Jewel Staite, best known for playing Kaylee in Firefly and Serenity and Dr. Jennifer Keller from Stargate: Atlantis, has some wacky notions on how Firefly should have ended. First, she believes Matthew Fox should have been cast in season six, which means apparently the show would have become a long running series. Also, Jayne would be gladly taking tips from his captain River, who is now stable enough to run her own ship. Plus, Mal would have been in love with Zoe the whole time. She answered the question on Blastr:
Well, I wouldn’t have, now would I? But in my perfect imagination, it ends a little something like this: Nine glorious seasons later, Kaylee and Simon have had several beautiful brunette babies, a couple of which have turned out to be crazy geniuses like their Auntie River (Firefly: the Next Generation?), and one who mysteriously looks a lot like Matthew Fox, who became a regular cast member in season six. River has finally found her marbles and is now captaining her own ship with her loyal second-in-command, Jayne, who claims that River is the best captain he’s ever known. Saffron is now their mercenary, and Jayne’s lover. And because this is the future and vast discoveries have been made in the world of medicine, Jayne is pregnant with their first child. Inara and Mal finally profess their undying love for each other while Inara is, well, dying in his arms (something gruesome, lotsa blood), and Mal finally realizes that life is short. And promptly confesses his (other) undying love to Zoe. And she promptly punches him in the face.
Come on, somebody pick up that show for a second season already! We can come up with the budget! I’ve got 20 bucks in my pocket right now!
She answered other fan inquiries as well, but this one had us the most intrigued. We definitely agree that Firefly deserves a second (err technically third) chance. How would you have wanted Firefly to end? Certainly not with the death of… well, we won’t spoil that for those of you who have yet to catch on to this show.
