Recap / The X-Files S09 E02 "Nothing Important Happened Today II"

Tropes used in this episode

  • Bloody Horror: Shannon McMahon being punched through her stomach is rather horrifying.
  • Title Drop: Kersh does this, telling Doggett a story about how, on July 4th, 1776, King George III wrote in his diary "Nothing important happened today." Kersh says this to demonstrate that even kings can be blind to massive changes in the world. (This story is actually apocryphal).
  • Underwater Kiss: Shannon gives one of the "breath of air" variety to Doggett.
