What can I expect from the episode?

After last week’s exposition-heavy and muddled opener (with its pervy overtones about what has happened to Scully’s body), we’re on more assured ground tonight with a fun caper that sees Mulder and Scully going on the run following an attempt on their lives.

David Duchovny, bless his heart, is still giving it his all at the age of 57, kicking bad-guy butt in a series of impressive fight scenes. And long-standing fans will get a thrill from seeing someone thought to have been killed during the original run of the series. Only in the final ten minutes do events verge on the ridiculous, though there are some key revelations about what this season’s major enemy is up to.
