It's unclear because Matt Nix said one thing early on and now he is saying something else, but ultimately it seems to be an alternate universe... Independent (from the Hollywood Reporter) January 25, 2017 Burn Notice showrunner Matt Nix is penning the script, having previously said of the show fitting into the wider X-Men universe: "If you look at ...

In theory, the show is set in "modern day", similar to the X-Men movies and most other superhero TV shows. There's enough tidbits of modern life to put a lower bound on the time period, including the references to email you mentioned. (This might become relevant if, at any point in the future, the show is able to cross over with the movies, which is "not ...

Legion is supposed to be a glimpse of David's mind and thus the unreliable narrative of the episode works since we as a viewer do not know which is real and which isn't... Coming to the sequence, the song itself was supposed to showcase the love blooming between David and Syd and the director felt like a Bollywood style song is worth it since Bollywood ...

That's not the end of the show; there are 3 more episodes for the first season. The phrase "A Play, in 5 Acts" is just a mild joke relating to how theatrical performances are usually described, it doesn't literally mean 5 episodes. The scene you're talking about is itself most likely a hallucination. Remember, David and Syd were in his astral plane space ...

When Syd switches back, the bodies actually switch places. This can be seen in S01E01 with David. Syd and David switch minds and David(as Syd) leaves Clockworks but Syd(as David) gets picked up by Melanie's people. Then, when David and Syd's minds switch back, David (in his own body) is free but Syd (in her own body) is with the Summerland bunch. Same with ...

Legion is a series that relies a great deal on supposition and therefor there are several things in the series that have questions that are not answered or are not answered thoroughly. It's apart of Legion's surrealist charm in it's quest to subjectively explore the nature of one's reality. In fact most of characters themselves hardly ask any of the right ...

I'm not sure if the interview means that quite as literally, as one could take it, but the following are some X-Men Easter Eggs from the second season (so far). In episode 2.01 Cary Loudermilk namedrops Shi'ra, an alien Race known in Marvel comics & X-Men (introduced in X-Men #97), most notoriously apart of Dark Phoenix Saga, which Dark Phoenix also ...

In Season 2 this is answered, they started looking for Farouk's body. And "Someplace warm" refers to the desert where Farouk's body is located.

What they're looking for isn't clear, and it might be nothing more than an inside joke: On a purely logistical note, we know that Legion’s production is moving from Vancouver to Los Angeles for season 2, suggesting that less secluded forests and more sunny city streets is what we’ll be witnessing. Hawley told Deadline: “I think part of the fun ...

I agree the dance scene looks very much like the Bond dance sequences. During my previous research I read the script of Legion is so specifically created, every detail is in there for a reason. According to The Hollywood Reporter's interview with Aubrey Plaza: The therapist sessions and the showdown with David aren't even Plaza's only big swings of ...

It's not a magnet, it's a tuning fork. Here is the relevant dialogue from the episode: Cary Loudermilk: But Clark's coming, too, and he's bringing something. David Haller: The Choke. It's a dampener. Cary Loudermilk: What does it dampen? David Haller: Us. Our powers. Something to do with the frequency when you ring it. None of our ...

According to Legion Fan Wiki, the reason this happened this way is because Sydney didn't have control over her body-swapping ability! Sydney first had sex when she was 16. Her mom was dating a journalist at the time, and Syd and the journalist had a flirtation. When her mom had passed out on the couch, Syd heard the journalist taking a shower. Using ...

Actually there are A LOT of 60's & 70's British period film influences in Legion, as Noah Hawley had mentioned in early interviews -- and no doubt some of it is very James Bond inspired (Oliver Bird)---But there are other film influences also from Stephen King (It, The Shinning, Pet Sematary) to Kubric (Clockwork Orange) or even Hitchcock (The Birds = ...
