Chapter 1 is the series premiere of Legion that aired on February 8, 2017. It is also the first episode of Season 1.


David considers whether the voices he hears might be real.


A montage of David Haller's life is shown, starting from infancy and ending right as he attempts to hang himself as a young adult. As a result of this suicide attempt, David is admitted to Clockworks Psychiatric Hospital. His sister, Amy Haller, visits on his birthday and offers him a chocolate cupcake, but David tells her he is not allowed to eat it. When Amy asks him if they threw a party, David remarks that it is simply another Thursday for him at the hospital. While she says that his mental health appears to be improving, David sees an old man and an old woman giggling from the corner of the room. He asks Amy when he can return home, but she responds by inquiring about his doctor's opinion. David states that they simply up his dosage if he claims to "see" things. Amy promises to put a good word in as she absentmindedly eats frosting off the chocolate cupcake. David asks her how it tastes, but a staff member interrupts them by saying that it is time for David to take his medication. Before he leaves, David tells Amy that something new needs to happen.
