Not as great as « Squeeze » but superb nonetheless

WALTER SKINNER
« 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.

UNREAL 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 ».

SUMMARY
Not as great as « Squeeze » but superb nonetheless
8/10

I will also prefer the first ep of Tooms, but this one has inside some good scenes too, like in Skinner's office, or between Scully and Mulder, with an apogee of their trust.
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
