'The 100' Season 3 Spoilers: What Is 'Perverse Instantiation'? Finale Title Explained [VIDEO]

Buckle up, The 100 fans; finale season is nearly upon us.

It's that time of year again; time for jaw dropping reveals, heartbreaking sequences, musical montages, and cliffhangers galore. The 100 still has another pair of episodes to go before its two-part finale, but The CW dropped the titles on Friday.

Get ready for "Perverse Instantiation: Part One" and "Perverse Instantiation: Part Two."

What exactly is a perverse instantiation? Well, it won't surprise you to learn that the term has to do with AIs, particularly AIs that don't follow their orders in quite the manner you anticipated.

A perverse instantiation is a form of malignant failure, i.e. a failure that results in human extinction. In this situation, an AI that "does what you ask, but what you ask turns out to be most satisfiable in unforeseen and destructive ways." An example would be a program that attempts to solve overpopulation with a nuclear apocalypse or to eliminate pain and sorrow by erasing a person's memories (we're looking at you, ALIE).

The ominous title jives with the terrifying teasers the cast has doled out over the last few weeks. Christopher Larkin (Monty) described the finale hour as "devastating," but Eliza Taylor (Clarke) can't wait to share it with fans.

"It's so good. I'm so excited for people to see it. That is my favorite episode I think," Taylor told EnStars at WonderCon 2016. "I haven't seen it yet; I really hope it went down the way I feel like we did it. It's always hard to tell, but it's great. It's awesome."

In the wake of "Demons," the delinquents split up once more and ALIE took control of the new Heda. Check out what's in store for next week's "Join or Die" (see a preview below).

"Clarke (Eliza Taylor) is on a mission that could change everything," The CW teased. "Meanwhile, Murphy (Richard Harmon) gains insight that might prove useful in ensuring his survival. Lastly, Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) reaches a breaking point."

Catch The 100 Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
