Cut to Wash and Kaylee, looking over the wiring and admiring Saffron's handiwork. Saffron moved maybe three wires around, but that's apparently enough to screw up the ship's systems for quite a while. Everybody argues. Kaylee points out that it was Mal's make-out session that got them in this situation. Jayne says, "That's why I never kiss 'em on the mouth." Everybody stops for a moment to stare at Jayne. That line reminds me of a naughty saying about Marines, but I'm not going to repeat it. I've heard plenty of assurances that it's true, though. Kaylee observes that Saffron really knows her ships. Inara pipes up that she knew more than that. Based on her seduction techniques, she's certain that Saffron has had companion training at the Academy. So the Academy trains space hookers and does human experiments? Maybe River was an attempt to create a psychic prostitute, who could use her powers to determine the best way to "satisfy" her clients. And in the future, I guess women have totally lost their ability to be seductive without special training. Mal asks Inara how she knows about Saffron's techniques. She reveals that Saffron tried to seduce her, too. Mal stammers for a few seconds while waiting for his mind to stop blowing and asks if Saffron got anywhere. Inara gives him a "This is not the letters page of Space Hustler" look and says that she didn't. Mal blathers about how any guy would have kissed her under the circumstances. Zoe points out that Wash didn't. Mal says, "But she was naked! And all…articulate." Can we get back to the damned plot please?
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.
