Star Trek Picard Season 3 Episode 3 was released on 2nd March 2023. Many people have watched it but many did not understand what happened in this episode. In this article, we will discuss Star Trek Picard Season 3 Episode 3 Recap and review.
Star Trek Picard Season 3 Episode 3 Recap!
As Vadic (Amanda Plummer) and the Shrike chase the U.S.S. Titan deeper into a dangerous nebula that keeps them from going to warp, tensions are rising on board. But it's not just the tension that's getting worse; feelings are getting worse, too.
After what happened last week, Episode 3 of Star Trek: Picard Season 3 forces Picard (Patrick Stewart) and Jack (Ed Speleers) to deal with their new connection.
Picard is sure that Vadic will follow them wherever they go until they give up, but Captain Shaw (Todd Stashwick) doesn't want to give up his ship, no matter what. Since he has no other choice, he tells the crew to take the ship deeper into the nebula in hopes of shaking the Shrike loose.
Even though the crew of the Titan is in clear and present danger, they are quick to look at Jack and blame him for the attack. This is especially true since they don't know why Picard wants Shaw to protect Jack. Beverly (Gates McFadden) tells Jack not to get mad because the crew is going to need them because they know about medicine.
Before the opening credits, the episode flashes back to a moment not long after Riker's (Jonathan Frakes) son Thad was born, when Riker and Picard got together to celebrate.
This scene sets up a key moment at the end of the episode when Riker tells Picard how close Thad's birth was to be a disaster and how it takes the turbolift on the Titan about 17 seconds to get from the bridge to the sick bay.
There are many reasons why this is a very touching moment. For one thing, Riker's son does end up dying, making his worst fears come true, and for another, it's clear that he wishes Picard could be a father too.
Once you have a child, Riker tells Picard, “You'll burn the whole world to save them.” This reminds me of the song Picard and Beverly were both listening to in the first episode.
Picard and Riker go to see Beverly and Jack while they are taking care of patients in the sick bay. They want to know what's going on with them. Riker tries to get Jack to leave, but Jack quickly says no and says that Picard can say anything to his mother in front of him.
But Beverly tells him to leave with Riker, which is a good idea because there are parts of their conversation that would have been hard to talk about with him there. Even though Episode 2's big reveal was told in silence, which made for a deep and interesting story, Picard has a lot of questions, starting with “why.”
Beverly says that before she left the Enterprise, she was sure that they both knew that their on-again, off-again relationship was finally over. They tried to enjoy their shore leave, but he had to go back to the ship early, which was always the case.
At that point, they broke up for the fifth time. Picard didn't realize that ending their relationship also meant the end of their friendship, or that he would never see her again and wondered what he did wrong.
Picard can't figure out why Beverly didn't tell him she was pregnant, and she says it's because his life was too dangerous, with people always trying to kill him or him running into dangerous situations. She didn't think he would leave Starfleet, especially since she knew he never wanted a family because he was afraid of being a dad.
Star Trek Picard Season 3 Episode 3 Review!
Even though Picard's first two seasons weren't always good, there were still times when they were good. In its first season, the “found family” vibe was often quite charming. In its second season, scientist Agnes Jurati had the best arc of the whole show.
This third season premiere shows the power of the deep, quiet bond that has grown between Picard and Seven over the course of this show's run. But Picard has never really figured out what it wants to be as a show. It's a well-thought-out piece about legacy and regret. Family drama after a second chance?
Digging up of inner pain? Or a look at how one man's better side won out over his troubled past? During its run, the show has been all of these things, and sometimes none of them. Because of this, it's hard to know how to feel about it or what kind of bigger story it's trying to tell.
In this way, the first episode of Picard's third season probably doesn't help much, since it feels like the start of a whole new show than the one we've been watching for the past two years.
And, to be fair, I think this premiere is the closest to what most viewers probably always wanted from a Picard series in the first place: something that feels like a slightly more mature Star Trek: The Next Generation movie, where Picard and Riker make jokes about how old they—and by extension, we—have become.
