Sneak Peek

Promo 2 & 3


We learn in the pilot that the two Strucker children are both mutants. Lauren's had her powers for years, while Andy is discovering his for the first time, which is the big thrust behind why the family is on the run. Are you leaving the exact nature of Andy's powers purposely vague at this point?

It's definitely part of the mystery. In my own thinking about powers and stuff, and the way we geek out when we're reading comics and we think about what it would be like to have powers... one of the things that you see in the pilot is, what does it feel like? Nobody ever talks about the powers. Does it hurt? I guess they talk about it with Wolverine in [the first X-Men movie], when he says it hurts every time, but that's really the only time they address that question. Is it fun? The other thing I thought about is when your powers manifest, they don't come with a label. It's not like somebody pops up and says, "Hey! You can do this!" When we think about powers on the show, what's the organic relationship between this person as a living, breathing human being, and their power? The idea is that what your power is and what you can do is influenced by who you are as a character.


After exerting her powers beyond their limits, Blink (Jamie Chung, "Big Hero 6," "The Hangover Part II") goes into a state of shock, forcing Caitlin (Amy Acker, "Person of Interest") and Eclipse (Sean Teale, "Survivor") to go on a mission to find a special serum that will help her to recover. Meanwhile, Reed (Stephen Moyer, "True Blood," SHOTS FIRED) faces some difficult choices when it comes to helping his family, and Polaris (Emma Dumont, "Bunheads," "Aquarius") runs into some trouble in the all-new "rX" episode of THE GIFTED airing Monday, Oct. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
