'The 100' Season 7 Episode 7 Preview: Echo and Octavia bond over Bellamy as Sanctum is set to erupt
This week's episode sees the continuation of the Sanctum and Bardo storylines. In Sanctum, we had long been guessing that things are fragile
The game is set and the balls are rolling as we enter the seventh week of the seventh and final season of 'The 100' on The CW. So far, a key character -- Bellamy Blake played by Bob Morley -- has gone missing after he was first kidnapped and then disappeared after a blast (now presumed dead). Some of our heroes have been imprisoned by the Disciples on Bardo, including Octavia Blake (Marie Avgeropoulos), Echo (Tasya Teles), Charmaine Diyoza (Ivana Milicevic), and Hope Diyoza (Shelby Flannery). Gabriel Santiago (Chuku Modu) is the main reason they got captured after he knocked them out and surrendered himself. Some of our heroes are planet-hopping in hopes to reach Bellamy and the others, while our remaining heroes try to maintain peace on Sanctum.
To say the final season of 'The 100' is ambitious would be a vast understatement. With so much going on, it might be difficult to keep pace with all of the plotlines. However, we are excited about the amount of worldbuilding and new characters that have come in the final season. This week's episode sees the continuation of the Sanctum and Bardo storylines. In Sanctum, we had long been guessing that things are fragile. While Indra (Adina Porter) took command of WonKru in the last episode, it looks like she may not be as effective as we have hoped -- or perhaps she is absent in the episode.
Emori (Luisa D'Oliveira) tries to heal Sanctum’s old familial wounds by planning a reunification ceremony. However, it looks like the Eligius prisoners led by Nikki (Alaina Huffman) have other plans. It looks like Russheda (JR Bourne) may have a role to play in "something bad" that's going to happen. When Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor) comes back, Sanctum might be at war. Meanwhile, on Bardo, it looks like Hope and her mother Diyoza are prisoners together. This will give the mother and daughter a long-awaited (ten years) reunion as they catch up. Hope did, after all, learn that her mother is a killer and Diyoza would be disappointed that her daughter grew up to be like her.
Promotional pictures show us that Echo and Octavia are going to be rooming together as well. Will they share in their grief over the loss of Bellamy? While Octavia may now be equipped with the tools to move on (she does have a family in the Diyozas), Echo may be going through Octavia's post-Lincoln phase -- and we all know how that ended. Echo now has a carved-up face -- is she getting ready to go back to her Grounder roots and get ready for battle?
'The 100' airs on The CW on Wednesday nights at 8/7c. Watch the promo for this week's episode below.
