Titled "En in Arcadia Ego, Part 1," it shares its name with a painting by Baroque artist Giovanni Francesco Barbieri. It translates to "I too was in Arcadia," or "Even in Arcadia, there am I." The "I" refers to death while "Arcadia" is referred to as a paradise or a utopian land.
"Even in utopia, there is death," which means death still exists in paradise; so brace yourselves because there's a potentially major death coming in these final episodes. Though it is yet to be confirmed, Star Trek titles have always had references, so it is possible that the title was based on something popular or known such as the painting as well.
Here's the synopsis for the upcoming episode:
Following an unconventional and dangerous transit, Picard and the crew finally arrive at Soji's home world, Coppelius. However, with Romulan warbirds on their tail, their arrival brings only greater danger as the crew discovers more than expected about the planet's inhabitants. The episode was directed by Akiva Goldsman, and was written by Michael Chabon & Ayelet Waldman from a story by Michael Chabon & Ayelet Waldman & Akiva Goldsman.
Star Trek: Picard returns Thursday, March 19 on CBS All Access.
