Babylon, the penultimate episode of The X-Files miniseries takes a look at the nature of terrorism, hate and love in the 21st Century while straddling the divide between life and death. Plus, Mulder takes a placebo that still yields insights to prevent a terror attack! This episode was written and directed by show creator Chris Carter and aired February 15, 2016 to an audience of 7.1 million viewers.

The news is still out there this week with two stories for you. First is an article from The Inquisitor chatting with Chris Carter on the return of the Lone Gunmen. We follow that with a really interesting interview with series composer Mark Snow in Vice’s site Thump.

Then it’s time to delve into this episode that has divided fans, some from the portrayal of the villains, some from the introduction of new agents, and some lamenting the impending end of the series. Then we look into the Spooky Drawer to learn about the Arabic word Bismillah, Theosophy and Madame Blavatsky, and Einstein’s Twin Paradox. We wind up this week with all of the terrific feedback from everyone!
