The 100 season 6 episode 7 preview: The past returns in ‘Nevermind’

The 100The 100 season 6 episode 7 is arriving on The CW next week — meaning, we don’t have to suffer through another hiatus this time. That could’ve been something that really shook our basket given that “Nevermind” (at least on the surface) looks to be one of the most important episodes in some time. It’s certainly the most mysterious. Also, is that title some sort of Dennis Lloyd homage? Not ruling it out entirely.

Anyhow, exhibit A for the mysterious nature of this episode comes via the synopsis that CarterMatt has for you below:

THE PAST – Clarke’s (Eliza Taylor) past catches up to her. Bob Morley, Paige Turco, Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Richard Harmon, Tasya Teles and Shannon Kook star. The episode was directed by Michael Blundell and written by Kim Shumway (#607). Original airdate 6/18/2019.

When you take out all of the cast members, The CW is only giving you six words to cling to: “Clark’s past catches up to her.” This could be intentionally short, almost as a function of The CW trying to put a protective bubble over the show and the Josephine storyline. They didn’t want anyone to see what was going on there prior to it happening — hence, they never even directly referred to Eliza Taylor playing anyone else. Sure, we know Josephine was referenced in an episode’s title, but there wasn’t actually that much said about her.

So within this episode, are you getting Clarke’s past … or Josephine’s past? It obviously matters creatively, but for the sake of all the Eliza fans out there, it’s probably going to be an Eliza Taylor showcase either way. This is the sort of midseason episode that you can use as a momentum-builder if secrecy does manage to turn out to equal greatness. For midseason episodes, it can be hard to get that same level of chatter as a premiere or a finale (or in the case of Game of Thrones episode 9 which was always their biggest ones). Typically midseason episodes fall by the wayside or are forgotten come finale season. If this can offer something that is deeply personal and different, it raises its own chances that it will resonate with fans down the line.

Schedule-wise, consider “Nevermind” to be the meat in a The 100 sandwich. There was a new episode tonight (obviously) and a new one on June 25, but after that, the series will take a one week break for the Fourth of July. The CW is stretching out the remainder of this season until August — a wise move to ensure that they’re offering something in the way of scripted programming for most of the year.
