Season 2 of the blockbuster hit series ‘Star Trek: Picard’ is undoubtedly one of the best shows out there and now that Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) has finally located the mysterious Watcher, things have started to get more intense for the entire team. The previous two episodes have also given us the opportunity to understand how every character is now busy with his or her mission and that’s what makes the show even more interesting.

But things are about to go from bad to worse because the Watcher might give Picard some key information about who she has been protecting for so many years. The name of the individual might shock everyone, including Jean-Luc and change the mission altogether. For the uninitiated, the show has re-introduced Laris as the Watcher and as soon as she appeared in front of Picard, he took a sigh of relief that the Watcher is protecting someone he knows.
