An easily excellent episode. So many threads coming together makes me so very happy. Ezri's best moment of the season comes when she puts the Klingon empire in its place, which is enough to fire up Worf to do the right thing. And how far Star Trek had come to be at the point where the right thing is for Worf to kill Gowron. Amazing moment.
I already mentioned Kira's development in my last post, but she continues to be awesome here. Her putting Damar in his place is a very powerful beat for both characters.
All of this talk of the final chapter has finally inspired me to start my own rewatch. I haven't watched DS9 all the way through for a few years now, so it's good to catch up again. Just finished season one tonight.
