She left a show that she hated working on, only for both the quality of the show itself and the behind-the-scenes environment to improve drastically not long after she was written out. It's possible that she stands by her decision to leave, but also regrets not being on the show once it had stopped being an awkward, fumbling clusterfuck run by people who (allegedly) once told her that her job was to stand around and look pretty while the captain and first officer got all the interesting shit to do. That would explain the evasiveness, too, because how exactly do you put that into words?

It ended with a bang thanks to the fans, too. After this episode wrapped, and the viewers had taken the time to process what they'd just watched, they all got up from in front of their TV sets, found the nearest wall and banged their collective heads against them in unison.

Well, we know that Riker can't be watching the events exactly as they unfolded, because he interacts with the Enterprise characters and the characters react to his words, so he's altered the course of events in the program anyway.

You know, there were many, many times I wished more interesting characters/a more interesting show would take over when I was watching a particularly rancid episode of Enterprise.

....Be careful what you wish for, I guess.

Mirror Archer doesn't have an indoor voice and appears to have an adversarial relationship with his own neck (keep an eye on it throughout the two-parter - it looks like his neck's trying to run away from his mouth to escape the megalomaniacal yelling. It's quite a sight), so he acts like a petulant, xenophobic fuckup with no perspective whatsoever....loudly. Archer Prime is a more subdued petulant, xenophobic fuckup.

Seriously, though, it really says a lot that Archer's evil counterpart is so similar to regular Archer at his worst.

OK, that's certainly understandable. I enjoy Mirror Archer's absurd hamming immensely, but we all have different tastes.

"Unfortunately"? The Mirror Universe is inherently ridiculous, so going full Shatner felt very appropriate.

She won't last a week, sure, but lasting more than four days would probably be a record-breaking reign as Emperor, given the ridiculous amount of backstabbing in the mirror universe. The average tenure of anyone in any kind of position of power is probably measured in hours.

.....Only one episode per series? That's surprising.

Actually, no. NONE OF THE FUCKS. Keep this show and these writers at least fifty miles away from anything even vaguely related to sex for the rest of their lives!
