Storyline

When Mal bumps in to his ex-wife, Saffron, he has to make a difficult decision whether or not to trust her as she offers the crew the chance to make a handsome profit from a mission that will take them to the planet Balerephon, where they'll have to steal a heavily guarded, priceless Earth antique. However, Inara does not trust Saffron from the last time (see 'Our Mrs. Reynolds') and plots with Mal to have an alternate plan. Meanwhile, Jayne is concerned that Simon and River will discover that he sold them out to the Alliance on Ariel. Written by Shiro

Trivia

While Mal, Saffron, and Durran are having their confrontation in the artifacts room, Mal sarcastically calls her "YoSaffBridge." This is a contraction of all the aliases he has heard her use during their acquaintance (Yolanda, Saffron, and Bridget). Interestingly, the English-language DVD subtitle for the made-up name "YoSaffBridge" misidentifies it as a Chinese word. See more »

Goofs

In Firefly: Serenity, Mal is shot in his left arm, grazing it. In the Firefly: The Train Job, Mal receives a knife wound in his right shoulder. In Firefly: Shindig he is stabbed by a sword in his right side. In Firefly: Out of Gas he is shot through the stomach near his sternum. None of these scars are visible when Mal is seen naked in the frame story of "Trash". See more »

The return of Saffron
24 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The episode opens with Mal sitting naked on a rock in the middle of a desert so it is clear that something hasn't gone perfectly to plan! The action then flashes back a few days to the time Mal meets up with his old friend Monty, things go well until Monty introduces his fiancée Bridget... AKA Saffron who we first encountered in 'Our Mrs Reynolds. Monty leaves them both when he learns the truth; Mal isn't pleased to be with Saffron again but she makes him a proposal that could be profitable... so long as they are careful not to turn their backs on her. The proposal is that they steal a priceless laser weapon from a wealthy collector on the planet Bellerophon; she already has all the codes to access the building; they just need to figure out how to remove the weapon without setting off the alarms. While the robbery is taking place the owner turns up and it becomes apparent why Saffron has all the codes; she is married to him as well! I won't spoil how it works out but don't forget Mal's first scene!

This was another fun episode; Christina Hendricks was great as Saffron; it is a shame that her character only appeared in two episode; no doubt we would have seen more of the character if the series hadn't been cancelled ridiculously prematurely. The story was enjoyable even if it isn't the best of the series. Away from the robbery there are several good scenes including a discussion between Inara and Mal and the classic moment where River informs Jayne that she could kill him with her brain... River might not say much but what she does say is usually hilarious; Summer Glau is great in the role!
