Trivia

The character Leyla Harrison, who appeared in episodes The X-Files: Alone (2001) and The X-Files: Scary Monsters (2002) was named after a writer of The X-Files (1993) internet fanfiction who died of cancer in February 2001. The fictional Leyla Harrison was a fan of Mulder's and Scully's, having spent her time in the FBI poring over their expense reports (in much the same way that internet fans of the show examined the minute nuances of every episode), so the tribute was very appropriate.

Goofs

When the camera pans down to Agent Harrison's shaking hand holding the gun, her finger is on the trigger. Anyone with law enforcement training on handling a sidearm would know that unless you are taking a shot, you always hold your finger alongside the barrel by the trigger to avoid accidental discharges. Even if her inexperience and nervousness caused Agent Harrison to forget this, Agent Dogget, an experienced and more than competent agent who was observant enough to see that she still had the safety on, should have alerted her to the misstep.

Nice and Bittersweet Episode
10 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode pays great homage to previous episodes and to Mulder and Scully. It actually makes me kind of sad. It's like watching an old friend that is nearing his last breath and he knows it. The monster was pretty good for a minor character. I enjoyed the sudden leaps and it looked great scrambling around the grounds and up the side of the house. It was a fun monster of the week even when I predicted the outcome. Like other X File episodes I see some holes but they are holes nobody really cares about. For example, we don't know a lot about the victims and their relation to the monster. The X Files has been faithful in their throw away plot points. Agent Harris was rather annoying wasn't she? Remember the Chris Farely show from Saturday Night Live? That is who she began sounding like (e.g. "Um remember that time that Mulder and Scully were battling the man eating mutant under the escalator....? How about that time they.....). It is also nice to see Mulder and Doggett finally put their testosterone aside and work as a team especially since Kersh and Krycek are the only two people left to hate. Speaking of which....when is that annoying pretty boy Krycek going to die anyway? I guess the myth arc leaves me with something to hope for. But I digress...
