No, can't stand the stuff.
I didn't know who Noah Hawley was, so I looked it up. Now that I realize it's the same showrunner as Fargo, it makes perfect sense that he re-used Jean Smart. She's such a great actress. Fargo is an excellent show, so I'm not surprised I'm enjoying this one so much as well.
I am totally loving this show; it's almost like it was made for exactly my sensibilities. Just weird enough without being too weird, for one thing, which is a very fine line for me.
There are so many great shows on now that it's hard to rank them, though certainly "Game of Thrones," "Westworld," "The Magicians," "The Expanse," and "iZombie" are in some order my top five, but I feel like I have to push one of them out for "Legion," and since after watching the latest episode I said to my wife, "This has replaced 'iZombie,' 'Lucifer,' and 'Preacher' as my favorite comic-book-based series," I guess it has to be "iZombie." And I hate to say that because I adore "iZombie."
Episode 5. Dude. That last scene reminded me of the Buffy episode "Normal Again".
Yeah, just when I'm pretty confident that I know which parts are going on in the "real world" and which parts are taking place in David's mind...
It may just have crossed that line for me. I was almost relieved when it seemed to reboot, since that would mean I don't have to figure out what happened in the first 9/10 of the episode. So are we still in the looney bin?
No, I think we're in David's head.
I'm almost certain we're in David's head - or at least an alternate reality/astral plane/something else - with it all being orchestrated by Lenny/DWYE.
It wasn't clear to me that when David was taking Syd to the astral plane that their bodies went with them. They seemed to show her with her eyes closed while it was happening. As such, not sure that taking her there would save them from Eye's machine gun. But on the other hand, David attacking D3 seemed completely immune to bullets, and also to be a pretty good dancer.
But Syd was also in the line of fire, so hopefully she is okay.
Man, this show gets better every week. So much awesome this week! My big question is, is it only Syd who is in the asylum at the end and the others are just imaginary, or are all of them really in there, with David?
So, in the final scene of episode 5, we have (starting at 12 o'clock and going clockwise): Syd, David, "The Man In All His Clothes", Melanie, Kerry, Cary, Walter "The Eye", Rudy the telekinetic (in a wheelchair), Ptonomy, and Lenny (as doctor). Let's play "one of these is not like the others". All of them had significant roles to play in previous scenes and episodes, even Rudy was in more than one scene (only two episodes, though), but "The Man In All His Clothes" only had one short, previous scene, from the first episode:
So I wonder why he is here with the more important characters. He was sitting next to Lenny in his previous scene, here he is next to David, so that suggests he might be David-parasite related. I don't know what to make of his "name", but that is how he is listed:
Note that Amy is not in the final scene of episode 5, even though she was at the house in the scene just before.
At what point in episode 5 did the Eye replace Rudy, and what happened to the real Rudy? We saw Rudy use his telekinetic power when going into division 3 (he ripped of the door), but I think that is the last time we saw him use his power. When they were leaving division 3, we saw Rudy walk out of camera (with the others) and then the Eye (as himself) walked into camera. Later, we saw Rudy approach David's childhood home with the others, and then when they approached the house, the camera zoomed behind them to show the Eye watching them enter. Rudy went off on his own in the house, so I suppose that is the most likely time for the Eye to replace him. I wonder if the Eye killed Rudy.
And the final question, which was also asked by David in episode 1:
Was everything up to this point a hallucination? If so, whose hallucination, David's or Syd's? Ordinarily I would think David's, but apparently Syd was speaking just before the beginning of the scene at the end of episode 5.
Could Syd and DWTYE have switched places?
I think it's all of them, and thus...
...probably not, since she didn't switch places with David in his mind.
Er... who is "DWTYE"?
Demon With The Yellow Eyes...the fat guy in David's head.
Devil With The Yellow Eyes. You can see it in the third screenshot I posted.
DWYE for short.
This was the craziest episode yet. Just when you think you are starting to get a handle on what's going on, they flip the script yet again. Still loving this show!
Absolutely loving this show. Every time I think I have it figured out, there's another twist. Love it, love it, love it.
