It's a lazy thing to say, but I just find this episode to be boring. And that's a real shame because it has a lot going on and it should have been much more enjoyable. Maybe it's just the concept of a religious cult that instantly makes me want to switch off.
This is still a great character piece for both Kira and Dukat. They're complex relationship has a lot of depth by this point, and it's fascinating to see their characters growth here. Kira reacts to everything in far more subdued way that she once would have, using words, logical arguments and restraint rather than aggressively lashing out. It also looks like Dukat genuinely believes in the pah-wraiths even through his own egotistical needs.
This is the third time we've been to Empok Nor, but it's the first time where it's felt like the DS9 set slightly redressed. A good way to save money, unfortunately it takes me out of the episode.
The episode has a couple of genuine "oh, shit!" moments - the reveal of the baby, the airlock sequence (why would she agree to meet there?) and Dukat's fake pill - which help it along, but this is all a bit too lacklustre for me. I'm also frustrated at how gullible the people shown here are.
