The 100 Fans Turn Anger and Heartbreak Into Positive Action

The 100 plummeted into deep darkness on last week's "Thirteen." For a show that's inherently tragic with deaths of main characters and frequent massacres, the death of the Commander of the 13 Clans, Lexa, was the most depressing and heartbreaking of them all. For comparison, nearly the entire human race was wiped on the Earth in the same hour and it was just a tiny blip on the dreary scale.

Lexa was a fierce leader who was able to bring together the warring Grounder Clans and lead them to peace. She led with her head, but opened her heart to Clarke kom Skaikru. Their relationship was complicated from start to finish due to their loyalty first to their own people, but they overcame the hurdles and finally succumbed to their love for each other.

When Lexa was killed, so was their beautiful relationship.

I'm not going to get into the controversy surrounding Lexa's death right now, but what happened to her on The 100 crushed hearts, brought many tears and a lot of anger. Out of that rage, social media became a war zone which was disheartening to see.

That's why I'm glad that something good is coming out of this controversy. Whether you agree or disagree with how Lexa's death was handled, it doesn't matter and it doesn't matter what Clan you belong to in The 100 fandom. We can all come together and honor Heda by supporting a very important charity.

The 100 Interview: Lindsey Morgan Says Raven's in Hell

Raven just can't get a break, can she? She got blown up AGAIN! If she was in both emotional and physical pain before, how will she live with herself after the Mount Weather explosion? Her path of recovery has hit a major roadblock.

I sat down with Lindsey Morgan to discuss Raven's journey in The 100 Season 3. You can find the first part of the interview here: Lindsey Morgan Interview at BuddyTV.

The decision to unlock the missiles at Mount Weather provided an escape for Raven in "Ye Who Enter Here. "Raven finally has a purpose and finally has a task, finally has something that she can put her mind on that isn't how much am I hurting today," Morgan said.

Of course, that all changed.

"When it's a total twist and Mount Weather blows instead of Polis, Raven is just in pieces, just absolutely in pieces and feels how could I have let this happen and how could I have failed so many people," Morgan said. "It's almost like she was at the rock bottom before and now she's in hell."

Will Raven be able to move on from that? It's going to be a challenge for her. "There were talks of Raven of being suicidal ... that's where her mentality would be. What happens isn't that, obviously, but it's drastic enough. Raven does something so kinda un-Raven to alleviate her pain. She's trying to do anything she can," Morgan said.

Is there any glimmer of hope that Raven can find happiness? Morgan teased, "There is. [Fans] will see that. It's a really interesting journey. I wish I could tell you more about how you're going to get both. You're gonna see Raven happy and you're gonna see Raven miserable and you're gonna see Raven in a whole new light."

When asked to summarize Raven's journey through The 100 Season 3, Morgan summed it up as "Somebody you wouldn't expect to hit rock bottom, won't tell anyone. Then finds a way out that has dire consequences."

The 100 airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on the CW.

The 100 Interview: Isaiah Washington Teases "Jaha is in Possession of the Bigger Gun"

Jaha left his people behind and went on a quest in the search of the City of Light. As The 100 Season 3 begins, he claims to know all about the City of Light after coming in contact with ALIE. This summer, Isaiah Washington shed some light on Jaha's journey this season.

What's going on with Jaha in Season 3?

Washington:  Jaha is in possession of the bigger gun. He's no longer Chancellor, but he has a lady in a red dress and they have-- or he has a nuclear warhead.

Will he be using it for good or for evil?

Washington: Jaha is in the possession of the bigger gun and he has access to the lady in red, artificial intelligence, you figure it out. You know his mindset is a little different. He threw someone off a boat. And the only reason Murphy survives is because he can row. Jaha's bottom line has become extremely chilling.

What about his spiritual journey?

Washington: That's what I'm thinking is so fun about Jaha right now. The juxtapose of what happens when someone is so ensconced in their beliefs that they are willing to threaten and kill and sacrifice other human lives. We are talking about the history of man. What happened when someone goes, "Sometimes you gotta do the wrong thing to do the right thing." How do you get out that rabbit hole?

The 100 airs Thursdays at 9 pm ET on the CW.

The 100 Season 3: Alycia Debnam-Carey Returns as Lexa

Last season, Alycia Debnam-Carey first appeared on The 100 by hiding Lexa's identity from Jaha and Kane while they were imprisoned by the Grounders. From that moment through Lexa's betrayal of Clarke at Mount Weather, Debnam-Carey has become a fan favorite on the show, especially by those who would like to see Clarke and Lexa become a romantic item again (aka Clexa fans).

Given Debnam-Carey's starring role on Fear the Walking Dead, there's been some concern about how many episodes she'd be available to appear in during The 100 Season 3. Last week at the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour, I spoke with Executive Producer Jason Rothenberg and asked him about how many episodes she would appear.

He didn't provide an exact episode count, but did offer some insight into how much Lexa will play into the upcoming season. "I think she did as many for us this season-- or has done as many for us this season as she did last season," Rothenberg said.

"I talked to AMC a lot about-- begged on hands and knees, 'Please let us use her. The character is amazing and she has totally taken off as an internet sensation.' I'm really grateful they let her come hang out with us today [at TCA]."

According to IMDB, Debnam-Carey appeared in nine episodes during The 100 Season 2. If she's in close to that number this season, fans shouldn't fear at all. Her commitment to Fear the Walking Dead hasn't prevented her from being a force on The 100.

Now the question is .... Will Clarke be able to forgive Lexa? In a previously published interview, Eliza Taylor (Clarke) stated, "I'll be seeing [Lexa] but it's not gonna be fun for Clarke at all. She's really torn up about it. She loved Lexa and she was betrayed. It's going to be a really shaky reunion."

One thing that's sure is that it will be a wild ride!

Tune in to watch The 100 Season 3 premiere, "Wanheda: Part 1," live Thursday, January 21 at 9 pm ET on the CW.

The 100's Henry Ian Cusick Teases 'Doomed' Romance for Kane

Kane has transitioned from one of the most hated characters on The 100 to one of the most beloved. 
As he has evolved as a character, his relationship and connection with Abby has shifted and become much deeper. In The 100 Season 3 extended trailer, Kane and Abby kiss! 

While it's unclear what draws them together, it's a moment viewers wouldn't have seen coming in the early episodes of the series, yet one that has become highly anticipated. Will it be smooth sailing for Kabby?

That's not likely. This is The 100! Nothing is easy, simple or as expected .... ever.

Henry Ian Cusick teased a romance for Kane this season while on The 100 set when they were filming Season 3 Episode 9. Cusick doesn't specify that the relationship is with Abby, so it could be with someone else.... 

Check out his witty response about Kane's romantic future.

What do you think? Disappointed? Intrigued? Happy?
