I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched just these few seconds from this episode. It is so beautiful. The look on Maggie’s face when she sees Mulder hovering above her. She’s seeing him from a different perspective, one that her daughter has seen him from on more times than she ever cared to remember. I could write pages on the heaviness of this scene and it would never do it any justice. Why look at Mulder? Why not her own daughter who is standing over her as well, rubbing her shoulder? This is a man she has grown to love as her own over the past 23 years. The man who in the beginning she thought of as a danger to her daughter. Now he is the familiar face of a man who loves and protects her daughter, the man who will continue to protect her and love her when she leaves this earth. The father of her grandchild. She is at peace knowing that he is there and will always be there for her baby girl. And Scully witnesses this fast interaction. She sees this from the perspective her mother has always been the bearer of. It is so easy to feel safe and comforted by Fox Mulder. Both Scully women have now been on the receiving end of such a powerful feeling. A dark wizard, indeed. What a way to go. These few seconds need to be talked about for eternity.
