Warning: The 100 Season 3 finale spoilers are ahead!

“In the season’s epic and mind-bending conclusion, our heroes begin to face the reality of their tragic situation. Everyone prepares for a final showdown,” The Futon Critic wrote regarding The 100 Season 3 finale synopsis. “Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Isaiah Washington, Henry Ian Cusick, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Devon Bostick, Christopher Larkin and Richard Harmon also star. Dean White directed the episode written by Jason Rothenberg (#316). Original airdate 5/19/2016.”
The official promo for “Perverse Instantiation – Part Two” reveals that after Abby hanged herself, she was brought back unchipped. This means that Clarke was able to remove Alie’s chip, bringing her mother back to her old self. However, there is still the problem of defeating Alie. All of their previous attempts have failed, so what can the Sky Crew do? In the promo clip for The 100 Season 3 finale, Clarke takes Alie’s chip and goes to the City of Light.
As Clarke walks through the City of Light, Raven and the others are able to track her from the mainframe. Even though Raven seems hopeful, Murphy does not. He bluntly says that, if the plan doesn’t work, then Clarke dies.

The rest of the promo clip shows Clarke convulsing before opening her eyes and gasping for air. Pike warns that their adversaries are coming and Octavia has a shocked and devastated look on her face.
In addition to the promo for “Perverse Instantiation – Part Two,” there are also two sneak peek clips. The first features Clarke and Abby. The mother and daughter must deal with both remembering Abby’s actions, including torturing her own daughter. Even though Clarke knows it was not really her mother doing those things, Abby is emotional. Suddenly, Pike, Bellamy and Murphy burst in the door, ready to shoot Abby. Clarke stops them and assures the three men that Abby is now unchipped.
The second sneak peek for The 100 Season 3 finale focuses on Jasper torturing Harper. Posted by Spoiler TV, the chipped Sky Crew member is demanding Raven and Monty open the door. Harper tells them not to do it and Monty instructs Raven to keep Jasper talking. Next thing you know, Monty sneaks up and shoots Jasper.
There is also a producer’s preview of “Perverse Instantiation – Part Two.” Showrunner Jason Rothenberg did not reveal many spoilers in the video clip. However, he did say that at the end of Season 3, Episode 15, “essentially, our heroes are screwed.” This is where the season finale picks up, but will things finally turn around for the Sky Crew?
As for other spoilers for The 100 Season 3 finale, Lindsey Morgan told TV Guide that viewers will see the return of missing characters. Last week, Roan made an appearance, but that was yet another one of Clarke’s plans that failed. It is unknown if he is still alive or not. Also, Eliza Taylor confirmed that Alycia Debnam-Cary is coming back for the season finale. As fans know, she played Lexa and will see Clarke in the City of Light. Taylor said that Clarke and Lexa meeting again will be in a “pretty unexpected way.” It will be interesting to see if any other characters return for “Perverse Instantiation – Part Two.”
As for Alie, Erica Cerra said that the Season 3 finale will have some deaths. Fans are just not sure how many people will be killed and if any fan-favorite characters will exit the show. Regarding Alie’s thought process, Cerra said it isn’t about controlling people, but doing what Alie was programmed to do. She is supposed to save humanity, so it can go on. If that means one woman and one man are saved, then Alie has done her job. But, what about the other artificial intelligence, Alie 2.0? The actress explained that Alie knows about it and a little bit about what it can do, but on the other hand, Alie doesn’t understand it.
“She wants to make sure she can get ahold of it,” Erica Cerra told IGN about Alie’s thoughts on the second artificial intelligence. “She knows that her creator went off to create this second AI so it must be an upgrade. ‘Is it an upgrade? Is it something to conquer me?’ She just needs to get ahold of it because she feels it belongs to her. She has her fears but she feels like it belongs to her.”
As seen last week on The 100, Ontari is brain-dead, and she was Clarke’s last hope. Fans have been speculating on how Alie will be defeated if Ontari cannot be used. One theory, posted on TV Fanatic, is that Clarke will go into the City of Light to activate Alie’s kill switch from inside. That is a possibility, especially since in a sneak peek clip, Raven was at the mainframe tracking Clarke. Initially, Raven wanted to activate the kill switch from the computers, but Alie is always one step ahead.
“I haven’t seen it myself yet but it’s very interesting and complicated and I think fans are going to be happy,” Eliza Taylor told IGN about what happens after Ontari is declared brain-dead. “Yes. there is trouble coming from every which way but hopefully, Clarke’s got this.”
Other spoilers for the “very dark” Season 3 finale include Jasper in the City of Light enjoying a strawberry ice cream cone and Clarke running from Alie’s army. Also, two endings for “Perverse Instantiation – Part Two” were filmed. Eliza Taylor doesn’t know which one will be aired on Thursday night. However, both will be shocking, leaving fans with their jaws dropped.
The 100 Season 3 finale, titled “Perverse Instantiation – Part Two” airs on May 19.
