Warning! The following contains spoilers for the midseason premiere of Star Trek: Discovery! Read at your own risk.

Star Trek: Discovery returned to CBS All Access tonight, and there was not one boring moment to be found from start to finish. Trek veteran Jonathan Frakes was at the helm of unquestionably the biggest episode of the show's run to date, and he had tons to work with, as this episode was loaded with some big answers and major reveals that franchise fans should go nuts for. For those that may have missed a moment, or anyone who wants a little more insight, here were some of the midseason premiere's jaw-dropping moments:

Tyler Is Voq

In what was perhaps the most satisfying reveal of the night, Star Trek: Discovery's midseason premiere confirmed something the fanbase has suspected for a while now. After being haunted by a severe bout of disturbing imagery, Tyler went to L'Rell's cell and demanded answers about what happened to him. L'Rell began a Klingon prayer, which makes Tyler start to speak like Voq, and he also regained memories of being a Klingon. Something went wrong, though, and Tyler returned to his human self, although the victory would only be short-lived, since the Lieutenant continued struggling with his identity for the whole episode.

One snap of Lieutenant Commander Culber's neck later, and Voq once more seemed to be fully aware of who he was. While he may no longer be confused, it was made clear in the episode that the transformed Klingon still felt tied to the life he knew as Ash Tyler. The episode ended with Voq/Tyler telling Burnham he'd always protect her, although we'll see how much she'll want to protect him once she learns who he truly is.
