The X-Files Saturday: More Season 2

The second episode of the second season still makes me squeamish. We are introduced to a monster we created, and it is gross.

If I knew how to spell the sound I make when I shudder, I would type that out. Seriously. That's gross. I still look away from the screen while watching this episode. It's one of the best monster-of-the-weeks of the show.

This guy gets bit by the flukeman and eats some toothpaste to get rid of the taste.


And then he vomits a fluke worm.


I apologize if you were eating while reading this. To make up for it, let's remember what it was like when Scully smiles at Mulder. As the series goes on it happens less and less.

Also in this flukeman episode, Mulder falls into a sewer. Falling into a sewer where people are being attacked is scary; he gets angsty about it. And wet.

The X-Files were still shut down at this point, so Mulder and Scully still meet on a park bench near the Lincoln Memorial. Since she lives in Georgetown and he lives in Reston, it's about the stupidest place they could have met, especially if they were trying to be clandestine about it. But I suppose it's a nice bench.

In the third episode of the season, Blood, townspeople are unwittingly being exposed to a substance much like LSD. Mulder stares at corpse's fingers.

Mulder and Scully have to "hide" so the guy who has just gone crazy from the LSD water doesn't see them waiting for him. Of course, Mulder stands in front, because even though it's the 90s and women can do everything men can do, he's still taller and really, he loves her so he wants to be in front.

Also, he's the one who runs up the bell tower to stop the shooter. And he gets all sweaty doing it.

Remember this guy? Of course you do! Krycek! This is one bad mother-effer, but we don't know it yet. Here, we just think he's kind of a doughball.

Mulder's not convinced.

For good reason though. (No, he's not just napping.)

Of course, he pulls all the string in the world and gets Scully involved on this case that's not an X-File, but really, it is. Then they get to have sexy morgue time.

Oh, and the Scully smiles again.
