 Star Trek: Discovery |  2 × 07 - Light and Shadows

After a long journey, Star Trek: Discovery makes us meet with Spock, at the same time that it places Discovery in front of a temporal gap that could end the fate of the entire crew.

SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.

All the science and explanations of time travel, wormhole, temporal whirlwind, it was very interesting, it put the characters out of a bubble that were kind of calm, as they start to move in a totally unknown field, but very much approached by Science fiction.

While Tilly and Stamets rush to use his knowledge with the tardigrades for knowledge of dimensions, Pike and Tyler continue a very complicated fight, as they both almost disregard each other’s command. It is nice to see Pike assume that he always acts for the greater good because he was not present in the war, while Tyler shows that he has nobility in saving him from being split in half.

At the end of the episode, with everything resolved, behold, the crack and the space probe that they themselves sent and returned 500 years from the future modified, ends up processing something on the computer screen, which ends up messing with Airiam, and it should bring problems …

And after waiting a long time, behold, we found Spock in a very unlikely place, but quite a cliché. Amanda took her son to a room at a Volcano sanctuary and was hidden there, and only with Michael does she open up. It was interesting to see the two talking about human emotions, while with Sarek came the logical part, even if it puts everything at a loss.

So we have Michael discovering the number that Spock kept repeating as a location, but he was backwards, only that after going through trouble needing to escape from Section 31. Sarek handed the children over to Leland, and unsurprisingly, Georgiou released Michael and the brother, since she always does her best to show her daughter’s “mirror” that she has changed, in a way.

While Michael and Spock escape to a planet, Talos, Georgiou was put against the wall by Leland, but she ends up turning the tables by asking him if he imagines Michael’s reaction to knowing that he was responsible for the death of her parents.

Star Trek: Discovery enters its 2nd half of the season and I’m already waiting for more drama, adventure and some answers. Ah! And a Spock that reaches at least the feet of the original.
