Critic reviews for Chapter 7
The exposition parts don't really explain much you couldn't have guessed from the previous episode and reading an article on Nerdist or something, and a lot of the rest is just incredibly abstract.
After a season of intricately threaded loose ends and crafted visual textures, Legion's first episode of a two part climax pulls out all the stops as it heads towards closure.
It's a testament to the world that the series has crafted in just a short amount of time that it never really feels jarring or out of place when the world of David Haller inevitably turns sideways.
It's difficult to say whether "Chapter 7," the latest episode of FX and Marvel's addictive TV collaboration Legion, is singlehandedly the best episode of superhero television this year because it's great or because it's satisfying.
"Chapter 7" has to devote a lot of time to exposition... Fortunately, it's happening Legion-style... that it never feels like the story is grinding to a halt so that the characters can explain things to each other, and to us.
