Re: DSC S1: Despite Yourself

@MadManMUC

Okay let me rephrase that. The only reason that MU Lorca is able to pass in the PU and not look like a complete psychopath is because he's more like a MU Vulcan than anything else. I just don't think they would have invested so much time in making him seem like a complex character with a genuine good side if only to have him be purely evil. We've seen that it is possible for MU characters to have some decency.

I dunno, I think it would be a cool twist so I'll stick with my theory. We'll find out though.

Re: DSC S1: Despite Yourself

Also I forgot to add: there's a clue that suggests my theory of Lorca being mirror Lorca is true. When he talks to Burnham about what they'll have to do to survive in this universe, did anyone else get the sense that he was speaking from experience?

Re: DSC S1: Despite Yourself

I didn't read most of the comments so I don't know if anyone else has brought up this theory. I think that the Lorca we've been with since the beginning of the series is actually MU Lorca that crossed over. Meanwhile, our universe Lorca is either dead or mia. Think about how many things would make sense if that were the case. They mentioned that Lorca was staging a coup of the empire. Which means that mirror Lorca might actually be a moral, honorable man who hates to see the oppressive empire smash everyone to the dirt (this universe Lorca must be an absolute saint). This would really explain Lorca's personality of being morally questionable but also having some semblance of morality. Compared to what he's used to, he's actually acting like an upstanding citizen, but to everyone else he's doing some pretty sketchy things.

So, the method of how MU Lorca came to our universe is as of yet unknown, but the reason he wanted to go back is most likely to finish what he started. He wants to complete his mission of overthrowing the empire. Then either he'll be content to stay in his own universe or make the whole thing look like an attempt to get himself and his crew back home.

This would certainly be an interesting twist that would actually fit Discovery's theme of making unconventional people the main characters. I.e. a criminal and a mirror universe rebel.
