Jack's Review
A great start to the season. I haven't said anything about Sonequa Martin-Green's acting until now, so here we go. She has a very strange range. Stoic and maddeningly superior one moment, crying like a teenager in another. She plays the character well, but I am not sure if I am a fan of her acting style. The superfast talking gets on my nerves too. Now, that is out of the way, so I need to give her huge props on this episode. The way she acts after getting hit with that gas is hilarious and overall the episode is a blast.

Jack's Review
Oh man, Jake Weber is terrific. He will always be John Campbell from Hell on Wheels and Hirsch from U-571 to me...but I will be adding Zareh to that list now. This is a great Western-style episode which is probably why he is so good in the Zareh role. He is the perfect menacing bully.

Finally reunited, Burnham and the U.S.S. Discovery crew journey to Earth, eager to learn what happened to the Federation in their absence.

Jack's Review
And we get another Hell on Wheels alum here in the form of Christopher Heyerdahl - AKA The Swede. Another amazing actor. Great to see him pop-up here. I am always expecting the Norwegian accent when I see him, however. This is a fun episode. Frakes makes it feel very TNG and I salute him for that.

Forget Me Not

Burnham and Adira visit the Trill homeworld in hopes of unlocking the secrets trapped within Adira's mind. Back on the U.S.S. Discovery, Saru's efforts to help the crew reconnect with one another take a surprising turn.

Jack's Review
I know a lot of fans went crazy over this episode. A non-Trill joining with a Symbiont? Just because we hadn't seen it before doesn't mean it couldn't happen. I actually like that Adira doesn't have full access to the Symbiont's memories and personalities.

Die Trying

After reuniting with what remains of Starfleet and the Federation, the U.S.S. Discovery and its crew must prove that a 930 year old crew and starship are exactly what this new future needs.

Jack's Review
This one has a nice creepy feel to it. Overall an unusual episode - and not the last unusual one for the season. Nice filler here that moves the plot about The Burn along.

Episode:306
Scavengers

Jack's Rating:

After receiving a message from Book, Burnham and Georgiou embark on a rogue mission to find him, leaving Saru to pick up the pieces with Admiral Vance. Meanwhile, Stamets forms an unexpected bond with Adira.

Jack's Review
I really enjoyed this one - with one minor exception. Why do the Orions need face prosthetics? They are green. That's it. Just lightly spray them with green makeup and enhance in post. Pretty simple from where I'm sitting. Still, overall another fun episode.

Episode:307
Unification III

While grappling with the fallout of her recent actions, and what her future might hold, Burnham agrees to represent the Federation in an intense debate about the release of politically sensitive - but highly valuable - Burn data.

Jack's Review
This episode kind of jumps the shark. Burnham's mother works with the Vulcans? Seems a tad contrived to me. I know they were trying to show that although Gabrielle is her birth mother Burnham really has more in common with Vulcans. *shrug* it kind of works, but the episode feels weak compared to the rest of the season before it.

Episode:308
The Sanctuary

Burnham and the U.S.S. Discovery crew travel to Book's home planet to help rescue it from Osyraa, the formidable leader of the Emerald Chain. Meanwhile, Stamets and Adira continue their search for valuable information on the origin of the Burn.

Jack's Review
I don't know what the writers were doing here. This one is pure filler. I really like Booker and this one really is a classic stand-alone Trek story - but it's closer to "The Way to Eden" than "The Apple".

Episode:309
Terra Firma, Part 1

The U.S.S. Discovery crew journey to a mysterious planet in hopes of finding a cure for Georgiou's deteriorating condition. Stamets and Adira make a stunning breakthrough with the newly acquired Burn data.

This one is actually terrific. I was annoyed that they were taking us back to the mirror universe again, but the reasoning is sound and the story is really good.

Episode:310
Terra Firma, Part 2

Georgiou uncovers the true depths of the plot against her, leading her to a revelation about how deeply her time on the U.S.S. Discovery truly changed her.

Jack's Review
This is a polarizing episode. A TOS character makes a pretty grand appearance here and while shocking I know many fans thought it was pure fan service. I enjoyed it - and it actually did surprise me.

Episode:311
Su

Discovery ventures to the Verubin Nebula, where Burnham, Saru, and Culber make a shocking realization about the origin of the Burn as the rest of the crew faces an unexpected threat.

Jack's Review
Now we get to the first of the two things I disliked about season 3. Su'Kal's ability was stolen right out of the "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" by Ursula K. le Guin. If she were alive she would sue CBS into oblivion - she was nearly as grouchy as Harlan Ellison.

Episode:312
There Is A Tide...

After capturing the U.S.S. Discovery, Osyraa seeks a meeting with Admiral Vance while Burnham and the crew must overcome unimaginable odds as they attempt to regain command of their ship.
