Reeve Payge puts her control on the Hellfire Club and Sentinel Services continues its' attacks on the suspected mutants. Meanwhile, Caitlin and Marcos struggle to find out where Andy and Lorna disappeared. The second season of the action and exciting TV series The Gifted.
But for some reason, this time, seeing it all reflected in a mutant fiction feels unsettling. The story The Gifted is capable of telling is so close to reality that it makes me not want the diluted, fictional version anymore.
The show immediately plants the seed that Lorna and Andy don't belong here, that they're not safe. Not truly. It's an easier story to tell, sure, one that has a built-in happy ending; it's just not a particularly nuanced one.
