The season finale of Fox’s THE GIFTED was a controversial one, as characters from the Mutant Underground made decisions that will affect everything moving forward into season two. We’ll have to wait until the Fall to see what comes next. Until then, here’s what some of the fans are saying about the epic episode.
SPOILER WARNING FOR THOSE WHO’VE YET TO WATCH IT.
Caught the season finale for @TheGiftedonFOX and was at the edge of my seat from beginning to end. This series deserves to be on everyone's Top list of comic book shows. Solid performances, engaging action, and captivating storytelling all around.

Well, The 1st season of the #TheGifted was impressive. Last night's Season Finale was Mind Blowing.
P.S. I LOVE the Frost sisters.

I love so much the relationship between John and Clariece. #TheGifted is so amazing in so way shows how the world hates the different peopple and how they have to live because of that. @Blair_Redford @seanjteale @EmmaDumont and @jamiechung1 are the bests, thans for all

#TheGifted rose 0.3 and closed the first season with a 1.0. Nice rise and well deserved. That's the reason the show should move to 8/7c. Listen to me @FOXTV. This is the best for the show, I'm sure of it. What an amazing show. Amazing cast. Can't wait for more. @TheGiftedonFOX

For a guy who used to work for a drug cartel this guy sure likes to think he’s the moral authority on everything. #thegifted

The season finale of #TheGifted was good, super predictable, but good. I think the split will make for a great second season.

UGH. Andy is such a teenager and I hate him and his angsty attitude #TheGifted

I am loving the Marcos/Caitlin relationship – reflects almost a Mother/son bond that he never had – will be excited to see that develop now that she’s lost Andy and Marcos lost Lorna #TheGifted

Damn I just caught up with @TheGiftedonFOX finale. 👀@EmmaDumont & @SkylerSamuels are bringing the heat this season 🔥 I have no idea how they will top this Season, but I'm expecting big things from Season 2. 👏

#thegifted season finale! this show just might do a better job than anything I’ve ever watched of capturing the mix of drama, action, diversity, and group dynamics that defined old-school X-Men comics

I want to take the entire team behind #TheGifted to dinner and thank them for delivering a relevant, dark, shocking, emotional and utterly brilliant first season. Bravo.

im sorry to say this but im so happy #TheGifted season 1 is finally over. damn that's sooo basic – and boring most of the time 🙁

Honestly, I'd probably join Lorna, Andy, and Esme. Enough of that hiding in fear shit! Kick some ass!!! #TheGifted

I want to reiterate that The Gifted does X-Men as a topical social metaphor better than any of the live-action depictions before it. Can't wait for season 2! #TheGifted

The lines are drawn.
The new Hellfire Club.
Rogue Agent Turner.
And I'm betting on a revamped Hound program.
Season 2 is gonna SLAY.#TheGifted
