The ‘Shippers’ News
A season by season glimpse into the ‘shipper moments of the series
I will try to touch on the highlights and probably will miss a few moments, which hopefully you’ll be more than happy to fill in the missing details.
- The bra and chonies show a la the pilot. I was not a fan of Scully’s “damsel in distress” framing considering she’s the physician and Mulder was just another weird coworker.
- In “The Jersey Devil” Scully is reluctant to tell Mulder she has a date. The beginnings of sexual tension.
- When Mulder’s ex lady friend comes sniffing around in “Fire” Scully’s reaction is very, “I will hurt this lady!” which scanned to me as jealousy.
- Mulder’s anguish and despair sex with the vampire lady (Duch’s real life girlfriend at the time!) in 3.
- There’s some hugging and comforting in the “Irresistible”.
Here’s where things start to cook!
- Scully is mega jealous of Dr. Bambi in the infamous cockroach episode, “War of the Coprophages”
- Scully ends up bunking with Mulder, except she can’t remember how it happened. Unfortunately, Jose Chung can’t explain it to them either.
- The entire episode “Never Again”. Clearly, Scully was trying to random fuck and tattoo it out! All her unresolved sublimated feelings for Mulder. And I’m certain that’s why Mulder was on vacation.
- Mulder throws a surprise party for Scully and also commits her senior thesis – at least parts of it – to memory.
- Nearly bangs a shape shifter disguised as Mulder. Mulder seems a tad bitter about it.
- Mulder does some weird Elvis move in order to get Scully to dance with him. They dance and it’s all very hot. “Post Modern Prometheus”
- Luke Wilson tries to blow up Mulder’s spot. Mulder definitely gets jealous. “Bad Blood”
- Hot geek girl in bad make up and hideous nostril ring makes Scully jealous, because Mulder is kind of into her. “Kill Switch”
- “Detour” boasts yet another shabbily constructed plot device – trapped in the woods – which enables Mulder and Scully to cuddle and be playful. Under the guise of trying to stay warm and not die.
- Scully does not like this Diana Fowler person (Mimi Rogers). Apparently, Fowler had a relationship with Mulder.
Stay tuned for the great ‘shipper moments from the last three seasons and the two movies!
