Discovery episode titles, previews, and Context is for Kings round-up

A roundup of previews and clips from forthcoming and the most recent Discovery episode below. But first, new episode titles!

Thanks to new Canadian TV listings, we now know episode five will be Choose Your Pain, and episode six will be Lethe. Additionally CBS have today announced the season will be split a little later, with the first block now running up to episode nine (rather than eight), which will be available from the 12th of November. The remaining six episodes will resume from January.

More imminently, here's a trailer for next week's fabulously named The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry:
















Looking back to the just released Context is for Kings, FanSets have just revealed the design for their EpisodePin for this episode, which features Burnham in her prisoner jumpsuit:


Speaking to TV Guide, Jason Issacs (Captain Lorca) spoke about his chamber of secrets, including identifying the monster from this episode as a tardigrade - A real tiny animal which the multi-limbed monster does indeed appear to be a giant version of:
We're losing this war and I've been given license to do whatever the hell is necessary to try and see if I can in any way shift the odds. And so I have in my private study area, anything I want including weapons, gasses, poisons, creatures... Anything that, if examined correctly, might give us an edge because we need something to turn the tide in the war. And that's why someone like me has been given this ship and given license to go off and -- not under the glare of anyone else's spotlight -- see if I can come up with a solution, any kind of creative solutions to this problem of imminent destruction.

So the tardigrade might be one, some of the Klingon weapons I've got might be it... The spores might be it. I just need something and I need it fast and I need people to help me, and hence, one of the reasons why I get Michael Burnham to be on my team. She is someone who's prepared to break the rules... Someone who's really smart strategically and someone who I think will ultimately be loyal to me since I've given her a second chance at life.
CBS have also released another clip from the episode, from the Glenn mission:



And a bunch of new stills:
