This week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery has a mouthful of a title (“The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”) and Anita and Ebony have several mouthfuls of things to say about it. The two are cautiously optimistic about the development of Discovery’s depiction of the Klingons, as well as our introduction to Ripper and what its presence portends for Burnham’s growth as a more fully realized character.

Meanwhile, Anita finds herself thinking more fondly about certain crew members, while Ebony stays focused on the important matters concerning the black women on board the Discovery and their hair. The two hosts have words about Enterprise, and Ebony realizes she missed a vital moment of the plot.
