Re: DS9 S7: What You Leave Behind

'Rushed' is the word that comes to mind when I think of the last 4-5 episode arc of DS9. After wasting so much precious time with pointless episodes in the beginning of this season, they ran out of time and now everything feels cramped.

Now, I'm a sucker for happy endings. After 7 years of watching this motley crew, I want to feel happy knowing everything stays the same. There seems to be absolutely no reason for O'Brien to leave, he just does. Odo could just as well return after healing the Link. I've always found a certain racism implied in his "my people"-routine. He has to be among his own kind, this sounds like an anti-rainbow message to me.
Sisko shouldn't die - in a stupid, unexciting showdown no less - he should build his frickin' house on Bajor and be happy there.
Damar's death is pointless too. Maybe just, but ultimately pointless.

The montages - I don't dislike them as a device, but they were badly done. O'Brien-Bashir was great and brought some tears to my eyes. Odo-Kira was horrible, just two scenes from one episode. Both of them deserved their own montage. But Worf's montage beats that: NO JADZIA. Fuck you Rick Berman! You think Terry Farrell cared? I think she couldn't give a fuck. But the fans, who have loved Jadzia for 6 long years, who have rooted for her and Worf - WE CARE! And all we get is Worf and Ezri. That alone costs this episode two stars at least!
