Yesterday’s Television Critics Association press conference saw a lot of news about the new mutant television show. In addition to introducing a new character as well as addressing if the x-men would appear the show also hinted at upcoming drama for their characters and how the second episode would focus primarily on the mutant resistance instead of the Strucker family. The second episode will be titled “A New World” and focus primarily on Blink, Polaris, and the characters Dreamer and Thunderbird – as well as the difficult dynamics of living and loving on the run from sentinel services and the law.

Is there time for a romantic connection while on the run? Will this have drastic consequences? This indirectly implies that there might be more than one character who Thunderbird has a connection with, especially since the trailer seems to hint that Polaris might have some feelings for him. Will we see that come to fruition and could it affect the Strucker Family’s escape? What do you think? As always sound off and share your thoughts about this development and the “New World” for our protagonists in the comments below.
Reed and Caitlin are two normal suburban parents whose lives get thrown into chaos when they discover that their children possess mutant powers in THE GIFTED.
Teens Lauren and Andy are involved in an incident at their high school which reveals their mutual powers to the world, forcing their parents to flee their old lives in order to protect their children. The Strucker family goes on the run from the government agency the Sentinel Services, which includes Agent Jace Turner, who is determined to protect the rest of the population from mutants. And things are made even more complicated by the fact that Reed is a prosecutor in the district attorney’s office tasked with going after mutants, which is why his children hid their powers from him for as long as possible.
But with the family on the run, their only hope comes in the form of an underground network that helps mutants in trouble — and it’s full of mutants dealing with their own issues.
The Gifted premieres October 2nd on Fox.
