    The action intensifies as Krycek is loosed, Scully confronts her sister's killer and Mulder has a revealing conversation with the Well Manicured Man.

    Loved the black and white flashback with Mulder Sr. and CSM standing menacingly over a submarine survivor, who assumes that they are the good guys and reveals his terrifying story about the black oil to them. Very effective showing of the sinister nature of the syndicate even as early as 1953. Scully burns through this episode and she is given the weightiest lines of the episode, especially at the conclusion as she ruminates with Mulder in the cemetery about the nature of conscience and guilt.
