Storyline

Deep Throat contacts Mulder in the middle of the night to give him some important information. A man successfully evaded police when at the end of a high speed chase, he jumps into the river and promptly disappears. One of the officers did manage to shoot but the blood he leaves behind is green. Mulder follows the clues and it leads him to information that he only dreamed existed. It does mean death for someone however and perhaps the end of the X Files investigations. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The fact that the lab is in Pandora Street is a clear reference of the myth of Pandora's Box, where all humanity's evils was contained and then unleashed. See more »

Goofs

The police chase involves a Buick Century as the suspect's car. However, when Mulder asks the alleged owner (Dr. Berube) about his car, they mention that it is a Ciera (Oldsmobile), a different car altogether, though it was built on the same platform. What's more, the Buick that is shown is clearly from the late eighties (1988 at the latest) judging from the headlight style. Scully and Mulder determine that one of the two identical cars belong to a rental agency and it is extremely unlikely that a 6-year old (or more) car would have been kept in a rental agency's fleet.

Season Finale
25 September 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

What a great way to end the first season of the x-files.An apparent unrelated.minor car chase leads the agents to the discovery of what seems to be concrete evidence of a government conspiracy.The early sequence of the man being chased who then is shot emits green blood which has toxic properties is a classic.Also Deep Throat plays an important part i this episode though can the agents trust him after his lies in E.B.E?A stunning moment happens when Mulder enters the warehouse and before his very eyes is bodies in tanks of water.When he returns with Scully the bodies are gone much to Mulders disgust.He thought he had irrefutable,indisputable proof.This episode must be watched!
