“Lexa has influenced her in so many ways,” EP/showrunner Jason Rothenberg shared with EW about the impact Lexa made on Clarke.
“The fact that Clarke is trying to transcend her tribalism is really a direct result of her relationship with Lexa. Lexa helped her see the world differently, and vice versa. And yet we do need to sort of move on.
“And so, she will eventually do that, but I’m not gonna say whether or not it’ll happen this season.”
He adds, “The truth is that Lexa was the love of her life, but [Clarke] is only 18 years old. We move on, we figure out a way to compartmentalize, and you try and you don’t forget. The person should never forget.”

“We’ll see Kane and Abby’s relationship deepening, and Monty and Harper, and Murphy and Emori are real relationships in the show,” Jason adds.
“We don’t tell story ever from the perspective of, ‘This is a show about relationships or a soap opera,’ at all. It’s always been a show about survival, and it always will be a show about survival. But in life, we love and we have relationships, and that’s true of these characters, too.”
The 100 returns on February 1st on The CW.
