Surviving The 100 is TV Guide's latest and greatest aftershow, where we'll be bringing you insights from the cast and creator of The 100 every week! After each new episode, we'll break down what happened, what it means and what's coming next.
This week, we spoke with creator and showrunner Jason Rothenberg about the Season 5 premiere, including Clarke's (Eliza Taylor) solo journey after Praimfaya, how the dynamics have shifted between the characters isolated up in space and last but not least, what the heck happened with Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) down in that bunker!
According to Rothenberg, the last six years inside the bunker have not been kind ones. "It descended into chaos and madness... In the next episode, we will flash back and tell the whole story of how that happened."
The 100 Creator Defends that Controversial New Couple
Hopefully next week's episode gives us the answers we need about why Octavia seems to have gone bonkers down there, and we can only hope her reasons are justified.
If they're not, everyone knows The 100 is a show where anyone can die at any time. Depending on the hows and whys of Octavia's new gladiator pit, there's every chance that her rule in the bunker has not been a benevolent one. Considering how resistant Grounders are to new leadership, we're a little worried about an uprising unseating Octavia from her new throne.
And we all know what happens to rulers who are violently overthrown...
The 100 airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW.
