The CW’s The 100 season six kicked off with a landing party venturing down to the surface of the planet they’ll be calling home, at least for now. It didn’t take long for Clarke, Bellamy, Murphy, and the rest of the small group to discover the new enemy they’ll be up against: alien plants and bugs influenced by the Red Sun. Plus, as The 100 is wont to do, the episode involved the death of a beloved character.
Raven won’t be allowed even a little happiness after all as Shaw was electrocuted while the group was attempting to escape the attacking insects. (RIP Shaw and bye-bye Jordan Bolger.) The episode also almost said goodbye to Kane (it was this/close), however he was safely tucked back in a pod before he died following what Abby believed had been a successful surgery.
Down on the planet, a children’s book holds the clue to this dangerous new world. “The stars align and wakes. It’s time to run away. For two days, heaven is hell. And friends are foe.”
Up next, season six episode two titled “Red Sun Rising” and airing May 7, 2019. Episode two was directed by Alex Kalymnios from a script by Jeff Vlaming.
The cast of season six 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, Richard Harmon as John Murphy, Tasya Teles as Echo, and Shannon Kook as Jordan Green. Luisa D’Oliveria is Emori, Sachin Sahel is Jackson, and Jarod Joseph is Miller.
The “Red Sun Rising” Plot – SURVIVAL – The team on the ground flights to survive the threat they face on the new planet. Meanwhile, Raven (Lindsey Morgan) must join forces with an unlikely ally to save everyone on board the Mothership.
The 100 Season 6 Plot:
“After the game-changing season five finale, Clarke and the team make their way down to the new planet. They are left wondering if this planet is suitable for life, and if the human race can finally live in peace? What will they find on this new mysterious home, and what will emerge from Monty’s discovery of the Eligius III mission?”
