A disappointing sequel
27 September 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

As this episode was said to be the best loner of season 7, I have been quite disappointed. First, it was far too obvious that Pfaster would try to catch Scully again, and that Scully would escape and not be killed or wounded. No suspense. What is more annoying is all the religious good-against-evil stuff, that had nothing to do in such an episode and is particularly clumsy and badly dealt here: faith is constantly depreciated, as Father Orison's leads him to do evil and Scully's seems to be a source of doubt and suffering for her. What the song and all the supposed signs mean is not clear, and to make it even less clear the ending seems to contradict everything that was said before: so those signs were sent by the Devil? Or not? It is particularly incomprehensible... All this makes a rather boring and irritating than thrilling episode.
