Georgiou, helped L'Rell, Tyler, and their baby son in "Point of Light". She stopped Kol'Sha from killing them, and she found a way to keep Tyler and the baby alive. She also helped L'Rell to retain power in the Klingon Empire with her plan, and that makes a huge difference because without L'Rell, someone worse would be in charge of the Klingon Empire, who would likely be quick to go back into war with the Federation. Georgiou helped Burnham to rescue Spock in "If Memory Serves". She was helping herself by making Leland look bad, but she was still helpful to Burnham and her mission of rescuing Spock from Section 31. Georgiou was nominally on the Discovery's side when stopping Control in "Such Sweet Sorrow". Georgiou is the one who saved Saru and Tilly's bacon in "Far From Home". Georgiou is the one who cut to the chase and exposed that the people attacking Earth in "People of Earth" were really Humans living on Saturn's moon, Titan. Georgiou helps Burnham rescue Book from The Emerald Chain in "Scavengers", which also brings them a step closer to uncovering what happened in The Burn. So Georgiou also tried to help. And I just gave you several examples (that I'm sure you'll try to find a way to move the goalposts with). The only difference is, you like Garak, and he's a character from the '90s, a time that gives you the warm fuzzies because that's when you were young, so he gets a pass. Oh, please. You're letting your liking the character get in the way again. He did horrible things, we just don't know the context or if they were fair game. But there's no doubt he probably did things where you'd clutch your pearls and be like, "Oh no! Not our Garak!" Some of what he probably did was probably justified, some of it probably not. The storytelling rules are different when it's Bad Guys vs. Bad Guys instead of Good Guys vs. Bad Guys. For the record: I like both Garak and Georgiou. It's Dukat who I don't like, but (other than that weird stage in the middle of the series) I'm not supposed to like Dukat, and it's not what the creators of the show intended, so I don't take issue with that.
