"Chapter 3" successfully synthesizes the stunning visual style and compelling narrative of its predecessors into a solid and entertaining third episode.
I think this has been my favorite episode so far: it's scary and exciting once you chill out and accept that they're not going to try to rescue Amy at any point.
Still, the visual twists and tricks continue to impress, drawing you into the world rather than distancing you from it.
After two scatterbrained episodes... the show now seems ready to get on with the business of making this superhuman a superhero.
It's possible that the more accessible storytelling is a reflection of David getting comfortable at Summerland, and it makes me wonder if "Chapter Three" is intentionally basic to set a point of contrast for strangeness to come.
There's a lot of exposition in this episode, and some of it didn't land well for me, especially because it could have been tackled earlier to the benefit of everybody.
The series has carved out a clear visual identity - nothing on TV feels quite like this.
Legion seems to be moving both quickly and slowly. Not a lot happens in the real world during this episode, but so much is going on inside David's mind.
It's possible all of that may be a side effect of swapping bodies with David, but given that this is "Legion," the answer is undoubtedly much bigger, and more complicated, than that.
Legion Chapter 3 is everything the second episode should have been: interesting, dark, and weird while progressing significant parts of the story.
"Chapter 3" was a successful blend of the more dazzling visual style of the premiere with the more conventional narrative of the second episode.
I don't know about you, but I'm still reeling from the end of this latest Legion episode.
Legion has proven adept at being eye-catching and has drawn me in, now keep me here.
