It's not an easy feat to explain and tidy up everything in an hour, especially a show as convoluted as this, but "Chapter Seven" does so while maintaining Legion's unorthodox style and tone. I can't wait to see how this mind-bending season ends.
"Chapter Seven" finally reveals the true identity of the series' villain, and as it dives deeper into X-Men comic-book mythology, it shifts into a storytelling mode that is more familiar to fans of that franchise.
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.
For the second week in a row, Legion flew by with a relatively action-packed episode as the gang tries to escape from the Astral plane. Not that anybody's complaining - finally, it feels like we're going somewhere!
