This show hasn't been short on surprises.

that scene grossed me out too.

My understanding is that she's missing, hence using the ploy that she'd been chasing down Lorca as a way to meet the Emperor.

I want Mirror Michael to show up and have our Michael come face to face with her.

I really loved this ep. And I was sad when I first started it because it was only 37 minutes long but this ep had so much stuff in it than other longer episodes did.

Michael being forced to eat a Kelpien was just so gross

I wasn't expecting the Lorca twist at all. But now pretty much everything he's done makes sense.

Micheal putting the pieces together while the Emperor was telling her about the Lorca from her universe made for a really cool scene.

I'm not sure that waking up the Mirror Paul was such a great idea. At first I thought that out Stamets had woken up in the wrong body. So glad that we got our Stamets back.

I was surprised that L'Rell saved Ash but I think she had a soft spot for him as well. Ash's fix seemed a little too easy to be honest. I wonder if it's going to stay that way for him if this will be an on-going fight between him and the Klingon in his body. Judging by the amount of mourning L'Rell though it seemed a permanent change in her mind.

I can't wait for next week's ep!

I think she's in hiding either in the mirror universe or our universe. The mirror universe makes more sense though because Lorca is still trying to kill and displace the emperor. If the Mirror Universe Michael is dead that it's because he killed her. Which with the cut throat way the people of that universe are it would not surprise me if Lorca was using Mirror Michael the entire time to get to the Emperor and once she served her purpose he killed her.

I don't think Lorca killed Mirror Michael. The Emperor said it herself, Lorca groomed Michael to be by his side, and when Michael was older, she chose Lorca over the Emperor., over her mother Some times, children choose one parent over the other. It didn't matter how much attention of "Love" Philippa showed to young Michael, Lorca was the father she was looking for, and then when she was older, it changed.

well, I can't deny that it's good, but it's so different that I'd rather call it something other than Star Trek

Completely agree with you there. Liked the flashbacks to the various moments that made Michael realize what had happened.

I hope so. Lorca has proven that he can survive no matter what. He jumped universes just to avoid being caught by the Emperor's forces.

Lorca is crafty enough to survive.

Lorca has definitely shown that he'll do whatever it takes.
