The 100

The finale was last night, and executive producer Jason Rothenberg talked about the arc of the whole season and what parallels the show had to our world:

In a lot of ways, they go through the crucible — "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger." They were fuck-ups, many of them coming into the season, and this adventure, this stress that they lived under constantly really turns them into almost a military unit. Certainly by the end that's true. I think that's what happens. We send kids off to die in wars and fight in wars when they are 18 years old. That's how old most of the hundred are. So someone signs up for the military and when they're done, they are usually mature. It changes them in many ways and I think that's what happened. I think it's a good analogy for what the hundred go through. We throw them into the fire. Baptism by fire.

It shapes them and really quite quickly. It was interesting to see them willing to step up and be that way. To decide that they wanted to contribute and wanted to help each other that way.

Realistically, I think that is what happens. If you're put in a dangerous situation, you will either take it seriously or you will die. And they realized pretty quickly that is what they had to do, and that's what they did. That's one of the things we sort of had planned all along that these juvenile delinquents were going to come together and they were going to survive. It's a story about survival. It's not a story about who's romantically interested in who. It's not a soap in this world. It's a story of survival that has some romantic storylines. That's certainly not what the show is about or should be about.
