wendelah1: (Dana Scully - Wetwired)

Does anyone else here find themselves thinking that just maybe the writers are resorting to the heroine-in-jeopardy, hero-to-the-rescue option once too often this season? At least in "Ascension," Mulder doesn't get to rescue Scully, which, now that I think about it, must have come as shock back in the day.

It was interesting to see Scully act as an investigator, visit a therapist to deal with her post-traumatic stress, and have prophetic visions of her own death while doing an autopsy. Watching her get targeted, kidnapped and hogtied by a yet another homicidal maniac—not so much. This episode made me break out my Scully-has-a-gun-and-yes-she-will-shoot-you user pic.

Writer: Chris Carter
Director: David Nutter
Originally aired: January 13, 1995

Synopsis:
Mulder gets a consult request from the Minneapolis field office on a case of grave desecration. Although he knows from the get-go that there is nothing paranormal going on, he agrees to take the case. Meanwhile, he snags tickets to see the Vikings versus Redskins, in the Metrodome. "Forty yard line, Scully. You and me." Things do not go according to plan.

Most Memorable Quote:
Scully: I know these things. I'm conscious of them. I know the world is full of predators, just as it has always been. And I know it's my job to protect people from them. And I've counted on that fact to give me faith in my ability to do what I do... I want that faith back... I need it back.

SF Debris's Opinionated Reviews. Their verdict - Watchable but not recommended. I concur.
Sara Stegall. Predictably, she loves it.

Fanfiction:
There's only one story I can recommend: "Interlude" by Syntax6, at Gossamer. Her fic is so good I almost start liking the episode.
