Star Trek The Original Series Rewatch: "Requiem for Methuselah"
Kirk falls in love with an android and meets Leonardo da Vinci, Brahms, Lazarus, Alexander the Great -- AND IT'S ALL THE SAME GUY! The TOS Rewatch holds a "Requiem for Methuselah." (Yeah, he's Methuselah, too......)

An excerpt:
I’m of two minds about the ending of this episode. On the one hand, Spock just altering Kirk’s memories without his consent is, to say the least, appalling. It’s a horrid violation, a despicable act, for all that it comes from a place of love (the very love McCoy had just accused him of not being able to feel), as he simply wishes to stop his friend’s pain. But it’s a horrible, horrible thing to do.

On the other hand, I kinda wish Spock had turned, reached through the screen, and given me the same treatment so I wouldn’t have to remember this abomination.
