'The 100' Season 7 Episode 11: Transcendent beings or 'Lumiere'? Humanoid light figures leave fans confused
Spoilers for 'The 100' Season 7 Episode 11 'Etherea'
This week's episode of 'The 100' — the eleventh episode of the seventh and final season of The CW's post-apocalyptic show — finally featured the return of Bob Morley as Bellamy Blake as the show revealed that Bellamy was indeed alive and was instead marooned on a planet named Etherea. Bellamy is not alone — he has a Disciple (Jonathan Scarfe) to accompany him. The Disciple is a huge follower of Bill Cadogan (John Pyper-Ferguson) and his principles, so what that will do to Bellamy remains to be seen.
The Disciple and Bellamy spend months in the cave, long enough for their hair and beards to grow out. When they first got to the cave, they went deeper inside, which showed three sources of light in the shape of people. According to the Disciple's Bible, this is the Cave of Ascent and the three sources of light were people who "ascended". In the beginning, Bellamy was still skeptical. However, months into their time in the cave, he humors Dustat and joins in on the prayer.
These "beings of light" seem to be something from another show as fans tweeted out their confusion with what was shown. One fan tweeted, "#The100 Ummm alien technology?" Another wrote, "Ok this weird glowing stuff is kinda catching my attention now. #The100." One fan questioned, "What the frick is this? #The100."

Some fans took to comparing 'The 100' with other shows or universes. One fan joked, "Bellamys actually travelling to the marvel universe #the100." Another opined, "Lumiere, is that u? #the100 #BellamyIsBack."

Whatever the case, it certainly looks like Season 7 is going all out with the production budget. Are these beings of light actually transcendent aliens? Bellamy seemed to hallucinate Cadogan and his mother, Aurora Blake (Monique Ganderton) who leads him to the light, which then cuts to Bellamy and the Disciple seeing that the storm broke.
We are not sure whether we like the direction in which Bellamy is headed but this just makes us all the more curious about how the show will choose to end, and what Bellamy's role in the Last War will be.
'The 100' airs on The CW on Wednesday nights at 8/7c.
