She was seduced by a psychic named Emma Frost into seeing things that were not there and to give into murderous, darker impulses. Also like traditional X-Men stories, this episode is about embracing how individual differences are a gift, not a curse to be hidden in a closet.
That puts her rescue by Hopper at Dec. Close enough! Not really an easter egg, just cool casting. With the power out and the need to turn on both the power and open the locks, poor Bob is sent to his doom like a latter day Samuel L.
