Well, the show hasn't really addressed his power set yet so I guess we'll see. Are you watching?

oops

what i took from it was this

Spoiler: show
those in the similar jackets where all different personalities.
the for lack of a better description, fat guy who looked like a gnome/troll was the personality that controlled the tk
not sure what the power of the guy who hid in the foilage
aubrey may be the personality who projects telepathic suggestions
finally i think syd is also one of the personalities

Spoiler: show
i am actually wondering if he was ever in that hospital at all and if it wasnt some sort of projection

and thats what makes this so great, the fact that there can be so many different outcomes due to the source material (david haller and having multiple personalites) can leave you guessing everything


i liked in the comics they show him inside his brain in the control center and when he needs a power he calls that personality up to the (i think it was an elevator) to take over for a minute while the power is used

I can see I'm going to have to watch each of these twice. I caught things I'd missed when I rewatched the first one. I paid attention last night but , I think I still missed stuff.

The thing with Legion is you will never know what's real and what's not as each personality controls a different power.

And right now we don't know which characters with powers are real and which are part of him. We'll just have to watch it play out.

I haven't seen episode 3 yet, because they don't come up on hulu until Sunday, but I'm really liking this so far.

You can definitely tell that it's made by Noah Hawley. It looks and feels a lot like Fargo sometimes, but I love Fargo so that's great.

I read a while ago that Hawley is also working on an adaptation of Cats Cradle. I really hope that happens, because I think he would really nail it.

I'm primarily interested in this because of Hawley. :thumbsup:
