In season 2, how many more Gotham guest stars will The Gifted grab?

Could Jayce Turner become X-Cutioner (since they haven't introduced Carl Denti)?

Matt Nix would like Season 2 to do more with the Morlocks and possibly include small elements from X-Factor Investigations. If the show goes for a third season it would be cool if it goes full-blown PAD X-Factor.

I could totally see Turner becoming X-Cutioner. And so many new easter eggs! Vange Whedon. Risman. Was that supposed to be Sunder and Ruckus? The credits listed the "hulking mutant"'s name as Mark. That's Sunder's (handbook) real name.

Was Inhumans an elaborate practical joke to make The Gifted look even better?

I'm just glad they didn't call her "Vange". That was the stupidest thing.

I'm counting any halfway done nod as a cameo at this point, given the way things are headed. So, if the big guy is Mark, then he's Sunder. Works for me. Add him to the list.

I really only thought about it after seeing the comment about wanting to use more Morlocks, and I went back and watched the credits to see if I saw anything. And the Ruckus thing was only because of the elongated jaw. I've liked the Nasty Boys since the 90s cartoon, and that was something he did that I've never seen anyone else do, even if they did seemingly change his race.

I can't tell if I love or hate this show. Everything about it is terrible--writing, acting, plot, directing--but I keep wanting to watch.

Has anyone else noticed how repetitive the plot is? It seems like every even numbered episode ends with them captured, and every odd numbered episode ends with a rescue.

Plot is something that's based on taste...and the writing is about par the course with the decades of network TV stuff...but how is the directing or acting so terrible? Particularly the directing...

Just throwing my two cents in, Andy's actor is not very good, and Polaris makes kind of ridiculous faces when she's concentrating hard on her powers, but I like everyone else's acting fine. The direction is also fine. I'd say plot or writing-wise my only complaint is they make the human villains a little too cartoonishly evil. Dr. Campbell, fine, whatever. But I feel like we should feel bad for the agent who lost his daughter, yet his actions make it virtually impossible. He's going to need a hell of a redemption arc in Season 2 to make him a worthwhile character. If I were the showrunners, I'd have him see video footage of Campbell using kids as human shields, and make him ally with Marco and Johnny's team.

Also, I was really hoping we'd get some backstory on what exactly happened to the X-Men by the end of this season, but we got Snoaked.

That would be one hell of a redemption arc. I think he may be going full-on bad guy. The only middle-ground humans are the Strucker wives now.

Next season needs costumes! As good as the special effects have been, everybody who’s not Goth Polaris look so generic.

Did they reveal the names of the triplets before the subtitles pointed out exactly who they were? I went a while between episodes and couldn't remember.

I think Esme was the only one called by name, but the other two were identified on Sage's computer screen (I think).

Season 2 trailer is out and looks awesome! Can't wait.

Any ideas who the guy with the hood is walking in at 1:54? For some reason I immediately thought "Forge!" but maybe i'm just projecting.

They certainly know how to cut a good trailer.

I wish there was a way to cut the parents out of the show. I just don't feel like they fit the flavor of the show anymore.

Not sure about the guy in the hood, but they feel very Morlock-y to me. So maybe it's Caliban or Erg or Healer.

Wow, Reeva Payge. They're really going for the most obscure Hellfire members aren't they. I guess they probably had to thread lightly because of the uncertainty of the Fox acquisition.

I don't mind the parents. I always liked seeing humans working with the X-men. If your intended goal is peaceful coexistence then you should practice what you preach. My only concern is whether they are given something worthwhile to do that doesn't feel too forced. Having the father be a depowered mutant (it seems like they're exploring that) and the mother their go-to medic keeps them sufficiently involved. Plus Amy Acker and Stephen Moyer's acting skills easily surpass most of their co-stars.

I still think Mama Strucker is a mutant.

Every mutant she interacts with for the first time or she’s around for a while keep saying things like “I didn’t know I could do that” or exceed previously established limits on their abilities. I think she’s a Fabian Cortez but doesn’t realise it.
