'Star Trek: Picard' Season 2 Episode 4 Preview: Is the Borg Queen trying to manipulate Jurati?
The second season of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ started with a bang and the first three episodes have been absolutely perfect. In the previous episode, we saw how the team scattered to find the Watcher. In the process, Rios gets badly injured and is picked up by the paramedics. He finally recovers because of a young doctor named Teresa. However, trouble seems to follow Rios everywhere and as soon as he recovers, the clinic gets raided by the authorities.
As a result, Rios (Santiago Carbrera) and Teresa are both taken into custody. Meanwhile, the rest of the team doesn’t know about his whereabouts and is unable to contact him. Picard (Patrick Stewart) and the team take one more chance to track down the Watcher while Rios’ situation worsens. The entire situation with Rios has added a new and intriguing element to the show. But things are getting intense for the team and it’s really necessary for them to find Rios so that they can start what they intended to do because time is running out for them.
As far as the Watcher is concerned, there have been a few clues regarding the mysterious being. It started with a teaser for the series and it was first mentioned by Queen Borg (Annie Wersching) in Episode 2 of the ongoing edition. Meanwhile, in the previous episode, Jurati connects herself to the Queen and says that she can see ‘The Watcher’. Although one thing is for certain that the Watcher is a female.
So, what more can we expect from the upcoming episode of ‘Star Trek: Picard’.
‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 2 Episode 4 Spoilers
Picard and the team don’t have much time to restore things as they were before. They have only three days to find the Watcher and if they are not able to do that, the future is changed irrevocably. On the other hand, Rios is now a convict and is being taken to prison. Now, Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) and Rafaella (Michelle Hurd) know how important it is for them to have Rios back in order to fix the timeline, so they embark on a journey to find him. The duo steals the police car and gets involved in an accident because Jurati can be seen saying if they are okay or not.
Meanwhile, an interesting conversation takes place between Jurati (Alison Pill) and the Borg Queen in which the Queen asks her about how she felt when she got connected to her. Queen tells Jurati that she is much more than what her friends see her be. However, she says that Jurati is smart, cunning, and remarkably crueler than she could have predicted.
The conversation suggests that Jurati saw and felt something that the Borgs feel when they connect to each other, which is also known as simulation or connection. Is there something that Jurati knows and not telling the team? Maybe, but it seems the team might be able to find the Watcher this time around.
It’ll be interesting to see how they manage to get hold of Rios and bring him back. We’ll see that in Episode 4 of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 2.
‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 2 returns to Paramount+ with a new episode every Wednesday.
