TV show trailer for The CW‘s The 100 season finale. The first season of The 100 seems set to go out with a bang, as the clash of cultures, between the Exiles and the Grounders, takes a turn to what may be all out war. Having been odds, over matters of Exile self-governance, then finding some common ground, over the Grounder threat, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) & Bellamy (Bob Morley) must again iron out differences over how to deal with that threat, now that a potential slaughter seems imminent.
While the trailer does make a case for some serious season close-out carnage, it does not make clear exactly who the combatants will be. Clearly there will be an assault on the Exile camp, but scale of the conflict could be as simple as an Exile-Grounder skirmish, before the real threat arrives, or more of a Battle of the Five Armies sort of deal (not to raise expectations beyond reason, or anything).
Whatever the case, as far as cast members Lindsey Morgan (Raven) and Ricky Whittle (Lincoln) are concerned, it will be pretty memorable.
Lindsey Morgan on the finale:
I can’t tell you that much because I just saw the screening of it and oh my gosh, it was so good, I don’t want to ruin anything. One: it is epic. It literally feels like you are watching a movie. I was like, “Am I watching Lord of the Rings here or Game of Thrones?” This is insane. It’s beautiful and so cinematic, which is awesome.
Two: it blows the entire season out of the water. If you thought the season was good the finale is just going to blow up your brain basically.
Number three: as far as plot goes, I feel like in the finale we see every character fighting for their survival. Tthe whole season they have been fighting for their survival, but especially in the finale. Everyone is fighting and dealing with their own journey of survival in their own way. Maybe physically, and maybe battling others, or the elements or each other, or themselves, but everyone is dealing with how am I going to make it through today, alive?
Ricky Whittle on Lincoln, and finale fatalities:
He dropped a few hints at different tribes that we might be witnessing in the two-part finale. It’s going to be very epic and it’s going to be very tragic.
There is going to be a lot of loss. We’ve already got Finn in trouble and Clarke in a trap, so are we going to lose both of them? Are we going to lose one of them? Are we going to lose more back at the camp? Are we going to lose Lincoln himself? The finale is going to epic and not everyone will survive it, and that’s all I can say. You will experience loss and tragedy, I promise.
I will guarantee you that these are the two best episodes, not just of this season, but some of the best episodes of TV I’ve ever seen. It really is an incredible finale from the writing to the cast performances to the way it’s lit to the way it’s shot, everything down to the score, the music, it tugs on the heartstrings. I teared up even though I knew what was coming. It’s beautiful. It takes you through every emotion to the point where you forget you’re watching TV. It’s like watching two movies. I was shocked, I was screaming at my TV and I was just absolutely in awe. The great thing about [executive producer] Jason [Rothenberg] and our writers is that they give the audience what they need, not what they want.
Even from series cast members, this is high praise indeed. I’ve had a lukewarm take on the series, thus far, so I can stand to be pleasantly surprised, by an “epic” climax. Of course, such a surprise only becomes possible by me not getting my hopes up.
‘We Are Grounders, pt. 2’ also features Marie Avgeropoulos, Thomas McDonell, Devon Bostick, Dichen Lachman, and Joseph Gatt, and airs Wednesday, at 9.00pm, EST, on The CW.
