I was talking to my mom last night about the growth of Beckett’s character since season 1 and I brought up that it would be really cool if they had an “all things” type of episode for Beckett.
Now my mother has never seen the X-files (been trying to get her to watch it FOR YEARS), so I had to explain to her the plot of the episode, the influence it had on Scully’s life and how everything that had happened to her prior to the episode would indicate a huge change in her character, much like “Never Again” did a few seasons before.
After explaining it all, my mom just looked at me and said “well isn’t that what happened in both “Under the Gun” and “To Love and Die in LA”?”
Now I don’t know what’s scarier. The fact that she’s right or the fact that she knows the episode names…
Only difference is that Stana didn’t write and direct those episodes like Gillian Anderson did “all things”
