The Gifted (S01E12, S01E13) “eXtraction”, “X-roads”

Sadly my friends this is the finale for this season of The Gifted, but no need for tears as it has received a renewal! Until then, let’s break down the final two episodes. We start with the Strucker’s seeking out Reed’s mother to protect her from the hands of Sentinel. It was a short lived…
