The 100's Lindsey Morgan on Raven's New Crisis, Possible Future With Finn

The 100 Season 2

On a show like The CW’s The 100, in which survival skills are everything, Lindsey Morgan admits that her character — who’s practically an amputee at this point — couldn’t be in a worse position.

“It’s super weird for Raven to be less mobile than everyone else,” Morgan tells TVLine. “In fact, it sucks, and it’s kind of depressing. She wants to be in the trenches with everyone else, but she can’t be. She hates not having a purpose, she hates that she feels helpless and she hates that she’s becoming a burden to others.”

Below, Morgan spills on the new-ish man in Raven’s life — whom we’ll see on tonight’s episode (9/8c) — as well as the possibility of a reunion with Finn and a major “shift” in the coming weeks.

TVLINE | I hear there’s going to be some “tension” between you and Wick (Steve Talley). Can you say what kind?
Sexual 
tension! Sexual! [Laughs] No, I’m just kidding. Do you really think I would tell you that? … Their tension comes from having known each other and worked together on the Ark. It’s like going back to high school after you’ve changed; people who knew you then see you now and it’s kind of an uneasy feeling. Wick knew her as this bad-ass chick that could do anything, but now she’s immobile and hurt and vulnerable. She’d rather work with a stranger than this guy because he knows her.

the-100-raven-finnTVLINE | And what about Raven and Finn? In your own words, what’s their relationship now?
Right now, I’d say they’re in the calm after the storm. Raven’s not mad anymore; at the end of the day, he’s still her best friend, her family. She also wouldn’t be alive if Finn hadn’t risked his life to get her the Grounder medicine, and he was there for her during her surgery. He held her hand through it all, and that was all time he could have spent looking for Clarke. He only left because she told him to leave, and she did that because she loves him. She knew, in his heart, he wanted to leave and look for Clarke. It’s all pretty mature.

TVLINE | Oh, come on, Clarke already has Bellamy. She can’t call dibs on every guy!
I know, right? Clarke can share! … So greedy.

TVLINE | This season, with everyone on earth, it feels like there are a million different storylines going on at once. Do you ever get confused?
[Laughs] Yes! It’s insane, but as crazy as things are, I think this season’s pretty awesome. We’re a show with no shortage of story. We give it to the audience as much as we can at full force. Sometimes, I’m like, “We just crammed five episodes into one! Bam!”

TVLINE | Any favorite storylines outside of your own?
So many, are you kidding me? I loved Jaha’s journey back to earth, first of all. Lincoln also has a really cool story coming up where they start to harvest him, which was another favorite to read. And then there’s Finn, Bellamy and Murphy and everything they’re going through. I feel like Raven’s probably the most boring one right now. [Laughs]

TVLINE | With only a few weeks left before the fall finale, what can you tease?
Well, we’re not slowing down anytime soon. I’ll also say there’s going to be a big shift … a big change happening.

    Love this show and love how the female characters are being developed, especially Raven. I’m eager to see her tension with Wick turn into a romance, they’re so hot, hahahah

    • I love the development of the female characters as well. The women are strong and brave but they are also the ones who make the most rational/logical decisions(Clarke has walked a fine line this season, but…). A very rare feat in this tv landscape.

    Raven is the best. I don’t think she should be down just because of her disability. She can still walk She still has the most important part work her mind. Did not stop Stephen hawking

  3. LT says:

    I dig this show.

    This has been one of my favourite shows on tv this fall season. With 98% of the new shows sucking or failing in the ratings (only Jane the Virgin looks to be around after Christmas as the sole survivor of the new fall shows I like) I’m glad the returning shows are stepping it up. I’ve also really enjoyed watching this show commercial-free on Netflix which holds the rights in Canada.

  5. J. says:

    Love this show. I watched that sneak peek with Raven and Wick and they are awesome together.

  6. Samantha says:

    I am so rooting for a Flarke reunion. They belong together.

    I also love Jactavia, but have accepted Lincoln as Octavia’s love interest.

    This season is great. Season one was the best tho.

  7. Abby says:

    I’m actually hoping the show kills off Finn. Story wise it would be great, with lots of opportunities for other characters to grieve, and he just doesn’t do enough alive for me to care that he stays.

  8. Max says:

    Can you quit asking her about Finn?? That relationship ended very well and maturely for both, can the media move the hell on because everyone else has.

  9. Eric says:

    Really like the show. Just as Clarke gets somewhere qith Aniya, the idiots kill her, but maybe a miraculous recovery coming. I’d so like to see them team up to take on mountain. I know the mountain people are surviving, but seems they could find a better way. They need to feel pain they’re inflicting.

  10. kayla says:

    I just want Finn and Clarke to stay together they are meant to be from season one.

  11. Jessica Graves says:

    Raven is the best. I just want her to be with someone who realizes her awesomeness. I feel like Finn might be realizing it again. I have a huge problem with Finn. I just realize he would realize what he had with Raven. But I love the addition of Wick. I could ship Raven with anyone. Except Bellamy, because he and Clarke are meant to be.
