A nice character episode for Picard, where answering a distress signal brings an old flame back into his life. It's nice to see Picard try to open up a little, as he faces The One That Got Away. And while it may have been intended as something of a romance episode for Picard, I like that it fully isn't; Jenice loves and stands by her husband, and while Picard obviously has some regrets, he respects that. It's very refreshing after nuBSG and SGU.
What I enjoyed most about the episode however is the time hiccups where time briefly loops in on itself, such as the scene where Riker, Data & Picard find themselves re-experiencing entering the turbolift. Once the time loop ends they now haven't entered the turbolift, yet they still have the memory of having done so. I love wibley-wobley timey-wimey stuff like that.
