Let down at the end
26 February 2019 | by jodi-44528See all my reviews

I thought this was finally when Mulder would get some confirmation that his beliefs were merited. Instead, it's a lame ending for a season finale.

As suspicious as Mulder is, why in God's name would he answer his phone when he was almost to the evidence? He had to know he'd be traced. As soon as it was the smoking man, why didn't he hang up?! That is the most irritating thing with this series. These two people are supposed to be incredibly smart but they repeatedly make stupid mistakes. It's like they have no common sense between them!
