This was a great episode! Aubrey Plaza needs to get nominated for her performance. I loved the line about Davids father and how a holy man like him can throw him up for adoption Season 2 has to have a cameo from McAvoy or Stewart.

It should be Stewart, he looks the part more than the other one.

McAvoy is far too young to appear. Unless its a flashback. But Stewart seems far more likely, especially with him stating his interest publicly.

Yeah, see, that's been what I've been wondering all this time. Stewart seems like the easy and more recognizable choice to go with, and while this show is far removed from the X-Men films, Charles, timeline wise, would probably be more along the lines of McAvoy's version since it seems like Legion takes place sometime between First Class and Days of Future Past.

Not that continuity matters when it comes to this show. Heck, maybe throw them both in. Maybe David remembers his father in different ways. Like Deadpool said, these timelines are confusing.

Ptonomy's memories drops a hint that this show is set in the present though. The song he mentions listening to as a kid is from 1983 - some sharp eyed AV Club commenter caught that and I don't think that was unintentional from someone like Hawley.

That is...unless Ptonomy isn't real.

This show has better acting performances and camera work than those MCU shows!

One thing I think helps is that it's such a huge departure from what we'd expect from Aubrey Plaza unless I've missed some dramatic role she's played before this.

Yes I can't stop gushing over how great Aubrey Plaza is in this. And I hadn't really seen her in anything before Legion. Heck I had no idea who she was at all. But she is absolutely KILLING it. This episode in general was amazing. Gives us more time to get to know the characters, it also felt unsettling, and it shows that this show can still get a thousand times more trippy than it already was. Can't wait for next week!

Honestly casting Aubrey Plaza as Shadow King is the best casting decision this franchise has done since we saw Dafne Keen play Laura two weeks ago.

At first the episode appeared to be pure filler but as I was starting to become impatient it upped its creepiness factor (as this show is wont to do). This whole world and every character that have been created by the writers are so fascinating.

Stewart is far too old to appear. McAvoy is starring in films that seemingly take place around this shows setting. Why interchange them like that. Just so we can muddy the continuity further?

Never watched Parks and Rec and I didn't remember her being in Scott Pilgrim, no. I'd also seen her in Dirty Grandpa apparently and she voiced Eska, but well... I hate Eska. So yeah...

A slower episode, but still great nonetheless. And who among us didn't squeee a bit when Lenny talked about David's 'holy' real father?

I just thought how it'd be cool if the next X-Men film actually turned out to be some Muir Island Saga adaptation and not a Dark Phoenix film, and Fox were just waiting for Legion to drop the bomb about Shadow King.

Ah right. Didn't think that gag was all that great.

Edit: I just realized though... imagine the response if FX had actually announced that Aubrey Plaza was playing this character beforehand. Everything would've been on fire. Now people love it, and (imho) rightfully applaud her performance.

Got to agree with everyone about Aubrey, she is superb in this and playing a great villain. Another good episode, can't wait to see what the last 2 come up with.

Is Lenny really the Shadow King? Or will they call her the Shadow Queen?

Shadow King. Though obviously she is still just one of many ways in which the Shadow King manifests in Legion.

Lenny was a real person, she really died. Shadow King just took on her appearance because she was David's friend. So it's not really gender swapped.

In the promo he was referred as Amahl Farouk "Shadow King".
