The War (And The Madness) Continues In A Preview Of Next Week’s Legion
by Erik Amaya
FX’s Legion is head-trip even when it’s being fairly linear — like this week’s season premiere — but that stable footing can only last for so long before the Shadow King (Navid Negahban and Aubrey Plaza) decides to make his next move. And as seen in this preview of next week’s episode, the ex-Summerland group do not have long to decipher the new mystery buried in David’s (Dan Stevens) mind.
But is it possible the Summerland team also traveled through time to steal David away from the complex last year? That certainly seems the case from the footage compiled below:
On a week-to-week basis, this show is not the easiest to parse. It requires so much of the subsequent plot developments and dance numbers. Nonetheless, it is a compelling take on the X-Men and one I’m always excited to come back to; even if the tone is oppressive and maddening sometimes. That said, we’ll keep trying to unravel the mysteries until the final chapter of the season airs.
Legion airs Tuesdays on FX.
