In addition, the episode focuses on our heroes’ attempts to restore advantage against the ruthless Vadic. While Vadic asks that the mysterious Jack Crusher (played by Ed Speleers) be brought to her, no one is sure why she wants him, everyone’s best hope may be Data (played by Brent Spiner), but this is contingent on the fact that the android is able to avoid having his memory erased by his meaner and less capable counterpart, Lore. .

‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 3 Episode 8 Recap

Vadic rules the U.S.S. Titan after Jean-Luc Picard  (Patrick Stewart) failed to capture her in “Dominion.” This seems like an overwhelming problem on the surface, but the crew has dealt with a lot of problems since Picard and William Riker (Jonathan Frakes) joined the ship. In an attempt to find Jack Crusher, Vadic plays with them like a cat, taking away their eyes, hearing, and the road ahead. However, Geordi La Forge (LeVar Burton) unplugs Data-Lore (Brent Spiner) to prevent the android from tampering. Beverly (Gates McFadden) and Picard try to enter the security system in sick bay, but Vadic has locked everybody out of the Titan. Jack takes use of his advantageous position by stepping inside the head of a passing engineering officer in the hallways and gaining insight into the officer’s thoughts and actions.

In this episode, Jack puppets the police officer along the hall as they observe the carnage caused by the Changelings; however, the episode is abruptly cut short as the officer is shot and killed. Beverly and Picard worry about their son, unknowing of his differences. Without Jack’s prompt surrender, Vadic announces over the intercom that she will carry out an execution on the bridge. Back on the bridge, Seven corrects Shaw again when he calls her Hansen  (Jeri Ryan). Despite the risk to their lives, she wants him to appreciate her. When Jack is late getting to the bridge, Vedic threatens to start killing off the crew in ten-minute increments until he shows up there. Jack attempts to escape sick bay after this threat, but Beverly won’t let him go, especially since Picard is convinced that Vadic would destroy the ship even if he turned himself in.

Jack has been on the precipice ever since the beginning of this potentially fatal crisis. He would do anything to spare the lives of those who are fighting for him, but none will let him. As he continues to feel increasingly helpless in the face of the mounting evidence that something is seriously wrong with him, he loses it in front of his parents. Beverly and Picard agree to listen before he even speaks, however, Beverly scans him to make sure he’s not hallucinating when he talks about seeing through other people’s eyes. Sidney admits that he took over her body to save her life, which makes them trust him. Jack jumps into Lt. Mura’s body with one minute left on Vadic’s countdown. The override code was quickly canceled, and Vadic began to suspect that Jack had taken control of the lieutenant’s body, but their plans were quickly thwarted.

Jack is startled that Vadic even knows what he can do, as are Seven and Shaw, who watch the action unfold. Vadic kills someone when her patience runs out. After Jack’s heroism, Lt. Mura and a tearful Ensign Esmar become prospective victims. After making a show of getting Mura to discuss his kid, Vadic coldly puts down Lt. T’Veen (Stephanie Czajkowski) and orders Seven to announce the news over the intercom. Now that she has shown she isn’t kidding, Vadic again threatens Jack with death unless he turns himself in. Finally, Riker’s wounds are being treated by Deanna aboard the Shrike. Riker recalls his feelings as he faced death in the Nebula as the subject turns to their relationship problems. Later, as it becomes clear that they won’t be saved from the Shrike, Deanna blames Riker for giving it up, just as she said he did after Thad’s death. He responds by pointing out how Deanna sought to numb his sorrow, severing his last relationship with Thad. When Deanna reveals she dislikes where they live and wants to go to the city, they reconcile. Riker hates living in Nepenthe, and as they grieve over their kid, they realize they misunderstood each other.

Worf (Michael Dorn) rescues them, interrupting their reconciliation! The group returns to where Raffi (Michelle Hurd) is doing her autopsy on Picard’s body, and Raffi discloses that the Changelings only required a portion of Picard’s body. Sidney explains that they require more time than any human being on Titan has, given such a brief period of time to do it, to break into the system. Picard, Jack, Beverly, and Sidney visit Engineering, where Geordi and Alandra (Mica Burton) are. Picard calls Geordi’s wine preferences “pedestrian,” but after they’ve established that they’re not Changelings, the two get to work devising a strategy to rescue Data from Lore’s custody. Picard advises decreasing the partition between the two identities, but Geordi warns that Lore may replace Data, permanently erasing Data’s identity. Data is reminiscing, despite Lore’s teasing, instead of fighting as Geordi advised. Data tells Lore about Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby) and plays poker with the Enterprise crew before recalling his pet cat Spot.

Data vanishes as Lore grabs Spot, and Geordi tells engineering that Data may be lost. Data realized that Lore valued his memories and, by giving them to Lore, he was gradually making Lore more like himself, rather than erasing them as he had done with Data. Jack’s time-buying idea had to come from Jean-Luc Picard’s son. He approaches Vadic on the bridge—with a catch. Jack is holding an explosive and has decided to shoot himself up if Vadic does not free the bridge team. Vadic buys the bluff. Seven stays on the bridge. Vadic then addresses Jack’s isolation and suggests that his mother’s “calling” to help others may be remorse. Data was restored in time. Riker tells the Titan they’re returning from the Shrike after turning on the comms.

When Jack pretends the metal ball he’s holding is a detonator, he’s able to grasp Seven and drag her into a protective force field. Data activates the evacuation hatch, propelling Vadic into space, where she breaks into many parts. After defeating Vadic, Shaw lets Seven burn up the Shrike, eliminating one Changeling menace. After boarding the Titan, Deanna feels an “all-consuming darkness” that mirrors Jack’s situation. The Next Generation team finally meets in the prepared room to talk about their grim condition, confirming their suspicions. Before this mournful keep in mind Geordi and Data have a romantic reunion in engineering, while Deanna and Beverly rejoin like old friends. Picard says that Jack’s problem seems to be getting worse as the impending catastrophe draws nearer. Deanna continues by stating that evil isn’t in him, despite the fact that he possesses an ancient voice that is not his own. As the show winds down, Deanna expresses interest in meeting Jack.
