** The series itself takes on a very interesting new light if you go through it with the mindset that Simon was fully aware that River was a psychic but that he was trying to hide it from the others. Every time he talks about River and her "awareness" he seems confused and hesitant and uncertain--not because he doesn't know what happened to her, but that he ''is'' aware of what happened and that he's trying to keep a lid on it and not sure ''how'' to do so.
** This is most obvious in "[[FireflyE05Safe Safe]]", where it's clear he's not surprised River knows things about the mute girl she can't, but rather he's trying to find an explanation other than "my sister is psychic."

** The point of her praying. It lets her hide what she's really doing, which is bracing herself for when the flashbang goes off.

* The significance of the final scene between [[spoiler:Mal]] and River at the end of the movie can take a while to sink in. Specifically, as [[spoiler:Mal]] is telling River about love, she is curling up in the copilot's chair, wrapping her arms around her knees, in a FetalPositionRebirth - ''exactly'' like she had been shown in the very first scene she appeared in in the pilot, except in this case, she's awake, clothed, sitting up, and calmly smiling, while in the pilot she'd been u exactly unconscious, naked, lying down, and awoke screaming. The contrast and the symbolism - that River's struggles in the series and movie have led her to take a hand in her own destiny instead of being a helpless, gibbering wreck, was beautiful and so very subtle

* Why did learning what happened on Miranda drive River crazy? River didn't just learn of what happend, she ''felt'' what happen to every person and it shows how strong River really is that it didn't kill her. Remember that in the series, Simon's exam establishes that River has no emotional filters. Essentially, her problem is the exact opposite of a sociopath's: she has ''too much'' empathy. If she were to unwittingly pluck the Miranda secret from a high ranking official's mind -- not just hear about it on the news, but be exposed to it, unwillingly, in its totality -- it's not hard to imagine that it could overwhelm her mentally and emotionally, especially when you consider the torturous situation she lived in at the time.

** Not only does the Alliance avert the typical [=SciFi=] {{Card Carrying Villain}}y, but they're actually a much greater threat because of it. Anyone with half a brain can see that people like [[StarWars Emperor Palpatine or Grand Moff Tarkin]] are incredible assholes and should be resisted. And even if they do manage to cow the populace into staying in line, the populace will be exactly that, cowed into staying in line and not deviating from their predefined role when really, in order for a society to prosper, people need to be free to change and evolve. But with a set up like The Alliance, people won't really realize what's going on until after they are affected by it; who cares if some little girl gets her brain cut up as long as its for "The Greater Good" (provided, of course, that it's not their sister getting her brain cut up -- but by the time that happens, it'll be too late).
** For the whole series, the incentive is to say "Yes, the Alliance was mean to River, and their officers are a little humorless, but their goal is for everyone to live in a shiny democratic utopia free from want, and the Mal's goal is effectively for everyone to live on mudballs ruled by petty dictators and thugs." Then the Big Damn Movie happens, and Miranda strikes everyone as completely in character for the Alliance, and puts things in perspective. In the end, it's not so much about Good vs Evil as it Law vs Chaos.

** First viewing: Wait - Simon knew all along that River was designed to be a mind-reading assassin? But he played dumb during the series, even when the crew's life might depend on it. What an outrageous retcon! Also, it's completely out of character for Mal to abandon Simon and River. Second viewing: Oh, so ''that's'' what was eating Mal about the Tams....

* After River's programming was triggered, and then Mal and Zoe are trying to decide what to do with her, knowing she's dangerous? Well, right after that, River has a conversation with Simon (sort of) where she says "They're afraid of me. Well, I'll show them. Oh, God." She is ''not'' referring to the crew of ''Serenity'' alone - she's also referring to [[spoiler: the Alliance, who are becoming desperate to capture of eliminate her before she reveals their secrets]]. Talk about powerful dialogue with multiple meanings.

** The entire war between the Alliance and the Browncoats wasn't about simply becoming a 'monopoly' in the 'Verse. (After all, with better medicines alone, the Alliance could have launched a 'hearts and minds' offensive with their better technology). What, then? Miranda had become a launching point for an entire fleet of Reavers. From at least one instance, there's reason to suspect that it might "catch" (ie, the Stockholm Syndrome making that one guy 'join'). If they left the Independent worlds be, they'd stay free but also disorganized--and either die piecemeal or actually provide 'reinforcements' for their push on to the Core Worlds. Someone in command simply found a pretext to take action. Probably not out of loving concern for the outer worlds, but out of a sense of self-preservation.
** This is even more plausible when you consider their motive to suppress the information. If the outer worlds are free, then it seems likely that sooner or later someone is going to try to find out the source of the reavers, and hunt down why they just popped up out of the blue, possibly starting with the planet that mysteriously died off just before they showed up. If they're in control of the outer planets, even nominal control, they can prevent that from happening. AND, the war likely served as a major distraction from any public attention to, or investigation of, Miranda. In peacetime, a terraforming failure might be notable enough to attract attention; with a war on, it would almost certainly be ignored.
* You would think that after all The Operative has done to Mal and his crew, he would have earned himself the mother of all gruesome deaths, like being fed feet-first to the Reavers or something. Mal sparing The Operative's life seems like another of Whedon's many subverted tropes, namely in this case how the good guy always has to kill the bad guy. Okay, Mal showed him the truth about the Alliance, but was that really worse than killing him, really? A complete loss of faith really was the ''worst'' thing Mal could think to inflict on someone. Because he would know, ''he suffered the exact same thing at Serenity Valley''. There's a deleted scene that makes this more explicit, where the Operative asks Mal how he was able to keep going after Serenity.
* When the Operative asks Mal what his sin is, Mal replies "Hell, I'm a fan of all seven. But right now, I'm gonna have to go with ''wrath''." This seems like a snarky PreAssKickingOneLiner--which is probably what Mal intended it to be--but if you think about it, wrath really is Mal's sin. Most of his actions in the movie were motivated by anger, first at Book's death and then at the knowledge that the Alliance had wiped out an entire planet and created the Reavers attempting to make people "better". Even in the series, while Mal has mostly resigned himself to the Browncoat's defeat, he still hates the Alliance (and depending on your [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation interpretation]] of his faith, God) for the war. Had Mal not cut him off, "wrath" is what the Operative would have told him.

** As for why she would just happen to have a disguised flashbang? As [[AwesomeMcCoolName Atherton Wing]] taught us, not all men who can hire a Companion are strictly civilized, so Companions must have discrete tools that they can use to protect themselves. Which ties in with Inara's earlier complaints (possibly from a deleted scene) about how the [[NaiveNewcomer girls in the training house]] are not ready for the dangers of the 'verse that their line of work can bring them, thinking that being a Companion is all wealthy men and romance. Even odds if this makes her TheLastDJ as she seems to worry about, or merely a VeteranInstructor that the Guild is hoping will help prepare their students.
* The reavers are a dark parallel to the "Indian Savage" trope. A foreign horde, impossible to reason with, that descends on civilization without warning, does horrific things, and leaves without a word.
* In a deleted scene at the end of the movie, the Operative makes the parallels between him and Mal obvious by asking Mal how he was able to keep living after the battle of Serenity Valley. Mal's response is "If you're still standing there when that engine starts, you never will figure it out." This sounds like a simple threat, but it's actually the answer to his question - the only way to go on is to "keep flying," not to let yourself get stuck.

After the Operative kills Book's colony, Mal goes to war and Inara is shocked (along with everyone else) when he starts ordering the bodies strapped to the ship.

* When Inara waves Mal and he brings up the trunk she forgot, they both quickly say, "I didn't mean to leave any stuff" and "I didn't look through the stuff," ''they're both lying''. Mal did look through Inara's things, because it was all there was left of her, and Inara ''intentionally'' left the suitcase there just in case she ever needed an excuse to call Mal. This is also the reason why it was so conspicuous that they didn't fight. Ordinarily, Mal would have instantly begun snarking about the leftover luggage if he didn't suspect something was wrong, and Inara would've gotten angry that he looked if she wasn't warning him about the trap The Operative was setting for him. In this case, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness what's not being said]] is the real code they're using.
* Even with powerful and zealously loyal agents such as the Operatives, it seems odd that the Alliance would want to create supersoldiers out of River and the likes. What's the point? But for all their zeal, Operatives aren't indoctrinated. They clearly choose to serve the Alliance, knowing full well the morality of their actions and sticking with it anyways. It takes an exceptional strength of character and circumstance to forge a person like that. That's not what the Alliance wants. They want streamlining, predictability and absolute obedience (instead of loyalty by choice). When the Operative said that there is no place for him in Alliance's ideal world, he is right. In such a world, he will have [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outlived his usefulness]] and been replaced by what River was meant to be.
