    Since it looks like this week’s discussion thread is has not yet been posted, I’ll leave this here for now. If there’s a way to shift it over to the thread once it’s created, that’d be awesome. If not, I’ll copy and paste.

    I’m less than 15 minutes in, and there’s one detail that is getting majorly overlooked by the crew, and it’s bugging the $#!^ out of me. If what they say is true, and Burnham is the Red Angel, WHY are they having discussions and making complex schemes to trap her WHILE SHE’S IN THE ROOM??? If she is instrumental in the creation of the plan, wouldn’t her future self be able to side-step it with ease?? I’m obviously going to continue watching, and I hope this gets mentioned. If not, that kinda smacks of lazy writing.

    I am so glad that the Red Angel is not Burnham. Not only because I had the same thoughts you did, but also, I want to be surprised for once by ST:DSC. Also, there were parts that just didn’t fit with the Burnham theory which we discusses last week.

    I liked the conversation between Spock and Burnham. That was touching. I also liked the scene in sickbay where Spock brought up her survivor’s guilt. That was a much needed laugh. Also, all the laughs Tilly continues to provide.

    I liked the scenes with Culber. I’m glad they are doing this storyline properly, even if it’s not getting enough screen time. The scene with Stamets, Georgiou and Culber was hilarious and excellent of the writers dropping in the term pansexual.

    Even though it caused me to exclaim, “Well shit!” when the eyeball puncture a la Borg took out Leland, that was a great “Well, I didn’t see that coming” moment, too.

    I’m not sure how I feel about Tyler and Burnham getting back together. But their relationship never made sense to me to begin with.

    There was also a few more “The needs of the many” themes in this episode. And while it would have been nice to get to know Airium better before she died, the funeral was a nice prologue. And I don’t think that’s the last we’ll see of her after they torpedoed her a la Spock at the end of TWAK.

    Same thoughts during the first minutes, and feeling myself like an oracle. I already pictured us discussing whether it was a plot hole or a “paradox” thing. But what actually happened was quite a surprise, and a good one.

    I really love how ambivalent some roles are portrayed, especially Ash Tyler and Philippa Georgiou. I always have mixed feelings watching them.

    My article is a bit late this week because of an unexpected event yesterday. I’m currently writing it up and had the following thought: What if during the process of erasing Airium’s memories, part of her consciousness didn’t get erased and she’s the one who took out Leland because her connection with Control would have given her the knowledge that Section 31 thinks Burnham is the Red Angel and Section 31 responsible for her parents’ death?
