The 20th Century Fox Television has provided Blackfilm.com with an exclusive clip featuring Grace Byers to Episode 14 of The Gifted from Season 2, airing on February 12 from 8pm – 9pm on Fox.
Season Two picks up six months later, with the Mutant Underground at their new HQ in Washington D.C., stuck in the middle of an increasingly polarized nation, as both anti-mutant sentiment and the mutant rights movement are on the rise. The X-Men believed that mutants and humans could live together in peace – now that dream hangs in the balance.
Byers plays REEVA PAYGE, a powerful and ruthless mutant who takes over as the leader of The Inner Circle and can emit sonic blasts that scramble minds.
In all-new “calaMity” episode of THE GIFTED, When one of the Inner Circle goes missing, Reeva intensifies security in their compound, but realizes that her plans may have already been exposed. Furious and paranoid, Reeva resorts to violence. Caitlin and Reed consider using the serum to restrict Lauren’s use of her powers, hoping it will help her as she wrestles with nightmares about the Inner Circle and her ancestors, but realize that she must make her own choices. And it’s the battle of two extreme ideologies when Morlocks and the Purifiers come face-to-face in battle.
