With the Breen now part of the Dominion's alliance the position of the Cardassians is further weakened as Weyoun gives away an unspecified amount of their territory and sacrifices half a million Cardassian troops when he fails to provide the reinforcements Damar thought he had promised. Damar isn't the only person having problems on Cardassia; Ezri and Worf are locked in a cell awaiting execution. Back on DS9 Kai Winn learns that her vision wasn't from the prophets as she initially believed but from their evil counterparts the Pah-wraiths which leads her to realise she has gone astray, unfortunately she still doesn't see that she needs to step down but instead feels she can fix the problem, something that is bound to lead to things getting worse. This episode had some fun moments; Damar's reaction to Weyoun Seven's demise at the hands of Worf was priceless.

I enjoyed this episode, the Breen are a good new villain, made better by the fact that we never see them as they all wear masks and clothing that covers every inch of their bodies, we can't even understand what they are saying, it appears that only the Vorta can understand what they are saying.
