Goofs

When Burnham is in the process of an experiment to capture the Red Angel, Pike orders Owosekun to beam her to Sickbay. Site-to-site transportation technology was assumed not to exist in the Pre-Next Generation Timeline, key word, "assumed". However, we found out in "Such Sweet Sorrow pt. II" that Discovery had basically been wiped out of the history books, including all of her advanced technology and any tech that had come from Section 31. See more »

Unbelievable, but season 1 was actually better.
22 March 2019 | by doappelSee all my reviews

Somehow they managed to combine all the usual recent disappointments in this episode.

* The events make little to no sense.

* The emotional story elements are too long and frequent but also of too shallow quality. Remarkable achievement, such a combination.

Generally: Besides Saru no character of the first season managed to improve. The season's plot isn't better either. It's pretty rare that a second season falls behind the premiere season.
