Excuse us as we go and re-watch The 100‘s season three premiere…why is this show so addicting?!
Speaking with Variety, executive producer and showrunner Jason Rothenberg opened up about making it clear that Clarke (Eliza Taylor) is bisexual, after she sleeps with Niylah, the woman from the trading post.
“I found some of the internet discussion interesting, in that people questioned whether Clarke was in fact bisexual, because I suppose to some it seemed that Lexa [Alycia Debnam-Carey] instigated [their kiss]. I knew Clarke was on this walkabout in season three, running away from herself and hiding from what she has done, hiding psychologically from herself. Changing her appearance, because people recognized her when she would blow into an outpost or wherever it may be. And she was probably [having sex] and drinking her way across the post-apocalyptic earth, to try to escape. That was escapist sex in that first episode. I knew that was going to happen,” he explained.
Jason continued, “At first, I didn’t know whether it was going to be a male or a female partner. But it did become important to make it a female partner, because I felt like it needed it to be clear that she is bisexual. I usually don’t make decisions based on that. But I didn’t want there to be any doubt about it.”
