Lexa's Return and Other Things We Learned About Season 3 of 'The 100' at Comic-Con
This is going to be the most awesome season yet.
Fans of the CW's post-apocalyptic drama The 100 were out in full force at Comic-Con on Friday to watch the stars of the show dish on what's coming up next season. Here's what Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley, Ricky Whittle, Lindsey Morgan, Marie Avgeropoulos, Isaiah Washington, and The 100 EP Jason Rothenberg had to say during jam-packed panel.
Lexa will be back and reconciliation is possible!
Good news, 100 fans! Just when we thought we lost Alycia Debnam-Carey to zombie-fighting on Fear of the Walking Dead, EP Jason Rothenberg has officially confirmed that Lexa will return for a third season. Don't assume that Clexa will be back and better than ever, though. There will be "fireworks" according to Eliza Taylor (Clarke), and not the good kind. "Reconciliation is possible," according to Rothenberg. So don't be too depressed about the sinking of this ship.
Don't expect a Clarke and Bellamy romance any time soon.
Despite admitting that the duo make a "good team," Bob Morley (Bellamy) has confirmed that it's going to take a whole lot for them to patch up their relationship. Clarke gave Bellamy the confidence to make decisions, but the "trust is gone." Eliza also added that "Clarke isn't thinking about anyone at this point." Whomp, whomp. She's got a lot of splainin' to do.
There will be a time jump in the season premiere.
And maybe a literal jump, as Ricky Whittle (Lincoln) revealed an "intense stunt" in his first scene during premiere night.
Lincoln will still be a peacekeeper.
Kicking ass and taking names is merely a means of survival. Whittle says that his character still wants peace, but is put in situations where there "is no good choice." Could he be the light among all of the darkness? We'll have to see what his character has in store.
Season 3 is going to be "awesome" for Raven.
Sure, she's disabled and grieving Finn, but Lindsey Morgan claims that season 3 will be Raven's "most awesome yet" as she attempts to re-build herself "piece by piece."
Isaiah Washington never wants to know what's happening to his character in advance.
Washington (Jaha) says that he doesn't want it to "influence his journey." The actor also admitted to not having cable and not watching the show in realtime. (This explains why he's always late to answer fan questions on Twitter!).
Expect the upcoming season to return to its Sci-Fi roots.
We started in space, but the show took a major departure to showcase war on land. Fans will be excited to know that Rothenberg is having the show return to its roots. What this means exactly is still unknown, but we're going to predict that the cast is preparing for lift-off.
Don't expect the characters to ever be "good people."
It's the struggle to survive. Depressingly, Eliza commented that "deep down they're all good, but in a terrible situation. They will never be normal, nice people ever again." Don't expect the depressing tone of the show to change any time soon, folks.
