So that's what happened to Dukat after the end of last season: he went nuts and they locked him in the loony bin.
I won't tell you much more, because this is an examination of his life after losing his daughter, space station and Empire. Bit of a rough deal, that. Some good dramatic bits and an interesting ending.
Which is to say that Dukat escapes and can now roam the Alpha Quadrant as a loose cannon. He's bound to show up sooner or later, just when you least expect him...
