In my eyes, this episode has a lot going for it. For one, it features the Romulans (yay!). Between the Cardassians, Bajorans, Ferengi, Dominion, and Klingons, the Romulans got the short straw in development on Deep Space Nine, so getting an episode set on Romulus, learning about the Tal'Shiar again and getting some inside POV on their government is not a bad thing. This one also has the return of Sloan and Section 31. William Sadler always brings something good to that character in his handful of appearances on the show and the concept of Section 31 in the apparent utopic Star Trek universe is an enthralling concept. As in "Inquisition" and "In the Pale Moonlight" from last season and "Past Tense" long before that, viewers are left to question when the ends do justify the means, whether a group like Section 31 should be supported or opposed. Unfortunately, this question is better addressed in the aforementioned episodes. While this hour does introduce several interesting elements, overall the episode is rather average. At times the story seems slow, at the end it gets a little rushed, and when it's all said and done I had the feeling that not all that much happened in the episode. The twists at the end, however, with the fate of (recast) Senator Creetak, the truth about Ross, and Sloan are all pretty good leaving an interesting, if only above average, episode.
