In the upcoming Legion season 1 episode 2 on Fox, David (Dan Stevens) will realize that his psychological disease is not a physical weakness after all. He will discover more about his mutant powers through the aid of individuals who saved him from the government agents who wanted to interrogate him as well. Read on to know how everything will transpire in the next episode.
Legion Season 1 Episode 2 spoilers: David will learn about his ability
In the trailer for episode 2, Melanie (Jean Smart), the head of the group who saved David from the government people, informed him that he is not sick. Melanie stated that the diagnosis saying David has Schizoprenia is not the reason for his weird experiences. She further explained that the weird things that he saw were actually a manifestation of his powers.
In the teaser, Melanie’s team brought David to what appears to be the group’s underground center. She stated that David has powerful telepathic abilities. She said “We find your powers. We see what triggers them. We make you whole.”
Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris) tells David that the group is at war with the government agency who interrogated him. This is the reason why they rescued David from the hands of wicked officials. In the promo clip, Ptonomy told David, “We’re at war and we’re losing and you maybe the powerful mutant alive.”
Legion Season 1 Episode 2 plot: Control vs Cultivate
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Rachel Keller, who plays Syd, said that Melanie is running a different kind of facility than Clockworks. She said that they have opposing views about the mutant powers. One group wants to control while the other desires to discover and cultivate the unique abilities of the mutants. Apparently, Melanie believes in the latter.
Executive producer Noah Hawley told TVLine that Melanie does not want to weaponize mutants. She wants to help David understand who he really is. This is the principle that Melanie followed and provided for many individuals. However, when she started to apply the ideology on David, things started getting weird. Hawley stated that Melanie recognizes that the “enemy within may be more effective than the enemy without.”
Stevens also spoke about the show’s pilot episode, “I think most shows in their pilot hour are setting up a store, and it’s like, this is what we have on display here.” He added that in the pilot episode of Legion Season 1, it revealed the tone, the humor and the other things that fans can anticipate. Steven stated that with Legion, things will be exceptionally weird.
The series is not the typical superhero film since it focused on other factors. The TV series follows the life of David, an unsuspecting boy who has actually been detected by medical experts with Schizophrenia. In the X-Men comics series, David is the child of Charles Xavier.
