Following on from the excellent "Shindig" which ended with the crew taking aboard a shipment of cattle we learn what happens when they visit a remote planet to sell them. Once the cattle are offloaded the captain suggests that Simon and River join Kaylee and Inara in town as he doesn't want anything to go wrong with the trade. Of course things do go wrong and Shepherd Book gets shot when the local law men turn up to arrest the buyers. Normally they would get the doctor to help but it turns out that at the time Book was getting shot Simon was being kidnapped by a group of locals who wanted a doctor. Needing to find medical help Mal orders Wash to take off, there being no other facilities about they do the last thing Mal wants to do; seek assistance from the Alliance. At first they aren't keen to help but upon seeing the Shepherd's ID the can't help him fast enough. Meanwhile back on the planet Simon and River are having problems; when River knows what has happened to a child without being told the locals want to burn her for witchcraft.

This was another excellent episode which introduced a couple of interesting mysteries; just what was so special about Book's ID that it got him VIP treatment from the Alliance and how can River read minds? As with all episodes there are a few good laughs and the scene where River takes part in the town dance is delightful.
