I had to figure this would conjur up old, painful memories for Picard. Riker's been through what Picard experienced, only a hundred-fold times worse... perhaps more. What if any sanity remains must be so terribly tenuous.

Quite intense. Obviously, for Picard it brings up a lot of pained memories. For Riker it is a miracle he's alive but probably incredulous to be on the Big E with Picard, Troi, Steele ... it might help his recovery but it is also going to complicate matters.
Very effective use of an enduring episode. Four Lights alone sends chills up my spine. The spirit needed to overcome such pain and hatred is a lot and for someone to move on and recover from such an experience requires a lot of strength. I hope our characters have it.
