Trivia: Mulder's experiences during this episode bear an uncanny resemblance to the experience of Christ in The Last Temptation of Christ. Mulder is positioned in a crucifixion pose, with a metal crown of thorns. He enters a dream stage where he is no longer a saviour (pursuing the truth) and can live a normal life - with the woman he loved (as Jesus does with Mary in LToC). Life passes by in jumps, people die. Outside the window the apocalypse is raging and at the end Scully takes the role of Judas in challenging his decision to opt out of his mission.
