So Mulder puts his suit back on and goes to meet Deep Throat at the docks. "Sure she hasn't followed you?" Deep Throat asks, climbing out of the bushes. Mulder is sure. "What are you doing here?" he asks. "I thought we might take in a Warriors game," Deep Throat says. Except the Warriors sucked in 1993. Mulder just pops a sunflower seed in his mouth. They stroll around the docks, as Deep Throat wonders whether he ever told Mulder about something called the Litchfield Project. Mulder chews and says that he hasn't. The Litchfield experiment, Deep Throat says, was at the highest level of classification. All records of it have been destroyed, all knowledge of it will be denied. Is there any project or experiment on this show that is not at the highest level of classification? It's not like Deep Throat comes to see Mulder sometimes and is all, "Hey, have I ever told you about this project, the Flargy-Wad Experiment? Pretty much everybody else knows about it." Anyway, it turns out that, at the height of the Cold War, the United States got wind of the fact that Russia had been experimenting with eugenics in an attempt to create a "superior solider." Naturally, Deep Throat says, the United States jumped on the bandwagon. This couldn't possibly be continuity again, could it? After all, Noel Rrrrorororoaooar told Doggett in "Essence" that the United States was attempting to create a super-solider, and that Scully's baby represented the first organic version of that solider. I'm sure that's just a coincidence. Isn't it? It must be. Because if it turns out that all of this actually does make sense and ties together, I'm going to have to tear my eyeballs out of my head in shame.
