Time is a big part of Legion’s third and final season. Time’s also running out, as Chapter 23 is the halfway point. The show remains as oddly surreal as ever, and the David vs Division Three war gets more complicated.
In the comics, one of the important facts about David “Legion” Haller is that his father is the famous (or infamous) Charles Xavier, Professor X, founder of the X-Men. This episode finally addresses that, although with a few changes to the story.
The general insanity that is Legion continues with Chapter 21. Even the recap doesn’t sound sure what’s been going on, since it starts with “Ostensibly on Legion.”
After a longer than normal break, Fox’s Legion returns for its third and final season. The show remains just as surreal as it has been the last two seasons, although with a major status quo change.
I firmly believe there never comes a point when you don’t have something to learn, but I’ll take the risk of calling myself an expert in this one, narrow area. Here’s one rule I’ve come up with over time that I stand by, seeing proven time and again: when you have a story you’re adapting, and make random changes from the source material that don’t really serve any good purpose, the story suffers. That said, it’s time to talk about X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
What may be the final episode of The Gifted is a busy outing that ends dramatically, and makes me wonder if the possible cancellation was a surprise to the showrunners.
The Gifted are closing in on the end of the season, and possibly the series, with “Monsters.” There is no confirmation of the show’s status either way, and the possibility of some kind of online/streaming transition has come up a few times. As I’ve said several times, this band of mutants just can’t seem to catch a break.
