Seriously. Getting old fast. Shouldn't be about trying to survive on an alien world? Oh well, last season, hopefully the prequel is better.

LOL about what I expected for The 100...Clarke being the leader until she absolutely decimates Russel with haymakers - then does a 180* degree turn hahah - I actually thought it was pretty funny and said to myself, "This is such The 100"

And she goes from "We don't know what to do with him" to "Declaring his punishment is death" in front of the entire human civilization in a matter of show minutes - just excellent stuff

I think there's a reason why this show hooked people via binging - you'd watch 10 episodes in a row (or an entire season) and just forget how dumb and ridiculous some things are and just roll with it. Because every single episode ends on a cliffhanger, you just wanted more and more. I won't lie - that's what hooked me on this show - and that the writing was slightly less repetitive.

I'm pretty glad the show is ending and they were allowed to end it - vs just being canceled ala The Magicians - lets hope they honor that don't go the same direction as Season 2, 4, 6 (which, if I remember - and I don't - all basically have the same ending)

One thing I can say for this show it keeps you thinking' the plot twist and just the over all sci-fi gets sometimes complicated really. They do have some pretty good writers. Its fun to watch.

What are you guys thinking of the current season? I am watching it but I don't watch them immediately. I am looking forward to this ending and moving on to the prequel.

I gave up on it 2 or 3 seasons back. As a fan of the original on Earth storyline, I am anxiously waiting for the upcoming prequel.

Wait - didn't they need the suits to travel between the bridges? And then Skykru just goes to the one planet that looks like and ends up being an ice planet?

That was smart...oh and yeah, we need a Bridge rock! Woops! That was pretty piss poor writing but whatever - like I said, I need to give up watching week-to-week and just binge the remaining episodes to overlook these idiotic plot-points

I liked the 5-year montage they did but I feel like Echo rushing to murder everyone was a nice/dumb/lazy plot device. No way that killing of all of this new crew is going to come back to bite them in the ass...no way

I was getting pretty bored with the Sanctum storyline and Russell/Sheiheda. Now that Clarke and company have left Sanctum, things will hopefully move faster.

I feel the same way. The squabbles and politics in Sanctum bore me to tears. I feel like we've seen this a dozen times already with the Grounders. This past week's episode was much better. Octavia looks much better now without the constant scowl and warrior makeup. I almost forgot how pretty she was from the first couple of seasons.

We know that if you don't use a suit when you leave Pennance, you lose your memory. It doesn't seem like this applies to the other gateways, because people can enter Pennance without a suit just fine. What I want to know is if Sanctum is part of this network of planets, how come these soldier people left them alone for so long?

On the bright side, it seems like they planned ahead, since the anomaly from last year and many other things are getting explained now.

When Echo asked Oliver to come back to Sanctum he said 'no thank you' and made reference to the planet's environmental hazards and the crazy people who worship their leaders like they were gods. Not to mention there might differences in how time passes on Sanctum in relation to Bardo was well, though maybe not as pronounced as on Penance, which make it a less-than-ideal place to conquer and colonize as part of their network.
