Recap: The X Files S 09 E 13 Improbable

Tropes of this episode:

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Burt Reynolds plays a bizarre man who may be God, the devil, or both. Just about every scene with him qualifies, but especially the very ending in which two characters who occasionally showed up in the background start lip-synching to an Italian folk song, during which the camera pulls away to reveal the area's topography looks just like his face.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Agent Reyes finds out that there is a Serial Killer at large and that his pattern consists murdering women in a set of three. Each set has a blonde, a brunette and a redhead. Redheaded Agent Scully and dark-haired Reyes get trapped in an underground garage and fear they might be his next targets.
  • Serial Killer: He targets women and kills them in a set of three.
