Could we be looking at parallel universes and time travel in the first season of Discovery? If we weren't having such fun, we'd be getting whiplash.
This is a well-directed episode. I keep praising the show's pacing because it's one of the few things I feel like I can praise, but even while the overall narrative construction and sense of coherent world aren't great, the pacing here is good.
Much of this episode is straight-up action, with two surprisingly well-choreographed battles between Lorca and Georgiou's forces - indeed, good fights have become an unlikely signature of STD.
I'm ready to see what happens, and yet I am in no way prepared to say goodbye to this show for months (possibly a year) until the second season.
This episode moves at a nice clip, with some great fights and acting. It's whenever anyone starts pontificating, reminding us that a lot of what's happening doesn't match up to the rest of the season, that it falls apart.
Everything seems to be coming together for Star Trek: Discovery plot-wise as we head into the final two episodes of the season.
For those taking notes, the latest episode of Star Trek: Discovery and its title showcased serious tributes to its predecessors. Not just one, but several.
Isaacs is such a brilliant actor and it was such a treat to see him make Lorca unlikable in the truly, well, likable Isaacs fashion.
With two episodes remaining in Discovery's first season, the show's various plot threads are starting to wrap up or converge.
While far too much happens in this show, everything which takes place is still fantastic and the series continues to improve week-on-week.
