I really hope that we'll see more of Lorca.

Very good episode. Only got around to watching it now.

I agree that Michael meeting AU-Michael would be a lot of fun!!!

If Lorca has always been AU-Lorca, from the beginning....then, where (or who) is the real Lorca?

Haven't watched so many delicious twists and turns since 'Westworld'.

I think Federation Lorca died when he blew up the Baran. Its what made it easy for Mirror Lorca to step into his dead counterpart's shoes. At least that's my theory.

Yeah, I'm definitely not expecting there to be a second Lorca. Now, a second Michael... that would be fun. But how would she show up, all of a sudden?

Lorca had 'men', but they were there to just overthrow the Emperor, right, but he wasn't part of the resistance?

When our Michael told Lorca he was wanted for Mirror Michael's murder, you could see his moment of shock, of disbelief. That tells me, that Mirror Michael is still alive and kicking.

To attempt a coup, Lorca had to get many people on his side. His ship, the I.S.S Baran, that crew would have been loyal to him, and most of them were kept in agonizers. So, he'll have numbers, but we don;t know how many.

I suspect that you're right about our Lorca being dead, and Mirror Michael being alive.

Having a scene with both Michaels would certainly be interesting.

The Emperor seemed to know a thing or two about AU-Michael's whereabouts, no?

She certainly seems to believe that AU-Michael was a follower of AU-Lorca, no?

Maybe the Emperor is keeping AU-Michael a prisoner? That's how she would've known immediately, that there must be an infiltration from the Federation of planets....

I am confused.

It's the only way I can see that Lorca could seamlessly step into Federation Lorca's shoes. And when he left his universe of ours, he left Michael alive.

Seeing our Michael and Mirror Michael together would be amazing. Cause I wanna see how bad@$$ Mirror Michael really is.

I'm a bit confused too. I figured the Emperor knew something about AU Michael's whereabouts because she didn't seem too shocked by Michael's claim that she was from another timeline.

Hopefully this week's episode will clarify things.

Good ep.

The idea of the giant imperial flagship reminded me the death star of star wars.

What I don't like about this show is that they are making to many characters either evil or dead. I mean it's just the first season and tyler, the doctor, lorca all seem gone. I actually wanted to have all three around for a little longer.

Agree with you there. Some deaths would be a realistic part of the storyline, but I've become attached to all these characters.

Good point. Killing off main characters is a sensitive issue, on Star Trek. Even Tasha Yarr's demise was motivated by the actresses ambitions.

The evil bit kind of goes with the whole Mirror Universe storyline, but completely agree about getting frustrated at the deaths of characters I've come to care about.
