Following the span of 6 years, the series drew to an end. The saga covered several planets, countless characters, and multiple conflicts. Towards the Show’s end, just a few of the major characters were able to make it through the finale.
The final two seasons were no stranger to the series’ regular twists and turns, even making the cast meet the final test to decide whether or not humankind merits “transcendence.”
How it was Great?
Clarke Got A Happy Ending
If you’ve watched the series you’ll know that Clarke has been through a lot. Not to mention losing multiple people she fell in love with including Lexa and Finn and consistently making some of the most hardest choices in the course of the entire series. Clarke carries intense emotional burdens.
Though Clarke can be extremely divisive. The reason is that she played a significant part in driving her people through a great deal of strife and keeping many of them breathing.
If Clarke was left alone to thrive while mankind transcended it would have been an insult to everyone who puts others before themselves.
Emori And Murphy Ended up Together
The duo’s fate sensed melancholy towards the season’s finale as Emori succumbed to her fate after something pierced her chest. Later to preserve her memory, Murphy’s body becomes the host to Emori’s mind drive. Since two brains cannot co-exist in a solitary body without causing brain hemorrhaging, inevitably killing the host.
Fortunately, Raven managed to convince the Judge of mankind’s merit to transcend saving the couple just in time.
They Ended Up Back Home
When the show kicked in, the primary objective was to locate a planet for humanity to avoid extinction. The 100 were initially sent to planet earth to ensure if it’s fit to sustain life after decades of radiation contaminating the environment.
The major conflict in Season 5 was to decide whether or not humanity could cohabit ‘Shallow Valley’, the only fertile land left.
How It Wasn’t?
The Characters Can’t Reproduce
It was so satisfying that towards the show’s end most of the characters ended up having a partner. Though the Judge later discloses that they won’t be able to reproduce because of transcendence.
While it kind of made sense, taking the ending into account but it’s still tragic for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, this drowns any hope of starting their own family, which is really heartbreaking for Jordan and Hope who may have wanted kids at some point.
We Still Don’t Know What Happened to Sheidheda
We’ve all witnessed Sheidheda getting reduced to bits by Indra towards the end of the test, moments before he manages to forfeit the fate of mankind. However, his death has never been explained.
In any case, Sheidheda proves that he is indeed persistent, resurrecting often to gain control over Russell Lightbourne’s body.
Bellamy didn’t make it
Though it is now clear that Bellamy met his tragic fate in the seventh season. Similar to Griffin we can see Ballamy desperately trying to ensure his friend’s survival- especially Octavia and Echo.
Ballamy’s demise didn’t bode well with fans who believed his story wasn’t finished, denying them of another great “The 100 ending”.
