The X-Files, Season 11…

I’m glad that there’s a Season 11 of The X-Files, even if it’s only comprised of ten episodes.  The season premiere that aired on Fox network January 3rd was heavy on the series mythology, bringing together many of the core iconic characters of the series and its on-going themes of deep-level government conspiracies and alien involvement. The quest in search of Mulder and Scully’s son William will be a strong underlying thread this season, and we learn that his parentage “by way of science” includes DNA from the nefarious Cigarette-Smoking Man, perhaps with some otherworldly genes also thrown in. 

Poor Dana Scully spends a lot of time in the hospital this episode, getting banged up in car wrecks, troubled by disturbing visions, and almost being smothered with a pillow by a baddie; it sucks to be her.  Fox Mulder was in heroic investigative and defensive mode, really putting a Ford Mustang through its paces and dispatching Scully’s assailant at the last minute with a scalpel; the guy’s got skills!  There’s even a shouting match with shoving between Mulder and Skinner, who may be in collusion with the CSM.  In the rambling undercurrent of the series, it would appear that the Cigarette-Smoking Man is actually trying to exterminate humanity with some kind of alien pathogen, which is probably why flu shots are no more than 10% effective this season…  

There was a lot of action and plenty of tantalizing unanswered questions in the episode, and I’d ride shotgun in Fox Mulder’s Mustang anytime…

    I saw this last night, for myself, on your favorite network!

    Personally, I think Cancer Man has delusions of grandeur. Unfortunately, so do most other narcissistic sociopaths! And, people like that usually have the ruthless willpower to carry out their ambitions.

    As to why he wants William (his alleged third son)? I can think of two reasons right off the bat. With the first reason obviously being William’s telepathic abilities. But, the second reason might have something to do with his DNA.

    If it were alienized in utero, then samples of his DNA might be used to prevent that pandemic. Which would prove to Cancer Man’s belief that at least _one_ thing can be stopped once started.

      If my memory of the old 1990’s “X-Files” episodes serves, I think that Cancer Man had been involved in a number of historical flash points, including the Kennedy assassination! With his cigarette addiction, I’m kinda surprised to see him still above ground twenty years after the original series. Perhaps the aliens are keeping him going…
