Spoilers below for Legion:

Last week on FX’s Legion, David Haller (Dan Stevens) had two encounters he never expected to have. One was with the actual Shadow King, Farouk (Navid Negahban), and the other was with future Syd (Rachel Keller). The end result is that according to Syd he has to help Farouk find his body. This means finding the Monk who knows where the body is hidden. David is spending an awful lot of time inside Cary’s immersion tank bouncing back and forth through time and the Astral Plane. On this week’s Legion, the Monk finds himself inside Division 3 and poses a threat to everyone involved.

Spoilers below for Legion:

Legion burst back onto TV screens on Tuesday night with the same absurd surrealist approach that made it a fan favorite back in 2017. There is simply nothing off-limits on this show and it runs from the top down. Show creator Noah Hawley has reinvented genre TV with both this and Fargo (also on FX) and his team of actors, cinematographers, special effects people and musicians all work to create the single most unique 70+ minute experience for viewers each week. In the debut for its second season, Legion was laugh out loud funny, wonderfully irreverent, featured voiceover narration from an Emmy-nominated guest star, and of course, because it’s Legion, culminated with an epic dance sequence.

Spoilers below for Legion:

Tonight is bittersweet for fans of arguably the best new show of 2017 as FX’s Legion bids farewell to its incredible debut season. We’ve been a wild ride with David Haller (Dan Stevens), a man who we met in a mental institution with paranoid schizophrenia, who happens to be the world’s most powerful mutant. Last week, in one of the most amazing episodes of any show I’ve ever seen, David talked himself out of Lenny’s trap, while Syd (Rachel Keller) helped organize the team. It was revealed that Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) is really an evil mutant parasite called The Shadow King that latched onto David as a baby. David trapped Shadow King deep down in the recesses of his mind and right when you thought it safe to take a breath, Division 3 converged on Summerland, led by a scarred Interrogator (Hamish Linklater).

Legion
Episode 1.7 “Chapter 7”
Written by Jennifer Yale
Directed by Dennie Gordon
Created by Noah Hawley & Stan Lee
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart, Jemaine Clement
FX Network
Air date: March 22th, 2017

This is the penultimate episode of Legion’s first amazing season on FX and that honestly just makes me sad. Last week, we were knee deep in Lenny’s version of hell as she had David and all the Summerland gang locked inside David’s head in a version of the Clockworks mental hospital. In there, David (Dan Stevens) seemed content to be there, but girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keller) wanted out and this drew conflict with Lenny (Aubrey Plaza). Kerry (Amber Midthunder) was having separation anxiety from brother Cary (Bill Irwin) and was being stalked by the uber creepy Eye (Mackenzie Gray). Aubrey Plaza was just unbelievable, stealing every scene she’s in, including an unreal impromptu dance number straight out of a Bond opening sequence. And Dan Stevens shows his range like crazy going from wild powerful maniac in episode to somber mental patient who just wants to be in love. Having just watched Stevens dominate the screen as the Beast in Beauty and the Beast, I’m left wondering if there is anything the man cannot do…

Air date: March 15th, 2017

Fresh off the news that FX has already renewed the coolest and most original superhero property on television, Marvel’s Legion returns tonight after its most bonkers episode ever last week. And THAT is saying something. We finally got to see David (Dan Stevens) use his powers with reckless abandon and it was glorious, as he literally exploded his way through Division 3 soldiers in order to free sister Amy (Katie Aselton). It was from her he finally learned some real truth; he was adopted, he’s not crazy, and he may or may not have a mutant living inside his head… the Yellow Eyed Devil… or is it Lenny (Aubrey Plaza)? Lenny, who terrorized David and girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keller) in a wild and scary finale, which all led to the jaw dropping climax where everyone was casually sitting around a therapy circle, and LENNY was the shrink! I am not exaggerating when I say the closing moments of each of Legion’s episodes have left me floored. The show is awe inspiringly original, the visuals and sounds… so immersive. I look so forward to each week. Let’s get to it.

Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart
FX Network
Air date: March 8th, 2017

FX’s 2017 hot streak continues as their wholly original Marvel comics adaptation, Legion, returns tonight for episode 5. Last week we delved deeper into David Haller’s psyche and it is both fascinating and horrifying. David (Dan Stevens) has unknown power, and may be purposely misleading Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris) and Syd (Rachel Keller) from finding out the truth to his abilities and his past. When they are unable to access things in David’s mind, they seek out truth the old fashioned way, tracking down David’s ex and find out one crucial piece of information; Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) is actually Benny… a dude. Why is David openly hiding this? Is he openly hiding it? Could Lenny/Benny be the evil Yellow Eyed Devil that haunts David? District 3 is getting close, and they spring a trap for Syd, Ptonomy, and Kerry Loudermilk (Amber Midthunder), that sees Kerry (and by extension Cary Loudermilk) left injured, as David returned right in time.

Directed by Larysa Kondracki
Created by Noah Hawley & Stan Lee
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart
FX Network
Air date: March 1st, 2017

Legion has set a pretty high bar for only three episodes. Marvel’s new series on FX is daring, in that nothing about it feels like anything you’ve ever seen in a superhero show before. In fact, without a hint or random word (mutant) thrown in, you may not even realize you’re watching a show based on X-Men comics, created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. David Haller (Dan Stevens) is one of the most powerful mutants in the world, with still yet undefined and uncontrolled powers including telepathy, telekinesis, teleportation, etc. Living in Summerland, a Professor X-style school in the woods, Melanie Bird (Jean Smart) is trying to use David’s powers to help stop potential threats from a government organization out to stop them – Division 3. They have kidnapped David’s sister Amy (Katie Aselton), and are trying to lure him out. Meanwhile with the help of his girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keller) (who he cannot physically touch), and Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), they are digging in David’s head and exploring his memories for clues to how far his powers truly reach. And what’s with that blob-like yellow eyed man?!?!

Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart

Air date: February 22nd, 2017

Last week on FX’s newest great series Legion, David Haller (Dan Stevens) had “memory work” done to investigate his childhood and help remember where and when his powers started. He is beginning to settle into his new life at Summerland with his “hands off” girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keller), psychic “memory artist” Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris) and memories of his dead best friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza). He is still haunted by demons from his past, like the Devil with Yellow Eyes, and threats to his future, like the mysterious The Eye (Mackenzie Gray) who has his sister (Katie Aselton). Despite all the complexities of David’s world and the eccentric characters, the star of this series is the style and substance of the world created by Noah Hawley and director Michael Uppendahl. Legion does not at all feel like your typical Marvel product, or any other superhero show on television. It is a mind melting explosion of originality, one of the freshest feeling new shows of 2017 thus far.
