'Star Trek: Picard' Season 2 Episode 7 Preview: Will Tallinn bring Picard back?
Season 2 of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ has taken a different route from the previous edition and focuses more on the titular character rather than the action. The first six episodes of the Paramount+ series have been really insightful and we also saw some glimpses of Jean-Luc’s (Sir Patrick Stewart) past. The best thing about the second part is that it has given ample time to cover everyone’s story and that’s actually a good thing.
In the previous episode, Jurati (Alison Pill) and the Borg Queen (Annie Wersching) worked together to help the team. However, the Queen took over her body and is now controlling her. On the other hand, Picard had a discussion with Renee (Penelope Mitchell) and made her feel comfortable during the gala. As soon as we thought everything was going toward normalcy, Dr. Soong came in and hit Picard with his car before leaving the scene.
The team doesn’t have much time left and if they need to save the future, they would need Picard to get up quickly. Also, the Queen might wreak havoc and stop them from achieving what they want to. Let’s take a look at what will happen in Episode 7 of ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Season 2.

The episode will mainly focus on Jurati and Picard. Jurati has forgotten about her existence and the Queen is doing what she wants to do. The scientist is in danger and might put the mission in jeopardy for everyone. Meanwhile, Jean-Luc talks about meeting a Kragan in the past, who could feel danger in her bones, and this is what happens when creatures live in a world where monsters are real.
Thanks to Jurati, the Borg Queen gets so powerful that it has got the power to simulate others. Raffi and Seven of Nine realize that things have gotten worse and they were here to save the world, but it seems they have doomed it.
The other part of the episode will take us to Picard’s past. Tallinn needs to help the titular character before he gets lost. She needs to enter his mind and bring him back to complete the mission. Rios asks her if she is sure about all this, to which, she replies, “not in the slightest”. In one of the scenes, we’ll see him sitting inside the Starship, which might be a part of his unconscious imagination.
So, get ready to see more of Jean-Luc’s backstory, which will have an impact on the character’s future as the ongoing season progresses.
It’ll be interesting to see how the makers are able to wrap up all the current plot threads.
