X-File Episodes when Scully shows who is really in charge

17 March 2023
Throughout the course of the X-Files, both Mulder and Scully are portrayed as highly competent and intelligent investigators, with their own unique strengths and weaknesses. While Mulder is often portrayed as the driving force behind the investigations, there are a number of episodes in which Scully takes the lead and does the majority of the detective work.

One such episode is "Irresistible" (Season 2, Episode 13), in which Scully takes the lead on a case involving a serial killer who has a fetish for removing hair and fingernails from his victims. Throughout the episode, Scully is the one who interviews witnesses, analyzes evidence, and ultimately figures out the identity of the killer. Mulder, on the other hand, is more of a supporting character in this episode, offering emotional support to Scully as she deals with the traumatic events of the case.

Another episode where Scully takes the lead is "Beyond the Sea" (Season 1, Episode 13). In this episode, Scully is contacted by a convicted killer who claims to have psychic abilities and offers to help her solve a case involving a kidnapped young woman. As the investigation progresses, Scully takes charge of the case and is the one who ultimately saves the kidnapped woman's life. Mulder, meanwhile, is dealing with his own personal demons and does not play as active a role in the investigation.

In "Paper Hearts" (Season 4, Episode 10), Scully takes the lead on a case involving a serial killer who may have been responsible for the disappearance of Mulder's sister. Scully conducts most of the interviews and gathers the evidence, while Mulder struggles with his emotions and ultimately confronts the killer.

Finally, in "Elegy" (Season 4, Episode 22), Scully takes charge of a case involving a string of murders at a hospital. While Mulder is sidelined with a cold, Scully is the one who interviews witnesses, pieces together the clues, and ultimately solves the case. Throughout the episode, Scully's intelligence and deductive skills are on full display, showcasing her as a formidable investigator in her own right.
