So while the Jon Hamm lessons seem to now be at an end, we still seem to be at a point of set up of what is to come later in this season. All of this to prepare us for what we aren’t supposed to expect. But now I expect everything. And when you expect everything, is it a surprise anymore? Depends on how well this surprise is told.
Here’s a vague, slow, methodical, parallel universe episode involving many David’s in many branching timelines that is all brilliantly used as an allegory for grief. Also, it’s great, because of course it’s great.
“Apparently on Legion.” Is the first line of this episode.
This might be one of my favorite episodes.
The problem with being told that we can’t trust anything we see is that we can’t trust anything we see.
Reality is that which when you stop believing in it, it doesn’t go away.
Legion is a show where literally anything could happen, and it would be acceptable, but the brilliance of this show is that the anything that happens has a reason.
