So-so "mythology" thriller
19 October 2006 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

Walter Skinner, Mulder and Scully's FBI supervisor, sickens with a mysterious illness. When Mulder connects it to Skinner's review of Senate Resolution 819, he seeks out former ally Senator Richard Matheson. Meanwhile Scully discovers that the apparent virus is actually nanotechnology.

This is an open-ended story in which our heroes run around without solving anything - including Skinner's problem! Without a real resolution it has to be judged on how it contributes to the larger story arc. Despite popping up again in season 7, what happens here simply isn't important. Skipping it won't lose you anything in understanding the "mythology" which is just about to be wrapped up anyway!
