They so did it in "all things"

Post by Cassiopeia on Wed 09 Feb 2011, 00:39

So I was going through screen captures to try to find one to use for the "guess this episode" game thread, and I stumbled upon this capture of Scully from the very beginning of "all things" (s7) and is it just me or... do we see the tippy top of her black panties in this shot? Obviously her skirt zips up on the side. Are there any other reasons why she'd be zipping her skirt back up unless she slept with Mulder? I mean... I haven't seen this episode in YEARS/FOREVER (and have no intention to watch it ever again), but... didn't she fall asleep on his couch? Now unless she was just using his bathroom to pee...

I won't watch it either. The last time I did was when the s7 DVDs first came out and I thought that maybe, just maybe, it would be better a second time around. I was wrong. I was able to do the screen caps for the episode without having to sit down and watch the damn thing LOL Yay!

It bores me too. It was somewhat good character development for Scully but feels out of the blue and misplaced. Its a weird ep to me.

I really wanted to like this episode because Gillian directed it (and I think I read somewhere that the "implied sex scene" wasn't in her original script) but overall, it's not really as major and groundbreaking as the shippers made it out to be... though maybe it was back when it first aired.

I think the only scenes I enjoyed where the beginning and the ending scene but not as much as I could because the previous episode (and I was watching these in order, consecutively, from my DVDs) had Mulder ditch Scully in some dingy, abandoned stake-out area while he dined on fancy caviar and battle one of Poe's worst nightmares come to life.

In any case, all signs do seem to point to them having totally done it just like with 'Never Again'. They're always more vague about Scully than Mulder (the awful episode '3', and that episode with Fowley in Mulder's dream while Scully trudges around in Africa, comes to mind )

You know, now that I think of it, they seemed to have an aversion to Scully having sexytimes unless it's in some weird writing-comes-to-life type of dream? What's up with that?

I think I only liked the insight to Scully's relationship history with her instructor, and of course Moby's music wub Aside from that "all things" was NOT a XF episode, it wanted desperately to be a Lifetime drama.

In any case, all signs do seem to point to them having totally done it just like with 'Never Again'. They're always more vague about Scully than Mulder (the awful episode '3', and that episode with Fowley in Mulder's dream while Scully trudges around in Africa, comes to mind )

Totally agree! And... I'll be honest here (DSRs hold your bottoms)... why imply Mulder and Scully had sex? Just show it gosh darn it, Mulder and Scully are hot enough to make that hot to watch (so long as we see more Mulder skin than Scully skin LOL). I honestly think that if the MSR wasn't made into a teasing gimmick in the final seasons, and TPTB had actually showed us this relationship developing that I wouldn't have had such a hard time accepting that it was happening. Instead I watched going "ok, when?... never, right?" LOL

You know, now that I think of it, they seemed to have an aversion to Scully having sexytimes unless it's in some weird writing-comes-to-life type of dream? What's up with that?

I think that's a Carter thing and his vision of how women should behave. I think he wants women to be celebate and men able to go out and get laid whenever they want.

That would be very old fashioned and gender-typing of Carter but I think you are right, it seems that all of the women in the XF are somewhat subordinate to men:
-Scully following Mulder wherever he goes or whatever he does, even if it goes against her morals, while he often is somewhat rude to her (IMHO).
-There aren't ANY females with power to been seen in miles in the whole of the series (maybe Marita comes close to having a bit of power, but not enough to keep her safe).
- Reyes being a bit typecasted as a 'flowy-new ager', just as Missy was.
- Teena not being able to protect her children against the men of the consortium.
.....
I would have liked to see Scully being written by Carter as a bit more of a warm-blooded woman, I mean she must have got laid at least once in those 9 years?!

Anyway, I sort of liked 'all things' because it gave me a chance to see how Scully changed towards esotheric things while she used to be such a sceptic. I think they were expressly vague about whether they did it or not, to make her pregnancy and who William's father is more misterious. But you are right about it not being an X File.

This is just another example of why I think Carter doesn't think very highly of women and treats his writing of them with disrespect. Under Carter it seems women must always be secondary to the male/subordinate.

I wish TXF had stronger female characters, and I am glad that some of the other writers were able to write Scully as a strong, independent, role model female character, but I rarely like her under Carter's pen.

I did like seeing Scully being more open in "all things", but would have preferred it to happen as a XF investigation smile
