More deaths are expected to come in the upcoming episodes of The CW’s “The 100.”
Before the show took a two-week break, Marcus (Henry Ian Cusick) together with Lincoln (Ricky Whittle) and Sinclair (Alessandro Juliani) were put in a tricky situation when they were imprisoned by Chancellor Pike (Michael Beach). To make matters more complicated, a memo was also released stating that Marcus is to be executed to serve as an example to anyone else who dares to cross the Chancellor.
A glimmer of hope came though for the trio in the form of Bellamy (Bob Marley). In a promo clip released for the new episode titled “Stealing Fire,” Bellamy is seen in a discussion with his sister Octavia (Marie Avgerpoulos) hinting that the former may be switching sides in the end. Unfortunately, it would now seem unlikely as spoilers reveal that Bellamy dies even before he can plan an escape route. Surprisingly, it is his sister who spells his fate as she reportedly stabs Bellamy on the neck during their discussion. The tip came from a Periscope user named Caroline Belle who recorded a portion of the panel of the post apocalyptic show in the recently held WonderCon 2016 in Los Angeles and generously shared it on her webpage.
It is interesting to find out what the consequences of Octavia’s decision to kill his brother are. As revealed in the official synopsis for “Stealing Fire,” it is hinted that she will be experiencing a devastating outcome from her actions.
Meanwhile show creator Jason Rothenberg continues to apologize to fans who are still devastated over the brutal death of Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey) earlier in the season. In a lengthy blog post, Rothenberg said that although he stands on the show’s storytelling, he still expresses regret that fans feel sad on how it was handled.
“Despite my reasons, I still write and produce television for the real world where negative and hurtful tropes exist. And I am very sorry for not recognizing this as fully as I should have. Knowing everything I know now, Lexa’s death would have played out differently,” Rothenberg wrote.
“The 100” season 3 will be back on air this week, March 31.
