‘The 100’ season 6 needs to answer these 125 questions

The 100 season 6 production has officially begun! We have many questions that we hope will be answered in the upcoming season. Specifically, 125.

Six seasons in, and The 100 is graduating from Earth Skills, seeking higher things on a brand new planet.

Where The 100 season 5 jumped ahead six years, this season ended with a whooping 125-year time jump — but this time, (almost) everyone was asleep for the duration, meaning that season 6 technically picks up the very next day for most of the characters.

After leading them to their new home, a much older Monty and Harper left Bellamy and Clarke with a new friend, their already grown-up son named Jordan, and the words “be the good guys.” Now, we’ll see if what remains of humanity can live up to Monty and Harper’s legacy.

But what exactly awaits them in this new world? What secrets do this two-sunned planet hold? We have a lot of questions.

As has now become Hypable tradition, we present a list of 100+ questions — this time 125, in honor of the new time jump — that should keep us busy speculating until the new season premieres next year!

125 questions ‘The 100’ season 6 needs to answer

The 100 season 6 questions

  1. Will Clarke, Bellamy and Jordan wake everybody up straight away, or only ‘essential personnel’?
  2. Was there a reason (beyond ‘they’re the main characters’) why Monty and Harper wanted Jordan to wake Bellamy and Clarke (as opposed to, say, SpaceKru) before anyone else?
  3. How long was Jordan awake before he woke up Bellamy and Clarke, and does he have any helpful information about the new planet?
  4. Since he grew up on Eligius IV, does he know things about the ship that even Shaw and Diyoza don’t know?
  5. Will Murphy still be Jordan’s favorite or will it be someone else?
  6. (How) will SpaceKru react to Monty and Harper, ~30% of their entire family, being dead?
  7. How will Jordan take after Monty and Harper? Will we recognize any of their mannerisms in him? Will the other characters be reminded of them when they interact with him?
  8. How will he react to being around so many people that aren’t his parents?
  9. Will Jordan and Octavia bond over their very similar isolated upbringings?
  10. Will they talk about Monty and Jasper, arguably Octavia’s best and only real friends? (Does Jordan know about that time Monty killed his own mother to save Octavia?)
  11. Will Monty and Harper have a funeral/memorial service?
  12. (Where is Monty’s body?)

  18. Will it look like Vancouver the City of Light?
  19. Will everything be what it initially seems, or will the planet/its people harbor a dark secret a la Mount Weather?
  20. Are the planet’s inhabitants aware that Eligius IV has entered their orbit? Are they prepared for our heroes’ arrival?
  21. Are the Eligius III descendants — if that is in fact who is on the new planet — the only humanoid species there, or was the planet already inhabited before they arrived?
  22. Just how different will the natural environment look from our own? (I.e. how big exactly is the effects budget for this new world?)
  23. Will there be new forms of animals? Plants? Landmarks?
  24. Since there are two suns, will the days be brighter and/or the nights be shorter?
