LadyGhosts of TV Past: Firefly Episode 5

Finally, an episode about River!  Up until now River has been like a weird little sprite who wanders on set every once in a while to do something strange and then wanders off again.  In “Safe” she finally gets some more screen time and even a little backstory.  I do love a good backstory.
