Re: EpDis: Rising Star

That's an excellent analysis of the Ivanova character. I had never really thought of it, but now that you mention it, yes I can see a parallel with the Spock death scene.

It is definitely true that after I watched this episode, the re-watching of any previous episodes with Ivanova and Marcus felt rather different to me.

I also probably never considered how big a shift that scene was from anything we saw her do before. She definitely looks hurt when "evil" Talia comes out and sort of taunts her, but that's about all we get. When her old boyfriend turns out to be homeguard she mostly just looks disgusted. She did cry at her father's service, but that took some effort

I would have loved to have seen how the character evolved after this traumatic event ... Don't we all? Alas.
