  • Doggett gets closure in his son's death, as we continue wrapping up plot threads.

    Less an X-File and more an episode of Law & Order, but great nonetheless. Fullmer's conflicted, gray area character gets a moment to shine, even if he manages to rob Doggett of a more personal form of justice in the process. The schizo cadet almost seems added baggage, just so that there's something supernatural going on. The case could have been solved virtually the same way without his presence, especially since we have Reyes, queen of the extraordinary guesswork.
    Overall, a well-crafted, emotional episode that's been a long time coming.
