I don’t even remember how Krycek ended up in a Tunisian prison. It’s always something with that guy.
I think Krycek being thrown in an Indonesian prison happens offscreen (I think we last saw him trying to blackmail Skinner using nanotechnology), but I’m not 100% sure either.
I wish there had been more late-series uses of him that amounted to more than “And Krycek is also there!” Because I think he’s kind of a neat character in that he’s someone who does whatever he thinks is in his own self-interest at a given point, and it results in him being in a far worse off place than if he had tried to be even a moderately good person, which I think is a fun type of character to have in your conspiracy theory based TV show. MORE KRYCEK
Incidentally I’ve updated my unofficial index to Monster of the Week to include season 7 (and will continue to update it if any bonus material is released): http://kontext-away.com/MotW.html
Thanks for this!
Nit: The text of the page says “last updated 27 September 2020”, but the page info says it was last modified January 15, 2023 at 11:56:36 EST.
Random Nit because I clicked on the link: The text for the first panel S01 S02, E10, (Red Museum”) that continues below the edge looks to me like it says ‘Fences”‘; that is, the phrase is “Picket Fences” in quotes, referencing the show Picket Fences, and I think the next words might be “crossover and”.
Was there going to be a Picket Fences crossover?
IMDB says yes:
This was originally conceived as an inter-network crossover between The X-Files (1993) and Picket Fences (1992), but was rewritten to stand alone when negotiations fell through.
Thanks! I’ve just removed the ‘last updated’ line because there is a 0% chance I’ll remember to update it if and when MotW tackles season 8. [fingers crossed]
Later appearances by Krycek to Mulder and Scully always seemed amount to… Kryceck appears, Mulder and/or Scully beat him up and cuff him, he talks his way out of being shot, he manages to escape.
No wonder he started in on Skinner.
