I don’t know what is going on with Jack either but I hope he is what we were led to believe (Picard’s son) and not a changeling cop out.Finally had time today to watch.
Guess we got the answer in the cameo.
Spoiler:So with the revelation of the Changelings evolution maybe that explains why their shape shifting looks different? At least it’s a bit of head canon I came up with.
I’m liking Shaw more every episode. His smart assery is awesome. I need to look into what else this actor has done.
Ro was awesome and I think it was a perfect end to the character and a tying up of her and Picard’s storyline. Really liked that she was Worf’s Handeler.
I can’t figure out Jack. That Crusher doesn’t know something is going on with him doesn’t seem right to me. I don’t mean him acting weird, it’s whatever secret is going on. I would think she would know.
Theory due to the whispering he hears that CC reveals is Crusher’s voice. That he is a Changeling and doesn’t know it. Like the link is calling out to him in his mother’s voice. That backed up with him knowing people are Changelings, and that one crew member who said he knows what he is in his vision. Only thing not making sense is his eyes going red.
I loved seeing the non Starfleet side of things this week. The Logical Vulcan gangster was amazing IMO. Even if the Worf bluff was able to be seen a mile away. Leaning real hard into the stereotypical warrior monk stuff. Although I did love him sparring Raffi and his one handed easy blocking of her attacks.
We are pass due for a Geordi appearance.
The return of Ro Laren was unexpected and a welcome surprise (Michelle Forbes looks great). I’m not really sure I buy the whole story about how she got back into Starfleet (again) given her twice stained record but it’s not a big deal. The exchange between her and Picard made this episode and it was a nice callback to Preemptive Strike of TNG.
Her sacrifice at the end really upped the conspiracy factor, it’s going to be interesting to see how one ship takes on a comprised Starfleet.
Has it hit anyone yet that we only have 4 more episodes left before this ride comes to an end? Enjoy it while it lasts.
