Looks like Mrs. Bird and the other mutants of Summerville have come to the realization that they might all be trapped inside David’s mind. Tonight’s episode dealt primarily with Sydney and friends discovering more about David’s past, and it was revealed that almost all of David’s memories are false implants that he put there himself to hide something. From the looks of things, David is not thrilled that his entire life may have been a lie. Check out the promo below for “Chapter 5” of FX’s Legion.
As ambiguous as ever, the synopsis reads:
David faces a new threat.
If you haven’t watched Legion yet, I encourage you to binge the first 4 episodes. They are all fantastic in different ways, and the series is unlike anything on television. Read the description of the show below:
Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 20’s and free once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of daily life: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Shannon (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.
Legion premieres every Wednesday on FX at 10pm. Keep checking Heroic Hollywood for reviews and any other news related to this Omega-level mutant.
