This particular episode really packs a wallop. Not only does it showcase notable character actors Tony Todd (Candyman, The Rock) and Jonathan Gries (Real Genius, The Monster Squad), but it also adds two very important players to the series’ roster: Nicholas Lea’s Alex Krycek and Steven Williams’ X.
If you’re a longtime fan, you know and love both of these gentlemen. If you’re a newcomer? Well then buckle up, because it’s time for this ride to start ramping up speed. As for the episode itself? It’s a winner…
