9 Characters Who Could Return in ‘The 100’ Season 7

The 100 Season 7 Characters Who Should Return
Bettina Strauss/The CW; Sergei Bachlakov/The CW; Katie Yu/The CW

Usually, the last season of a show means cameo appearances aplenty — and it doesn’t seem The 100 will be bucking the trend.

In the first episode, fans were treated to an unexpected surprise: a return appearance of a long-dead character in Zach McGowan’s Roan. With the anomaly causing hallucinations and various characters being drawn to it, it’s totally possible that as they get closer, we’ll glimpse characters we haven’t seen for dozens of episodes.

Here are some dead friends and foes who might rise from the grave and who might see them.

The 100, Wednesdays, 8/7c, The CW

Earth Kills
Cate Cameron/The CW


Hallucinated by: Clarke

Is there much of a plot-relevant reason for Wells (Eli Goree) to show up again? No. Would it be a really cool callback to Season 1? Oh, absolutely.

Fans might have to think for a minute to remember who Wells Jaha was. If you’re confused, he was Jaha’s son and Clarke’s best friend who took the blame for her dad’s death, only for Clarke to realize he was innocent… and then he got murdered by a little girl. That was Clarke’s first detrimental, personal loss on the ground. Because his death was such a turning point for Clarke, it’s possible that if she sees anyone, she might see him.

The Other Side

Harper and/or Monty

Hallucinated by: Jordan

Monty (Christopher Larkin) might not come back, considering he played a pivotal role in Clarke’s mind space last season. But Harper (Chelsey Reist) hasn’t shown up again, and with Jordan (Shannon Kook) siding with the Sanctumites, there’s no telling what kind of hallucinogenic stuff he might ingest in the name of the Primes. Might that lead him back to his mom? Only time will tell.

Shifting Sands
Katie Yu/The CW


Hallucinated by: Bellamy or Octavia

These two grew pretty close in earlier seasons — it was clear Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) had grown to think of Bellamy (Bob Morley) like a son, and Bell respected him like a father. Unfortunately, they didn’t share much screentime in Season 5, and Kane was killed off without having much time with, well, anyone in Season 6. As such, there was never really much closure on the whole Kane and Bellamy friendship; viewers didn’t even get to see him react to Kane’s death.

If Bellamy doesn’t see Kane, it’s possible Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) might. Their relationship was far more contentious than that of her brother and the former Chancellor, but they did care about each other. If Octavia feels any kind of guilt about the role she played in Kane’s death — and Henry Ian Cusick’s schedule was open — Kane might just resurface for a moment or two.

Unity Day

Hallucinated by: Raven or Clarke

It’s surprising that Finn (Thomas McDonnell) didn’t show up in Clarke’s mind space, considering he was (probably?) her first love, and she was responsible for his death. If Clarke ends up going through the anomaly, she might just see him again, but it’s maybe even more possible that Raven (Lindsey Morgan) will. She was arguably closer to Finn than Clarke was, and it’d be a neat callback to Season 1 in the show’s last episodes.

The Chosen
Diyah Pera/The CW


Hallucinated by: Murphy or Octavia

Remember when Jaha (Isaiah Washington) and Murphy (Richard Harmon) went looking for the City of Light together? Remember when this birthed the Murphy quote, “Camp You is that way,” and the equally hilarious “Touch me again and I’ll end you… in a non-criminal way”? Good times. Anyway, if the show was looking for a way for Jaha to re-emerge, Murphy might be the best candidate to see him — or Octavia, given that Jaha spent a decent amount of time in his death episode trying to advise her on how to be a leader.

Perverse Instantiation - Part Two
Bettina Strauss/The CW


Hallucinated by: Clarke

Yes, this is a long shot; if Lexa (Alycia Debnam Carey) was going to show up again, the perfect time would’ve been when Clarke found her throne in her mind space. But hey, maybe Alycia Debnam Carey’s schedule wasn’t open then, and it is now. Who knows? At any rate, it’d be cool to see the Commander one last time before the show ends; whether or not you wanted her to end up with Clarke, it can’t be denied that she became an iconic character who meant a lot to a lot of people.

Sergei Bachlakov/The CW


Hallucinated by: Raven

Speaking of people Raven’s lost, she never really got closure from Zeke’s death, and it’s clear she loved him. It’d be cool for her to see him again before she goes through the anomaly, if she does at all.

Hallucinated by: Clarke… or Murphy?

This really should happen. If the first episode showed fans anything, it’s that Clarke’s not over her mom’s death; even including Lexa, it’s probably the biggest personal loss Clarke has suffered on the show. If Clarke heads for the anomaly, given where her mind has been, it’s more than possible she’d see her mom again. What kind of conversation would they have? If we’re using Echo’s (Tasya Teles)’s visions as a blueprint, it might not be pleasant. But if there’s any justice in this post-apocalyptic world, Clarke’s hypothetical vision should be. Just let her have one nice thing!

But Clarke’s not the only one who’s still upset about what happened to Abby: Murphy’s still harboring some serious guilt, which, at least in the eyes of some of his friends, isn’t entirely unmerited. If he could “talk” to Abby and she forgave him, maybe he could forgive himself.
