Let's hop into a time machine and go back, back to the third season, before the cancer, before the bees, where UST still reigned supreme and every week brought a brand new mystery to unravel.

I just like it when Scully speaks German. And I'm sad that the show never again uses this piece of canon. Also interesting here is the sister angle, fathers and sisters even.

Mulder and Scully shot from below looking down

Writer: Vince Gilligan
Director: Rob Bowman (I am noticing a theme here)
Originally aired: October 27th, 1996

Synopsis: A woman gets abducted outside a drug store after having a passport photo taken. The developed photo is ~spooky. Mulder waxes poetical about psychic photography. Meanwhile, the abducted woman is found lobotomised and another woman is abducted. Scully is badass in arresting Gerry Schnauz but he escapes and targets her next. Dun, dun, duuuun...

(tree is really bad at synopses in case you haven't noticed.)

SCULLY: Aufhören! Ich habe keine Unruhe. Ich habe keine Unruhe. Ich brauche nicht gerettet zu werden
(Stop! I have no unrest. I have no unrest. I don't need to be saved.)

Why "Redux" and "Redux II"? It's quite simple. As the resolution to the season four cancer arc, these episodes are essential additions to a Scully-centric episode rewatch.

Writer: Chris Carter
Director: R. W. Goodwin (Part One) and Kim Manners (Part Two)
Originally aired: November 2, 1997, November 9, 1997

Synopsis: Although together Redux and Redux II resolve the multiple cliffhangers from season four's finale "Gethsemane," you don't need to watch it first because they recap it at the beginning of "Redux." Though Mulder isn't really dead, Scully really is terminally ill. As she is giving testimony to a committee of FBI bigwigs, including some Consortium moles, she collapses and is rushed to the hospital and put on a ventilator. This brings Mulder out of hiding just in time to break into the D.O.D. and get her another chip. Lots of other stuff happens too. We'll get to all that in the discussion.

Most Memorable Quote:

SCULLY: I've come so far in my life on simple faith, and now when I need it the most I just push it away. I mean, why ... why do I wear this? (Scully holds up the cross necklace) Why do I wear this, Mom? I put something that I don't even know or understand under the skin of my neck. I will subject myself to these crazy treatments, and I keep telling myself that I'm doing everything I can, but it's a lie!
