This episode is super fun. It’s one of a handful directed by Chris Carter, and he shows the hell off with long tracking shots and other camera trickery. I keep seeing critics call the camerawork Hitchcockian, but it’s more like Hitchcock’s coked-up high-grade knockoff Brian de Palma. You can tell from the use of split screen.

Mulder kisses Fast-Talking Dame Scully and tells Actual Scully he loves her. Nothing gets Mulder horned up like a trip to the Bermuda Triangle.
