The last part of this analysis will be focused on supporting a certain fan theory, so if you want to avoid potentialÂ spoilers, look away.
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?
