1. Tired of a depressed watery eyed Scully. She used to kick ass and throw her intellect around. Now she mostly engages in solemn monologues while she is on the verge of tears.
2. Tired of trying to find Mulder AGAIN. I really wouldn't care if they just dropped him all together and moved on with the new folks.
3. I liked it better when Scully and Mulder were respectful colleagues exchanging quips with one another instead of this depressed love sick separated couple.
4. Supersoldiers. Every time I hear them say that word I cringe. Just when I was already accustomed to shape shifters and black oil I have to accommodate yet another addition to the mythology that doesn't fit in.
5. Who is babysitting her son while she is out running around chasing bad guys or lecturing at Quanico?
6. What happened after she took multiple vehicles to her phone caller's destination where she changed her clothes? Suddenly its the next day and she is talking to her colleagues. Perhaps I missed something.
7. The exchange between her and the strange woman seemed unwise for Scully and the dialog sounded cheesy. "You have no one do you?" "You have no where to stay do you?" Really? Instant trust. Just like that. Yeah spend the night although I don't have a clue as to who you are.
I think the myth gets worse as the series progresses. Scully is no fun. Mulder is always gone. There are so many plot holes and new additions that don't add up.
Nevertheless I liked the team work at the train station and I liked watching the super soldier destruct. That was good stuff.
All in all I am surprised at how good season 8 and 9 are as a whole. I think Scully and Mulder were just too good to last or follow up on and all good things must come to an end. Once the main characters fall in love and/or a baby is involved that is a series kiss of death. I am still going to stick it out to the very end!
Now on to the glaring plot problems: (1) the two men in the beginning seem like they are there just to throw us off and our questions never really get answered about them (perhaps it was just a thug and a security officer doing their thing which had nothing to do with the parasitic agent), (2) so this thing dies from tap water, electricity and/or alcohol?, (3) where did the young boy come from and why didn't he speak...was he mute?, (4) would someone really risk infecting a population just so the commuters could get home on time from work?
I loved the set up but hated the numerous distractions that amounted to nothing and the ending seemed a bit abrupt for some reason.
