Geordi is a character that continues to grow on me. His optimism and intelligence definitely come into play here, when he counteracts Ro's assertion that they're dead by coming up with a more rational explanation.
The best parts of this episode to me are the scenes where Ro and Geordi eavesdrop on other characters talking about them. I'd still like to hear what Riker would've said. "Sorry for sleeping with you when we lost our memories," LOL. And the way Data talked about Geordi was very endearing.
Speaking of Data, he really cracked me up this episode. I like when he's using that anion device to sweep away the Chronatoms, and Geordi keeps walking back and forth intentionally, to create more fields for Data to clean. Data furrows his brow each time and "vacuums" away the chronatoms. Haha. Also love how Geordi at the end is like "come on Data, figure it out..." while he is discussing what could be wrong.
Good one. TNG is on a hot streak.
