A Scully ditch provides the opportunity to get some real answers in the quest for the truth. Takes place right after Two Fathers/One Son.
I puffy heart this story so much. It fulfills my post-One Son need for Mulder to have to suffer for his treatment of Scully in that episode (even if it's Scully who's feeling most of the pain). I can be rather masochistic in my enjoyment of the pain of the rift caused by Mulder's unwillingness to believe that Fowley would betray him. I'm like a mutant who feeds off the intense Mulder-Scully feels, and this story has plenty of calories to burn off.
