The Gifted: Will Polaris Set Aside Her Magneto Hate, Embrace Dad's Ideas?

How far does the mutant apple fall from the tree?

Fox’s The Gifted has been exploring that question as it relates to the Strucker kids, who possess the same, lethal-when-merged powers as their great-grandfather and his sister. But Lorna aka Polaris also boasts VIP DNA, as the daughter of iconic X-Men villain Magneto.

And as Season 1 winds down (the final three episodes begin Monday, Jan. 1 at 9/8c), Lorna will be prompted to reconcile her loathed lineage with the fact that she actually shares many of Magneto’s beliefs.

Born into being the operative words.

“Each episode we start with a flashback of a character’s history and the finale is hers, and her journey is really, really heartbreaking,” the actress previewed. “She kind of has to decide, ‘What’s the difference between something you’re supposed to be and something you believe in?’ She knows about this guy who may or may not be her father — I mean, he is, and she kind of hates Magneto. She hates what everyone says about him because everyone in the world she’s in said he was bad and evil — so she’s sort of like, ‘Gosh, I believe the same things as this man. Does that make me bad, or does this mean I’m a fighter?’”

As the multi-pronged “war” that the X-Men, before vanishing, warned the leaders of the mutant underground about takes shape, push will be on a collision course with shove and Polaris will have to decide just how staunchly she subscribes to Dad’s “homo-superior” beliefs and the X-treme measures that may need to be taken against those who wish mutants malice.

“We see her work through that in Episode 12 and 13 [the season finale], and in the end we find out what her decision is,” Dumont shared. “This is the phrase I like to use: ‘She pulls something out of thin air.’”
