Syd is still the best-written character on the show...

It cannot be overstated how good Plaza is here, using her laid-back, sarcastic charm to infuse every Lenny moment with a mocking humor.

Great work from the cast again, and some beautifully designed shots, particularly the wobbly angles and dreamlike camerawork in the assault on Division 3.

There is no special effect, camera or editing trick as effective as Aubrey Plaza's face, which is utterly terrifying this episode.

It's still playing its cards close to its chest, but Legion is finally starting to give us hints at what kind of a hand it's got.

It's not just superheroes and horror that coexist on the show and among David's multiple personalities: The good show and the shaky one share a head space as well - ours.

I loved this episode! The story is barreling forward, and the plot is much easier to follow. I can't wait to see how they escape Clockworks, and if the contraption Loudermilk came up with can help David regain control.

We were ready, we thought - but this Legion episode just totally turned our entire world upside-down.

Legion is by no means a realistic or nuanced interpretation of schizophrenia, but the way it ties the main villain to the illness is fascinating.

Everything Legion does, sometimes more effectively than others, is focused on creating empathy between the audience and David.

After what I- and apparently not that many other people- would consider a rocky start, Legion has figured out a great dynamic between a group of characters.

Legion is the best horror series in years without even claiming the genre.

The episode proved itself to be another excellent installment that mixes style with intrigue.

Legion does a lot of things well... but I think it's worth talking about more specifically after an episode like "Chapter 5." That is to say, after a startling, great episode of television like "Chapter 5."

Everyone in Legion believes in someone or something for different reasons, but they're all driven by that same hope, of finding what they want to see.
