Well ... they did, but it was such a "pulled it out of their asses" resolution, that most of the fans just rolled their eyes and said, "Starlight? Uh, whatever."

I didn't mind the Starlight thing *too* much, except that they threw in the serial killer twist which they'd already done with "Paper Hearts."

And it never explained what happened in between--all those Samantha clones, growing up as Jeffery Spender's sister, why didn't *he* remember her, etc. Why didn't the "starlight" take her sooner, saving her from alien/government experimentation altogether, rather than later?

I love how Chris Carter claimed for 9 years that they knew how the last episode would go, and everything was leading up to it...only to find out that he really didn't, big surprise. (If LOST burns me, I'm never watching a sci-fi/mystery show again!!) We should have known the Samantha "answer" was the beginning of the horrible end.

But it was a tear-jerker of an episode...

Ooh ... three years ago, I could still have rattled off the episode names, but now they're slipping away.

Ooh! It's "Closure." It was a two-parter, I think, but I don't recall the name of the first part.

I can hardly remember the episode names, I can't believe I remembered Paper Hearts. They almost never had anything to do with the episode, they were just...odd.

So the name of the two episodes is called "Closer"and "Paper Hearts"? Do you remember what season that is from? I only have season one in my collection for now, but I could possible find that episode if I knew which season it is from...

Paper Hearts was not part of the two-part resolution to the Samantha storyline. Paper Hearts is from the fabulous season 4, and was a stand-alone episode (and an awesome one, at that!).

Closure is from season 7. And I just looked it up, and the first part of that two-parter is called Sein Und Zeit.

Paper Hearts wasn't part of that two parter. I think it was a season or two before.

It involved a child serial killer that kept telling Mulder he'd killed Samantha, and that the whole alien abduction memory was false. I think he could tap into Mulder's memories.

"Closure" had a similar plot, they find another child serial killer and Mulder becomes convinced (again) he killed Samantha, but it turns out to be coincidence. But it leads him to find what happened to her.

I want to say it's Season 7 and Paper Hearts is 5 or 6...?

Oooh, cue the theme!

I'm glad I was right on Closure's season, I haven't totally lost it!

We need to start a thread for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and see how many of us turn up in there as well!
