Storyline

Mulder and Scully investigate the case of a woman, a nurse in an elder care facility, who claims she was raped at the facility by an invisible spirit. Nurse Michelle Charters has the bruises to prove the attack but not surprisingly, no one will take her seriously given the nature of her claim. The elder care home is primarily for Alzheimer's patients and the doctor there is experimenting with a known drug, one that has not been very successful in the past. He is getting positive results however, even if he can't quite explain them. Incidents continue to occur making believers of the agents who believe that the residents are getting drugs from someone else in the institution. Written by garykmcd

Innovative and creepy episode
18 October 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is a refreshing chapter from the series. Since "Shadows" (1x05), any "invisible" monster has appeared.

In this chapter, Mulder and Scully have to investigate a nurse's rape, apparently made by an invisible being. Their investigations will lead to some deeply-saved secrets, involving some of the residents, and workers, too.

Apart from the main tagline, we can see Scully fully recovered from Duane Barry's series. In fact, she is leading the investigation, while Mulder is more reticent to do so.

It has great moments, panic scenes, and scary plot. Also, the typical paper exchange makes this chapter really a "almost" must see. Not the best one, but sure a great, worth watching episode.
