Fillion recently reteamed with Glau in an episode of fellow Firefly alum Alan Tudyk’s meta-cheeky web series Con Man (see photo, right).

The actress is hardly the first Firefly vet to visit Fillion’s current stomping ground. Adam Baldwin and Gina Torres have also popped up on the show, with the former appearing for the second time this past fall.
