I don't think Mojo would fit. The blobby monster doesn't really look that much like Mojo (who has plenty of cybernetics including mechanical spider feet, and those iconic huge teeth) and it wouldn't fit the idea of Mojo's character. (Mojo is the leader of a planet/alternate universe with a themes like slavery, television as mind control for the masses, popularity ratings as a basis of government etc.)

I'm not sure any the personalities we've seen are The Monster as such. The whole point of Legion is that he's got a whole bunch of people inside his head. (Hence the name.)

I'll spoilertag some commentary based on the comics, which not everyone will probably be familiar with.

Just rewatched the sixth episode. So good. Very David Lynch.

What a slow but beautiful pace this show has. Downright terrifying moment as well. Ending of episode six had some fantastic revelations but had you asking more.

Cary & Kerry are brilliant too.

The classroom scene was brilliant, even more when juxtaposed with the silent movie scenes after. Don't know who exactly is responsible for the episode and how those scenes worked out but show creator Noah Hawley is a brilliant brilliant man.

Season final wasn't as strong as the last couple of episodes. Still, one of my favourite series in a long time.

Did anyone else know that season 2 started yesterday? I just saw something online and had no idea that season 2 had just started. Is it me or was there a lack of promotion for the start of season 2? Now I have to go hunt the first episode online.

I posted about it last night in the TV thread, but didn't look for it's own thread - sorry LockedOut.

The debut really hits the ground running and dives right back into the wild and weird Legion landscape.

I re-watched the entirety of Season 1 when FX marathoned it on the weekend, and enjoyed it a lot more than my first viewing, which I found a bit too chaotic.

I'm looking forward to season 2, but will wait at least a couple of weeks so I can watch multiple episodes in succession, rather that 1 hour per week.

Well, after 2 episodes I can say it's still weird

It feels more self-indulgently weird than the first season, and the novelty has somewhat ran out. But I'm still enjoying it, at least so far. It's nice to have something so unique on TV.

Haven't seen nearly as much Legion talk for Season 3, either here or other places I frequent online. It's been a great continuation of the series and it's heading for a great big finale. I wonder if people skipped out on it because they know it's the final season, and very unlikely to ever be acknowledged in the larger MCU canon (like the similar reason Dark Phoenix was largely ignored in theatres this summer)?
