The resolution of the best act (10/10)
By Jack on 2017-09-10

NEW AGE
Unlike most X-Philes, I am not finding "One Breath" one of the best episodes of the series. My concern is the new age aspect of the episode.
For instance, I do not like the opening scene at all. I find it cheesy and unrealistic. Also, the all story of Nurse Owens and Scully being on her boat to death doesn't appeal to me.

CANCER MAN
The scene of the confrontation between Fox Mulder and the Cigarette Smoking Man is one of the best scenes of the entire series. Both David Duchovny and William B. Davis are superb in that scene. The dialogues are also outstanding. The result is truly a joy to watch.

THE END OF IT ALL
The best scene to me is by far the moment when Fox Mulder comes back home after maybe seeing Scully for the last time. He slowly walks into his devastated apartment. The camera takes its time. And then he breaks. Mulder is broken. And here will be the most intense and emotional scene of this character throughout the entire series.
