Still no Spock, but "Point of Light" comes through with a surprise entrance that makes up for spotty storytelling and the episode's strange fascination with decapitation.
It was an episode that further laid out the components of this season's mystery, so for that, it was worth the watch.
For all the nightmare stuff Michael goes through this episode, her brief moment with Tilly after her bridge-freakout is such a great little moment of warmth.
It gave Mary Wiseman some great moments to play, including a terrific scene with Sonequa Martin-Green where they puzzled out Tilly's problem through tears, science, and friendship.
Discovery continues the serialized mystery here by character assassinating not one, but two The Original Series characters; giving us a Klingon soap opera that works on zero levels.
It offered crowded, haphazard and choppy storytelling with bold choices that depart from historic Trek norms. (A suggested decapitation? Yikes!)
I've gotta admit that Emperor Georgiou's surprise entrance, like some sort of avenging Enfys Nest/Boba Fett hybrid, was positively delightful.
Osunsanmi (who's also an executive producer this season) has a playful eye for scene construction, and a gift for infusing conversation scenes with kinetic wit.
Having a character with mixed DNA, who crucially can "pass" as one species only, is an interesting angle that hasn't specifically been explored in Star Trek.
It's not all bad as long as the show uses each decoy as an opportunity to bring otherwise overlooked characters into focus.
Best part, hands down, was Georgiou's return as a Section 31 operative.
