    The Legion season 2 finale was tonight..... Amazing!! Absolutely AMAZING!!!

    I didn't know how they could bring it all together in one episode in the end but they did it brilliantly!!

    So now I guess the Shadow King is going to be the only thing that can protect everyone in Division 3 while Carey creates a device to capture David, and I assume Potonomy plays a big part as well.

    While I knew a lot of the Legion comic story, I didn't know how much they would follow. If they use the first two seasons of the show just to set up the true villain of the series.... David.... I will be truly in aw of this show. A f***ing masterpiece

    No 2... this show is No 2 on my favorite current shows right now, only behind A Game of Thrones

    Finally caught up. Just incredible.

    I feel like I have to watch this show 100 times to figure everything out.

    So many questions I'll probably have most answered by watching a second time.

    But I loved how they brought the whole thing back around to the egg with the seed of madness/corruption from earlier.

    I'm also thinking the episode where we see all the possible futures for David will also come back around and play a big part in season 3

    Yeah the long form storytelling is just incredible. They brought back elements of season one even.

    So I'm thinking he's actually schizophrenic and the other Davids were his Id and Ego. What do you think?

    I felt like the resolution between everyone else and Farouk was a little rushed, but I absolutely adore where they went with this.

    I agree the resolution with Farouk was a bit rushed, but everything was so good I didn't really care too much.

    I'm not sure what the other Davids represented, but I now need to re watch from season 1 and 2 to see if David exhibits different traits when hes wearing Orange, or Green, or Yellow shirts. The show seems to give little hints about things like that through color a lot.

    Also I loved the beginning fight scene where David and Farouk are hovering through the air doing mental battle. It was a great way to represent it

    Honestly, there are so many things I KNOW I'm missing. It seems like everything has meaning in the show.

    This is totally off the top of my head, but I feel like yellow makes him more "confident" where they used to use that color to represent the Shadow King's influence. David was at his most powerful and frightening when he was confident because he's f***ing crazy and assumes he's right with or without consequence.

    I liked the change to white at the end. He was talking about being clean and starting fresh and being "god" so he turned to a blank, white sheet color.

    I didn't love Syd's turn either. It wasn't forced in my opinion, they'd been building it all year. I just felt like she should have tried harder to keep him with her. She should have been more angry about what she was seeing when Farouk was showing her all of David's bad side. Besides, watching with my wife I told her: if someone had kidnapped you and was holding you hostage and I got my hands on them, I might enjoy inflicting pain on them too. It's kind of BS to make that leap of "he's evil because he's enjoying killing a bad guy". But I guess the point is their relationship was fool's gold from the beginning?
