Recap: The X Files S 06 E 10 Tithonus


  • Age Without Youth: Alfred Fellig is immortal, but doesn't appreciate it and envies people who die. Even young.
  • Chekhov's Gun: One dating all the way back to the Season 3 episode "Clyde Bruckmans Final Repose".
  • Deliberately Monochrome: Alfed Fellig sees when people are about to die. Their colour fades and he sees them in black and white.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: Fellig tried several time to commit suicide, but nothing works. He's only in pain.
  • Older Than They Look: Alfred Fellig from "Tithonus" was a photographer who gained immortality by tricking Death.
  • Spooky Photographs: Felling tries to get spectral snap type of the trope and get a photograph of Death. He actual photos are more of the foreboding type because he can sense who is gonna die.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Life gets boring when you lose your drive. Love doesn't last forever, either.
  • Wall Slump: Scully. Agent young guy shot Fellig, but the effect of the bullet worked on Scully who slipped down by the wall. The obligatory smear of blood is visible as well.
