After a week’s break, season two of The 100 returned with episode six, Fog of War. While tensions are high between Clarke and Finn, viewers and the remaining of the Space People find out more about Mount Weather and their plans. It also looks like they are ready for attack.
It all starts two days after episode five. The leaders of the 100 children, Clarke and Bellamy, are discussing a plan to infiltrate Mount Weather. They need to save their people. Bellamy has come a long way between the beginning of season one and now. He is defending Finn’s breakdown saying that they are in war. They have all done questionable actions, and Clarke knows deep down that that is the truth.
Raven has found out why she cannot get a signal on the radios. Mount Weather is jamming them, and the only way to stop that is to get to the broadcasting tower and blow it up. Abby is still adamant her daughter is just a kid, but she has no idea of everything they have been through during last season. They are not kids. They are now soldiers that need to defend their camp and get their people back.
Meanwhile at Mount Weather, there are disagreements in camp between the remaining members of the 100. With Jasper’s blood helping to save Maya, the young girl is now metabolizing radiation on her own. Tsing wants to move on with the other kids, but Dante is not in agreement. Dante says that Jasper volunteering helped, but is that really the truth?
In a twist on Fog of War, episode six of The 100 season two, it seems like Dante actually has a heart. He refuses to lock up the rest of the 47 in cages, and tells Cage that if he harvests the kids or puts out the order he will not deserve to see the outside world again. However, Cage does not really take that warning the way he should do, and tells Tsing he will lock them up if he has to.
Dante wants the kids to volunteer and turns to Jasper for help with that. Jasper soon starts to learn the truth about Mount Weather. At least, he thinks he does until he is talking to Monty about volunteering his blood. Maya comes in with a notebook explaining the full truth on paper because they are listening to their conversations. She gets them to somewhere she can talk, and tells all. She even shows them the caged Grounders, who have been used for blood bags when radiation does happen.
The truth about the fog that attacked The 100 in the beginning is finally explained. It is a weapon for Mouth Weather. Raven only hears about it because she manages to get into the antenna that is blocking their communications, but Abby still wants to blow it up so they can contact other possible surviving Ark members. In the end, Abby decides that listening to the enemy is more important right now.
After wondering all about Lincoln for a few weeks, the viewers finally see what has become of him. It seems he has turned into a Reaper. Bellamy and Octavia see him with other Reapers, feeding off their guards. As they get away, Bellamy becomes the big brother he has always proven himself to be. He promises his sister that they will save Lincoln
Throughout the episode, there are clips to the captured Jaha and Kane. They are told to fight to the death, but both refuse. It seems Kane is willing for Jaha to kill him, but Jaha is a true commander for The 100. He refuses and in a twist of fate turns the knife on Lexa, who has joined them in their prison as a witness to the fight. Jaha escapes and makes it to Camp Jaha, where Abby finds him. While in shock that her commander is alive, he tells them that they have two days to leave or they will die.
With so much happening in season two of The 100, compared to season two, it is difficult to keep track of some of the storylines in episode six, Fog of War. However, one thing is certain: nobody is safe.
