In the trailer for The 100’s final season, Indra (Adina Porter) makes an astute observation: “New world, same problems.” That’s about the truth. No matter where Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and friends go — space, Earth, even other planets! — war and death inevitably follow.
Regardless of the similar central conflict, circumstances for the group have changed drastically this time around; and if you don’t quite remember the details of Season 7, that could get pretty confusing. Here are TK things you’ll need to keep in mind that you might’ve forgotten since last year’s finale.
Whether you're looking for drama, comedy, sci-fi, mystery, or a reimagining, there's something for everyone.

The Group Is Still in Sanctum
Unlike last year’s premiere, which saw the group exploring a new world, Season 7 appears to be at least starting with the group in one place. As far as they know, they’re all that remains of the human race, so maybe they’re trying to make things work?
Madi’s Not Heda Anymore
In the final moments of last year’s finale, Clarke and Gaia (Tati Gabrielle) removed the Flame from Madi’s head after it was corrupted by Sheidheda. That got rid of the nasty former Commander who was controlling her, but Madi can no hear the voices of the other leaders who guided her.

Something’s Weird With Jordan
It’s not totally clear what’s wrong, but in the final moments of Season 6, it was clear that Jordan Green (Shannon Kook) might’ve been on the Sanctum side rather than siding with his friends — he still has Priya’s mind drive, and he underwent some kind of ritual when Sanctum was burning down. He was shown to have a kind heart, and it’s possible that given all the death and destruction that follows his companions, he might’ve opted to switch allegiances.

Murphy and Emori Still Have Mind Drives in Their Heads
Anybody wanna live forever? Murphy (Richard Harmon) and Emori (Luisa D’Oliveira) certainly did, and they underwent the operation to turn themselves into Primes. The Primes are dead — those drives had been wiped, so Murphy and Emori are still themselves — but some folks in Sanctum believe the duo are gods.
Most of the Primes Are Dead
The one exception being Russell (JR Bourne). Josephine (Sara Thompson) died when Clarke kicked her out of her brain, and Simone, who’d taken Abby (Paige Turco)’s body, died when Clarke pushed her out an airlock. The trailer makes it clear Russell’s out for revenge, so Clarke and pals had better watch their backs — but Clarke just might be out for revenge, too.
Kane and Abby are Dead
Don’t expect to see these two in Season 7, unfortunately. Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) nobly sacrificed himself in hopes of stopping the Primes from making Nightblood, and Russell killed Abby to use her body as a vessel for his wife, Simone. The only remaining “adult” characters now are Indra, Russell and Diyoza (Ivana Millecevic) although technically, none of the characters besides Madi are teenagers anymore.
