All in The 100

Heroes, Villains, and Humans on Season 5 of ‘The 100’

In many ways, Season 5 of The 100 feels like it’s taken a step back.

After the Season 4 finale launched us six years into the future, there was much excitement and speculation about the avenues this opened up for the show moving forward: There were new antagonists, returning from a deep space mining mission; an Earth ravaged by fire and radiation, aside from one small patch of green; and our main characters scattered, orbiting above the planet in what remained of the Ark, surviving above ground in the last remaining valley, or buried underground in a bunker that’s sealed shut by thousands of tons of rubble.
