Time for a very good episode which is all about temporal disorder. It’s all rather paranormal, but Agent Doggett and Agent Scully aren’t aware of it. Robert Patrick’s friend from Terminator 2 (Miles Dyson) stops by to play a prosecutor who’s been convicted for his wife’s murder.
Only problem is, the week surrounding the events is playing backwards for him and he keeps waking up the day before. So to start with we see him in prison wondering what the hell is going on, and events play back until the moment he’s at the scene and manages to save his wife’s life.
Although no one offers an explanation, he figures it out when he comes to realise he lied in a case once, and although by telling his good pal Doggett about it, he’ll save his wife.
Look out for the guy from American History X who’s still playing the loud mouthed inmate!
