you ever think about how donut went from being a main member of the reds and blues to being like, a fringe member who sometimes appears but usually steps out during the biggest series moments (season 6 & 8 in their entirety, most of season 10 including it’s ending scene, any red team interactions in season 13 and 15).
and it’s all because wash needed to look intimidating and shoot him and lopez in season 7. season 6 didn’t include him either, but at least when he came back in 7 he was a main character. wasn’t until wash shot him that basically all of donut’s character and his relationship with the reds and blues were thrown out the window.
ever since then, donut’s barely interacted with anyone besides lopez (who’s also neglected; and they didn’t even interact in 15).
Things happen quickly the next morning. As Mulder and Skinner are loading the car to head to the airport, Mulder gets a call from the gunmen. They’re on speakerphone, talking over each other with excitement until Mulder tells them to calm down. He moves away from the open car door and puts a hand on his hip.
“We made contact,” Byers says.
“With Absalom,” Langly adds. “Dude fell for our line like flies to cow turds”
“I gathered that,” Mulder says. “And get a better metaphor, please.”
“We pinged his ISP in Helena,” Frohike cuts in, getting to the point.
“He’s here?” Mulder turns to face the car and raises his brows at Skinner. Skinner frowns.
“We can’t tell you where,” Byers says. “But he’s definitely in the Helena area.”
“What else can you tell me? Give me something less vague.”
“That’s all we’ve got,” Frohike says. “Sorry, man. So far all he’ll talk about is spreading the word that prior abductees are in danger.”
“Danger from what?”
“Being taken again. Returned as something other than what they were.”
“That’s what he called them,” Langly says. “An army of super soldiers that will destroy the human race.”
“Ask him what he knows about the missing fourteen. Get back to me.”
Mulder disconnects the call and slips his cell phone back into his pocket. He tells Skinner what the gunmen have just told him, but before Skinner even opens his mouth to ask questions, Richie comes running across the parking lot towards them.
