Storyline

Everyone, including Mulder and Scully's mother, had pretty well given Scully up for dead when she suddenly reappears at a Washington hospital. Details are scanty - the hospital can't really say how she got there - but she is comatose and on a ventilator. With the help of the Lone Gunmen, Mulder learns that her DNA has been altered and that her immune system has shut down. The mysterious Mr. X fails to make contact with him and Mulder hen goes after the Cigarette Smoking Man, ready to do whatever is necessary to save his friend and partner. Written by garykmcd

6 May 2010 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The return of Scully should have been more dramatic than it was portrayed. The entire episode revolved around sentiments of mulder towards Scully and less about finding out the truth. The story also portrayed Mulder as a weak person in the sense that he tendered his resignation and did not pushed hard enough to find out the truth. The scene when he was in the room with the cancer man could have been more intense and when he was presented with the chance of taking revenge he bailed just because of some sentimental carp Scully's sister fed him with. I am sorry but i was expecting more form Mulder than this. After all the X files are all about finding the truth than building emotions.
