This morning CBS released six new images from “Saints of Imperfection,” the fifth episode of the second season of Star Trek: Discovery, which feature the return of some familiar faces.
Burnham and the crew navigate a dangerous alien landscape in a race against time to save Tilly’s life, but Stamets is not at all prepared for what they find in the process. Section 31 is assigned to help track down Spock, much to Pike’s dismay.
One of the new images features Wilson Cruz as Culber. Shortly after the character of Dr. Hugh Culber was killed off last season, it was announced he would return. He has appeared in some mycelial visions since his death and showed up in a recording in the season two premiere, but Cruz has clearly stated he will be a main character in season two.
Last week Anthony Rapp spoke about Cruz returning to play Culber, saying:
It was really special. I was very, very happy for him. We knew it was going to happen, but I was very happy for him in the way that it happens and what he gets to do with that story, what I get to do with that story. It was very, very satisfying and rich, the way that it was brought to life by the writers. If this is going to happen – that he comes back in a way – the manner that he comes back, it has to have been earned. It has to be meaningful. It has to have consequences. And thankfully everyone on board said “yes” to that. I haven’t seen everything yet, because I have seen as many episodes as everyone in the world, I have seen four episodes. But I know what we shot, and I look forward to seeing how it came together.
