- Author's Saving Throw: When the writers realized in the aftermath of "The Inner Light" just how long someone would be haunted by the experience Picard had, they specifically included a follow-up on that story in this episode.
- Tear Jerker:
- If you bawled over "The Inner Light," the Call-Back here might just bring up whatever tears you had left.
- Jean-Luc and Nella ultimately having to sacrifice their relationship.
