It surely involves Emma Frost's psychic tampering, a sort of equivalent of what she did with Jean Grey in the comics to make her the Dark Phoenix.
I'm looking forward to whatever event or chain of events leads up to that. It should be quite hard for Xavier to deal with given how close they are shown to be. Same for him in terms of the eventual path of Magneto. Hopefully there is still a lot of evidence of their deep friendship in this one. Don't want him turning into a full on villain straightaway.
