There's always a UFO hiding right next to where you are.
The continuation of the season 8 opener is much better than the previous episode. The entire episode takes place entirely in Arizona. The search for Gibson Praise continues as Alien Mulder has now disappeared and Gibson has fled to a hiding place in the desert. Scully finds him but due to lack of trust for Agent Doggett and a bounty hunter impersonating FBI agents she does not share his location with the others. Waiting for the ideal moment, she escapes into desert with Skinner and sends Skinner to the hospital with Gibson while she looks for Mulder in the desert. Doggett soon shows up and reveals that he knows where Gibson is and that his men are watching. Scully scolds him for having so much trust in his men and rushes back to the hospital only to find that Skinner has been gassed and stuffed into the ceiling while the bounty hunter is attempting to escape with Gibson. Scully is able to sharp shoot the alien through the back of the neck (what a shot!) all after being thrown across the room. In all the wrap up we gain a little more trust for Agent Doggett and find out that he has been as much a pawn in the whole charade as Scully and Skinner have. In the end he is assigned to work on the X-Files with Agent Scully and season 8 truly begins. I give this episode a 9 out of 10.
