NOTE: Article contains spoilers for Sunday’s episode of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’
A couple of actors are out and about talking about tomorrow’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery. We have gathered together some of the key highlights.
Shazad Latif on what’s next for Tyler and Voq.
The big reveal that Tyler is actually Voq from last week’s episode has thrown a major change into the show, leading to queestions about what’s next for the character. Speaking to the New York Post, Shazad hints at what’s left of Tyler following Voq’s re-awakening in last week’s episode
NYP: Will the real, physical Tyler ever return?
Latif: Not melded with Voq? The next episode is exploring exactly that.
In the preview trailer for “Vaulted Ambition” we can see Tyler struggling in sickbay. Latif talked to Bustle about how as an actor he appreciated these scenes:
“The med bay scenes are my favorite to film, because it’s just about characters being vulnerable. It’s not me playing the action hero dude. You’re seeing a man in a vulnerable place. You can see him be weak, and crying, and upset. It’s exploring that side of masculinity and just exploring the self in that way.”
The fly in the ointment for L’Rell’s plan to trigger Voq and use him to get the secrets of the USS Discovery was Tyler’s relationship with Michael Burnham. Speaking to ABC Radio, Latif talks about what’s next for this couple:
“We see the fallout between Michael and Tyler and how they’re gonna deal with this, ’cause they still have to carry on working together — there’s stuff to do!” Latif laughs. “They’ve got to go and sort out this Terran Empire…so yeah, there’s a lot to come!”
Wilson Cruz on the return of Culber
As has been already announced, the death of Dr. Culber in episode 10 wasn’t the last time we would see Wilson Cruz this season. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor talked about his return in this Sunday’s episode. From the report:
“This episode really sets [Stamets] up for the heroic journey that he’s about to embark on, but also sets up the fact that there are a multitude of possibilities for Dr. Culber going forward,” the 44-year-old actor hinted, potentially leaving the door open for future appearances.
“They’re so tender and sweet and also so fragile,” Cruz said, adding that he enjoyed reuniting with Anthony Rapp. “I think they exemplify that this couple and their love goes beyond even this mortal coil. It transcends time and space.”
Episode 12 of Star Trek: Discovery will be available on CBS All Access on Sunday, January 21st by 8:30 pm ET. It will air in Canada on the Space Channel at 8:00 pm ET the same day and be available on Netflix outside the USA and Canada on Monday, January 22th at 8 am GMT.
