The 100 season 5 episode 10 is coming your way on July 17, and from the very start it appears as though there is quite a bit to be excited about here. For starters, it begins with the incredibly-talented Henry Ian Cusick in the director’s chair! This is the second time in which he has taken on this role (he previously did so back in 2017), but to us there is always something that is rather exciting about getting to see a well-known cast member inhabit this role. It’s an opportunity to see them flex some creative muscles and show off a little more of their skill, and it’s also a skill that they can take with them long after work is done on the series … though with Cusick, we do certainly think that there is always going to be some acting work if he wants it.
The title for this episode is “The Warriors Will,” and after reading the synopsis below, one of the things that you may be wondering is whether or not Abby is going to die before the end of the season:
HENRY IAN CUSICK DIRECTS THE EPISODE – Monty (Chris Larkin) strives to show Wonkru an alternative to war, and to the valley itself. Meanwhile, Abby’s (Paige Turco) health continues to deteriorate, along with McCreary’s (guest star William Miller) patience. Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley, Paige Turco, Henry Ian Cusick, Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Richard Harmon and Tasya Teles also star. Henry Ian Cusick directed the episode written by Julie Benson & Shawna Benson (#510). Original airdate 7/17/2018.
If the series were to lose Paige Turco, it’s hard to classify it as anything other than an unbearable loss. After all, just remember here that she has been an integral part of the series from the beginning and the last thing that any The 100 fan should want is even more turnover, especially after losing Isaiah Washington at the start of this season. Yet, death is a part of the series that we feel like many people out there have come to expect. It’s just something that pervades its way through every year that this show is around.
