I think he could be spot on, but knowing Legion there's likely a much deeper meaning. Let's not forget all the symbols throughout the first season, including the (changing) ones on David's shirt.
For those unfamiliar with The Prisoner, it's widely regarded as one of the greatest TV shows of all time. Polygon ran an article last year about why fans of Legion in particular would enjoy it: https://www.polygon.com/tv/2017/3/6/14828282/legion-the-prisoner-noah-hawley
His theory seems like really reaching to me and I seriously doubt it. I think it's just there are 6 new characters or something like that.
I think it's something deeper (6 people we know are actually his personalities, Shadow King is inside of 6 people, etc). In season 1 and 2, there are different symbols on David's shirt throughout. Not randomly, the symbols change after certain major events involving David. Including triangle, and 2 triangles. Now a 6 sided shape. The numbers 3 and 6 certainly have a meaning.
Your "6 new characters are introduced" seems wayyy too simple and straightforward. You've watched the show, right???
I agree. Iirc, in season 1, when talking to Cary in the astral plane, Oliver said something along the lines of "he's [Farouk] putting all his energy into tricking David. Didn't think to take care of his six... wait, what do I mean by six?" - this "6" secret has been planned out right from the very beginning, and it's something to do with Farouk's endgame
Holy shit... I rewatched that the other day and didn't even think twice about it. Wow, good job
What if Farouk was trapped in David’s mind and used the 6 characters as a means to escape from David’s mind? You would think Farouk would have just jumped to another body after being drugged in clockworks. I could maybe see that he got trapped after David hung himself somehow. Farouk only killed the eye (an external entity), no one else.. Even when Melanie got “shot” by Farouk he could have easily killed her like he did when controlling David and killing all the d3 mercenaries.
Yes I have watched the show. And characters can be facets of the Shadow King or eventually become David's controlled personalities. Nothing in the term "character" excludes those things
Also, six previews :D
There's also many hexagons.
If you clicked the imgur album, you'd find a compilation of photos with regular and irregular hexagons ;)
Syd is wearing a hexagon pendant in one of the previews.
