This isn't a spoiler since no one knows what's going to happen, but as an X-men fan from way back I have a pretty strong guess who the yellow-eyed demon is.

Wow. That season finally was excellent. I have no idea what is going on for the most part (don't know any of the backstory), but that was some awesome TV right there. Last 20-30 minutes were epic and Aubrey Plaza has been amazing in this. Was never really a fan of her in the other shows she has been in, but love her in this.

Usually not a fan of stuff that is as schizophrenic as this, with all the jumping around timelines, astral planes, etc., but this I have really enjoyed. I am really glad they pulled everything back together in the end and were able to setup for next season.

i liked the nice little professor x easter egg in there and the segment where it went to silent film style was cool. If nothing else the show is very stylish

That wasn't the finale. At least I assume that's what that fuggin typo is.

Yes it was a typo and you are correct, that was not the season FINALE. You are a little grumpy today.

Glad to see they will still use Aubrey Plaza next season (at least the end seemed indicate that). I liked the use of Pink Floyd during the exorcism scene.

Their music choice has been on point all season long, as well as whoever is scoring the thing (loved the music during Oliver's conducting scene last week(pretty sure that's vague enough to not spoil anything)). They kind of had me from the get go by opening with the Who.

Looking forward to next Feb

the music and the VISUALS really made this series. along with Aubrey Plaza, of course. she was entertaining as hell. Flight of the Conchords' Jermaine Clement was awesome too.

I grew up reading parts of the original X-Men comics around the era of the Legion storyline. I remember the character being really insane and the comics having lots of layers upon layers of telepathic fudge. I began leaning more towards X-Force/New Mutants around that time i think... regardless, for the creators to dig deep into the X-Men world and choose this character, of the thousands possible, for a TV show, was pretty ballsy. I think they pulled it off pretty well.
