Goofs

When Skinner follows the Tunisian diplomat into the parking garage and stops there, he gets shot at by the diplomat. He ducks to the side and shoots back twice, when the diplomat rounds the Skinner's car to look inside. When he gets out of the car, the slide of his pistol is in the rear position. While following the diplomat between the parked cars, the slide is in the forward position, and after the diplomat gets hit by the car and Skinner is having his seizure and falls with his back on one of the parked cars (the car's alarm goes off when he drops on it), the slide is in the rear position once again.

Quotes

Skinner: Every minute of every day, we choose. Who we are. Who we forgive. Who we defend and protect. To choose a side or to walk the line. To play the middle. To straddle the fence between what is and what should be. This was the course I chose. Trying to find the delicate balance of interests that can never exist. Choosing by not choosing. Defending a center which cannot hold. So death chose for me.

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!
