Tonight’s Legion was the best yet, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t get even better. Next week’s episode certainly looks odd. The synopsis for the episode wouldn’t be too obvious outside of the context of Chapter 5’s ending, but it’s clear that the “where” is referring to the hospital that we were at in the series premiere. Here’s hoping Lenny isn’t as crazy as she was before. I don’t think she would do the patients much good if so.
David goes back to where it all started.
We are past the half-way point in Legion now, and man has it been an amazing ride. It’s getting close to the finale at this point, but if you want to know a little bit about the great new series from FX, read the in-depth synopsis 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
