The 100 – Season 7 Episode 14

“A Sort of Homecoming” The 100 returns to familiar surroundings and has the characters consider what they want to call home. If the final season of The 100 were to be defined by one thing it would be wasted time. Despite the dwindling episode count the writers seem oddly content to waste time haphazardly exploring…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 13

“Blood Giant” The 100 returns from another hiatus and reunites much of the cast in a single location while addressing the various plot threads at play. For some of the runtime of this episode there was an old school The 100 vibe to it in terms of it being a frenetic crisis that was challenging…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 12

“The Stranger” The 100 deals with the fallout of Bellamy’s shift in allegiance as Sheidheda continues to force his authority on the people of Sanctum. This season has been massively consistent in overall quality as my previous reviews have outlined but among the consistently excellent elements of it have been JR Bourne’s performance as Sheidheda…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 11

“Etherea” The 100 reveals the fate of Bellamy and chronicles an arduous journey to the summit of a mountain. Reports of Bellamy’s death being greatly exaggerated shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone watching the show at this point. The scene where he appeared to die was deliberately staged with a wormhole directly behind him…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 10

“A Little Sacrifice” The 100 deals with Indra’s efforts to stop Sheidheda on Sanctum while those on Bardo deal with a genocidal Echo. This season’s Sheidheda plot has been great showcase for JR Bourne who owns every scene he has as that character. His performance is so strong that it elevates material that doesn’t hold…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 9

“The Flock” The 100 shows the journey to becoming a disciple on Bardo as Sanctum deals with a hostage situation. One of the more frustrating things about this season is how little overall forward progression there is on some of the plots. Many steps forward are countered by show turning back the clock to detail…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 8

“Anaconda” The 100 takes a break from the main plot of the season and turns the clock back to the time of the first Apocalypse in order to set up a potential spin-off. Backdoor pilots are a strange beast. They are episodes of a TV show designed to set up the major elements of a…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 7

“The Queen’s Gambit” The 100 continues to heighten the tension in Sanctum as the Bardo prisoners have little to do but discuss their issues with one another. This season remains a difficult one to understand just because of the volume of plot being burned through. So far the strongest episodes have been the ones that…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 6

“Nakara” The 100 catches up with Clarke’s group on the ice planet as Diyoza’s whereabouts become known and the situation in Sanctum continues to deteriorate. At last we learn what happened to Diyoza and, to begin with, it’s more or less the same thing that happened to Octavia. Those in Bardo tried to forcibly extract…

The 100 – Season 7 Episode 5

“Welcome to Bardo” The 100 properly introduces Bardo and its complicated command over time as Sanctum destabilises even further thanks to Sheidheda. Without a doubt the most difficult thing to keep track of this season is the timeline. There are different planets where time passes at different rates and rules around what characters can remember…
