When Mulder and Scully leave the church they find that three steel piles were detached from the church's fence near the entrance just at the sidewalk. It makes no sense for Juliet to remove those piles right at the entrance and moreover to remove three piles just beside each other. This way everybody can easily spot the missing piles just by walking at the sidewalk next to the church and while removing them she must be extra cautious not to get spotted. See more »


Dana Scully: I need what you have. You always bear north, Mulder... no matter which way, or how hard, the wind blows against you.
Fox Mulder: [after long pause] I think all I have... all any of us have, are the results of all the choices that we've made. And at the end of the day, we just hope... that we made the right one.

Why all the negative reviews...
3 May 2019 | by stuartcunliffeSee all my reviews

Ok, to sum up i've seen all x files up to this one. Enjoyed this, because of all the bad reviews i almost didn't watch it, the AI episode a few back was probably the only episode i've ever turned off it was that bad. This episode is about fear of getting old, manipulation and extremes people are willing to do to avoid it. Enjoyed the performances from other cast members, qwirky at times beyond the obvious blood. If you're a fan and and watched the earlier episodes i know it's not quite the same, but this was ok. As other reviewers have mentioned...'Home' comes to mind but it certainly isn't that, but then that's one of the finest...give it a try.
