    ... I hope it's not Harry Mudd.

    It doesn't have to be Harry Mudd (as I posted here), just pointing out that the technology to hide your body shape exists, and was apparently invented for this season, and it could be anybody trying to fool the crew.

    That only leaves Michael and Tilly and I don't think it's either of them and if it's someone we've never seen before there'd be no reason to make the identity a mystery, they could just show a face or have Spock know her name.
    He referred to the angel as "she".

    Spock says, "she changed your fate." To Michael.

    Did Spock not refer to the Angel as "she" ?

    Someone we've seen before. Not a woman. A human from the future, elevated to new planes of existence, with a glorious shimmering beard. It's Wesley Crusher. The whole eradication of all sentient life thing was essentially one of his science experiments gone wrong. He feels real bad about it and is doing his best to fix it.

    In addition to the "she" in the previous episode, Peck off camera accidentally referred to the Red Angel as female before the season even started.

    I am 99% certain the Red Angel is female.

    Interestingly, it could actually be PU Georgiou, if you believe that the Red Angel started coming from a universe where Michael died as a child. No Burnham on the Shenzhou, no dead Georgiou.

    Tricky to answer. My guess is that it's Tyler. Now, I know that doesn't fit with the expectation that the RA is female. But, I have no better guess. He feels right for it to me.

    Here's who I think it is not: Airiam, Burnham, Amanda, Sarek, Spock, other crewmembers, etc.

    However, I don't think it's someone that we haven't seen. Pretty anti-climatic to build up a mystery and then reveal it's someone we don't know. I suppose they might go that route, but I'm guessing not.

    So, I don't have any good guess for who it is among from those we know. But, I don't think it's someone we haven't met yet. Difficult!

    I hope it's not Zora. Seeing her only in Calypso basically makes her someone we don't know. She does check some of the boxes. But, I hope they're not going that route. However, it might be their way of threading that needle for making it a surprise character who's not totally unknown. But, she might as well be an unknown character.

    Pike ordering the evacuation of the Discovery.
    Has me worried that there's a chance it's Zora. And, I suspect the rationale for including her in the poll.

    I'm not sure the show is even building up a mystery regarding the RA's identity that way. I think the possible end of all life and the circumstances are the real mystery. Whatever the case, I shall not be disappointed. :cool:

    I suppose that could be the case. But, the way they're revealing the details slowly (Angel appearance, time travel. human, suit, female, lonely, etc.) to me at least, suggests they're teasing the identity which only makes sense if it's someone we know. It doesn't have to be that, but then I think the reveal will fall a bit flat.

    At this point my guess would be Admiral Cornwall.

    Mainly because she apparently becomes a major player in tonight's episode and seems to be well informed as to everything that Section-31 is up to.
    She may also be trying to atone for past mistakes.

    And I think the suit is a Section-31 secret project.

    That's probably true. I suppose I may be concentrating more on the other questions to avoid hyping myself up too much about the RA's identity.

    I kind of like that guess! A character we know, yet not blatantly obvious. In my mind, she'd be a better reveal than Zora.

    Boringham... sorry Burnham. Why is the most obvious choice not even on the poll?

    Yeah, I think the identity of the Red Angel will be revealed by the end of this episode, or perhaps the next one. They're not going to tease it out through the end of the season.
