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

The best underrated episode in Season 5 of The X-Files for me!
27 February 2016 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Redux (The X-Files) the first episode in Season 5 is the best one for me, but It is an underrated episode of the premiere with two part of the mythology. I seriously love this episode which is a big start of Season 5. I am huge fan of The X-Files and after 14 years they finally re open the case and they are filming the 10th season of this awesome TV Show. I have all six seasons of The X-Files on DVD I really don't need them on Blu-ray, but anyway I decide to re watch Season 5 because I only saw it once. Season 1 - 4 are always my favorite Seasons that I have re watched it over again, but the last six seasons I wasn't happy about it, they were not my couple of tea. Re watching this Season again Redux part I and part II, I must say I am stunning from the acting performance and how both of the parts are good conspiracy episodes. So I love them both equal. I know a lot of people will disagree with me and put my review down, but I don't care. Great start of the episode.

Plot: Mulder accesses a facility that may hold a cure for Scully's illness. Scully performs an experiment in hopes of determining the origin of the disease.

So this was the last season that was filmed in Vancouver, Canada and I seriously love Season 5. The first episode of the two is brilliant. Scully's genetically altered DNA brings her closer to the brink of death, government agent Michael Kritschgau helps Mulder in the search for a cure, partly to atone for his own involvement with perpetrating the alien hoax. I love that Mulder kills Scott Ostelhof in self defense and fakes his own death to find out who was behind this hoax, who set them up both. Mulder enters the Department of Defense by his card of a death government agent who was were listening to his his conversations, his apartment was under electronic surveillance for two months. He enters facility that may hold a cure for Scully's illness in the Department of Defense of Level Four who enters in a room with full fake alien bodies while he is searching for the cure of Scully's illness. I love the narration from David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. I love William B. Davis returning as Cigarette Smoking Man. I love the Lone Gunman on the end of the episode. I seriously love Charles Cioffi returning with his character Section Chief Scott Blevins from the pilot episode. I Love that is everything explained what happened in the end of Season 4 and what happened really for the past 4 years that Mulder and Scully worked together.

Redux I plays as a collection of voice-over monologues transposed over sequences of Mulder wandering through corridors in the Pentagon. One immediately wonders how the Department of Defence could have staged such a complex and convincing hoax against the American people when they cannot find one lost FBI agent inside the Pentagon. The drab setting makes for a shockingly dull episode; the majesty of the Yukon Mountains is lost, replaced by long sequences of grey walls and red doors. Redux I has more than a few interesting ideas, but its structure is a mess. Sitting between Gethsemane and Redux II, the episode has no clear sense of purpose or momentum; no drive or ambition or excitement.

Overall: I love this episode and I love the cast in here. I am the only one of the reviewers here who gave this Episode 10 and I have watch Redux and Redux II second time in the row. I love both of the episodes they are awesome and they are mine favorite Episodes from Season 5 which is my personal favorite! With the most exiting stories, this show is great for any Sci-fi lovers out there and drama lovers this show can make you laugh cry and scare you to death you are going to be joining a wild ride!
