Mulder and Scully are called in by a local field office when the body of a long dead FBI agent is found by a local police detective in Aubrey, Missouri. The dead FBI agent died in 1942 but the detective who found the body, Inspector B.J. Morrow, can't quite explain why she was digging in the location where it was found. The local police also have a strange murder in their hands: a young woman who had the 'sister' carved on her chest. When Morrow's boss, Lt. Brian Tilman, first sees the crime photos he thinks the FBI has information on the most recent murder but the photos are nearly 60 years old. There is a connection of some sort between the dead and the living however. Written by garykmcd

Just after the teaser, Mulder and Scully are looking at the dental radiographs. Scully points out that the man is "congenitally" missing a lower left bicuspid. It is impossible to tell if the reason why the tooth is no longer present is congenital from the radiograph. Congenital is a condition existing at birth. See more »

Where's Waldo?
24 April 2006 | by (Roy, Utah) – See all my reviews

Aubrey is a well-paced and very dramatic episode. It's one of my favorites from season two. Terry O'Quinn makes his first appearance on the x-files and he does a great job as Lieutenant Brian Tillman. Aubrey is a murder mystery that keeps you wondering who the real murderer is. You also don't know how BJ is connected to Cokely, the serial killer. This episode is superbly directed by Rob Bowman, an x-files regular. Even with the darkness of the episode, there are some lighter moments that help make this episode well-paced. One of those moments is the scene with Mulder and the pile of the sunflower seeds and him discussing about how he may be genetically disposed to liking sunflower seeds. I also like towards the end when Mulder appears as Chaney, the dead FBI agent. Excellent directing. I highly recommend Aubrey for viewing that keeps the suspense and drama at it's highest.
