Are you still experiencing trauma from watching FX’s Legion “Chapter 13“? Us too — and it looks like we’re not the only ones, as David Haller (Dan Stevens) is spending time showing off a nearly infinite number of himself in the promo for “Chapter 14.”
You might even say he’s displaying a… Wait for it… Legion of Davids.
Anyway, if I was to venture a guess, I’d say David is dealing with the trauma of seeing how his sister Amy Haller (Katie Aselton) died last episode. Particularly because the alternate reality we see the most shows off Amy as David’s doctor, prescribing his pills.
Chances are we’ll get to see a few more Davids before the episode is out, but let’s break down all the different ~looks~ from the promo, shall we?
1. Prime David
For the moment, let’s call this “Prime David,” which may or may not be “our” David. At the very least, it looks like this episode could have some flashbacks. Are we in an alternate reality the whole time? Or is there something else going on? Perhaps we blip back through David and Amy’s history together?
2. A Clockworks David
3. Cool Architect David
4. Unfrozen Caveman David
5. Happy Family David
6. Burnt David
7. Plague Of Davids
8. Too Much Coffee David
9. Truck Stop David
A pretty regular David who hangs out and wears vests with his nametag on them. Of note, he looks remarkably similar to how Amy’s husband was dressed last episode. Perhaps this is all David traveling the multiverse to rescue his sister? I hope?
10. Bag O’ Dirt David
11. Matrix David
I’m getting strong Mr. Smith vibes from this David, tbh.
12. Sailor David
13. The David With the Yellow Eyes
14. Professor X-David
Easily the most intriguing David, because to me, with the shaved head, he looks like the man we think is probably his father: Professor Charles Xavier. Are we about to find out more about David’s origins?
15. Dead David
Check out the promo and see if you spot any more Davids!
