Critic Consensus: "Lethe" takes a twisty risk with established Star Trek lore to create a satisfyingly entertaining episode.

Critic reviews for Lethe
Discovery isn't screwing around when it comes to exposing Lorca's inner darkness, which is bringing true edge to the series.
This episode was fun and entertaining, and while the war was mentioned and on the background, the fact that they focus more on building characters and developing the relationships between them was what made it my favourite episode of the series so far.
Star Trek: Discovery has been getting tighter with each episode, but in last night's "Lethe," the show turned a corner into addictively good storytelling.
A series about war doesn't allow for much positive learning, and that's where Discovery fails its protagonist and many Star Trek fans who just want some fun exploring in the stars to start their week.
I like Kol; he's the only Klingon character with any pizzazz, and I can totally see the Empire uniting under him.
