A Quick Recap!
In the previous episode, Picard relived a part of his childhood memory inside his mind. His abusive father, Maurice, chased a young Picard and his mother, Yvette, around the house. Picard was in a coma, and Tallinn tried to help him wake up from a memory that his mind was stuck on. Moreover, Tallinn assisted Picard in realizing that his mother was actually struggling with mental illness. Maurice was not abusive, and he was just trying t protect Yvette and Picard.
Further, in Star Trek Picard Season 2 Episode 7, Picard woke up from his coma, and Tallinn confessed that she was actually a Romulan. She could possibly have been Laris’ ancestor. Picard had a theory that Q may have a personal stake in his trial. Meanwhile, Picard asked Guinan to summon Q with the help of the El-Aurian ritual. Unfortunately, the ritual failed just as an FBI agent came to the bar. He arrested the crew on the basis of a surveillance tape in which Picard was seen using his Transporter.
Elsewhere, Rios secretly sneaked Teresa and her son onto La Sirena. He also confessed to Teresa that he was a time traveler. Moreover, Raffi and Seven found out that the ship’s computers had been sabotaged by Borg’s encryption codes. So, the duo began to track Agnes. They ended up at a bar where Agnes smashed a window and realized that the Queen was trying to generate more endorphins in Agnes’ body. If the Queen succeded, she would have enough power to assimilate more people, and Agnes would turn into the new Borg Queen in Star Trek Picard Season 2 Episode 7.
