Narrative-wise, this case file was replete with clunky dialogue, bad exposition, and just an overall lack of sense, capped off by a truly anti-climatic climax that was resolved far too easily.
Yes, I am a die-hard 'shipper, and Mulder and Scully were ridiculously cute this week.
The creep factor is offset by a broad comic tone that does not feel as discordant as it does in some of Carter's more out-there efforts.
Creator Chris Carter delivered easily his best episode as writer in the rebooted series with a story that answers that question and gives us a creepy horror story to boot.
It's an interesting story for Scully considering Gillian Anderson has said she's done with The X-Files after this season. Whether intentional or not, it gives the episode a ring of inevitability that echoes real life.
