The final scene of the episode saw a guilty Bolivar Trask running away from a mysterious figure and pleading to stop taunting him.

The mysterious figure turns out to be Mister Sinister, the mastermind behind the attack on Genosha. He previously appeared in the third episode earlier this season.

It was revealed that Sinister manipulated Trask to activate the Master Mold that led to the attack. He also said that it was just the "beginning of a prologue" of his bigger plan. This sets him up as the big baddie of the first season.

Some fans have speculated that Cassandra Nova might be behind the attack given that she was the culprit in the source material. However, as it turns out, it was the villain that we already met in an earlier episode.

It is curious to see how it all unfolds since it is pretty clear that Mister Sinister is brewing a dangerous and deadly plan against the X-Men in the upcoming episodes.

New episodes of X-Men '97 premiere every Wednesday on Disney+.
