Feud in the hotseat
15 November 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

New possibilities arise from out of the ashes of failed relationships; 'Brave New World' offers new paths for both Scully's wife and Masters, and there's a ray of light amid the sorrow in both cases. This episode strikes a nice balance between the two, and natural character growth is just fun to watch.. Especially between Masters and Virginia; not just because a new sexual dimension is added to their relationship, but because she's finally moving up in stature. She's not a physician, but still deserves recognition of what she brings to the table. And I have to admit, it's kind of exciting when she can impress her highly educated boss.
