So, um…maybe it’s a good thing they didn’t make more Firefly.
The 5 Worst Things Almost Done to Beloved Characters
#5. Inara Serra (Firefly): Gruesome Gang Rape
One of the main villains in Firefly is a “race” of insane, bloodthirsty humans called Reavers whose hobbies include sexual assault, feasting on human flesh, and making scarves out of their victims’ intestines, though not always in that order. And, according to the show’s executive producer, Whedon once considered doing an episode where this outer-space version of the Sawyer family kidnaps Inara and violently lives up to the first third of their reputation.
But before being taken by the Reavers, the ever-ready space escort injects herself with a drug that will kill anyone who comes into sexual contact with her, allowing the character to ultimately survive her horrific experience, at least physically. Or, to put it in a more accurate/horrible way: Inara was supposed to kill a ship full of crazed-out rapists with her vagina.
