Maybe this is a dream sequence. I hope so. I loved Harcourt Fenton Mudd on TOS. He was a con artist, a scoundrel, he was NOT a killer. He was comic relief on the series. He embodied yes there are master criminals in the future but don’t worry by and large they are fairly harmless.
When Kirk listed his past crimes killing was not one of them. So why is he killing so many.
Harcourt Fenton Mudd was never considered a killer. Don’t you think Kirk would have mentioned it. Now it makes my memories of those two episodes different.
I know they wanted to make Discovery dark but lines should not have been crossed. This was one of them. This completely changes the character.
Tell me I witnessed a dream.
