CW's 'The 100' reveals that lead character Clarke is bisexual

The CW's post-apocalyptic drama The 100 last night revealed that series lead Clarke (Eliza Taylor) is bisexual when she shared a kiss with warrior Lexa (Alycia Debnam Carey). The series takes place 97 years after Earth is mostly destroyed by a nuclear war when a spaceship holding the last of humanity sends 100 juvenile prisoners to the surface as a last ditch attempt to see if the planet is habitable again. The teens, led by Clarke, soon realize that there are people left on Earth, the "Grounders" and their descendants who survived the war cobbled into a community led by Lexa. The two, as commanders of their respective clans, have agreed to team up to fight the violent opposing tribe, the Mountain Men.

In last night's episode "Bodyguard of Lies," Clarke confronts Lexa after finding out she has tried to have a member of the 100 killed. Lexa replies that the Grounders ways may be harsh but they are necessary for survival, and Clarke questions whether merely surviving is all they can hope for anymore.

A recent episode saw Clarke forced to sacrifice her ex-boyfriend Finn and inspired Lexa to share her own story about love lost.

“I lost someone special to me, too. Her name was Costia. She was captured by the Ice Nation because their queen believed she knew my secrets, because she was mine. They tortured her, killed her, cut off her head. I thought I’d never get over the pain, but I did.”

The timing may not be right for a relationship now with Clarke saying, "I'm not ready to be with anyone. Not yet," but there's hope for the future.

The series has already been renewed for a third season. Catch all new episodes of The 100 on the CW, Wednesdays at 9, to keep up to date with Lexa and Clarke.
