Join Brian, Jared, and Matt as they talk about episode 9 of Discovery, and since this is the Fall finale, we discuss our overall feelings about the show so far.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 1, Episode 9 – Debuted Sunday November 12th
Written by Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt
Directed by Chris Byrne
At The Disco 8: “Into the Forest I Go”
“Into the Forest I Go” had some very pleasing story lines come full circle, with Burnham returning to the Klingon “Ship of the Dead” and getting Captain Georgiou’s badge back, and looking like a badass taunting and fighting the Klingon leader Kol.
Shazad Latif delivers a compelling performance as the tortured and sexually abused Tyler. L’Rell’s actions continue to intrigue us and Mary Chiefo continues to deliver the most dimensional Klingon character in the series. We all agreed that the Klingon war arc so far has been a little unsatisfying, and that the show needs to do more “showing” and less “telling.” Stamets makes a huge sacrifice to make 133 spore drive jumps in rapid succession, and Lorca continues to surprise us and manipulate not just his crew, but also us the viewer.
Listen in to hear our thoughts on the mid-way point of the newest installment of the Star Trek franchise!
