SPOILERS AFTER THE BREAK.

At the start of the episode:

XFilesMS2016e60020

At the end of the episode:

XFilesMS2016e60357

Which leads me to believe that everything between those two shots was nothing but bullshit.

And WTF. Episode 23 of Millennium written by Glen Morgan and James Wong:

In this episode, Millennium Group profiler Frank Black (Lance Henriksen) confronts the onset of an apocalyptic viral outbreak, dealing with the duplicity of the Group’s foreknowledge of, and preparation for, such an event.

What.

The bright spot was the re-appearance of the next-generation of X-Files:

XFilesMS2016e60054

It was exciting and intriguing but that ending was totally:

Hey, Chris Carter …

XFilesMS2016e60350

XFilesMS2016e60352

… what the hell was that?

Really, I expected to see John Hurt call Scully …

Haddon

… and ask her if she wanted to take a ride!

I’m not going to say we viewers were “owed” an ending, but what about this, dammit:

XFilesMS2016e60012

This wasn’t any sort of end at all.

I hesitate to agree with any Vox writer, but there’s a point here: Save The X-Files from itself. Replace its creator.

How should it have ended? I would have segued into a new series with them:

XFilesMS2016e60054

Mulder and Scully — and Skinner, and the Smoking Man — would have disappeared or been killed and these two would have been assigned to unravel just what the hell happened. Along with tripping over other x-file-y cases in-between.
