'The 100' Season 7 Episode 2 Preview: Get ready to learn the truth about Hope as we go into the anomaly
Last week's premiere of the final season of 'The 100' was a doozy. There was a lot that happened and we had multiple narratives while we wondered where some of our favorite characters were. Though last week's episode may have left fans confused, this week's episode may be marginally better — and we suggest catching up on old seasons to enjoy it more — especially for longterm fans who have not rewatched old seasons of 'The 100' in a while.
In last week's episode, we saw that some invisible soldiers had dragged Bellamy Blake (Bob Morley) away to the anomaly. Hope Diyoza (Shelby Flannery) had a note in her that told her to trust Bellamy, so she teams up with Gabriel Santiago (Chuku Modu) and Echo (Tasya Teles) to find Bellamy. Though the soldiers tried to keep them away from the anomaly, Echo was able to shoot them down. In their octagonal helmets, we saw certain messages were written from the soldiers' perspective — that Bellamy was captured, that Echo and Gabriel had to be taken in alive, and that Hope had to be killed on sight.
Hope did not remember anything, so we couldn't tell yet why Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos) was important to her or why she stabbed Octavia (why Octavia forgave her for it), and why she called Octavia "Aunty O" when she hallucinated her. This week's episode will start answering a few of those questions, but more importantly, it will answer a few questions from the last season as well. Questions that surround where Octavia went to when she went into the anomaly in the last season, how she had aged so much, and how a grown Hope had come back through.
This week's promo shows that Echo, Gabriel and Hope are "stuck" on another planet possibly after going through the anomaly. We also see Charmain Diyoza (Ivana Miličević) telling someone, "this is your home now". There are, of course, some very interesting visuals in the promo — skull "toys", Octavia and Diyoza fighting, Gabriel saying, "isolation madness", Octavia opening the octagonal helmet to see a decayed face inside, and, of course, the anomaly.
However, while there are many new aspects covered in this episode, viewers must be ready to expect some throwback moments — all the way from Season 1 and Season 3. For those who miss Bellamy, he is still quite present in many scenes, especially those that involve Octavia.
'The 100' airs on Wednesday nights on The CW at 8/7c. Watch the promo for this week's episode below.
