The 100’s Decision to Sideline Clarke is Part of a Larger Season 7 Problem

Over the course of The 100, we’ve watched Clarke develop up, turning into a pacesetter, a mom, and a monster by turns. Prepared to make troublesome decisions and commit horrible atrocities within the title of the folks she loves, Clarke is a survivor who has saved the world and misplaced all the things greater than as soon as. She’s failed spectacularly at occasions but additionally fought to construct a life out of the ashes of these numerous destructions, carried her weight in grief, and picked herself up within the face of horrible odds again and again. Clarke’s a hero who has greater than earned that moniker, and on some stage, we have been probably all hoping this closing season of The 100 may lastly give her some peace.

Properly, the joke’s on us, as a result of in the mean time, she’s probably not doing a lot of something.

The 100 has all the time been deft at balancing tales between an ever-evolving forged whereas conserving a core group of characters firmly at its heart. This season, that’s largely nonetheless true, a minimum of within the sense that the narrative is juggling a big selection of views and plot arcs. Nevertheless it does appear – and admittedly a few of this seems to be out of the present’s management, due to exterior occasions affecting the collection’ actors – as if Season 7 is purposefully ignoring most of the characters that must be central, narratively talking, to whatever ending it’s trying to craft.

Hope, Diyoza and Octavia’s newfound household is attention-grabbing, and the story of their time on Sky Ring is compelling. So is the bottle episode that backfills Bellamy’s misplaced time and depicts his bizarre non secular conversion. The hour that offers us a extra detailed take a look at the world of Cadogan and his Disciples on Bardo is each disturbing and entertaining. And I beloved “Anaconda,” though it’s an episode that solely exists to function the backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off we may never see. But, though all these issues are true – that is additionally the ultimate season of your complete present! It’s inconceivable to really feel like these tales – nearly as good as they’re – deserve whole episodes to themselves when there are treasured few hours remaining on this universe.

With only a handful of episodes left, it’s ludicrous that we’ve seen so little of Clarke in Season 7, notably in any case she went by way of within the earlier season. (Most of which we’ve barely seen the fallout from.) She misplaced her mom, almost died (once more), was possessed by the consciousness of a Prime that deliberate to take over her physique endlessly, and was as soon as once more liable for the deaths of numerous folks, in addition to the entire destruction of Sanctum’s (admittedly, yikes) lifestyle.
