I think we collectively need to move on from Alycia's schedule thing, if not we're going to go mad. Maybe she could film but maybe she didn't want to, maybe she wanted her 5 month break for vacationing or something and i don't blame her for not telling us, imagine the backlash from this fandom (that while passionate is still a little nuts). I just get this vibe she wanted to move on to another project, maybe that's just me, and i'm not mad at her or anything but i do feel she was done with Lexa.
From Shawna’s deleted periscope she said, “Alycia wanted to come back.” The point is that Jason didn’t have to KILL HER off the show to reveal the AI. He killed her because he said she was busy filming FTWD and was no longer going to be available, which is a LIE! There wouldn’t have been this huge negative backlash if he didn’t kill Lexa, but instead had Clarke go back to Arkadia, get sucked into the City of Light and then Lexa and her due to their ‘real human connection’ was able to help draw Clarke out of ALIE’s control as she touched her in the real reality. It would show how love is not weakness and isn’t something that can be created by a machine, nor stopped by a machine. They could then figure out how to destroy ALIE by uniting with the Skaikru in their attempts to save everyone. This would fit in with ADC’s schedule of only being able to come back for the last episode (or 2) of season 3 then would allow her to be in 4a, and if she had to be killed then for the story, then we would at least have 3-6 episodes of Clexa and Lexa as they try to rebuild things after they destroyed ALIE.
Lexa is Alycia’s favorite character and she wanted to come back and play Lexa. Even now, Lexa is inside the Flame and she could come back for a cameo for like 1-3 episodes like i have laid out in my season 4 theory with the hologram. I don’t doubt now with everything happening that she wants to move on and do other projects. The point is that this whole blacklash was caused by Jason killing Lexa due to ‘scheduling’ when he knew that wasn’t the case. FTWD shoot at the end of the year (Nov-March) while The 100 shoots from (July/August- Jan/Feb), this is about 4-5 months worth of time for ADC to film stuff for season 4 with Lexa VERY MUCH ALIVE. I’m so freakin’ pissed.
