We cut to the Alliance base, where the Head Bellboy is meeting with two Men In Black. The Head Bellboy apologizes for keeping them waiting. The men explain that they've flown all the way out to the base because of the recent theft. They're looking for a girl. And as one of the men slides a picture of River across the meeting table, we see that he's wearing blue gloves on his hands. Both men are. That would have been shocking if…no, that would have never been shocking.
Next week: A salvage mission doesn't go as planned. Do they ever?
