    Stamets, who's developed godlike ESPer powers and will terrorize the ship.

    We need to find a boulder quick!

    Well, at least now you know Lorca's middle initial must be "R."

    The antagonist would be rest of the Klingons who are still heck-bent on fighting the Federation despite having one of their ships destroyed.

    Armus, who will be the in-universe stand-in for all the butthurt and fanrage.

    That's a good question. Was L'Rell planning on getting on Discovery all along? Is that why she kidnapped Lorca? She wanted to get Ash onto Discovery, but she couldn't have known about Cornwell, or any of the other sequence of events that brought her there...right???
    L'Rell wants the Albino to rule Klingondom(maybe? And who made the Albino leader anyway? He was a nobody, and had just met T'Kuvma). Was she an actual follower of T'Kuvma, or was she there with ulterior motives from the start? Is L'Rell an all powerful space wizard?
    Why did Kol spout off T'Kuvma's slogans? He doesn't care about his cause, or the Federation, or Klingon klingogeny, or even the war. He just wanted power for himself, and hated T'Kuvma(and his band of disciples).

    I think the "war arc" is basically over. Lorca is the villain, as he is a deceiver.

    Does there need to be a primary antagonist? Clearly L'Rell will be an issue going forward, but maybe the crew's "antagonist" will be themselves — literally or figuratively — as they deal with whatever they find out there.

    Well then, specifically, it's from the 2nd movie, The Chamber of Secrets.

    Sure, but with all the aesthetic changes in this show, Armus would look like this

    Mirror Universe Lorca would be cool. But I also believe that there doesn't necessarily need to be a primary antagonist when there are only a few episodes left. The biggest problem could be whatever messed up mechanism got the ship lost in space/time, and figuring out how to defeat it.

    I envision the human/federation equivalent of this:

    The Mirror Discovery. Wait till you see Mirror Lorca in a sleeveless tunic and Tyler with a scar.

    The ghost of Gene Roddenberry. He’ll demand all the women wear miniskirts and finally depict his dream of an all nude Risa.

    At the end of the season finale it will be revealed scooby doo style that the ghost of gene roddenberry was actually rick berman in a costume.
