Strange Bedfellows

**** (4 stars out of 5)
The exciting and wonderfully serialized Final Chapter continues! Thot Gor of the Breen Confederacy meets with the Founder face-to-... whatever. Their alliance hopes to erase the Federation from the face of the galaxy. Also, as a minor point, the Changelings give some Cardassian planets to the Breen. Since Cardassians are an infinitely generous and forgiving people, this will never have any consequences at all.

Weyoun cages Worf and Ezri together, because he's a little too eager to watch some interspecies mating. What a wonderful creep! (Although the hanging upside down and barfing probably isn't part of it.) Unfortunately, they just TALK about their feelings and discover they aren't really in love. Poor Weyoun! Also, Worf breaks the Vorta Voyeur's neck, so... mood killer. Somebody uncork Weyoun 8!

Martok congratulates Sisko on entering the "long, grueling, intoxicating war" of marriage. In Martok's view, the husband wins some battles... and the wife always wins the war. Martok knows whereof he speaks.

Damar, tossed aside for the shiny new Breen, watching his people slaughtered in droves in a war FAR less fun than marriage, and accidentally sober long enough to trip over his conscience, frees Worf and Dax to tell the Federation they have an ally on Cardassia.

And enemies on Bajor! Case in point, Winn is doinking False-Faced Dukat, and the "Strange Bedfellows" conspire to play pin the End On The Emissary. Winn learns that her visions have been coming from the Pah-Wraiths. Farmer Dukat is shocked, SHOCKED that such a thing... oh, never mind, yes, he loves the Pah-Wraiths too, and isn't that better anyway? Kira doesn't think so: she recommends Winn step down from the Space Papacy and find her heart and soul again. Winn, however, doesn't like to lose. Stepping down feels like losing. No, I don't think she'll be doing that. Devil Worship it is!
