Season 3: Episode 1: The Blessing Way
We aren't left hanging too long here, with the Navajo finding Mulder passed out at an old escape route from the container, along with the selective dead alien body, and they have to perform an ancient ritual to return him to normal. Scully's job looks in danger, Cigarette Smoking Man is being difficult and Skinner still doesn't know what to do or whom to believe.
As what has turned out to be the middle ep in a three-part story this acts like a bridge I guess. I wasn't overly taken by the appearance of Deep Throat or Bill Mulder in the death-or-other-world sequences, but I'm sure it was felt necessary to have them have their say in Mulder's head.
Rating: To die or not to die. 4/5
