Clarke won't be #ForeverAlone!

Things clearly move fast on The 100, especially in the romance department. Showrunner Jason Rothenberg recently revealed how Clarke (Eliza Taylor) will move on from her heartbreak after Lexa's (Alycia Debnam-Carey) death.

“The truth is that Lexa was the love of her life, but [Clarke] is only 18 years old,” Rothenberg said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “We move on, we figure out a way to compartmentalize, and you try and you don’t forget. The person should never forget.”

Remembering Lexa will ultimately drive Clarke to overcome her obstacles in the forthcoming season. Many devoted fans of the show were crushed by the Heda's untimely death, but it seems that her presence will continue to linger on The 100. Whether Lexa will make another appearance on the show remains unknown, but it sure would be nice to see #Clexa reunited once more.

“Lexa has influenced her in so many ways,” Rothenberg added. “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.”

Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens in Season 4.

The 100 returns to The CW on Feb. 1 at 9 p.m.
