One of the gladiators, but that's it. And I'm shocked, SHOCKED, that the descendants of New World refugees undermining the institutions of a "free" European settler society to set up a despotic regime gets dropped and never mentioned again.The New Rome thing never made any sense to me. I didn't know that Selene was originally supposed to be of Incan descent - I had actually forgotten that the Inca were a faction within the time-lost South American Rome. Do we see any dark-skinned New Romans?
Well, there was a plane crash, and Madelyne was the only survivor; that's gone over in the scene she has with Mastermind. I suppose it's possible he was messing with Scott's perceptions when he looked into the time of the crash and saw it happened at the moment of Jean's death, depending on how closely he kept an eye on him before he came to Japan for the wedding. If that were the case it would've been established explicitly, I think.It does seem like it's possible that all of the strangeness surrounding Madelyne was the work of Mastermind, since IIRC none of the claims of the plane crash and whatnot were ever independently verified. Though when she comes back into the picture those stories will be taken at face value, IIRC.
