Last week, the newly reunited Mulder and Scully reminded fans how wacky and insane The X-Files can be, as they squared off with a werewolf-inspired horned frog man. But what was more important than the creature was the impact on Mulderâ€™s psyche. Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) has been the poster-child for â€œtrue believerâ€ since The X-files first debuted in 1993. His office was adorned with â€œThe Truth is Out Thereâ€ posters, and he told everyone who would listen about witnessing his sisterâ€™s abduction. The new conspiracy detailed in this 6-episode run of the series has laid siege to Mulderâ€™s theories of alien conquest. Thankfully, the horned frog man gave him a much needed boost of confidence. Scully (Gillian Anderson) has always been the yin to Mulderâ€™s yang. She is a scientist, a surgeon, and a skeptic. Her mindset this season has been to both calm Mulderâ€™s lunacy all the while being distracted by past choices. Her and Mulder had a son, and gave him up for adoption to keep him hidden from government involvement. This episode again forced Scully to deal with uncomfortable personal issues from her past, while an X-Files case is literally tearing it up in the streets.
