'The 100' Season 7 Premiere: Fans confused to see Clarke and crew act normal, say there's a 'huge plot hole'
Spoilers for 'The 100' Season 7 Episode 1 'From The Ashes'
The final season of 'The 100' premiered on May 20 and the best we can say - besides what a badass Clarke Griffin's (Eliza Taylor) is - is that we are thoroughly confused. This episode took us for a wild ride during its post-apocalyptic drama of invisible fighters, a palace on fire and a brand new house. We don't know if we should have binge-watched the previous six seasons but the premiere did leave a lot of fans in confusion as well.
"Watching #The100 Honestly, Ive forgotten everything so I'm confused lol," tweeted a user. "This episode had me so confused. I almost wanna go back and rewatch last season #The100," tweeted another user.
We see Bellamy Blake (Bob Morley) being taken into the anomaly while Echo (Tasya Teles), Hope Diyoza (Shelby Flannery) and Gabriel Santiago (Chuku Modu) are deep in the woods in search for him as they fight the invisible fighters. Madi, Clarke, Raven Reyes (Lindsey Morgan) and the rest of the gang are now in a huge house. "Speaking of tonight's episode of #The100, I thought it was super weird to see Clarke and the crew just hanging out in a regular house. Use to seeing them in the forest, ruins, or in the sky I guess," tweeted a user. The characters living a life of "normal humans" seem a little daunting, like with so much good something has to go wrong. "WTF is happening?!!! I know I missed chunks of last season but I don't remember there being cute houses! #The100," tweeted another user.
Clarke is in the midst of figuring out what to do with Russell Lightbourne (JR Bourne) and while towards the end of the episode, she breaks, the beginning had her reorting to violence. This entire time she isn't seen wondering where Bellamy is or could be, nor does anybody else for that matter, which confused fans even more. "OKAY SO UM????? i was confused throughout the entire episode but do they not care that bellamy is missing? octavia? hope echo and the other dude? #the100," tweeted a fan. Not to mention, in the scene where Clarke was beating up Russell and knocked him out, Sheidheda takes control of Russell's mind and kills him in the subconscious so fans then wondered, "WHERE DID SHEIDHEDA EVEN COME FROM IM SO CONFUSED #The100."
It was an interesting episode to say in the least with so many narratives being set up but some fans are wondering why Season 7 is the last. "I’m really confused why this is the final season. With all of this crazy shit they’re setting up that we know nothing about, how tf is it all gonna be explained in the span of one season!? #The100," tweeted a fan. Some fans even called out to the showrunner for some answers as they tweeted, "Us: we confused as hell Jason: yes that's the whole point #The100." Some took it further and even asked who's the bad of the bunch tweeting, "#The100 I’m so confused as to who the belligerents in this conflict are...Gabriel people, prime people, prisoners, and ark people. Is that what’s happening here?"
So the consensus of the premiere, "I’m so confused there’s a huge plot hole #The100," tweeted a fan very in line with our very sentiments.
'The 100' airs on The CW on Wednesday nights at 8/7c.
