The 100' Season 7 Countdown: Extended trailer hints at interstellar travel and the final war for humanity
The wait for the trailer of the final season of 'The 100' was long, but fans would agree: the wait was worth it. Filled with shots of the new world (and worlds since it was confirmed that the anomaly is a wormhole), the trailer also featured multiple throwbacks to earlier seasons, and we couldn't help but feel a little emotional.
Will our heroes finally be able to "do better" as the show comes to an end? We'll have to wait and watch.
While the most memorable use of the phrase has been from Monty Green (Christopher Larkin) and between Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy Blake (Bob Morley), diehard fans may recall that the words were first spoken by Finn Collins (Thomas McDonell) way back in the first season.
We had already gotten a few details from the teaser trailer, but the new extended trailer gives us so much more. It begins with a shot from space of the anomaly and then quickly shifts to Clarke saying a few words as she creates a memorial for her mother, Abby Griffin (Paige Turco).
There is then a shot of greenery with what looks like rings in the sky — we know that Sanctum is on a moon and does not have rings — and this could be the first indication of interstellar travel.
We also see that Charmaine Diyoza (Ivana Miličević) is back! She holds Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos) down and asks, "Why aren't we enough for you?" This raises a couple of questions, with the most obvious one being, who is the "we" Diyoza is referring to?
Has she been happy and well this whole time? And why is she so angry at Bellamy?
As we spotted in the teaser trailer, Echo (Tasya Teles) does sport a new hairstyle this season and we like it. But what went down for it to happen?
The last time we saw a character go through a major change in hairstyle was when Clarke chopped off her locks during the six-year period when she was alone with Madi Griffin (Lola Flannery) after the second Praimfaya. Could Echo also have been taken through the anomaly and gone through some kind of conditioning like Diyoza?
What follows is a handful of throwback shots, including when the 100 delinquents were first sent to planet Earth in the very first episode of the show. A few other shots from previous seasons can also be seen.
We also see Raven Reyes (Lindsey Morgan) tell Clarke that the anomaly is a wormhole and that it can lead "everywhere." There is another shot later on of Raven and Clarke together, with the former asking, "when does it end?" Clarke then tells a tearful Raven, "It doesn't end here."
We see Clarke sentencing Russell Lightbourne (J R Bourne) to death for his crimes, someone self-immolating, Octavia telling someone, "I can't let you die to save me," Raven telling someone to "get out of there, now" and a shot of a man's skin burning off, akin to radiation effects.
We also see a Echo with her new hairstyle screaming and, more importantly, the symbols of the anomaly are spotted across her face. Suffice to say, the anomaly itself could be a major character this season.
What is odd is that there are very few sightings of Bellamy in the trailer — either his scenes have too many spoilers, or worse, a terrible fate awaits him. We certainly hope the latter isn't the case.
The excitement is high and in less than two weeks, this final adventure will begin and we cannot wait for it. Watch the trailer below.
