Executive producer Jason Rothenberg previewed the upcoming episode in a promo. According to Rothenberg, the episode will feature an origin story. "It's a flashback to before the war, in fact, we even see the apocalypse, that created the world as we know it as the 100, happened from the vantage point of people that were on space stations at the time."

Meanwhile, on the ground in Polis, Lexa and Clarke have become close said the producer, and added, "We have this two great stories, we have this Grounder political continuing conflict between the Sky Crew and Polis and the 12 Clan and how they all fit together, and we have this AI [Artificial intelligence] story."

"This is the episode where the two shall meet, and realise at last what it all means in a mindblowing way," teased the showrunner.
