Goofs

Doggett is in possession of sealed juvenile records (for which Scully admonishes him). Cops can't simply "get" records that are sealed. They have to go before a judge who will authorize their release before the clerk will release them. See more »

Quotes

Dana Scully: [on explaining how a young boy could reappear after 10 years without aging even a day] There are X-files cases, that describe similar paranormal findings. Alien abductees, who came back with anomalous medical stats.
John Doggett: You know, these words, "anomalous", "supernatural", "paranormal", they proport to explain something by not explaining it. It's lazy!

Creepy ep, but odd friction
4 December 2011 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

The episode itself was creepy and suspenseful. I really had no sure idea where we were going, from the start; and the denouement was not completely expected — which is good. I can enjoy a good formulaic tale, but I prefer some creativity and mixing-it-up.

What was jarring, however, was how much Scully got on Doggett's case.

Now, in any Scully vs. Anyone match-up, I'm likely to side with Scully, at least to some degree. But in this, it was just unexpected and odd. I find myself warming to Doggett (I originally stopped watching X-Files just before Mulder left the show), and thought the intensity with which she went off on him was unwarranted and jarring.

Worse, it forgets continuity. Just the week before, she'd unwisely gone off alone, unwisely gotten herself spine-deep in serious trouble, and Doggett had saved her life. You could even be forgiven the pun: he had her back.

She even apologized.

Yet here, all that is forgotten, and she's all over him for (as far as I can tell) simply trying to be a good cop.

So I'll give the ep an 8 on its own rights, but I'd give a 4 to growing Scully's relationship with this new character comprehensibly.
