The Serenity brings the cattle to a plain and, when Mal is negotiating the selling with the traders, there is a shootout and Shepherd Book is hit. Meanwhile Dr. Simon and River are kidnapped by the residents to work in an isolated area. But Mal needs to leave the planet to seek help for Book and leaves the siblings behind. When the locals discover that River can read minds, they believe she is a witch and wants to burn her at the stake. Written by
