Dr. Culber's (Wilson Cruz) shocking death on Star Trek: Discovery and subsequent appearance in the Mycelial network made it clear that his complicated love story with Stamets (Anthony Rapp) was far from over.

Thursday's episode, titled "Saints of Imperfection," finally revisited the deceased medical officer's traumatic tale and revealed the extreme distress he'd endured since being killed by Tyler (Shazad Latif).

However, Burnham still trusts him — more, even, than she does Georgiou, which Captain Pike (Anson Mount) has picked up on — so he has, at last, one friend on board. And an honest conversation about the Mirror Universe emperor's true identity was left for a later time.
