    Soo is Skinner dead then?

    Surely CSM is still alive, at this point gun shots are nothing compared to what he survived in season 9 lol

    Of course William is still alive.

    Scully is pregnant again, for real this time?

    Yeah this finale was dumb.

    Seriously, look at episode 9 as the finale.
    I kind of think it WAS the real finale.
    Episode 10 was more about setting up possible future storylines. But jesus, it was SO anticlimactic. I mean, all that shit about the coming pandemic was interesting to me, and all the stuff about william, and it came down to...a couple of gunshots? Some ambiguous deaths that can easily be undone? And this shit might be the actual SERIES FINALE?

    Look, my wife and I are hardcore fans. We have "I Want to Believe" t shirts. We like the episodes where Mulder is gone and even the ones without Mulder OR Scully.
    But after that finale, we were both just like "seriously seriously?"
    where were the cover-ups, the conspiracies, the revelations? I actually LIKED the final episode of last season and the first episode of this one.
    This storyline had potential.
    But jesus, I could have written a better finale: I think a lot of us hardcore fans could have.

    I rarely talk about bad tv; I try to keep my mouth shut, but this was just SO fucking lame. It was mostly about people running around with flashlights ( I THINK they had flashlights anyway.)
    I said before that 9 would be a good finale and ten would just be about action, but ffs, I didn't think it would be THIS fucking lame.

    We BETTER get a fucking movie or SOMETHING.

    Sorry for the rant. I'm just still really bummed out about this.

    “The Field Where I Died” randomly came into my head last night and I read the Wikipedia article about the episode to refresh my memory. Every time I re-read an episode’s plot I yearn to hear that they’ll do another season. Please guys, make it happen somehow.

    Sadly, it seems that Gillian has lost interest and is done with the show/character.

    I thought the new revival seasons were terrible and I can see why she doesn't want to continue. Chris Carter said he considered doing more episodes without her. I loved the original series but I think it just needs to be done. Anytime we think maybe we will get a solid answer or some closure he completely fucks it up. He writes in circles with no endgame in sight. That's just me though, I still love watching the first 5-6 seasons pretty much anytime.

    While this is true to an extent, I have such a fondness for the series that I wouldn’t care if he keeps on going in circles as long as I get to see the characters in interesting/well-written Monster of the Week episodes.

    Shooting CSM reminded me of the way they took out Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. I mean, come on.

    @elevenism I just recently read about Unit 731 and the atrocious stuff that happened there as far as human experimentation goes. Have you read about it before?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_731

    It just so happens that the episode “731” (aptly named) was inspired by it.

    These bastards got immunity for divulging the “results” of their tests to the allies so the Russians wouldn’t be privy to it.

    >>

    In other tests, subjects were deprived of food and water to determine the length of time until death; placed into low-pressure chambers until their eyes popped from the sockets; experimented upon to determine the relationship between temperature, burns, and human survival; electrocuted; placed into centrifuges and spun until death; injected with animal blood; exposed to lethal doses of x-rays; subjected to various chemical weapons inside gas chambers; injected with sea water; and burned or buried alive.[41][42]
    Some tests had no medical or military purpose at all, such as injecting horse urine into prisoners' kidneys or amputating limbs and resewing them to other stumps on the body.[43][27]

    Yeah 731 was pretty horrendous. Makes some of the Nazi's experiments look humane by comparison.

    Rewatching this show on DVD currently. Halfway through season 1. I do know I have to quit after a while, but man, this show was good in the early years.

    After awhile? You don't have to quit until season 7.

    Season 8 is actually VERY good and has some amazing episodes like Roadrunners.

    The 2000 year episodes of Season 7 are X-Files on auto-pilot and Season 9 is pretty much garbage front to back.

    I still don’t understand why people would worship a slug. They didn’t go in depth enough with that one IMO. Although I did like how it was basically Scully the whole episode.

    i actually like season 9, although it's gotta be my least favorite, as, it's convoluted as fuck. BUT, it's still it's still X-Files, and i like Dogget.

    i share your unpopular opinion wrt to season 8, for SURE.

    i would say, @diptych , keep watching. don't let the internet tell you that you have to quit.

    quit if and when you REALLY don't like it, not when people say you "have to."

    So Scully had cancer because of an implant, and she (and other abductees) were mothers to clones that are half aliens? I'm confused. I looked this up on wiki and still don't get it.

    And you won't. The mythology is self-contradicting and inconsistent AF. A lot of shit from earlier seasons just gets totally forgotten or retconned later.

    Not to mention actors returning as other characters.

    Krycek started off as a small character who gets killed off early in the series (Gender Bender from Season 1).

    Terry O'Quinn was in three episodes, including the first film: https://x-files.fandom.com/wiki/Terry_O%27Quinn

    edit: Also Kate Twa - https://x-files.fandom.com/wiki/Kate_Twa

    Ok, just watched Gerthsemane/Redux 1 and 2:

    So was the frozen alien a hoax? Were all the dead aliens in the locker/storage area a hoax? I'm stupid.
