'Star Trek: Picard' Season 1 Finale: Bromance between Will Riker and Jean-Luc Picard moves fans to tears
The ban on synths is lifted and we can prepare to see another season filled with more intergalactic adventures and cultural clashes
With much grace and dignity, like the venerated Captain, the first season of 'Star Trek: Picard' came to an end. Soulful and melancholy, the show's finale, that struck a chord with the fans made them emotional. The episode reveals that Jean-Luc Picard's (Patrick Stewart) brain abnormality is solved and hey presto, he is now a synth. Before this, he even has a limbo-like conversation with Data (Brent Spiner).
The ban on synths is lifted and we can prepare to see another season filled with more intergalactic adventures and cultural clashes.
Soji (Isa Briones) has abandoned her bloodlust for now and has decided to travel with Picard, Seven (Jeri Ryan), Rio, Raffi Mussiker (Michelle Hurd) and the rest of the La Sirena crew. The evil synth's evil plans were foiled, so cheers to that.
On the other hand, fans are in tears over this finale and have been flooding social media with their explosive reactions. A fan tweeted, "I'm crying. I'm glad that during 2019 I set myself a challenge to catch up on all things Star Trek. Data is among the top three favorite characters and this season, without spoilers, warms my heart so much. I can't wait for the next season."
Another wrote, "That was the PERFECT season finale #StarTrekPicard ! @StarTrek I hope @JeriLRyan comes back next season."
"Well #StarTrekPicard has slain me. I’m going to bed to have a good cry. Catch you on the flip side," wrote another fan. "Can we just ENGAGE to a second season now of #StarTrekPicard please? Because that S1 finale was phenomenal!" tweeted a fan.
Fans were thrilled to see Will Riker (Jonathan Frakes) fighting by Picard's side. "ACTING CAPTIAIN RIKER!!! I AM ABSOLUTELY DEAD!!!!" A fan tweeted.
"The love between Riker and Jean-Luc makes me cry Watching Part 2 S1 finale of #StarTrekPicard" wrote another fan. Their friendship and bromance is a thing of legends among Trekkies. "Just watched the #StarTrekPicard season finale. 1) I love the Picard-Riker relationship. Beautiful, @jonathansfrakes Absolutely beautiful. Riker isn't a bit Rusty in the least!" tweeted a fan.
For now, we bid goodbye to Picard and his La Sirena crew. The next season will be even more engaging and exciting, no doubt.
