Hartwell College, Kearney, NJ. Speaking of Yves Mouthy McLipperpants, there she is, dressed like a hippie college student. She slinks into the office of a Professor Houghton. Yada yada yada, when Professor IHaveNoLines's colleague (played by the dude who was Peter, Amy's irritating older brother on Judging Amy which I recapped long, long ago) comes to fetch him for carpool, he finds the prof. dead on the floor with his heart ripped out of his chest. That has got to smart! Peter looks out the office window just in time to see Yves "The Mouth" running away.
Can I just say that I am stunned at how unimportant this episode is as far as the overarching plot of The X-files goes, especially considering that it culminates in the death of three rather well-loved secondary characters? Ooops, I didn't just give that away, did I? I also wonder what the writing staff is doing at the 1013 production office instead of, you know, figuring out how to end this thing. It must be like:
Frank Spotnitz: Okay, so we have some time to fill before David comes back. What are we going to do with those episodes? I don't know if we even have four hours worth of things to talk about anymore...
Chris Carter: Dude! Scully and Reyes go undercover as exotic pole-dancers!
Vince Gilligan: No.
Carter: Maybe someone could kidnap that red-haired lady.
Carter: That short little redhead.
Spotnitz: Chris, that's Scully. You were just talking about her.
Carter: Okay, how about if Mulder and his sister go on a road trip to Mexico where they meet --
Gilligan: Mulder is gone!
Spotnitz (simultaneously): Samantha is dead!
Carter: Then who's that guy?
Gilligan: What guy?
Carter: Who's Doggett?
Gilligan: The new guy!
Carter: We have a new guy?
Spotnitz: I told you this yesterday.
Gilligan: Oh my God.
