Warning! The next incorporates spoilers for the mid-season finale of Star Trek: Discovery. Learn at your individual threat!
Star Trek: Discovery‘s midseason finale went stay on CBS All Entry final evening, and it was a wild one! Michael Burnham took on Kol, Stamets goes by means of some thangs, and a Klingon spoke English (due to a common translator). Past all that, there have been two game-changing moments from this episode that can give followers one thing to consider whereas ready for extra episodes to premiere January seventh. Primarily, what is going on on with Klingon captive L’Rell and Lieutenant Ash Tyler, and the place did the Discovery find yourself?
What’s Going On With L’Rell And Ash?
Ash’s demanding time in captivity with L’Rell was a giant a part of the midseason ender, and Star Trek: Discovery followers bought a glimpse of precisely what Lieutenant Tyler did to outlive. Haunted by nightmares of torture and sexual favors to forestall extra of it, Tyler heads to the brig to confront his captor. Sadly, Tyler did not get the solutions he hoped for, with L’Rell telling the lieutenant she’ll “By no means allow them to damage you.” Non-conveniently for viewers, any additional questioning is halted by an alert to the bridge.
Is L’Rell taking part in head video games along with her former captive, or was there one thing extra significant behind these phrases? Star Trek: Discovery followers have lengthy theorized Ash Tyler is definitely the ousted Klingon chief Voq in disguise, however this episode did quite a bit to point out that if that idea is true, Tyler himself doubtless has no clue. Remember that L’Rell instructed Voq he must hand over “every part” for her plan to work. Did that embrace his identification and sense of self? What good would brainwashing a Klingon and making him look human do in direction of ending this struggle? Regardless of the reasoning, L’Rell purposely transported herself to the Discovery alongside Tyler, so she must be planning one thing.
The place Is The Discovery?
The tip of “Into the Forest I Go” reveals the Discovery trying to journey to a starbase when one thing went haywire with Stamets, and the ship appeared in one other unknown location. It isn’t the primary time a Starfleet ship has been transported to a spot of undiscovered origin, however the plot thickened when Saru introduced he could not determine the place the Discovery is, adopted by Lorca declaring they’re surrounded by Klingon wreckage. Is the crew someplace additional on in deep house, or did they journey some place else fully?
It is doubtless not coincidental that Stamets‘ unhealthy response after his spore-drive leap occurs very shortly earlier than Star Trek: Discovery followers realized this new info. Since Stamets ties into the entire mirror universe nod from an earlier episode, and with the Discovery surrounded by heaps of Klingon wreckage in unknown house, it seems as if the collection may choose up with the crew stranded within the Mirror Universe. CBS type of spoiled this potential reveal previous to their midseason finale, and Jonathan Frakes teased an arc within the collection would take care of the Mirror Universe, so it nearly appears apparent that is the place the present will choose up in 2018. Until it does one thing else fully.
Star Trek: Discovery will return to CBS All Access on January seventh, 2018, persevering with what has been an exciting Season 1. Hopefully, the second half is simply as nice as the primary, because the present is already signed on for Season 2, and there is a lot extra that Star Trek followers may see.
