« Tooms » marks the introduction of the character of Walter Skinner.
BACK TO REALITY
It had been a while since Mulder and Scully were reprimanded by the the FBI hierarchy. It feels really good to provide again a sense of reality.
Interestingly enough, when Section Chief Scott Blevins was approaching Scully, it felt very true.
Here, Skinner and the Cigarette Smoking Man feel definitely like the beginning of the pop culture phenomenom of « The X-Files ».
Not as great as « Squeeze » but superb nonetheless
I would have like more action scenes woth Tooms, but he's still disgusting and freaking even in the daily life. This episode is more to show the relevance of Mulder, we will learn he is always right.
I like the investigation, sometimes simple (intuition?), sometimes with science help (bones knowledge). The last scene with the escalator would have deserved to be longer, and I regret the death of Tooms because we'll never see him 30 years later (2023 would have been possible, with Mulder in a wheelchair LOL)
And, I want to mention the appearance of CSM, mysterious as ever, with whispered words through his smoke... ART
