As Season 9 came to a close the writers were looking for closure for their characters. Tonight in "Release" it was Agent Doggett's turn for answers. A mysterious cadet at the FBI Academy has answers that finally solve the murder of Doggett's son Luke, who was killed in 1993. It's a beautiful, haunting episode with gorgeous performances from Robert Patrick, Annabeth Gish, and Barbara Patrick, who appears as Doggett's wife. And if the story wasn't enough to make you cry Mark Snow's score will. Here are your best tweets.
We knew this day was coming and somehow after all these years it never gets any easier. The Rewatch Crew got together for one of the most painful episodes in the series, "William." Tonight we cried with Scully as she made an impossible choice about her son's future and consoled each other with the hopeful thought that maybe the revival will finally bring healing for Scully.

"The ones who never give up never die." In "Jump The Shark," what starts as an episode that seems comedic ends with most fans screaming. How can we say goodbye to the Lone Gunmen? Morris Fletcher sends Doggett and Reyes to the Gunmen, in search of an associate of theirs who may be a super soldier. The plot takes a few twists and turns but what we remember most is how Langly, Byers, and Frohike died protecting thousands from a bio weapon. Like Scully says, the world is a better place because of people like the Lone Gunmen. And as Frank Spotnitz said, "no one really dies in The X-Files" and we can only hope to be reunited with the boys again. Here are your best tweets.
It's an episode where lack of imagination cracks the case, which is a little unusual for The X-Files. Special Agent Leyla Harrison makes another appearance, Scully autopsies a cat on her kitchen table, and Agent Doggett saves the day with a little pyrotechnics. Here are your best tweets from "Scary Monsters."
"Improbable" is definitely one of the most unique episodes of The X-Files. If the Truth is out there, then "Improbable" is somewhere way far beyond that. It seems no one is 100% sure of what happened in this episode, but it's for different reasons than it normally is with The X-Files. Reyes is super into numerology, and there's lots of 3s, 6s, and 9s. Burt Reynolds is God? They all play checkers, and then Doggett saves the day. Plus there's this promo where Gillian Anderson first does The Fall. Get it? Yeah. I'll stop now.
