A The 100 Community
Thursday 9:00 PM on The CW (Returning 2017)
You guys, I’m the first to admit that The 100 has it’s flaws, but let’s give credit where credit’s due: it does NOT waste time! Narratives in other shows (not naming names, but some of those shows involve vampires) that would take an entire season, have been propelled to fruition with a mere four episodes.

In four short hours, we’ve had major character deaths, sexy times and game changing twists.

When Raven and Abby (I learned her name, guys!) started working on the pod, I was like, “oh, okay, that’ll happen in the mid-season finale". But NOPE, off she goes! When Finn hopped on the train to flirt-town with Clark, I was all, “that’ll be a slow burn culminating in a kiss during the last episode”. NOPE, they are straight-up getting it on in a bomb shelter!

And instead of a drawn-out trial where everyone tries to decide how to do “the right thing”, we got Charlotte diving into the abyss of child star unemployment!

*happy sigh* I love it when stuff happens in a tv show, you know? It’s refreshing.

The episode dove into the aftermath of Wells’ death, bypassing finding the body, the funeral or any hysterics.

PILOT SEASON.png


Finn came out to cheer Clarke up with a little magic.


abracadabra.png


sorcery.png


It was a pencil, you guys! Because remember, Clarke is an artist or something. And I guess Finn knew that?

It wasn’t long before Clarke filled any new viewers in on the fact that her mom killed her dad.


sock it.png

socking.jpg


This woman has some serious denial going on! The only reason she doesn’t look like a complete dumb-dumb to the viewers is because we all know she’s right. But can you imagine being a regular Joe on the space station and having a medical official swear up and down that the scientific readings are wrong because she feels it. You know I love Clarke’s mom, you guys, but I’m surprised she still has a job.

Also, can we take a quick sec to talk about Tim Bartlett?


dream boat.png


Who is this guy? Has he had a line yet? Is he one of the rude extras that wanted to kill Jasper? Is he just chillin' out, building the wall and snacking on some CGI? Enquiring minds want to know!

Anyway, Clarke had successfully taken off her wrist band for Monty, and Finn was giving her the ol' knowing side-eye.


talk.png


Bellamy and the Beautiful Creepster were just hanging out watching everyone else build the wall, when Murphy started acting like the Pharaoh from The Prince of Egypt (or some other, credible adult movie about Pharaohs) whipping his slaves and denying them water.


feels good.jpg


The Beautiful Creepster PEED on that fellow! And then he told everyone to get back to work like peeing on people was just a regular part of his day! Haha, oh man, this character is wildly over the top and I love every second of it.

Octavia took Jasper for a delightful little walk. He was still a bit sensitive, but we learned it had been a WHOLE WEEK since he was on the brink of death.


cmon.jpg


Some extra grabbed Octavia, and Jasper ran out like the adorkable hero he is! Has anyone else noticed that all the extras are dick-bags? All except our beloved Tim Bartlett, obviously.

Anyway, Jasper tripped on a tree branch like a damsel in a horror movie and found this:


fingers.png


nightmare.jpg


We had a scene with Kane and Abby that seemed tense, but I couldn’t pay much attention because I was just so happy to see him again!

I guess he wanted to see what she up to, but as soon as she said he’d have to get inoculated, he wasn’t interested anymore. That boy does NOT want to get a cold. Fair enough, colds are the worst. I would rather be stranded on a hellish post-apocalyptic Earth with unfriendly two-headed animals than have a cold.

Anyway, who can think about a dreary cold when our favourite kick-ass-super-foxy mechanic was on the case!

still awesome.jpg


Abby informed Raven that they needed to take off poste haste, and Raven promised to get the pressure whatsit.

Back at camp, Jasper and Octavia brought the fingers to Clarke and Bellamy. My question is, HOW did they bring them? Did they just pick them up, or did they wrap them in a leaf first?

Obviously, Bellamy and Clarke disagreed about how to handle the situation.


tension.png


Bellamy didn’t want the camp to stop fearing the outsiders, while Clarke wanted justice for her friend’s death. Both had valid points.

The Beautiful Creepster did not want Bellamyto believe these vicious lies.


babe.png


public.png


The hive-mind decided to go ahead and kill Murphy.


kerfuffle.png


feel bad.png


rude.png


child murderer.png


aw damn.png


One important thing to note about this scene: we have now learned that “float” is not just a literal description for being sucked out of an air lock, it’s also a fun synonym for death! That’s awesome! Seriously, I love it when fictional times and places have terminology uniquely their own, like "frack" or "timey wimey" or "second breakfast."

“Float” is also another way to use one of societies' favourite expletives, as we learned in the scene with Raven (*swoon*) and a shady trader.


sex.jpg


backstory.jpg


Naturally, Beautiful Creepster wanted to murder Charlotte because… um…. ? Anyway, Clarke and Bellamy were getting to the bottom of things.


told me.png


dumb shit.jpg


Bellamy went to confront Murphy, and it went as well as can be expected.


moist towelette.jpg


murder.jpg


um.jpg


Murphy was understandably upset, so he did what any Beautiful Creepster would do and bludgeoned Bellamy over the head. But when he opened the tent…


adventure squad.jpg


Up in space, Raven played a very convincing sick woman in order to have a super secret meeting with Abby.


ahem.jpg


Since Raven didn’t want to get busy with some dude for the part, Abby had to take measures into her own hands and trade morphine, while Kane looked on suspiciously.


jeans.jpg


Back on Earth, Finn was leading them to the source of his wizardry - a bomb shelter!


friends.jpg


nu uh.jpg


Clarke was still pretty upset with Charlotte for brutally murdering her best friend.


princess.jpg


Clarke and Finn shared a candle lit conversation about death, destruction and an entire family melting from radiation. It was very romantic.

Then the shady trader sold out Abby and Raven!


A TON.png


listening.png


Clarke and Finn had adorably fallen asleep on each other, in the same room as a known murderer.


hello.jpg


But, oh dear! Charlotte was gone!

She ran into Bellamy, who tried to save her, but she screamed because I suppose at this point she realized she was a no-good murderer who deserved what the Beautiful Creepster had in store.


beast.jpg


Abby and Raven figured out they’d been turned in, and Abby made Raven swear that she’d go without her. Honestly, that’s likely for the best. Having a mom on the ground would really cramp everyone’s style. I bet Clarke would be so embarrassed. It’s like being that one kid whose mom always chaperone’s the school dance.

Anyway, everybody followed Charlotte’s screams to a cliff (LOL), where they had a standoff.


cut.jpg


garbage.jpg


later.jpg


angel.jpg


Did anyone else feel like Clark and Bellamy were acting like parents watching their daughter plummet to her death? They were both VERY upset over a girl they had known for a week. It’s been a week, right? That’s how long Octavia said it had been since Jasper was speared in the heart, on the FIRST DAY. If I’m wrong, please let me know.

Clarke seemed more upset over the death of Wells’ murderer than Wells himself. Haha, poor Wells. A wiener even in death.


wha oh.jpg


Bellamy was pretty set in his decision to revenge-murder our Beautiful Creepster, until a hot slice of sexual tension put a stop to it. I love how intently Finn was watching their exchange.


seriously.jpg


They decided to banish him, and my heart broke. You guys know my stance on this delightfully sinister creepster. I never want this dude off my TV screen. I want him to be in every second of this show, and every other show on television. I want them to go back in time and implant this ethereal creep into every moving picture that’s ever been made. So, the fact that he is now BANISHED FROM THE CAMP has me slightly worried.

I’m guessing the producers know his creepy value, and will keep him around either lurking by the wall, joining forces with the grounders, or building a fort out of scrap metal and pine needles and learning to whittle. If this show was about the Beautiful Creepster meticulously carving a nativity scene, I WOULD WATCH IT.

*Sigh* moving on. Kane was a-comin’ for Abby and Raven, and we learned that the shady trader had given them a bad part. I’m not sure why the storyline needed this if she was just going to use the space suit anyway, but I’m not the writers, I’m just a lady who spends too much time watching TV and eating yogurt.


normal.jpg


Abby and Kane had an intimidation contest, and then Abby was arrested.


insanity.jpg


Science.jpg


But then the pod launched! Huzzah!

Meanwhile, the kids were trying to make the wristbands contact the arc.


perfectly.jpg


whoopsie.jpg


Oh dear. Looks like there’s no possible way to contact Space Camp, and all hope is lost. And what do teens do when all hope is lost? They get it on! Octavia kissed Jasper!


man.jpg


And of course, the moment under 50% of you were waiting for...


sexy times.jpg


baby.png


RAVEN IS COMING! RAVEN IS COMING! I couldn’t be more excited, even if it was announced that ice cream makes you lose weight.

Like the show itself, this episode had its ridiculous eye-roll moments, but it was an overall treat. Like I said before, I love it when things happen. I would take cringe-worthy disaster plot lines over a safe narrative EVERY SINGLE DAY.

The 100 has passed MY 4-episode test. Has it passed yours?

See you next week for some more teen adventure time!

I'm guessing either there was only one space suit available, or maybe the Escape Pod could hold two people, but not two people who were both wearing space suits. Those suits are kinda bulky, and the interior of that Pod did not seem spacious. So maybe Raven was only able to use the suit because Abby wasn't going to be coming with her.

This is seriously the best recap I have ever read. I was literally dying of laughter. Okay, not (LITERALLY) dying, but there were chances I thought sweet mother death was going to accidentally take me away because of the mistaken indication that I was on the brink of death. 10/10 recap, certainly looking forward to more.

Love these recaps. You're hilarious.

I think the real triangle is between Murphy, Bellamy, and Clarke. Who will win Bellamy's love?

Bellarke WERE acting like Charlotte's parents even though they barely knew the kid. Weird.

I wish the writers would have have let Clarke spend more time mourning the death of Wells. Oh well.

50 percent were waiting for Finn/Clarke? No thanks. More like %5. Everyone's noticing the sexual tension between Bellamy and Clarke. #Bellarke is where it's at.

Thank you! I DO have a blog, but it's currently under maintenance. I'm terrible with computers (I think I must have been Sarah Conner in a past life), so I'm getting someone to help. It should be up and running soon! I'll put the web-link in my profile once it is.

Hey I keep trying to respond but they aren't showing up....unless you're deleting them? lol. Was just gonna say, I totally understand about the blog stuff. I started my first blog on 4/1. (www.ShipperEntertainment.com). And it's been super stressful! Like trying to keep a houseplant/pet (child?) alive. And the tech stuff, every time I learn something, they update it and I have to relearn. Anyways, you have a big fan down here in Texas! Thanks again for the witty writing!

Does anyone know what Morphine and Heroine have in common?


If you said Opium-- you'd be right. Which means they must have a lot of Poppy Seeds on this space station!


Let's all get aboard the Thailand Express!!!!

Another awesomely hilarious photo recap! You're one of the reasons I watch this show! Another is how frickin amazing it is!! And I agree with you on how much the show needs murthy, he's funny in a really creepy way!!

Why do you think "the Creepster" is so hot? His nose is exactly the same size as the rest of his face! And in a related note, are you a girl, or a gay guy? Because the dude who writes the TVD reviews is gay, so, even though his reviews are funny, we NEVER get any decent discussion about how boner-inducing all the women are!! These 100 reviews have also been very funny, but there is no horn-dogging going on over Clarke and Octavia (who BTW has the same exact name as a She-Ra villain , but this Octavia is hotter because the She-Ra one is half Octopus) and those two are like the Betty and Veronica of the post apocalypse!!
I am going to demand some affirmative action be taken here, TV.com, start letting me write reviews just to prove that straight male dudes watch these shows!!

Fair enough, although I have been "horn dogging" pretty hard on Raven! That girl is seventeen different kinds of foxy, and I will shout it from the rooftops!

My love for the creepster doesn't stem from his attractiveness, it is 100% for the fact that he is interesting and over-the-top. One look at that sinister face and you just KNOW there's something creepy going on in that head of his. (Although Richard Harmon is a handsome dude and I'm sure a delight in real life)

I am a girl with a boy's name. I understand why that's confusing.

You are right, you did sort of get horn-doggy about Raven. which added to my confusion regarding your gender! Raven is hot, and I am all for there being three girls on the Earth. So I am excited that she is coming down. Still think Octavia is like heart stoppingly beautiful. Easily the hottest out of all three. But Clarke has that "too good for you" vibe that makes her even more desirable.
BTW let's stop ignoring the big issues here, Paige Turco was in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: the Secret of the ooze. Every single time you talk about her you should mention that. (She was in Turtles 3 also, but that movie sucked and didn't have Vanilla Ice in it, so no one cares about that.)

Go Ninja, Go Ninja, GO! Do you think she's pals with Vanilla Ice? I like to think so.

I know I've ranted about this before but I really hope Richard Harmon is gone for good. His face fills me with unbelievable rage.
Also am I the only one who's waiting for the slew of teen pregnancies on this show? I mean they couldn't even provide them with food for the journey so they sure as shit won't be handing out any condoms or birth control.

Does Ravens Ship have Gps or a means to land in the exact spot the first ship did?. I mean the earth is a pretty big place what are the odds that the drop ship lands precisely where the first ship landed. And even then the first ship didnt land where it was supposed to.

She didn't land where the first ship landed, in fact, she was quite a ways off, hence why it took Bellamy from night all the way into the afternoon to get to her ship where she was conveniently still knocked unconscious after being on earth for somewhat less than a dozen hours.

So still within walking distance on a planet the size of earth. Confirmed that she also had no Gps and no way to pinpoint her landing. But shes hot so im going to stop nitpicking.

Yes, but that was still arguably 50 miles or more. My pet peeve is that within the 10+ hours it took him to get to her, she hadn't already awoken by then. I do agree though, her looks cancels out that logic.

Fear not I think the creepster will be like the guy that killed someone in Terra Nova, they banished that guy and he came back a hero. I don't think nor do I want Murphy to come back a HERO hero, but I wouldn't mind the idea of him shacking up with the grounders and going super dark trying to help the grounders kill everyone else. But if not he may live alone for a while, still be a dick, but ultimately save someone from adventure squad and be allowed to rejoin the group on conditions. I just don't think they would get rid of him, he probably just needs some off screen time to film more continuum.

Unprotected sex probably wasn't the best idea with no meds around. I really don't understand the Finn appeal, someone explain that. Does he bore anyone else but me, he seems to just be around as a flirtation for Clarke and even that is boring. Aside from how quickly they tore each others clothes off I don't really feel any passion from them, they just share little smiles and he jokes with her but I'm not feeling it. I think I'm to strongly a Clark and Bellamy shipper, them I can see a love hate passion stirring. Honestly I find Clarke boring and annoying too, why can't this show be about Bellamy the entire time?

So Bellamy has an extreme big brother complex, I'm starting to think he might be a superhero in disguise. I am solo glad that him and Clarke are finally working together instead of stupidly fighting all the time. I will wait for the relationship to develop.

Ok I'm probably reading way more into this than I should, but I think that Clarke and Belamy were disproportionately upset about Charlotte because htey are both the "parent/leader" figures and they feel responsible for the 100, or at least their little sector of the 100. Charlotte represented a sort of innocence, currupted by their rapidly forming society that in event is replicating the society they lived in on the ark, as they struggle to build it. Bellamy is the realist and Clarke the idealist.

I was into the show until they all of a sudden started showing a new black dude. (that's when you know one is getting killed). Later that episode a little kid stabs a brotha in the neck...unbelievable. Then the very next episode the white guy PISSES ON the black kid. You can hate what I'm sayin...give me the thumbs down...Doesn't matter, because that ain't right. I turned it off and deleted the recording immediately. This show is DEAD to me. Also, yet again another show with no black women on it. What am I saying...maybe once they kill this dude they will replace him with a really fat unattractive black girl as most shows tend to do now. (I am black...not stupid)

There's one more big thing that was bugging the Hades out of me this episode: our 100 96 beautiful, horny teens are in the middle of an old-growth forest. How convenient that there just happens to be a bomb shelter in the vicinity with no obvious signs of associated structural ruins.

Maybe whoever built the shelter, knowing that nuclear war was near wanted their little safe haven away from other people and hidden in the woods. But I don't know, maybe they hated people?

Great review! Keep 'em comin'!

So I gather that Raven's eager to get to ground 'cause Flinn is (soon to be was?) her boyfriend. Yeah, that little tryst with Clarke won't get awkward at all!

What, no mention that Kane's mom leads some sort of tree-hugging pseudo religious cult?

While I can get down on some of the science, I'm starting to groove a bit on getting to know more about the social and economic dynamics of the Ark.

Also I don't think Raven's space suit helmet was properly secured to the suit. Think that would be sort of important if one's escape pod pressure regulator were Tango Uniform.

So excited that Raven is coming! She could really shake things up, the girl is resourceful and no pushover either.

Agreed on Tim Barlett. Thats one dreamboat I could see joining the adventure squad, maybe making a 'terrific trio' with Monty and Jaspar. They could solve crimes! And then, since he would become all persons favourite character, suffer the most upsetting death in television history.

Or maybe the actor is not even in Vancouver. *sigh* We can dream.

Although it doesn't seem like I have to (dream) with this show. No one has really specified goals (from which you can begin predicting characters behaviours for example; a show like revenge or a show with a 'cure') Their only goal is to survive, which mean essentially anything can happen alongside that major goal. To the characters, to their community stability, their personality/mindset and relationships.

So much material to work with! I honestly can't wait.
Great re-cap by the way.

*particularly loved 'not in public man' and 'She's working those jeans' Kane's gotta have a passion for something other than mass murder and manipulation?
