As it turns out, Jayne did a job in Canton stealing a large sum of money from the magistrate, but was hit by anti-air emplacements and forced to jettison the cash. It landed on the "mudders" (local peasants who harvested the mud and made up most of the population), and since that day he had been a folk legend, "the Hero of Canton." Though Jayne tries to lie low, he is soon recognized, celebrated, and plied with alcohol.

* DarkReprise: A sombre version of "The Man They Call Jayne" is plucked out on one guitar as he tries to make sense of what happened in the closing scene.



* HollywoodDateless: The handsome 26-year-old virgin that can't get any women.
** FridgeBrilliance: The only women around are probably mudders under his father's employ. None of them would risk getting involved with the magistrate's son, given that his usual method of dealing with people he doesn't like falls under the category of "hacking their hands and feet off with a machete and rolling them into the bog."

* UnresolvedSexualTension: Inara hears from her client about "The Hero of Canton" being in town. She immediately blabbers about how Mal can be, only to be told it's ''Jayne''. Just watching her brain reboot from that is priceless.
