The first three parts of Deep Space Nine's final chapter set up key plotlines that set the Dominion War's resolution in motion. It also set our characters on courses that would eventually lead them down separate paths. In the final piece of the initial four-episode block, the Dominion turns to The Breen Factor to break a stalemate in the war while the chasm between Cardassia and the Dominion widens—turning Damar into an unlikely object of viewer admiration. Initial plotlines are wrapped up while new threads are laid out.

In this episode of The Orb hosts Christopher Jones and Matthew Rushing continue our series of shows that will take you through the entire nine-part, ten-hour Deep Space Nine finale with the fourth episode in the story, "The Changing Face of Evil." We discuss how the writers sought to contrast everyday life with the stress of war, the fiery end of the Defiant, Ezri and Bashir's love dance, the unmasking of Dukat, and Damar's gambit.
