Legion renewed for season 3!!!!

Also, the Minotaur has to be something Melanie related, I think the only scene with the minotaur and no Melanie was in the children's classroom but I don't remember what episode that was

Soooo a shit ton happened that episode, 2 quick little things that stood out early to me

We have crazy hair David with pregnant Lenny surrounded by bones and holding an orb. This is Legion the world killer

Then Syd goes down the rabbit hole(with a giant bath drain wtf), honestly surprised there wasn't floating chair and shit but it was 100% the hole from Alice in Wonderland. Hook went through her right hand but she is missing her left in the future

I mean ya? This is all in David's head very likely, just trying to figure out if it's everything or just some of the story, he is an untrustworthy narrator
Spoiler!


This "face" appears in every episode

Not sure what to make of this latest episode other than I really don’t understand what version of insanity the cast is in.

Farouk’s or David’s or both.

Both. Everyone is in David's mind and Farouk is still fucking with it

Farouk has gotten David to believe that his body still exists which in turn made David give Farouk a body(more power)

Someone on reddit broke down all the Jon Hamm videos along with the intercom announcements and he should either be a writer or he figured it all out

https://www.reddit.com/r/LegionFX/co...vid_is_insane/

actually I don't think this was it, I shall find it, anyways rewatch the videos

I can't find it but ya it seems the key to a lot of this season is all in the Jon Hamm narration

Quote:
There is a maze in the desert carved from sand and rock. A vast labyrinth of pathways and corridors a hundred miles long, a thousand miles wide, full of twists and dead ends. Picture it... a puzzle. You walk, and at the end of this maze is a prize just waiting to be discovered. All you have to do is find your way through. Can you see the maze? Its walls and floors, its twists and turns? Good, because the maze you've created in your mind is itself the maze. There is no desert, no rock or sand. There is only the idea of it. But it's an idea that will come to dominate your every waking and sleeping moment. You're inside the maze now. You cannot escape. Welcome to madness.

God damn, that last like 30 minutes was terrifying and heartbreaking, David is just insanely powerful and basically Doctor Manhattan

but also crazy

Really not a fan of using rape as a plot device the way they did. That's a really, really bad idea.

I think they did a great job of showing that David thought he was somehow going to make Syd love him again with this telepathic rape. David has been rationalizing his evil deeds over and over and this time it was pure selfishness

Obviously, rape in any scenario is fucking brutal to watch on tv though

Farouk somehow saw it coming and told David that Syd would see him as the same monster that David saw him as. Once he was trapped in the bubble and saw Syd's disgust it all finally hit him

Sidenote: I loved that they gave Farouk a sort of crown, everyone at D3 is obviously under his control but David is in no way the hero

They basically have pushed David to the dark side with their actions. Dude is insane and just wants to be loved and they don’t understand that is the only thing that will likely contain him.

The only rational actor is Farouk. I’d argue that David is the most rational after him. These people are small and petty.

David kills people that threaten his life. David keeps secrets like the rest of them. Syd tried to murder him and act like she would be a hero for doing so and people begrudge him for wanting to erase that evil from his girlfriend’s mind. In his head that erasure and then having sex with her are two decoupled discrete acts.

I think it’s all a matter of perspective on some of this as the all seeing eyes aren’t totally correct. They are the unimaginative autocrats and he is the insane but earnest victim.

The show kinda seems like a parable On then panopticon and how it doesn’t capture the real truth, just a tiny slice that has been viewed through a skewed prism.

Also, the rape seems tied back to Syd’s rape not rape entrapment of her mom’s lover. I’m confused as hell and I agree with Brodie that rape is a bad plot device and it being a recurring them with syd is disappointing.

I pretty much feel the same way about the episode you all did. I didnt hate the episode entirely. I will say I thought the first 5 minutes of the episode was pretty badass. And I actually think Dan Stevens did pretty good singing Behind Blue Eyes. lol

Apparently, they skipped Chapter 11

I assume this is where Farouk turned everyone

I don’t remember writing that summary but I guess I did.

Anyways, I enjoyed the first episode here and I find it interesting what a super overpowered duo can come up with.

My theory atm is Switch is Fukyama's daughter and that he is the real big bad


Anyone think this light and the breach weapon look similar?

Fukuyama is definitely the bad guy.

But I donít know what is supposed to be real and what is just a battle inside Davidís mind.
