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 »

Return of the horror
11 May 2011 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Season 5 has a lot of "conspiracy" episodes and "spy" plots. I found myself missing the good old episodes involving investigations of strange creatures. I was missing the horror. And here we have this episode - Folie a Deux - a pure horror episode! The story runs very smooth, no rushing and no boring moments. There are some nice chilling shots (with a reference to the good old zombie movies), nice cinematography and well-paced story. The plot (although nothing original) could sustain even a full-length movie, I believe. It is very interesting also how Moulder approaches the case - skeptical at the beginning, hesitant after some clues and finally - near psychotic and put into a hospital due to his absurd statements. To me it was one of the best episodes from Season 5.
