Quotes

Mulder: Mulder.
Scully: Mulder, please tell me I can go home.
Mulder: Oh, hey, Scully. How's the stakeout?
Scully: Well, the furnace broke and I can just about see my breath in here.
Mulder: Ouch. I'm sorry to hear that.
Scully: That... and I've witnessed a couple hundred things I'd like to erase from my brain. Eww. But as of yet, no mystery woman.

Predation and Passion in Peyton Place
26 October 2006 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

Squeaky-clean stay-at-home moms aren't the only ones in danger when feelings of repression and revenge prompt a ravening wraith to go on a rampage. While Scully tracks a shifter of a different shape in the seamy part of town, Mulder gets the real Rob Petrie treatment in suburbia. Mulder finds that the monster isn't the only one who can't look into a mirror as Scully supplies the key clue to the killer's identity.

This isn't a bad thriller though it's a tad predictable with a stereotypical theme. It's not really much more than a darker reworking of the season 6 episode "Arcadia" - which is a pity since the lighter tone of the previous episode suited the subject matter perfectly, IMHO! I wonder if that slotted closet door is the same one Scully was hiding behind in the earlier episode... Anyway, the red herrings in THIS episode are better distributed, making the plot crisper (IMHO). If only the theme had been more imaginative this would have been one of the greats! Hell hath no fury... yeah yeah yeah...
