Phoenix Comicon is in full swing this weekend. The 100’s Bob Morley, who plays Bellamy Blake, flew in all the way from Australia for a spotlight panel, in which he reflected on the last three seasons of the show and his thoughts as to what’s next considering that “explosive” finale. Read below for some of the highlights from the event.

Spoiler Alert for those who have not yet watched the season 3 finale of The 100.

Many of the questions for Morley centered on Bellamy’s relationship with the other characters in the show, specifically Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and his sister, Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos).  He’s not sure there will be much time in the next season for Clarke and Bellamy to talk and work out their emotions and reconnect, but he, like many of the fans, hope they find that opportunity at some point to talk about it.  As for Bellamy’s relationship with his sister, it’s been a roller coaster since season 1.  He didn’t have much insight as to what to expect on that front, but he does hint that the consequences from Octavia’s actions in the finale will have an effect on the two of them in the next season.

He also touched on some of his thoughts and predictions for season 4.  As we know, in the season 3 finale, Clarke destroyed one threat, ALIE, but not before discovering that the earth was on the verge of a nuclear meltdown and was destined to be unlivable within six months.  Morley’s response to this turn of events, “How the hell are we supposed to get out of this one?”  This, I think is the same question on everyone’s mind.  Morley believes this impending apocalypse will (hopefully) force the Grounders and Skycrew together to come up with a solution.  He also hopes Bellamy will start stepping up and making his own decisions.  Morley, unlike many of the fans, does not see Bellamy as a leader yet.  He believes Bellamy is “better at enforcing an idea than generating one” and sees him as someone who continually makes decisions based on the actions of others (primarily Clarke and Octavia).  He wants Bellamy to start thinking for himself and become the leader he is more than capable of being.

Tune in to The 100 on CW, when season 4 debuts in early 2017!
