Thine Own Self - 7.16
Reader Erika C. emailed us about this ep a few weeks ago and RIGHTLY SO because a bunch of it takes place on a REN FAIRE PLANET. Let’s dive right in.
The episode actually starts with some great wigs, and some great women attached to those wigs:
Hmm? Yes, it did hurt when I fell from Heaven, actually, do you have an ice pack
Troi’s hairstyle is called an “Inverse Picard”
Crusher and Troi are chatting about Troi’s plans to take the bridge officer test. It’s a nice, Bechdel-test-passing scene. With wigs that would make RuPaul proud.
But on to the real meat and potatoes of this episode: REN FAIRE PLAAANET.
