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.
