I really love(d) this show. Season 1 was great. Season 2 got way more bizarre and was unfocused and you couldn't quite tell what was really going on half the time, but I trusted Noah Hawley and believed he knew what he was doing. Now I feel duped.
I'm not against them turning David into a villain because it's obvious that's what the season was about, it's HOW they did it, and specifically what they did with Syd. I do not like her anymore. They dedicated an entire episode of her showing David how screwed up of a person she was and how she makes him suffer through her BS and yet he still cares about her.
Buuuut when Melanie (while being possessed by Shadow King) tells her David is evil Syd is soooo quick to believe it, to the point where she tries to kill David. Like, without even discussing it with him. Just jumps straight to murder. Because that's how you treat someone you claim to love, someone who you waited a year for. Yeah. Makes total sense.
Buuuut the show really really wants so much for us to be against David so he mind wipes Syd and has mind sex with her which basically reads as a date rape. Now I don't like EITHER of them. And everyone just forgives Shadow King for all the terrible things he's done. I mean OF COURSE you trust the villain you've been hunting all season over the guy who's been helping you all this time. Yeah. Makes total sense.
I was so worried Legion was going to get cancelled because of its low ratings at the beginning of the season. Now I kinda don't care anymore. What a difference two episodes make.
