If you are all caught on the twisting, turning events of Season 1 of FX’s Legion, but need a refresher on just what the hell happened, a new video released today is just what you’re looking for. This Season 1 recap comes courtesy of the network and attempts to encapsulate all of the insanity of the Marvel Television series’ first season in about three minutes of edited footage. While the major plot point are (kind of) clarified here, the details remain murky as the recap video itself descends into the madness that made Noah Hawley‘s series adaptation so entertaining and frustrating to watch. It’s a nice reminder that more of this crazy, trippy experience is on the way.
Legion stars Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Amber Midthunder, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, and Jemaine Clement. Season 2 premieres April 3rd on FX.
Check out the madcap recap below:

Legion follows the story of “David Haller,” a man who believed he was schizophrenic but discovered he might be the most powerful mutant in the world. With help from a team of specialists, David harnessed his unique abilities and learned he’d been haunted by a malicious parasite. Now, David is all that stands in the way of “Amahl Farouk” from attaining infinite and world-ending power.
