I've been told that this is one of The X-Files "mythological" episodes, which after watching I take it to mean the exploration of "The Truth is Out There". It's taking me a while to get through season 1, but remembering the first two episodes, kinda, what an episode this was. Nice continuation of the Government covering up the conspriacy arc, and we get a whole lot more Deep Throat in this one, especially his background on how he was responsible for exterminating an EBE back in Vietnam. I love that he isn't just a contact, but he has an unique agenda, which will make his character that much more interesting to end the season. It's really hard to believe this is the same guy who played the annoying Sam Clemens in TNG's Time Arrow. Jerry Hardin is great in this role, and I loved the conspiracy this episode had.
