Recap / The X-Files S07 E04 "Millennium"

As the year 2000 approaches, the agents seek out ex-Millennium Group member Frank Black when some of his former associates turn into the walking dead.

Tropes present in this episode:

  • Fake First Kiss: Mulder and Scully share a celebratory kiss at 12 midnight on New Year's. It has no visible effect on their relationship in subsequent episodes.
  • Fully Absorbed Finale: For Millennium. It was not well received by fans, as it resolved none of the original series' arc and was mainly focused on Mulder and Scully.
  • Renegade Splinter Faction: The zombies are former FBI agents who apparently decided that the best way to fulfill the Millennium Group's prophecies was to carry them out themselves.
  • Room Full of Zombies: There's a basement full of zombies.
