At a Sisko house party, Jadzia sees a musical instrument. Though she claims none of Dax's hosts had even the slightest musical ability, she is able to get music out of it. She plays a tune, but is frustrated she can't get it right. She gets obsessed by it, has trouble concentrating and starts behaving violently. When she gets hallucinations of a masked man who looks familiar, she is even more determined to find out what the music is, and Sisko suggests running it through the Federation database. Bashir discovers Jadzia's isoboramine levels are down, a neurotransmitter between host and symbiont. Bashir has no clue why, and sees no alternative than to take her to Trill, where doctors of the Symbiosis Commission will examine her. Written by

This was also the first episode to establish that the Trill have surnames, which are replaced by the symbiont's name upon joining. Jadzia's original given name was never given during the series (nor was Curzon's or any of the hosts that preceded Joran), though Ezri's was revealed in "Prodigal Daughter" to be Tigan. See more
