Ok so remember “Kill Switch” when Mulder is inside the AI and he’s having that dream/nightmare where all the nurses look and talk like porn stars? From the first time I watched I noticed something this:
That looks familiar….
But really that entire part is fully of shippy goodness.
-I mean when Mulder is scared and in trouble he is yelling for his doctor: Dr. Scully (I wonder if he ever calls her that in bed?)
-When he really becomes desperate a fake Scully busts down the door and comes to his rescue. She is like his dream hero.
-And! While he is in this fake world his subconscious mind is screaming for Scully in the real world.
So basically the AI was trying to get info out of Mulder and was using information from his brain to trick him into giving away where the kill switch was. First it uses fear, then porn stars, then Scully. But somehow it decides that putting those necklaces on the nurses will set Mulder at ease in some way. It accesses parts of Mulder that he was probably not even aware of.
In his mind she is his ultimate hero! He sees her as the person who will always come and save him no matter where he is or how difficult it is to get to him he knows that Scully will find him. AND SHE DOES!
So for those reasons and many more “Kill Switch” is one of my favorite episodes.
