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

Lacking an er.... spark
18 August 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

Another weak early Chris Carter standalone episode, "Fire" doesn't hold up even if you get past the silly accents and cut straight to the plot. It's just not very good, I'm afraid. The episode holds minor interest for fans as it is the only appearance of an ex-girlfriend of Mulder's, and it's interesting to see Scully's reaction at such an early stage in their relationship, showing that there was some romantic tension from the start.

"Fire" could have been half-decent, but it's just a middling disappointment ultimately. Being a Chris Carter episode you can expect some good character moments and dialogue but other than that it's really just nonsense.

4/10
