Storyline

Scully and Mulder investigate the murders of several Army generals who were killed when they were ostensibly alone. Mulder begins to wonder if the killer isn't a Vietnam veteran who has returned from the dead to take revenge against those who left American POWs behind. Closed circuit television footage shows just such a marine, believed killed, who enters the Pentagon undetected. With his ability to disappear not in doubt, it becomes imperative that the FBI stop the killer before he reaches his next target, Major General Benjamin Bloch. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Due to legal reasons, the Vietnam Memorial replica had fake names created by the sister of art assistant Kristina Lyne. These included names of the cast and crew. In addition, two of them, "Jesse R. Ellison" and "Harlan L. Hahn", referenced noted writer Harlan Ellison and model Jessica Hahn. See more »

Goofs

As the band begins to march, Scully and Skinner are running through the formation to get to the Jeep behind it; this is called "breaking ranks," and is considered one of the ultimate faux pas for bands and other musical corps. See more »

Unrequited retreads on the x-files idea of military personnel seeking revenge on their former commanders from Vietnam. The idea is not new, but the suspense is what makes this episode interesting to watch. The teaser is an idea that the x-files uses from time to time where they show events toward the end of the episode that are usually very tense. You are then left guessing as to how they arrived at that suspenseful moment. I like these kind of teasers. They really grab my attention. A few other things I would like to mention. The bleeding eye scene looked pretty real, and gross. The extras used for the parade scene are, well, extras. It's funny to see average, everyday people trying to act. And when Teager gives his fellow soldier those names, it makes you wonder what that soldier did with them. In summary, this is the third x-files episode about vengeful soldiers, following Sleepless and The Walk. And Sleepless also had a disappearing soldier. Being an old theme, the episode loses some of its charm. But viewed by itself, the suspense is what makes Unrequited a good episode to see.
