FX’s Legion is gorgeous to look at, but some people have expressed a hope for a somewhat more coherent narrative moving forward. That hope gets answered this week, as the series’ third episode not only fuses the dream sequences with significant action and narrative momentum, but provides the best installment yet of the Marvel show. Staffers Alex McLevy, Danette Chavez, and Gwen Ihnat break down the key beats of “Chapter 3” and even spend a little time talking about whether it’s getting a little too intense for some viewers. (Hint: No, it’s just getting even more awesome.)
