* DownerEnding: Bariel thinks preserving the good memory of Kai Opaka is worth letting the blackhearted SmugSnake Winn become her successor, but Kira clearly disagrees, but still has to suck it up, smile at that treacherous backstabber and pay her respects.

Added DiffLines:

* BackhandedCompliment: Winn has a biting one when Bareil offers a different viewpoint on whether the Prophets' love is conditional or not. She thanks him in her usual saccharine way for reminding everyone how easy it is to misinterpret prophecy.


* ThePowerOfLegacy: Bareil believes that it is more important that the Bajoran people's belief Kai Opaka remain unshakable and unblemished by a scandal than to prevent a politically-motivated rival from becoming her SuckSessor.

* RebuiltPedestal: Once she realizes why Bareil did it, she admires his willingness to sacrifice his own good name for the greater good.

* TheAlibi: Comes out too late, but Bareil had an ironclad alibi - transit logs show he was secluded in a monastery for ''weeks'' before the massacre, and the only communication log from that monastery during that time was ''after'' the massacre occurred. Bareil either forgot to erase them, or did not have access to them.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Kira expresses her feelings for Bareil to Odo, his body language betrays his shock, although he quickly covers himself by claiming he already knew. This is the first time we've gotten any indication that Odo's own feelings toward her aren't strictly professional.

Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: Bareil's actions provide a rare example of someone not upholding his own honor; instead, he protects Opaka's by TakingTheHeat for the massacre, even if that ensures that Winn becomes Kai.


* TheNeedsOfTheMany: Between 43 resistance members and ''1200'' innocent villagers, Kai Opaka made the hard choice—''especially'' hard, given that one of the former was her son.

** This also applies to Bareil TakingTheHeat for Opaka, as he decides that her legacy is more important to Bajor than his reputation.

Added DiffLines:

* PersonaNonGrata: Under the law following the Cardassian withdrawl, any Bajoran who collaborated with the Cardassians is exiled from the homeworld.


Between accusations and not so veiled contempt between her and Kira, an old Bajoran enters the stations, harmlessly bumping into another. He waves it off for a moment, but then notices the man. He's not just any Bajoran. He's Kubus Oak, former Cardassian collaborator during the occupation.

* AsYouKnow: Kira describes the Kendra Valley Massacre to Odo, ending with "You were here, you must have read [the suicide note]."


* LesCollaborateurs: Several Bajorans worked for the Cardassian government during the occupation. Their punishment for this is permanent exile from Bajor. Kira thinks that's ''way'' too generous.
