Storyline

In a flashback to 24 hours earlier, Scully returns to her apartment to find Mulder waiting for her return to tell her that there is a dead man in his apartment. He now accepts that he has been duped all of these years into believing the UFO conspiracy and is convinced that Scully may have been given her cancer as part of that plot. He also believes the conspiracy reaches into the depths of the military and the FBI. Mulder uses the dead man's ID to infiltrate the defense research agency where Kritschgau is employed and learns why the military started the UFO hoax. The Cigarette Smoking Man finds something interesting in Mulder's apartment. Scully learns that the ice core samples have interesting microscopic life forms. Written by garykmcd

What a terrible episode...
18 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm currently watching the X-files on DVD from beginning to end and I must say this is the most excruciatingly boring episode so far.

The endless voice overs left nothing to the imagination and towards the end were insulting to the viewer's intelligence.

The story was filled with suspense and revelations, the closest the viewer has got to the 'truth' so far, it should have been exciting... much more exciting than it was... instead, we have endless wandering though corridors, over explanation and those wretched voice overs which remind me of the Harrison Ford voice-over from Blade Runner.

The way CSM seemed sad to see the evidence of Mulder's demise was the episode highlight for me, giving a tentative glimpse of more to their relationship than I first suspected.

Other than that, the episode should be the dictionary definition of anticlimactic... if that was the intent, then 10 out of 10. I suppose Redux 2 will probably redeem it, but why should one episode have to be so bad in order to make the next redemptive?
