Picard, Season 1: Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2

http://www.treknobabble.net/p/rating-system.htmlPicard, Season 1
"Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2"
Airdate: March 26, 2020
10 of 10 produced
10 of 10 aired

Introduction
A large space standoff occurs. A character dies and is resurrected in perhaps the single most predictable plot development possible. A bunch of characters we can't possibly care about express utterly baseless emotions about characters that we do.



Here it is, folks: the best part of the episode. Save yourself the other 50 minutes and go clean between the tiles in your shower or something.

Introduction

The latest episode of Picard wastes an entire hour killing two canon characters for no reason, delivering one piece of pertinent plot information (that we already knew), and SHOCK TWISTS one of the leads. Or, "another day another dollar" for Kurtzman-Trek.

"Ah em Pepe LePew! Please disregard ze gory murder you just witnessed and laugh along with ze hilariteee!"
