He has an almost sexual reaction to the hawthorn flowers in the church and then again when he’s in Swann’s park when he sees Gilberte who is holding a spade. Is this a death image? Is there a Freudian meaning here? At least now I know why it’s called Swann’s Way because of which door they exit when they go on a walk all together while Francoise is probably killing another chicken “filthy creature”.

Episode 5-26, Time’s Arrow Part I
Strange season ending cliffhanger but it’s a really fun episode with a genuine mystery. I have no idea where this is leading since I’ve never seen this one before. I love the moment when Data looks first at Troi then at Riker as he tries to figure out why the are acting strange around him. It’s amazing how human Data feels over these past 5 seasons without Spiner having to overact it, it’s so subtle that you almost don’t realize he’s acting.
Episode 5-25, The Inner Light
I’d argue this might be the greatest science fiction story ever told. I mean, this episode is perfection in every way, especially Stewart’s acting. It’s not a flashy episode or epic or grand, it’s just the simple story of a civilization that didn’t want to be forgotten. Heartbreaking episode.
