    Agreed. I enjoyed it considerably more than the first episode.

    Great Mulder/Scully dynamic, some humor, badass shootouts/fights, and a huge dose of nostalgia. More of this, please!

    Anybody watch last night's episode? Strange, creepy but absolutely brilliant.

    Just watched it. Definitely Black Mirror influenced.

    Latest episode was pretty good. I'd say solidly a classic X-Files episode. A little morbid though with the kids. Those are tough.

    Yep, the season definitely hit its stride in the last few weeks. Really enjoying it now. Just in time for it to go off into the sunset again.

    I'm really surprised nobody is talking about the finale. It was pretty bad to be honest. No wonder Anderson is done. If you take out the first and last episode, it was a pretty entertaining season.

    I thought the finale was the best of the “My Struggle” eps, but they left a lot of open questions, which surprised me. It didn’t feel like a send off— the church scene at the end of the previous episode did it much better.

    True, I would have been much more satisfied with the church ending.

    It was weird the way Scully suddenly didn't care about William at the end. How he was just an experiment. Plus, William was a bad kid. I didn't feel much empathy for him. I guess that was the point since he was CSM's kid and not Mulder's.

    Scully was a big problem for me in this entire episode. From her vague conversation with Skinner in the hallway, to her pointless phone call to Joel McHale, she was basically sidelined this episode. Strange thing to do with not only a) the best actor/actress in the entire series, and b) this being her so-called "last" appearance as Dana Scully.
