Storyline

Samantha tells her brother about the shape-shifting Alien Bounty Hunter and why he is out to kill all of them. With Scully taken prisoner by the Alien Bounty Hunter, Mulder arranges to swap his sister for her. Snipers are in the woods to take out the alien creature but it does not go well. The swap takes place on a bridge and while Scully is safe, Samantha and the bounty hunter fall into the waters below. Mulder's father gives him an envelope Samantha had left for him and as a result he goes to a women's health clinic in Maryland. There he gets a greater understanding of what is really going on. When Mulder disappears, it's Assistant Director Skinner who goes the extra mile to find out where he's gone. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Steven Williams (Mr. X) and Mitch Pileggi (A.D. Skinner) improvised their famous elevator fight scene on the spot. During the filming of the sequence Williams actually broke a knuckle on his right hand when he accidentally punched Pileggi. When Rob Bowman was dissatisfied with the first take of Skinner slamming X against the wall, Pileggi did it again with such force that the (fake) wall broke. See more »

Goofs

At the start we are shown USS Allegiance at a 'cruising' depth of 1000ft. Modern military submarines have maximum dive depths of 820ft to 1300ft. This submarine would not just cruise around near the limit of it's dive capability because of the safety implications and that the stress weakens the hull over time. See more »

Quotes

Scully: Thanks for ditching me.
Mulder: I'm sorry, I, uh... I couldn't let you risk your life on this.
Scully: Did you find what you were looking for?
Mulder: No... no. But I found something I thought I'd lost.
[Scully gives him a questioning look]
Mulder: Faith to keep looking.

End Game is a chess term used to describe the later stages of a chess game when there are few pieces left on the board. The pawns become more important in the game. In reference to the x-files episode of the same name, who are the pawns? Are they the clones of Samantha who sacrifice themselves so that the original can survive? Or is it Mulder being used as a pawn by the alien bounty hunter (ABH) to expose the clones so that he can kill them? These are thought-provoking questions that can enhance your enjoyment of this episode. What I like about the ABH is that no only can he morph into whomever he wants, but he can also don the personality of the person whom he is impersonating. That makes him especially dangerous. This episode is just as exciting as Colony. It doesn't skip a beat. The elevator fight scene between X and Skinner is classic. It's great to see Skinner sticking up for Mulder and Scully. And, in the grand tradition of the x-files, it leaves lots of questions unanswered, making us ask for more.
