Season 3: Episode 11: Revelations
I'm not sure if it's just me being unable to accept the fact that Scully can believe her faith and religious beliefs, but not accept her partner's thoughts regarding every other case they work, but this episode just annoyed me. What am I saying - of course that is what annoys me! And yes, I know that is the writers' fault and not the character, but really, sometimes you've got to think that Scully is a smart enough woman to accept the reality (or unreality I guess) of some of the situations she is in,
I guess you could use the same excuse but switch the places, as Scully says halfway through the episode, and there is truth in that, but I guess I see things more from Fox's point of view, especially in the field that these two agents work in. And this reversal is used reasonably well in this episode, which probably should have highlighted to both agents that they needed to be more circumspect about the others thoughts and beliefs, but I'm not so sure it does in the long run. What it does do is emphasise Scully's religious beliefs, and brings them back to the forefront of her character.
Rating: Holy hands Batman! 3/5.
