||An odd comment on Odo's identity. It seemed to be an attempt to make him make sense of how different he really is, and the character of Laas was simply a vehicle to allow him to do that. Laas seemed to have some of the detached quality of the female Founder, but was obviously very bitter about his previous treatment. We also had the strange spectacle of Quark going to Odo to try to talk some sense into him - one wonders whether he would have wanted Odo to go or stay. Overall, it was done well enough and performed well enough, making for a decent episode.
