FireflyFirefly is a top "Hey! Well Excuuuuuuuse Me Princess!" contender
Tuesday 5 April 2011, by Webmaster
Inara and Mal have the kind of strained relationship that leads to obsessive fans flipping out when the “characters” finally consummate their relationship. The Inara/Mal relationship can be almost perfectly encapsulated in this one quote from the episode Shindig:
Inara: You have a strange sense of nobility, Captain. You’ll lay a man out for implying I’m a whore, but you keep calling me one to my face.
Mal: I might not show respect for your job, but he didn’t respect you. That’s the difference. Inara, he doesn’t even see you.
Inara: Well, I guess death will solve the issue to everyone’s satisfaction.
I think that a big reason that fans are so up in arms about the premature canceling of this show is that we never got to see any sort of payoff in their relationship. Would it have been too much to have shown a passionate smooch?
