Case 01, File 12: Fire

AKA: Good Lord, That Title is Generic

In early X-Files episodes, there almost seemed to be a fear that the viewers wouldn't care about secondary characters if they didn't have some connection with the two leads. I suppose this could have been born out of overthinking ways to get Mulder and Scully into the plot of the week, but the great thing about them being in the FBI, is that there are dozens of ways to get them into a case organically, without having some ex-lover from England wander in, hang around the entire episode, and then disappear without a backward glance. Which is a long form way of me saying that I'm not a huge fan of the woman who shows up in this episode.
