If characters or narrative agents who reappear in a story's linear syntagm are so disposed symmetrically--say, FBI Agent Mulder alone and lost in the woods in an episode's opening and closing scenes, and Agent Scully alone and lost in a building in a second and a penultimate scene--then we seem to have an inclusio, a case of symmetrical englobement or emboxment or ring composition based on themes of locality.
