The crazy canine Firefly episode Alan Tudyk pitched to the writers

We've certainly wondered what other plot lines the Firefly writers had in store for the crew of Serenity, but we had no idea how many plots were spilling out of actor Alan Tudyk's brain. Nathan Fillion shared one of stories Tudyk pitched for Firefly, and it involves two words: dog pheromones.

Entertainment Weekly was speaking to several of the Firefly cast members at New York Comic Con when Nathan Fillion shared this gem:

"Alan Tudyk definitely pitched the most episodes," Fillion said. "He had a great one where there were some criminals who engage in illegal dogfights, and there was a planet where one side of the planet was perpetual night. They had these big, feral dogs there that were so mean and awful, and we had to go out and trap them. We had this dog pheremone of some kind, and Jayne was messing around, and splat!, the thing bursts and we're all covered in this pheremone. So we have to run back to the ship with these feral dogs chasing us, and we get the dogs back to the hold of the ship, and we're safe. But in the journey back to get them back to the criminals, River comes in, communes with the dogs, and domesticates them. So now they're the same dogs, just nice."


I'm picturing a scene of dogs cuddling in the dog fighting pit in something reminiscent of Ferdinand the Bull. I wonder what other continuing Firefly adventures are swirling around Tudyk's head. Maybe we'll find out during tomorrow night's Firefly reuinion.
