The CW Conclave: Six new characters you should tune in for

3 of 5

3.  Jordan Jasper Green – The 100

The 100‘s season five finale could have been a lot bloodier and more devastating. I’m not saying that I wanted it to be that brutal, but it felt almost strange that we got a kind of happy ending.

Of course, it did come at a cost. Long-time fan favorites Monty Green (Christopher Larkin) and Harper McIntyre (Chelsey Reist) chose not to go into cryo-sleep but rather to live out their lives aboard the spaceship. That decision ended up making them heroes, particularly Monty, but it also means we won’t see them again.

After he realized that Earth wouldn’t recover from yet another nuclear attack, Monty figured out how to save the human race by sending the ship to a new planet, which he knew the ship wouldn’t reach until well after his death.

While it’s quite upsetting that Monty and Harper only intended to be separated from their friends for a decade but were ultimately never able to reunite with them, the couple were at least able to experience the quiet, peaceful life they always wanted. Plus, they had a baby, now an adult, who is already beloved by The 100 fandom, following his brief cameo in the finale.

I’m referring, of course, to Jordan Jasper Green (Shannon Kook). His name alone is poignant, paying tribute to Monty’s best friend, Jasper Jordan (Devon Bostick), who died tragically as a teenager in season four, following a long battle with depression.

Jordan Green led a very sheltered life prior to going into cryo-sleep, presumably in his early twenties. Solely based on his cameo, he seems like the most cheerful character to ever exist on The 100. Hopefully, he won’t lose that, at least not entirely, over the course of season six.

Many fans are particularly looking forward to Jordan’s interaction with Madi (Lola Flanery). Though Jordan is significantly older than Madi, they are both the only members of the 100’s next generation. Additionally, Madi knows what it’s like to grow up with only your parent(s), so she can probably help Jordan adjust to life with Wonkru, especially since she’s now commander.

Unfortunately, The 100 won’t return on The CW for season six until, at least, midseason, so fans have a long hiatus ahead of them. In the meantime, just watch the scene where Jordan meets Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Bellamy (Bob Morley) on a loop. Jordan’s adorable smile will tide you over.
