Storyline

River has a daydream and holds one of Jayne's weapon believing it was a tree branch; suddenly she awakes and sees Mal and the crew scary. River overhears Mal and the crew discussing about her and she feels rejected. Meanwhile, the ruthless bounty hunter Jubal Early, who has tracked down River, boards the Serenity while everybody is sleeping. He subdues Mal and locks the crew in the cabins; ties Kaylee up in the engine room; hits Shepherd Book on the head; and he finally captures Simon to force him to deliver his sister. However River is missing and out of the blue, she tells through the communication system that she felt rejected and had melted away becoming part of Serenity. The skeptical Early does not believe first, but soon she is convinced she is telling the truth. What will happen to River? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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.
