Storyline

Scully and Mulder are called into investigate a strange case of a man found sitting in his backyard having been exsanguinated and having two bite marks on his neck. The man's daughter, Teena, only remembers seeing what she calls red lighting. They've barely started the investigation when they learn there has been a virtually identical attack on the west coast. When they meet that man's daughter, Cindy, she is identical to Teena. Deep Throat provides Mulder with information about the Litchfield experiments, attempts at gene modification where children, named Adam and Eve, were produced. They trace a common link from the girls to Dr. Sally Kendrick who was fired for her position at a fertility clinic for experimenting in eugenics. The agents take the girls into protective custody but it's not the girls who need protecting. Written by garykmcd

Eve, meet Eve and Eve and Eve.
4 February 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Mulder and Scully set about investigating the death of a man found, exsanguinated, in his back yard and Mulder starts coming up with the usual set of possibilities that makes Scully roll her eyes. However, when a similar death occurs in another part of the country and the duo head on over to check it out they are stunned by what they see. The deceased man had a daughter who is the spitting image of the daughter of the OTHER deceased man. The link between the girls seems to go back to a Dr. Sally Kendrick (Harriet Harris), who has been experimenting in eugenics, with potentially deadly results.

Directed by Fred Gerber and written by Chris Brancato and Kenneth Biller, it's perhaps telling that none of these people ever worked on anything beyond this episode. Some fans, myself included, really enjoyed this little slice of strangeness while others hated it and will cite it as an example of the worst that the show can offer.

Duchovny and Anderson are, of course, great, Harriet Harris is pretty good in both of her roles and twins Erika and Sabrina Krievins do an acceptable job as the two young girls who may be in danger, or who may end up being a danger to others.

It's not up there with the best episodes, but it's far above the very worst and benefits from a fun second half that takes a few interesting twists and turns.
