In the confessional at her local church, Scully tells a priest that she is responsible for the death of young girl. In flashbacks, Scully and Mulder are called in when a young woman is found dead in the street not far from her home. No one has any idea how she got there as she was severely handicapped and was not mobile. Scully's parish priest asks her to look into the case as the girl's parents are also members of the parish. As the case progresses, Scully will come to face evil and must also come to terms with loss of her own daughter. Written by garykmcd

When Scully takes Emily's picture from her desk and tearfully looks at it, the piano theme playing is taken directly from Tchaikovsky's fourth Symphony, 2nd movement. See more »


The seraphim are described as having four faces; those of a lion, ox, eagle, and man. This is incorrect, as cherubim have four faces; seraphim only have one, which is covered by a pair of wings. See more »

All Souls
12 February 2007 | by (New York City, New York) – See all my reviews

All Souls is one of my most favorite episodes of the X-Files. Of course, this is the writer's spin on the legend of the Nephilim. The story of offspring of "fallen angels" go much further than what the X-Files presented. The global accounts of "giants in the Earth" is part of the Nephilim story. The writers of the bible called these "giants" the Nephilim. In other parts of the world and other cultures these "creatures" were called by other names, but described in the same manner. There is "talk" that the nephilim are still amongst us. All in all, the story is very touching and in some parts very heart wrenching. Gillian Anderson gave a stunningly superb performance here.
