Trivia

The fact that Tracy speaks to Kaylee about Zoe being married in the opening re-cap (which occurs in Firefly: The Message (2003)) can be viewed as a continuity error, or as incorrectly classified as an error. In the order the episodes were aired, this conversation has not happened, but in the order they were intended to be aired, it would have been in the previous episode. See more »

Goofs

The "newborn" baby is shown holding its head up. This doesn't happen until around the third month. See more »

Quotes

Petaline: Ranse, this is Jonah. Say hi to daddy, Jonah.

Inara receives a distress call from her old friend Nandi, who owns a brothel on a moon. Mal and his crew heads to the place and they learn that the leader of the town Rance Burgess has an infertile wife and the prostitute Petaline is pregnant of him. Now he wants the baby to raise with his family. Mal and his crew decide to help Nandi, Petaline and the other girls, defending the brothel from Rance Burgess. 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"
