‘The 100’ 7×04: “Hesperides” recap

The 100 7×04, Season 7, Episode 4, aired on The CW June 10, 2020

Wormholes, anomalies?! This episode really kicks up the sci-fi of the show and we are digging it! We also got to see more of Hope’s backstory and we have never loved her more! Here’s what went down on The 100 7×04!

Hope’s tragic backstory. Poor Hope. This girl’s story is so compelling and interesting and now that we have seen her history, it’s clear why she fits right in with the characters on this show. She is left in isolation after her only family is taken away and she still manages to keep the garden going and even make friends with the prisoner who is brought to Skyring, Dev. She trains and learns to fight so she can escape on his absolution day, but she hesitates and he is killed. It’s tragic and heartbreaking we it just makes us love Hope even more. Also, bonus: happy flashbacks of Auntie O are the best!

Raven’s aftermath. For so many seasons we have seen Clarke carry the weight of every mistake made in this show, and now that we are seeing Raven share the load, it’s a little refreshing. To be clear, we don’t want to see her suffer, but Raven has been particularly hard on Clarke in recent seasons, so it’s nice that we are seeing her understand what Clarke has really been dealing with. 

Disciples are here. So they say they need Clarke to win the human race’s last great battle and we have no doubt that she is capable. But why did they take Bellamy? And who the heck is The Shepard? We have so many questions about the Disciples and Bordo. Also, where the f*ck is Bellamy?! Also, if time moves so differently, will Bellamy be old?!

Raven and Jordan. Now that Clarke and crew have encountered the Disciples, they need more info on them. Thankfully, Raven and Jordan have a Disciples suit to investigate. With the helmet on, Raven sees how the anomalies are connected and that they know A LOT about Clarke. 

Happy family. Echo, Gabriel and Hope are playing the part of the happy clan in order to lure the prisoner in so they can hitch a ride on his absolution day. Eventually they bring Orlando into the fold in order to get more info out of them and he agrees to train them! And we flash forward to see everyone has gotten Quarantine haircuts! Echo’s betrayal of Orlando is shocking, but not shocking. We have seen these characters put survival over their emotions plenty of times, but it was still super sad.

Bye planet! Raven and Jordan are the ultimate geek team and Raven and her suit power up the anomaly and the team is off to save the day! They head to a very icy planet which doesn’t seem to have much life, but they need to find an anomaly stone in order to leave. Ugh. And back on Sanctum, Gaia is staying to warn everyone, but a ghost mode Disciple attacks her and they zap somewhere too! AHHH! 

Where do you think Gaia went? Will Clarke and her peeps ever get off that planet? Hit the comments and let us know! Head to our The 100 page for more news, articles and recaps
