Credits o' Pain.
Previously on The X-Files: Xena killed a couple of dudes; someone slipped Doggett and Moronica an obituary of one of the dead dudes; Doggett investigated Kersh for no reason that I can figure; Cary Elwes pretended to be an American; Noel Rooooooaaaar came back from the dead; Scully was elected Mayor of Denialsville; William moved his mobile with his mind; Doggett started to drown.
Maryland Water Reclamation Blah Blah Blah. Xena and her flesh-colored bathing suit drag Doggett down, down, down under the water. While Doggett screams soundlessly, Dread Pirate Brad wanders off to look for him elsewhere. Skinner follows, outwardly calm, but inwardly tormented by his lover's absence. Their secret love is very stressful! Hey, this scene is exactly what happened at the end of last week's episode! It's like on Passions, where they replay scenes over and over again, so non-regular viewers can catch up. This irritates me deeply now that I'm home all day, but when I start working again (on Monday! Yay!), I'm sure I'll be grateful for the fact that one day in the Passions universe equals six weeks in real time. Anyway. Doggett's all screaming underwater, and then he passes out and goes all green, like he's dead. Xena pulls him down to her level and smooches him. There's been more kissing in the last two episodes of The X-Files than there's been in the past eight years.
