Picard 1x08 Broken Pieces trailer and Nepenthe round-up

CBS have released a trailer for next week's eight episode of Picard, Broken Pieces. It looks like a lot is about to happen! And a new blurb for the episode also suggest some of the show's mysteries will finally been resolved:
When devastating truths behind the Mars attack are revealed, Picard realizes just how far many will go to preserve secrets stretching back generations, all while the La Sirena crew grapples with secrets and revelations of their own. Narissa directs her guards to capture Elnor, setting off an unexpected chain of events on the Borg cube.

Showrunner Michael Chabon has also revealed the titles of the final episodes of the series, in his latest Instagram stories Q and A. The last two episodes will be a two parter called Et in Arcadia Ego (Parts 1 and 2 of course).

Not getting too far ahead of ourselves though, this week's The Ready Room, as ever included a clip from next week's episode. This week's guests, very enjoyably, were Jonathan Frakes and Brent Spiner, and it also has two featurettes on this week's Nepenthe, looking at the return of Riker and Troi, and making pizza. As ever you can also watch on, Facebook, or Instagram, if YouTube's geolocked you out below:

There's also an extra video (up on this week, with a brief interview by Jordan Hoffman with Jonathan Del Arco talking about Hugh's fate in the show.

Make sure you also check out Deadline's Picard podcast to dive even deeper into the production of the show. This week's guests are showrunner Michael Chabon and visual effects supervisor Jason Zimmerman.

More frivolously CBS social media have released a couple more of their great travel poster series, this time looking at Nepenthe:

CBS have also released a couple of extra stills from the dinner scene in Nepenthe:

And finally, there's also a whole bunch of clips from the previous episode, The Impossible Box, now online:

Picard is available now on CBS All Access in the US, Bell Media services in Canada, and Amazon Prime Video in most of the rest of the world.

That final clip with 7 is either a scene that will blow all our minds or a massive tease.
