This episode was a mess.
The overblown eulogising at the beginning was cringe inducing. And all for a character they’d spent one episode developing (and they’ve cheapened death so much that she’ll probably be back anyway).
It seems to have become a requirement for Tilly to make at least two appearances in which she provides ‘comic relief’, even if she does nothing for the rest of the episode. She literally can’t walk through a door and deliver a quick briefing without acting like a bellend. She’s Godzuki taking a tumble while landing on the deck of the Calico. She should have a little comedy jingle to accompany each appearance.

I didn’t actually mind the plan that much. Even if future Burnham knew she had survived the incident, she may have known she only survived through saving herself. I think it can be made to make sense - just about.
Then it turned out the angel is actually her mum. Another groan inducer.

Also, what was the point of bringing the Doctor back? His whiny sub-plot is annoying - I hope it goes somewhere. And I wish Section 31 bloke would either have a shave or grow a beard. His permanent 3 day stubble looks shit.
