Legion (2017–…): Season 3, Episode 5 - Chapter 24 - full transcript

David seeks to recover the time traveler that Cary took. The others retreat into low space orbit to try and evade combat. Farouk undermines their plan by contacting and taunting David via telepathy. Some characters are killed or kill themselves, some lose their minds.

Tangentially on Legion...


- (laughter)
- Where's Switch?

He took her. The scientist.

Cary? Took...

(whispers): You, you
want me to come with you?

Where we're going,
you won't have to hide.

Nothing that hurts me is real.

- (thunder crashes)
- I am God.

Thank you.

- LENNY: For what?
- Always being there for me.


Here's the thing, I'm gonna
need you to take me back.

- Not far.
- I don't, I don't think
I can do another...

You're not gonna
lose any more...

I'm sorry.

It was too far.

My dad collects robots.

Sometimes, at
night, I go in there,

pretend I'm a robot, too.

Do you believe that
I'm a good person?

That I deserve love
just like everybody else?

Of course.

Because we can fix this world.

All the bad things.

We just got to start over.

I thought I was a narcissist.

Leave Daddy alone.

No, it's okay.

They killed my family.

We are your family.

Now get it in gear.

We got to go get Switch.

She's in the lab.

Did you ever think
you'd go to space?

Why would you do that,

You're gonna find her anyway.

- No, no.

I listened to you.

I trusted you.

It's not fair.

I was jealous.

Of myself. Isn't that crazy?

I should have trusted you.

But she showed
me things. Melanie.

You mean Farouk
showed you things.

He put ideas in my head
that you betrayed me,

that you were evil.

And I believed him.

Now look at us.

You left me.

To be with you.

Well, it doesn't matter.

'Cause you're gonna
change everything.

So none of this will happen.

We'll never meet.

I'm gonna undo all

Oh, such language.

When did you
become so uncivilized?

When you ruined my life.

Because you hate me.

hating you would
be like hating myself.

You were always so good at that.
