TV Review: The 100 (Series 4, Episode 3)
Share This Article:
This week truly reminded me why I enjoy watching The 100 so much. Full of twists and turns, The Four Horseman is arguably the best episode of series four so far. The episode opens in Arkadia with Raven dealing with the stresses of rationing and Clarke feeling the pressure to list the 100 people who will be sealed inside when the radiation hits. The decision to save those enslaved by Ice Nation last week has only increased the troubles. Not only that, but the radiation will hit within two months, not the six that A.L.I.E initially gave them. Luna returns this episode, but it’s not good news. She brings members of her clan to receive medical treatment for an unknown disease. Abby, who is no longer in Polis, confirms that the group have contracted acute radiation sickness after they ate an irradiated fish. The effect of the radiation has become so severe that insects and sea creatures are beginning to die. Now tasked with treating Luna and her people, Raven is the one to decide whether or not to give the newcomers radiation medication. Focusing on keeping resources for those who will be sealed in during the radiation, Raven rejects Abby’s plea for medication for the child, who is suffering from acute radiation sickness. Despite Raven’s insistence, Murphy, who has returned to The Ark to steal food, utilises his thieving skills to steal medication for the child, thus mimicking his own father's crime that got him killed.
