  • This is old but a year ago or so you responded to a post about not watching 'The 100' after Wells' death by suggesting that people die in post-apocolypse stories. You severely missed the point. Wells was interesting in a show that, after his crappy pointless death, was just another pretty white people with problems story with a twist.


    He had this whole thing going with being the pariah and the gravedigger, the one person with unimpeachable moral character and a terrific foil to the spoiled brats following Bellamy for no reason other than idiocy.


    And he was a better actor than anyone else on the show including the older actors.

      Wells died with virtually no screentime. I never cared about his character or got a chance to know him. I was annoyed when he died because the black guy always dies first, but the first five episodes of this show were terrible anyway so I didn't expect much. Besides, there was soon Lincoln and Miller and Jaha so I could overlook the covert racism like I do most every other show out there (at least until it became blatantly overt and borderline hate speech on this show).

      Maybe if the show had been better quality at the beginning of S1, I would have been more sympathetic to Wells' death, but as it was, I mostly considered S1 as starting at episode 6 (and the show ending at 2x16).
