Durran Haymer
Police Sergeant


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

Not again. Guest star Christina Hendrixs reappears as the vixen she is.
1 January 2007 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico USA) – See all my reviews

The no name doxie is back to dupe are BDHs. Once again are crew is no match for her cunningness. Its not for long before are crew once again is in chaos. She is found with a new man's man Monty an old friend of Mal and Zoe. With a new alias this time Bridgette. Mal spoils her scam on Monty. Saffron bamboozles her way on Serenity. Mal being the ever fool with SaffBridge puts her on board in a box. Should have left her on that black rock. After a bad day with Saffbridge Mal is in verbal battle with Inara. The ever tactical ambassador wounds Captain Malcolm Reynolds with an arrow straight to his pride. Mal trying to elevate his prestige with Inara other than being a common petty thief to her he buys into Saffbridge's plan of the heist of the universe. Big mistake. Luckily he knows that his crew will cover him. Hmmmm. While doing the job we find out that old Saffron is married to her mark going by the name Yolanda. Yosaffbridge and Mal now with feds in tow narrowly escape with the priceless prize. YoSaffBridge now as expected double crosses Mal, luckily his crew is not caught with their pants down. No but just as stranded. Luckily Inara the player of players covers their back to save some or one of their naked butts. A fun entertaining episode with what is she up to now. A great guest star of the series.
