Unfortunately, we all knew this was probably coming. Maybe Hulu will pick it up. Who knows. But until then... it’s been real
I love hero shows and movies, having grown up watching the cartoon in the 90's I am especially fond of the X-Men. They along with Batman and Superman would be some of my favorite shows to watch.
The Gifted was both a delight and took the human/mutant conflict to the next level. It gave us some wonderful characters amazing special effects and had some political tones which could be painfully close to home in our current time.
The Struckers were unique. Although not mutant haters they did not know what it really meant to be a mutant. They enjoyed a safe and comfortable life, Reed helped prosecute mutants. He wasn't a bigot or hateful, but still he played a role in imprisoning many innocent people who were persecuted by an unfair justice system. But when Andy and Lauren were revealed to be mutants they suddenly found themselves in a very different situation and were forced to see the truth of things and how complacency can be just as bas as persecution.
I also enjoyed how the played with the Fenris lore, making Andy and Lauren related to Andrea and Andreas was a great touch and also helped them on their journey. Family and our past played a big role on the show, but how do we accept our past when there is a lot of pain and death involved.
Something Lorna and Marco could understand. Complicated families also played a role for them, both their past and future family was important and a sorrow. Lorna the daughter of Magneto, struggling with her bipolar condition and being the daughter of Magneto and Marco with his connections to the cartel and having been thrown out of his home when he was a young man. They found love and had a daughter but their decisions drove them apart for a time but they never stopped loving one another.
Blink too had a complicated past, having grown up in foster homes her mutation made life especially difficult for her as she was unable to blend in and faced a lot of persecution. Eventually she found a home and a family with the Underground.
Even John was well written. Chosen by the X-Men, burdened with the responsibility of leading the Underground he faced many defeats and personal losses but kept on going for his people.
Even Jace offered a unique perspective. While a villain he was shaped by his own personal tragedies and the decisions he made although came from a place of good led him further and further down a dark path. Love him or hate him Jace offered a good balance in comparison to the mutant characters.
The Gifted took the human and mutant conflict and took it to the next level, truly showing how terrible bigotry and racism can make the world. We all know this terrible truth all to well and the Gifted had many parallels with real life events. We truly saw a side of this conflict not often seen in the movies. The conflict was bad it was much worse on the Gifted and every episode had a sense of underlying fear of being hunted and captured or worse killed. It was easy to see why some characters were forced to make some difficult decisions in order to survive.
The Gifted was a wonderful show and I am saddened to hear of its cancellation. I am especially saddened to see it end on a cliffhanger and wish we could get one more season to wrap things up. In the days that come maybe we can get some good news and see the ending this wonderful show deserves.

If you watched the ending of season 2, we saw that Marcos shot and took down both Phoebe and Sophie, and left Esme so that she could join the underground.

Beware of spoilers if you haven't seen the season 2 finale.
So with Reeva and Reed dead the Underground has a lost a seriously dangerous and cunning enemy and a deer father and friend. Loved how Reed went out and Reeva was a wonderful antagonist. With her gone and no longer stirring the pot things might get better though I am sure there will still be repercussions from her actions. And with Reed I am sure we will see his family struggle and deal with their grief over his death.
Esme seems to have turned a new leaf, with her help they might be able to expose more of Reeva's actions to the world to hopefully repair some of the damage she caused. Also her dynamic with the Underground and how much they will trust her.
Erg mentioned new mutant groups are forming and I am sure we will see some of them being a problem next season. Hopefully the Underground can get some allies.
After getting beaten by Thunderbird and finding out the Purifiers role as pawns by Reeva will he remain on his path or will he find a new role in his life?
And last but not least Blink! Not only is she alive and sporting some new threads she also seems to be using her javelins she used in the Days of Future Past and the comics. When the portal opens up it seems to lead to some kind of fiery wasteland. Given her new look, her sudden power development and the location I am wondering if they are going to start modelling her after her Exiles comic version.
To those of you not familiar Blink's Age of Apocalypse version would join a team of reality hopping heroes called the Exiles. She had a device that tied into her power and allowed her and the team to jump from dimension to dimension. So maybe they are tweeking her powers allowing Blink to do this and when she fell in her portal it sent her to a dimension where humans and mutants are in an all out war or maybe even the future.
What do you guys think? What do you think we will see in season 3?
Who else is happy too see blink alive and Esme has joined the underground
Will the gifted have another season? or is it getting cancelled.
title is self explanatory
What do you think will be the possible Season 2 Finale?
So if you could be in this should what would your name and superpower be. Also which side would you be on. My name would be Dakari Superhero name would be Metal. And my power would be the power to manipulate metal. And I would be on the good side duh lol
Despite what the Hellfire Club intended I don't think freeing all those mutants is going to turn out to be a good thing. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying all the mutants deserved to be there or are bad. But not every mutant is going to be nice or peaceful. Look at Rebecca, she had issues even before she was locked up. And even if the good mutants were locked up who knows what their time in confinement has done to their mentality. So even if they beat the Club I do not doubt more bad guys are going to show up to cause problems.
(Preferably with English Subs so I can actually understand what they're talking about)
So as we have seen a few times some mutant powers can affect others.
With Lorna and Marcos their powers can cause an effect similar to the aurora borealis.
Lauren and Andy can combine their powers for the Fenris ability.
And as we have recently seen Clarice seems to be negatively affected by Twists powers, causing her to feel ill even when she is in an area where Twist used her power.
I like how they explore how some mutant gifts can affect one another. I hope we can see more like this in future episodes.
Something that always gets me worried and confused is when this Wiki tries to decipher which Frost Sister is which. To me, I feel like the community does a great job trying to set a role for who is who but to me, I feel like some of the information is wrong when trying to figure out which Frost Sister is which. To me, I separate the sisters by their original personality from the comics:
Sophie is the sweet talker one. She's the one who is kind to others and her sisters and usually wants to avoid conflict. She's also always on the right side of Esme
Phoebe is the mean girl. She's the smart talker and always like to stir up 'drama', so to speak. She's pretty straightforward which is usually upsetting to those around her. She's also always on the left side of Esme.
Esme is the manipulative one, especially when it comes to her telepathy. She's usually the one in the middle.
All of these personality traits are shown very well by Skylar Samuels, though, others find it difficult trying to figure out which sister she's playing, especially when it comes to when there's just two of them.
My question is how do you yourself figure which sister is which? I just want to know how you know who is who when it comes to the Frost Sisters, just in case I'm somehow wrong.
Who else thinks Esme is going to turn against hellfire club and her sisters ?
hey just wanted too see some peoples opinions on the powers of the show doesn't have to be a main character can be a side character or a character we only see once
Since lauren powers are based on molecular structure does that mean she can develop them further like molecular combustion and other molecular based powers or is she only limited to making shields ?
Will anybody buy the Season 1 of the Gifted? Personaly, I can not. I mean I can not handle watching Dreamer being alive and killed. Which should not discouraged the users who wants to own the show on a DVD / Blu Ray because the show is great.
