The X-Files (S1-Ep12) – “Fire”

The X-Files Season 1 – Episode 12 – “Fire” ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Director: Larry Shaw Writers: Chris CarterChris Carter Cast: David DuchovnyGillian AndersonAmanda Pays, Mark Sheppard, Dan Lett.

The story of the “man who can start fires” is not among the most original, but it’s elevated by the rather spooky interpretation of Mark Sheppard (who would later star in both Supernatural and Battlestar Galactica).The script is by Chris Carter who finally seems not just understand the characters better but also to be having fun writing for both Mulder and Scully. What makes this a particularly entertaining episode is the “triangle” between Mulder, Scully and the British Agent, an old-flame (pardon the pun) from Mulder’s past. There’s also something interesting about Mulder being afraid of fire, though they don’t quite resolve that in the most convincing way and by the end they seem to almost forget about it. Overall, a decent episode, though I have to say, watching the back to back, these cliffhanger endings are beginning to feel a bit obvious
