wendelah1: Fox Mulder and Dana Scully (Split the Lark)
[personal profile] wendelah1
In truth, I haven't rewatched these episodes in years because they're so depressing; nevertheless Christmas Carol and Emily are essential viewing to understand and appreciate the character arc of Dana Scully.

Writers: Vince Gilligan,John Shiban and Frank Spotnitz
Director: Peter Markle
Originally aired: December 7, 1997

Synopsis: While visiting her family in San Diego, Scully is contacted by her sister Melissa's spirit, who prompts her to become involved in a murder case. During the course of this investigation, Scully discovers that she has a genetic daughter, Emily, who was created from an ovum stolen from Scully while she was a prisoner of the Consortium.

Most Memorable Quote: Just reading through the quotes is making me feel so sad.
SCULLY: Who are the men who would create a life whose only hope was to die?
MULDER: I don't know. But the fact that you found her... and had a chance to love her... Then maybe she was meant for that too.

Review by Joanne Larue. We have such a smart fandom. And thank God for the Wayback Machine.
A.V. Club reviews:
Christmas Carol by Zack Handlen
Emily by Todd VanDerWerff
For Emily Wherever We May Find Her by [livejournal.com profile] fialka. Technically this essay is about "All Souls" but you should read it anyway. Also watch "All Souls" when you feel sufficiently recovered from this episode.

Fanfiction: CC/Emily inspired hundreds of stories. These are my favorites.
Arizona Highways by [livejournal.com profile] fialka. My candidate for best TXF novel. Ends in MSR if that matters to you.
