Critic Reviews for Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2

For better and worse, the perfect capper to the season.

Star Trek: Discovery capped off its sophomore season with a breathlessly paced finale packed with eye-popping visual effects.

The episode, a loud and clangy combustion of an already hard-to-follow season, was like Discovery's normal bombastic pitch turned up past eleven.

It's been 10 years since Star Trek reinvented itself on the big-screen - and with this finale, it's ready to head into the future, once again. Punch it.

Star Trek: Discovery's second season has come to an end, and it's ended with one hell of a bang. Several bangs, even. Actually, its season finale was approximately 90 percent bangs.

The writers of Discovery have led us on such an epic journey, and I'm at a point where I trust them completely. Wherever they lead us next season, I'm happy to follow.

It was an uneven finale for an uneven show. Season 2 was certainly an improvement on the first season but overall, "Discovery" still felt like it was trying to find its footing.

Not a single Trekkie could possibly know what's in store, and I couldn't be more elated at the prospect. We're going to the final frontier for real this time.

So Discovery has been a real weird Star Trek adventure so far, and this season was worse than the first one. Are there better days ahead?

Of all the different ways to try and re-establish continuity, I never guessed that Discovery would go and pull an Armin Tamzarian.

If you told me this time last season that Star Trek: Discovery would end its second season with a visually-stunning space skirmish that wouldn't forget its characters and plot in the process of trying to Be Super Cool, then I might not have believed you

But like much of this second season, it's also pretty effective, offering up nice character interplay, crazy visuals and effects, and some "whoa" moments of Star Trek grandeur.
