Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Rewatch: "Improbable Cause"

Garak's shop blows up -- and then things get really bizarre. The DS9 Rewatch kicks off the new year with some "Improbable Cause."

An excerpt:
Garak, of course, can’t think of anyone who would wish him harm. He also denies that he was in the Obsidian Order, and insists that his exile was due to not paying his taxes. Odo goes off to pursue the bullshit leads Garak gives him (dissatisfied customers, someone he owes money to, Kira), and Garak wonders why nobody believes him even when he’s being honest. Bashir tells him the story of the boy who cried wolf, with the moral that if you lie all the time, no one will believe you when you tell the truth. Garak, though, thinks there’s another moral: never tell the same lie twice.
