With Cassandra Spender missing, and her son Jeffrey angrily attempting to push his way up in the FBI, Mulder has Scully put under hypnosis to learn the truth. The Syndicate, meanwhile, quicken their tests for the alien vaccine, sacrificing their own to do so.

I gave this ep a 4. It's one of my favorite mythology eps to watch. I like Mulder being the skeptic and Scully being the one with the experience. And I've always like Scully's hypnotic regression. It's interesting to me to watch them play the different parts.

I went with a "5" for this one, as it's one of my favorite Mythology episodes.

I've given it a 4 because Mulder finding the rebel at the end felt tacked on to me and I didn't enjoy the ambiguity of that whole scene. Other than that, it's excellent. The rebels vs colonists, Krycek and the syndicate chapter of the mythology is a good time for the show. Its conclusion leaves a little to be desired, but that's got nothing to do with this episode.
