Complications with Zoe‘s pregnancy leave the crew of Serenity with a newborn baby to care for and a forced trip to an Alliance medical ship where the crew, to protect themselves and young Emma, must leave the injured ship’s first mate in the hands of their enemy.
That’s hardly the only trouble for the crew as Jayne leads the leaders of the new resistance to their messiah who (not surprisingly) has no interest in joining or leading their cause, especially after Mal correctly deduces that rebels have brought trouble right to his door.
Jayne swapping places with Zoe means we’re still without a full crew, and River‘s choice to put herself in a medically-induced coma to find more information like Miranda which can be uses as leverage against the Alliance proves the young woman’s timing hasn’t improved as it leaves her defenseless, and the ship down another crew member, when Jubal Early catches up with Serenity once more. Worth a look.
