The Serpent

// Cursing the Internet since 1998

Medusa

Season 8 Episode 12

Time for a rather crap episode which doesn’t explain anything, and ends where we started. Doggett gets knocked about and Scully just ends up confused and stressed. We start with some guy drying horribly in the subway and the Agents are sent to investigate. Working against the clock and the evil train director guy (played by Ken Jenkins, Dr Kelso from Scrubs), Doggett heads down to find some weird dead bodies and some green goo which seems to be attacking flesh. As usual, the Agent, the Transport Cop, the Scientist and the engineer all manage to get cabin fever and start arguing like a bunch of American cowboys.

Scully spends her time in the control room arguing with Kelso guy who just wants to keep the trains running, and despite still having Agents in the tunnels being attacked by something, starts them anyway and Doggett manages to narrowly being struck by a train. A rather crap episode, which left me rather pissed off with the lack of explanation or outcome.

The goo mysteriously vanishes and Doggett somehow recovers fully which even Scully can’t explain.
