'The 100' Season 7 Episode 7: Lindsey Morgan's directorial debut has fans raving 'incredible at all levels'
While Raven herself may be awaiting happiness, we are certain Lindsey Morgan is especially proud and happy with her work this episode
This week's episode of 'The 100' was quite special for longtime fans as Lindsey Morgan, who played Raven Reyes since the first season of The CW show, made her directorial debut with 'The Queen's Gambit'. While we got just one minor scene at the end featuring Raven in this episode, Morgan's masterful directing chops has fans raving and feeling emotional.
While Raven was at first a recurring character, she grew to be much more important and having more central storylines. Morgan beautifully portrayed Raven's joy and pain — we saw Raven go through chronic pain and coming to terms with her gunshot wound-inflicted disability. We saw her grow over the past six seasons to become one of the core characters.
While Raven herself may be awaiting happiness, we are certain Lindsey Morgan is especially proud and happy with her work. Before the episode aired, Morgan's co-stars and showrunner of 'The 100' tweeted in support.
Jason Rothenberg tweeted, "TONIGHT'S EPISODE was directed by @linzzmorgan in her debut behind the camera. Needless to say, she crushed it! I’m beyond proud of her and so excited for you to see the depth of this multi-talented young woman's work. I'd pick her first, too!" Sachin Sahel (who plays Eric Jackson) tweeted, "LoMo, for seven years you’ve been one of the hardest workers I’ve ever seen and your DIRECTORIAL DEBUT tonight is more proof of that.

Eliza Taylor, who plays Clarke Griffin, tweeted, "Go @linzzmorgan go!!! Proud doesn't quite cut it. You've come so far sweet lady, it's been a wonder watching you grow. Congrats on your directorial debut." Fans concurred with Morgan's colleagues. One fan tweeted, "Friendly reminder that no matter how much you despised the writing/storyline of which she had no control over, Lindsey busted her ass and directed a BEAUTIFUL episode. It was shot, and edited wonderfully, and she deserves all the credit for that. #The100 #ProudofLindseyMorgan."
