A mysterious sphere threatens the U.S.S. Discovery even as May, in her original form, implements a plan that puts Tilly's life in danger. Saru and Burnham's bond grows when Saru is forced to acknowledge a deeply unsettling Kelpien truth. Pike receives new intel on Spock from a loyal friend.

What were people's conclusions about what happened with Saru's ganglia? Has he become a special case because of his interactions with the sphere, or would this naturally happen to all Kelpiens if they didn't either get culled or commit suicide when the "disease"--which seems like a very unpleasant form of puberty--strikes?

^^It seems like the implication of the episode was that all Kelpians would survive the ejection of their ganglia if they lived normally.  Certainly, previews for upcoming episodes suggest it

^"This timeline" is meant to be the same timeline as every other Trek TV series, despite the differences in visual interpretation and detail. All the previous Trek shows and movies have similar differences in interpretation from one another, and there have always been fans who wanted to believe it put them in a separate reality (going all the way back to the original movies), but the conceit of the creators has always been that they're part of a single common history, and that hasn't changed except in the Bad Robot feature films.
