Fall Pilot Season: Eleventh Hour
Hood and Rachel are back at the billionaire's house. He's wallowing in his son's old room in anticipation of his new clone baby's birth, and Hood lectures him on all manner of ethical and logical things, and finally shoves the stolen evidence in his hands, one of the fetus jars. This convinces him that the clone baby won't be exactly like his dead son because life experiences make up a person, not just DNA. We also find out that Hood's wife died a few years ago, which'll probably come up even more often than Rachel's sass in upcoming episodes. The billionaire tells them where the pregnant girl is.
They arrive at the clinic to hear the sound of flatlining. A middle-aged blonde woman is working on the pregnant girl, trying to revive her. She sends Rachel to go find some O Negative blood, and she and Hood work together to revive the girl. She informs him that she lost the baby hours ago, but that there's still a chance to save her. While Rachel is off blood-hunting, creepy fake nurse shows up for a scalpel fight! Rachel easily defeats her. In the meantime, Hood figures out that the blonde woman is Geppetto! And that she is the one Hood has been chasing all this time! He is shocked by this! She curtly ends the exposition with, "Nice to finally meet you, Dr. Hood," and calmly walks out of the room, leaving Hood stranded with the dying girl. Rachel runs back in, and they combine forces. Magically, the CPR works, and the girl is livin' and breathin' just like the rest of us.
Cut to Hood and the girl in a sunny park, clearly at least a week in the future. She thanks him for saving her and laments that because of the experiment, she now can't have any more children. Hood tries to comfort her, offering, "More love for the one you have," and we cut to expressionless boy going down a slide all "Yay! More love for me!" Or it could just be, "Yay! Super fun slide!" It's hard to tell, but seeing an expression I can finally recognize on him is quite an acting breakthrough for this kid, so bravo, young man.
Rachel walks up with a very important cell phone that she hands to Hood and he is like, we have to go, there is a "very delicate" situation to tend to! It's next week's case! And we're out. Wouldn't it have been nice if The X-Files had been as popular when it was on as it is in this current pilot season? Just saying.
