It's no secret that "The 100" is one of the darkest shows on TV right now, and if you don't believe us, just ask the massacred Mount Weather inhabitants or slaughtered 12-year-olds from Season 2. However, we might be in store for a little bit of levity when Season 4 premieres.
Fans of the show were treated to a solitary moment of happiness earlier this year, when the kids got to relax and sing along to some classic rock in the car before returning to the doom and gloom of their everyday lives, and the scene soon became a hit.
According to showrunner Jason Rothenberg, we might be in for more carefree musical numbers when Season 4 returns, despite the impending nuclear apocalypse.
"Once this thing lands in their lives as a reality -- that they're all going to die in six months -- we will see some people say, 'You know what, enough fighting, I just want to live life to its fullest,' and those people will sing," Rothenberg teases.
Trying to figure out who these "carpe diem" singers will be is probably an exercise in futility, but we're still going to guess anyway.
We can pretty definitively rule out Clarke (Eliza Taylor), since she will already know about the crisis, and she's not exactly the type of person who would give up and accept defeat. She's not going to enjoy her last six months on earth unless she's fighting to keep her people alive.
Bellamy (Bob Morley) and Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) don't strike us as the singing types either, since the former didn't even sing during peace time, and the latter will still be dealing with the fallout of losing Lincoln (Ricky Whittle) and murdering Pike (Michael Beach).
That leaves us with Raven (Lindsey Morgan), who totally seems like she'd be down to live it up during her dying days, along with Monty (Christopher Larkin), Jasper (Devon Bostick) and Murphy (Richard Harmon).
Of all the kids, these last four seem like the perfect candidates to make the most of the time they've got left, so we're crossing our fingers they'll be in a singing mood when Season 4 premieres.
Larkin agrees that Monty and Jasper in particular would be good candidates for some light-hearted moments during the dark days ahead. "At the end of the season you see him and Jasper in a moment of hope for the first time in years," Larkin says, "So it would be really nice for us to have some levity on this show, and I think Jasper and Monty are a really good vessel for that."
"The 100" is schedule to return in the Spring of 2017 to The CW.
