In Star Trek: Discovery season 5, episode 5, titled Mirrors, the crew faces a series of challenges and revelations.

The episode starts with Book recalling his mentor, Cleveland the 4th. He expresses his determination to save Moll from the dark side. Meanwhile, Stamets detects a new wormhole, prompting Michael and Book to investigate without backup.

Furthermore, inside the wormhole, the crew navigates through debris and discovers the damaged USS Enterprise. Michael and Book then explore the Enterprise, which leads them to Moll and L'ak's ship. The encounter reveals Moll and L'ak as lovers embroiled in mutinies and a revenge plot due to L'ak's demotion.

Back on the Discovery, the crew struggles with leadership under Rayner and residual issues from a previous time loop. They ultimately band together to retrieve the Enterprise from the wormhole.

The episode concludes with Moll sparing Book due to their family ties and Michael securing a crucial clue. Now, the next episode, i.e., episode 6, slated to release on May 2, 2024, will bring forth more developments to the ongoing narrative.
