4 corrected entries in season 8

(4 votes)

Within (1) - S8-E1

Corrected entry: Doggett says that Mulder and Scully first met Gibson Praise in 1997. As we saw in the season 5 finale "The End," Mulder and Scully first met Gibson Praise in 1998. (00:35:00)

Correction: The X Files timeline is somewhat confusing, since the show began in 1993 but the Pilot lists the year as 1992. However, at the end of The X Files: Fight the Future, the telegram that Cancer Man receives lists a date of September 6, 1997. The episode, "The End" occurs immediately before the movie in The X Files timeline, so Doggett was in fact correct.

Per Manum - S8-E13

Corrected entry: In this episode, Scully has a flashback in which she tells Mulder that she's learned she is barren, after which Mulder confesses he knows and the reason is because her ova were removed and stored in a government facility. However, in the earlier episodes 'Christmas Carol' and 'Emily', while appealing to adopt her biological daughter Emily, Mulder tells the appeal guy right in front of Scully that her ova were removed by doctors and she is shocked. If the flashback scene happened before the Emily episodes, she wouldn't have been shocked when Mulder told the appeal guy about the ova removal and if it was after it, she would already know about it because Mulder told her in those episodes. The flashback makes no real sense.

Correction: The scene in this episode isn't a flashback, it is either a dream or a hallucination of Mulder that Scully is having.

Without (2) - S8-E2

Corrected entry: In an earlier season, X said that a device for piercing the back of the neck was needed to kill the alien bounty hunter, because a gun shot "wouldn't do." However, Scully is able to kill the bounty hunter with a gunshot to the back of the neck. (00:37:20)

Correction: X probably meant that a gunshot to the body, not a gunshot to the neck, wouldn't work.

Within (1) - S8-E1

Corrected entry: Scully says that Mulder had been travelling to Raleigh, North Carolina because that is where his family plot is, but in the season 3 premiere 'The Blessing Way', Scully attends Mulder's fathers funeral in Boston.

Correction: He was going to see his mother, not his father. Plus the body could have been moved by Mulders request.
