Zoe Washburn, Firefly

Part of what made Zoe and Wash so fun as a couple was their dynamic: she appreciated and loved his witty banter, and he appreciated and loved the fact that his warrior of a wife could kick his butt at any time! Whether taking someone out with defibrillating heart panels while saying: “Clear,” or showcasing her war-honed weaponry skills in, like, every episode, Zoe was always a breath of fresh, butt-kicking air. You should also check out portrayer Gina Torres’ classic fight scenes with Jennifer Garner in Alias!
