[TNG] Season 4, Episode 3: Brothers

Not even Wesley can figure out how to overcome Data.
Data drives Enterprise to some location and then beams himself off of the ship.
A program was activated by Data’s creator to make him go home.
ugh Lore shows up too.
Back on Enterprise, there’s a kid named Willie Potts. He’s gonna die or something, but the main thing to remember is that the writers named a kid Willie Potts and expected us to take him seriously.
Soong is going to die too.
But he made Data an emotion chip, establishing an annoying plot point that’ll come up all the time later in the show.
Lore tricks Soong into putting the emotion chip into him.
Enterprise shows up, but it’s too late. Lore got away. Who cares though, the real question is what will happen to Willie Potts??
