Storyline

Garak's shop explodes. Luckily the tailor isn't hurt badly, and Odo immediately expects foul play. Odo asks Garak if he can think of possible suspects, but the Cardassian seems rather uninterested, and frustrates Odo's investigation. After evidence of a pheromonic sensor in the bomb - a method favored by Flaxian assassins, and a Flaxian had just arrived on the station prior to the explosion, Odo decides to interrogate him, but his investigation won't stop at the Flaxian... Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

[first lines]
Elim Garak: I'm sorry, Doctor, I just don't see the value of this man's work.
Dr. Julian Bashir: But Garak, Shakespeare is one of the giants of Human literature.
Elim Garak: I knew Brutus was going to kill Caesar in the first act; but Caesar didn't figure it out until the knife was in his back.
Dr. Julian Bashir: But that's what makes it a tragedy. Caesar couldn't conceive that his best friend would plot to kill him.
Elim Garak: Tragedy is not the word I'd use. Farce would be more appropriate.

Oh, that tricky Garak.....
24 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The bromance between Dr. Bashir and Garak is almost cut short when someone tries to blow up Garak. He manages to survive but the question now is WHO is trying to kill him. Why? Well, he IS Garak! Naturally, Odo heads the investigation and the trail leads several directions--to an assassin who is himself soon killed by the Romulans and it all ends with someone in Cardassia named Tain (Paul Dooley). What's up with all this? After all this, you learn quite a bit--and that it's only the first in a multi-part episode.

All in all, this is a decent episode--full of intrigue, explosions and Odo being grouchy. Worth seeing.
