In their quest to adapt a crystalline tower to a giant sonar used to detect cloaked Klingon ships, Saru finds the peace he has sought his whole life — and he’s willing to abandon his mission, kill his crewmates, and derail the war effort to keep it. What a jerk! Or is he a tragic hero who deserves, if not our pity, at least our sympathy? There is no harmony between Ken and Sabriel in their assessment of Doug Jones’ character in this, the penultimate episode of Discovery‘s fall season. Also: Is Admiral Cornwell really dead? And who’s third in command of the Discovery? And how is the ship’s spore drive like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Find out in our podcast!
