"Chapter 22" occasionally achieves a kind of tone-poem beauty, a finely textured character study of the sort that made for the high points of seasons one and two.
This was the darkest entry yet for Legion's third season. But telling David's origin story at this point has to be a dark, horrific tale, given how he's turned out.
"Chapter 22" is a fine reintroduction to Charles Xavier, but an even better episode of Legion. It's able to tell a compelling love story while working in some patented psychedelic and disconcerting imagery.
What an emotional episode. Devastating, and gives some great backstory / insight into David's life, as well as his parents. Truly amazing stuff.
Given the parallels between Gabrielle and Charles, and Syd and David, there's certainly a question looming over the rest of the season as to whether a cycle of mutual destruction can be avoided. For the former couple, though, it's too late.
"Chapter 22" finds itself as the answer to so many questions, and as a place of so many more questions now, while allowing a beautiful love story to play out in its midst.
