Did You Know?


Chris Carter wrote this episode to serve as a series finale, as the Fox Network had yet to renew the show, and David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson were not signed for additional seasons. In the eleventh hour, Fox renewed the show, with only Anderson returning to the series full time. Carter then created a new series mythology based around Scully working with new characters to stop government super soldiers. See more »

Scully: Mulder, if any of this is true...
Mulder: If it is, or if it isn't, I want you to forget about it, Scully.
Scully: Forget about it?
Mulder: You're not going back out there. I'm not going to let you go back out there.
Scully: What are you talking about?
Mulder: It has to end some time. That time is now.
Scully: Mulder...
Mulder: Scully, you have to understand that they're taking abductees. You're an abductee. I'm not going to risk... losing you.
Scully: I won't let you go alone.

This should have ended the series.

Requiem is a good ending to season 7 with a few things I would have preferred a little different. I like the idea of returning to the case of Billy Miles and reminiscing a little on the Pilot episode. As I watch the episode I can't help but think about all the things that Mulder and Scully have learned in the past seven years about the alien race. It especially hit when they began talking about having seen the toxic blood before as if it were old news and Scully explains it to Billy. I put myself in Billy's shoes and wonder if they knew that last time I saw them or if they've learned about it since then. I also was very glad to see Marita Covarubias and Alex Krycek again. I love that scene when Mulder, Skinner and these two are in Mulder's office and he tries to attack Krycek and then they are standing around talking when Scully walks in. Her face says "what the hey is going on here Mulder?" Anyway probably the one thing that I don't really like is how they put the whole thing in one episode. I wish they could have done it as a two parter. But oh well. Chris Carter mentions in the special features that he didn't even write the end of the episode until they were almost done filming to avoid letting out any spoilers. I respect him for that. I give this episode a 8/10.
