  • Pretty decent episode.

    Dangerous alien writing – and Scully wonders why they don't take her seriously anymore? That's what doesn't make sense – if they call Scully because they suspect she knows the writing then why not skip that and search the X-Files themselves, took Scully five seconds to get the file, complete with rubbings.

    Skinner worries me, in season 9, all he seems to be doing is protecting himself. I'm beginning to think we can't trust him.

    Scully's refrain through several episodes has been "He's my baby." Has she even had the DNA checked, has she confirmed she's his mother or what she can find out about the father? Is she afraid of the answers?

    Piece of spacecraft heads straight for William and hovers – that's the point when you completely freak out. She gives the baby to the Gunmen?! I wouldn't trust those idiots with my neighbour's cat, never mind a baby!

    Yet another 'someone's trying to kill the baby' episode but it was pretty good.
