The Serpent

// Cursing the Internet since 1998

Unrequited

Season 4 Episode 16

War comes back to haunt Washington when some vet goes around killing senior generals because they tried to bury his existence and erase him from history. For some strange reason, people can’t see him when looking directly at him (think this is some lame metaphor for those hero’s that the US government forgot about), and as a result, Mulder, Scully and Skinner all have to spend the episode finding him, loosing him, finding him again, shooting him and then reflecting on the whole dam thing. Not a lot of interest at all – though Scully and Mulder did witness a woman bleeding from the eye, though Scully does give us a scientific reason as to why this might happen. Still weird though… don’t you think…?
