Something horrible happened to mutantkind in ‘The Gifted’ and that event is known as 7/15. The Fox hit about what happened to mutants in a world where the X-Men and Brotherhood of Evil Mutants appear to have disappeared has been teased constantly throughout the first season, and we’re finally going to learn what happened. Showrunner Matt Nix hasn’t clarified that we’ll find out exactly what happened but that details from the event will be revealed!
How much will be explained is still unknown as Nix teases:
“I would definitely like to explore 7/15 in more detail. What exactly happened there is certainly one of the central questions of the series.”
This event is the epicenter of what is going on in the series. While we’ve seen a massive uptick in “anti-mutant hysteria” on the show there is more to it:
“It’s a bigger deal than that linked as it is to the disappearance of the X-Men and the Brotherhood, the creation of the Mutant Underground and the attempted rebuilding of the Hellfire Club…. It’s kind of at the center of everything we’re doing.”
Nix did tease that the full details couldn’t be explained away in a single episode either so expect them to slowly be revealed throughout the season. With how large of a topic it is, you can bet that it’ll not only have a considerable arc devoted to it but likely dive right into a finale as well.
What do you think the 7/15 event was? Will we know the full truth of it all before the second season comes to a close? Could all of the X-Men and Brotherhood of Evil Mutants still be brought back into the series? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
