(The CW/Official Facebook page)

Anticipation was running high when season 3 of "The 100" premiered and by all accounts, it seems it was worth the wait.

The premiere episode, "Wanheda: Part One" picked up a three months after the events of the season 2 finale. Clarke has been on her own since she left her people and is being hunted by the Ice Nation and Grounders. Apparently, the Ice Nation is calling the erstwhile commander of the Sky People Wanheda, which means "Commander of Death," after what she did at Mount Weather. They're also targeting her because they believe they can get her power once they kill her.

Of course, the others won't let that happen to Clarke. A synopsis for episode 2, also titled "Wanheda," reveals that Bellamy (Bob Morley) and Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) will risk everything to save Clarke (Eliza Taylor) from those hunting her. Abby (Paige Turco) thinks about using Mount Weather as a medical facility while Murphy (Richard Harmon) hatches a plan to betray Chancellor Thelonious (Isaiah Washington).

A trailer for the upcoming episode hints at terrible times ahead for Clarke. The clip starts with a shot of Bellamy's group in a field when they hear war drums. A field full of people of people is shown next, followed by Monty making a promise that they will find her. Clarke is then shown in the crosshairs of either a gun or binoculars and she's gagged. A grounder, Roan, taunts Clarke, calling her "wanheda." She tells him she's no one and he reveals that a lot of people are looking for no one. The clip ends with Clarke being pulled away by 2 men while she shouts that if they "want the Commander of Death, you've got her."

Reception for the third season of "The 100" has been very positive. Hypable reported that the show's numbers haven't been this good since 2014, which bodes well for its renewal chances.

Episode 2 of "The 100" season 3 will be aired on Jan. 28.
