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

Quotes

[the Cigarette Smoking Man opens the door to Mulder's apartment with a lock pick. He shuts the door behind him and looks around the apartment. He sees the chalk outline of the dead man. He sees a framed picture of Fox and Samantha as kids and cries softly, realizing how he ruined their lives. He puts the picture down. He looks at the blood on the floor and looks at the ceiling peep hole nervously]

Yes A Boring Episode Indeed
19 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another reviewer had posted that this episode was boring. The same reviewer, like me, is also watching the X Files on DVD from beginning to end in sequential order. I suspect that this is one of those episodes that held up well when it first came out but hasn't stood the test of time for those like me who are revisiting each episode. Like so many of the arc/mythology episodes the success of this episode seems to rely more on the excitement around the theme rather than anything that actually happens. You know it is bad when you watch Gethsemane and Redux I in a row and see the same scene repeated 4 times (Scully's testimony). Scully testifying again..... Mulder getting out of a pinch somehow yet again.... Implausible occurrences.... plot holes... and too many damn voice overs all with that slow, depressing and monotonous drivel. I am convinced that this episode was great when it first came out on TV and you had to wait a whole week to find out what really happened. Without the element of cliff hanger there isn't much going on here. A lot of it feels like filler.
