Revelations come fast and furious and crazy in the Mirror Universe as more than one mystery is laid bare while rabid ferrets eat away at Michael Burnham’s soul. Plus, Saru gets a crowning moment of awesome. My review of Star Trek Discovery‘s latest episode, “The Wolf Inside.”
It really does suck to be Michael Burnham.
I mean, first you had the whole thing with her parents being killed, and then she was raised on a planet that isn’t exactly kind and benevolent toward humans (or much of anybody), she got screwed out of going to Vulcan Space School, and then she got her captain and about 8000 other people killed in an incident that started a brutal war. And then she got herself assigned to a ship run by a loony with PTSD whose first officer is her former shipmate who hates her living guts.
And all of that is as nothing compared to the crap she goes through in “The Wolf Inside.”
