ReWatchable is here for another episode! This week we discuss the sixth episode of Firefly, “Our Mrs. Reynolds.”
Don’t forget that this podcast is spoiler-free, featuring both Firefly fans and newbies. So it’s safe for everyone to listen!
-Everyone rates the episode differently – Tariq gives it a thumbs up, Karen gives it a thumbs down, and Caitlin gives it a thumbs sideways. Laura, ever the superfan, says it’s one of her favorite episodes.
-We all feel that Mal’s behavior in this episode just solidifies what we already thought of him.
-We all love seeing Inara on more of a human level, with a lot more emotion.
-Nearly everyone is surprised Inara is the only one rushing off to find Mal.
-Do we think Inara was falling for Saffron’s tricks before the alarms went off?
-Laura points out a possible mistake in the position of the doors for Mal’s room and Zoe’s room.
-We all love woozy Inara.
-We wonder if Inara feels relief or annoyance that Mal didn’t realize she kissed him.
-Laura tells us which Mad Men actress is in this episode. (And Tariq tells us what Andrew tweeted that made him want to watch the show.)
-Were we surprised that Saffron was a bad guy?
-Were the townies from the beginning of the episodes in on Saffron’s scheme? We’re confused.
-Laura then asks us a loaded question: Is Saffron amoral or immoral?
-There’s been a huge debate about the fact that Mal hit Saffron at the end of the episode. We weigh in.
-Then Laura tells us about a crazy conspiracy theory. (Read the essay she refers to here — but at your own risk!)
-Did we miss Simon and River?
-Tariq feels self conscious about sharing his theories since he’s a newbie (Hint: He still thinks Shepherd Book is evil.)
-Of course there are Jayne and Vera fics. Of course. (And Caitlin approves. Check one out for yourself.)
-Karen is wary of Jayne’s viciousness.
-Laura and Tariq wonder exactly how the poisonous lipstick works. We have theories.
-Next up is “Jaynestown”! Laura warns us against “The Ballad of Jayne.”
