So, things are moving a long a bit. We get a little bit of background and insight to the supporting cast, since David is trapped in his mind still. What’s not clear, is if the others are quite free from his mind yet. I admit, I’m extrapolating a bit from what I’ve read about Legion in the comics, but the TV/ Movie stuff doesn’t always match that stuff.
It’s kind of a shame that this is separate from the MCU, since there are mentions of the Astraea plain, like Doctor Strange traverses. The idea of being trapped in the mind of David also isn’t all that different from what’s going on with The Framework over on Agents of SHIELD, at least in basic concept.
Anyway, Sydney, Kerry and Ptonomy all head out into the world to investigate David’s past. Including meeting with this old girlfriend and doctor. There’s still some glimpses in the world of things that may not be real, which suggests they are still in his mind. There is also the angle of David being Schizophrenic, and being multiple people, an angle from the comics, I’m not entirely sure that everyone involved here is not just David, or a projection of David’s. There’s a bit of a suggestion of this idea with Cary/Kerry, who apparently share a body, though Kerry can leave at times to take care of the dirty work, which we get to see a bit of when Division shows up to capture the little investigation crew.
Syd rescues them by swapping with The Eye, before David shows up to rescue them. Which goes a bit south because no one else knows that Syd and the Eye have swapped until it’s too late.
Generally, this episode was a much better change of pace from last week’s kind of snooze fest.
