The scene where Inara boards Serenity and is introduced to the passengers was initially filmed with Inara's original actress Rebecca Gayheart
in the role, however Joss Whedon
already felt that Gayheart wasn't right in the role (due to a lack of energy with the other actors). Having already decided to replace her, Whedon then shot the scene entirely as single-shots only focusing on a single character, therefore when Morena Baccarin
was cast it was simply a case of filming her lines rather than reshooting the entire sequence. See more
In Episode 10 "War Stories" as Niska is torturing Captain Reynolds and cuts off his left ear. In a later shot, as he is attaching some kind of torture device to his chest, it shows his left ear has been cut off while his right is intact. See more
