No one is taking away your ability to critique the episode. I think that there are several people here who did not like the episode who are nonetheless batting away some very aggressive critiques. Your own attention to crying in Discovery is also very problematic. You've tried to delegitimize crying in this last episode. Burnham cried three times. First, she learns the fate of her (foster) brother. Second, she is reunited with her mother. Third, she finds that her inner motives and feelings have been publicly exposed. Without a doubt, that's a lot of crying for <60 minutes. The episode's writer perhaps should have mixed things up, find some other ways of showing the actors revealing their emotions, especially if some dramatic moments will be more important than others. Each of these moments is regardless a legitimate reason to cry, whether in fiction or in real life. You, yourself, said that the crying in the episode was not "apt." That's BS. Indeed, I think it would be expected that these would all be moments in which characters might be expected to cry, and throughout Star Trek, crying has not been confined to mourning. In the episode that I referenced, Emissary, Sisko cries because he realizes he can't move on. There are plenty of other motivations for crying as well. It would have been better had these emotional moments had been spread out among several episodes--and I would agree it would have made these episode if that had been the case--but the crying is fully apt.
