What a beautifully written story, so fresh and originial, and at the same time so deep and insighful for the characters. I specially love Mulder and Scully´s dialogue over the phone (you really know how to dive into our agents´ psychology and persoanlity) and the last scene which I read listening to Mark Snow´s track “Release”, creating an epic moment! Thank you so much!!
At first, I didn’t like the thought of Elvis still alive, it seemed to me a silly idea, but you managed it well. And an Elvis turned criminal, who refused his former self, his fame and family to be an anonimous man still addicted to drugs is an original idea that turned my mind; and at the end it was so melancholic that moved me. Maybe moved me the most the effect that the encounter with Elvis had to Mulder, but the important thing is that this episode too was a pleasure to read. I always thought that, if David did a different choice, would be awesome to see a ninth season with Mulder and Dogget in action, as in “Vienen”, so thank you for gave to me this present, I think this pair could be a joy to see as for Monica and Scully. The four agents could have been a real pain in the FBI’s ass, and they can still be so, at least in our heart or immagination. I liked the moment in which John talked about Luke: he and Mulder aren’t very close, but the common experiences could make them friends, which would bring a great light in their personal darknesses. And last but not least, the phone talk between Mulder and Scully was so Mulder and Scully, that I smiled of pure joy reading it. *_*
Thank you again for your amazing work. See you the next Wednesday 😀
This has been my favorite episode so far, I love to see Doggett back, such a joy picture them together, I actually laughed a lot.
I love seeing Mulder follow his Elvis dream, it was somehow heartbreaking but beautiful.
And I specifically love this Mulder and Scully dynamic, their conversations and the final scene, very existence memoralia.
Thanks for this great job!
Glad you all enjoyed it!
