Simply Nicollette's recap posts for The 100 will contain spoilers.
Welcome to our recap!
For The 100's third season I will be writing a recap post for every episode this coming year! I'll be joined by Maddi - who loves The 100 just as much as I do! We're excited for this season, and to kick off our recap posts we'll be discussing the season 3 trailer.
Season 3 Synopsis:
"For two seasons, the refugees of The 100 sent to Earth have been at war. First with themselves, then with the Grounders, and finally with Mount Weather. Many have lost their lives along the way. All have lost their innocence. They have learned the hard way that in the fight for survival, there are no heroes and no villains. There is only the living and the dead. But now the war is over. The battle against Mount Weather has been won. The prisoners have returned home to a world seemingly at peace, but can they find peace within themselves after what they had to do to escape? And is there more to life than just surviving? Unfortunately, their newfound sense of normalcy will be short-lived, and their lives will be changed forever, as threats both old and new test their loyalties, push them past their limits, and make them question what it truly means to be human. First, they fought to survive. Then, they fought for their friends. Now, they will fight for the human race."

Maddi - The 100, a show where anything can happen, where no one is safe. We have been waiting a long time for the new season which airs January 21, but now we finally have the trailer, with almost 3-minutes of new footage! Everyone is clearly still affected by the events at Mount Weather, as you would be.
Kristy - There is so much happening this season, and I can't wait for all of it! At the beginning of the trailer you can see that there is a time jump from last season, like Jason Rothenberg talked about at SDCC this year. It's clear that everyone, not just Clarke and Bellamy, are dealing with the fallout from everything that happened at Mount Weather.
Maddi - It seems everyone is out for Clarke's blood, but not everyone as Bellamy, Abby and the rest of the sky people, and possibly her friends among the Grounders help her to survive. Which may lead to the part where we see Clarke looking all badass dressed like a Grounder.
We see a new leader (played by Michael Beach) rise and challenge the leadership of camp Jaha and the sky people. He goes on the attack for the Grounders, which puts Bellamy and Octavia right in the middle of it, and at either ends of the battle.
Kristy - Kane told Bellamy, "there is a threat inside our walls", and we are introduced to Michael Beach's new character, and I can already tell he's going to cause a lot of trouble! Everyone has evolved into such strong people, it's crazy to see how much has changed since we first met them. Clarke, especially, we can see how much she has changed and I'm excited to see her taking the route where she now knows that you can't always be the good guy.
Kristy - Let's talk about everyone else for a minute. We see glimpses of everyone - Raven, Lincoln, Monty, and Jasper. My heart is literally breaking for all the tears I see on Raven, Jasper, and Monty - I just know how much pain they must be in after everything that has happened since they first got to the ground.
I really hope that Monty and Jasper can repair their friendship, because we can see that neither of them are in a good place and I think they are such a strong team together. Raven says, "would if I'm just broken", she is such a strong female and I hope she continues to fight and never give up because she sure has been dealt with a lot of pain in the past 2 seasons.
Maddi - My heart breaks to see the suffering Jasper is going through after Mount Weather, and losing Maya. Fear jolted through me when I saw Monty with the gun, whatever is happening, whatever he is going through cannot be good!!
Abby and Kane's relationship takes the next step. I have been admiring their relationship since the beginning as it has grown, after everything they have been through, it's great that they have each other.
Maddi - Emori's back! I was hoping it wasn't the last time that we saw her. She's such a strong and interesting character and I hope we get to learn more about her. I also can't wait to see more of her relationship between Murphy, to see what it may become and where it may lead.
I have a very bad feeling about Thelonious with new character A.L.I.E, an intelligent hologram that seems to have been involved in the nuclear war that destroyed the world. (That doesn't sound promising.)
Kristy - Jaha is back, and I'm happy to see it because he is so interesting to me. We hear him telling someone, "the city of light is real", and I can't want to see how his storyline plays out with A.L.I.E.
Kristy - Bellamy and Clarke are reunited! I'm a huge Bellarke shipper - I just love Bob Morley and Eliza Taylor together as actors. It doesn't take a lot to make Bellarke shippers happy, because I was more than happy to see we get another hug between them this season! I really hope they come together and fight because they are such strong leaders together.
Maddi - The hug!! I have to point out the hug between Bellamy and Clarke. It was one of the most talked about scenes from the trailer between many fans. Yes, I admit I'm a Bellarke shipper.
Kristy - Clarke and Lexa are also going to be reuniting! It looks like Clarke wants to kill Lexa at first, but then there's a clip of them riding side by side so maybe they are going to team up again. Either way, I'm excited for what's to come in their relationship!
Maddi - I can't wait to see Clarke and Lexa reunited after Lexa's betrayal, there's no saying what Clarke will do when they meet again, because if it wasn't for Lexa what happened at Mount Weather may have been different.
Maddi - The fight against the Grounders and the Sky People takes sides, as both Clarke and Octavia think Bellamy is on the wrong side, fighting for his own people, as Octavia and Clarke both have connections to the Grounders.
Kristy - It looks as if everyone is on different sides, and I can't want to see how it plays out. Bellamy says, "we've been at war since we landed", I can tell that his character is going to go through a lot this season and I can't wait to see it because I love Bellamy, and all of the development he's made since season 1. It breaks my heart to see the Blakes fighting though! Octavia continues to become more badass as each season goes along, and I love it. We see her tell Bellamy, "you're dead to me", and I'm nervous yet excited to see how their relationship takes a turn this season.
Maddi - More dark creatures are out there and they're coming. It looked terrible and even more creepier than the Reapers. Whatever it is, it's monstrous and it brings bad and unfortunate things along with it.
Maddi - After everything that Clarke has been through, it's going to take a lot to get her through what she did. She led her people, they lived or died from her decisions. The fate of many was in her hands. That is a lot to bear, too much for one person. She will need her family and friends to help her through this. "I bear it so they don't have to."
Kristy - There's going to be so many deaths, new characters, and fighting this season on The 100 - I can't wait! I'm so excited for this rollercoaster ride ahead of us. . . May we meet again!
Maddi - Darkness, drama, pain, war, death, is all coming in the new season of The 100 and I can't wait. . . That's if we survive it!
