So. Assuming that the show will continue to air long enough to actually answer any of the mysteries unveiled, I think I’ll make some predictions (spoilers ahead):
- First, the reason for the sudden appearance of these powers: a micro-organism engineered by the dead (or is he?) geneticist for the express purpose of unleashing our hidden powers.
- Second. Why is the cheerleader living with scary knows-more-than-he’s-saying guy? Because he acquired some of the micro-organism early on and infected her with it, after kidnapping her from her natural parents when she was a baby. He hopes to eventually control all of the ‘heroes’ for the good of mankind.
- Third, I predict that the eclipse has nothing to do with the powers, except to perhaps act as a trigger for releasing the micro organism from some sort of mechanical containment.
- Finaly, I predict that crazy mirror girl will spend some time on the dark side of the force before coming to grips with her abilities and working for the good of mankind.
