Legion (2017–…): Season 1, Episode 7 - Chapter 7 - full transcript

While David is on the astral plane, he is in a mental coffin, where he meets up with himself, albeit an English Speaking inner self, who opens David's mind to all the situations and their origin. Meanwhile Oliver is instructing each in how to see the monster with special glasses while in the astral plane. There is a band put onto David's head to suppress the monster. Melanie finds out Oliver is actually alive. An old nemesis of David pops up who tells his soldiers to kill all of them as he has found David.

Meditation starts in 20 minutes...

in the activity room.

What did he do With it?

What did he do With it?

What did he do With it?

What did he do With it?
What did he do With it?

What did he do With it?

What did he do With it?

Hey, sexy.

Tell me about the day David came
to live with you.


A man brought him. Yeah?

- I was 4.
- But you remember.

Don't lie.

It was late.

I was in my room and I heard voices.

So I snuck out onto the landing.

Look at that.

For a long time, I thought it was a dream.

Yeah, that was him.

What did he do With it?

What did he do With it?

What did he do With it?

Why are you doing this?
He was just a baby.

He's not a baby now.

Looks like one of the animals
is out of its pen.


You've manifested your cryogenic state
into a literal ice cube.

When I woke up this morning,
I thought to myself:

It's gonna be daylight savings soon.

Then I realized I don't know
what that means.

It's when you set the clocks
forward or back...

to maximize daylight
during the workday.

That's not very interesting.

I thought we were literally
saving daylight.

My God.

- Oliver, you haven't aged an hour.
- Ooh.

- Wait till Melanie sees...
- Melanie?

- Your wife.
- My wife?

Is she...?

For some reason I want to say Chinese?

- No, she's not Chinese.
- Got it.


No, not Asian in any way. No.

Good to know. I've been in here
a long time, you see.

At least I think I have.

Hours. Or what's longer than hours?


My memory is a bit, um... It's a bit...

What's the word? What's the word?

Dishes? No.


I suppose we'd better rescue them,
then, your friends.

I've been watching, you see,
this David person and his monster.

He can't find us in here
in case you're worrying.

- The parasite.
- Yes, that's what I said. Parasite.

Mental obviously.

Yes, a separate consciousness
from David...

- Has attached itself to him and has been...
- Using his power to feed its own.

- Are you gonna do that the whole time?
- Do what?

- Finishing my sentences.
- No, I'm sorry. Old habit.

You're not in any way a tenor per chance,
are you?

- A tenor?
- We're starting a barbershop quartet.

David and myself.
"Roll Out The Barrel," that kind of thing.

Nothing serious. Just fun.
Which reminds me...

You know what it is, don't you?

I'm sorry. I'm having trouble keeping up.

- What...?
- The monster. You know what it is.

Or should I say who.


I read David's mind, you see, when they
were trapped here. He and David.

He's very clever, our monster.

But he puts all his energy
into tricking David.

Didn't think to watch his 6.
And by 6, I mean...

- What do I mean?
- Wait, wait, you're saying...

Of course. Amahl Farouk.
I should have known.

The dog.

- There's a dog?
- In David's memories...

he's disguised himself
as a really very cute little beagle...

but the name, King, I should...

Amahl Farouk, the Shadow King.

- We have to rescue them.
- Didn't I just say that?

I'm sure I said that. "Rescue them."
After the whole Chinese wife debate.

Which I'm still not totally convinced.

Are you sure she's not? Because I seem
to have a very intimate recollection of...

All right, then.
Then the next question is how?

How do we rescue them?

We are just minds after all.

And their bodies...

are in quite a jumble.

Facing certain death and all that.

He's too powerful for me, Farouk.

He's too virile psychically.

David could break you out of the dream,
possibly all of you...

but he's compromised currently.

Farouk has locked him away
in a tiny corner of his mind.

He'll be gone entirely soon.

And then the Shadow King
will become David.

There's too much vermouth.

You want me
to put a little bit more vodka in there?


My device.

I made a halo randomly firing
electromagnetic signals...

in a 360-degree radius which should,
if we could put it on David's head...

The real David in the now frozen time line.

It should block the Shadow King.

Isolate it and end the hospital fantasy.

Unfreezing time and executing your friends
in a hail of bullets unfortunately.

Unless we can physically change
the dynamic of the room.

Block the bullets, move the bodies.

We're gonna need everybody.

May I introduce you to my friend
Jules Verne?

It's all right.

He can't hear us in here, the monster.

He's very powerful, but Oliver
has a few tricks left up his sleeve.

- First of all...
- Syd, it's easier if I just talk.

- The hospital wasn't real.
- No shit.

To be accurate, there is a real hospital,
but we weren't there.

It was a mental projection
created by the monster.

- I've been paying attention.
- Right. Well, so...

Our bodies are
in David's childhood bedroom...

“probably frozen in time.

And if I remember,
someone just fired a machine gun.

So I'm thinking when time starts again,
we'll all be killed.

Yes, wow.

What we have to do
is distract the monster...

who looks like Lenny, but isn't, so we
can save our bodies without her knowing...

and end the hospital fantasy
and save David.

Right, and there's a device. I built a...

Great, so I'll go to the hospital and save the
others and deal with Lenny and you fix it...

so I'm not murdered when I wake up.

- Are we good?
- Yeah, that's what I was...

- Great, let's go.
- Wait, wait, wait.

You'll need these.

Oliver made them.

That's Melanie's... Anyway...

he has some control here.

And he made these to help us.

They'll show you what's real
and what isn't.

These are for the others.

Try not to draw attention to yourself.

- Because Farouk is watching.
- Farouk?

Yeah, it's a long story.
Just maintain the illusion.

And be ready.

I'll send a signal when I'm in place.

This ought to be interesting.

I'm coming for you, baby.

- David.
- Come...



- I thought you were...
- Set them along the perimeter.

On the chest of a barmaid in Sale
Were tattooed the prices of ale

And on her behind, for the sake of the
blind Was the same information in Braille

Oliver Bird, dedicated follower of fashion.

Have I seen you before?

At the poetry slam?

- No. Heh. -
- You do seem familiar though.

What did you say your name was again?

No, don't tell me.

I'll remember.

Whoo. What a pickle.

Where did you say that device was,
the, halo?

Here in my hand.

So you're saying multiphasers...






Okay. You're okay.

You're just in a coffin. It's no big deal.

It's not even a... It's more of a mental...

It's a mental coffin.

Your body isn't...
It's your mind that's trapped.

Which is...

That's not better.


David. You're freaking out.

- Stop it.
- No, you're not...

Don't tell me I'm trapped in here with
another thing, monster, whatever it is.

No, he's up there, the monster.

He tricked us into giving up control.

- Tricked you.
- What?

Yeah, I got that part.

But if you're not the monster, then...

I'm you, your rational mind.

You're having a breakdown,
a stress response.

Your power is kicking in to save you.
It created me. You did.

- And you're British?
- Like I said, I'm your rational mind.

- And I created you?
- Yes.

To help you find a way out of here before
this thing takes control of our body forever.

Okay, well...


Look around, pal.

- We're in a locked coffin underground.
- Right.

- Ahem.
- There is no way out.

Tell me, how can we be underground
when we're not even inside our body?

So if there's no body, and no ground...

then there's no coffin.

It's just an idea.

That makes sense.

Good. Now, I want you
to imagine a classroom.

A what?

A classroom. With a blackboard.

We're gonna figure this thing out,
you and me.

Once and for all.


Nice blackboards.

Now, I want you to forget all the tricks...

the memory work, the MRI.

Forget all the lies. It's your mind.
You know everything the monster knows.

So go back to the beginning.
What have we learned?

I'm adopted.

Good. Write it on the board.

- Really?
- Yeah. You imagined chalk, right?

Well, go on.

Which wedding day...? My parents were...

I don't know what to call them now.

Why didn't they tell me?
Or, Amy, why didn't she...?

Hey, focus. This is about facts.

Fact 1: you're adopted.
What's Fact 2?

What did Lenny say about your father,
your real father?

She said she knew him.

Yes, and before we go further,
let me ask you this.

Do you think that thing up there
is Lenny?


So, what is it?

What'd he say, this scientist?

A parasite?

Yes, write it down.

It's not an insect, right?

Not a bot fly or a tapeworm. It's a...

Yes, of course.

It's a mutant.

Like me.

And it's been with you a long time,
maybe since you were a...?

A baby.

So okay. I had a dad.

And a morn, I guess, right?

And if Lenny knew him,
then he was probably a mutant like me.

Psychic, I'm guessing. And he...

This thing, the monster, was his enemy.

And they must have fought.

Did they fight with their fists?

No, they fought here...

in the astral plane.

With their minds.

And my father... God, this is so weird.

I don't even know how to picture him. Um...

Screw it. Okay.
My father, he must've won.

And the monster, whatever...

somehow his mind or his soul
or his being, whatever...

it didn't die.

But its mind floated off.

Then Dad goes home.

"Sweetheart, it's over.
I won. Give me some sugar."

ls that supposed to be a British accent?

And there's me, I'm born.

And he... They... Somehow they decided
to give me away, right?

I mean, did they know?

Or maybe it wasn't...

Maybe it wasn't about the monster.
Maybe they just didn't want me.

Boo-hoo. Come on, focus.

Right. You're right.

- I am pretty, I am loved.
- Good. Keep going.

Let's say for now that Dad...

was worried it wasn't safe for me...

so instead, to keep me safe...

I went to live with
my other mom and dad.

My adopted, in secret...

Somehow, the monster was watching...

and found me.

And like a haunted house...

- it possessed me.
- Why?


- Isn't that what you...? What it said?
- Good. Keep going.

It possessed me.

- And that made me sick.
- What are you doing?

And my powers didn't help.

Hearing voices, and seeing...
But this thing made it worse.

And he... It poisoned me my whole life.

It made me... It made me crazy.

And it fed on me.

- To what end?
- Power.

It was weak.

But I made it stronger...

my powers.

And it kept feeding.

What did Lenny say?

The only being that matters
in the universe is God?

So it fed on me, so that one day, maybe...

it could get its revenge.

Or worse.

Then Syd came,
and she woke me up.

The monster realized
he couldn't hide anymore, and it...

And here we are.

I mean, not here in this classroom, but...

Where are we again?

Our mind is in the astral plane.

Our body is in our room
from when we were kids...

with our friends,
and they're in trouble.

Melanie was wrong.

I was sick...

but I'm not sick anymore.

So, what are you gonna do about it?

I'm gonna get my body back.



No, no.

May I?

Where was I? Yes. Here we go...





You Okay?


- Lt's gone.
- No.


It's not gone.

We've isolated it in your mind,
the monster, with the device.

- So leave it on?
- Yes, please.

- You okay?
- Yeah.

David, we should... I really think we
should go to my lab. Tell him, Melanie.

Elevator going down.

How do you feel about beat poetry?

Deliver my sermon to my soul,
and Jack's soul, too...

and anyone who will listen.

Jack made a mean martini.

I knew a guy called Jack...

Would you like some eggs?
Have a tomato?

To look at the sunset
Over the box house hills and cry

ls that right? Yes. Where was I? Ahem.

You were never no locomotive, Sunflower

You were a sunflower

- This is delicious.
- Are you gonna eat any sausage?

What about your potatoes?

I know you're not a fan of mealtime.

Did you wanna...?

I'm good.

All right. Did you want something?

There's soup...

You left me.

I needed you and you left me.

Input error. Try again.

Input error. Try again.

Input error. Try again.

Input error. Try again.

Input error. Try again.

Input error. Try...

Excellent choice.

- I'm so...
- No.

- Sorry.
- Don't. Not here.

I should've told you about the man
and being adopted...

- The man?
- But you were so...

I mean, now I know you weren't sick
and you had this thing inside of you.

And the powers.
David, you have powers.

I know. I'm a mutant.

A mutant. But, no...

You should've come to live with me,
with Ben, with...

My God. I have to call Ben.

- Amy...
- No, he'll be so worried.

Amy, you can't. They're watching him.
Division 3. If you call him...

- An e-mail...
- David.

I could call from a payphone.

Just get some rest.

We'll figure this out.


Don't let it move around too much.
I don't know how stable the connection is.

Everything okay?

Not really. I think we should
get this out of me, fast.

I don't think it's too happy.

Come on, David,
we need to get you across to my lab.

Did I ever tell you a story
of the Lady and the Crane?

Many times, but tell me again.

David, you look well.

Love that headband.

I know. Me, not so good.

Third degree, thank you very much.

Really painful.

We have so much to talk about.

You can kill the others.
