The 100 Season 4 will not air on The CW until next year. Currently, creator Jason Rothenberg and the writers are working on the storyline. During the process, they are staying busy on social media, giving fans small clues on what is coming next. So far, it seems that hints of radiation, unity, the first death, and possibly there not being enough room have been teased.
Warning: Spoilers and theories for The 100 Season 4 are ahead.
Writers of The 100 have been using Instagram to share teasers with fans. Most of the time, these are just short phrases or riddles. Other times, viewers may see an image. It should be stated that not everything that is posted is a hint or spoiler. With that being said, nothing definitive can be revealed from the hints, but it is always fun to speculate.
Previously, a scientific formula was photographed, leading many to wonder if Jasper (Devon Bostick) would save the day. As one Instagram user mentioned, Jasper told Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) that on the Ark, he aced chemistry. Beside this, what else is known about The 100 Season 4?
What is known that the theme will definitely be saving the world. Fans wondered if Alie (Erica Cerra) was telling the truth about the nuclear disaster. However, based on the Instagram posts from the writers of The 100, it seems to revolve around that topic.
There also seems to be a coloring book with pathways leading around several half-domes sticking out of the ground. This could have just been some creative coloring, but it also might be a clue. Are there half-domes somewhere? Will they hold the key to saving the world from a nuclear threat? Or does it signify going underground to survive, like the descendants did with Mount Weather?
On the 14th day, The 100 writers posted a topic card with the words “dead pool” written on it. Everyone knows what that means: someone is going to die. Which character will it be, by whom, and why? Is this someone who fans are attached to, and will it add to the storyline or will it just be done for shock value?
Day 15 was very interesting. The 100 Season 4 writers uploaded a picture of a bright sun. It looked normal, but one observant Instagram user noted that it had 13 rays… the same number of Grounder clans. Another thought it could refer to radiation, which would go along with the nuclear disaster storyline. Will the Grounders and Sky Crew unite in the face of the newest crisis, or will it cause an even more fierce battle?
As for the first death – or should we say near-death? – that was posted on the 17th day of writing. It is going to be the first knife to the throat in Season 4 and may not be the last However, a knife to the throat doesn’t necessarily mean that someone is going to die. Unfortunately, that might just be wishful thinking considering the nature of the show.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, “Admit One” was posted to Instagram by the writers of The 100 recently. At that time, it was speculated that humanity might not be meant to stop the nuclear disaster, but simply survive it. If they do go underground or take over Mount Weather, there may not be enough room for everyone. Who gets to decide who lives and who dies?
These are just speculations based on what was posted by the writers of The 100. So take these theories with a grain of salt. It also should be noted that not all TV shows write in the same sequence. Some write in episode order, while others use a different formula for getting the storyline together. These visual and verbal cues may be all mixed up, only to come together once the show begins airing. Also, it typically takes more than one day to write an episode, so these theories might be jumping ahead a little too fast.
