The CW’s The 100 has finally found its stride in the midst of its fifth season, which is set six years after the world’s nuclear power plants have degraded and unleashed a nuclear storm, attempting to wipe out the last of human civilization. Although the storm has passed, different threats once again fall from the sky, and the remaining survivors must choose between old allies and new enemies.
This latest season features beloved characters such as Clarke (Eliza Taylor), Octavia (Marie Avgeropolous), Raven (Lindsey Morgan), and Bellamy (Bob Morley) but in a darker and pitiless light; survival has never been more ruthless. As every episode progresses, the plot continues to thicken as alliances are constantly broken and later reformed by even the closest of friends and family.
The 100 is no longer shy or bashful in its storytelling after this alternate direction, but rather is fierce and as formidable as ever.
