wendelah1: Mulder and Scully (One Life of so much Consequence)
[personal profile] wendelah1 posting in [community profile] xfilesficrecs
The first time I watched "Duane Barry," the twist ending was a shock. I was even surprised that Duane Barry’s implants weren’t just a figment of his imagination. When Mulder confronts Scully with the evidence, I wanted her to keep an open mind. After all, she’s seen this kind of thing before—she handed a similar metal object to Blevins during the pilot episode. But she’s still thinking about what the ballistics guy said to her—about the etching on the metal–when she waves the implant in front of the register at the market. It looked impulsive, but Scully is a scientist. Maybe she was testing a hypothesis?

Honestly, as many times as I’ve rewatched it, I still can’t make sense of the ending. But overall, this was a well-constructed, exciting episode.

Krycek has almost no role to play in this drama other than to fetch coffee and look like a third wheel. But don’t worry, Fans of Alex, he’s back in a major way in "Ascension."

RECS, because that's why you're here.

This fic is mostly an interesting backstory for Krycek, interspersed with Mulder guilt-tripping about Scully's abduction.
