Goofs

In every other episode, the ice pick to the nape of an alien's neck releases toxic fumes, along with the ichor, but in this episode, when Agent Spender and Krycek kill the rebel alien, they are unaffected by the exposure of the ichor to air, which should have been toxic for them to inhale.

The Cigarette-Smoking Man Tells All
19 October 2006 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

Part I of two. Patient X, Cassandra Spender, reappears as does "the syndicate" and the "alien rebels." C.G.B Spender, aka cancer man, explains the conspiracy to his secret agent at the FBI as the "mythology" seems to be heading to a climax. Cassandra isn't the only one convinced that she is the key to the aliens plans as Mulder and Scully scramble to protect her from those who want her dead... and those who want her alive!

After more than five seasons of developing suspense, it's a tad frustrating to have it all just laid out cold! Even as a stand-alone thriller, this is just too much explanation that should have been woven into a story whose climactic event, dealing with the rebel alien, is simply ridiculous in terms of what "the Syndicate" has been capable of before.
