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]

After a while I only could hear blahblahblah
10 January 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A suspenseful, wonderful looking, brilliantly acted and absolutely well done episode that unfortunately has cringe-worthy, frustrating and repetitive dialog.

I'm a big fan of voice-overs, and I think that they were very well done in this episode. But after a while I only could hear blahblahblah, they kept talking about how they were led to believe in a lie, which feels insulting to go there to begin with. I mean, this show has gone on for five years, is there ANYONE who actually believed that it was all a hoax? It was nothing but frustrating and time wasting.

The worst part is that once again, SKINNER was made to be a suspect. How many times has he proved to be one of the good guys? It's just really insulting and the repeated scenes did not make it any better.

I'm giving this episode THREE stars because it was a quality episode in everything BUT the dialog.
