A new life that will not last very long for Shaw played by Jordan Bolger. In episode 1 of season 6 of The 100, the character would die after having crossed a barrier to radioactive while he was exploring the new planet. Arrived in the series in season 5, the darling Raven went away almost as quickly as it had come, the one thing that has saddened-and a little pissed off – many fans. Some have indeed found this to be a death too quick and unnecessary.
The reasons for the departure of Jordan Bolger
If you’re one of the people who are disgusted by the death of Shaw, to know that there is a (good) reason ! In an interview to TVLine, Jason Rothenberg, the creator and showrunner of The 100, revealed the reasons of this sad event : Jordan Bolger was in fact more available for the filming of the series. “Jordan has found a job on another series. It is amazing and I would have loved to keep it but we were in this situation where we were going to lose.” has he entrusted to you. He then adds that he and the writers had to think of a way to do away with the character. But then why have they killed ? “This death is not satisfactory, it is tragic and heartbreaking, but there was not many other options. We are not the kind of series where a character can leave his job and move away. It was the only way” he explained. It fits !
The season 6 of The 100 continues on Tuesdays on the CW.
