^^Ree didn't go insane. By the standards of his species, his behavior was perfectly normative, a natural parenting instinct -- it just manifested in an inappropriate context, triggered by psychic influence from Deanna. (By analogy, imagine if, when Lwaxana Troi was broadcasting romantic urges in DS9: "Fascination," she had sent a nearby Vulcan into premature pon farr.)

Otherwise, thanks!
When "Fascination" and "Sarek" were mentioned in OaTS, I remember thinking at the time that it made sense that Deanna's and Tuvok's psychic influence in Sickbay in combination with Titan's being in danger at the time could have caused Ree's natural instincts to take over.
