Star Trek: Picard Episode 4 "Absolute Candor" Breakdown & Easter Eggs

In the fourth episode of Star Trek: Picard, Picard and crew take a detour to the planet Vashti, where Picard and Raffi relocated Romulan refugees 14 years ago. Join Chastity and Greg for a breakdown of the plot, Star Trek references, and The Next Generation Easter eggs from Episode 4, "Absolute Candor."

Episode 4 was directed by Jonathan Frakes, who is also set to make an appearance this season as Will Riker. In this episode, we learn about the Qowat Milat, an all female Romulan religious order that helped Starfleet in the relocation of Romulan refugees. Picard (Patrick Stewart) had befriended some of the Qowat Milat and Elnor, an orphan boy being raised by the warrior nuns. After abandoning them when he left Starfleet, Picard directs Rios to take a detour to Vashti, and is reunited with the Qowat Milat and Elnor, who is now grown up.

Meanwhile on the Borg Artifact cube, Narek continues to try to learn more about Soji, while Narissa grows impatient with her brother's lack of progress.

Know Vulcans/Romulans are basically space-elves, but now they literally look straight out of a LOTR movie.

The evil sister Romulan character looks scarier and uglier in each ep. I wonder if it’s the lighting or makeup. Romulan makeup look more Asian than in prior series. Elnor looks like one of those swordsmans from ancient China, which is cool. Season is almost half over. I hope the story picks up soon.
