Legion - Season 1, Episode 8 - Rotten Tomatoes

Chapter 8



Critic Consensus: Legion's season finale nudges the series closer to asserting its comic roots, forgoing some of its more convention-flouting tendencies in favor of deeper storytelling -- and arranging the canvas nicely for its sophomore season.

Critic reviews for Chapter 8

The bad news is that this true self does feature a great deal of mugging from David, who sucks. The good news is everything else.

"Chapter 8" isn't bad so much as it is... fine. But when your show at its best is so creative and surprising and audacious... a perfectly normal, competent ending to the story can't help being a disappointment.

Fans don't need to be spoon-fed everything, and Legion's existence outside the well-known world of the X-Men films is what has allowed it to thrive both creatively and narratively.

Well, that was certainly one heck of a ride! And I hope you all stayed after the credits like good superhero movie-loving nerds, because if you didn't, you missed something big.

Though the final showdown may have left a little to be desired, the rest of the episode featured all of the elements that made this season such a joy to watch and set up the series nicely for its return.

A little more care is exactly what this episode, and the show in general, really needed.
