And Mulder takes off down yet another catwalk. (There are a lot of catwalks in this place, by the way. I feel like I need to include a rendering of Mount Weather's floor plan in addition to the recap for purposes of clarification). More running. Running. Running. Mulder shakes his little tush on the catwalk as Noel Rooooooooooaaaaaaar comes at him from one direction and the Military Guys With Guns come at him from the other. He scampers up a ladder. Noel Roooooooaaaoaoaoaoaoaor chases him. They're almost at the very top level of the complex, overlooking the laboratory. In other words, it's a long drop. Mulder's heading up another ladder when Noel Roooooooaaaoaoaoaoaoaor catches up with him, lifts him off the ladder and starts choking him. He leans Mulder over the edge of the railing and is about to finish him off -- and what a plot development that would be for the finale! -- when Mulder somehow uses his foot for leverage or something and flips Noel Roooooooaaaoaoaoaoaoaor over the railing in Mulder's place. Noel Roooooooaaaoaoaoaoaoaor lands on a electrical grid. The suits and the scientists stare up at them, as Noel Roooooooaaaoaoaoaoaoaor fries and Mulder dangles from the catwalk by one hand. He pulls himself to safety, grunting. Once safely back on solid ground, Mulder's met by those Guys With Guns. He's trapped.
Last. Credits. Ever. There's no change to the tagline, which surprises and disappoints me. At home, Chris Carter turns to his wife. "Shit! I knew there was something I forgot to do," he says.
