Jayne: That's what I'm sayin'.

Meanwhile Mal an Nandi feel attracted for each other hurting the feelings of Inara.

"Heart of Gold" is an episode of "Firefly" full of action and feelings. Inara shows her feelings for Mal but does not disclose to him. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Heart of Gold"
