While on a weekend off in the small New England town of Ammab Beach, Scully comes across a grocery store full of people who tried to gouge out their own eyes. The people have no idea why they did this to themselves. On the telephone, Mulder tells her it all sounds like witchcraft but she isn't so sure. One woman in the store, Melissa Turner, seemed unaffected by it all but her reputation of being a witch works against her. She was widowed the year before and her boyfriend Dave stabbed himself in the eye and died in the grocery store incident. Scully focuses on Melissa's daughter and in particular, the young girl's doll. Written by
Did You Know?
Original name of this episode was Chinga - but it was rejected by Fox as it may have been an objectionable word in some Spanish speaking areas. The name 'Bunghoney' was substituted - a rude sounding but nonsensical term. Chinga was later brought back, it means f*ck (or a similar, general expression of disappointment). See more
At 23:46 into the episode after Scully has finished taking her bath, she walks past a mirror and a crew person wearing a blue shirt is briefly but clearly visible. See more
