There are actually two way to approach that moment in the Death Knight backstory. If you wait long enough, your friend actually asks you to do it - because he/she trusts you to kill quickly, and with minimum pain. It's more a mercy killing by that point; the other option would be to leave your friend to the nonexistent mercies of the Lich King's inquisitors, after all.

After getting to the end of "Installation 18", I finally realized what good writing was involved in "Mindgames". In the secret Tal Shiar installation, you find a lab that is being used for indoctrination techniques similar to what you experienced.

My character's experiences in "Mindgames" had struck me more deeply than I had realized. I was angry. I kept looking for the option that would let me burn that installation to the ground and sow salt over its ashes. I wanted to see every sub-Romulan involved executed.

I can't recall the last time a video game did that to me...
