There are a lot of mystery boxes in this episode, full of people, androids, secrets, murder, and surprise figurines! The crew arrives at the Artifact at last. Picard is overwhelmed by his status as the OG XB. Is Narek as straightforward as he seems, or is there room for some interesting betrayal? Why is Narek’s sister so boring? Why do the Borg have a Stargate? Also, Agnes is deeply upset and seeks solace in the arms of a spaceship captain, as so often happens. And Raffi shows just how high functioning an alcoholic (and snake plant addict) she really is.
