Trivia

The bounty hunter, Jubal Early, was named after layer and Confederate general, Jubal Anderson Early (November 3, 1816 - March 2, 1894), who attempted (and failed) to invade Washington, D.C. in 1864. Joss Whedon named the character as such after hearing that Nathan Fillion is related to the general, who died in 1894. Jubal Early is also the name of a ferry between the Maryland and Virginia sides of the Potomac River. See more »

Beautiful- The Highlight of Whedon's Career
17 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is a real stunner through and through. From the opening walking shot to the breathtaking scene in space to the final scene with the marble, this episode is a masterpiece if only due to its cinematography.

What makes it an eternal classic is the fact that on a conceptual level it integrates 14 episodes of plot, reveals a huge mystery, resolves a character, presents the fantastical without appearing fake or oblique, presents the ideas of choice and justice as fundamental, and thereby delivers the greatest ensemble television piece ever to have existed and be rewarded with cancellation because of its virtues.
