"Project Daedalus" is a writers' room flex as the Discovery team delivers a gut wrenching character arc in a single episode.
The writers made sure we felt every moment that Airiam was in that airlock and ensured we were shaken as Michael.
It's a fairly miraculous feat, and continues Discovery's strong upward swing that began with last week's visit to Talos IV.
To go along with the excellent character work on display in this episode were some major, game-changing plot developments.
The tautly directed episode by franchise vet Jonathan Frakes also pulled the curtain back to reveal what certainly seems to be the Season 2 villain.
One problem: The Discovery writers have too often played with the emotions of their audience by killing off characters and bringing them back.
This should absolutely not be the last we see of Airiam, and if it is, I'll be very cross!
Between Section 31 and Control, there were two very different kinds of systems that Discovery could've really critiqued tonight-and it's a little sad that it chose the more comfortably sinister one to chase
This is just good, good stuff, the kind of writing that gives actors a chance to really dig in, while ensuring that the Big Moments, when they happen, have a context and depth beyond their initial pizazz.
A masterclass of how to write a great death.
Young Spock's portrayal will be divisive, but I've decided I'm into what Discovery's done with the character.
