legion-chapter-7

“Chapter 7” begins to offer answers. With David (Dan Stevens) and his friends still locked away in the mental institution of his mind, and David further segmented from the group in the deepest recesses of his mind, Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) now controls all. Working through his troubles with another aspect of himself, David is able to piece together some basic facts about himself and the other consciousness which has been with him nearly his entire life.

Leave to the craziest character to make the most logical deduction. Ever since he left the mental institution, David (Dan Stevens) has been surrounded by people telling him that he isn’t sick and that all his episodes and mental problems are only manifestations of his powers which he never properly learned to deal with and control. The idea that no one, other than David himself, has raised is that it isn’t necessarily and either/or proposition. Mutant or schizophrenic? Why can only one of those be true?
