Raven is giving somebody serious side-eye back at Camp Jaha. Here's hoping that Raven has a better (or at least less traumatic) time in Season 3. Even if the going gets (or, rather, remains) tough, we know Raven can handle it. She's easily one of the strongest figures on this show.
Niylah is another new character this season. Word has it that she is a Grounder who works at a trading post that Clarke frequents. Fun fact: Niylah's portrayer, Jessica Harmon, is the real-life sister of Richard Harmon, who plays Murphy.
Check out Octavia, looking majestic astride a horse. Also, let's take a minute to appreciate how far this girl has come -- she's gone from living under the floor on the Ark to being a badass, horse-riding Grounder warrior princess! Amazing.
Here is the first official photo of new character Roan. This Grounder warrior is one of several new characters that we'll meet in Season 3. We know almost nothing about Roan yet, as the show has kept any info about his character tightly under wraps. We're excited to meet him, even though he looks a little scary!
I mean, seriously. How can anyone look this good amidst all of the catastrophe and living on a post-apocalyptic irradiated Earth?! It's so unfair. Abby is standing near Lincoln and Octavia, and she appears to have fully recovered after experiencing forced bone marrow extraction in "Blood Must Have Blood, Part Two."
The gloominess continues. Jasper isn't looking too hot and, like Clarke, he's undergone an extreme hair makeover. We love the longstanding friendship between Octavia and Jasper, so it's great to see Octavia (literally) supporting her friend here. What's not so great is how distraught Jasper looks -- though it isn't surprising, given the season two finale events at Mount Weather. It also appears that he's suffering from an injury to his throat, based on that blood-soaked bandage. Poor Jasper.
Is this Lincoln's happy face? Probably not, right? Oh, well. Perhaps his gloomy demeanor has something to do with that serious discussion he and Octavia were having in the last picture. Also, it looks like Lincoln is still among the Sky People in this photo.
Finally! Lincoln and Octavia didn't have a chance to spend a whole lot of time together last season, what with the full-scale war breaking out between the Mountain Men and the Grounders/Sky People. It looks like they share a moment in the season premiere -- unfortunately, Octavia's upset face isn't giving off the vibe that this is a happy moment.
Jaha: No pain, no hate, no envy. Murphy: No thanks. Jaha: John... Murphy: No. Pain, hate, envy. Those are the ABCs of me. You get rid of them and there's nothing left, so why don't you get that thing out of my face?
