The showrunner, Jason Rothenberg, is a big fan of BSG. This might be an explanation, in parts. "How would you describe the genesis of the concept for The 100? The show is based on a book. Last year, I was looking for a pilot to write and I had a meeting with the publisher. They told me about this idea and it instantly blew my mind. I think I can ...

She didn't ! The child is her adopted daughter. Shamelessly copied from MY OWN answer at SF&F There's no specific indication that Maddie is Clarke's daugher (barring advanced aging) since she is clearly more than 6 years old (less pregnancy time). Jason Rothenburg, producer of The 100... We wanted a reveal that Clarke survived and that her ...

Possibly a combination of not showing herself much, fiddling when she did, and people not conceiving she could have another child. On "The 100 writers room" Tumblr (which is official), people asked about birth control on the Ark, and the reply is that every woman has a contraceptive implant, which Aurora got removed "somehow". The writers themselves seem to ...

From the official writer's Tumblr account, when asked about a holiday celebrated half way through Season 1: Asked: What date does Unity Day fall on? I'd like to know so I can party Answer: Chronology questions have been asked a lot (usually in conjunction with ‘has Clarke had her birthday’). I finally was able to get the closest thing to an official ...

Season 1 spoilers. We learn throughout season 1 flashbacks that Bellamy (as an Ark guard) tried to protect his sister from an impromptu ID scan, which failed, and got him demoted to a janitor position (episode 6, "His sister's keeper"). Later, his former superior, Commander Shumway, offers to put him on the dropship to Earth, provided he shoots Chancellor ...

According to the100.wikia.com, they installed oxygen scrubbers in S04E13. The relevant part from that wiki (emphasis is mine): "Then, Murphy, Emori, Harper, Monty, Raven, Bellamy, and Echo get onto the Ark, but Raven is low on oxygen. Murphy and Emori decide to share theirs along with everyone else. Meanwhile, Monty instructs Bellamy to connect the oxygen ...

An IMDb commmon cast/crew search isn't really yielding a lot of the same people at the supervising to executive producer levels, so my guess would be that it's simply the fact that both shows were shot in Vancouver and are drawing on the same acting, production, and SFX pools. And that you're liable to see similar crossover of cast/crew from BSG with other ...

Season 1 spanned 29 days, per the wiki. The pilot episode took place on 13 September 2149 and the season finale on 11 October.

They come from the Nightblood serum created by Becca. She injected herself and became the first Nightblood and all concurrent Nightbloods are created by being injected with the same serum. To quote the Wiki post: The serum created by Becca, which causes a person to become a Nightblood, is also referred to as Nightblood. Also, Grounders don't fight to ...

Heda is TRIGEDASLENG for leader or commander. It is the Grounder code/slang language that was developed after the war, mainly to hide from the mountain men. Heda comes from English 'head' and the suffix 'er' (often changed in slang to 'a'). Similar to modern English slang where someone heads up a team.

TLDR: We see the events from the 100 point of view, so we don't know about the 12 clans (more grounders) until later and it's safe to assume that there're more grounders/survivors in other places Like others said there're 12 clans. The grounders that the 100 encountered in season one were some of the residents at what's called Tondc-Mount Weather, and since ...

Correct, there were many clans. There were 12 Grounder clans that got called together to fight against the mountain people. That's why there were so many grounders. Here's a list of the clans. Lexa was the commander of the 12 clans: Occupation: Commander of the 12 Clans But she was mainly the leader of the Woods Clan.

The Woods Clan are so selective that If a child is born with a mutation, they are cast out and abandoned to erase the stain from the bloodline -The 100 Wikia: "The Woods Clan" This is the reason they have no single deformed member. As for "All grounders are very strongly built", that's because: Most children begin to learn from a young age how to ...

There is some speculation, but producer Javi Grillo-Marxuach said there is no connection between ALIE's (Lady in Red) VR City of Light, and the Matrix Blue/Red Pill. Then we get things like: It's hard to imagine that the entire Season 3 plot isn't somewhat inspired by the Matrix, but the Matrix isn't the first to do that ...

This is all speculation, but I believe that the grounders had an immediate tolerance to the radiation after all the bombs detonated. I think that was the writers way of creating new different cultures on the ground. For example: mountain men have zero tolerance and will die if exposed desert people developed a tolerance, but not before being deformed from ...

This is fairly simple, OP even stated the anwser in his question. When Murphy see her, she is an hologram inside the mansion, meaning she uses an holographic device to communicate with her new guests. Once they take the pill, the holographic program is able to make you see her while others who didn't take the pill won't be able to. If I'm correct, this is ...

Actually there are several "grounders" tribes/clans. So the few grounders fighting the camp in Season 1 might aswell be completely extinct after they were fried, and still the whole population would have been only reduced by a twelvth (is this even a word?). In season 2 towards the end (can't remember the exact episode) the leaders of each clan are ...

So this actually becomes an issue in season 4. If you haven't watched season 4 yet, don't read this! So to answer your question, the ring is actually very stable, even when it was blown up, the "base" of the ring did not "tip over". The ring collapsed, obviously, because of the explosion, but the bottom of the visible portion of the ring was secured and ...

The chip that they take is actually embedding into the base of their brain and it is both removing pain and negative emotion by turning off those receptors, but it is also giving ALIE control of those who've taken it because she's practically code running their brain. At the end of the day, ALIE is a computer program and essentially runs people via code ...

She is. The showrunner, writers and actors confirmed it on several occasions, last time at this year's San Diego Comic-Con I think.
