dreammeanyway: PTSD

How did you guys react to it?

Personally, I thought it would mess with my head like Trials did. But I found it rather cathartic; I cried most of the time, heh.

I thought Olivia's symptoms were very realistic- the shaking, the spacing out, the not wanting to talk to her friends...

i felt it was very realistic...i thought i would react badly to it too..but suprisingly i was more proud of Mariskas performance then anything else, she is beyond amazing how well and how true she stays to the role

I thought it was realistic too. I'm glad that since this haoppened to Olivia they are showing what it really does to people.

I had no reaction to it. I didn't find it realistic, but reproducing PTSD symptoms within a one-hour crime drama without coming off as incredibly heavy-handed would have been miraculous. Not a bad episode, given that.

The episode that contained the assault (was that Trials?) had me pretty freaked out, because it was nearly identical to one of my own memories (sans prison setting, and different age.)
