When "The 100" Season 3 ended last spring, fans were wondering if what ALIE told Clarke (Eliza Taylor) about an impending nuclear apocalypse hold some truth to it, or did she really just say that to save the City of Light. But now that Season 4 premiered, things are now finally becoming clear - ALIE was telling the truth.

Entertainment Weekly reported that "The 100" Season 4 storyline immediately picked after last year's finale episode. ALIE's claim is proved when during the final scene of the premiere episode; two people in Egypt are incinerated in a quick blast of nuclear fire.

Showrunner Jason Rothenberg confirmed that the nuclear apocalypse is "a real thing." He told Hollywood Reporter that it is coming, and that they would put a clock on this season. And then late in the season, there is going to be a "death wave."

Also, the reason why the show picked up so quickly from the last one is because they wanted to reset the table quickly, Rothenberg said. He added that the story has already started, and the opening gun for Season 4 was exactly where Season 3 left off - when ALIE tells Clarke that the apocalypse is coming.

Now, why didn't Clarke hold on to that secret a little while longer? Why did she tell Bellamy (Bob Morley), her mother Abby (Paige Turco), and more about what ALIE said? Rothenberg said that the circumstances of the premiere present themselves, and ultimately they are going to have to fight a war to survive.

"The 100" Season 4 Episode 2 will be titled "Heavy Lies the Crown." The synopsis of the upcoming episode says: The burden of leading weighs heavily upon Clarke and Bellamy when different challenges force them to determine who will live and die. Episode 2 is set to air on February 8.
