The 100 – Season 3 Episode 11

“Nevermore” The 100 picks up from last week with Raven fully under the control of A.L.I.E. and the attempt to free her from that influence. This show is at its strongest when focusing on the characters and how their decisions have led them to the point they are currently at. Everyone has been through a…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 10

“Fallen” The 100 deals with the fallout of the major character deaths over the past few episodes and moves forward with the surrounding stories. Lincoln’s death hangs over this episode in really significant ways focused through Bellamy and Octavia’s fractured relationship. The opening scene is really effective at showing just how damaged this is when…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 9

“Stealing Fire” The 100 returns after a break to pick up the thread of Lexa’s death and start to deal with who will take her place as Commander. Arguably this show is at its best when it deals with the political landscape of this Post Apocalyptic Earth. Lexa’s death has created a bit of a…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 8

“Terms and Conditions” The 100 returns the focus to Arkadia as loyalties are divided over the Grounder blockade as ordered by Lexa. As the episode begins the blockade has been fully established and some soldiers have already been killed because they tried to push the Grounders back. The ultimatum given is to hand over Pike…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 7

“Thirteen” The 100 expands the overall mythology of the show and develops the complicated relationship between Clarke and Lexa with a sprinkling of the political situation thrown in for good measure. Clarke and Lexa’s relationship is the central focus of the episode and rightly so considering this is -presumably- the last time Lexa will be…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 6

“Bitter Harvest” The 100 expands on the shifting loyalties within the various groups as things settle down for a very brief moment. One thing is for sure, nobody on The 100 will have a quiet life for long. A massive conflict between the Grounders and Arkadia is inevitable and stopping that from happening doesn’t seem…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 5

“Hakeldama” The 100 continues to build the fragile peace between the Grounders and the Sky People by dealing with the fallout of the previous episode. I’m a little late with this review but I’ve been busy so something had to give. A major aim of this episode seems to be attempting to explain the actions…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 4

“Watch the Thrones” The 100 fully introduces the Ice Queen and forces Lexa to fight for the right to lead her people. The episode wastes no time before Queen Nia (Brenda Strong) declares a vote of no confidence in Lexa. This is backed by a number of ambassadors but a unanimous result is far from…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 3

“Ye Who Enter Here” The 100 further expands the scope of the political landscape that is evolving as Clark has a tension filled reunion with Lexa. Season 3 is positively exhausting and we’re only on the third episode. The beauty of The 100 is that it’s able to juggle a lot of moving parts while…

The 100 – Season 3 Episode 2

“Wanheda Part 2” The 100 concludes the opening of season 3 with an exploration of existing dynamics while increasing the overall scope of the show. New elements are introduced almost immediately when Bellamy, Kane, Indra, Jasper and Monty are forced to leave their vehicle. Monty is almost killed but is spared because one of the…
