  • Trivia

    • Plot Holes: Another example of the way "X-Files" plays fast and loose with time: Duane Barry kidnaps Scully in the evening - presumably he doesn't take her back to his home since that's the first place the FBI would look, so it's logical to assume that he immediately set off for Skyland Mountain with her. He shoots the state trooper sometime early the next day near the Blue Ridge Parkway, but although Mulder and Krycek don't figure out his destination and get on the road until sometime that afternoon, Barry somehow manages to reach the bottom of Skyland Mountain only forty-five minutes before the FBI agents do, even though he appears to have had at least a twelve-hour head start! Did he stop to do a lot of sightseeing along the way?
