    Three times now I have watched episode ten, the last time with episode nine, back to back...I had some mixed feelings the very first time I viewed it, but that was likely because I had some expectations going into it that didn't pan out...I think this is a brilliant episode, follows through and connects to the entire season quite well, this entire season one has been spectacular to say the least, well done to everyone who was involved in making Picard one of the best in Star Trek...I wholeheartedly look forward to season two...Thank you Patrick Stewart, you're the best!...

    Since this episode is less than a week old I'll post some detailed comments here:

    I have been getting immersed into this series more so than I usually do, perhaps its because I really wanted to see another Star Trek series that continued the timeline after Voyager and here it is with Picard...I teared when I saw Data again at the end, but he looked sad and out of place and as we heard Data talking more it was clear as to why, that was another tear jerking moment when he told Picard what he wanted...

    This episode really went for the emotions in quite a few acts...

    I had mixed feelings about Picard dying and resurrected as artificial life, but it really makes sense looking at the whole season in unity, it has been building to this since episode one...I'm glad they ended this chapter in the story and did not leave a cliffhanger...Now going into season two we will likely have a brand new storyline, it will be as fresh as season one has been...

    Loved the standoff with the Federation and Romulans, I really like the new Romulan warbird configuration too, it reflects the look they had during Captain Kirk's generation...The advanced artificial life was the only thing that matched my expectations in this episode, I expected them to have that appearance, kind of like the machines in the Matrix, it just seems like a logical design...

    I noticed Seven of Nine has joined the crew, she was leaving with them instead of staying with the Borg in the crashed cube, they kind of left that part hanging, what was going to happen to the cube and the Borg left behind?...Maybe that part is going to be continued on in season two, and maybe Seven of Nine will remain strong and not desire to be a queen Borg again like she was briefly...Maybe...

    Yeah, I was already on board with Picard But.
    one has to look deeper.

    Did you notice how Picard was there with Data when he died While golem Picard was shutting the Quantum Data Simulation? Mindblower lol, So Truthfully Picard Truly is Dead, His soul passed on, The Picard we have now Is a synth with a complete copy of Picard's mind. This opens up a lot of character possibilities and, Where is the story going next?
    Well, Cause, Season Two is Confirmed Btw.


    Also

    Personally, I'm a huge fan of the Character, I Hope this does happen, And to boot this, Let's say there is some sort of story arc problem or some sort of fan backlash that Picard isn't the original Picard or I guess one could say, Bio Picard, Dude Q could just bring him back, It's happened in the books before which are supposedly canon, Consider something could go wrong with Golam Picard or Even, Golem Picard being more machine now than ever could revert into Locutus of borg, There are so many possibilities now. I can't wait for season two,



    Of course, Guinan is coming back. that's confirmed too.


    Also, Don't be sad about the whole Data thing, Lore Is still alive out there somewhere. And B4 is simply deactivated ;)
