The 100 Plot
A nuclear conflict on earth brought the planet to ruins. Civilization almost vanished. Some people succeeded in escaping earth and built a space station, Ark. A century later when the life support system began to malfunction on the space station, the spaceship authority sent 100 juvenile prisoners to earth to determine their habitability. They soon find out that the people who left on earth have adapted to the harsh environment.
The Grounders, a clan engaged in the power struggle, The reapers, who turned into cannibals, and The mountain men, who live in Mount Weather and are descendants of the people who locked themselves away before the apocalypse took place.
Only forty-eight detainees survived the hostile environment till the end of season one. All the remaining ones were captured by the mountain men and brought to Mount Weather. They started taking out their bone marrow as a test showed that their blood can help mountain men in an outside contaminated world. Meanwhile, the Ark crashed on land and the survivors set up a settlement named “Camp Jaha”, allying with the grounders.
The next season follows the renaming of the settlement to Arkadia, Pike, a former teacher and mentor of Ark, being chosen as the new chancellor, and the declaration of war with the grounders. The fourth season brings a new disaster in the form of several nuclear reactor meltdowns due to years of neglected maintenance, which will make a large part of the earth inhabitable again. The grounders with black blood, called nightbloods, can metabolise radiation. They tried to recreate the formula but failed. The survivors decided to put 100 members of all 12 clans in bunkers during the disaster. Others went back to the remaining Ark space station, while Clarke remains on earth’s surface, as he is a nightblood now.
The story of survival and war continues till the end of the series.
