Storyline

Mulder and Scully are sent to Chicago after after a telemarketing firm receives anonymous threats. The company is particularly concerned as they had an employee go postal in a different office and wants to avoid another dangerous incident. One of the company's employees, Gary Lambert, is convinced that his boss Greg Pincus is literally a monster who no one else can see for what he really is. Lambert takes everyone, including Mulder, hostage but during the incident Mulder realizes that Lambert may not be the deranged madman everyone is making him out to be. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The title comes from the French and means "a madness shared by two," referring to the concept of a shared psychotic disorder. See more »

Goofs

When Mulder is talking to Scully after the hostage situation, he incorrectly refers to Helsinki Syndrome. The correct clinical name is Stockholm syndrome. (Though it is possible that this is a jokey reference to the same error in Die Hard.) See more »

Quotes

Mulder: You have to be willing to see.
Scully: I wish it were that simple.
Mulder: Scully, you have to believe me. Nobody else on this whole damn planet does or ever will. You're my one in five billion.

Season 5 continues to deliver!
4 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Folie a deux is another strong episode from the great season 5. Its an episode that doesn't always get loads of fan attention but that doesn't stop it from being a good one. Not only that but at times the X-Files kind of forgets about being scary, and, well, just isn't. This episode I'm happy to say has a few decent Mulder and Scully moments, quite a chilling ending, and a fair few scares. There's some great shots, where, without giving anything away. There's a shot of someone, their looking seemingly normal, then a dramatic music note, it shows them again and things aren't quite how you first thought. It's in a way predictable yet its dramatic and effective. A great more scary episode from the already strong season 5. Folie A Deux is a good one, don't miss it!
