I got creeped out about that too.

David is starting to realize what is happening, although not - I think - fast enough to save himself without help.

After watching this for the 2nd time, I noticed that he's nervously singing the tune while using his eyes to direct Syd toward the red room with the dog. That's why she goes over there and slowly closes it.

However, it seems to have almost total control of him most of the time, especially when his emotions are on overload.

I know I was a bit harsh on episode 4, but really liked this episode again. David is adopted, Shadow King all but confirmed... The inhibitor is one of the things where I expected them to use those X-Men props they flew in. I'm still curious where we'll see those pop up. Probaby the final episode though. Speaking of which... this episode kinda felt like the second to last episode of the season to me. Really happy we still have three to go though.

I am kind of amused that they have an episode with Dan Stevens singing right before Beauty and the Beast comes out.

I think this show tends to get a bit up its own ass with the visuals, the hand held camera movements, the silence. It felt extra gimmicky.
I felt that way during the Rainbow Connection scene but the house segment was absolutely incredible. Scariest thing I've seen in a long time.

ETA: Why did they leave Kissinger at D3? It seemed needlessly cruel given that he wasn't particularly evil from what I recall.

The show is incredible, I love it.
The scary/horror ambiance is amazing.
We could see something was wrong since the start of the episode with how sure of himself, david was.

Jesus. With this and Logan, the XEU (is that even a thing?) is just about the best on screen comic universe right now. Brilliant episode. I really hope they start to make connexions to the other x-men now. Not overtly - I don't particularly feel it's necessary for PatStew to turn up or anything, but I'd love them to start expanding David's universe to at least acknowledge some of his x-contemporaries - even of it's done in an oblique way. Cant wait for next week. This astral plane/other reality stuff is getting into inception territory, which is fine with me. Dan Stevens is the man. Another Brit killing it as a comic character

Based on the time frame (1970s), it's more likely that James McAvoy will show up!

Probably heavily dosed and walking, but if he is high on Beast's formula then he and David will have something in common!

Agreed on the house segment, and as for Kissinger..........huh. That's a good question. Especially given that David left him there and I'd wager that if Ptonomy and Syd looked around, they'd have found a way to rescue him. Though then they'd probably wonder what to do with him.

I was actually getting a pretty ominous vibe from him as he was talking so I can't blame them for not letting him out.

Do we know what the actual timeframe is yet? It seems deliberately vague, having lots of anachroistic stuff in it.

Also I thought this shot was amazing. Aubrey Plaza continues to nail every scene she's in.

I was confused by the final scene. But watching this and comparing it to Aos and the Marvel Netflix shows, it is almost like art.

Melanie stated in a prior episode that her husband bought Summerland in the 40's and if he's been in a coma for 30 years...

Holy crap, what an episode this was! Shadow King is surely confirmed now? Childhood dog named King was a pretty damn good way to tie it together. And holy **** Aubrey Plaza was spooky in this episode, great stuff by all of the cast and man those final scenes and that ending!

Also, Rachel Kellers ass is amazing!

Can any X-men comic readers recommend a good Legion book to read? Interested in learning a bit more about the source material. Am familiar with the core X-men, no so much with the less well known ones.

Someone on another forum suggested that the Kissinger we saw wasn't really Kissinger, he was the Eye masquerading as him, perhaps hoping the team would take him to David. That would explain why he gave off such a creepy vibe.

She's been killing it. Friggin' spooky performance. Almost Joker-esque.

What a terrifying episode.

Really tragic and disturbing too, regarding Syd's relationship with David.

But still hilarious at times.

I love this show.

Agreed. I think once all is said and done, she will rank very high on my list of performances as a comic book villain.

Oliver also mentioned "free love" insinuating that he was not in a coma for at least some of the 60s.
