Storyline

Scully and Mulder are called in by a local New Hampshire Sheriff when there is evidence of a satanic cult operating in his town. One teen has already died and paranoia has now gripped everyone there. There is little doubt that a group of teenagers did go off into the woods to perform some type of ceremony but Scully in particular scoffs at any suggestion they were anything more than kids acting out. As the investigation progresses however it becomes apparent that some of the staff are involved in devil worship but the danger it turns out lies outside the group. Written by garykmcd

8.0?! Were viewers blind?!
13 July 2013 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

First of all, I loved the end with Mrs. Paddick Morgan and Wong saying goodbye. Two of the series most brilliant writer (Squeeze and its sequel Tooms, Beyond the Sea, Little Green Men) leaving the show for their own show, which gets canceled and makes them come back in the series' fourth installment. And they're leaving with yet another stylish episode.

The first episode to touch dark things like witches, Satan, cult, sacrifices. It gave me the creeps. Mrs. Paddick is an amazing villain, one of the series' scariest so far and can compete with Pfaster of the previous episode and Eugene Tooms.

It was what a monster-of-the-week should be, clever, intense and engrossing and season 2 mostly managed to accomplished that, while season 1 had several cracks in the genre.

Overall, a very strong episode of a very strong season. A wild ride. 9.4/10.
