Critic reviews for Chapter 4

The show's habit of constantly revealing aspects of its own reality to be false is less interesting and more exasperating than it thinks, but I am invested in the idea of taking a character seemingly worth rooting for.

There's still some smaller things to like in this episode. I appreciate that the episode explored Syd coming to terms with the fact that she knows very little about David and maybe her perception is just as warped as David's memories.

Tonight's Legion may be the weirdest, most abstract hour of TV I've seen since Twin Peaks ended(*). Even compared to the previous three episodes... this was cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. And I loved every baffling minute of it.

All right, I can admit when I'm wrong. After tonight's incredibly gripping Legion episode, I've pivoted on who I think the yellow-eyed monster who creeps around in David's subconscious is, and the key to his identity is not where you'd expect to find it.

I don't think we're ever going to get a purely linear show as far as plot goes, and that's great, but they moved the needle more towards standard storytelling, and that can only help.

The Legion creative team has to perform a challenging balancing act as the series splits time between mind-bendin.g psycho-drama and X-Men-influenced superhero storytelling, and "Chapter Four" is the most successful example of this dynamic yet.
