Previously on Legion…
Escaping from Division 3, David (Dan Stevens) finds himself in a place called Summerland, a place that seems to be for people like him — and he learns that not only is he not mentally ill, but he is in possession of powers beyond imagining. And with the help of other people with gifts, he begins to learn how to control his abilities.
Next week, in this Legion 1.03 preview, it seems like while David is continuing to learn how to control his abilities, it is not going to be an easy ride. And all the while, Division 3 is interrogating his sister, Amy (Katie Aselton), and have recruited her to help them find him — surely, they’re telling her that they just want what’s best for him. With her on their side, it may make it much easier for them to find Summerland.
Tune in on February 22 to find out.
Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 20’s and free once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the daily life: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Shannon (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.
