Odo, Sisko, Dax and Garak find themselves warped 7 years in the past and on Terok Nor. And Odo has to find a way out of the situation without revealing a dark secret about his past.
- My Greatest Failure: Odo let three innocent people take the fall for an attempted assassination on Dukat. His thinking about it at just the wrong time leads to the episode.
- Not So Different: Much like Kira, Odo has a dark secret from his time on Terok Nor. The episode even ends with them in opposite places from the end of "Necessary Evil".
