Well.. they solved the Lorca situation pretty quickly, left no chance for a comeback either. Still disappointed they couldn't pull the doc back somehow. Let see how many episodes the emperor last!
spoilers.....

lorca kind of fell apart going into the heart of the spore sphere thing. maybe he didn't die but got sucked into it, or alternatively maybe he did die, but we encounter the other version of him?

I had also assumed maybe we'd run into the doppelganger of the doctor.

They should've reused the 60's Trek fight music



I can't see myself being satisfied with how the show wraps up with only two episodes left



Don't bring your evil step mom home!

Seems like he is pushing daisies. Man - I was really expecting (more like hoping) more with him.

Can anyone clarify - did I imagine it, or did they not specify (when we first entered mirror verse) that the mirrorverse Discovery switched places with ours?

I dunno, this is Star Trek. Dead people come back all the time!

I remember that yah, so you'd think there would be a history when they got back of the other discovery wreaking havoc in their home universe...

For some reason I also thought Stamitz (the engineer?) had switch bodies when they came out of sporeland, but I totally remembered that wrong, because it was never referenced this week.

who else was surprised a the flexibility of Michelle Yeoh?... She managed to kick Lorca when he was behind her!... Unless it was a fake leg.... Maybe she'll be the new "captain" of discovery! Although she seems way to evil for that. I vote for timeline reset after stealing spores from Mirror-discovery!

That was a pretty awesome leg kick.
Might be time to give Crouching Tiger a re-watch.

Perhaps hes kept on ice somewhere in the original universe. ... again.. if they're gonna pull some sort of shenanigans, bring the doc back somehow!

There's some good details here that came out on After Trek.
https://trekmovie.com/2018/01/29/jason- ... -and-more/

Like how Jason Isaacs knew he was Mirror Lorca from the beginning while the rest of the cast did not and some discussion on Prime Lorca and that one little green spore.

No of course not, It's Michelle Yeoh! She's phenomenal. Jason Isaacs said she learned and nailed the action choreography perfectly in their fight scenes. She even gave the prop department tips on how to build a better Emperor's sword.

We've come a long way since Kirk-fu and the Trek Double Fisted Hammer of Doom.
