The CW’s The 100 season four premiered on February 1, 2017, kicking off immediately after the events of season three. Civilization will be gone in six months unless, to steal a line from Matt Damon in The Martian, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and her crew are able to “science the sh*t” out of this huge problem. Or as Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) and Abby (Paige Turco) explain it, the youth have inherited the earth and they have six months to save it.
Episode two titled ‘Heavy Lies the Crown’ will air on February 8, 2017. ‘Heavy Lies the Crown’ was directed by Ed Fraiman from a script by Justine Juel Gillmer.
The season two cast includes Bob Morley as Bellamy, Marie Avgeropoulos as Octavia, Devon Bostick as Jasper, Lindsey Morgan as Raven, Christopher Larkin as Monty, Richard Harmon as Murphy, and Isaiah Washington as Jaha. And as a fan of Black Sails it’s great to have Zach McGowan back on TV, even if he’s not playing a swashbuckling pirate.
Heavy Lies the Crown Plot: The burden of leading weighs heavily upon Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy (Morley) when different challenges force them to determine who will live and die.
