  • Alien DNA being put in human test subjects

    The first X file season finale was a fantastic end to the season and it starts when a fugitive escapes the police and already you could tell that he wasn't normal after he was shot and hit with a stun gun.Then deep throat contacts Mulder and tells him about what has happened and that he is onto something big but Mulder can't quite figure out what it is.The answers they was looking for is the doctor who owned the car that the fugitive was driving.The doctor had something called purity control to create alien/human hybrids.When Mulder found the subjects the government was using they would try to cover it up when they destroy the subjects and kill the fugitive and the blood did something to Mulder and the government kidnapped Mulder.This then caused an exchange that caused Deep Throat to be shot and killed by a member of the government who had been seen throughout the episode.When Deep Throat died this meant that Mulder's best help to uncover the truth was gone as he has helped them so much throughout the season.Even worse after that the X files had been shut down.The alien used to trade Mulder was put into the pentagon by the mysterious smoking man.This was also the first episode not to say the truth is out there in the opening credits because it said Trust no one which was Deep Throats last words.This has left lots of questions for season 2 and I just can't wait for it.
