Previously, on Disney Plus' X-Men ‘97, Storm regained her powers. She didn’t need someone else to help her. Storm faced her fears and insecurities and brought them back on her own. That was one of the grandest displays of power this writer has ever seen. But there was no time to enjoy having the abilities of a goddess again. She sees what happened to the mutants on Genosha and knows it’s time to rejoin her team.

Meanwhile, Charles Xavier was in space teaching lessons to the Shi’ar. In one way it was literal. Xavier used his telepathy to bring members of the Shi’ar royal family and council into a classroom in his mind. While there, Xavier calls the Shi'ar out of how they received and maintained their empire's dominance. Before he can finish his session, Xavier gets a psychic blast from Genosha. He experiences the death of the mutants there. Among them was Gambit. Now, it’s time for him to end his “star-crossed affair” with Lilandra and return to Earth and his X-Men.

As the season 1 finale of X-Men '97 approaches, all sights are set on episode 7 - the last episode before that three-part finale begins. Here's what you need to know.

The X-Men will look for answers in episode 7

The next episode (titled “Bright Eyes”) will showcase the X-Men finding Bolivar Trask. However, it’s not what it looks like. At the end of episode six, viewers see that Mr. Sinister is behind the mutant massacre on Genosha. Who knows, Apocalypse could be helping Sinister. He said, "we" when referring to the plan. So who else is in cahoots with the X-Men's long-serving antagonist?

Cyclops and the X-Men will learn that they were wrong about everything in this episode. This will lead to mutants having an even harder time than before. Among the difficulties will be being more hated and feared by humans. 

As the episode's official synopsis reads:

"Cyclops focuses the X-Men on finding Bolivar Trask. However, when the team locates the Sentinel inventor, they realize that they all have been played by a mastermind."

Is this mastermind a villain we have already met, or could it be someone else entirely? And what has been their purpose all along?

As we get closer and closer to the three-part finale of X-Men '97, X-fans have more and more questions about what is really going on.
