"I made this" ...sort-of confusing.
2 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The main problem is that the episode is so unclear about whether the kid is evil or not. And it's not just that I didn't know what I was *meant* to feel for the kid, it's the knock-on effect on other characters. Either way this would be a difficult case for Doggett given his son's history. If the kid had been consistent we might have gotten more from the characters and the story would have meant more as a whole.

The Good: - Seeing Harrison again (although it annoyed me when she went around Scully). Makes me feel the x-files' FBI is a fleshed-out world with people conducting their lives off-camera. - Teaser was good. Nice play on what you'd expect from a Dad. - Comedy bits best bits of episode. - Liked Harrison's potential boyfriend (if he'd willing to dig up a dead cat for her, she better watch herself). - Fall into darkness was very cool. Nothing to fight against + don't see very often.

The not so good: - Agree about Scully not eating joke. Maybe they could have done the joke the other way around i.e. Harrison really wanting to show the photos but doesn't want to gross Scully out of eating, and it turns out Scully's immune. - Overall not quite whole-ness of episode (wasn't left with any particular feeling or theme/revelation). Shame because I don't think it would have taken that much to make it an awesome scary episode (with funny moments).
