review by
Mike Haberfelner


The Discovery's still caught in the evil universe, and as Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) tries to get her hands on the exact location of where to transverse into their original universe again, she needs to deliver her mock prisoner, Captain Lorca (Jason Isaacs), to the Imperial Palace, where she meets the evil version of her former captain, Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh), again, who's Emperor in this universe. And somehow she can convince the Emperor that she's not actually from this universe, but does learn that Lorca, the Lorca from her universe, might actually always have been evil Lorca (or something). And somehow that piques the interest of the Emperor so much that she kills her lifeguard to ... oh really, I don't know.

Meanwhile on the Discovery, attempts are made to make Ash/Voq (Shazad Latif) all Klingon again, as his current state starts to tear him apart, and all hopes lie on the Discovery's Klingon prisoner L'Rell (Mary Chieffo), who has turned him human in the first place. And navigator Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp) is stuck in a coma and spore induced dreamworld, and trying to find a way out, he meets his evil self who's also stuck in this world - and who might be more help than could be expected, really ...

 

It's an episode that's pretty much all over the place, at times lacks logic, and the three narrative threads fail to work side by side as they lack a common interest. But that said, at least the story about Paul Stamets trying to make it out of his dreamworld is rather interesting, and even a bit creepy. On the other hand, the re-introduction of Philippa Georgiou is a bit far-fetched, especially since she's an interesting character anyways, even without too much intrigue around her. But maybe the main point of critique about this episode on its own is, too much is set up, too little resolved, and too little thought spent on homogenous writing.
