So I’m sensing an arch on Discovery with Love through belief New Eden- science and faith, love of Mother -Amanda, L’Rell, Point of Light, love of Sibling with Michael and Saru, Stamets and Tilly, what love will we see this week?

Great thematic catch! I particularly like how they are showing multiple kinds of love, moving away from highlighting only romantic love (though of course there are many compelling couples and love stories!) and placing an equal if not greater weight on the love of friendship.
That would be so nice. With the variety of shows coming our way this year, let's hope CBS maintains its enthusiasm into the future and realizes that Pike would be an attractive character to build a new show around. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
In addition to love, what really popped out at me in this episode was Pike's statement that "his oath and conscience demand" that he help the sphere.
I've fallen in love with Pike and knowing that he won't be with us for long makes me sad and wistful. Oath and conscience . . .
With the word "love" being spoken aloud by characters more than on any other Trek show. It's a nice touch.
