At The Disco 8: “Into The Forest I Go”

Star Trek: Discovery Season 1, Episode 9 – Debuted Sunday November 12th

Written by Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt
Directed by Chris Byrne

Join us as Brian, Jared, and Matt talk episode 9 of Discovery, and since this is the Fall finale, we discuss our overall feelings about Discovery so far.

“Into the Forest I Go” had some very pleasing story lines come full circle, with Burnham retuning to the Klingon “Ship of the Dead” and getting Captain Georgiou’s badge back, while 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 Chieffo 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, we really needed 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.

And of course we talk about that last fateful jump, what it means for the crew and just where they might be now, as we anxiously await for the return of Star Trek Discovery in January. 

Listen in to hear our thoughts on the mid-way point of the newest installment of the Star Trek franchise!
