He tells Sisko the main reason for putting the war hero on the station, is the escalating unrest on Bajor. While Kira's friends from the station say goodbye, she gets a sudden visit from Vedek Bareil, who invites her to the Vedek monastery, which she accepts. Soon after her arrival at the monastery, Kira finds life there is not for her, and gets restless. Bareil then shows her the monastery possesses of one the Orbs of the Prophets. Meanwhile, Quark has some important information for Odo. He has heard the Kressari, normally botanical DNA traders, have been supplying weapons to The Circle.

Director Corey Allen shot the scene in Kira's quarters in one continuous uninterrupted take. When the episode was edited together, the scene was intercut with various close-ups and reverse angles, but the master shot of the scene was one long take, something of which Allen was extremely proud.

Some would say that it would be inappropriate for Vedek Bareil to invite Kira (or any woman) to a monastery. A monastery is, by definition, a place where men can be free of the distractions women provide for men. However, this takes place in the Bajoran culture. As such, a monastery there is a different type of religious retreat, and the genders are free to mix. Even Vedek Winn was there. See more
Commander Sisko... You told me about the Kressari before you asked the favor regarding Kira... You could've tried to trade that information... for the favor.
I wouldn't do that.
I'll remember that about you.
