The 100 fandom exploded over the weekend when a very spoilery clip was released "in error," and though it was taken down from the Internet, some quick-fingered fans were able to take screenshots of the spoiler scene in question.

Avert your eyes now if you don't wish to be spoiled for tonight's episode, "Bodyguard of Lies!"

It appears that at some point during the episode, for reasons unknown, Commander of the Grounders Lexa (Alycia Debnam Carey) kisses leader of the Sky People Clarke (Eliza Taylor). But since that "kiss" could happen under a countless number of circumstancesDream sequence! Hallucination! Argument! Fake-out! Real passionate moment!E! News went straight to executive producer Jason Rothenberg to get the skinny on what exactly fans can expect from this "kiss," plus what else is coming in the last episode before the two-part finale begins!

"It's going to be a nerve-wracking but great episode, even though we've already spoiled the biggest plot point of the season," Rothenberg jokes. "I'm not going to spoil anything else!"

When asked if the leaked clip was indeed a leak, Rothenberg wasn't so sure.

"I don't think it was accidental, actually," Rothenberg says. "But controversy is good, people are talking about it, so it's okay."

The most important thing Rothenberg wants fans to know is that just because you know this kiss is coming does not mean you know the whole story of how and why it happens.

"It's a tough moment for me to talk about without giving away too much," Rothenberg says. "All I would say is that context really matters. When that kiss happens and how it happens and what follows it especially is going to affect the way that people respond to it as much as the kiss itself. It's a real kiss, certainly, we're not trying to pull a fast one on anybody. It's genuinely a moment, but it doesn't mean that anything that has happened before is meaningless. It certainly doesn't change the plan of anything going forward. And it really sets up brilliantly for what happens in the next episode, which I can't talk about at all."

But that kiss is only a small part of what's coming up on the CW's hit post-apocalyptic drama. Now that Maya's (Eve Harlow) father has rallied some of his like-minded friends inside Mount Weather, they're going to help hide the 44 Ark teens from President Cage (Johnny Whitworth) and lead a new revolution from the inside.

"It was really important for us to show that Mount Weather is not this monolithic bad guy," Rothenberg says. "There are people there who are good. Maya is legitimately on the side of what's right, with our heroes and their cause, and she's not the only one. There's a history of resistance inside Mount Weather of people who understand morally that what's done in the Harvest chamber is reprehensible. But also, you die without that blood, so it's a tough battle."

And it's about to get even tougher.

"Cage gets more and more desperate," Rothenberg reveals. "He realizes that there must be people helping to hide these 44 people, since they didn't just disappear and they didn't get out. He's going to turn up the heat hotter and hotter to try and find them, and that's going to be ongoing into the finale."

At least the 44 still have Bellamy (Bob Morley) with them on the inside, working undercover as a guard to help break them out. And he's going to get help of his own in tonight's episode.

"Wick [Steve Talley] and Raven [Lindsey Morgan] are going to help Bellamy," Rothenberg says. "Bellamy's mission to find the acid fog machine and disable it has been sidetracked because things keep coming up that are more pressing. He's been pulled off his greater mission to save the 44. But until he shuts down that acid fog, the Grounders outside can't get to Mount Weather. This is the episode where that story gets told, and in order to figure out a way to disable that machine, he enlists Raven's help. It's a really hard problem, and she needs help herself, so she goes to Wick for help."

Bellamy's baby sister has been on her own missionto get closer to the Groundersand Rothenberg reveals that although Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) has been quite the badass all season long, she's about to reach a major crossroads in her life.

"The girl who came off that drop ship yelling, ‘We're back bitches!' is gone," Rothenberg says. "She's getting closer and closer to Indra (Adina Porter) and gaining more and more acceptance with the Grounders and that's hugely important for her. The question is, at what point will her loyalties be tested? Who is she really, a Sky Person or a Grounder? We'll see her struggle with that soon."

And as for that trek to the mythical City of Light led by Jaha (Isaiah Washington)? Expect that journey to experience a more-than-slight hiccup.

"We've got an explosive storyline coming up for them in this episode," Rothenberg says with a laugh. "It's crazy. The teaser of this episode is just mind-blowingly cool. Jaha and Murphy [Richard Harmon] and the whole journey to the City of Light really starts to ratchet up in this episode. That's all I can really say about it without giving too much away. We catch back up with the people that are left in that party on their way to the City of Light, they're still in the desert and some crazy stuff happens."

The 100 airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on the CW.
