The CW’s sci-fi action drama The 100 returned on April 24, 2018 with season five episode one. The episode divided its time between Clarke’s time on Earth with only the company of her new young friend, Madi (Lola Flanery), and with the group up on the Ark. The development of Clarke’s relationship with Madi was explored as well as the new dynamics among the Ark passengers. It was revealed that Murphy’s on the outs with his group and he and Emori are no longer a couple. In a surprise turn of events, it was also revealed Bellamy has a new girlfriend: Echo. That development’s not going to go over well with Bellamy’s sister, Octavia, who Echo has already attempted to kill.
Up next, season five episode two titled “Red Queen.” Episode two is directed by P.J. Pesce from a script by Terri Hughes Burton and will air May 1, 2018.
The season five cast includes Eliza Taylor as Clarke Griffin, Paige Turco as Dr. Abigail Griffin, Bob Morley as Bellamy Blake, Marie Avgeropoulos as Octavia Blake, Lindsey Morgan as Raven Reyes, Christopher Larkin as Monty Green, Henry Ian Cusick as Marcus Kane, Richard Harmon as John Murphy, Luisa d’Oliveira as Emori, Chelsey Reist as Harper, and Tasya Teles as Echo.
The “Red Queen” Plot: GUIDANCE — Octavia (Avgeropoulos) is forced to take guidance from an unlikely ally when the future of the bunker and all those inside it is jeopardized.
The Season 5 Plot: Over the last four seasons The 100 have fought to survive against unimaginable odds, only to see the world end for a second time. Season five begins six years later, with our heroes still separated: Bellamy’s team in space, Clarke on the ground, and hundreds trapped in the bunker below. But when a massive prison ship descends upon the last survivable place on earth, The 100 must come together to reclaim their home.
As two armies converge on one valley, alliances will shift, friends will become foes, and the march to war threatens to destroy all that’s left of the human race. Can our heroes break the cycle, or is humanity doomed to repeat the past? In this epic battle for survival, one thing is certain: there are no good guys.
