Ah yes, the goons. Goon Number One shouts out to Goon Number Two that Serenity is on the way. Goon Number Two says, "That girl's a wonder," in case any of us were unclear as to who Saffron was working for and wanted to throw her against the wall and demand that she tell us. The goons start to prepare for the ship's arrival.
Back on Serenity, Wash and Kaylee have gotten some of their monitoring systems back up, but they still don't have control of the ship. They're heading somewhere. Wash tries to get a "visual," but comes up with nothing on his monitor but a big circle of electromagnetic fuzz. Mal and Book both seem to figure out what it is at the same time -- some sort of "net."
We cut to the goons' station for a full view. The circle is actually a giant hexagon. The nodes in the center produce a giant web of electrical current. It's a cosmic bug zapper.
Commercials. When we return, Mal and Book take turns explaining that they're on their way to a space chop-shop. Ships are hijacked there, stripped down, and sold for parts. Wash doesn't think that sounds too scary. Mal explains that the bug zapper used to trap the ship will also kill any living creatures on board. Book goes into further detail about chop-shop techniques, prompting Jayne to wonder (again) how Book knows so much about criminal techniques. Mal orders Kaylee to keep working on getting them control of the ship while he tries to figure out a Plan B. He seems to think of something fairly quickly, and uses his communicator to order Zoe to prepare their spacesuits. Then he tells Jayne to go get Vera.
