Below are screenshots and videos for tonight’s episode of The Gifted 2.08 titled, “the dreaM.” And, we also have the promo for the next episode.
We saw tonight, how Reed (Stephen Moyer) is still struggling with his powers in the latest episode 8 of The Gifted, titled “the dreaM.” Clarice thinks the Morlocks would be the safest place for him, however, Caitlin points out as his human wife this isn’t an option. Reed continues burning holes throughout the bedroom and it’s getting worse. So, the Strucker’s storyline in this episode centers on trying to find Reed’s Dad’s former assistant. They hope that the assistant can get help to suppress his out of control mutant power. They find her (Madeline) running a genetics department at the Opposite State University. This just happens to be the only college where civil unrest and massive genetic discrimination actually calms things down.
I have to say that although Madeline was extremely nice to Reed, Caitlyn and Lauren, somehow I didn’t believe she was on the up and up.
And, we agree with Den of Geek when they say that maybe this place isn’t so safe:
- The fact that everyone’s just chilling playing frisbee while the world catches fire from the Inner Circle attack on Creed Financial;
- the shirt the med tech is wearing (“Never Trust an Atom, They Make Up Everything” was chosen expressly because of the Children of the Atom, I promise you);
- the happy mutants hanging around the lab.
- The big reveal came through, that Dr. Riesman’s brother founded the Purifiers. She hates him but she also is going to use Strucker blood to make a Mutant Cure. It felt like a letdown.
