I selected this episode because of the Odo-Kira-Shakar dynamic.
We see Odo who is pining for Kira once again fail to act, as Shakar comes to the station and starts a relationship with her. We know this bothers Odo as he loses his focus and he lapses in his usual impeccable security.
This episode is a gut punch for those who are Odo fans, but it also the laying of bricks for a longer arc.
We also get a clue that Dax is somewhat of a prankster, messing with Odo's furniture.
All in all, the rest of the episode is solid, but does not advance other plotlines as much.
