X-Files Mythology - Vol. 4: Super Soldiers DVD

SKU ID #62845
The fourth and final volume of the X-Files Mythology series picks up in season 8, with Agent John Doggett (Robert Patrick of Terminator 2) entrenched as the partner of Agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson). That leads to some obvious friction when Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) makes an improbable return and finds himself shut out of the branch that he created and worked in for so long. Also making an improbable return is a young man named Billy Miles (Zachary Ansley), who after being pronounced dead, sheds his skin to become a Super Soldier, a nearly invulnerable alien assassin created to wipe out the human race as part of the colonization plot revealed in volume 3. Other super soldiers during the season included Lucy Lawless (Xena), Terry O'Quinn (Millennium), and Adam Baldwin (Firefly). While this seemed at times like a warmed-over version of the former green-blooded alien bounty-hunters arc, it took a different twist when it directly involved Scully's new baby, William.

By season 9, Scully had ceased active duty on the X-Files, and many loyal viewers had stopped watching as well. Doggett's new partner was Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish), who had been introduced in season 8 as a cult-ritual expert. Gish, whose character had her own history with Doggett, was a solid addition to the cast (though sometimes reduced to the role of baby carrier). Duchovny was officially gone from the opening credits and most of the episodes, and he and Scully were officially no longer platonic (which usually means jumping the shark). But he did return for the series finale, which over the course of a double-length episode neatly summed up this whole mythology arc. Volume 4's bonus features are the thinnest of the series, consisting of the last installment of the "Mythology" documentary, featuring appearances by the crew plus Robert Patrick and Annabeth Gish, and commentary tracks on two episodes.
