On last week's episode of Star Trek: Picard, Jean-Luc and his new crew arrived at Freecloud, in search of Data's elusive former pen-pal Bruce Maddox. Unfortunately, Deanna Troi-lookalike Bjayzl and her group of space gangsters dealt quite harshly with the exiled scientist. (Though perhaps not quite as harshly as Dr. Jurati, who put an end to her former lover for reasons we're still not totally clear on.) We also got to enjoy Seven of Nine kicking bucketsful of ass at the end of the episode, when she returned to Freecloud to extract her bloody revenge, Kill Bill style.
Wondering when you can tune in to Picard episode 6, "The Impossible Box"? We've got you covered.
What to expect from Picard Episode 6, "The Impossible Box"
We've officially crossed the halfway mark for the first season of Picard. (Yep, we already know there's going to be a second, so it's pretty safe to say Jean-Luc will survive his android detective adventures.) So it's high time that all our far-flung characters and storylines start weaving together.
Here's the official synopsis for "The Impossible Box," courtesy of CBS:
Picard and the crew track Soji to the Borg cube in Romulan space, resurfacing haunting memories for Picard. Meanwhile, Narek believes he finally found a way to safely exploit Soji for information.
It seems as though Jean-Luc will finally cross paths with Data's second "daughter," but he's probably going to have to confront some deeply unpleasant memories about his stint as Locutus of Borg along the way. Will we learn more about Seven's adventures with the Fenris Rangers? Will we finally see more of Riker and Troi (and maybe other Next Generation alums) as the season teaser promised? That remains to be seen.
