SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!
Tonight’s second-part finale of The 100 left us utterly speechless.
Between Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy’s (Bob Morley) decision to use radiation to kill all the Mountain Men – including Maya! (Eve Harlow) – and her gunshot to Dante’s chest, it was a finale full of surprises all around.
Not to mention, Clarke decided to pack her bags and head out on her own, while Jaha (Isaiah Washington) and Murphy (Richard Harmon) both encountered clues to what happened to life on Earth 97 years ago.
JJJ caught up with executive producer Jason Rothenberg who answered some of our burning questions and gave us a preview of what’s to come in season three!
JustJaredJr.com: Let’s talk about Clarke first. She’s had to make some really tough and not-so-popular decisions this season for the sake of her people. And now she’s leaving. Tell us about her journey and where she’s headed!
Jason Rothenberg: There are two really big decisions, right? The first of course is the decision to pull the lever and kill everyone in Mount Weather to save her people. And the second, as a result of that and really everything she’s had to do since she’s been on the ground, to just break away and get away from it all. For me, the season has always been about…I knew going into the season that Clarke was going to have to do something so horrible – although it was going to achieve her goal of saving her friends – ultimately, in the victory of that, she wouldn’t be able to celebrate. She wouldn’t feel relief, or happiness, or excitement. She was going to have to be pushed so far and so dark in order to get it done. The result is that is, at the end of this episode, when everyone is walking into the gates, she refuses to go. She was unable to be reminded of what she’s had to do by looking at their faces every day. It’s probably the first selfish thing Clarke’s done since we’ve known her. And I think she’s earned that on some level. In season three, we will find her out there in the world – whether she’s just on a walkabout, just sort of Rambo-style living in a cabin in the words, or whether we find her on some type of other course or mission, we need to wait and see. But it’s a very real choice for her to break away from these people and go off.
