Merry Christmas
10 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode had excellent cinematography and really creepy ghost special effects. I love how it begins with Mulder narrating to Scully the ghost story. I like it how Scully finally comes to admit the house their in is really haunted. This episode revolves around Mulder and Scully's love for each other and how the ghosts are aware of that love. It is kind of like a metaphor. The last 5 minutes where really suspenseful and had me biting my nails even though this is more of a comedy episode. The ending is really cute with Scully and Mulder exchanging gifts on Christmas eve. A rather touching and extremely weird episode.
