The 100 - Wanheda: Part Two - Advance Preview and Dialogue Teases




The first part of The 100’s season premiere had the task of rebuilding the whole show after the events of the finale and as such many people (including myself) felt its pace was significantly slower as the episode was mostly setup work. Luckily, this week’s part 2 comes to improve the flaws seen on the season premiere while maintaining its focus on the characters, but also allowing the plot moving forward.

So what can I tease about this week’s vastly superior episode? First of all, lots of tension right out of the gate. We’ll learn more about Monty during this week, seeing his character grabbing lots of screen time for some emotional moments.

We’ll also learn more about the whole City of Lights setup. Tension between Jaha and Murphy will continue to build up as they drift farther apart. We also learn why Emori was on that boat, what she is doing and how she interacts with Murphy through the episode: I must say, seeing Murphy and Emori’s together is one of the episode’s highlights as it's filled with lots of energy and the characters draw some of the most interesting traits of each other.

But hey, I said “one of the highlights”. Clarke also gets her due and her captor won’t have an easy time with her. We know that Clarke is a tough cookie and she wasn’t just going to let herself be captured that easily. I won’t say if she escapes or stays captive, but she is certainly giving a fight, and what you’ll see may surprise you, especially near the end where one of the biggest shockers of the episode is delivered.

So where is Bellamy and company standing? I already mentioned Monty gets his due, but that doesn’t mean Bellamy, Kane and Indra don’t get their moment to shine through the episode. The promo for this week’s episode already showed an army moving and these characters will have to figure out how to deal with that while continue to look for Clarke, which will result in very different choices for each one of these characters, with Bellamy taking the riskiest one.

Back on Arkadia, Abby is faced with the choice of using Mount Weather as a medical facility or not. It’s not as simple as it seems, there are polarized opinions towards that option and we see how particularly hard it is for Jasper. His character development is one of the hardest things to watch this season since he seems mostly annoying to any given person, but there is commitment to show how screwed up he has become post Mount Weather and this episode makes him a bit more sympathetic. You have to give it to The 100 for its commitment to develop a character through pain.

This second episode seems fully formed and for storytelling sake it seems it would have been better to have both episodes back to back. Judgement towards part 1 seems to be harder by watching part 2, these were definitely meant to be seen one after another, showing both the setup and the payoff.

The show still needs to build towards the Ice Nation as the villains of the season: it hasn’t reached the compelling levels of the people of Mount Weather, but the episode seems to indicate that’s to come, while raising tension in midst of the sky crew. There’s a lot going for The 100 right now, but it also has a way to go before season 3 reaches the highs of season 2. However, the show is taking steps toward the right direction.

The world of season 3 becomes clearer and what’s coming ahead is nothing but improvement. Episodes 3 and 4 will gather even more momentum, but it all starts here on Wanheda Part 2. I’m particularly excited for all of you to see how it unfolds and your reactions towards that last minute shocker.

Some other teases:
-We’ll see what happened with the girl Clarke hooked up with. Warning: it’s not pretty.

-Jaha goes even more cuoco bananas while A.L.I.E shows a little bit more of what goes on with the City of Light. We also get a brief callback to Wells.

-I didn’t talk much about Octavia or Lincon mostly because I wanted to avoid spoiling some stuff that are the catalyst for a certain storyline here. The episode also doesn’t focus too much on them this week, though Octavia will have a nice moment with a certain character.

-MVP of the week: Murphy for sure. He has been growing on me since the end of season 2 and he keeps having amazing moments.

-Character we don’t see much this week: Raven, sadly.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
