Did You Know?

In a conversation about Melissa Turner being suspected of witchcraft with the Chief, Scully mentions that it wouldn't be the first time such false accusations had been made in local parts. This is a reference to the fact that Maine was a part of Massachusetts when the Salem Witch Trials were going on.See more »
Anachronisms: At approximately 9:30, when Scully is talking to the police officer after reviewing the security footage, she refers to him as "Captain Bonsaint" when, clearly visible in the frame, his name badge reads "Chief Bonsaint".See more »
