Okay, does anyone want to tell me what the cards say in the writers room cause I really wanna know
wow i can’t bELIEVE jroth just MADE bellarke canON like that
I’m missing the 100 right now ,I’m hoping we get a decent ending,knowing Jason we won’t
I can see it being a filler series on their new streaming site, since they’ll want content, but who knows. Regular network, no one pays attention to it, advertisers see no ROI, it will disappear (if it gets a series order at all). Streaming? Different set of rules, still boils down to advertisers.
The BSG people tried a prequel/spinoff with Caprica and it didn’t take off (though I thought Caprica was pretty good), and that was the the Syfy Network.
Funny enough, so many of The 100′s aesthetic and sensibility come from those two shows, but the 100 lacks real depth and insight; he’s either learned something from it or he hasn’t and will pass that on to the prequel.
Meanwhile, there are hundreds if not thousands of really talented people out there who never get such an opportunity and so much original work will never be seen.
All so hacks like Rothenberg can continue to shovel derivative pap that doesn’t challenge anything.
They’re going to tack on the pilot to season 7 of the 100, probably like a coda instead of a finale. It gives them an excuse to not go ahead with it if the reaction is poor and they don’t need a nod from the advertisers unless a series is ordered.
Ignominy is disgrace or dishonor.
I have no idea why this would happen or if it is even true; since when has anything this guy ever contributed to in social media turned out to be because oh, yes, that’s happening? He just know hows to string people along and that’s about it.
But I would be very surprised if there wasn’t some kind of narrative tango submitted so they can make the most out of the Happy Couple’s marketing potential with a certain demographic.

UPDATE: THE DOGGO IS OKAY!!!!!!!!!!!
They literally had Octavia confirm to the audience that Bellamy loves Clarke and we’re meant to forget that happened?
JR can try a “platonic” and “misinterpretations” narrative outside of the show all he likes.
The show has been feeding us since late season 4, theres only one direction its going in
The 100 opening scene pretty much.
Sometimes I just want people to come along with gif evidence of very specific Bellarke moments and be like, “so Jason, what exactly is happening in this moment, what is the point of this look or transition?” Like, what is that reaction shot of Clarke after Bellamy and Echo kiss supposed to mean? Why is Bellamy staring with an upset, sad face at Clarke dancing with another guy? I honestly want him to answer for how we could be misinterpreting things like that? What is the defense there?
What does this mean?
so noah fence but I can make my own opinions about the stuff I love.
Maybe other people may have a negative view. Maybe it has a very inactive fandom. Maybe it has a poor rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Maybe it has a strong army of antis. Maybe the show creators took a ~wild~ turn. Maybe it has hateful comments on twitter, youtube, reddit, tumblr, whatever.
Try not to let others warp your opinions into something unrecognisable. You might see or hear negative things about your favourite character, or ship, or episode, or season. Don’t let it put you off. You don’t have to change your mind just to fit into the crowd.
Love it the way you want to love it.
