Critic reviews for Ghouli
As always, The X-Files works a lot better when Mulder and Scully are actually working together, not apart.
The episode's a bit of a Ghouli itself, though how could it not be given the myriad contradictions, as often vexing as they are entertaining, inherent to the series' serpentine master plot.
This week, with "Ghouli," written and directed by James Wong, The X-Files pulls its second-riskiest plot device of the season so far.
Particularly remarkable is the scene in the morgue where Scully gives what she think is Jackson's corpse the speech she'd give to him if he was still alive - which he eventually turns out to be - before sobbing at how inadequate it is.
