The CW has released the first three minutes of “The 100” Season 2 premiere, titled “The 48.” Watch Clarke’s bloody, daring escape from her cell in the mountain people’s facility, as she uses a shard of glass to take a worker hostage and demands to see Monty, who is no longer in his cell.

The most interesting aspect of the first few minutes is that when Clarke rips the worker’s suit, the worker freaks about being “contaminated.” Just what do the mountain people think Clarke has? And is it because she was on the ground on Earth or because she was in the Ark in space?

Alas, there is no mention made of Chancellor Jaha, Finn or Bellamy — but we didn’t really expect the show to give away their fates before the premiere, right?

“The 100” returns on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
