Critic Consensus: "My Struggle IV" ends the season -- and possibly the series -- on a sour note void of actor chemistry, a gratifying conclusion, or any kind of fitting farewell to The X-Files' leading lady.

Critic reviews for My Struggle IV
After 25 years, 11 seasons, two movies, and so much drama, it feels impossible to ever say goodbye to The X-Files. But if this is the final send-off, it's one we can accept.
Outside of the Mulder/Scully happy ending (and yes, I see that as a happy ending), this episode was a mess.
Sometimes the only way to move forward is to tear everything down, and mercilessly.
I hope that Gillian knows that we see her, we see what has been done to her and to Scully, and we aren't sitting still for it.
As Mulder said in last week's episode, "I always wondered how this would end." We just hoped it wouldn't end how we always wondered it would.
