With two confirmed deaths and one life still hanging in the balance, last week’s premiere of The CW’s The 100 made one thing abundantly clear: No one is safe. Star Eliza Taylor tells TVLine that trend will continue tonight (9/8c), as new dangers — and dangerous new relationships — come to light on this crazy planet we call Earth.

Below, Taylor gives us a taste of what’s to come in future episodes, including a few new surprise alliances in the works.
TVLINE | The last thing we saw was Jasper getting impaled by that huge spear. Is that where Episode 2 picks up?
[Laughs] Yes, it picks up directly after the spear. Basically, we all think we should run away from whatever that thing is, but then we hear a scream, and it’s possible Jasper’s still alive. So me, Octavia and Monty go on a mission to find him — and whatever it was that took him.
TVLINE | Since there was a spear involved, I assume this enemy is… human?
That’s highly possible.
TVLINE | Will the enemy remain a mystery, or will we learn about them soon?
What we will slowly learn about them is that, although they’re hostile, they’ve got good reason to be protecting their land. I’m sure, eventually, we’ll come into contact with them.
TVLINE | And can we expect other non-human threats? That giant fish creature gave me nightmares.
Absolutely. There’s a huge cloud that starts barreling towards us, so that’s one of the dangers. And there are a few other things that’ll jump out at us that you won’t expect.
TVLINE | Clarke seems to especially clash with Octavia. Can they ever become friends?
I think Octavia can be quite hostile when she wants to be, and Clarke can be quite bossy when she wants to be — so they butt heads. But one thing they have in common is that they both do care. I think, there will be times during the series when they set their differences aside and get along, but there will also be times when they continue to rub each other the wrong way.
TVLINE | I know survival is priority No. 1, but will there also be time for romance?
I think so. I think there’s a good chance of romance for a few characters, but there’s also a good chance it won’t last long, given the circumstances.
TVLINE | So, basically, don’t expect a third date.
[Laughs] Exactly, you might not survive long enough to see it.
TVLINE | Lastly, will the parents interact with the kids, or will their two world remain separate?
I think the writers have found clever ways to connect the two storylines. You’ll see us interacting more and more with the ark as the series goes on.
