Though the end came too soon for fans of Joss Whedon's serialized, sci-fi story, the good news is that there is, indeed, an end; these 13 episodes (which, as a whole, are a much stronger collection than the first season) wrap up nearly every loose end, including those introduced in the must-see epilogue included on the Season 1 DVD release.
