After the Woods


I have a huge X-Files songs and scenes playlist for all nine seasons and the movies on my iTunes, and I haven’t played through the whole list for years. However, with the show coming back soon, I decided to listen to it and am currently on songs from season seven. Well, when I heard Moby’s “My Weakness”, I couldn’t stop thinking about the emotional reunion scene with Mulder and Samantha at the end of Closure. That led to me re-watching that scene and the scene with Mulder reading from Samantha’s diary to Scully in the diner, which in turn led to this story.:) I know a lot of people didn’t care for that resolution to Mulder’s search for his sister and didn’t think it made sense, but for me, David and Gillian’s acting was so amazing in this episode that emotionally it worked for me.
