Pep talk from big sister Lorna
Sometimes coffee is a must but when Lorna sees Andy’s cup just over filling, she rushes into save him.
Joking that she should be the tired one, she asks what’s wrong. He says nothing and assures her he’s ready for the field test Reeva has set up.
During his test Andy sees flashes of Lauren falling and instead of breaking the last wall he runs into it.
Reeva asks if something is bothering and Andy just said he was fine. He has a lot of his dad in him.
Reeva is cautious
Worried Andy might be betraying them she sends Fade to follow him. Fade catches Andy buying a cell phone and then trying to call his sister.
Andy calls the clinic and asks for Lauren but his dad picks up instead. He sits on the line listening to his dad ask whose calling and then hangs up.
Fade lets Reeva know about this.
Big sister Lorna gives some advice
Andy goes to talk to Lorna who tells him that whatever’s wrong he has to be careful, that Reeva will kill him if she senses disloyalty.
Upon telling Lorna that he is homesick, we see Lorna look homesick for Marcos.
Like all wonderful moments, Dawn starts crying for food and Lorna has to cut their conversation short.
Leaving, Andy had the look of a child who isn’t getting the attention he needs. He once again is being left out for everyone else.
Once again Andy sees Lauren and crashes into the last wall.
Reeva asks the girls what’s wrong with him and they say he’s missing his sister.
Esme stepping up
After Reeva says she will access the situation and he will have to die if she doesn’t get what she wants, Esme steps up.
Looking sick, Esme says he’s only fifteen. Reeva gets right up in her face and says the she doesn’t like it but it has to be done for the future.
Esme having a backbone is great to see. She obviously sees things a little clearer than her sisters.
We have seen Andy break walls and phones and now a ball in just one episode.
After smashing the ball, Reeva comes in and asks him if anything is wrong. He says it’s just a bad day.
Reeva then tells him a story about her friend that got killed by the purifiers (people who hate mutants) because she was focused on a fight they had and her powers didn’t work.
When he didn’t answer she headed to the door and was about to do her cry of death when he stands up.
Andy opens up
I think this is the moment where we see that Andy is looking for someone to believe in him.
He tells her about the call and the dream. He says that he will just try to forget about his sister but..
Is told by Reeva to hold on to that feeling of wanting his sister. She tells him the new world their going to build is for her as well.
She then hugs Andy and he hugs her back. He found the one person that would be there for him as well as others.
Third times the charm
This time our boy got through all the solid walls and even got a standing ovation from Reeva.
In another part of the building
Lorna is laying in bed when she sees a green light. Smiling, she stands up and while telling dawn that daddy’s saying hello heads to the crib.
When reaching down to pick up Dawn, she feels that she’s really hot and picking her up the episode ends with her screaming for help.
I’m guessing the reunion of Lorna and Marcos as seen in the previews isn’t going to be what we all want.
Back in Atlanta
Detective Jace Turner
Is finally moving on with his life. But when he reads about the power outages he starts going down the dark road of wanting revenge again.
Through his wife we learn he has all the mutant underground files in their attic. She wants him to move on. He promises he will.
A drink with a friend
Ah all the lies we tell. Jace met up with one of his old cop buddies to tell him he thinks the black out was caused by mutants.
Everyone thinks it was a lightning storm that knocked out a power box because that’s what Reeva’s political friends made sure was the story.
Back to the drink
His friend then tells him to stop chasing conspiracy theories. He also let Jace know that if he kept chasing the past he was going to loose what he had now.
Paula comes home
After a very long day at work and finds Jace throwing away the files.
When she asks him if he is sure, Jace replies that he has to let go of the past to keep and make a future.
Paula is so happy to hear this and the two hug tightly.
I really hope, as much as the character is interesting, they allow Jace his happy ending and let his story end here.
But there’s more to tell…
As seen in the preview…
Marcos is needed to save Dawn and when he is shown being told to leave, he doesn’t leave quietly.
I could hope that Marcos and Lorna will reconnect but we all know that wouldn’t make for great television, at-least not now.
The Gifted airs on Tuesdays at 8/7c. on Fox.
