The Gifted (S02E03) “coMplications”

This week’s episode was both heartbreaking and wonderful. Seeing Reed (Stephen Moyer) come into his powers was great. He had been fighting it for so long that I’m hoping now he’ll embrace them. It was probably some what relieving to have Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) be there for it, at least she has some grasp…

The Gifted (S02E02) “unMoored”

This week’s episode was very character informative. We finally got to see how John (Blair Redford) was brought into The Underground, which felt almost a little Wolverine a lá X-Men (2000). Evangeline (Erinn Ruth) is a high powered mutant lawyer whom plays messenger for the X-Men, reaching out to anyone who is deemed worthy to…

The Gifted (S02E01) “eMergence”

Welcome back folks! This week we are graced by the return of The Gifted, and boy oh boy was it good. We pick up a few months after the events of season one, and there have been many changes for our now split crew. Andy (Percy Hynes White) and Polaris (Emma Dummont) have new looks…

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…

The Gifted (S01E11) “3 X 1”

This week The Gifted returned to our tv screens after a short break for the holidays, and it certainly seems they writers have saved the best bits for the end of the season. We learn even more about The Stepford Cuckoo’s, though it appears as though they are sticking with three instead of five like…

The Gifted (S01E10) “eXploited”

This week’s fall finale has certainly left us clamouring for more and thankfully we won’t have to wait long. The series picks up in January, where we will discover the consequences of this episodes actions. Esme continues to manipulate the Mutant Underground for her own means, this time focusing on the Strucker’s. She sends them…

The Gifted (S01E09) “outfoXed”

Holy cannoli did we have a crazy episode. Esme stepped over the line, putting everyone in danger for her own gains. It once again brings up the complex conversation regarding the responsibility of certain powers. This was a prevalent theme through out the whole episode, presenting itself with Polaris and the Strucker siblings. However, it…

The Gifted (S01E08) “threat of eXtinction”

What a heavy episode we were given this week. The Strucker family is given further depth when Reed’s father is introduced, a former Trask employee and current antiques dealer. Reed is reasonably hesitant to contact his estranged father but the group agree that the answers he could provide would be invaluable. It is easy for…

The Gifted (S01E07) “eXtreme measures”

Monday nights episode saw our main group split up for the most part, allowing a few subplots to be explored. By far the most interesting was that of Blink and ThunderBird. The pair set off to find the mysterious road that Clarice kept opening portals to when she was ill. Slowly we begin to uncover…

The Gifted (S01E06) “got your siX”

This week’s episode of The Gifted doled out a hearty helping of relationship developments, with a light sprinkling of action that the series is becoming known for. It was nice to see Reed get some quality time with Andy, with Marcos adding his own unique perspective to their discussions. Andy is growing steadily as a…
