||Shadowplay is one of those episodes that DS9 did quite often in Season 2, the unexpected twist. The main plot follows Odo with Dax along for support, which takes a while to build up steam but rapidly twists when it does. The subplot is Kira character building with just a little added in from Jake Sisko. Vedek Bareil makes an appearance, thanks to Quark it turns out, who is again up to no good. In all, expect a run of the mill DS9 episode which is by no means a bad thing. The first ten to twenty minutes are all buildup so might drag a little, patience is rewarded.
