‘X-Files’: Series 10, Episode 6 – My Struggle II | TV Review

X-Files 09.02.2016ANDREW


Last night was the sixth, and last, in the series of the X-Files reboot, which aired on Channel 5. This episode tried to tie up the overall alien conspiracy and bring a finale to the programme, albeit for the second time in its history.


This episode again features Agents Miller (Robbie Amell) and Einstein (Lauren Ambrose), who were introduced during the previous episode. They help Scully (Gillian Anderson) locate Mulder (David Duchovny), who is on one of his missions trying to put the world bang to rights.


The episode reprises Agent Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish), and even Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis). The latter, of course, was assumed dead come the programme finale in 2002. Those familiar with the show will have noticed the absence of Agent John Doggett (Robert Patrick), which was one of a few things that disappointed in this episode.


Basically, a contagion has broken out amongst the population, and all five agents, amongst others, are out there trying to halt it. There are talks of alien DNA, mapping gene codes and other assorted science fiction meets science reality.


The minutes were ticking away, and you tried to figure how this episode would wrap up the programme in general, and do so properly. The ending is so much of a cliffhanger, that the multitude of things left unresolved could only possibly be settled with a third movie. This, of course, has been hinted at in the past, but it certainly is not a given to happen.
