Storyline

Mulder sets out with agent Alex Krycek to find Scully, who has been kidnapped by Duane Barry. He's getting very little support from his superiors, including Assistant Director Skinner who wants him out of the case. Mulder believes Barry has kidnapped Scully to offer her to his alien abductees in the hope they will leave him alone. Mulder thinks he knows exactly where he is going but it soon becomes obvious that there are some who will go to great lengths to stop him. Skinner for his part makes a fateful decision.

Red Right Hand
2 June 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This is the followup to Duane Barry that left off at Scully being abducted.

I remarked in my comment for the first part, that what we see of Duane Barry's frightening experience of abduction may be imagined by Mulder as a viewer, in fact it makes the most sense that it is.

The continuation of that here is that Mulder, at the crime scene of Scully's home, has 'flashes' of what actually happened, we process these (and were likely filmed) as 'real' truth but there's no reason for it to be so. More to the point. Our glimpse of Scully in the 'ship' having some horrible experiment conducted on her is Mulder's vision, with his face reflected on broken glass.

Worthwhile as a thriller, this aspect shifts here from the hostage crisis to a frantic chase, dangerous acrobatics on a skylift, and all sorts of paranoia as secret government distorts the picture, with the helicopter, possible poisoning of the suspect and withholding forensic analysis. It ends, triumphantly in all the gloom, with the X-files being opened again.
