Recap / The X-Files S08 E09 "Salvage"

Tropes

  • Driven to Suicide: Ray ultimately lets go Owen Harris, the accountant who unintentionally shipped the deadly container which got him infected when he sees Owen has his wife and a kid in the car. He ultimately gets willingly crushed by a car to end his suffering.
  • Implacable Man: Ray is unstoppable in his quest for revenge.
  • Revenge by Proxy: The people Ray is killing did not directly cause him to become a metal man but he considers them responsible and goes after them.
  • Shout-Out: To The Terminator. Ray Pearce could well be a tribute to the T-800 or T-1000.
