Sci-Fi Theorizer: Mulder Seeing Dead People
Contest Hosted by Joe Crowe, June 19, 2002

Um...who cares? (your_mail_name_here@yahoo.com)

The Theorizer automatically rejects entries such as this, and sentences their sender to quarantine...


Early LSD experiments in the FBI. (lyndas@farn.org)

The Gunmen weren't dead. No way in hell. The deal with Muldy talking to them and then the next minute they were gone shows their skills in moving really fast. Like insane speed. That's how they got out of that room without being affected by the killer virus. Oh come on, you know it's true. (megatonnage@hotmail.com)

It was the peyote. Like father, like son. (changer4508@hotmail.com)

To understand the problem we must first consider who else could speak to dead people. Cole Sear from the Sixth Sense could see dead people but Mulder never showed this propensity before, and the 6th Sense seems to manifest in early childhood Besides, Chris Carter is no M. Night Shyamalan.

Ash from the Evil Dead Trilogy could talk to dead people but they were always trying to eat his head. Of the corpses that Mulder spoke to, only Frohicke seemed capable of noggin consumption. And Mulder has no Boom Stick.

Now judging by the fact that Duchovny has gotten more money than anyone including Fox Networks, Chris Carter or the entire cast combined, coupled with the fact that his character fathered Dana (Super Genius Nookie) Scully's baby, and gets to practice making babies on Tea (Proof of God nookie) Leoni, I'd say that Duchovny has developed a Messiah complex and can speak to the dead like Jesus did to Lazarus. (mrbroe@yahoo.com)

There is no mystery here; Duchovny is simply channeling the power of his also-dead acting career.(baeldrinahr@hotmail.com)

To tease the fanboys and, for one fleeting second before they realized that he was just hallucinating, make them think that the Lone Gunmen were still alive and living in Mexico... (smarko98@aol.com)

It's The X-Files...don't ask why, just accept it and go with that confused feeling. (scribbler@angelfire.com)

Since so few people still watched the series, Chris Carter thought he could get away with it. I hear tell that in one draft, Mulder was accompanied by a small green alien named Gazoo, until Chris found out it infringed on an earlier series which made about as much sense as the X-Files did in its waning years. (Viewaskew33@aol.com)

Maybe it was due to some leftover ectoplasm from the good episode where he hugged his dear departed sister. (changer4508@hotmail.com)

Interacting with the realm of the dead was the only way he could read the final script. (mattara@rocketmail.com)

The Theorizer calculates that the following two entries were the most likely to have the least incorrectness in them. However, if questioned, the Theorizer will deny everything.

Unknown to the audience, Sam Beckett had actually jumped into Mulder's body. Al was just having some fun with him, scrambling his hologram image to look like various people "Fox" had met in the past that Ziggy had acquired from its databanks. (crow_steve@hotmail.com)
