    Overall, one of the stronger issues in a four-parter which has taken its time in crafting an intriguing, pervasive story in series lore. ‘Came Back Haunted' here balances well the international travelogue & potential mytharc mystery of Mulder's experience with the political wrangling Scully has to face to find him, in the best traditions of the show, while still keeping the narrative moving. Throw in a less than oblique nod to a show that is very inspired by The X-Files, and you have a great build up to what will hopefully be an exciting finish to this multi-part story. Read Full Review
