Things are actually finally coming together a bit. Which is good because we only have two episodes left after this one. Legion has been renewed for a second season however, which is good news, I suppose, though I kind of wonder where they could really go next. This entire season seems to be all about, I dunno, freeing, saving David from his demons, I suppose.
And what a demon. Demons? That’s not super clear. Aubrey Plaza as Lenny though was really great this episode. There was also a bit of a brief glimpse that she is the fat ugly guy haunting David’s mind as well. More specifically, being a parasite on David’s mind. It’s still not clear on some of the other glimpses or characters. Who is The Worlds Angriest Boy in the World who keeps popping up. Is The Eye real and how does he fit into all of this? Who is the diver, really, and why is Cary wearing his suit at the end?
Speaking of Cary, and Kerry, they got quite a bit of real development this round as well. Cary went off and met with the mysterious diver and poor Kerry is being stalked by The Eye around the asylum. Then there is Melanie, who didn’t do a lot in this episode but seems to have discovered the truth by breaking out tot he real world, though the question is, how can she save them from being shot? I half expected her to just stand there and take the bullets thus saving David and Syd.
I feel like a broken record but I’m still not entirely convinced anything is real. It’s essentially a battle between the good personalities of David’s mind and the evil ones, for control of the whole.
Also Lenny brought up David’s real dad again, though no reveal on who it was. She did mentions something about “Playing the saint while giving up his son,” which really kind of does imply a particular character from the larger X-men universe.
