Episode Synopsis: The 100 Season 2 Episode 7 “Long Into An Abyss” – Abby (Paige Turco) is determined to find a way to protect her people from a coming attack by the Grounders, even if it means heading into unknown territory and leaving some captives behind. A worried Bellamy (Bob Morley) convinces Clarke (Eliza Taylor) to go with him to the drop ship, where he and Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) reveal a dangerous secret. Clarke comes up with a bold new plan to stop the Grounders’ attack, leading Abby to a desperate decision. Meanwhile, at Mount Weather, Jasper (Devon Bostick) and Monty (Christopher Larkin) begin to question the motives of their new friends, while Dr. Tsing (guest star Rekha Sharma) conducts a deadly experiment to determine how to make use of the captives.

Show Summary: It’s been 97 years since nuclear Armageddon decimated the Earth, destroying civilization. The only survivors were the 400 inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were lucky enough to be in orbit at the time. Since then, three generations have been born in space and the population has swelled to the thousands on the “Ark” ─ the 12 stations now linked together and repurposed to keep the survivors alive. Life on the Ark is hard. Population is tightly controlled, resources are severely rationed and all crimes, no matter how petty, are punishable by death—unless you’re under 18. Perhaps, they weren’t so lucky after all.

As our story begins, life in space has just gotten even harder. Unbeknownst to the general population, the Ark is dying. In a desperate attempt to prevent the extinction of humanity, a group of 100 juvenile prisoners are secretly exiled to the ground to test whether the atmosphere can once again support life. The youth have quite literally inherited the Earth.

Among the 100 young exiles are Clarke (newcomer Eliza Taylor), the bright teenage daughter of the Ark’s chief medical officer; the daredevil Finn (Thomas McDonell, “Suburgatory”); the brother/sister duo of Bellamy (newcomer Bob Morley) and Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos, “50/50”), whose illegal sibling status has always led them to flaunt the rules; the lighthearted Jasper (Devon Bostick, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules”); and the resourceful Monty (Christopher Larkin, “Squad 85”).

Technologically blind to what’s happening on the planet below them, the Ark’s leaders — Clarke’s widowed mother, Abby (Paige Turco, “Person of Interest,” “Damages”); Chancellor Jaha (Isaiah Washington, “Blue Caprice,” “Grey’s Anatomy”); and his shadowy second-in-command, Kane (Henry Ian Cusick, “Scandal,” “Lost”) — are faced with difficult decisions about life, death and the continued existence of the human race.

For the 100 young people on Earth, however, the alien planet they’ve never known is a mysterious realm that can be magical one moment and lethal the next. With the survival of humanity entirely in their hands, THE 100 must find a way to transcend their differences, unite and forge a new path on a wildly changed Earth that’s primitive, intense and teeming with the unknown.
