Did my DVR end early or did the episode end with the light on her eye and nothing happening yet?

That is how it ended.

I am pretty irritated with the pace of the episode. We are to believe, that in the span of a couple of hours, Scully figures out how to reverse something that has been setup over the period of decades.

Well it's really just a flaw in their plan and having a leak.

They knew the solution was to give humans they wanted to protect the alien DNA to make them immune to what everyone else was dealing with. So the vaccine/cure already existed and they were already handing it out to their "chosen" people.

The problem is one of the "chosen" didn't like the plan and was tipped off by an informant on not only what the overall plan was, but on what the cure/vaccine was.

Had she never gotten the info, surely it would have taken her longer, but basically having a mole from the other side tell you the plan and the cure, it really speeds your detective work up.

Now I have no idea how they would mass produce a cure given she was the only source for the DNA.

that was sort of my whole issue with the entire 'mini-season'. Felt like they had a predetermined place they wanted to get to and just shoehorned it into the time given.

Well, we obviously weren't going to leave satisfied with only 6 episodes. Fox has already asked Chris Carter for more, and Duchovney(sp?) is definitely on board.

The episode before last, where they met their kind of dopplegangers...I thought maybe that would be an introduction to a reboot with the new Mulder and Scully, with them going to the originals all the time for help.

I would probably watch that.

Yeah, I'm not an expert in the field of vaccines and DNA sequencing, but the bullshit alarm was going off in my head. I feel like it would take weeks, months, even years to produce that vaccine in quantities sufficient to put a noticeable dent into the planned near extinction event.

Nevermind the implausibility of Scully manufacturing it so quickly herself, as others have mentioned.

Yeah but wasn't that CDC experts? And not an (occasionally practicing) medical doctor / FBI agent working solo in some random lab in the basement of a hospital.

How did Miller make it back with Mulder from South Carolina so quickly if the roads were that bad?

I'm sure I've missed something, because I'm only on season 5 from the regular series of X-Files, but how did Old Smokey come to be in charge of everything? Where were all of the other men that was behind this?

And do we know how he came to be in the hospital all burned and stuff? Did that happen in the last season?

My biggest question is that they did years worth of research on subjects, and in this last episode, kinda led us to believe that those that were abducted were the chosen ones. Well, those that were abducted all got that strange sinus cancer when they pulled their chips out.

So if the general populace doesn't have the chips, and Scully gives them a vaccine made from her DNA, won't they get that cancer?
