Wolverine and the X-Men is finding a much needed sense of focus in the final leg of its first season, finally pulling together its many plot threads in a purposeful manner. Granted, the latest episode, "Rover," only advances the series' core plotline in so much as it has certain characters relay important information to others, but it still manages to nudge the story forward towards its long-awaited climax. If one giant criticism still pertains to this series, it's that it's still in love with subplots, and has no problem pulling one out of left field precisely when it should be making sense of its countless other threads.
The latest episode focuses on Professor X and his band of mutant fugitives in the post-apocalyptic future as they continue their quest to provide Wolverine information about the possible causes of the world-wide cataclysm. Their latest mission - to unearth a vital clue from the remains of Master Mold's first body - is spurred on by Cyclops' revelation from last episode: Jean Grey's transformation into the Phoenix was responsible for the attack that devastated the X-Men and landed Xavier in a coma. To that, Professor X adds another important detail: Jean might also be directly responsible for the apocalypse.
