Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: Scully getting out to investigate a scene where a potential killer is hiding on her own, instead of waiting for Doggett, Reyes and the rest of the backup. She is ambushed and taken for her actions as part of a scheme to free Kobold.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakThemByTalking: Combined with HannibalLecture. Attempted by Kobold to Doggett, bringing up his UnrequitedLove for Scully and that he can't compete with Mulder, among other personal things. Angering Doggett enough to grab Kobold.
* CassandraTruth: Poor Doggett was absolutely right about Kobold all along and nobody listened to him.


Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Doggett yet again, who is proven to be right about Kobold while Reyes and Scully are fooled by the show Kobold put on.
