Great episode about Bajor. When the leader of the provisional government dies, Kai Winn is appointed his replacement, making her both the spiritual leader and the leader of the government…and this is a little too much power, especially for someone like Winn. Winn wants to get some farm equipment from Kira’s old resistance leader, and asks Kira to handle the task of convincing him to give it up.
It was nice to finally have an episode in which Winn didn’t get everything she was hoping for in the end. She finally crossed a line, and as a result it pushed some of her support away. I just found it refreshing to finally have her lose a bit.
