'The 100 ' season 6 will see the gang choosing peace over violence, promises actor Tasya Teles
Those we know who survived the third apocalypse of Earth went on a cryogenic sleep for 125 odd years and woke up to find a beautiful new moon that can be their new home. Their survival was only possible because Monty (Christopher Larkin) and Harper (Chelsey Reist) made certain sacrifices
Season 6 of 'The 100' has introduced a whole new world — literally — and fans have been almost as wary of trusting the new "allies" as our protagonists have been. However, if Tasya Teles who plays Echo is to be believed, we can put our mind at ease because unlike all the previous seasons, this one will be less about abrasive conflict and more about doing better.
Those we know who survived the third apocalypse of Earth went on a cryogenic sleep for 125 odd years and woke up to find a beautiful new moon that can be their new home. Their survival was only possible because Monty (Christopher Larkin) and Harper (Chelsey Reist) made certain sacrifices, and in the very last video message for those who survived, he asked them to "do better", which they are hoping to follow to the dot.
Despite starting all their interactions with guns and violence so far, this time around, they will see attempts at peace being made. "I think that we will see [peaceful talks] this year. I think that's what they are leading with, they are trying to do better. I think before, it was more a question of trying to survive, they were a lot more abrasive conflict, " Teles tells MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), adding, "This year I think the conflict lies within each of them and they have to face up to things that they have been shoving away and things that they have been hiding... things they have been running from within themselves."
"It is interesting to see how that manifests because in a way the war is within themselves as they try to do things differently. Of course, this still produces a lot of problems within the main group and of course that will trickle into having problems with these new people that they encounter," she elaborates, further reminding us that 'The 100' has always been about "different worlds colliding and people deciding or deciding to make peace with one another, and how much we're able to understand one another and work towards the common goal of peace and comfort for each other."
Echo, for one, has been an exemplification of this evolution and change. We remember a time when she was the enemy and expressed her hatred for the Sky People quite explicitly. However, after five years in space with Bellamy (Bob Morley) and the other Skaikru members, she is a changed woman. "The thing I love the most about Echo is how resilient she is and she is always trying to grow and change and be a better person, and I think its an important message for everybody that people can change and people can be good and she exemplifies that," says Teles, further elaborating on how it upsets her that Echo's beauty is marred by the fact that people use "the Bellarke thing" as a reflection of who she is.
Season 6 episode 4 of 'The 100' titled 'The Face Behind the Glass' airs on Tuesday, May 14, at 9 pm/8c on The CW, after which it will be added to The CW app.
