the gift and the ghost

More "Gifted" movie question goodness!

Hello! Original movie reviewer here! I saw another question about the flick and whether or not Frank (Evans) loses custody of Mary (McKenna). 

BEWARE SPOILERS ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE. SPOILERS FOLLOW! 

Well, if you really, really, REALLY want to know…………………………..yes, he does lose custody, once it is revealed that he’s actually a ghost that Mary is seeing and that Frank is dead before the movie starts. Her “Gift” is really the ability to see ghosts. I didn’t see that plot twist coming……………..I kid, I kid! But no, he does not lose custody of Mary. The flick ends with Frank retaining custody, but trying to find a common balance with her abilities and being a little girl. It requires both of them to do a bit of growing up, maturing, and adapting.Very happy feel good, happy go lucky ending!

It gets REALLY weird though when Nick Fury shows up to recruit her for the Avengers though.    ;)

thank you for Your submission 👑

I found something that @sixpenceee would definitely appreciate. While vacationing in Ocean City this summer I found this extremely unsettling children’s book in a small gift shop/book store. It seems innocent at first inquiring where ghosts live and wanting to know where to find them. It soon starts to get darker as it describes every monster’s lair you need to pass in order to find the ghosts, accompanied by startling images that are sure to give your child nightmares for years. The creepiest part was the end, there was a blank page suggesting that the ghosts had all gone away, then a few more blank ones, then the last photo was the very last page in the book. You can see little images of ghosts following you through all the pages in the book suggesting that ghosts don’t live in one place but that they are everywhere and follow you. This is the creepiest book I’ve ever seen and I love it.
