Five time it all happened differently. Mulder/Scully, spoilers for Requiem, hit the Future, Emily, Pusher, and the Pilot.

It’s been six months or an ext since i last to update this blog. The original purpose for it—rewatching The X-Files before the miniseries aired—has come and gone. Why did ns quit? The truth is I gained derailed through the miniseries itself. I’d fully intended come come back to this but I simply couldn’t perform it. I was also depressed. I’d prepared myself because that the renewal to be bad, simply not that bad. However I don’t favor leaving tasks unfinished. At the really least, I wanted to complete season seven. ~ that, i make no promises. I’ll have to see just how it goes. There space fans who swear season eight is better than seven, which was the worst, so far.

This time through I watched the last episode the season 7 in light of whatever that 1013 has foisted ~ above the fans because it aired. “Requiem” was composed to end the season, and possibly the collection itself. If the collection had transitioned right into a movie franchise as all of the rule players had hoped the would, presumably the very first feature would have been about rescuing Mulder. If the series didn’t gain renewed, ns guess Carter wanted to tie up as many loosened ends as possible.

Even through those goals in mind, the plot makes tiny or no sense. The FBI audit step feels more like chris Carter talking back to the Fox Studio Executives around his budget plan than an yes, really plot point. Next, without official sanction, Mulder and also Scully head to Bellefleur, Oregon to inspection multiple abductions. That’s a quite touch, because that’s wherein they investigated their first case in the pilot episode. Yet then, because that no great reason, they revolve around and head back to Washington D.C., having solved nothing. At the urging the Alex Krycek, that is league again v Cigarette smoking Man, Mulder and also Skinner go back to Oregon come look for a downed spacecraft in the woods. Carry out they bring any backup follow me on this risky wild goose chase? They carry out not. (Backup? us don’t require no stinking backup!) He leaves Scully behind due to the fact that she’s an abductee. They’re acquisition abductees and also he “doesn’t desire to hazard losing” her. Fair enough. Except–right out from underneath Skinner’s nose, Mulder himself gets abducted! The last blow is finding out that Scully is pregnant. Good grief! just how is that even possible? together usual, Carter didn’t deal with anything—he just finished with the worst cliffhanger ever—at the very least until we gain to “My struggle II.”

Despite its numerous shortcomings, “Requiem” is the best, many memorable illustration of season 7 by a long shot, and also certainly the many moving. Reluctantly I have come approximately to the place that it could have been the best ending for the series. It’s far much more emotionally resonant than “The Truth,” which was a pointless, static clip show. It’s light-years front of “My struggle II” in every respect: the composing is serviceable, the acting is stellar, the cinematography, breathtaking.

Mulder gaining the proof he want of alien abduction by gift abducted self carries a particular poetic justice. Watching that step right into the one of irradiate shining down from the heavens is surely one of the many beautiful images ever before filmed because that The X-Files. But it is likewise one that the saddest because this is the minute where the collection that ns loved finished forever. Dana Scully is my favourite character of every time but it was your partnership the made the collection so compelling come watch. Together a drama, The X-Files without Fox Mulder simply doesn’t work. It can’t work, at least not for me.
