov. 30. It will be the show’s first-ever Christmas offering, bringing the episode count to 12 in total for season 5. 

    The 10th episode, the unofficial “season finale,” even included a time-jump four months into the future, setting the scene for the additional episodes as Mel and Jack can be seen gearing up for Christmas by decorating their cabin with wreaths and lights. 

    Mel is chatting with her sister, Joey, as Jack asks if she and the kids are excited for their first Virgin River Christmas.

    A few days after the fifth season premiered, Lauren Hammersley, who plays Charmaine, shared the first look at the holiday episodes, revealing what fans can expect—and yes, Christmas in Virgin River looks just as magical as you’d expect. 

    As the town goes all-out for the Christmas tree decorating competition (the grand prize is a Yule log and bragging rights), Mel, who is sporting some chic new bangs, explains that she’s looking for her biological father as she wants to know “what happened.”

    By the end of the brief trailer, she informs Jack that they’ve located him, with Preacher noting that he’s “still in Virgin River.” There are a handful of possibilities as to who it could be, which we break down in full right here

    Lizzie’s pregnancy is also addressed as she has doubts about whether she’ll be a good mom as Hope (likely) gears up to give her some incredible advice. 

    And speaking of pregnancies, one of the longest in TV history is finally coming to an end as Charmaine begins experiencing contractions at Doc’s practice and Mel jumps in to help.

    As for Brady and Brie shippers, there may still be hope for their reconciliation after all as she approaches her ex and accidentally meets him right under the mistletoe. One fan in the comments suggested that she’s now doing the chasing, though a later scene, which seems to be a holiday dinner with everyone in town, sees her cozying up to Mike, so it seems she’s still very much conflicted on matters of the heart. 

    The only upsetting storyline includes Preacher, who may have found love with Kaia, but whose life might also blow up now that they’ve located Wes’ body after the fire. 

    “This thing is about to blow,” Mike tells him over the phone as Kaia inquires if he can clue her in on anything.
