The one death that struck a chord with viewers in “The 100” season 3 was Lexa’s (Alycia Debnam-Carey). It was a strange sequence. One minute she was sharing an intimate moment with Clarke (Eliza Taylor), and in the next, Titus (Neil Sandilands) accidentally shot her while he was aiming for Clarke. The death was certainly controversial, and the LGBTQ community was outraged because the show had been teasing the pairing of the two only for Lexa to get killed off after sharing a love scene with Clarke.
Several sources say Lexa may actually come back in season 4. This speculation is actually based on what executive producer/show creator Jason Rothenberg said at the San Diego Comic-Con about plot elements that could bring Lexa back to the show. The problem for fans who are pinning their hopes on this statement is that Rothenberg has also stated that the character will not appear in the upcoming season.
Of course, he said that back in July, so there may be a chance that he has changed his mind since then. Will Clarke and Lexa get the happy ending the fans want to see?
A few months ago, Rothenberg told Hypable that Clarke will eventually find someone, but he did not say when that would be.
“She’s not really ready to jump into another relationship. But at the end of the day, she’s 18. She’s an 18-year-old child still, in many ways, and so she will move on, for sure. And I can say, as the voice of Lexa the person who created that character that Lexa would want her to. Lexa would want Clarke to be happy again. As I think we all would want the people who we love to be able to not forget us but to move on and find happiness.”
The CW has yet to announce the premiere date for “The 100” season 4, but a source says it may air in February or March next year.
