= SHADOW KING!!

So yeah, the Yellow-Eyed Demon is actually Amahl Farouk, the Shadow King. If you read our spoilers reveal earlier this week, this didn’t come as a surprise, but it’s a really big deal. Farouk is a real threat to David (in the comics, he put David in a years-long coma), and judging from the final shots from the episode, he isn’t going down without a fight.

However, that’s not the only major thing we learned this week. We also know that Charles Xavier is actually David’s father, as revealed through a combination of David’s chalkboard recreation of his origin story and Professor X’s wheelchair in Lenny’s psychotic visions. This isn’t a big reveal for fans of the comics, since it’s a key part of his story, but it’s still freaking cool. Could it mean Professor X makes an appearance in a future episode of Legion? Fingers crossed Patrick Stewart walks back his whole “retirement/” thing!
