[Firefly] "The Message"

For (I think) the first time I did NOT get teary at the voiceover.

Mal in that halo of light when Tracey's dying (and then leaning on the railing when Womack comes) reminds me so much of some of the shots from Serenity when he's taking charge. And yes, not telling Tracey the plan was STUPID, but as has been discussed: Mal gives orders and expects people to follow them, and does not appreciate having to explain himself to people.


I had heard talk of how "The Message" was like a funeral/farewell to the show for Joss&co. but had not known until today -- via teh Internet, of course -- that it was the last episode filmed (at which point they knew the show had been canceled).
