  • This one just goes to show that when the X-files was in its prime, its average episodes were THAT much better than anything else on TV.

    This episode is not pivotal to the series. There were no great reveals or conspracies. Have it or don't, it makes no difference to the over arching mythos of the show. So why is it so damn good?

    There's a good, and seemingly average murderer running around. The story is at times scary, at times heart breaking, and also really makes you think.

    Detective BJ Morrow is having an affair with her married boss (Terry O'Quinn in his first of many appearances, and characters on the show). While waiting for him at some far off motel to discuss the ramifications of her pregnancy, she has a 'vision' of sorts. She runs off to an open field and... digs up the corpse of a FBI agent who had been missing for over 50 years.

    Well, that's just odd. Enter Mulder and Scully, classic as ever in this ep. I won't ruin the surprise, or give away any of the shocks, but if you find the mythology to be just to much and like the stand alone episodes THen this ep is perfect.
    Hell, watch it anyway.
