Why didn't she talk? I assume that's going to be what the next episode is about.I feel weird about this episode - I enjoyed it, but the holes oh god the holes are eating at my brain.
The Mousetrap doesn't work. It's based on the idea that the Red Angel appears to save Burnham - except that's based on two data points, neither of which support the Mousetrap.
First: the Red Angel appeared to save Michael on the asteroid. Except she didn't save Michael, as far as we know? Unless I misremember, she just appeared and walked towards an awe-struck Michael then vanished as Pike appeared to beam her out. So that one doesn't fit the theory, since Michael would have lived without the Red Angel.
Second: when Michael was in deadly danger as a child, the Red Angel appeared to Spock and told him where she could be found, letting him tell their parents, who then saved her. So this one was in response to Michael being under threat of death - but the Red Angel didn't appear at her time or location. She appeared earlier, with enough time to tell Spock, for Spock to pass on the message, and then for travel time.
So, evidence that the Angel will appear at a dying Michael's side to get caught in the Mousetrap? I don't see it.
Worse though: why doesn't the Red Angel just explain herself? They ask that question and brush it aside with the suit's radiation limiting traditional radio and sensor communication. But she could communicate with child-Spock well enough to pass on Michael's location... so why not have a word with adult-Spock?
