Weakest of the trilogy
11 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

After two underrated episodes, 'The Sixth Extinction II: Amor Fati' really disappointed me with its boring storyline. For instance, Mulder has a unidentified brain disease, which makes Cancer Man kidnap him to a strange house where in dream-like visions Mulder sees his abducted sister and Diana Fowley tries to seduce him into living with her.

Then, I started to wonder about the spaceship? Answer: Forget about all that, this episode only really focuses on Mulder and Cigarette-Smoking Man, giving us no answers.

3/10 I've never been a mythology lover, but this is just annoying and far too confusing for me to enjoy.
