In Noah Hawley’s Legion we’re never quite sure what’s actually happening; our narrator — David Haller — is extremely unreliable and though he’s outwardly quite a likable guy, something dark is always lurking underneath. Is it because of that beasty Yellow-Eyed Monster, or is the monster actually David himself? Because as comic readers know, this X-Boy’s not so innocent as we viewers might like to think. And while last season some of us were constantly second-guessing who was real or not, veering from one minute thinking at the least, Rachel Keller’s Syd and Jean Smart’s Melanie Bird must be, the more Season 2 promos we see, the more likely it seems that even if they once were, David may have absorbed every one of the fabulous characters we’re in love with.
But hey, at least “people” are still dancing.
Legion returns to FX April 3rd.
