Chris Carter has to be the biggest charlatan in the whole history of television producing. He sickens me, and I can't believe people put up with his and his staff's lazy writing for nine years. This episode is the epitome of why I despise this so-called man.
Carter milked the Scully-scientist-serious-give me proof cop against Mulder wacko-open minded-mystical cop for years until Duchovny had enough and bailed. At this point, Carter must've been ready to poop his pants because he could no longer MILK the tried and true formula that had served him so well. So, what does he do? Well, he makes Doggett the new Scully and Scully becomes Mulder (or at least tries to). This episode wastes valuable time on this, and it really destroys the whole episode. Instead of having to hear how Doggett doesn't believe what Scully is laying down, why couldn't that time have been used to answer why Mr. Oompa Loompa is in Washington DC killing the people he has chosen to kill? The reason is Chris Carter is a lazy jerk-off. He hides behind the theme that there are things out there that are unexplainable, so why waste energy trying to explain them. He sits there and laughs at his loving fans that will happily eat any excrement that Carter feeds them. During the first season he probably said to himself, "Oh my God, I can write anything I want and not explain it, not tie up ANY loose ends, and they'll buy it. Bwaaahahahaha - what a bunch of idiots!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Trust me, I don't expect everything to be sewn up nicely like on Start Trek:TNG, but how about a little once in a while! Throw me a friggin' bone, people! This episode could've been awesome if a little time and care was put into explaining why the Indian mystic was killing these specific people and less on Scully being Mulder and Doggett being Scully.
