  • Brilliant mythology episode

    "Due to what?" "She's dying!" It was a beautiful way to open the episode - with Mulder still in denial about Scully's impending death, Skinner fighting him off, watching it from Scully's bedside where the glass cuts off the sound. Overall, I liked this episode the best out of the three possibly because it has all the "answers" and ties all the loose ends (as much as possible for an X-File). I thought the writing was brilliant, the acting was so convincing and the story was so touching. I don't usually give 10.0 ratings (very rarely) but this episode is up there in my top 5 ultimate favorite X-File episodes. Just the epitome of X-Files mythology. Scully's cancer, the culmination of the threats and CSM's role in this, Mulder's desperate quest for answers and solutions amid his own collapsing belief system, and the treacherous twists within the FBI heirarchy.
