'The 100' Season 4 Spoilers: Lexa To Return?

Alexandria Ingham

The San Diego Comic-Con 2016 panel didn't spoil too much of The 100 Season 4, but it did make fans happy. It became clear that Lexa may return to the show. Executive producer Jason Rothenberg has actually said maybe.

The 100 fans will remember that Lexa and Clarke found love with each other. It was the lesbian relationship the LBGT community has been waiting for. The relationship wasn't special just because they were lesbians, and it didn't matter to the characters around them that they were in love. Being gay, lesbian, or bisexual in the program isn't anything out of the ordinary.

That's great news, right? Well, it might be if it meant Lexa returning this season. Rothenberg has said that it won't happen in The 100 Season 4. It looks like it will be something kept for next season, and the executive producer may not have to live up to that promise. Who says the CW will even renew the show for another year?

Eliza Taylor hopes that it offered Clarke the closure she needed. She wants to see her character love again, although that won't be any time soon. Fashion & Style reports that Clarke just thinks it is the end of love for her at the moment, because that is a normal human reaction. It doesn't mean she will never love again, and that could come in the most surprising ways.

Some fans would like to see her and Bellamy grow to love each other. There is a strong relationship between the two, despite betraying and abandoning each other at certain times throughout the series. Others want to see them just remain friends, to prove male-female platonic relationships are possible.

Actor Henry Ian Cusick has said that the show will focus on guilt and carnage this season. They have all done something that they need to forget and move on from, or need forgiveness from others to be able to move forward. Bellamy and Octavia, for example, have a lot of baggage to work through after the events of Season 3.

The 100 Season 4 will premiere sometime in January, 2017. The CW has saved it to help strengthen the mid-season programming.
