Season 6, Episode 18: Milagroon January 31, 2021 at 12:01 am
The audacity of this Ethan Hawke looking mofo telling Scully what the Sacred Heart is. Catholicism is one of Scully’s core powers, along with lab work and eyeroll.
This is a good season for mustaches.
I watched this one recently with some friends. For some reason I thought an episode about a writer whose stories come true would be more light-hearted, but this one ended up being pretty grim. Still, the writer’s horrifically bad writing (and stereotypically ‘man writing women’ descriptions of what Scully was thinking) had its entertainment value.
I think that at some point the writer writes or says that Scully was going to die and I yelled “SCULLY IS CANONICALLY IMMORTAL!!!”
Panel 8 for the Season recap! Although 6 is a strong contender.
