Well, how about none? Because this episode is very confusing. On the other hand, I don't really care what happened, so I guess it doesn't matter. The bell rings, and her students pile out of class. "I'll see you Monday," Scully says, more to herself than to them. She's packing up her teaching materials when Doggett and Reyes come clomping in. They ask if she's filed her case report yet; she hasn't. They'd rather she didn't. Turns out that Kobalt had found out all kinds of things about each of them, including Mulder, "over the internet." They have internet access at the mental institution? Sweet! I'd like to get me some of that institutionalization, in that case. Lots of bed rest. Sunning yourself in the garden. Arts and crafts. Therapy. Sounds great. Anyway, Kobalt got them on the case, by luring them in with the Satanic stuff. "But we know all this already. It was a game, every move was perfect. Except the last," Scully says. But it was perfect; his body was never found. Kobalt is partying with Xena and Noel Roooaoaooaoaoar somewhere, I presume. "Agent Doggett shot him. We all saw that," Scully insists. "Did we?" Doggett asks. He writes the word "Daemonicus" on the blackboard. Why didn't Kobalt "escape with the others?" he asks. What others? Aren't the others dead? Are the others dead? Who are we talking about? What's my name? Which show is this? Where's Dawson? Doggett says something about "Daemonicus is the beginning and the end of the case. A snake eating its own tale." Apparently, Ma and Pa Doomed's initials were DAE. Dr Sampson's first name was Monica: MONI. The guard -- whose body, not Kobalt's, was eventually removed from the lake -- was named Custer. CUS. "Checkmate," Doggett says. Okay. What? Seriously. What? Moronica looks peeved. I don't even know why. Because I have no idea what's happening in this episode. At all. Moronica and Scully stare at Doggett, who leaves the classroom. After a moment, Scully asks Moronica if "something is bothering [her]." Moronica tells Scully that "it makes sense, as far as it goes." Really? Please call me, and explain it to me, then. "But there's something else," Moronica says. "Something he's afraid to explain." Scully wonders if Moronica means the "presence of evil" that she felt. "No. I mean that he felt it, too," Moronica says. They both stare at the wall. More Evil Whispering. Time-Lapse Cloud Photography. Oh, whatever. I give up. I just give up.
