The Big Gap
"Mulder and Scully didn’t exactly behave like they were estranged."
And we did not need to see a paranormal-deprived and depressed Mulder tell Scully to get back to her nunnery. What else would she do except "God's work" at the hospital?
"unlike the tension of the original series, which was compelling and sexy, this tension feels soured and rotten"
No, I don't think so. There was always something rotten on the good ship X-Shipper. Shippers were able to imagine all kinds of Fox/Dana steam and violins off stage during the original run of The X-Files. That all had to be imagined because it was not in the scripts.
|reminder of the past: another doomed ship?|
Through the original series and into "My Struggle II", we saw Scully transformed into someone who is now primed and ready to recognize a conspiracy and take action to fight it. Mulder's transformation was completed in "Babylon", with Fox now having experienced enough paranormal phenomena to bring him to the point of discussing God and position him in life where he is ready to believe in some spiritual "woo".
