“Legion” creator Noah Hawley recently spoke with our sister site TVLine about why the first glimpses of the Devil with the Yellow Eyes in the pilot were so chilling, and some of the inspirations behind the beast.

“It’s compelling because it’s such a horrifying image, and we know that it means something, but we don’t know what it means,” he said. “In the way, in ‘Twin Peaks,’ that those first images of Bob… you would see things. I talked a lot about how, in ‘Mulholland Drive,’ that scene in the [diner] is one of the scariest scenes ever committed to film. It’s daylight, it’s a conversation, there’s nothing frightening in it. But there’s something about the oddness, the uncanniness of the scene. So we always looked at that as an opportunity.”
