This was kind of a change of pace after last week’s terrific episode. It’s clearly the calm before the mid-season break storm, but it was still underwhelming. There was some great character development with Saru and that’s about it.
Fair Warning: This episode contained so many things that I adore, that judging it objectively isn’t something I’m even going to attempt. This is the episode that made me go from loving the show, to pestering people to watch it.Â
The series just gets better and better each episode and I particularly enjoyed the character development in this one.
The Discovery’s dark and gritty because Lorca can’t stand the light. I cannot believe it took me until the show pointed an enormous neon sign to the fact. I’m disappointed in myself and you should all boo in my general direction. (Get yourself a compass, locate Greece on a map, and proceed accordingly).
I refuse to call the tardigrade Ripper, so it will be referred to as Jack from here on out.
So this is Discovery.
You ready nerds?
Did this episode leave anyone else feeling kinda blue?
Does Daenerys come off looking like a little girl stomping her foot and killing people when things don’t go her way? Yes. Is she different than literally anyone else that’s tried to hold a position of power in Westeros? No. Welcome to an episode that should have been about how the monarchy is bad, but was instead about Daenerys the Mother of all Tyrants. (That’s what Cersei’s for you guys!)
