    The reasons for the signals appearing where they do are still a mystery. I hope that's resolved next episode.

    That began to mimic Leland just before the eye thing and responded to Ash that he had the power needed to close the rift. Leland was on the floor and out of action

    Who was the voice that told Ash he had the power or whatever?

    Yeah, that's where I was. There were so many meh parts of the episode (Ash/Michael, Saru/Leland, the Red Angel infodump near the start of the episode) and so many fantastic parts (Spock/Burnham, Culber/Cornwell, everything in the last 10 minutes, etc). But it did all average out in the end.

    I do not share the love for this episode. Halfway through, I pushed the fast forward to see the ending.

    What did happen to Leland at the end?

    I assume Control killed him or took him over. In the novel version, Control is in all Federation tech so I imagine it’s something similar here.

    At first glance, I thought it was Georgiou...Prime.

    I had decided the Red Angel couldn’t be Michael early on. How could she trap herself when future Michael would already have known about the plan and the conversation because she was there for it? Michael’s mother has an obvious reason for doing anything and everything to save her child. She’s saving the universe and warning everyone in the process of saving Michael — therefore, Michael’s Mom was the Red Angel. There’s a nice parallel there with the moment Michael died and Sarek gave up a piece of his katra to save her.

    I did think some of the scenes were rushed. Mirror Georgiou is not entirely convincing in her feelings for Michael. Didn’t she used to be a monster? I did like Spock’s scenes with Michael and Michael and Ash Tyler.

    It's funny how the time crystal powering the suit ends up with Picard...

    You don't believe me?

    I gave it an 8. A lot of good parts and the reveal was unexpected. For a half second I though it was SMG in "old age" make up.

    Awesome episode; 9/10. Pretty sure Wilson Cruz just got dressed at home, then walked on set and did his scenes.

    She still is.
    But even monsters can care about people and things.

    They had to bring back the Orcs for the next episode. We were doing so well.

    1. They're not Orcs, so don't call them that.
    2. It appears to be a flash back to the attack on the science station that killed (well we had assumed) Michael's mother.

    Need a powerful telescope to look from Niagara Falls to the French invasion of Russia.

    I really loved the lighting on the ready room and Cornwell's quarters this episode.

    Good question. Very good question.
