Awww, this situation sucks for everyone, though of course I hope it'll end up sucking worst for the agent soon.
It's interesting that now it's considered "OK" to admit that Nerik was a dissident. That's fortunate for Cardassia.
I think Jarol did a good job in getting her point across to "little Zamarran." She was able to do it in a way that didn't sound like barking an order to get his head straight, and I think that's important. In general I think she's really learned a lot of tact and that's a good thing. (Though of course a purring cat at one's side is also helpful towards preventing outbursts...not that I think she's that prone to them at this stage in her life, but still.
I would love for there to be a way for both missions to succeed, though...
