Re: DS9 S5: Ties of Blood and Water

Although you might not agree...I found that last scene very powerful, with Kira's narration. The emotional wringer this episode puts you through...the joy at seeing them reunited (and I wonder if there was a bit more contact than what was hinted at, personally), the shock of realizing that Ghemor was going to die, Kira's dedication...at first...

And then the way she snapped and lashed out at him--at that point, I wanted to physically SMACK her because what she did to him was so completely disgusting and wrong.

But the end, when she came around...I think that narration scene was necessary because we needed to see just how much she had let herself *feel*, while still allowing Ghemor the dignity to pass without us (the viewers) gawking. Kira had to redeem herself, as well as relate what happened; otherwise, I would not have accepted it.

In the end, it was incredibly poignant, powerful, and one of my favorite DS9 episodes, hands down.
