The Gifted has a dilemma. You see, one of the stars is Lorna (Emma Dumont), aka Polaris, a mutant with a pretty serious bombshell in her past. Her dad? It's Magneto. Only, uh, The Gifted can't talk about it.

This year, we were glued to our TVs and/or whatever device was streaming our scifi and fantasy favourites. It was tough narrowing down a top 10 - and you may be surprised by what's missing. The bottom five took a little less time to assemble, but still, this wasn't easy either. Here are the shows we loved and loathed most this year
Tom Hardy writhes in new behind-the-scenes looks at Venom. Mark Millar talks up the chance of a Man of Steel sequel. Gaze into the eyes of Wakanda's king in new Black Panther art. Plus, new pictures from Tomb Raider and the return of The X-Files, and behind-the-scenes on Peter Capaldi's final days on Doctor Who. To me, my spoilers!
The Gifted's ability to shy away from the melodrama and bombast of other live-action comic book adaptations in favour of a more grounded, realistic dystopia is a big part of what's made it so strong, if a bit narratively staid. In its mid-season finale, though, The Gifted finally decided to up the ante with a major death - and the introduction of three classic X-Men villains, too.
Video: Even though The Gifted's mutants aren't trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, they are living in a dystopian world where systemic racism from within the government poses a very real risk to their lives. That's the underlying message of a new ad for the show that focuses on a high school for mutant teens.
More Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage teases Porg delights. Gambit suffers another setback. There are new rumours about Iron Fist's next big bad. Emma Dumont hints at some big changes ahead for Polaris on The Gifted. Plus new looks at the midseason finales of Supergirl and Arrow, and what's to come on Gotham. Spoilers!

There's forking good news for The Good Place. Plus, new footage from the big CW/DC crossover, and Terry Gilliam talks The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. To me, my spoilers!
Over the past few weeks, The Gifted has done an excellent job juggling the various storylines that tie its sprawling ensemble cast of characters together while giving nearly all of them the time and space to grow. As its first season begins to draw to a close, though, it's obvious that The Gifted's writers took a hard look at where everyone is right now and realised that the Struckers - the mutants the show's ostensibly supposed to be about - aren't exactly all that interesting.
The next Terminator gets yet another writer. Get a look at new images from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Star Trek: Discovery co-showrunner Aaron Harberts discusses when the show will start reconciling itself with the classic Trek timeline. Plus, more Gifted casting, and what's to come on Arrow. Spoilers!
As we've watched the Mutant Underground and Sentinel Services try to outsmart one another this season, The Gifted has given both sides a chance to flex their muscles and use their respective power against one another. This week's episode "eXtreme measures" smartly switches things up by having both sides turn their focus (and power) inward in ways that both help and harm them.
