I'd also like a human who isn't related to a mutant to be a sympathizer.

I did snort when Eclipse called Vange the "Lizard of Oz". I think somebody said last season that Sentinel Services guy will end up being X-Cutioner, and I agree with that. Something that bothers me this season is that Esme seems to be the Cuckoo who has the most problem with what they're doing. If they're all identical anyway, don't reverse their personalities like that. Sophie was a true hero.

Sophie was also imprisoned for the vast chunk of last season. Esme’s the one who hasn’t been embittered by prison and has been out in the world; she’s actively seen the Struckers side with Mutants and trying to protect the underground, whereas the other two have just seen humanity imprisoning and torturing Mutants. It makes more sense that Esme’s the sister that’s wavering.

This episode felt a little slower due to no real fight scenes but actually, we see a lot.

-Marcos’ back Story with his father and how it’s the total opposite of his own situation with Dawn.
-The Morlocks and their “M” brand as well as the pitch to Clarice to join them.
-Everyone knows Reed is a mutant now
-Sentinel Service’s man just gets more and more intense
-Reeva subtly manipulating Andy to become visibly active against his former allies. Also, her power seems to be very ill-defined, and that annoys me somewhat.

Was that Morlock supposed to be Bishop? Did they ever say his name?

The leader of the Morlocks? That was Erg.

These Morlocks were underwhelming. They cut M's into their own faces?
I guess the green goo Moorlock is Membrain?

I guess it's the Gifted version of Masque deliberately messing with people's appearance to make it clear they are Morlocks like s/he did to Kitty and Katie Power (and maybe to Calisto but I was never sure if she was originally pretty or that was just a result of the Siege Perilous).

Was that female Morlock with the conspicuous staff supposed to be who I think it was?

This most recent episode really diminished my esteem for the Mutant Underground in comparison to The Inner Circle, and it was already hard for me to think of them as "good guys and bad guys" to begin with. In this episode, the mutant underground put a lot of their PERSONAL agendas first and did a lot of morally reprehensible sh*t in the name of them. At least the Hellfire Club was doing bad things for a greater cause.

Good episode, but, yikes.

I just can’t believe the Purifiers are being used so close to how they actually are...just never thought I’d see them on tv/film.

Thunderbird and Blink are quickly becoming the only characters I really care about. I like the Cuckoos too, but as villains, I'm not really sympathetic to them.

Who was the mutant the mutant at the end? I want to say Phantazia or Dragoness.

Looking at the trailer? I don’t think it’s either of them. If this is a total random mutant or new character, i’ll Be beyond annoyed
