Recap: Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 06 E 21 The Reckoning
An ancient tablet nets Sisko another visit from the Prophets. And they speak of a reckoning that's about to test Sisko's faith, Kai Winn's faith and rock the station.
  • Abandon Ship: Sisko orders the station evacuated so the fight can occur without endangering innocent lives.
  • Beam-O-War: And the Prophet's beam almost wins.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Jake previously spoke of his desire to see a Pah-Wraith. He gets his wish and then some.
  • Big "NO!": The Prophet when it realizes Winn has interfered in the fight.
  • Continuity Nod: Jake mentions two other times that Sisko's received visions from the Prophets.
    • And B'Hala is still being excavated.
  • Demonic Possession: Jake controlled by the Pah-Wraith, complete with Red Eyes, Take Warning.
  • Good Versus Evil: A Prophet vs a Pah-Wraith right on the promenade...and it's awesome.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Winn is in full jealousy mode. Kira can see right through it.
    "Kai Winn sees a martyr in the making — the last thing she wants is to spend the rest of her life standing in the shadow of a statue of Sisko."
  • Never Give the Captain a Straight Answer: Odo calls Sisko to the promenade and says he'll "let [Sisko] be the judge" of whether or not what's going on is a problem. Somewhat Justified in that only The Sisko knows whether or not a Prophet possessing Kira is a problem.
  • Oh, Crap: Sisko's reaction to the Pah-Wraith possessing Jake.
  • Psychic Nosebleed: Kira during the fight.
  • Spanner in the Works: The Prophet is within a few moments of defeating the Pah-Wraith...then Winn stops the fighting due to her jealousy of Sisko.
  • Take Me Instead: Sisko offers himself to the Pah-Wraith to save his son. Doesn't go over well.
  • Voice of the Legion: Both Kira and Jake get this during their possession. Though Jake's is more demonic sounding.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Kira chews Winn out for (once again) letting her ambition and jealousy override her service to the Prophets.
    • Before that, Winn gives Sisko one for shattering the tablet, even though it was necessary to release the Prophet and Pah-Wraith.
    • And before that, Sisko gets one from Admiral Ross (off-screen) for taking the tablet in the first place.
  • Willing Channeler: Kira for the Prophet.
