The 100 pushes teenagers to the extreme. The whole premise was to send a group of under 18s to Earth, risking their lives to see if the radiation was at a low enough level to survive. From the first moment, the teens faced adversity, both from the humans on the ground and within their own ranks. Their relationships and friendships were tested to the max. Here are nine times that they withstood the tests and the relationships proved to be unbreakable.


#9. Clarke and Lexa

Clarke and Lexa is one of the biggest ships on the show, but it was never easy for the two. They both came from different worlds, almost literally. Lexa, as the head of the Grounders, was faced with difficult decisions when it came to the Sky People on a daily basis. As her feelings for Clarke grew, she realized she needed to push past them and go against Clarke's wishes now and then.

Likewise, Clarke had to go against Lexa's wishes to keep her people safe. Despite loving Lexa, Clarke would always put her people first. In the end, the two were able to work together and shared a beautiful moment before Lexa's untimely death. Even in death, Lexa continued to help Clarke to destroy A.L.I.E. to protect free will.

#8. Kane and Abby

Abby and Kane were the couple you rooted for without realizing it at first on The 100. Kane came across as one of the most unwavering and uncaring men in power. It turned out that he was making difficult decisions when necessary, something that Abby would later learn how to do.

Throughout the series they have found themselves on separate sides at times. They've had to lock each other up and have physically fought against each other. Yet each time they overcome the battles and continue to support each other.

#7. Kane and Bellamy


Things took a turn for the worse for Bellamy throughout The 100 Season 3. He wasn't sure whether to side with the Grounders or Pike's anti-Grounder army. At times he'd turned to Kane for advice, but in the end made a decision that would risk the complete end to their relationship.

However, Kane was able to look past the decisions Bellamy made. He stuck by Bellamy to help through some of the darkest times. Kane kept the friendship together, proving that he understood what it was like to be torn.

#6. Clarke and Raven

Clarke and Raven didn't initially like each other, especially when Clarke killed Finn in the very first season. However, over the next couple of years they found a mutual respect for each other. They both had skills the other didn't, helping them to create a working relationship.

However, that working relationship has been tested on multiple occasions. In the end, Raven had to push Clarke into making some of the hardest decisions ever, which could have put them completely on the rocks. Clarke has also said that she would always pick Raven first when needing something, proving that their mutual respect is stronger than anything thrown at them.

#5. Bellamy and Octavia

The 100 Season 4 was never going to be easy for the siblings. Octavia watched her lover, Lincoln, get executed by Pike and part of her blamed Bellamy for that. The two found themselves on separate sides when it came to working with the Grounders in season 3.

Bellamy realized the error of his ways and tried his hardest to reconnect with Octavia. It looked like they would never find their way back to one another for a long time, especially while Bellamy continued to treat his sister as a child. In the end, Bellamy and Octavia shared a heartfelt speech, as Bellamy realized that his sister has grown up. It's all Octavia's ever really needed from Bellamy and it helps to bring them back together.

#4. Clarke and Bellamy

Both Bellamy and Clarke have had to make some of the hardest decisions throughout the series. They both took on leadership positions, with vastly different opinions and expectations. It was never going to be an easy ride, but they eventually developed a mutual respect and then friendship.

That friendship has always been tested, whether it's been Bellamy's decision to side with Pike or Clarke's decision to avoid him and the whole of Arkadia. However, they have always listened to each other and given one another the benefit of the doubt. They lean on each other for support when necessary and trust each other to make the best decisions for their people.

#3. Murphy and Emori

Emori originally came across as a selfish outcast only out for herself. Considering her situation that really isn't that surprising. However, it tested the potential relationship between Emori and Murphy in the end. That was especially the case when Emori chose to take the key to the City of Light.

In the end, Emori started to help because of her friendship and later love for Murphy. When Emori was in danger, Murphy protected her as much as he could. They developed a trust for one another, which is going to be difficult to break in the future after everything they've already gone through.

#2. Clarke and Abby

A mother and daughter relationship should be unconditional, but The 100 started with the two against each other. Flashbacks showed us that Abby was the reason Clarke had been thrown in prison and then sent to Earth in the first place. They were always working from this rocky patch.

There was hope when Abby came to Earth, but things didn't quite work out. They found themselves locking horns on multiple occasions, as they tried to do the best for each other. However, that love for each other remained. Whenever one was in danger, the other would consider dropping everything to save them. Nothing will ever change that they are related by blood, proving that unconditional love remains through thick and thin.

#1. Jasper and Monty

Jasper and Monty were best friends from a young age. Watching the two separate and struggle to understand each other during The 100 Seasons 3 and 4 was difficult. Jasper's cries for help were ignored or unacknowledged, as Monty tried to save their people. However, in the end their relationship mended.

When Jasper decided he was going to watch the radiation sweep the Earth, Monty put on a hazmat suit and stuck with him. While there was anger when Jasper killed himself, Monty found the ability to forgive Jasper and tell Jasper that he loved him. It was a tearful goodbye, showing that their friendship may have been through a difficult patch but it was always unbreakable.
