    More interesting than the first part and a somewhat satifying resolution of this two-parter.

    I still hate the new Jeffrey Spender character and it seems a tad too convenient for CSM to be his father. Did CSM sire everyone in this series? And what's CSM doing up in the snowy mountains and why does he rely on a 12 year old kid to deliver his mail?

    The sequence where Scully gains access to her repressed memories of the alien encounter on the bridge is the selling point of this episode. Well done and very revealing of the alien war being fought.

    Also revealing is Krycek's conversation with Mulder about what is really going on. I had to replay the scene a couple of times to make sure that I had seen Krycek kiss Mulder. WTF was that about? LOL!
