The X-Files Saturday: Scully Gets Real

Season two ended with a cliffhanger. The cliffhanger started with Mulder in a tank top.

Also, I think the set dec in this scene is complete BS. That paper towel holder? No way. Mulder doesn't put his paper towels on that. Hanging pots on a rack on the wall? Out of character. 

Anyway, we find out later that the water in Mulder's building is poisoned. It's making him paranoid. He freaks out about a lot of things. Some of them are pretty legit, but really, everyone can tell he's not quite right. He feels all floopy and goes to Scully for help.  And gets some.

He has to sleep it off.

While he's sleeping, Scully does some investigating. But Mulder thinks she's on their side and he yells at Scully. Scully does not like to be yelled at.

She could have told him to eff off, but she didn't. She keeps helping him.

Mulder's dad gets shot. He doesn't take it well.

The conspiracy is getting deeper than ever. Seriously, it's deep. It involves so many people. There are Native Americans and Nazis. And Krychek. Mulder hides from Krychek.


Mulder wants to shoot Krychek. They fight. But then Scully busts in and pulls her gun and yells and it gets all intense. Then, she shoots Mulder. For reals. Scully shoots Mulder.

Like woah. Then she takes him to New Mexico to visit an old Navajo code talker for some healin'.

Mulder then goes limp arm searching in the New Mexican desert. He finds a box car full of alien-like corpses. Then it gets set on fire. And that's how the season ends. WHA???  

I don't want to spoil it for you, but the episode arc ends with Mulder and Scully hugging in a hospital room. Again.
