Storyline

Scully and Mulder participate in a raid on a group of right-wing extremists who are obviously planning an attack of some kind. Mulder has been receiving anonymous notes from someone who knows of the plan. When they stop the terrorists, one of the men turns out to be Mulder's old nemesis Alex Krycek, who claims to be the person who was feeding him information. Meanwhile, a diplomatic courier is caught smuggling a mineral-like object into the United States. Mulder contacts Marita Covarrubias of the UN to learn more about its origin. He and Krycek are soon on their way to Russia. Written by garykmcd

Jumping The Shark
2 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This, and its follow-up episode, signified major trouble afoot. This is where X-Files "Jumps The Shark", and was a sad day indeed.

This would mark a watershed low in the series. Where past so-so episodes were still enjoyable, such was not the case in this instance. Had the feel of a really bad mini-series. Gulag Schmulag.

I find this to be a major turning point for the series.

However, to be fair, the quality of the series lasted much longer than most all other programs, (as this was Season 4) and unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. No matter how slowly that end may ultimately arrive. A rabid weekly viewer, I was now delegated to "on occasion" status after this, which would subsequently become "never", not long after that.
