‘The 100’ 7×12: 10 questions we have after “The Stranger”

The 100 7×12, Season 7, Episode 12, “The Stranger” aired on The CW August 19, 2020

FINALLY. This feels like The 100.

This season has felt sooooo very different. It’s clear that this feeling has been because we were missing the heart (and the head) of the show, because the moment they were back together on our screens, it felt like The 100 again. 

We have very much enjoyed the other stories being told in Season 7, but cutting out the lead characters in the final season gave this season a very different vibe. The 100 7×12 feels like a return the show we know.

Here are 10 questions we have after The 100 7×12

How is Sheidheda such an excellent marksman? Wasn’t he a Grounder without guns in his day? That fab new outfit must give him some super aim or something. Also, he has one eye! ONE EYE! This must be some sort of side effect of his makeover because that was all very accurate. Not just a chess pro it seems…

How sad was that slaughter? We didn’t really get to spend that much time with the Children of Gabriel, but that was an awful way to end their story. And how heartbreaking was that moment with Nelson/Sachin? GAH! 

Is Bellamy ready to let his friends die for his new cult? Maybe. A strong maybe (and it’s crazy to even think that). Bellamy has (literally) seen the light and has gone all in on his new cult. He’s got a pretty white robe, a new haircut and shiny new brainwashing to end his run as one of our favorite TV fellas. We hope that he will snap out of it before this show ends (and before this show tarnishes his legacy too terribly).

Are Echo and Bellamy over? Kinda seemed like it! Bellamy was clearly not pleased with Echo after hearing about her murder spree and her planned attempt to kill everyone on Bardo to avenge him. Even if he wasn’t all in on this “for all mankind” thing, we are pretty certain pre-cult Bellamy would not have been cool with her killing people either. Also, we have to point out that he didn’t seem to have the same emotional intensity when he faced Echo (and Raven) as he did when he was confronted by Clarke (and Octavia). 

Is Murphy’s growth the best thing ever? Yes. The answer here is yes. Murphy and Emori have become the core couple of this show and we love it. Also, Emori and Murphy banging it out during all of this was actually kind of hilarious. Stay on mission, ya’ll.

How awesome was the Jordan and Hope scene? Yes, we know both of their origin stories, but it was so interesting to hear them compared in that moment. This is a friendship we didn’t know we needed in our lives, but we are so happy to see it. Jordan never really found his place in the group but it sure seems like “at Hope’s side” is right where we want him to be. 

Where the heck is Gaia? Was that it for her character or will she be back to fix this whole Flame thing? Will the other characters that were just sent away be there too? How many hidden planets are there?!

Did you see the way Gabriel smiled at Raven? Gabriel is finally ready to move on after all this time and he seems to have his sights set on Raven (and her big, gorgeous brain). The argument could also be made that he gave the same look to Bellamy when complimenting his cult robe, but hey. We ship it. We ship it all. 

How will Clarke fix the Sanctum mess? She hasn’t even done anything in Sanctum yet, but we are already tired for this woman. She has been kept on the sidelines all season, but we all know that she will be the one who has to sort this whole mess out. Thankfully, she has Raven and Bellamy with her!

Can they just go to Skyring and start over? They should just do that. Leave Bardo and Sanctum behind, figure out a way to destroy the stone on Skyring, and just make a new life there.  Sanctum is the 2020 of The 100 and they should leave and never look back. 

What did you think of The 100 7×12? What do you think will happen when they have to confront drama in Sanctum?
