Everyone Wants to Be a Hero in THE 100 Season 4 Trailer

When The 100 told us at the end of season three that a second nuclear meltdown was inevitably going to make 96% of the world uninhabitable, we knew tensions would be high in season four. But to what degree the show with no chill would take it, we were unaware—until now. In the new trailer for the forthcoming season four of the post-apocalyptic series, we’ve got a good, long look at all the hero complexes developing amongst the heroes and villains of the CW show. And guess what: it all looks really, really, really bad.

Like “holy crap the world is literally like 12 minutes away from social and ecological collapse” bad.

With the Grounders, Skikru, Ice Nation, and more on the brink of seemingly unavoidable death, there’s nary a sign of a “Kumbaya” moment to be found. Everyone is out for their own survival. But without figuring out where that magical 4% of land unaffected by the radiation is, can any of them truly survive a nuclear winter at all? And just like the cornered rats in a cage that they are, they’re reactionary, unruly, and deeply unpredictable in their actions to try and survive. I mean, just look at Octavia! Homegirl looks like she’s become a straight-up Skikru killer, leading a group and making Indra proud with her murder-y ways. (I mean, we get it: but still.) And Roan looks deeply keen on taking the reigns and leading not just Ice Nation, but ALL of the people who’ve so far survived on Earth.

Of course, going up against one another is going to be nothing—nothing!—compared to the inevitable nuclear meltdown. Did you see that shot of the Grounder at the Egyptian pyramids being burnt to dust? To say nothing of that image of Clarke covered in radiation boils! DAMN, The 100. DAMN. Knowing this show, it may all be a deeply complicated ruse, but it could also easily not be.
