Season 2 Episode 19

Now for one of my favourite episodes. Mulder and Scully go in search of a ghost ship which may have discovered a new kind of Bermuda Triangle. Naturally, they get stranded on the ship, with a crazed sailor who’s starting to loose it, and much worse…. every thing’s ageing extremely rapidly. Help doesn’t come quickly when crazed sailor locks himself into the only supply of good water on the ship, and Mulder and Scully begin to feel the effects of severe oldness. Faced with death, Scully recounts the moments after she was rescued from her major kidnapping\abduction, and realised she no longer fears death, Mulder on the other hand doesn’t seem to think it’s his time, even though he looses conciousness.

With hell looking like it’s about to freeze over for the pair, rescue teams storm the ship, find the curled up wrinkly agents and whisk them to safety. All’s well that ends well.
