The pilot episode is dialogue driven. However, I can think of six visual pieces of the puzzle they have to solve.
- The corpse they exhume is non-human.
- The unidentified metal device, found in the corpse’s nose, which Scully saves from being destroyed in the fire, and which in the final scene is filed away in the Pentagon.
- The watches – one traditional, one digital – showing 9.03.
- Mulder’s compass.
- Scully’s computer.
- The two skin growths on each of the victims.
Can you think of any more? Have I missed something?
