Yet another breather episode marking time as we wind down the X-Files franchise on TV. Burt Reynolds was his charming self as something akin to a force of nature when it comes to games of chance. The dialog between FBI agents sounded like something out of plays with a bit of iambic pentameter tossed in. Doggett ruined that scene, though. Reyes and her numerology theory breaks a serial killer case, and the rest of the episode is played for subtle laughs as Reyes and Scully are stuck in a garage with Reynolds, playing checkers. Too bad they didn't explain the motivation as to why there would be 9 murders, or why the pattern was blonde, brunette, redhead. Was the serial killer compelled based on some equation that guided his action? The episode tried to convey that numerous times, but it sort of fell flat. But, it was a pleasant episode to watch, as the agents became more and more puzzled by Reyes's magic number tricks. Oh, I did enjoy the music on the show.
