Storyline

Mulder is approached by a former love interest, Scotland Yard Inspector Phoebe Green, who needs help on a case. To date, three British politicians have spontaneously combusted, burning to a crisp. There has been no trace of accelerant being used and little to connect the three deaths. Green is in the U.S. providing security to Sir Michael Marsden and his family and wants to make sure nothing happens to him while he is visiting. Mulder tells Scully that he wants to take care of this himself - somewhat to her annoyance - but she eventually finds crucial evidence that leads the to the killer. Written by garykmcd

Mulder's Old Flame
13 April 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

Fire is an episode worth watching just to see Phoebe Green of Scotland Yard, Mulder's love from a time long past. It's interesting to see the uncomfortableness that Scully shows around Mulder and Phoebe. It makes you wonder whether Scully was already developing jealousy over Mulder this early in their relationship. But Scully gets the better of Mulder at the end with help of a British accent. It's hard to see what Mulder saw in Phoebe Green when you see what a floozy she is. Fire is one of a few episodes that doesn't begin in the continental United States. The villain Cecil L'Ively is played well by Mark Sheppard. I think he pulls of an American accent well as Bob the caretaker. As in some other episodes, I think the "villain storyline" is secondary to the triangle of Mulder, Scully & Phoebe. The one thing that bugs in this episode is Mulder's fear of fire. It's a plot device that is very contrived just for this episode. It is never mentioned again throughout the course of the series. But that aside, (here comes the cheesy promotion), get hot for Fire!
