->From your training in seeing so many movies and reading books, you know your hero is going to be saved Ö Someone has something planned, because theyíre not really going to chop off his head ó right up until the moment when they chopped off his head. I was shocked, and then admiring of Georgeís ruthlessness. Itís a tough thing to build up a character and make somebody as memorable and impressive as Ned and then get rid of him. But at the same time it leads to a story that is so much more suspenseful because you truly have no idea what is going to happen and who is going to survive.

->The death of Deep Throat is so brilliantly handled that the show would be trying to [[FleetingDemographicRule replicate it's success for years to come]], but never quite get it as right as it does here. The idea of killing off such an established character is a shocking move because he has formed an integral part of the show's tapestry. Had this been [[CutShort the end of the series]], ''(Chris)'' Carter was bowing out with the message that nobody, not even Deep Throat, was safe from being tidied up by this government conspiracy. What a bleak, unforgettable message that would have been. With the show renewed, it has a secondary purpose of reminding us that not even Mulder and Scullyís safety should be taken for granted. Thatís something that would prove quite prescient very soon in the first third of season two. More importantly the execution is perfect. Thereís simply no way this outcome could have been predicted on first viewing because Deep Throat has always appeared so well connected. The prisoner/embryo exchange seems to be going down perfectly and Deep Throat is suddenly shot with such speed I was left reeling on first viewing. I wanted to rewind it to confirm what I had just seen! If you are going to slap your audience around the face with the death of regular character this is how to do it. Quick, unexpected, unfair and unforgettable. I donít think I have ever seen it done better, personally.

->The fact that the game focuses on [[GuestStarPartyMember constantly changing the party]] means that it has to contrive to get rid of characters regularly. Accordingly, all but a handful of characters die at some point in the narrative. In turn all but one are [[DeathIsCheap eventually restored]], but the game has an aggressively unrelenting sense of doom and tragedy throughout it, to an extent thatís slightly shocking even in 2015.
