I couldn't disagree with him more regarding Sisko's reactions to Jennifer's death. Both the actual death and his return to it later on, I love Avery's performance in these sequences. Maybe I'm in the minority, I dunno...but I don't care.
I agree with you, I think that these are standouts in the episode and really set this character apart from all that have come before him. He is a wounded man, what a place to begin a character arc!
