I'll have to rewatch - I could have sworn there was something about him reappearing somewhere else

That was Mirror him waking up from his coma after normal him sorted stuff out where they were stuck, and got normal him out too.

Both Stamets were in a comatose state. When Prime Stamets “found his way home”, we see MU Stamets waking in the Charon’s med bay. What’s confusing is they show him waking first and saying something like “he did it!” before we see the same thing on Discovery. The show whips by very fast. I have to watch it all twice. It’s like Hannibal all over again!

Yeah, it felt a bit odd - not sure if it was intentional or not, but thought they were going somewhere with it.

I did read it as "noraml universe" Stamets waking up in his Mirror counterparts body, too.

Yeah, just a bit sloppily edited, I reckon. Would have made more sense to show us Discovery's Stamets waking first.

I thought Prime Lorca was dead because he transported into the mirror ship in the ion cloud as it was destroyed (mirror Lorca's transporter signal got swapped with Prime Lorca's, so PL transported to the mirror ship at the point of destruction while ML transported to the prime universe).
Did I get that wrong?

Regarding Lorca prime, I think the adage applies:
If you didn't see the body or see them die onscreen then don't assume they are dead.


Nice to see some tactics with containment shields used in the firefights. Not many... but It's a start.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Much quieter episode tonight with emotional resolutions and precious little action or threat. But continues to get more like Trek.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Yeah, even I'm starting to enjoy it. That scene with Tyler in the mess hall - that, right there, is what Trek is all about for me.
