This one is a bit of an odd duck. While it is technically a standalone “Monster of the Week” episode that is divorced of the show’s “mythology” arc, there’s enough discussion about Mulder’s missing sister that it’s integral to said mythology nonetheless. It might not advance that on-going plot, but it is absolutely key to Mulder’s motivation and the show’s focus on alien phenomena. How important is it on that front? Listen and find out!
