^Indeed. I actually agree on that--you may recall my "DS9 Season 8" thread, in which I reflected on the possibility of, say, a three-month gap between "The Changing Face Of Evil" and "When It Rains...", as "Changing" was pretty darn cliffhangar-worthy.
So...how much time span do you see between those two eps?
