Recap / The X-Files S04 E21 "Zero Sum"

Assistant Director Skinner finds himself in a difficult position as a result of his deal with the Cigarette Smoking Man.

Tropes:

  • Bee Afraid: Genetically modified bees attack several people in this episode.
  • A Day in the Limelight: For Skinner.
  • Deal with the Devil: Skinner covers up evidence for the Cancer Man in exchange for him saving Scully's life.
  • Did Not Think This Through: If Cancer Man didn't kill the police officer, his photographs wouldn't have been sent to Mulder, and Mulder wouldn't have even known about the case.
