Quotes

Scully: My role in the X-files have always been to provide a rational, scientific perspective to cases that would seem to defy explanation, a counterpoint to Agent Mulder.
Walter Skinner: And you have done that. You have performed admirably.
Scully: Have I? How many X-files have my scientific approach fully and satisfactorily explained?
Walter Skinner: Your reports have consistently made sense of his conclusions.

Among the Best Stand Alone Episodes
10 July 2008 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

Two skeletons have been unearthed, seemingly of two missing hikers. But as Mulder and Scully try to comprehend what force is behind their deaths...something far more sinister is at work already. And the force that claimed the hikers may already affecting the agents themselves...

The episode, cleverly titled, is among this reviewer's favorites. After the first viewing, one has the tendency to feel cheated. But after repeat viewings, it gets better and better as one realizes that the episode is doing it's honest best to make sure that the viewer never knows quite what is going on.

A pure mind trip of the highest order, this episode delivers the goods. A nicely layered psychological puzzle that will remind the viewer what the unexplained is truly about...and why X-Files is at the top of the class.
