Did You Know?


After Mulder questions Scully why she is putting herself in danger by going after suspects without backup, Scully says to Mulder "You forget I am immortal?". This is in reference to the fan theory that Scully is immortal. This idea first came into view when in another Darin Morgan episode "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" Scully finally asks Clyde Bruckman, who can predict how people die, how does she die and he answers that she doesn't. This idea solidified when in the episode Tithonus, Alfred Fellig exchanges his own immortality to save Scully. See more »

Guy Mann: I don't mean to get too personal, but... this has been a real trying time for me. I've been through a lot. But just having someone like you to... Look, what I'm trying to say is... I'm glad to have met you.

User Reviews

Entertaining, but the comedic approach could have been dialed down a notch.
2 February 2016 | by BandersnatchWhispererSee all my reviews

The zaniness of this episode will appeal to some X-Files fans but not to others. "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" has its share of laughs and even manages to sneak in some social commentary, but it lacks the genuinely creepy mood of the best classic stand-alone episodes such as "Squeeze" and "Irresistible." The series offered occasional milder fare from early on, but at times this one stretches the camp a bit too far. At its best moments it feels like an homage to the more whimsical classic episodes (think "Humbug," "Quagmire," "Arcadia," "Bad Blood"), but at its worst moments it feels more like a parody of the original series.
