Trivia

Robert Patrick's character comments that "Ray Pierce has become some kind of metal man. Because that only happens in the movies, Agent Scully." Scully smirks with a response, "Does it, Agent Doggett?" Patrick played the liquid-metal Terminator in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). See more »

Goofs

Ray Pearce was able to stop a large car with a steel body (very heavy) moving at 40+ mph, which would exert a tremendous amount of force, yet he was thrown back by a shotgun blast, something a shotgun couldn't do to even a normal person. See more »

Quotes

John Doggett: What are you saying, Ray Pearce has become some kind of metal man? 'Cause that only happens in the movies, Agent Scully.
Dana Scully: Does it, Agent Doggett?

Weak episode...
9 July 2007 | by (Sandy, UT, United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly could not remember what episode this was before I reviewed it which is pretty rare for me. I figured it must be in Season 8 or 9 and sure enough. The funny thing is I know that I've seen this episode at least twice before and both times I completely forgot what it was about. On rewatching I have to admit that the first thought that came to my mind was to wonder whether it was a coincidence that this story seemed so much like Terminator and Robert Patrick was starring. There is even a little joke in there about metal men only being in the movies but this just seemed like a poor attempt at an inside joke or something. This was a lame episode with no real explanation to it at all. I mean yes the X-Files tends to have open ended episodes but at least we have some sort of idea what really happened even if it is not confirmed. In this episode the guy just kind of disappears and the show ends. I guess it is a good idea but it wasn't really handled very well by the writer and director. I give it a 6/10 simply because I did think the whole clipping off the metal from his face was kind of cool.
