‘The 100’ 7×08: 5 best moments from “Anaconda”

We NEED this spin-off!

The 100 7×08, Season 7, Episode 8, “Anaconda” aired on The CW July 8, 2020

This episode of The 100 gave us a deep dive into the mythology on which this show has stood for the past seven seasons and it did not disappoint. This episode also tied the previous seasons to the current one in one effortless swoop and gave us a few more answers about why they need Clarke so badly in Bardo.  The 100 7×08, “Anaconda” left us wanting more – in a good way.

5 Best Moments from The 100 7×08

Origins of Trikru. Way back in Season 1, Clarke and the other drop shippers realized they were not alone on Earth when they met Trikru. The Grounder culture felt so primitive, yet was centered on a very hefty piece of tech – the Flame. The Commander/Flame lore always made the structure of the Grounder clans that much more intriguing. It was often touched on, but this episode really showed how Trikru began, how the Flame became a central part of their group and where their language came from.

Becca. If you ever felt that this show has strayed from it’s roots, this is the episode that shows how everything has always been connected. Like Raven and Callie, we love Becca. Her contributions to humanity destroyed it and saved it, so getting to see how she fit into all of this was key in giving this spin-off that extra kick of The 100 mythology (and made us want more). Every single season of this show has been touched by Becca’s influence in some way and the spin-off backdoor pilot is no different.

Callie. We love her already. She was a part of Trikru when it was just a group of protesters (this felt SO relevant to our current society), and then after the world ended she kept that same drive and moral compass and used it to save people. She doesn’t have the hardened walls of Clarke and her people, and that’s what makes her so interesting. She also has a very complicated relationship with her father and brother that we definitely want to see more of. She resents her father for his rise to power and how he is worshiped, so it will be very interesting to see how Callie feels when she becomes the next Commander (a step we assume she will take).

Clarke is the key. We are certain others figured out that the Flame was the reason Bardo wanted Clarke, but now we know exactly why! Becca’s memory of that code is in Clarke’s head (and so is his daughter). We aren’t sure how it will come into play here, but we are super intrigued!
