Factoid : This entire episode began when somebody asked what would happen if Garak blew up his own shop. Soon the idea grew so large that it wouldn't fit a one hour episode, so the writers expanded it to a two parter!
Quote : "Well, the truth is usually just an excuse for a lack of imagination." - Garak to Bashir.

Plotline

After an explosion in Garaks shop nearly kills him, Odo must try to work his way through the net of lies that surrounds the Cardassian tailor. As Odo and Garak go to see Enabren Tain, former head of the Obsidian Order, a Romulan Warbird captures them. Odo is amazed to learn that the Romulans and Cardassians plan a joint strike against the Founders themselves - and is even more amazed when Garak quickly agrees to join them.
