The Dead Zone is a location featured in The 100. It is unknown what location it was before the Nuclear Apocalypse, only that it is not far off from what was once known as Washington, DC. It is likely to be in what was New York, as the Statue of Liberty is seen half-buried in sand during the opening titles and the Manhattan Bridge can be seen in the background behind Jaha's missile after he lands on Earth.
Throughout the series Edit
In Many Happy Returns, Jaha wakes up and comes across Zoran, who takes him back to his mother's and father's camp. Jaha is given food and drink as Sienna tells him that he is in The Dead Zone on the way to the City of Light. She and her family are searching for the City of Light after they left their home so her deformed son, Zoran, could live. As there is a bounty on Sky People, Osias then turns Jaha over to a Grounder soldiers in exchange for a horse to help his family travel to the City of Light.
In Survival of the Fittest, Murphy takes Jaha to the drop ship to visit his son's grave. The next morning, eleven other Sky People have arrived and Jaha invites Murphy to join them in their journey to the City of Light, a place where everyone is accepted.
In Rubicon, John Murphy, Jaha and eleven others embark on their journey towards the City Of Light, traveling through The Dead Zone. While traveling they come across a grounder named Emori who tells them she is also seeking the City of Light. Emori later betrays the group, taking all of their supplies. Murphy, Jaha, and four others continue the journey while Caspian and six others make their way back to Camp Jaha.
In Bodyguard of Lies, the remaining group continues their journey. Two people are blown up by land mines, leaving Jaha, Murphy and the two others sitting and waiting for a sandstorm to pass in The Dead Zone. When it ends, the group carefully makes their way through the minefield. They come to the end and believe they have reached the City of Light but it turns out to be a large field of solar panels. Murphy throws a rock at a panel in rage, but awakens a flying drone. The drone leads them to a boat which they use to cross a large body of water, abandoning The Dead Zone.
These are the residents of The Dead Zone. It is unclear whether or not these people are still within The Dead Zone, however, this is where they were last seen. Their fate is unknown, due to Praimfaya.
Jaha's Followers Edit
Twelve Sky People, including John Murphy, joined Thelonious Jaha on his journey to the City of Light. Only Jaha and Murphy are known to have made it out alive from the Dead Zone. The whereabouts of Caspian and the six other Sky People who decided to return to Camp Jaha are currently unknown.Notable Members
