Mass of a Mass Murderer
26 October 2006 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

Dana Scully, FBI agent, physician, cancer survivor, and practicing Catholic, is drawn to the case of a Christian Science child who has had a miraculous remission from cancer. Upon investigation she discovers two things: an 'alien' implant in the back of the boy's neck and C.G.B. Spender, super assassin for the government's secret inner circle. When Spender, "the cigarette-smoking man" tells Scully that he means to share the secret cure for cancer with her she suspects him of blowing smoke, but accompanies him to a mysterious assignation at a lakeside hotel. Meanwhile her FBI partner, Fox Mulder, has discovered that someone has hacked into Scully's computer and impersonated Scully in an exchange of emails with someone at the Department of Defense's research facility. While Spender tries to convince Scully of his benign intentions, Mulder fears that she is merely a disposable bit of bait in a plan to draw a federal fugitive into the secret assassin's deadly sights.

This is another season 7 old-plot-device-elimination episode, and as this often meant the elimination of characters we have good reason to fear for Scully's survival! Unfortunately the ending of the episode really doesn't make much sense.

William B. Davis, who plays "the cigarette-smoking man," once suggested in an interview that his character was the real star of the show! Ironically this and certain other episodes show that in a way, Chris Carter has become the cigarette-smoking man, terminating stray characters and plot lines - with extreme prejudice!
