Star Trek Discovery slows down for an episode which deals with family drama and sets up some interesting plot points for next week.

We also learn some key details about Spock and Michael's backstories, but in a way that feels more like an informative update than organic storytelling.

One of my big hopes for Discovery's second season was that we'd learn more about the secondary bridge crew. The show has been doing exactly that, giving these "background" characters their opportunities to shine.

It's no coincidence that the strongest parts of the episode involve [Spock] and the Red Angel mystery.

Especially after the streak of excellent installments we've seen here on Star Trek: Discovery, "Light and Shadows" was, to put it as kindly as I know how, a clusterfrick.

Ultimately, neither storyline actually gets to do much than prep the audience for far more interesting stories to come.

Light and Shadows provides plenty to dig into and a bunch of fun scenarios

Any Disco episode with a Michelle Yeoh fight scene earns some grade inflation.

This is the first time, for me, that they have felt like a real family on Discovery. I hope this trend continues once Spock is, you know, present.

We'd always known Spock was ostracised for his mixed heritage, but making him a cross-species equivalent of dyslexic is an entirely new wrinkle. Personally, I love it.

There aren't many decisions here with the scope of last week's stupidity, and that's a relief.
