Such Sweet Sorrow, part 1
Michael builds a time suit. Tilly became Jar Jar Binks this season. There is split screen and then there isn't. The Section 31 ships are drones. Saru makes a speech and calls the ex-emperor a Terran on the bridge in front of everyone. MULorca was scorned as a Terran and yet the ex-emperor is embraced. There is slack jawed gaping.
Control is discourteous. Was this ep necessitous? There are talks of betrayal, disgraceful marks of ingratitude and not so unexpected apperances from malign presences. Michael is famously unquiet. Stuff blows up. Paul is all bloody. The Admiral is useless. Where were all those other doctors during the season 2 run?
This ep looks like a paintboook explosion. Doesn't Discovery have security? How did Control get on board and slap people around and rampage for so long? Enterprise is struck by a torpedo. Enterprise has repair drones? Blast shields get jammed which means someone will die. Why are phasers blue? A great big Klingon ship shows up along with the Kelpains. D7s attack Control. How did the Kelpians go from pre-warp non-tech individuals to fighter pilots?
Michael must be the centre of interest. She set all this in motion. Motivation is deliberately vague. There are rolling concerns and Hugh fusses over Paul. How did Ash get to the Klingons? What is Michael standing on? Why is she always posing? There is a wormhole. Spock is prophetically opining. How does Michael make the signals? Is the future where all life is destoryed by Control an irrevocably fixed future?
'Star Trek' is immortalised in popular culture. Yet season 2 did not do it for me. There are moments of disorder. Why are they punching Control? People are sucked into space. There is a zero g fight in which 'Inception' is ripped off. Control has intensified hostility and does vindictive treatment. There were overwhelming expectations for this season which were not met.
Why do the Admiral and Number One do that arm clasp? The Klingon phasers are green. L'Rell bleeds red not pink. Michael sets it all in motion. Why does the time suit have wings? Michael and Discovery head 930 years into the future. Why do they need to go to the future if Control has been defeated? The Admiral is ready and willing to do a self-sacrifice.
Why is the blast door manuel override on the inside? The Admiral dies. She never saw her Gabriel again. Is the real Gabriel Lorca still stuck in the MU? Does anyone care? Spock's left behind. He lickarses Michael. Stop talking Michael and go into the damn future! She makes a wry prophecy about Kirk.
Discovery goes to the future. Spock says the ship, her crew and spore drive must never be spoken off again to preserve the timeline. Where's the security chief? Who was the guy debriefing people? Spock speaks Vulcan. There is sap. Ash a Klingon who was stripped to the bones and had a dead human grafted to his bones is made Section 31 chief. Didn't L'Rell claim to have killed Ash? How was he able to walk around on the bridge of a Klingon warship? This was the season finale. We'll see how season 3 turns out.
Control screamed as it 'died' which makes no sense. The ex-emperor laughed at its screams as it fell apart. L'Rell's wound vanished. Number One wears lipgloss. Enterprise has a huge chunk missing. The Golden Gate bridge is seen and it looks different. Discovery's fate was lied about. Where are the DTI? So Spock never spoke to Kirk of Michael to preserve the timeline? Spock shaves and puts on his uniform shirt. He looks WEIRD with no beard. When this show began I was in a happy relationship, now I'm not.

A woman who killed 2 people gets away with it. Barry gives moral lectures. FFS. Ralph annoys. Will Joe just leave? He seems bored. Cisco doesn't want his woman to know he's Vibe.

Chapter Six: An Exorcism In Greendale
Sabrina is petulant. This is not uniquely potent. Madam Satan has sheer malignancy. There is ambient moral rottenness and histrionic drama. There is social horror and people see things. A witch pregnancy lasts 13 months. Harvey bores. Will Sabrina stop lying? The aunts are useless. There is bad acting. A demon lurks. Sabrina visits a mine. What's a trapping stone? There are tunnels to hell and red light. Susie screeches and Nick Scratch lurks.
Alessandro Juliani guest starred. Sabrina wonders about an exorcisim. Father Blackwood could care less. I did not like this. Madam Satan murdered the man who was possessed after Sabrina exorcised him. Anne Boleyn was a witch? The demon is chucked down a well. Yawn.
