I Don't Accept That.
4 September 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

Memento Mori is an episode that will certainly tug at your heartstrings. Right off, we see a touching teaser that features a voice-over by Gillian Anderson. There are lots of voice-overs by Gillian Anderson in this episode, and they help to express the emotion that is present. What gets me right away is Mulder's concern for Scully, and his refusal to accept what has happened to her. He'll go to any length to find out what's really wrong with her. And Skinner is right there with Mulder. He refuses to allow Mulder to deal with the Cigarette Smoking Man. He then essentially "sells his soul to the Devil" in order to get a cure for Scully. This will pay out in a later episode. Another thing that makes this episode great is that the Lone Gunmen are in it and they get to do some action on the outside, helping Mulder break into a building. This episode features an interesting deleted scene with Scully's brother Bill, where he berates her for the choices she's made. The make-up for Scully after she's received some chemotherapy is very good. She looks so beaten. The strong emotion is what carries this episode, and makes it one of the finest of season four.
