From the get go, The 100 has been all about survival. Whether it’s warring over a piece of land, or fighting mind-controlling tech, your favorite characters are locked in a continuous battle of life and death. But after seeing the jaw-dropping Season 5 finale, fans know that the upcoming story can go a number of ways, so they’ve been piecing together some amazing theories for Season 6 of The 100.
The fifth season had Clarke, Bellamy, and the rest of their crew focused on winning the only habitable valley left on Earth. But after the villainous McReary realizes he can’t win against Clarke and Madi’s forces, he does the worst possible thing you could think of — he launches missiles that destroy the valley. Everyone is forced to board ship and leave Earth, but not before Clarke aka Wanheda kills McReary in a brutal fight.
Clarke, Bellamy, Octavia, and the others decide to go into cryosleep until the Earth becomes habitable, but Monty and Harper have other plans. They both stay awake while Monty charts the ship’s course for a new habitable planet. In the meantime, they have a son, and Harper dies of an illness. The Season 5 finale ended with Clarke and Bellamy waking up 125 years in the future, with Monty and Harper’s 28-year-old son telling them that his father managed to find a new planet they could live on before he died.
So what happens next? With a new planet to discover, there are plenty of ways the story can go, but these Season 6 fan theories are definitely worth considering.
