    Yea that's me too. Even though there were some things I didn't like about Ghouli... it was still far better than the first episode.

    What a lovely, loving, relieved smile from Gillian at the end.

    Typical teenager - "I can make people see things, let's see if I can scare the living shit out of the two girls I'm dating. It'll be funny!"

    I sure hope Petrillo doesn't hear about you!

    I'm probably the only one, but despite knowing that William could project visions into other people's minds to see whatever he wanted them to see, I genuinely thought for a split second that Scully actually died, knowing the Gillian Anderson said she was done with the show. I'm glad I was wrong.

    Wonderful episode with a sweet ending for both Scully and Mulder. I'm glad we finally got to properly meet William.

    Probably a coincidence, but I liked the casting of Fran├žois Chau of LOST fame as William's visionary disguise.

    Was that the same abandoned ship from a recent Supernatural?

    That one was very good. And great acting of Anderson. Maybe this William thing does have potential after all. I am wondering if he is deliberately involving his mother in this visions or if it just happens on its own.

    I am a bit confused about Skinner all the time. I think he is there just to be there and rarely adds to the plot. For example, since Mulder doesn't seem to like him recently, why would he be so eager to share with him information about William?

    I really liked this one, the William stuff only now really seems to have much potential, I hope it pays off.

    I thought it was at first and then I realized that the ship on Supernatural was much bigger.

    Well, I wouldn't say that was as good as the last two, but it was certainly eventful. We seem to have actually met William and Mulder and Scully came close to getting their hands on him-- but he is avoiding them, despite having some idea that Scully is his mother. He used his powers of illusion to get close to her a couple of times, but didn't reveal himself. He also was able to use his super-powers to somehow find out about Project Whatever-It-Is, so he knows that he is the result of government experiments with alien technology and DNA. And now so does Mulder. Does Mulder also know that he is not William's real father? Or was CSM lying about that to Skinner?

    And what about all the other kids that resulted from these experiments? Have they already been killed or is the government still looking for them? Is William looking for them? Will Mulder and Scully look for them?

    And why is Skinner colluding with CSM?

    No, the ship from the Wayward Sisters backdoor pilot, from a few episodes ago.

    They really should have announced a final season, with a FINAL episode. That might have gotten people to tune in. Bringing X-Files back on this iffy basis was not the best move.

    The time slot is not great. At that point my family wants to watch the news networks.

    I'm still watching but I thought the episode last night was kinda boring. The episode last week was a lot better.

    I'm still watching, but it takes me a couple of days to get to watch something.
