When Mulder and Scully arrive at the hospital the crawl at the bottom of the screen reads "Hartwell Psychiatric Hospital", but on their second trip to the hospital you get a close look at their visitor badges that read "Hartford Psychiatric Hospital". See more »


Scully: Mulder, these people, even when they were alive, mangled biblical prophecy to the extent that it's unrecognisable. The year 2000 is just their artificial deadline, and besides 2001 is actually the start of the new millennium.
Mulder: Nobody likes a math geek, Scully.

Coda For a Conspiracy
24 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

When a retired FBI agent dies an apparent suicide one of his colleagues knows the truth - as does retired FBI agent Frank Black, former member of the mysterious Millennium Group. When the dead man's coffin is found empty, Mulder spots clues to a necromantic ritual and demands Black's aid. Black's refusal to act may doom Mulder's investigation, as the resurrection of the dead seems to be running a few steps ahead of the end times!

"Millenium" was another Chris Carter series that lasted from 1996 to 1999. Frank Black (Lance Henriksen) was a retired FBI profiler who joined a group of ex-law-enforcement consultants secretly preparing for the apocalypse. While some members hoped to guide humanity through an end times starting in 2000, an inner group of religious fanatics plotted to clear the earth of all but the chosen few.

This is a decent episode with an OK plot without anything in the way of twists. My usual post-season-4 complaint is that too much of the story is straightforward witchcraft with no possible logical explanation.

This is a stand-alone X-Files episode, which is good since "Millenium"'s conspiracy didn't exactly jive with that of the X-Files! However this doesn't EXACTLY work as a wrap for "Millenium," which left off with Frank on the run and a demon having evidently penetrated the Group's inner circle. This episode is in a way a betrayal of the whole mythology of "Millenium" as the ending suggests that the whole threat of millennial apocalypse was occult-inspired self delusion.
