Welp, I’m coming at this season 3 review far later than I meant to, but I don’t think it matters, really. We’ve got at least 6 1/2 months till the show comes back, so there’s plenty of empty space to fill with The 100-related stuff in the meantime. I’ve been busy but there was so much going on with season 3 that I can’t let it go by without writing a proper analysis of it. There’s a LOT to unpack in terms of high and low points … particularly because it felt like the reaction to season 3 got a fuckin’ hell of a lot more attention than season 3 itself.
It’s like, in all the hoopla of fans flipping out all over social media and critical reaction to the Lexa stuff, the show itself got completely lost in the insanity. The show became Jon Snow in the middle of “Battle of the Bastards”, when he started to get completely trampled and buried by all the soldiers around him flailing around. Only it feels like The 100 wasn’t as lucky as Jon Snow – The 100 was never able to properly climb its way out of the surrounding mess.
