The 100: Clarke Will Evoke Sarah Connor in Season 5
Filming hasn’t yet started for the fifth season of The 100, but showrunner Jason Rothenberg did give a few hints to the enthusiastic crowd in Ballroom 20 for the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, moderated by IGN’s own Eric Goldman.
As viewers saw in the Season 4 finale, six years will have passed when the story resumes. Clarke has become a mother to a surviving nightblood named Madi, and though this isn’t Clarke’s biological child, Rothenberg asserted that the mother-child bond is strong. At one point, he likened Clarke’s parenting style to that of Terminator 2’s Sarah Connor, who had to prepare her child for impending combat. Madi has grown up listening to Clarke’s stories of her mother and her friends, so they are her heroes.
