This ending was about Sisko truly being the Emissary and making the Prophets put up or shut up with regard to Bajor, and to just see it as a DEM, IMO, misses the whole point of Sisko's arc.
Quite right. As I've been saying, the people arguing that it's a deus ex machina are focusing only on the plot, on who does what, and that's the wrong way to look at it, because the DS9 writing staff, as proteges of Michael Piller, followed his philosophy of approaching everything from the perspective of character first and foremost.
