It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with the antics of preorganizing my feed according to color but i can’t just help it. It’s so damn satisfying. The pink/purple posts are on the right, the yellow guys are in the middle, and the blanco/white posts are on the left. So soothing to scroll down my feed.
Give it a try for yourself. Check me out on instagram here at @Karl_Shakur
Remember that bit of chapter seven when Farouk/Lenny is pacing around growling “what did he do with it” over and over while getting increasingly more agitated? The he in question is undoubtedly(in my opinion) Charles Xavier, because Lenny/yellow eyed demon guy proceed to interrogate Amy about the night David came to live with the Hallers, asking if she saw his dad, and then remarking “yeah that’s him,” and then yelling “what did he do with it” some more. I’m not sure how deep I got into this the other day, but I inferred from this interaction that for some reason Charles had planted something in baby David’s mind, and then sent baby David somewhere so Farouk couldn’t find it. Apparently Professor X did a better job hiding whatever it was then David himself. That’s an alright theory, but is there any other proof? I think so. We know from the chalkboard sequence that Charles and Farouk duked it out, with Professor X winning and the Shadow King being ingloriously disembodied. Xavier is a pretty intelligent dude(massive understatement) and is moreover an extremely accomplished and powerful telepath(we know all this) who has been in combat scenarios before. Pretty sure he can tell, especially with another psychic, if a person is dead or not. Let’s assume that at the very least he suspects, which he clearly does because he sends his own baby away, that Farouk is not as dead as he would have hoped(yes that’s an emperor’s new groove reference). Why send David away? He’s defeated Farouk once, his chances of doing it again are pretty high. Plus Farouk, as has been stated in the episode, was very weak and needed a power source to latch onto. Wouldn’t it have been easier to prevent your newborn but very powerful mutant baby from your equally powerful but currently weak disembodied enemy if you, I don’t know, kept him with you so you could monitor the situation? Presumably Charles would know the signs of psychic infestation, and at least have an idea about how to stop it. At the very least poor David could have skipped all those years of being misdiagnosed. Hank’s rather smart, at least as smart as Cary Loudermilk, I’m sure he’d have been able to make a device similar to the halo Cary crafted. So the question is, why not take this approach? I think Charles hid something, i have no idea what, in David’s mind, that he didn’t want the Shadow King to find. But maybe he did want the Shadow King to know about it. Let’s be realistic, the Shadow King found David almost instantly(in the episode we see that David was a baby, but it was AFTER being dropped off, otherwise Lenny/S.K wouldn’t need to ask Amy about that night). But after thirty years of shared brainspace he still hasn’t found this whatever it is. If keeping David away from Farouk was his goal, then he failed spectacularly. IF that was his goal. Maybe(I’m just hypothesizing) Charles WANTED Farouk to find David, to know(or at least believe) that David has some sort of WHATEVER that Farouk desperately wants. At the very least he’d be able to keep tabs on the Shadow King. I dunno. It’s just a theory. I’ll prolly post a “BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE” blurb with whatever information I randomly remember that I left out.
