'The 100' star Luisa D'Oliveira hopes odds are in favor of an Emori and John happily ever after
Emori’s growth on 'The 100' has been phenomenal, having gone from being untrusting when we met her, to a team player in season 5
‘The 100’ season 6 has thrown us into quite a bit of uncertainty, thanks to a whole new world that our protagonists need to navigate. Thankfully – or so, we initially thought – there are the colonizers who came before them, who have created a survivable land, traditions and a great way of living. However, their secrets were exposed in the previously aired season 6 episode 5, putting our protagonists in a whole new level of danger.
In the midst of this turmoil, John (Richard Harmon) has been posed with a new deal – immortality. However, this would mean getting in bed with the enemies, the very people trying to farm his friends… Maybe "friend" is a stretch for Clarke (Eliza Taylor). Regardless, the people he does love would be disappointed and disheartened if he were to take the deal, especially Emori (Luisa D’Oliveira).
Then again, if anyone truly understands his survivalist instincts, it is Emori, and sooner or later she will find a way to forgive and accept him, even if he were to make the wrong choice – which, for the record, we are strongly rooting against. Sanctum may finally be the place where Emori and John find their happily ever after – as much happily ever after as you can hope for in ‘The 100.’
“I'd love them to have that, but in the world of ‘The 100’ you never really know,” D’Oliveira told MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) adding everything depends on what the future brings. However, she does have hope for them; Emori, John, may the odds be ever in your favor!
That said, Emori’s growth outside of the couple, just as an individual, has been phenomenal, having grown from being untrusting when we met her, to a team player in season 5. In fact, the growth graph is so stark, D’Oliveira would love to see her becoming a mentor for another lone wolf character who no one knows how to deal with.
“I think she'd be uniquely positioned to understand them and either reach them and enlist their help or figure out how to thwart them. I think it would show her how much she's grown. She might be able to see that even though her life experience was incredibly difficult and painful, it can be a source of good for her now,” she says. We will definitely have to wait and see if this might come true for Emori.
Season 6 episode 6 of 'The 100' titled 'Memento Mori' airs Tuesday, May 14, at 9 pm/8c on The CW, after which it will be added to The CW app.
