Critic Consensus: The strangest, most gripping Legion episode to date, "Chapter 4" still moves the show's storytelling forward in a more traditional and illuminating way.

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.
With "Chapter 4," Legion has reached the halfway point of its first season and delivered its best episode since the pilot.
It's not just a fun ride through an X-world, it's a nuanced, artful, dreamlike experience that looks absolutely amazing and is populated by very good actors.
If previous episodes of "Legion" lurched from psychological thriller to sci-fi drama to horror tale, then this week's veers into hard-boiled detective and war-story territory.
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.
