Storyline

FBI agent Fox Mulder is called in by a small-town sheriff to investigate a raft of inexplicable killings. The acts are random and committed by well-respected members of the community. Scully performs an autopsy, and Mulder turns to the Lone Gunmen with her findings. He concludes that the local municipality is using a banned pesticide that could lead to psychoses. Having found an electronic device smashed at every killing, he begins to suspect someone of making subliminal suggestions. Written by garykmcd

Kill 'Em All
19 April 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

Although the title of this episode is unimaginative, the episode itself is not. Blood has a very interesting concept. People in a small town are ingesting a chemical substance that is prompting some of them to exercise homicidal urges through digital displays on electronic devices. I like the different layout of this episode. We see Edward Funsch, who's afraid of blood, receive a homicidal message at the beginning of the episode. He doesn't act on it, yet. We then see him progress through the episode while Mulder is investigating other murders by different people in the same town. Usually an episode will just show the one person performing the murders, or it would predictably show him murder, then someone else, and so on, kind of like a contagion. Edward Funsch kind of bookends the story, which is quite unique. He's able to resist it for so long, while others are giving into it. The Lone Gunmen add a nice taste to this episode, with Frohike being all hot for Scully. Also, I like Mulder and Detective Spencer's separate conversations when Spencer mentions the suspect playing right field. Just be sure you avoid being out in a field when crop spraying is happening. You never know what's really in those chemicals.
