Medusa - DSR Thoughts

Post by gorgclaud on Sun 27 Feb 2011, 17:16

I just want an offical seperate folder for this topic/ep/last scene, so its easily referred to and stays on this topic, cause I think there is a lot to say about this ep.

Im gonna number the scenes that are worth talking about. Feel free to add to the talk by starting your replies with the relevant number and feel free to add more numbered discussions on this ep.

Seriously, this episode is over flowing with DSR...

1) The whole last scene of Medusa is so sexual. They are talking about the case but there is so much more going on there than the case.

2)To me, this is when Scully shows how much she cares for Doggett, and i think starts to have some sort of feelings for him and starts to fancy him...Case in point, when she loses camera feed and cant hear Doggett anymore, she throws her electrical ear piece across the room.

3) From the Doggett point of view, I think by this point he is firm on his respect for Scully. He keeps calling her The Boss in this episode.

4) I love how he is always so gentlemanly around her. As he dresses up in protective gear at the start of the ep, she asks if she needs help getting her gear on....

5) Then she tells him she isnt going in with him, and he doesnt ask why

6) She wants to be the one to catch him in his room at the hospital.

7) Whilst he is beeping for the nurse, this same nurse is talking to Scully about HIS condition. The nurse tells Scully he can go home and Scully must have said to the nurse that she will tell him herself.....

8) Sponge bath!!!!!!!!!!

Discuss and add!

6 & 7
I think this is my favorite part of the entire episode. The fact that Doggett's in his hospital room, in bed, in an open-back gown, impatient enough to get up to go look for the nurse and then Scully walks into the room and gives him a good look from head-to-toe. Scully easily could have had the nurse go in and tell him he's been released, and waited for him in the lobby, but because she was the one who came into the room tells us that she told the nurse she'd go talk to him - surprise for her, she walked in on him in that gown and he "accidentally" (testing to see if she has an attraction to him?) turned around and gave her a good peek at his rear end goods. Which she noticed and tried her hardest to not appear to be impressed, and then her Freudian slip when she says the word "butts". Oh Scully... you just gave away your physical attraction to Doggett.

yes indeed.
so 9)

Eyes not head:

She only moves her eyes away when he walks backwards to avoid her seeing his behind. She could have easily had turned around or moved her head. Thus just moving her eyes away, these eyes can easily move back to catch a glimpse of his bottom!

Such a good point! Once the goods are already hidden from her view she decides to look away! (why hadn't I thought of that before?)

She is making out she is looking away....suggesting to him in a comedic way she has no interest, but from her obvious non-commitment to "not looking", she so is interested!

He is also suggesting she WOULD look by giving her "that look" as he walks back. ("That look" is saying "You Naughty girl, i know you wanna peek but i aint letting you")

Thats cause I know what I would do. As much as I fancy Doggett in my dreams, in real life, to know a man like that (*sigh*) for that short time, i wouldnt have put myself into that position and I would have turned around....but that doesnt mean i dont fancy him! but the fact that Scully doesnt turn around and goes to him when she knows he aint wearing much - well thats a trick of the writers I think They are showing us Scully is interested in some way.

Or maybe when i get to Scullys age with no action - maybe I would put myself into that kind of situation with a man!! biggrin

What would you guys do??

I'd pretend to look down. I wouldn't turn away. And while pretending to look down, my eyes would be looking at the man LOL

I really do think that the writers had ideas for UST between D&S, otherwise why even bother to put little gems like this into episodes? I think Frank Spotnitz is a closet DSR fan :) based solely on this episode.

I think so too. Frank has always talked about how he is interested in the story of Doggett having feelings for Scully. And he wrote the Alone Hug - which was initiated by Scully...

Medusa oooozes sexy DSR UST!!! It drives me mad and wild!!

So ok, thinking more on what i would do, i dunno if i would turn around. Doggett is so hot and sweet...I was watching Within yesterday and just remember how he captured my mind, my heart and soul with his mere presence....still feel it now, 10 years on when i watch him. Im not shocked how fast and hard I fell for him...

that reminds me of this guy i know who looks like him a bit - I dont think i would turn around for this guy either!! crackup

And let us not forget the comments Frank made about their relationship:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Oddly enough, Chris Carter was the first writer to give a moment for future Doggett/Scully fans (The Comfort scene in "Without"), Vince Gilligan was the next one to provide DSR goodies with The Rescue Scene, then Frank with "Via Negativa", "The Gift", "Medusa", and "Alone" (and other writers and episodes, but these three really go for the DSR stuff) - just discussing s8 here.

3) From the Doggett point of view, I think by this point he is firm on his respect for Scully. He keeps calling her The Boss in this episode.

Getting back to "Medusa" the one thing that sticks out to me about Doggett being so firm about her being the "boss" is that he's surrounded by these people who are questioning her and I think that really upsets him because he has so much respect for her and trusts her. I think it bothered him so much and him pushing the fact that she's in charge "up there" was his way of defending her without losing his temper with the others (not that Doggett has a temper, but you know what I mean).

He has a Reyes Temper!! LOL (sorry I mentioned her name here! tomato )

Yes, i love how firm he is with these people....they keep critising her and he hates it and defends her. Its brilliant. Its a good character thing to do. So to him SHE is the boss...for a man like him, thats huge and sexy. Shows how he feels about her. Cause no man who doesnt have feelings about a lady like that would think this way. I think you are so on the mark about how he kept saying it so it didnt push him too far...I like how these guys are trying to make Doggett see perhaps she cant be trusted cause she aint down there with them, but it doesnt upset Doggett in this way. He knows she has her reasons and even though he doesnt know the exact reasons, its just respect that he knows she doesnt do things without a good reason.

LOL Yeah, I like that... Reyes Temper. He really does kind of lose his cool when he's around her.
