[ # ] The Gifted is proving to be a real gift!
October 9th, 2017 under Marvel Comics

You know how some action shows have amazing first episodes and then go down hill from there? Not The Gifted. Tonight’s episode at 9p on Fox is even better than the series premiere.

The episode picks up with the Mutants having gone through the portal to their new location and Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer) being stuck in the old one all by himself. While he has to deal with the police taking him away, The Mutants have to deal with Blink (Jamie Chung) suffering from the side effects of keeping the portal open for so long. She is passed out and going into shock, which is causing her power to malfunction and spontaneously open up portals. Exposing where the Mutants are hiding out to strangers in the outside world. Together they are trying to come up with a way to cure her and close the portals before they are found. Both are easier said than done.

Then there is Polaris (Emma Dumont) who is coming to grips with her new life in prison. We see how they keep her powers under control while she is in there. Making her weak to the normal people alongside her and they know it. Let’s just say they are not a fan of mutants in there.

While we see how prisoners feel about Mutants, we also get to learn how normal people outside of maximum security feel towards them and why our Mutants are enemy #1.

While the pilot explained their abilities, tonight’s show explains the life of a Mutant in our World. That and what happens when you overuse your ability. While the consequences might be bad for the latter, they are amazing for us. Like I said, this show does not disappoint and will quickly become one of your must watch shows of the week.
