Recap: The X Files S 06 E 21 Field Trip

Tropes:

  • Fungus Humongous: It features a a giant underground fungal complex; the nonsentient growth sucked down its human victims and dosed them with powerful hallucinogens to keep them docile while it slowly digested them.
  • Monster of the Week: A VERY dangerous fungal complex.
  • Spotting the Thread: Both Mulder and Scully realize at various points that things are not what they seem and that they are in a hallucination.
  • Together in Death: In the teaser, a couple is shown cuddling and lying together in bed facing each other. The final shot of the teaser reveals they are already skeletons.
