In "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster," not only did the show bring back stoner characters played by Tyler Labine and Nicole Parker. “Mulder & Scully Meet The Were-Monster” is the first episode of the show's new season that feels like a legit defense of season 10's existence. Breather Episode: It's basically a standard X-Files episode only entirely played for laughs. The lighthearted tone also makes the restoration of Mulder's failing.
After confronting Mann, his suspicions are proven only half correct: Mann is not a man who turns into a lizard person, but rather a lizard person who turns into a human. Mann apparently became a shape-shifter after being bitten by a human some days before and laments the existential hopelessness of human life, full sentience, and modern society.
In the end, it is revealed that Pasha was the true killer, and that Mann was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Upon learning this, Mulder rushes to tell Mann, who quickly brushes off the news.
He informs Mulder that he will be going into a 10,year hibernation, but that he was glad to have met Mulder. Then, before Mulder's eyes, Mann turns back into his original lizard person form and scampers off into the night. Mulder thus witnesses a paranormal happening, and his faith is renewed.

Of the standard Werewolf mythology. This time round, a normal and happy monster gets bitten by a human and undergoes the horrible transformation into The episode does this to the show as a whole. Mulder goes through the episode depressed, frustrated and feeling that his life's work has been a waste, and that the paranormal events he's been trying to prove are all just nonsense and drivel spouted by crazy addled Unreliable Narrators.
The episode seems to confirm all of this Eating the Eye Candy: Mulder spends a rather longer time staring at a sleeping Scully than strictly required in order to verify that the purpose of the hidden corridor was indeed to peep on people. Also, the hotel manager clearly enjoys watching Mulder sleeping in his red Speedos.
