When Lorca thaws his cronies with plans to move forward with a coup, Burnham has to vent to save herself. But when Tilly and Stamets figure out how to destroy the Charon and get home in one maneuver, it’s time to throw caution to the wind and hug Pippa. Is the lesser of two evils still evil? How many soliloquies is too many? Is Stamets a Wyld Stallyns fan?

Is it the farmed or the fresh ganglia that taste the best? It’s the episode that tells the truth as a last resort.

When our undercover team discovers the rebel base, it’s time for Burnham and Tyler to break bread with Firewolf, Son of None. But when Tyler acquiesces to Kahless it’s time to crack skulls and bust out the Mek’leths. Does Burnham have the strength to carry on? Will Stamets make his way through the forest? Is Lorca’s sense of humor a tad rude?

It’s the episode that lays on the exposition but keeps up with the expedition.

It’s the episode that sides with the empire, but dreams of the resistance.

When Starfleet asks for the U.S.S. Discovery to stand down at Pahvo, Lorca decides that instead he'll have his crew crack T'Kuvma's math. But when Burhnam and Tyler sneak around the Klingon death ship, Ash finds himself trapped by P.S.T.D. Can Bob help them escape? Why doesn't L'Rell wear safety glasses?

It's now up to Stamets to float on a fourth dimensional mushroom to help save the day. Will the time-loop continue? How good is Tilly at beer pong? Ash and Michael, will they? won't they? It’s the episode where they didn’t call the Beastie Boys *or* French Stewart.

But when Admiral Bob questions Lorca's tactics she ends up the only Starfleet member on a Klingon Ship who retains their head. Will Lorca's secret be found out? How important is breakfast? When will we hear from Majel Barrett?

It's the episode that starts with a conspiracy theory and ends with a questionable trap.

When Captain Lorca is heading back from the Admiral's club, he's soon kidnapped by Klingons and becomes a prisoner of war. At the same time Burnham feels a deep connection to Ripper's nipples. It's time for Lorca to get back to the Discovery, and for the science team to chart a new map with human DNA. Will the spore drive continue to work? Will Tilly continue her profane rants? How has oral hygiene improved in the future?
It's the episode that gives you Mudd in a prison, and BDSM in the laboratory.
