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 »


Scully: I guess it's why we go to Aubrey.
Fox Mulder: Yes. And, also, I've always been intrigued by women called BJ.

Oh brother
16 August 2014 | by (Okinawa, Japan) – See all my reviews

The only reason I gave it a 6 is for the tripped-out visual effects. Outside of some interesting camera work, I consider my time wasted. The story begins with a promising intro: a woman gripped by inexplicable visions is led to a terrible discovery. Nice, where's it go from there? Down the rabbit's hole? More like down the Hershey tubes.

There are too many instances that will make you say, "Oh, give me break!" For example, the female victims of a serial killer have the word "SISTER" carved on their chest. The duo is studying the bones of a male victim, but they can't quite guess what was carved on his chest. Could it be--oh I don't know--"BROTHER"?

Midway through the writers lost control of the wheel, and the plot goes swerving across the road like a drunk driver. They desperately try to reconcile the mess with an utterly flimsy explanation. On second thought, I'll give it a 5.
