The best sci-fi show on TV returns Wednesday and it's on The CW. Though it initially appeared to be yet another post-apocalyptic teen drama (love triangles and all), The 100 quickly set itself apart from the pack with its gritty realism and complex world-building. When the series returns for its second season, it continues the momentum of last year's (literally) explosive finale and builds on it by introducing viewers to the mysterious underground compound Mount Weather. But could this really be the 100's salvation? Find out what creator Jason Rothenberg has to say about this, who survived and what's to come.
When The 100 returns Wednesday, it doesn't waste any time addressing the big question: Where the hell were Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and the others taken?
How The 100 blurs the lines between savagery, sacrifice and survival
In the previously released first minutes of the premiere, Clarke sets out to discover just that — by taking a young girl hostage at knife-point. But in this exclusive sneak peek, Clarke's mission to find her friends (and a way out) doesn't exactly turn out as planned. And what Clarke discovers turns everything you thought about Mount Weather upside down.
Things are not looking up for The 100. The Grounders are heading their way, their weapons expert has been shot and that jerk Murphy wasted all their gun powder. But these kids aren't ones to go down without a fight. Ahead of Wednesday's season finale (9/8c, The CW), creator Jason Rothenberg spoke to TVGuide.com about how the hundred will fare in the bigshowdown with the Grounders, the likelihood of the Ark making it to Earth and more.
Who will survive the season finale of The 100?
On the first episode of the two-part closer, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Finn (Thomas McDonell) must face off with the Grounders, but they quickly learn that they have a brand new enemy on Earth. Also in the hour, Bellamy (Bob Morley) makes a heroic move to save Jasper (Devon Bostick), while Murphy (Richard Harmon) finally gets his revenge.
On Wednesday's episode of The 100, the Ark develops serious doubts about the survival of its Earth-bound ambassadors as more and more of them remove their transmitter cuffs.
TV's most heart-breaking deaths
Abby (Paige Turco), whose daughter Clarke (Eliza Taylor) is one of those on the ground, is desperate to figure out what's seemingly killing off the ambassadors. Thankfully, she gets some much-needed insight from an unlikely source.
